  1. FIRST COMMENT OHH!!!
    I think the Cold War could have been called the "Non-War". The War was called the Cold War in the first place because they never really got into a real war. They only tried to compete with each other in militarism, to get better things than each other. So it could have been called the "Non-War" because there really wasn't any war in it.

    One of the impacts the cold war had on the U.S was the threat of being bombed. People would stack up on supplies because of the tension. The cold war was called the non-war because no physical fighting was actually going on, just many races. -Sophia S.

  6. The cold war made the US build up their military. There really was no war it was just a race to see who could build up more military faster. That is why it could be called the Non-War.

  7. The Cold War could have been called non-war. They didn't actually fight face to face, but both sides tried to make their weapons better than the opposite sides. The effect it had on the U.S. was that when Stalin cut off the West's supplies, the U.S. had to give their supplies to the west just so they could survive, and that made them lose some very nessesary supplies

  8. The impact the cold war left on the US was that it improved the US's technology and helped them get to space. It could have been called the Non-War because they didn't even fight in the Cold War.

  9. It made the US spend lots of money because Russia were seeing who could have better weapons and who could get to the moon first there was no actual fight but they say that this war was fought with "words weapons and money ".

  10. The Cold War affected the US by frightening the people that there would be an all-out nuclear war. This was very scary. This could have been called the non-war because no fighting was actually involved. It was, in my opinion, kind of like fighting for bragging rights. The US and the USSR were trying to build bigger and better weapons so they could threaten the other and be able to say, "I have the upper hand" because they would have a more technolgically advanced weapon.

  11. The cold war was big for the U.S because we got to make more arms and we were the first to land on the moon. It also helped communism not spreading because we are an anti communism country.

  13. The cold war had an effect on the US because this cost a lot of money. This cost a lot of money for things like space ships. I think they called this war the the non war because non of the countries we fighting and killing each other. This war was more like a contest.

  14. Although it was not technically a war some still did die with affected the U.S.The word "war" shouldn't be in cold war. There was no war though. It was just to see who had better weapons and such.

  15. The impact the cold war had on the U.S. was pretty big, because the U.S. spent tons of money to make huge new weapons. The cold war was called a "non-war" because there was actually no fighting the two superpowers U.S. and The Soviet Union just tried to see who could make the biggest and the best weapons.

  16. This war could have been called the Non-War because it was not really a war. The Cold War was a competion between the U.S.A and the soviet union. they competed to see who had the best military army weapons. Also, they competed to see who could get to the moon first. This was called the Space Race. therefore it was not really a war. The cold war had many impacts on the USA. Firstly, Cold War instigated strong anti-communism within the USA. Secondly, Cold War made many Americans to live in fear of danger of war.Thirdly, Cold War had an impact on American people economically. In conclusion, the cold war was never really a war.

  17. The cold war had both a good and bad impact on the US. the cold war made us spend a lot of money trying to compete with the Soviet Union for better weapons and the space race but it also made the US have better weapons if there was ever another war. I think the "non-war" would have been a good name for the cold war simply because there was no actual fighting involved.

  18. The Cold War had a positive impact on the U.S because winning the war showed other countries hows strong the U.S was, protecting them from further attacks. The Cold War also made a big impact on communism. This war could be called the "Non-War", because no real battles/fighting ever occurred.

  19. The Cold war impacted the U.S. because it motivated us to send the first man to the moon, and it also costed a lot of money. This could be called the non-war because it was more of a contest than a war.

  20. The Cold War had a big effect on the U.S because it cost us a lot of money to build space shuttles for the Space Race. The the Cold War could have been called the non war because it was more like a contest instead of a war. No one was fight for something the believed in.

    This could be considered a "non-war" because there were no real battles but every now and then there would be some skirmishes. It affected the U.S. because it was a race for arms and a race to the moon so because of the cold war we landed a man on the moon and we developed many more nuclear weapons.

  22. The Cold War could be considered the "non-war" because no actual battles happened, all they did was show of things that made one another better than the other. The US was affected by many reasons, an example was when they landed Neil Armstrong on the moon.

  23. The war could be thought as the Non war because there was no physical battles and it was mainly a Competition. It affected us by having the Space Race and having the first satellite in space.

  24. The Cold War should've been called the "Non-War" because things never got too heated up to become a real war between the Soviet Union and the U.S. The Cold War's impact on the U.S was that it caused us to start developing more nuclear weapons in case the Soviet Union tried to attack. The U.S paid money to help Greece and Turkey fight communists spreading from Eastern Europe.

  25. The cold war made people think bad things were going to happen because of all the new weapons we were making. I also think it helped us by giving us inspiration to make all of this new technology. I think it could have been called the non-war because we never really attacked on each other because we knew that would end up causing total destruction of both of our countries.

