First, they needed to make sure the leaders approved and revised it so no miscommunications would happen and someone would get the wrong idea and begin world nuclear war. President Kennedy said something a little more different. He said the U.S. would call off the quarantine and promise not to invade Cuba if the Soviet Union disassemble the missiles on the island and remover them under U.N. (United Nations) inspection. Khrushchev also wanted to have the U.S. remove their
But russia later found out the truth as they found much of the plane had survived and they had hold of the pilot who flew it. This brang the two nations to a nuclear war. Creation of the berlin wall ( 1961 august 13th) This wall was put together dead in the night and basically stopped all the east germans from fleeing to the east side . The Cuban Missile Crisis ( October 15th 1962) This crisis was between the United nations and the Soviet union caused a major problem.The soviets began to place some weapons like bombs into cuba . Cuba then decided that they would go under quarantine which at the time was seen as an act of war.
Another reason why America was aggressive is because for example, when there was a meeting on what action the US should take against Cuba and USSR, three out of the four proposals were ones that could probably cause another war. One of the proposals was to destroy the Soviet missiles in Cuba by an airstrike, which is a very intense act. Furthermore, another reason why I agree with Cuba’s point of view, is because America was unfair with its ‘regulations’ with Cuba. Castro was not allowed to keep Soviet missiles in his land, because Kennedy stated that it was a threat to the security of the US. While on the other hand, the US had all the nuclear power to fire at Cuba at any time without any conditions.
With his advisers, he decided on a naval blockade to prevent Russian ships delivering the missiles for the Cuban sites. Monday 22 October Kennedy announces a naval blockade of Cuba. B52 nuclear bombers are deployed, so that one-eighth of them are airborne all the time. Kennedy warns of a full retaliatory response, if any missile is launched from Cuba. Tuesday 23 October Khrushchev explains that the missile sites are "solely to defend Cuba against the attack of an aggressor".
11 The Cuban Missile Crisis - During the Cuban Missile Crisis, leaders of the U.S. and the Soviet Union engaged in a tense, 13-day political and military standoff in October 1962 over the installation of nuclear-armed Soviet missiles on Cuba, just 90 miles from U.S. shores. I rate this 7 because it was the closest the U.S. and the USSR got into. It could have resulted into a war. The soviets had to remove their bombs on a certain date, and if they didn`t, U.S. would attack. 12 The Vietnam War - Communists supported by North Vietnam, and the U.S. supported South Vietnam, North Vietnamese leader wanted to reunite Vietnam.
The Cuban Missile Crisis occurred in the month of October, 1962 when American-Soviet relations were tested by the installation of nuclear missiles in Cuba by the Soviet Union. Many historians point to this moment in time as the closest the United States and the Soviets ever came to nuclear war. The tensions began to rise once the Bay of Pigs invasion of 1961, supported by the American government, failed to remove Fidel Castro from power in Cuba. As a result, Castro was open for the Soviet Premier Khrushchev to place troops and nuclear missiles to threaten the United States. Khrushchev considered this justifiable because of the American missiles positioned in Turkey.
To begin with, the time period the document belongs to is the twentieth century. During this time period, the United States has just finished World War II and had many disagreements with the Soviet Union during the Tehran and Yalta conferences. Eventually, the U.S and the Soviet Union had nuclear weapons pointed at each other. The threat of the Soviet Union made many Americans afraid of communism. In 1946, Richard Nixon was part of the U.S House of Representatives; he was assigned to the Select Committee on Foreign Aid and told European countries about the Marshall Plan.
The United States were strongly opposed to the Soviet Union and any other related party to the Soviet Union. The United States was currently in the Cold War with the Soviet Union because the United States feared the spread of Communism in the Americas, and its sister, socialism. The Sandinista government, which was a socialist government, was a communist party in the eyes of the Americans (Sullivan & Jordan). The spread of Communism into the Americans, previously in Cuba led the Americans to view the new communist party as a threat to their society and the many surrounding democratic nations. The United States, who were currently in state of tension with the Soviet Union and other Communist parties, known as the Cold War, were perturbed by the proximity of the emerging communist nation and felt the need to get involved.
Though Presidents John F. Kennedy, Nikita Khrushchev and Fidel Castro had a rational identity, they would start a nuclear war. According to some theories , decision-making progress based on state interests, not moral values so some rational decisions can be threat of extinction of any kind of nation. To illustrate, think about the bomb that the military commander LeMay has dropped to the ground. Just in one night, he has burned thousands of civil woman and children to
Firstly, the use of diplomacy instead of military in order to prevent a large number of casualties and reach a definite solution. During the Cold War, America wished to defeat communism and through the diplomacy implemented within the Cuban Missile Crisis it managed to do so ideologically instead of restoring to military force. After the agreement reached between Kennedy and Khrushchev, the Soviet Union could no longer afford to keep up its military forces throughout the world and therefore no longer face the United States military. This crippled the Soviets as the people no longer viewed communism as a successful way of being the world’s superpower, which became America. Therefore, the Nigerian government should attempt to reach a compromise with the Boko Haram group, so that the situation won’t get out of hand since military force is expensive and creates instability in the country since many soldiers began to abuse their power.
