8: The cold war was a time of tension between the United States and the Soviet Union. | Its called the Cold War because the United States and Soviet Union never really got into a fight. The closest the U.S. got to fighting with the Soviet Union was in the Cuban Missile Crisis. The Cold War started because the Soviet Union and the United States wanted to see who was more powerful, although there was little large-scale fighting between the two sides. The two sides disliked each other, and always though that one side was planning something against the other. Each side always wanted to be better than the other, so when one side achieved something big, the other side wanted to achieve something bigger and better. Each side also kept trying to get more weapons than the other, although this was pointless because there was little fighting in this war.
