The Cold War wasn't even a war, it was a "police action".

Most technological advances made recently come from the cold war. The whole moon thing? Cold war. Internet? Arguably coming from the cold war.

Agreed. After WWII and WWI definitely the most significant. Also basically saw the rise and fall of mass ideology driven politics.

I know. But what I'm saying is that it wasnt a war persay. It was a police action witch is the closest thing to a war you can get, I guess.

I'd call it a war, but think whatever it is you want. If the word 'war' is in it then it is a war. Iraq war is a war in the same way. Vietnam? Also a war.

The Cold War was more like psychological warfare actually with each super power constantly trying to edge in front of the other and boasting that it was the best. If the Cold War had been fought the world would have come to an end and we would not be having this conversation. :)

Forgot that the cold war had an effect on 9-11 and so pretty much all our actions since.
