Its been ten years since I last wrote about the Cold War. In doing research recently for our upcoming class on that topic as a part of our six-part LCC series, I was reminded of two things:
First, it is such a broad topic and covers so much fabric of our society, it is certainly impossible to do the topic justice in a short article or even a two-hour class. Secondly, with recent events concerning North Korea and Russia over the past couple years, it is also certainly no longer ‘cold’.
Of course, our Cold War battle goes back decades to the end of WWII when relations with communist Soviet Union continued to decline in the post-war years, followed then shortly with the Korean War just a few years later, and the far-reaching control of the Kim family in North Korea, also dating back to WWII.
