CONTAINMENT IN SOUTHEAST ASIA The United States wanted to contain the spread of communism in Southeast Asia. The United States suffered a huge loss of life. In addition, the war resulted in a loss of faith in the nations leaders. THE END OF THE COLD WAR The Soviet Union collapsed because the economy could not work well and was not meeting the needs of the people.

The Free World won the Cold War for several reasons. The economy of the Soviet Union was weak, and Soviet leaders realized they needed to reduce their military expenditures. Nations in alliances with the Soviet Union overthrew their communist governments, and the Soviet Union did not interfere. At the end of the game, players from the losing team had a chance to join the winning team.