  26. The cold war was more of a compitition between countrys. This is why I belive that it could have been called the Non-War. Also it effected the U.S of A because it brought a lot of fear, people thought a nuclear war was going to start!

  27. It effected the US because we were apart of competing with the Soviate Union. We reached to see who could get a person in space first, who had the best military, and who had the best weapons. This costed a lot of money for the US. I think it could have been called the "Non-War" because no fighting was happening. It was jest a big competition.

  28. I think the cold war impacted the U.S. because we could prove that we have more weapons and power than the soviet union. I think that it should be called the Non- war because their was really no fighting involved.

  31. It could have been called the Non-War because they did not really fight if they had fought it could have been called the cold war but they did not fight. So, United states and soviet Union should not even have done this Non- War.

  34. The Cold War impacted the U.S. by proving they have better technologies and weapons than the Soviet Union. This war could have been called the non-war because it was not necessarily a war, as there was no fighting. I believe it was called the Cold War because nothing ever heated up.

  39. I think the cold effected america in a good way. With out in it we may never have thought of the idea for space travel. Another reason I think it helped america was without it we never would have all these formulas for different types of nuclear weapons.And to answer the last question yes i think it should have been called the non-war because there was no actual fighting.

  40. The Cold war had an impact on the U.S. because the U.S was one of the “Super Powers,” along with the Soviet Union. This would mean that we would be involved in the arms race(building up our weaponry) and the space race(sending someone to space!).The war could be called a “non-war” because there was no actual fighting going on. It could also be called a “non-war because the war part was just building up weapons, not fighting, like I just mentioned. As a result of all of this “non-war” though the two Super Powers had basically turned into one; the U.S.

  41. The Cold war had an impact on the U.S. by proving they had better weapons and bombs. They had a arm race which is a race to see who has the most nuclear bombs and better ones. Then they had a space race. The US settled a man on the moon. There was no war in the Cold War. That is why it should be called the non-war.

  42. The Cold War had an effect on the U.S. because they found new technology like better weapons. There was also a part of the war called arms race. This motivated the U.s. to make new technology that was never thought possible back then. There was also a space race which got the U.S. their man on the moon. The Cold War should be called the non-war because there was no actual fighting and there was no actual war.

  43. This so called "War" was very good for both sides. The super powers became extremely more advanced in space and weapons because they were very motivated and trying to get these thing done as fast as they could.

  44. The war or not really a war was violent but not the worlds most violent war as in WW11. This did make a change to america but a very little one at that. We may not be the bestest of friends with other places around the world but we did not have to be good friends with them. They needed us to buy there stuff and without us americans they were nothing. So really this war did not really change us that much

  45. Basicly the "war" was a lot of nationalism and militarism because the 2 sides believed they were right and the other side was wrong so therefor the 2 sides just kept building up their weapons until the other gave up but none of them did so the end of the "war" was when the Berlin wall was distracted by the people of Germany.

  46. The cold war was very good for the Americans. First off, we got a man to the moon. Second, we built up our army and many new weapons. Third, we stopped the spread of communism. Some people may not call this war a war though. This is because there was no real fighting just "who's better".

  51. The Cold War had a great impact on the US. Many new things happened during the Cold War, like sending a man to the moon and new technology. The Arms Race pushed us to invent many new types of weapons.
    The Cold War could have been called Non-War because it wasn't actually a war. The US and Soviet Union never declared war on each other.

  55. An impact the Cold War had on the US was that people were scared that this would turn into a big war and that the soviet union was going to win because of all of their amazing weapons and that they would spread communism. It was a non-war because no fighting actually took place only better innovations.

  59. The Cold War was a 43 year stand-off between the US and the Soviet Union. The war impacted the US in a couple of ways, in which none were US casualties. Many new weapons were created, people landed on the moon, and many other things happened. This war could be called the/a "Non-War"(both words work)because they fought indirectly meaning that they fought but not killing,but trying to best each other. They fought in the Arms and the Space Race. The Berlin Wall was built, separated East from West Berlin, and then got taken down. The Soviet Union eventually collapsed(fell)and this was when the US won. These 2 superpowers fought, and US rose to #1. Good job, America. Keep it on. #JustDoIt

  65. The Cold War impacted the US in ways such as us having better technology. The space race provided us with that. We also used billions of dollars to create weapons. So, we were stuck with piles of weapons and a bit of a hole I our pocket. But, we had triumphed over the other super power ( the USSR), so we were then the best. It could have been called the "Non-War" because there was no fighting, just a standoff between countries.

  66. The cold war impacted the US because now we knew how to get into space, had more nuclear weapons that we knew to do with, and had new political leaders rising to power because of communism. The Cold war could have been called the non-war because no physical fighting ever occured.
