Hey,
sorry if there's a thread on this, but searchbar failed me...

I'm doing an assignment on the cold war and i need to know the main basic facts. None of the websites I see give me straight information, so any help?

Brrrrrr

The Cold War... how could you understand this.

So, Russia was all like, "Yo Cuba, let's put these missiles here, and ball on the Americans." Cuba was all like, "Ya bro, let's totally do it." Then, America was all like, "Yo, Cuba, Russia, we got spy planes, dawg, we know what you're up to." And some American advisors were like, "Yeah, let's ****in' invade Cuba." But Kennedy was like, "Nah dude, fighting's not the answer." And Russia was all like, "**** you man, don't make me nuke we're ass." And America's all like, "You better not, you BETTER NOT!" And eventually Russia was like, "Fine man, chill bro, we'll take the nukes out." And everyone lived "happily" ever after.

You should totally just submit that.

Russia and the States decided they didn't like each other. Russia built bombs, the States built bombs. Russia told the States they were gonna nuke them with their new hydrogen bombs. The States got afraid, and retaliating with a small nuke dropped on Russia. This was not however considered a real bomb by the States, and was not recorded as one. Eventually the United Nations stepped in when Russia threatened to drop a 50 megaton bomb called Tsar Bomba on the States. After the Cold War, Russia became much richer, and vastly increased its military strength. This effectively got them caught up to the other countries which had already had the Industrial Revolution long before Russia did, and as a result built up their army massively, making them a superpower as they are today.

Unacceptable. Piss beer, crappy game console, and crappy indie music were not explicitly mentioned. There are also no suggestions of homosexual behavior or black dildos.

This summary gets an F.

After World War Two, Russia wanted a buffer from invasion, so made the eastern bloc. West didn't like it, the two fell out. Started an arms race, which nearly resulted in war several times, the closest being the cuban missile crisis (see StevenJ128's post). That was avoided, and then the arms race continued until the USSR got skint, and the Berlin wall fell. David Hasselhoff was a major reason for this (in his own words). There you go...

I find it sad that so many people come to the Pit (of all places on the internet) to seek help with their homework. What did people do 20 years ago when there was no internet? Or a "Pit" even.

It always amazes me when folks try get info for school projects from UG...such ambition
Nah...

If you can't find anything good on the internet about the cold war then you just didn't try hard enough. And as for your assignment, I don't know how you'd go about citing your source as a user from the pit
