I'll take our weapons out of Turkey is you take yours out of Cuba
Before the War Korea was already divided by the 38th Parallel. In the Korean War the North invaded the South.During the war the North was supported by the USSR and the South was supported by the US. The result of the war is there is a ceasefire signed and Korea is split into North and South Korea almost at the same spot as before the war.
Space and Arms race
Vietnam divides into two sides, North which is communist and South which is democratic.The leader of the North side, which is Ho Chi Minh invades the other side of Vietnam. He did this to try and unite the country and he also wanted to spread communism. The United States sends supplies to try and help out the south. In the end Vietnam becomes a communist nation.
The Cuban Missile Crisis started when Kennedy found out that the Soviet Union had weapons stations in Cuba. Kennedy stepped into action to try to stop a nuclear war from breaking out. The only catch is that we have we weapons in Turkey which is not too far away from the Soviet Union. President Kennedy and the leader of the Soviet Union, Khrushchev met up and decided they would both move their weapons, therefore the issue was resolved.
Fall of the Wall

The space and arms race is when superpowers competed against each other to try and have a better military and space program. This race was mostly between the Soviet Union and the US. The soviet Union sends a satellite to space. After this happened the US gets the first man to the moon. In the end the Us ended up winning this race.
Berlin splits into to parts, East and West. Berlin being divided is exactly like what happened to Germany. The west side of Berlin is the democratic side and this is a little weird because the East side of Berlin is the side that is in the city. Berlin splitting up is one of the major causes for the start of the cold war.
For so long people have been protesting to get the wall taken down. In November 1989 they finally begin to start taking the wall down. When the wal is all of the way taken down both sides of the wall Germany reunited again. They call East and West Germany West Germany now.
