Did JFK use his presidential powers to make the correct decision during the Cuban missile crisis? I believe John F. Kennedy used his powers correctly in order to help him make the right decision. He used his powers to make decisions to keep the situation from escalating. He knew when to call off a decision and when to follow through with it. The first force of action Kennedy decided to take on Cuba was the economic blockade.
Identification and evaluation of sources "Was the Bay of Pigs invasion the main cause of the Cuban Missile Crisis?" is the question that this investigation will solely focus on responding to. The evidence to accurate answers to the question are what appeared on the lines of investigation while searching for the causes of events that lead to the crisis. Thus, two sources are of particular significance to the investigation: My Life by Fidel Castro and Meeting Sheds New Lights On Cuban Missile Crisis article written by Richard Bernstien, as they both explicitly state the causes of the crisis and provide an overall hindsight about what happened afterwards.

Now we must be ready for a new danger: the atomic bomb. Duck and Cover! To think that at one point in America’s history there was a necessity for extreme precaution against the potential utter destruction of cities produces many questions about the political tensions prevalent during this time. It may be difficult to try to wrap our minds around a time when the government issued an awareness film to try and preserve lives from the hypothetical event of an atomic bomb detonation. As the context of the clip flutters in things begin to seem more understandable in the sense that this course of action was necessary.
The Cuban Missile Address is delivered October 22nd, 1962 in the Presidential office through a major radio and television address (Podell, Anzovin, and States United 705). Historically, it is worth mentioning that United States had attempted to overthrow Fidel Castro, who was at the time Prime Minister of the Republic of Cuba, in at least two occasions known as the Bay of Pigs Operation and Operation Mongoose, because of his communist regime and close relationship with the Soviet Union (Pious). Then, after the Bay of Pigs incident, Fidel Castro urged Nikita Khrushchev, the Secretary General of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, to send support and weapons to Cuba, because of the fear of another attack to his person/regime, Nikita did by sending missiles capable of carrying weapons of mass destruction, hence, this major crisis that lasted 14 days ending October 28, 1962 (Deinema and Leydesdorff). In addition, the target audience for this speech is the American people as President starts his speech with the phrase, “Good evening, my fellow citizens” (Kennedy); however, the secondary audience would be the Cuban people, whom he describes as captive people, the Soviet Union leaders, whom he directly addresses and even quotes, and Fidel Castro of course (Kennedy). As noted above, the cultural, socio-political context is important to understand the seriousness of this crisis and
Fidel plays a significant role in the Crisis in terms of alignment with a great power in conflict, resulting with an involvement in a conflict himself and the agreement of the placement of nuclear weapons on the Cuban soil, that triggered American anger even more than it had already been done after two failed invasion attempts. Section E – Conclusion To justify the significance of Fidel’s role in the Cuban Missile Crisis aspects such as Khrushchev’s real intentions and Kennedy’s actions must be taken into account. Knowing the lack of respect that Khrushchev had for Fidel and the amount of effort that the US put in attempting the invasion of Cuba, twice, the conclusion can be made as the Cuba was an area that was significant to the Cold War and for the two great powers to balance with each other. The amount of effort it took to solve the problem (an exchange of letters) shows that the problem wasn’t as great since it was easy to resolve. Word count: 1,529

An Olive Branch in Troubled Times On January 20, 1961, President John F. Kennedy delivered his famous inaugural address in the middle of the cold war. The conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union had caused much division in the United States election, resulting in his narrow victory. Kennedy, at the time he took the presidential office, was the first Roman Catholic and the youngest president to ever hold the position. These two factors caused even more speculation on whether Kennedy was a fit president especially at such a conflicted time. With this tension in mind, Kennedy sought to unite the divided country and reinvigorate patriotism in the new generation of Americans.
On what was expected to be another day for every American became a burning memory in both Americans and America’s history. September 11, 2001 was the day where fear shook America into recklessly declaring war on terror against Iraq.

The Cold war can be seen as a framework, which shaped every aspect of the world politics and entangled every individual state into the struggle for power and competition between the two great authorities, the United States and the Soviet Union. At the peak of an ongoing struggle over the influence and power, the termination of British Raj in South Asia, led to emergence of two new independent states, India and Pakistan. After years of British governance and influence, two states were in rather weak position, which made them prone to Soviet penetration. This led, the Truman administration to make efforts in order to construct good bilateral relations with both India and Pakistan and to keep them by its side in the global struggle. In order
