Cleanup[edit]

I reverted a vandal and instituted a cleanup. I cannot believe the article was allowed to persist in such a vegetative state for so long. Blatant PoV, beginning with the initial editor and continuing for three years. I have nixed the blatant anti-Americanism which seemed to insinuate that the Soviet Union were completely innocent. —Joseph/N328KF (Talk) 17:10, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

I am going to make this the main article link under the intelligence section of the article Cold War. Obviously this article needs heavy work and expansion, so hopefully the link will give it greater exposure than it has now. Joshdboz 02:02, 14 April 2006 (UTC)


"Never quite trustful of each other, this resulted in espionage of tactics and technology between the Western bloc and Soviet bloc."

Espionage is a result of lack of trust? Really? I thought most powerful nations did this all the time, even with their allies. --70.142.51.194 (talk) 22:05, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Article research[edit]

Hello editors! I will be working on this article as a part of an assignment for a Cold War Science class at my University. More details can be found in the banner up top. As I start to expand this article I will be researching the following sources. This will provide much needed references in an article that lacks citations. The following is an APA formatted bibliography.
