But there won't be combat, right? If there were, it would not be a Cold War.

"Truth" is the opinion of the majority which it can enforce on the minority. Members of the minority have two choices: join the bandwagon or think. Those who do not fall into line will be brutally crushed.
The tools to maintain order are: lies, double standards, and hypocrisy. The most powerful and the most insidious of them is hypocrisy

The Korean War and the Vietnam War both took place during the Cold War... ;)

A Cold War just means there isn't open hostilities.  Doesn't mean there aren't battles that no one hears about.

Not to hijack the thread, but the Cold War was fought between the USA and the Soviet Union. There was no armed conflict between these two nations.

Oh, I think I will open up the Wikipedia to confirm myself.

There was conflict by proxy.  Examine the Korean War closely.

I believe the Vietnam "police action" also fits into that category as well.

That's the one, and it's appaling Sequel 'FireFox Down', which in essence removed the most interesting feature from the film within the first 20 minutes ;)
