Pope John Paul II[edit]

According to the Pope John Paul II article, this pope had a big hand in ending the Cold War. Where exactly should he be listed in this template? Hires an editor (talk) 18:11, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Since added to the Poland section, as is appropriate.12.125.80.214 (talk) 20:10, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

South Africa?[edit]

Why are there are no South African leaders here? Surely people like Vorster and Botha were notable cold war figures. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.104.211.73 (talk) 12:49, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

I agree - they were quite notable. South Africa was the West's staunchest ally in the Cold War and even sent its troops to fight in Angola and Namibia. The Apartheid policy of the regime only created significant problems for public relations in the Reagan era, when the Eastern Bloc was near its last gasps.
