The Cold Warriors
Task: Create a 5-7 minute skit or movie of an interview with “Cold Warriors” that asks whether or not they think this strategy is working based off the way they think and experiences they had during the Cold War.
Whether fighting for capitalism or communism these men dedicated their lives to uphold their beliefs as to how the world should function. The most influential Cold Warriors were men of power—commanders of great armies, of the masses, of economic might, of words and ideas. Each of these men oversaw the policies of the Cold War that eventually brought the end of the Soviet Union in 1990. Today the term "Cold Warrior" is used as an attack against a politician that uses outdated strategies. However are these strategies as outdated as some people imply?
Research each of the men detailed on the Cold Warriors chart to learn about their personalities. Later you will use this chart to construct a skit. This skit will pit these men against contemporary War on Terror policies.
