  • What did the pact/alliance do? The pacts and alliances formed tension and sides for the military standoff during the Cold War.

  • Our Opinions We think that the right decisions were made because, even though NATO pressured the Soviet Union to create the Warsaw Pact, America, as a whole, was exhausted; if we were going to go another round, we needed more friends in our corner. We believe that racism, sexism, classism, or misunderstanding of culture did not affect this event.

  • Benefits ● NATO gave us a strong alliance with other countries that is still present

    today. ● If any countries in the alliance are attacked, then all other members would

    attack the enemy. This is a principle of collective defense. ● The Warsaw Pact benefitted the Soviets with many third world allies.

  • International /Domestic Events These alliances created national turmoil because neighboring countries where choosing sides.

    NATO really benefited America because we knew that, if we got involved with the Soviets, we have backup.
