Asked in Cold War, Cuba, Cuban Missile Crisis
Why didn't the US overthrow Castro?
Castro took charge of Cuba in 1959. The US tried to invade and overthrow Castro's government in the 1961 Bay of Pigs Invasion; the country repelled the US forces. Cuba had become allies with the Soviet Union in 1959, and after the failed US invasion attempt, the Soviet Union and Cuba agreed to secretly station nuclear missiles in Cuba. The US was already experiencing tension with the Soviet Union; if they attacked Cuba again, the Soviet Union/Cuba would react by initiating war via the missiles. The Cuban Missile Crisis brought the US to the brink of nuclear war with the Soviet Union, and after the removal of the missiles was negotiated, the US backed down because they didn't want tensions to heighten again. This happened during the Cold War, which started in 1947 and didn't end until 1991. The embargo set up by the US against Cuba in 1962 is still in effect today; other US interactions with Cuba have been minimal.

Asked in Vietnam War
Who was the leader of Cuba when they attacked America?
Cuba never attacked the US. Castro's been (or was) the leader of Cuba since 1959. If your question is referring to the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, that wasn't a war. It was a "crisis"...meaning, it was ALMOST a war (a nuclear war). The Soviets removed the atomic missiles from Cuba and we departed.
Asked in Spanish-American War
What happened to Cuba after the Spanish-American War?
Cuba did not become a US colony, or at least not in the way that the Philippines, Guam, and Puerto Rico did. However, the US did install a pro-American government in Cuba, and the US Navy maintained a base at Guantanamo Bay. The pro-American government (actually a military dictatorship) was eventually toppled by Fidel Castro's communists in 1959, but the US managed to keep the base at Guantanamo.
