    Time to split the Nazi scum, "Ally"
     
    USAball and USSRball in 1945

    The Cold War was a period of absolute tension between USAball and Sovietball, caused by their conflicting ideologies and territorial disputes in Europe and Asia, fought with proxy wars by countries with either Soviet or American support, but never directly because of the MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) caused by the invention of nuclear weapons. The Cold War lasted between 1945 and 1991.

    This article will contain tons of links to Wikipedia articles for convenience purposes. The Cold War also helped to cause the collapse of the USSR.

    History

    Iron Curtain rises (1945-1949)

    All started when Nazi Germanyball and Japanball were defeated and USAball and Sovietball took over its former clay. Its children West Germanyball and East Germanyball were respectively adopted by USAball and Sovietball. However, in Berlin, (part of Sovietball/ East Germanyball's clay), there were also parts of it belonging to UKball, Franceball, and USAball. West Germanyball was later given those back in 1948, and East Germanyball was given its own clay in 1949 by Sovietball, who had also taken over most of Eastern Europe's countryballs and their clay (sometimes unwillingly), and forced them into communism.

    However, in 1948, Yugoslaviaball argued with Sovietball over how communism should be like, and was then expelled from the Eastern Bloc. It was replaced by Chinaball (PRC) in 1949, after it killed its parent Nationalist Chinaball and exiled its sibling Taiwanball, before taking over Tibetball the following year.

    Sovietball also developed nuclear weapons of its own in 1949, after USAball had tested them in 1945, and dropped two on Japanball in the same year, making it surrender. As a result, USAball formed NATO in 1948/9, to ally the capitalist countryballs against Sovietball and its friends. In 1948 however, Sovietball tried to take over West Germanyball's sector of Berlin, and in response, USAball airlifted supplies in, and Sovietball ended the blockade a few months later. This was the beginning of the fall of an Iron Curtain across Europe, which would last four decades.

    Meanwhile, USAball was trying to convince European countryballs not to join Sovietball, by giving them aid, and (for Japanball) therapy, via its Marshall Plan, and helping them rebuild their war-devastated clay. In 1945, it had agreed to split Japanball's dying former slave Koreaball's clay between itself and Sovietball, and adopted its child South Koreaball, while Sovietball adopted its child North Koreaball. Koreaball than later died.

    On an unrelated sidenote, the Jewcubes not killed by Nazi Germanyball in the Second World War were placed in British Palestine territory, displacing it and forming Israelcube by the UN.

    Korean War (1950-1953)

    In 1950, under Sovietball's encouragement, North Koreaball invaded its capitalist sister's clay, and almost succeeded in taking it all, but USAball and the NATO members intervened, and took back all of South Koreaball's clay, as well as most of North Koreaball's. However, Chinaball joined the war, and pushed the NATO members and the war's front-line back to the 38th parallel, where they started peace talks at Panmunjom in June 1951. In 1953, they finally agreed to an armistice, but as of today, North Koreaball and South Koreaball still really hate each other to bits.

    In the meantime, USAball developed a cure for polio, while going through some anxiety and developing some sort of a communist-phobia known as McCarthyism. UKball fought a war with its adoptive child Malayaball who wanted its independence, and had also been forced to grant independence to Indiaball in 1947. Independent countries soon began to spring up all over the place, as USAball and Sovietball scrambled to claim them and convert them to either capitalism or communism.

    Nuclear Arms Race (1953-1963)

    In 1953, East Germanyball tried to rebel against its adoptive parent, so Sovietball formed the Warsaw pact, in 1955 as a reaction to NATO. In 1956, while USAball was going through its Civil Rights Movement phase, Sovietball's kidnapped liberated Hungaryball tried to rebel against Warsaw Pact. As a result, Sovietball raped Hungaryball, right in its Budapest, with tanks. But in 1957, it sent a satellite into space, Sputnik I, the first artificial satellite to ever be in space, beginning the Space Race between itself and USAball.

