Cold War 2.0

Cold war

By David Johanssen

For four decades, America was locked in the Cold War with the Soviet Union and fear of global nuclear annihilation was constant. The 1980s were some of the most politically intense years of the Cold War; the world was split in two, with the Warsaw Pact on one side and NATO on the other. The divide was so impenetrable that it became known as the “iron curtain.” The end of the Cold War in 1991 was supposed to usher in a new era of peace and cooperation, but it didn’t last. Tensions between the US and Russia have been simmering for years. And now, the conflict in Ukraine has pushed the relationship to the brink of full-blown crisis.
