Cold War 2nd Period Guyer

  1. 1. Cold War<br />By: Robby Boyer, Chase Hickey, Robert Bergstrom<br />
  2. 2. Introduction<br />In this Project we will be covering the main points in the Cold War and Cuban Missile Crisis. <br />The Cold War was not really a war is was more like a really long battle between the United States and the Soviet Union.<br />We will also be talking about who, what, where, when, and why the war occurred.<br />
  3. 3. Who<br />United States:<br />The Cold War had a huge impact on the struggle for civil rights in the United States.<br />When the United States came out of World War 2 unharmed, while the rest of Europe and Asia had been devastated. <br />The Soviet Union was mad that they had come over and destroyed much of their land. <br />Soviet Union:<br />Joseph Stalin’s insecurity to expand the land provoked the United states into responding with policies of containment. <br />They believed the U.S. nationalism was trying to reduce their security. <br />
  4. 4. What<br />The Cold War was a war between the United States and the Soviet Union.<br />“At the end of World War II the United States and the Soviet Union began a long battle for political, military and technology.”<br />The Soviet Union invented the first Space Race back in the Cold War.<br />
  5. 5. When<br />The Cold War took place between 1946-1991.<br />America’s rivalry with the Soviet Union spurred the longest war in U.S. history. <br />Over four decades the United States nearly spent 13 Trillion dollars on defense.<br />The Cold War lasted more than 40 years and it led the creation of a semi-permanent military industrial complex fed by federal dollars.<br />In spending so much money to create a great defense sector and to create a national infrastructure, Washington had a long period expansion.<br />
  6. 6. Where<br />Research shows the locations for the cold war are:<br />Europe<br />Soviet union<br />Korea <br />Vietnam<br />South America <br />North America<br />Greece <br />Cuba <br />East Asia<br />
  7. 7. Why<br />The United States came out of World War II unharmed, and they nearly destroyed Europe and most of Asia.<br />Another cause of the war is the Soviet Union felt that the United States was trying to reduce their security.<br />
  8. 8. Post War<br />Robert Phillip Hansen was arrested on February 18, 2001, who was one of the United States agents.<br />He was arrested shortly after he left a package under a small bridge, and the area to the FBI was known as a point for illicit exchange.<br />The FBI founded that his arrest was due to his activities as a spy for the Soviet Union, and as well the Russian Federation.<br />He used to be an FBI veteran, they say the 16 years he was in the FBI, he was also a spy for Russia.<br />
  9. 9. Target Question<br />Was there ever a time in the Cold War where it could have become a real war?<br />
  10. 10. Cuban Missile Crisis<br />On October 14, 1962 a U-2 mission over Cuba took pictures showing evidence that provided the missiles hit.<br />The United States congressional election played a huge role in the crisis on Cuba.<br />“Homer Capehart of Indiana demanded president Kennedy order an invasion on Cuba.”<br />The summer of 1962, people gave frequent reports on unusual Soviet activities in Cuba. <br />These Soviet activities followed Fidel Castro’s take over of Cuba and alignment soon after the new government with the Soviet Union. <br />
  11. 11. Points of View<br />United States:<br />The United States point of view on the Cold War was that the Soviet Union was wrong about having a communist government ruled by one dictator named Joseph Stalin.<br />Soviet Union:<br />The Soviet Union believed that the United States was trying to rule them, so they decided they didn’t want to do anything that the Americans told them to.<br />
  12. 12. Group Points of View<br />Chase- Was for the war because he does not like Soviet government and communism <br />Robby- was for the war because he thinks the Untied states should turn Russia into a democracy <br />Robert- Felt like the Untied States Should of stay out of Russia and left them alone. <br />
  13. 13. Conclusion<br />In Conclusion of our project we had talked about the Cold War, also the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Post War.<br /> As you can see cold War was not a war it was more like a battle between communism, the United States wanted the Soviets to be a capitalist democracy. <br />
