Good topic alex, When the cold war first started the United States and the Soviet Union were competing on making military weapons. These countries were to scared to fight each other because they were to strong. So at the end thats why the cold war was named like this.

Did you know that:
1. There are more nuclear weapons nowadays because of the cold war
2. The Cold War caused the space race
3. The dangers of nuclear material are immense. After the meltdown of Chernobyl, thousands had to be evacuated as the radiation increased (even more than that of Hiroshima and Nagasaki)
4. It cost the US about $8 trillion 
5. It was predicted by Adolf Hitler
6. At one point, the US had more support from communist countries than the Soviet Union
