Default Could the Cold War have been avoided?

Nagasaki n Hiroshima?
Roosevelts death/Trumans actions?

I think that it couldn't have been avoided because of the huge difference in ideologies between Russia and USA and neither of the two didn't consider loosing ground

and no, this is not for school, just wondering out of pure curiousity

Hmmmm, that's an interesting question. Personally I think everyone should be thankful that the Cold War was essentially avoided, i.e. neither the USSR or US got blown to shit. However I'm going to agree with you Exus that no it could not have been avoided. The post WWII policies of both nations made it impossible for a conflict not to happen. Each nation took an interest in rebuilding Europe in different ways. Had the US backed out and returned to a state of isolationism, then the USSR would probably still exist today, only much much larger. I presume they would have essentially taken over all of the western world besides the US, and a major war could have taken place.

That one quote, I first saw it in MW2, how history is written by the victors, is so so so true.

What happens when we have a dumbass president?

Shall we list the unnecessary wars during which Republicans held office?

edit: cold war wasn't even a war.

Gee, I thought the color code was the other way around.

editagain: I also love how the stats show how we had a Dem president during the beginning of the Vietnam War, but it's perpetuation when it was clear Vietnam was wasting lives, and the height of the Vietnam war protests, happened during Nixon's administration.
