The Vietnamese and Communists joined together to fight the French, but the US went to help the French. The US were pansies and decided to pull out from the war. Hahaha scared? Good job Vietnam for keeping Communism strong.
When the Americans appointed Dwight Eisenhower as their president (hahahha democracy is a joke), they threatened to attack us, the USSR, if we attacked their interests. Don't get too trigger happy 'Merica.
Cuban Missle Crisis
Considering the fact that the U.S. had missle aimed at the USSR based in Turkey, we had to have some form of protection!
Khrushchev, the one and only, built 42 missile sites in Cuba. The US freaked out, as always, and we argued, but to no avail. Nothing happened. Long live Russia.
Brezhnev and Nixon began this "easing of tensions." There's nothing to be tense about. Just accept that the USSR is better.
The Americans were scared of our weapons, so they decided we needed to "limit" them. Babies.
Invasion of Afghanistan
We decide to occupy Afghanistan and what does the US do? Fund the Muhajideens. Way to fund a group who would soon be your own terrorists. Bravo.
Those Soviets think that the nuclear missiles in Cuba will scare us? That's brinkmanship, they'll back down. We know it. We'll do the same thing, we'll get right to the brink of war and then we'll back down.
1945 - 1989
We are going to totally stop those Communists from spreading. Well just have to help out all of those smaller countries to resist the Soviet.
1945 - 1989
1945 - 1989
Those Russians put up a wall and they think just put up a wall to protect them from the wall. All of the communists live on the other side of the wall, to the east.
So we had to give half of Germany to Russia, but they joined the war against Japan too. That's alright I guess.
1948 - 1951
We were so generous and we provided aid to needy European countries. This worked out very well.
Explosion of Joe 1
Those Soviets made their own atomic bomb. Well Truman thinks that we should make our own, so that exactly what we'll do.
Formation of NATO
This sweet thing got made with a lot of European countries and us. This will will be an ultimate alliance.
Formation of the Warsaw Pact
Those Soviets made a alliance with Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, , and Albania to counter NATO. Don't worry, their alliance wont last long. Our alliance is much stronger.
Suez Canal Crisis
Britain had control of the Suez Canal the Egypt come and takes over the canal, because Britain and us didn't want to fund the building of the Aswan Dam. Others and we didn't think that we should have a presence in Egypt so Britain left.
