gaLhered 1,400 Cuban exlles who llved ln Mlaml so Lhey could be Lralned and Lhen over Lhrow

1he Cold War was dlspuLe beLween Lhe u.S. and Lhe u.S.S.8. ln Lhe Cold War no ghung acLually
happened. MosL people would Lhlnk LhaL 8ussla and Lhe u.S. were frlends buL Lhey weren'L. 1he
only reason why Lhey foughL LogeLher ln WWll was because Lhey had a common enemy, whlch
was nazl Cermany. 8ecause Lhe SovleL unlon was communlsL, Amerlca saw Lhem as evll and Lhe
SovleLs saw Amerlca Lhe same way. 1he haLe and dlsLrusL was presenL before, durlng, and aer
Lhe war and even more so aer Lhe SovleL leader found ouL abouL Amerlca dropplng Lhe A-
8omb on Plroshlma. Aer Lhe war was over ln 1943 Lhere were Lwo ma[or leaders ln Lhe world,
Lhe SovleLs wlLh Lhe huge army called Lhe 8ed Amy and Amerlca wlLh Lhe aLomlc bomb. 1he
Cold War was [usL baslcally Lhe u.S. and Lhe SovleLs ghung (noL physlcally) for whaL Lhey
belleved ln and who had more power. Some ma[or reasons of why Lhe u.S and SovleLs
dlsLrusLed each oLher was because Amerlca was uemocrauc and Lhe SovleL unlon was
AuLocrauc/ulcLaLorshlp, Amerlca had free elecuons and Lhe SovleLs had no elecuons or lL was
xed, Amerlca was CaplLallsL and Lhe SovleLs were CommunlsL, ln Amerlca you had personal
freedom and ln Lhe SovleL unlon socleLy was conLrolled by Lhe nkvu (secreL pollce), and lasLly
Amerlca has freedom of Lhe press whlle Lhe SovleLs had LoLal censorshlp.
