The Second Cold War, sometimes called the Little Cold War or 2CW, was a period of geopolitical and ideological tension between the United States of America and the Union of Eurasian Republics along with their respective allies and blocs, in the early and mid 21st century. The widely-accepted timeframe of the conflict is between the 2022 State of the Union address in the United States and 2048 with the Eurasian Revolution and Algiers Summit. Much like the First Cold War, between 1947 and 1991, the Second Cold War did not have large-scale fighting between the two superpowers, but numerous proxy-wars were seen, particularly in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. The Second Cold War also saw the Second Space Age, with both sides vying for dominance in the colonization of Luna and in Earth orbit & cislunar space.
