    In this photo made Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013, Brian Preece and his wife Rebecca, of Nampa, Idaho, who want to adopt a Russian boy with Down's syndrome, speak in Moscow, Russia. From their faraway homes in the American West, two couples made repeated missions of love to Moscow, each seeking to adopt children with Down syndrome. Now, with court approval at last in hand, a political squabble with a trace of Cold War friction has derailed those plans, leaving them in anxious limbo. (AP Photo/Misha Japaridze)

    This undated photo provided by the subject shows St. Louis sociology professor Lisa Martino-Taylor. Martino-Taylor performed a study raising new concerns about secret Army testing during the Cold War that sprayed a potentially hazardous chemical into the air in St. Louis. The tests targeted predominantly black areas of the city. Now, some residents are left to wonder if those tests led to health problems for them and for relatives.

    In this Aug. 20, 2012 photo, tourists take photos in front of old cold war signs that read left to right, "Recover the mainland" and "Military-civilian cooperation" at the picturesque village of Chin Be on Beigan in the Matsu island group, off northern Taiwan. In early July some 3,000 Matsu residents voted 57 to 43 to permit casino gambling. Their votes were clearly influenced by the promises of not only a casino, but also a tourist resort, expanded airport, roadway infrastructure, a university, and perhaps most alluring of all, a monthly payment of 80,000 New Taiwan dollars ($2,666) for every resident.

    FILE - In this Dec. 7, 1999 file photo, Russian Mi-24 helicopter gunships kick up dust near Urus Martan, 19 kilometers (12 miles) southwest of the Chechen capital Grozny. Syria has received dozens of Soviet-built Mi-8 transport helicopters and Mi-24 helicopter gunships since the Cold War times with the last deliveries taking place in the 1990s, and some of them require major repairs that can only be done by Russian repair plants.

    FILE - In this Nov. 9, 1983 file photo, U.S. Army Capt. Henry Fore, head of the graves registration team, examines a burned wristwatch found in a shallow grave containing three to four bodies at the Calivigny military training compound in Grenada, after a civilian told military authorities he saw the body of former Grenada's Prime Minister Maurice Bishop and three other people burned and buried in the garbage pit. A haunting Cold War mystery is getting a fresh look on the Caribbean island of Grenada, where the body of the Marxist prime minister is still missing nearly 30 years after he was executed during a bloody coup that sparked a U.S. invasion.

    People walk on the tarmac of the new Berlin-Brandenburg Airport outside Berlin May 12, 2012. The opening of the airport, also known as Willy Brandt Airport after West Germany's Cold War chancellor, will be delayed by up to three months due to fire safety problems, authorities said on Tuesday, dealing an embarrassing blow to the German capital's flagship project less than a month before its planned launch.
