The Cold War was never a war in the fighting on a battlefield sense. It refers to a time period. Behind the scenes political tension primary between us and Russia. Lots of illegal spying and we tried to prevent the Soviet Union from growing technologically an informationally.
It was during World War II and the United States and the Soviet Union fought together at allies. But they did not trust each other so glad to millions of deaths with the Russians and after the war the mistrust became worse which led to the Cold War .
During the cold war all we (israel) care about was survival. They didn't care about anything like being a strong powerful country.
After the Cold War ended Unfortunately for us the Soviet Jews became possible slaves.
The Americans used Israel to safely secure their win over the middle east.
