Questions related to Cold War
Why Read War and Peace? explained in: https://tableau.uchicago.edu/articles/2013/04/why-read-war-and-peace "...Tolstoy himself explained: “It is not a novel, still less an epic poem, still less a historical chronicle. War and Peace is what the author wanted and was able to express, in the form in which it is expressed.” Readers will be surprised by the book's modern devices: stream of consciousness, cinematic point of view, shifting narrative voices. The great twentieth-century Russian author Isaac Babel said that when he read Tolstoy, he felt as if the world was writing itself...".

And if we discussed? "War" and "Peace" in a debate, which to be enriching for all, must be totally dispassionate and fundamentally responsible
The end of the Cold War era between the poles of international powers and competitive displays of conventional arsenals of armaments, including weapons of mass destruction and nuclear weapons, does not mean the return of world peace, the restoration of international security and the cessation of the arms race. Do you agree?
Looking for well-researched studies about the demise of the climate change movement after the Carter presidency.
Contrary to Europe the movement seems to have died off more. Subjective impression. What were the drivers?
In which channel has the green movement morphed into? Gender? Equality?
Pakistan and India have strained relations since their independence in 1947. The Cold war between US and USSR has impacted the world, and world was practically divided in two blocks: Warsaw and NATO. The current Cold War Between China and the USA and its allies is likely to have similar effects. I want to examine as to how US-China Cold war ramify in regional balance of power in South Asia, especially India and Pakistan?
For example, I am particularly interested in the consequences of the UK's new global policy for India, China, and Australia. Could a well-designed agent-based computer model, using appropriate data including about individual world leaders, help predict any dangerous consequences of this new policy?
Dear RG community. I have a question that probably most of you are not facing. But where are the citations in RG to papers written in the former URSS? First-class Soviet Journals such that Journal of experimental and theoretical Physics (JETP and its letters) and Low-temperature Physics (from Kharkiv)
Thanks to various inputs to this thread, the topic of discussion became wider & more interesting: The kind of science made in the former URSS: Did it become after the cold war a forgotten ghost? or Did it spread all over the world? or Did former URSS scientists change their science schools for new ones?
This is a theoretical question that endeavors to address contemporary issues. My frame of reference is that world peace is the ideal. In conflict situations, what form of geopolitical combat might be the best or the most effective pathway to peace and national and international security?
The Nuclear Arms Non - Proliferation and Prohibition Treaty is a United Nations document aimed at prohibiting, preventing and controlling nations from manufacturing and stock piling of nuclear weapons to be used aggressively on other nations.
Unfortunately this is 73 years after the end of the second world war, and 27 years after the end of the cold war between the United States and the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
Yet in the 21st century, Iran and North Korea are posing threats to the international community through manufacturing, stockpiling of nuclear arsenals in the violation of UN treaties. Let's believe North Korea that they are suspending tests of their nuclear sites, but we would appreciate if they also dismantle their Nuclear technologies. That is a very big step in the truce agreement.
In as much as we are joining "Vision 2030" , the peace, unity and safety of the universe should be promoted and highlighted in our individual and collective endeavours.
There should be a clarion call to protect, preserve and save the human race from extinction. We should all call humanity to rise up and care for our environment from environmental degradation, pollution, and from biological and nuclear warfare which is starring at us waiting for whom to strike first. The issue of climate change should be a concern to all and sundry. those who bear the brunt of the whole problem in the society are the majority of the poor masses and the down - trodden in the society.
The United Nations Security Council should convene a conference for all its member states, and stress the need for global peace in this millenium starting with individual peace. If we fail to have individual peace which is a tranquility of the mind, we can't have world peace.
The fight and talk about the stock piling of nuclear and biological arsenals should not be left alone for the US and its Allies. It should involve us all, because its everyone's concern.
Those nations that violate the Nuclear Arms Non - Proliferation and Prohibition Treaty should be placed on sanctions and ostracised by The united Nations.
All nations should team up against against potential aggressors, so as to avoid the mistakes of the League of Nations that gave rise to the United Nations.
The United Nations should rise to its responsibilities by the maintenance of international peace and security.
If the US, NATO and its Allies could fight together and oust an Aggressor from his seat during Late Saddam Hussein's annexation of Kuwait, firing inter- continental ballistic and scud missiles into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Israel, thereby threatening the peace and security in the Middle East, how much less Iran, Syria, North Korea et al.
There's need for the United Nations Security Council to act as a globo - cop in putting pressure on nations that fail to ratify the Conventions on The Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), because a lot of atrocities take place in the countries concerned.
Can one imagine over - qualified women barred from getting choice jobs because they refuse to be bed - matted to get their fundamental human right?
Can one imagine women suffering violence from their family members et al - being refused care and money for their health needs and challenges?
Can one imagine husbands and family members refusing to take care of their sexual partners, that are in labour leading to death?
Can one imagine half - baked mediocre women being placed in very high positions to boss their superiors in education, knowledge and otherwise because they met men's conditions?
Can one imagine victimization of women in the academia not minding the intelligibility of people concerned because they refused to meet men's conditions?
Can one imagine some women working without being able to satisfy their socio - economic and political conditions?
There is no need ratifying the CEDAW document at public notice without implementing it, ie behind the scene violate the human rights of women.
There are countries that satisfy their women's needs CEDAW or No CEDAW.
May it suffice us to note that world peace starts with upholding the human rights of women, children and everyone. If women and children are happy, then the family is happy and no - one will think of doing evil because women's opinion will be sought for the good of the society.
I am looking for some possible explanations about why international relations scholars failed to predict the end of the Cold War. Additionally, I'm searching for texts that address this question, and I'd love to know where to begin looking.
An article by Irek Sabitov, a Russian journalist, and myself will appear in the Winter 2020 edition of the U.S. Navy War College Review. Our article concerns the April 1969 North Korean downing of a U.S. Navy EC-121 spy plane in the Sea of Japan.
It’s a well-known Cold War story, but seen from both the U.S. and Soviet sides... with a twist.
On April 15, 1969, the U.S. and Soviet Union took part in a rare, 4-day, joint search-and-rescue (SAR) operation to locate and retrieve the bodies off a U.S. Navy EC-121 spy plane that was shot out of the sky by North Korean fighters.
And yet, despite the fact that three Soviet destroyers took part in this SAR operation, and a Soviet sailor (who we interviewed) said he personally placed human remains into plastic bags and then transferred those body parts to a U.S. ship (USS Turner), the Russians were never given credit for recovering of the dead airmen’s remains and their transfer to U.S. custody.
The draft of a speech to be given by President Nixon five days after the shootdown failed to mention the Russians.
Following the incident, the U.S. Navy handed out photos of the recovered wreckage and coffins of the two EC-121 crewmen’s bodies pulled from the sea. But again, none of the photos’ captions mentioned the Russians.
The photo of a Soviet destroyer (taken by a U.S. Air Force Reserve aircraft) appeared on the front page of the New York Times on April 17, 1969. There was mention of how the destroyer’s whaleboat was to pick up “debris,” but nothing about human remains.
After the recovery effort had ended, a newly-declassified top-secret DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) memorandum described the SAR operation. But, once again, there was no mention of the Russians.
Had the President of the United States and the U.S. Navy deliberately kept the Soviet role in this episode of Cold War history from the American public?

