*Stalin and the murdering of millions of his people under his rule*
@Hatori, while yes this is an atrocity committed by the U.S.S.R., it is not a conflict of the Cold War. A conflict of the Cold War is classified as a moment of tension between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R., such as the the Cuban Missile Crisis. Or a conflict between two nations that are allies of opposing super powers. Such as Vietnam or Korea.
@Hatori, wait...are you saying socialism may actually be a very dangerous ideology? :O
@Hatori, killed more than Hitler, but was on the winning side
I knew that Bono bastard was up to no good!
Those are a lot of diapers...
@seeUpee, Well, the whole ordeal was basically a bunch of national superpowers just constantly shîtting their pants.
Don't forget about Afghanistan
I mean what’s a “conflict” really?
While these are conflict of the Cold War, I believe what is meant by the statement,"The Cold war had no real conflicts," is that the U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R. never actually fought head on against each other and drew blood. Even so, the original statement is ignorant, and is disrespectful to the troops who fought in conflicts of the Cold War.
@TheCoolestBean, yeah, I've never heard anyone say "real" conflict, it's always no direct combat. We fought with them throughout the entirety of the Cold War, just never directly.
