Cold war was a restricted but open ideological warfare and a struggle for global supremacy that emerged in 1947(after world war two) between capitalist USA and communist Soviet Union (currently Russia) and their respective allies (Walter,1972). The war did not involve the active deployment of soldiers and weapons of mass destruction, but rather a war of ideas. It was fought on three major fronts: political, the use of propaganda and economic fronts. The term was coined by George Orwell while predicting a nuclear stalemate between two or three countries that he termed as monstrous super states .Cold war was triggered by America`s fear of communist invasion, Truman`s dislike of Stalin, America`s denial to share nuclear secrets among other causes.
