Why was the United States unable to avoid entering a Cold War with the Soviet Union?
The Cold War was mainly a conflict for world supremacy. After World War II, only two
world superpowers stood up, each with its own political and economic ideology, and strategic
interest and a conflict between them was unavoidable. This competition was the fuel of the
Cold War, and since none of the parts was willing to give up and take defeat, the conflict
lasted as long as the two superpowers existed.
