I have never thought about it much other than it being a proxy between America and Russia. But the whole 'cold war' thing seems alot like how Spain and Portugal divided the globe at one time and took half each. Only when America and Russia did it after WW2 they divided certain coutries. Its like the Portugal/Spain thing in stealth. The proxy wars just an excuse to play with toys distract citizens.
