The Cold War was a secret conspiracy between the presidents of the USA and USSR, whereby both countries would spend billions of dollars on military and defense and make it look like they considered each other a threat, when their true worry was that Earth would be invaded by aliens, after occurrences such as the Roswell incident.
Some people would say that dead spies and starving USSR citizens were a small price to pay for the amazing technological advances made during the Cold War.

Basically, the Cold War was a race on ALL scales, between the two rivals : America and the Soviet Union. Both of these nations were the strongest in the nation. The Cold War essentially began after WWII. As mentioned before, the Cold War (which received its name because it was a war with negotiations and words, not actual combat) was a race on all scales, but one particular scale was on nuclear weapons. Other races included to become the strongest military, and even to be able to travel the stars (the Soviets put Sputnik in orbit of Earth, but the Americans were the first ones to land on the moon).
The Cold War was thee war that truly determined the fate of the free world. Perhaps the world was created to be what it is now because of the Cold War. But America won the Cold War, and the flags of freedom, and capitalism, would fly all over the world. Mother Russia is now in shambles because of not only our involvements, but also the courses they ran until they realized they were wrong.
"....nowadays I use this term to refer to an argument I have with someone online. If I met that person in real-life, I'd probably wail on him, or her. My last cold war was on February 6th, two days before my birthday; it was hellish because some bitch said lies to my sister. I won....but I was only lucky."