    At the same time, they were also building lots of nuclear weapons, and in response to USAball installing the Jupiter missiles in its ally and fellow NATO member Turkeyball's clay. In 1959, a revolution occurs in Cubaball which makes it a communist country, Sovietball took advantage of Cubaball's new communism fad in 1959 to install some of its own missiles there in 1961, within striking distance of most of USAball's clay. In response, USAball blockaded Cubaball's territorial waters, and demanded Sovietball remove its missiles from Cubaball's clay. Cubaball claimed they were to protect its clay after USAball's failed attempt to invade it in 1961, at the Bay of Pigs. UKball and several other countries built nuclear shelters and panicked. Tensions grew between USAball and Sovietball, until peace conditions were reached in October 1962, with both the Jupiter missiles and the Cuban missiles being removed, and the world narrowly avoided a global thermonuclear war. A line was set up between USAball and Sovietball, to ensure clear communications between the two superpowers.

    Meanwhile, Lebanonball became violent, causing USAball to intervene on its clay, and Franceball lost control of its adoptive child Indochinaball, after Dien Bien Phu was lost, and its children North Vietnamball and South Vietnamball became enemies. Their siblings Laosball and Cambodiaball could into dictatorships, as were many of the anti-communist dictatorship countryballs that USAball supported, such as Nicaraguaball, while Colombiaball developed split personality syndrome in the early 1960s. Algeriaball also gained its independence from its parent Franceball, in 1962, and Sovietball built a wall around East Germanyball's Berlin clay in 1961, to stop West Germanyball's capitalist influence from slipping through. Also, Belgiumball's forcibly adopted child Congoball became independent in 1960, Franceball and West Germanyball had a son, EUball in 1957, and USAball protected Taiwanball from its communist big sibling.

    Vietnam War (1955-1975)

    In 1964, USAball became wary of North Vietnamball's successes against its non-communist sibling, so it fabricated an incident in the Gulf of Tonkin, as an excuse to intervene in the Vietnamball's clay. In 1965-67, USAball destroyed hundreds of acres of rain-forests that were in its way, in an effort to stop North Vietnamball's evil communist influence, but the 1968 Tet offensive saw North Vietnamball gain the upper hand in the war, and its usage of guerrilla warfare against USAball was taking its toll. After USAball's intervention became unpopular, it eventually gave up and pulled out of Vietnamese clay in 1973, allowing for the eventual victory by North Vietnamball over South Vietnamball when Saigon fell in 1975.

    In 1967, elsewhere in the world, Israelcube defeated the five combined forces of Egyptball, Syriaball, Lebanonball, Jordanball, and Iraqball in just six days, which was even more impressive than in 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Meanwhile, North Koreaball caught USAball spying on it in its territorial waters in 1968, and Portugalball fought a series of wars with its adoptive sons Angolaball, Mozambiqueball, and Guinea-Bissauball in the mid 1970s, culminating in their eventual independence in 1974/5. In 1968, Czechoslovakiaball rebelled against its master, resulting in another Sovietball rape, its time however, in its Prague. Also, in 1971, Pakistanball was in a war with East Pakistanball because East Pakistanball wanted independence. This resulted in a war and a genocide against Bengali civilians. Eventually, East Pakistan won independence and became Bangladeshball.

    As for the Space Race, in 1961, Sovietball had gone up into space itself, a feat which USAball matched the following year, and USAball finally won the Space Race in 1969 by landing on the Moon itself.

    Detente (1973-1979)

    In the mid 1970s, USAball and Sovietball entered a period of relative peace called detente, after the end of the Vietnam conflict (1954-1975), and the Space race (1957-1969). In 1970, Chileball transformed to socialism, but after a certain traumatic event it became capitalist. In 1974, Turkeyball invaded Cyprusball's clay, and raped it, creating Northern Cyprusball. In 1977, USAball returned the Panama Canal's clay to Panamaball, and celebrated its 200th anniversary of independence in 1976. Guyanaball became suicidal in 1978 as well, and Tanzaniaball liberated Ugandaball. Chinaball opened up after the Sino-Soviet split in the 1960s to USAball's trading policies in 1978.

