After World War II, the United States and the Soviet Union were the world's strongest nations. During the Cold War, the USSR was able to tell a Soviet passport was a forged and fake. the staples in real passports would corrode due to the poor quality of metal.
They were called superpowers. They had different ideas about economics and government. The CIA secretly spiked the bread from a bakery in the French village of Pont-Saint-Esprit with enormous quantities of LSD as part of its cold war mind-control experiments.
They fought a war of ideas called the Cold War. The term “Cold War” was first invented by George Orwell, author of the book satirizing Stalinism, “Animal Farm”. The term “Third World Country” does not mean poor, it refers to a country which was not aligned with either America/First World or Soviet/Second World during the Cold War.
During the Cold War, the CIA launched Operation Kitty. in which cats were surgically implanted with bugging devices to eavesdrop on Soviet conversations. who would suspect a cat of wearing a wire. The 1st mission failed after the cat was run over and the $15million operation was dropped.
it was a war that matter at the time but it was a war that wasn't effected.
