Best regards, Mandy RE: Causes of the Cold War Professor Jones 5/29/2016 6:27:27 AM Cold War propaganda tended to dehumanize both sides to the other. Once people from both countries were able to see each other as people...Cold War no more. RE: Causes of the Cold War Brittney Yontz 5/28/2016 3:27:57 PM The cold war was political and military tension that began after WW II that involved the Western bloc that was the united stated and the Eastern bloc that was the soviet union. The two blocs had very different economic and political differences and the both wanted their beliefs to dominate and this is why the world fell into conflict once again after WWII. RE: Causes of the Cold War Professor Jones 5/29/2016 6:28:15 AM Both were certainly different in many ways but as Amanda's post demonstrates the people of both countries had a lot more in common. Hmmm... The Domestic Impact of the Cold War Professor Jones 5/20/2016 12:38:17 PM While the Cold War was a foreign policy issue, it had significant impacts on the domestic situation in the US. In what ways did the Cold War shape politics in the US?

What are your thoughts about this case? Could the two have gotten a fair trial in in the climate of the Cold War and especially the Red Scare? The Rosenberg Trial RE: The Domestic Impact of the Cold War Emily Mahoney 5/25/2016 10:48:41 AM I do not feel that The Rosenberg's could have received a fair trial at this time in the United States. The FBI produced several witnesses for the prosecution claiming the Julius Rosenberg had been involved in espionage, most of which were hearsay accounts and interactions. The defense only had two witnesses, being the Rosenbergs themselves, whom pleaded the Fifth Amendment right to not respond to questions about belonging to the Communist party. This alone would have been considered damning evidence and being that it was a crucially poor time to be a member of the Communist party, or even considered one, pleading the Fifth Amendment instead of out right denying membership was perhaps a poor decision on the Rosenbergs part, or that of their defense attorney. Julius Rosenberg's apathetic position during trial also did not when him any supporters. For Ethel Rosenberg, there was no solid evidence that she was involved other than the fact that she was married to the man accused and also have invoked the Fifth Amendment right to deny membership of the communist party. Her brother's testimony indicating that she had "typed notes from Los Alamos"(Linder, 1951) was the only 'evidence' against her in the case to find her a guilty party. Other than that, she denied any wrong doing. Both being found guilty and sentenced to death, it certainly didn't help their image when President Eisenhower did not grant their request for clemency.
