Gorbachev reform movement of openness and reform, glasnost/ perestroika 1985-89 left the Soviet Union unable to respond to dissent and rebellion as it had in the past (that is, by invading, crushing, and murdering everyone).

You guys should totally help me with this World History.?
Its about the Cold War. VVV How did Allied plans for Eastern Europe differ? Was the U.S. policy of containment effective at preventing the spread of communism? Why or why not? How did the United States and Soviet Union compete during the Cold War? What were the causes and effects of the Cuban missile crisis? Why do you think the United States and the Soviet Union cared about having influence in countries around the world? How did cultural changes affect the United States in the years after World War II? Why did Mikhail Gorbachev propose glasnost and perestroikia? How effective do you think the Soviet system was at controlling public dissent? Explain your answer. What events brought about the breakup of the Soviet Union? What threats has the United States faced since the end of the Cold War? Was the end of communism in Eastern Europe completely positive for those nations? Why or why not?

Why were NATO and the Warsaw pact formed?
NATO was formed by Western European countries and the US as a military protective pact against the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc countries of Europe. These NATO countries (NATO is headquartered in Brussels)formed this alliance so that if they were invaded or otherwise engaged by the Soviets, all in the alliance would come to their defense. It was also a way for Western Europe to say to the USSR, keep out, we are strong. After 9-11, it should be noted that NATO planes patrolled off our Eastern Coast.
The Warsaw Pact was an alliance between the Soviet Union and its eastern satellite countries such as Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia(sp), etc. It was in response to NATO and had the same theories as NATO, that if one country was threatened or harmed by a Western country then all countries of the Warsaw Pact would come to its defense. It was also a way for Eastern Europe to say to the West-keep out.
how does topography affect Europe's climate?
I'm no expert but a huge portion of europe has many mountains and since topography is the study of the shape and terrain of the earth 1 would think that europe is very cold especially northern europe due to the elevated terrain.
why is Europe a continent?
Europe is ...... not a continent.
Yes it is.
Historically, Europe was the civilized world.
Italy, France, England, Germany were the font of learning from about 1500 onwards.
It was not even realized that there were other continents.
Of course Africa was known, and India. But the extent of these only become known afterwards.
And of course the Americas and Antarctica were found.
Essentially, I believe, Europe was so "impressed" with its achievements that it was given (gave itself) continent status, even though it is merely a peninsular of Asia.
This actually seems reasonable for two reasons
1) The historical significance on earth's affairs that was wielded by Europe
2) At least in the south there is a continental plate boundary (the one that divides eastern and western Turkey)
