Tell me everything you want to share about cold war, bonus point for the 1953-1962 period. Some infograph would be awesome too

Countless countries were thrown into pointless civil wars and suffered under insular regimes for decades, people today still believe giving up everything to a "people's republic" is the way to go.

I'd say communism was a pretty good meme.

>Churchill makes a speech introducing the idea of an "iron curtain" in 1946 but is not reelected, it's later revealed he wanted to outright invade russia.
>Huge incentive for businesses to want communist governments to fall so they can expand into vast new markets, businesses have always had a lot of influence in the politics of many large capitalist states including the u.s.

What was going in in Central/Eastern Europe between 1945 and 1949, lad?
>>
>>559537
I don't see the post the guy is replying to, but saying the west had strategic and economic interests in eastern Europe is pretty fucking trivial imho.
>>
>>559547
So you're saying it wasn't a factor?
Not just eastern europe, russia and parts of asia too.

>>559622
What?
>>
>>559452

are you implying things were better the years before?
>>
>>559640
Yes.
>>
>>559649

got any stats to share?
>>
>>559636
You honestly implied that commies in the 1980s had such a shit economy that it somehow set them 50 years back, if that's not a proof of communist inferiority then I don't have a clue what is.

Geopolitics such as Mackinder warned that Russian control of the "Heartland" would make them unbeatable
He was right to a point

Right up to the point he failed to predict the development of nuclear weapons and ICBMs

Mahan was much more on the ball. Global trade is oceanic, and the US Navy is the dominant force on the seven seas.
