Nikita Khrushchev saw that Kennedy did not supply planes and troops as a sign of instability and weakness in him and he urged to press him to make mistakes to make the Soviet Union and Communism look stronger to the world than the U.S. and Capitalism. Kennedy and the CIA planned another operation to try to remove Castro form power. The operation was called Operation Mongoose. The purpose was to weaken the Cuban government through sabotage and other means but they
Castro believed that the negotiations that the Soviet Union engaged in with the united States were made at the expense of Cuba’s defense. Castro was paranoid between the agreement that was made and displayed several mood swings while dealing with the Soviet Union. Anastas Mikoyan, was responsible for maintaining the relationship between the Soviet Union and Cuba during the missile transfer. Mikoyan, was a Soviet Union politician who had great power within the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. It was of vital importance that Castro not be able to maintain control of the missiles which had an explosive force equal to 100 Hiroshima-sized bombs.
We see in this Film crucial role of the president and his advisers how they solve this conflict without war. President Kennedy took a complex sentence, he promised that the United States not to invade Cuba if Russia withdrew its missiles. but if Khrushchev had not accepted the offer within 24 hours, it will attack Cuba. The president is under intense pressure from his military commanders, who want to shoot first but Kennedy does not want to make it the war. He knows that if war breaks out it will be a world war III.
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".
In 1952 the US got involved after Nicaragua solicited U.S. assistance to overthrow the Guatemalan leader, Jacobo Arbenz Guzman. President Truman authorized the shipment of weapons and money to anti-Arbenz groups. But, within five weeks the operation to topple Arbenz quickly fizzled when representatives loyal to the president uncovered the plot and took steps to solidify their power. Later Eisenhower sought to defend American interests abroad with an increase in funds for nuclear weapons and covert operations. After that, convinced that Arbenz threatened U.S. national security because of his alleged Communist sympathies, Eisenhower approved the first-ever clandestine military action in Latin America.
The Cuban rebellion was an Anti- imperialist uprising against the dictator Fulgencio Batista who took the control of the government of the country on 10 March 1952 by carrying out a military stroke. As a result he will keep on exercising power over Cuba by taking some political decisions such as creating a stretch bond with the U.S, and giving total access to the Cuban area and forbidding democratic issues over the island which will encouraged a group of students under the leadership of Fidel Castro Ruz to strike against Batista’s government. The aim of our investigation is to demonstrate up to what extent Argentina support Cuba’s rebellion. Our limitations of the scope will include the consequences of the rebellion and how Argentina as Latin
However, due to his communist idealism, he opposed capitalism and did not allow Cuban citizens to make their own profit. The amount of land that a person owned was limited along with an individual’s income (Fidel Castro). In addition to this, Castro’s way of ruling was extremely harsh. He incarcerated or eliminated anyone who rebelled against the government. However, in 2008, Raul Castro became president since Fidel Castro was ill. One may have expected Raul Castro to

Soviet supported North Vietnam, and in vice versa, while America didn`t have any support. A fight between communism and
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.
Sir Winston Churchill was of the viewpoint that the free people of the world shall not be forced to live in a way they don’t like. He was in the favor of the democracy and the practice of democracy in the whole world not only in Eastern Europe or Western Europe. He wanted and highlighted that the Communist Soviet Union now Russia may take over the democratic Europe and force people to live in a communist society. Although the points highlighted by Winston Churchill arouse resentment among Russians it helped the world from a communist superpower. This also led to a cold war in the world among the two allies who were struggling for power but it also helped the democratic free people to live a free democratic

Castro was the first Soviet state to take action to prevent the up-and-coming apartheid (helping). Castro deployed around 36,000 troops to Anglo in 1975 and his influence remained until 1988. Cuba,
 The idea of containment was first proposed by U.S. diplomat George F. Kennan, during the presidency of U.S. president Harry S. Truman, to stop the spread of communism.  Kennan proposed that the United States aid in the development of democratic countries by giving them economic and political support, military equipment and training, and also waging war against communist regimes if necessary. Rebels would be given support so that they could overthrow the ruling communist governments. Kennan 's ideas were heavily criticized by newspapers, but his idea of blocking the expansion of Soviet influence remained a key interest and main strategy of the United States throughout the Cold War. Containment was first used during the Korean War in which NATO forces intervened and fought off North Korean and Chinese forces from taking over all of Korea and creating a communist government.
The United States engaged in a Cold War with the Soviet Union in an attempt to limit the development of the Communist military power and ideological influence. As alliances between the USSR and Western Nations terminated, the United States established a foreign policy that promoted non-communist nations. In 1947, President Harry S. Truman delivered a speech before a joint session of Congress. The speech, later named the Truman Doctrine, declared that the US would “provide political, military and economic assistance to all democratic nations under threat from external or internal authoritarian forces” ( ). Truman specifically called for Congress to support Greeks against Communist uprisings.
