The Cold War was an intense and sometimes dangerous period (1948-1991) of political, economical and military tensions between France, her colonial empire, and her allies versus the United States, Russia and their allies. The Cold War's origins laid in the end of Global War III, right after the defeat of the Mosleist nations, led by England; leaving Russia, France, and America the world's global and only superpowers of the time. As the reconstruction of the world was in progress, disputes between France's expansionist ambitions and Russian and American wishes for a free world collided. With very little compromise in set, the two sides parted and thus began the Cold War. Nearly all nations took part in this conflict. America and Russia were sided by China, Korea, Japan, North England, South Africa, Australia, and their American allies (aka the Washington Pact) while France and her colonial empire were sided with the rest of Europe (aka the European Treaty Organization). Few nations, including India, Afghanistan, Perso-Arabia, Ethiosomalia, Kenya, and Palestine did not take part.
The term "cold war" can be confusing to those who first hear it, as it is actually not a war, but a period of intense competition between two sides. There was no direct military actions since the three superpowers (aka the "Big Three") had nuclear weapons. But mass-use of these weapons could lead to world destruction, so instead, it was expressed by the extensive spread of propaganda, immense aid to allies and groups, military, political, and economic alliances, espionage, conventional and nuclear arms races, the imploring of neutral states, rivalry and competition in space, technology, and sports. The Cold War had a cycle of peace, high tensions, and conflicts. Among the most important events in the Cold War were the London Blockade, Chinese War, the Caribbean War, the U-2 Crisis, the Panama and Nicaragua Crisis, the London Crisis, the Caribbean Missile Crisis, the Egyptian War, the Sectarian Period, the French invasion of Romania, and the "Atlantis" Washington Pact Naval exercises. The US and Russia and France fought proxy wars of various types: in East Asia the US and Russia fought to prevent French colonial aggression, in Africa France blocked any attempts of independence movements fostered by the US and Russia, in Europe where both sides fought to control Europe, and the Caribbean region where France struggles to preserve its rule from the Americans and Russians. However, one thing both sides can agree to was to stay out of nuclear war as much as possiblem so both sides endorsed a period known as the Detente in the 1970s to relieve international tensions.
In the 1980s, inspired by the Detente period, France, under Charles X, pursuaded both sides to put down their differences and encourage international cooperation rather than competition. Charles X introduced twp international programs: negotiation (negotiations; compromise to the other side for them to leave their arms down) and relieve (relieve; reduce military activity and aggression worldwide). Charles' actions opened the world to pursuade the rest of France and its colonial empire that imperialism and aggression are both unjust and encouraged demilitarization from both sides. By 1991, President Steve Wozniak and Charles X of France declared an end of the Cold War, leaving both sides as allies rather than enemies to one another. The Cold War and its events marked a perceptible legacy, and is commonly used in popular culture, especially in media featuring themes of espionage and the dangers of nuclear warfare.
"Big Three Comparison"
Early Tensions (1943-1945)
At the Atlanta Conference in Georgia, Napoleon V, President Roosevelt and Alexander III discussed future war plans and post-war plans. Although both sides wanted the meeting to work out, Napoleon struck disagreements with Alexander and Roosevelt. Probably the most discussed topic was the future of Europe. Napoleon pursuaded the two other leaders to give him control of most of Europe, while allowing England to be split into three different zones of occupation: one American, one French and one Russian. This was due to the destruction France endured and Napoleon wanted to ensure the country's security.
However, Alexander scoffed at him, suspecting he might try to take over them and threaten the rest of the world, starting another world war. He requested that Napoleon can control continental Western Europe, but Scandinavia will have the right to choose their over sovereignty while Russia takes control of Eastern Europe. Roosevelt, in the meantime, somewhat sided with Napoleon, siting that it may help accomplish a post-war goal of restoring order to Europe. Alexander knew that with French forces occupying most of continental Europe, this could severely disadvantage the Russians in the world stage.
And despite disagreements with Napoleon, both Roosevelt and Alexander had plans of their own. Both wanted large spheres of influence in political, economic, and military terms. Both disagreed how their plans should go along. And while this may strain Russian-American relations, this strain would be too temporary in the test of time. Russia wanted to have a sphere of influence over most of Asia while America wanted a sphere of influence over most of the Americas. However, both disagreed about Japan and China. However, Alexander agreed to let the Americans occupy Japan as long as the Russians have a large occupation share of China.