How much does scientific sources provided through the black market contribute to scientific research?
Are there specific countries or political powers who lead this kind of market? Can it be considered a kind of an ongoing cold war?
I don't mean to discuss the ethical implications of the issue as much as the de facto status of the case. How would you feel as a researcher about someone who has written their entire thesis or dissertation using sources obtained from the black market?
The current international world order established in the last days of WWII is showing signs of collapses. China is now moving to the first economic power and is rapidly becoming a significant military power that is now being firmly extended in the south china sea. The resistance on the part of many western nations for the entrance of China in the 5G is being justified for security reason against the CPC. Can the western powers continue any further the rise of the totalitarian power of the CPC as they did with a business as usual attitude in the last 30 years. Last but not the least, the US security military industrial complex needs feeding, needs a new cold war.
There has been two paradigm shifts recently, one in the former red socialist countries(shift from red socialism to socially friendly capitalism in 1991), and one in the former pure capitalist countries(shift from traditional market to green market in 2012), if you think outside the box these two shifts have the structures that will be key to the future cold war....Has anybody thought about what this future paradigm clash structure is or will be? Has anybody wondered who will win the next cold war this time around and why?
When I searched on this I got nothing. On some click, I got an analysis of the journal, Cold War History, but couldn't find the article within that page, even after sorting through 5 pages of articles. I was offered no more pages, even though I know that there were more articles.
During the Cold War between the USA and the Soviet Union, the common man was afforded many opportunities (e.g., low-interest student loans and increased funding of university programs in science, math, and engineering through the The National Defense Education Act). True meritocracy prevailed, where technically-trained individuals from humble backgrounds could quickly rise into positions of great responsibilities with very generous salaries, based solely on their achievements in solving difficult problems. Once the threat to the US oligarchs vanished with the collapse of the Soviet Union, the common man was no longer afforded such largesse - the US oligarchs no longer were so dependent on the common man. The job opportunities then shifted primarily to the business arena, where advancement was commonly based on your relationship with your boss. University tuitions increased exponentially and the interest rates on student loans also increased significantly.
The genius and or bright minds may be born in most unexpected places. With access to education and proper training they may become masters of the most challenging subjects and become future genius capable to drive research, innovation and development of next generation smart technologies.

I am looking for information about the USA foreign politics and how this got involved in the Russian-Georgian war and the relationship that USA has with Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. Also how did these politic affect the Russian-USA relations?
Thank you in advance.
The Soviet Union had a short period of influence in Africa during the Cold-War, however the questions of the Suez Crisis, the Casablanca Bloc and the proxy war in Angola put the Soviets as one of the principal actors in that continent.
Doing research paper on how Rocky IV reflected cold war sentiments and the film's effects on public opinion regarding the cold war. Need this info for context.
Browsing international press of the later 1940s, I found out there were fears/rumours about the Soviets about to mobilize substantial number of German PoWs in their custody in some kind of a Red Wehrmacht.
Any research/reading available? How much or how little substance was there? Where did the news originate?