    However, in 1979, Iranball experienced a personality change, and held USAball's embassy in its clay hostage for 444 days, while it could into kebab. Meanwhile, Sovietball invaded Afghanistanball's clay, to help a local communist government. As a result, USAball gave weapons and ammo to some of Afghanistanball's rebellious children, who would later become the Talibanball and Al-Qaedaball in 1988. This effectively ended the period of peace in the 1970s.

    The Second Time of the Cold War (1979-1985)

    In 1979, Grenadaball became a communist with the support of Cubaball, which caused the USAball in 1983 to give it a little ¨Freedom¨ and ¨Democracy¨. In the 1980s, Nicaraguaball has a revolution which makes it an ally of the Sovietball, Peruball experienced a series of bloody terrorist attacks, while Surinameball plunged into a dictatorship and subsequent civil war, and USAball and UKball both had personality changes, and became incredibly anti-communist. UKball and USAball could also into Reaganite and Thatcherism, and when Argentinaball invaded its child Falkland Islandsball's clay in 1982, UKball and USAball set out to teach Argentinaball a lesson. The same year, NATO members protested against Sovietball's rape and curfew of PR Polandball. Then in 1983, when Sovietball accidentally hurt South Koreaball over its airspace, this raised tensions between USAball and Sovietball. Tensions were raised even further later in the year when Sovietball mistook NATO members simulating a DEFCON 1 for a war games drill for a real invasion, and almost resulted in global thermonuclear war (again).

    In 1972, A Palestinian nationalist group had caused an incident at West Germanyball's Olympic games, so Sovietball thought it would be a good idea to repay the USAball-led blockade of its 1980 Olympic Games, by boycotting the 1984 Games in Los Angeles. North Koreaball also boycotted its capitalist sibling South Koreaball's Games in 1988.

    Fall of the Iron Curtain and End of the Cold War (1985-1991)

    In 1985, Sovietball underwent a personality change, and used its new policies of glasnost and perestroika to help its economy, which had been failing throughout the 1970s and 1980s, to recover, by encouraging foreign investors to invest in its things. However, this backfired when its children Ukrainian SSRball accidentally caused a nuclear meltdown on their clay in 1986 at Chernobyl. Sovietball tried to keep it a secret, but when Swedenball detected it, its new policies required it to admit the truth, which unleashed decades of pent-up criticism from its occupied countryballs in Eastern Europe and also from its children, the SSRballs. Sovietball's only comfort was USAball's Challenger exploding the same year, and its capitalist economy experiencing a severe dip in 1987.

    However, by 1989, there was lots of unrest in the Warsaw Pact nations. Romaniaball could into democracy in 1989, and Bulgariaball left the Pact the same year. By August, Hungaryball had torn down the border fence between its clay and Austriaball's, and Czechoslovakiaball and Polandball held their first free elections that year. Later In November 1989, East Germanyball and West Germanyball tore down the Berlin Wall, and they were reunified in spring 1990, forming a united Germanyball. Sovietball was forced to withdraw from Afghanistanball's clay after that.

    By 1990, all the Eastern Bloc countries had left, and Sovietball's children started to hate communism and than began to rebel against it, taking advantage of its ailing health. In 1990, Estonian SSRball, Latvian SSRball, Lithuanian SSRball, Moldavian SSRball, and Ukrainian SSRball left Sovietball, and by summer 1991, only 3 were left. Sovietball died when its child Russian SFSRball took power in a coup in August 1991, and was dead by 25th December, 1991. In 1992, Russian SFSRball renamed itself Russiaball, and the Cold War had ended.

    America was trying to stop the spread of communism, making the Soviet Union mad, so they both built nukes but were too scared to use them because they feared of nuclear war (who didn’t?). This continued until the fall of the Soviet Union.
