North Yemen Civil War[edit]

North Yemen Civil War has been added to the Cold War template. I removed it because I couldn't see any connection between the two, other than the accident that they happened during the 1960s. Is there any evidence for the connection? If not, let's remove it once and for all. Thanks Chiswick Chap (talk) 15:40, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 3 January 2013[edit]

Add the link to the article Western Bloc, as well as already present Eastern Bloc 81.100.241.18 (talk) 00:15, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Bunkers in Albania[edit]

For what reason would this be part of the template? It's in the 1960's section, at which point Albania was a small country of just 2 million people, the article itself and the content has absolutely nothingto do with the Cold War or geopolitics, especially standing alongside much greater controversies and debacles.

It should be removed, really it's about as relevant to the Cold War as the Japanese United Red Army or the Weathermen's "Day of Rage". Maybe less so. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jackriter (talkcontribs) 19:59, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Source for Iraqi Ba'athist Revolution as part of the Cold War[edit]

Page 203 of Charles R. H. Tripp's A History of Iraq states that the Ba'athist coup of 1968 upset "the US-sponsored security system established as part of the Cold War in the Middle East. It appeared that any enemy of the Baghdad regime was a potential ally of the United States."TheTimesAreAChanging (talk) 01:06, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Cold War II Link[edit]

The 'see also' section is for related articles per WP:ALSO, and it seems to me that the possibility of a future Cold War is relevant to this topic. By the logic on display here, the link NATO–Russia relations should also be removed; I'd argue that Cold War II is just as relevant. My restoration was reverted on the basis of "consensus", but I can't find any discussion about this issue on the provided talk page, as such, I've once again restored the link. Regardless of whether a new Cold War has been "verified" or not, the topic of a potential future Cold War falls squarely within the common sense definition of a "related article", and shouldn't be deleted without first obtaining consensus on this specific template.

Per Talk:Cold War II/Archive 1#The current title, "Cold War II" neither is nor shall be implied as the successor to the Cold War. At the time, the article was very, very big, the title was discussed again. At that another time, the article was trimmed down somewhat, over time, the article was trimmed further down to what it is now. Also, "Cold War II" is more of a media hysteria. George Ho (talk) 10:51, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
Yes, but it's still a topic related to the Cold War even if it doesn't deal with a direct successor. Media-hyped or not, the article name was coined with regards to the Cold War, and the page's two listed conflicts deal with many of the same parties as the Cold War. If you really think the distinction needs to be highlighted in a navbox, the link could be appended as "NATO–Russia relations (Cold War II)". Personally I think the two articles are distinct enough to warrant separate links, and the discussions you linked above seem to agree with that sentiment. Legoless (talk) 11:02, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
Right now, the Cold War II is proposed to be merged to Cold war (general term). When the RfC discussion is closed, then we shall have the inclusion discussed. George Ho (talk) 11:07, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

RfC: "Cold War II" in the navigation template[edit]

The consensus is to keep the link "Cold War II" in the navigation template. There is no prejudice against revisiting this if the article's title is changed or a merger happens. Cunard (talk) 05:22, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

The link "Cold War II" was added in August 2016, the addition has been disputed. Per Talk:Cold War II/Archive 1#RfC: Accuracy of the title, "Cold War II" should not imply that this is a successor to the Cold War. Shall the link "Cold War II" be retained or omitted? --George Ho (talk) 18:44, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Poll

Retain. Cold War II is in the See also section. Yes per WP:Also, the purpose of see also is to inform readers of related articles, either directly or tangentially related.CuriousMind01 (talk) 12:01, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Discussion
  • Don't see a problem. per WP:Also: ` ... one purpose of "See also" links is to enable readers to explore tangentially related topics.` --BoogaLouie (talk) 18:06, 20 December 2016 (UTC) (editor is a volunteer of the Wikipedia:Feedback request service)
  • Remove The supposition is that the so-called "cold war" ended which is not accurate, so "cold war 2" is inaccurate and misleading. Damotclese (talk) 16:30, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Soft Include. However the close should probably note the outcome as a soft/fluid result, the article subject itself is not yet firmly established and defined. It is extremely subject to the flux of current events. There has been discussion of changing the article title, and of possible merger, it may well become appropriate to drop the link, if the current tentative RS usage of the term fizzles out. For now I think the article seems sufficiently related, and of sufficient interest, to include in the "see also" section of the template. Alsee (talk) 16:42, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Retain "Cold War II" probably needs a name change, but the article would be interesting to many readers of this template. LaTeeDa (talk) 20:36, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Remove No motive to include it here, or Syrian Civil War, or Iraq War, or anything contemporaneous. Bertdrunk (talk) 04:59, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Retain - No harm in a "see also" link. The page exists, and it is clearly related. -- Kautilya3 (talk) 20:38, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Retain: Per the above discussion and WP:ALSO. —Legoless (talk) 19:09, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Retain The inclusion of the link is supported by MOS, and I can't see one reasonable argument for removal. AlexEng(TALK) 21:52, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Retain it's a valid link. I might agree with LaTeeDa about a different title but it's hard to see a viable alternative which encompasses both the US-NATO/Russia & US/China relationships. Cabayi (talk) 12:44, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Retain per above. Valid related topic. Name of the article can be changed, but the topic itself is certainly relevant to this template. ---- Patar knight - chat/contributions 00:42, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
