We finally have achieved our first nuclear weapon! Joe 1 named after our own Joseph Stalin allowed us to get closer to reaching our next bomb, the hydrogen bomb.
Formation of NATO
Americans have recently decided to make a treaty with Canada and the rest of North America. We have decided that we need our own pact with countries, so we created the Warsaw Pact.
1950 - 1953
We gave weapons to our friends in North Korea with tanks and such to allow them to plan a surprise attack on South Korea. This was called the 38th parallel. However, the U.S helped the South Koreans and allowed them to even the battle and bring the line back up to the 38th parallel.
1950 - 1953
Vietnam was divided into two seperate areas at a 17 degree latitude. Diem ruled as a dictator and sent out communist guerrillas called Vietcong. We supported them while the U.S fought on the other side. This was a major introduction of guerrilla warfare.
The British decided that they need to help their little buddies in Isreal to help them get back the Suez canal, however with pressure from us and the U.S, we forced them to get out of the place and give it to Egypt.
We finally achieved the launching of the first satellite into space! Way before those Americans will ever launch their's. Showing we are the better country.
Cuban Missile Crisis
The dastardly United States attempted to invade the Bay of Pigs causing the lovely Nikita Khrushchev to give Cuba missiles to fight the U.S. Castro soon backed the communist revolutions in Latin America due to this support.
