How was the Cuban Missile Crisis a Cold War event?

The Cuban Missile Crisis was when Cuba allowed Russia to store nuclear weapons in their country. This was done because of the short distance between Cuba and the United States. The Cold War was a threat of nuclear war between the Soviet Union and the United States, in addition to all of their allies, in which the two countries were fighting over world power status. The Cold War was also a war between democracy and communism. This was the single most event that cut off Cuban and American relationships, and today, the two countries do not have any foreign diplomatic relations.


What was the impact the Cuban Missile Crisis had on US foreign policy?

After the Cuban Missile Crisis, the US learned how it was our own fears that may have caused the USSR to place missiles in Cuba. We had missiles all around Russsia, and that made them think we were going to attack. There were some important factors that we should have learned. First, we can cause our own destruction by casusing fear in others. Secondly, we should have learned not to trust our own Intel. agency. The CIA reported that none of the missiles in Cuba were armed yet. Later, we found that they were armed. Had Kennedy ordered an attack on Cuba, it could have started a nuclear war. Both of these lessions have long been forgotten. As our policy today is one of pure aggression, based on false Intel.. Hope this will help you.- Katherine k


What were John F Kennedy foreign and domestic policies?

Kennedy's domestic policy was a package of social services he called the New Frontier. He also pushed some advancements in civil rights for Blacks and the space program.In his foreign policy, Kennedy apparently believed in brinkmanship-- pushing to the very edge of war and hoping the enemy backs down. The strategy worked on his two crises with the USSR -- the Berlin blockade and the Cuban missile crisis. Based on his intervention in Vietnam ,a part of his policy was one continued today, namely to try to keep US friendly governments in power even if they are despotic.Kennedy apparently believed in brinkmanship-- pushing to the very edge of war and hoping the enemy backs down.

Why did Russia send missiles to attack America?

Do you mean missiles shipment to Cuba? Its the same as the USA today does with its missile installations on the Russian border. "For defense" ;-) It was because Cuba was attacked by airplanes and landing trops of US-led exile Cubans, i.e. the former Cuban dictator regime. Search for pig beach Cuban invasion at Google or wikipedia.


What was the Crisis in the Cuban Missile Crisis?

The Cuban Missile Crisis was the closest the world has ever been to WW3 and a nuclear war. It happened in 1962 when the Soviet Union discovered U.S. Jupiter Nuclear Missiles in Turkey, which was closer to Moscow than the Soviet's comfort. In retaliation, the Soviets began to build nuclear missiles silos in Cuba, which is awfully close to Washington D.C. and the C.I.A. found out about this and President Kennedy issued a navel blockade of Cuba, preventing the nukes from reaching Cuba. And at the point when the Soviet ships discovered this, the tensest staring contest of the 20th century started; between the U.S. Navy and the Soviet Navy. The Soviets were ordered to wait until further orders and the U.S. Navy were ordered to obliterate anything that tried to cross their line. If the Soviets continued or if they didn't get their order in time, the world would've been a VERY different place today. During the stand off, both the Soviet Union and America prepared to go to total war with the other, whilst Soviet Premier Kruschev and President Kennedy had intense negotiations to advert a nuclear catastrophe and about two weeks later, a agreement was met. The Soviets agreed to dismantle their silos in Cuba and turn their ships around in exchange that the U.S. dismantle her Jupiter Missile System in Turkey and diplomacy prevailed. The Crisis really altered the coarse of the Cold War and helped to slow it down (given that both powers felt the gravity of what they were doing) and it put a hotline between the President and Premier in case another crisis were to emerge.

What is the relevance of arguments or points made by the federalist and anti federalist to contemporary events under the present government?

Anti-federalists today feel the federal government has taken on too much power. Federal government has utilized the "elastic clause", interpretation of laws, and expanded powers to serve their best interests. Federalists feel they have justified by having the federal government take control when individual states could not have, (ie: September 11th, homeland security, recent economic crisis, international trade, Pearl Harbor, Cuban Missile Crisis, Stock market crash and depression, FDR and the new deal)

How did the Cuban Missile Crisis bring the US to the brink of war with USSR?

When the United States discovered missiles on Cuba Russia was asked to remove them. They refused the request and because Cuba is in the sphere of influence of the United States missiles 90 miles from the Florida coast couldn't be allowed. JFK set up a Naval blockade around the island cutting off all supply lines and ships into the ports. Finally, Russia agreed to remove the missiles, but the boycott of Cuba has remained. An interesting fact is today Russian Navy ships port in Cuba.

How much would it cost today to build an atomic bomb today like the one US dropped on Japan?

The first atomic bombs cost billions because they had to learn how to gather uranium and plutonium into a form that was good enough for a bomb and they had to design the bomb. Now a nuclear missile cost would be probably about a million or more. The cost of the newer missile is in the housing and maintenance of the missile.
