In my opinion Lemnitzer and his accomplices were not fit for a job in politics. John Glenn was to become the first American to orbit the earth. He was scheduled to lift off on 20th February 1962, Lemnitzer proposed to general Landsdale that they should rig Glens rocket to explode and therefore killing him. This explosion would be blamed on Cuba. Lemnitzer said “the objective is to provide irrevocable proof that...the fault lies with the communists et al Cuba” he

The Bay of Pigs Invasion was a failed military invasion of Cuba undertaken by the Central Intelligence Agency; it wasn’t originally John F. Kennedy 's idea. As the communist nature of Fidel Castro 's regime became apparent, the urge to topple his government grew. Dwight D. Eisenhower 's administration planned the invasion, which would be handled by the CIA. Planning for the invasion began in 1960, before diplomatic ties with Cuba had been broken. The location was in the southern coast of Cuba.
In 1957 the soviets launched the first ever satellite in space called “Sputnick”. Many American people were shocked and worried that the satellite was spying on America.

Tom Brady has dominated in the NFL ever since he has been drafted. When you look at Tom Brady’s career stats, you won’t see any season that really pops out. This is because every season was a monster season. Well, not in 2008 because he was injured, but other than that, he is a very elite
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 Cold War was a very significant period of time in the history of the world. The two Superpowers, USSR and the United States of America, were in the battlefield of ideology representing Socialism and Capitalism respectively. One of the most crucial conflicts in this Nuclear Arms Race was the Cuban Missile Crisis; in fact, it was the closest that the two sides ever got to the nuclear annihilation of the entire human species. As per the Monroe Doctrine of 1823, all the Americas would eventually be under the United States of America, and this supposedly justified the Bay of Pigs invasion by the U.S. to overthrow Castro, and return Capitalism to the nation. In consequence to this threatening attack of the U.S. Castro approached Khrushchev for economic and military support to stand up against Kennedy.

Waco is a growing city in Central Texas with a population of about 130,000 people. Within this growing city lies a private, baptist university with a growing reputation for success in college football, Baylor. Baylor is a modern example of overrated success, the American bandwagoner 's dream, and the copycat system of head coaches today in football. Over the past few years Baylor has become known for their high octane offense, where they use speed to accelerate passed defenses to score, and they do score a lot, and the don 't let up. The system prefers a mobile quarterback, since that 's when it works best, such as when Robert Griffin III was at quarterback, Bryce Petty was underrated for his ability to run with the ball, he got what
