    Nice one Ms 379!

    For X I'd suggest the X-planes, these were US experimental aircraft. The Bell X1 was the first plane to exceed the speed of sound in level flight and led to the design of supersonic jet fighters that were the mainstay of Warsaw Pact and NATO airforces in the Cold War.

    well the cold war wasn't really a war. It was many hot and cold tensions between the united states and the soviet union. causes of cold war include - US and Soviet clashed over the postwar administration of Poland, Stailin pledges to ensure the survival of the Soviet system while Churchill urges the West to oppose it ... the effects of the cold war - US adopts a policy to "contain" communism, Truman Doctrine offers US aid to countries opposing communism, NATO and Warsaw Pact are formed, Fear of communism at home leads to a climate of suspicion in American culture... haha it's funny ur in high school and i'm in 8th grade... don't u feel kind of stupid??
