Missiles were sent to Cuba from the USSR to make fear for the US, but never to actually fire the missiles.
Russia sent missiles to Cuba because Cuba was already in a conflict where the U.S had attempted to assassinate Fidel Castro. Russia took advantage of Fidel's anger and sent the missiles to Cuba in which Cuba threatened to use them against the U.S
I think that it is pretty obvious as to why the US was concerned, Cuba is only 90 miles from the US. Missiles fired from Cuba could have hit the US and started World War 3.
actually the missiles are from the Russians, they were just hidden in Cuba so the Americans won't detect it. unfortunately thanks to spy planes the Americans still found it out.
The USA had missile bases in Turkey which were pointing directly at the USSR so the USSR put missiles on Cuba so that they were pointing directly at the USA. So therefore if the USA ordered the missiles in Turkey to attack the USSR, then the USSR could just straight away order the missiles in Cuba to attack the USA.
you need to work hard to find out
The U.S. agreed to not invade Cuba. They also agreed the removal of U.S. missiles in Turkey in return the Soviets took the missiles from Cuba.
No. Cuba itself never had nuclear missiles although the USSR set up nuclear missile launch sites in Cuba.
You have it entirely backwards. The USSR was arming Cuba with missiles to use for defense against a possible US attack on Cuba.
The Soviet Union lent Cuba nuclear missiles in order to protect the sovereignty of Cuba, a communist nation.
In September of 1962, the USSR began placing medium range missiles in Cuba.
They did not install missiles in Cuba. They were building the launching pads and facilities to contain them. But the US blockaded the country and threatened military action if the missiles were delivered.
President Kennedy sent US warships to blockade Cuba and prevent Soviet ships from delivering more nuclear materials to Cuba. This led to the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Missiles were not sent to Cuba in the Cuban Missile crisis. In 1962 an American spy plane flying over Cuba detected a Russian built missile base. President Kennedy ordered a "Quarantine" (or blockade) of Cuba so that Russia could not send reinforcements to defend the missile base or bring in more missiles. Cuba is only about 90 miles off the Coast of Florida; a foreign missile base so close to the borders of our country was deemed a threat to National Security. For almost two weeks the United States and Russia teetered on the brink of Nuclear War Eventually Russia backed down and removed its missiles from Cuba in exchange for the voluntary removal of U.S. missiles from Turkey and a promise to never invade Cuba. For more information on this subject, watch the movie, "Thirteen Days" starring Kevin Costner (2001).
The leaders of both nations (The US and the USSR) sent immediate messages to each other and reached an agreement that the USSR would take the missiles out of cuba, if the US promised to not attack Cuba, and also for the US to remove its missiles from Turkey after a few months.
Russia placed missiles in Cuba during the cold war to provide counter attack if the USA. made a attack. The missiles were eventually moved out of Cuba when JFK won a debate between Fidel Castro, JFK, and Nikita Khrushchev.because the U.S. already has missiles in turkeyThe Soviet missiles were located in Cuba, because it was close enough to the Soviet enemy(US), and Fidel Castro was willing to put the missiles in his country.
There was never any actual missiles in Cuba, only launchpad contrustions sites that were spotted and photographed by an American U2 spyplane.
The Soviet Union.
That was in 1962 and the US acted correctly in stopping ships carrying missiles to Cuba.
There was no bombing of nuclear missiles in Cuba. The US got them removed by just blockading (oops sorry I meant quarantining, a blockade would have been an act of war) Cuba until the USSR removed the missiles.
Kennedy responded to Soviet missiles in Cuba by a naval quarantine of Cuba to prevent the shipment of new missiles coupled with nuclear threat. When soviet ships carrying missiles were near to Cuba, the were stopped by American ships and ordered to turn back. No one in the US knew what the Soviets might do, but they turned back peacefully.There have already been tensions between Cuba and the US ever since Castro came to power in the late 1950s. Cuba became communist and began negotiations with the Soviet Union (The US's enemy during the Cold War). The Soviet Union wanted to counter the US missiles in Turkey by sending intermediate ranged missiles into Cuba. This action caused panic within America and President Kennedy was forced to promise that he would no longer attempt to overthrow Castro or the Cuba government and he would take his missiles out of Turkey if the Soviet Union took their missiles out of the Cuba.He ordered a Quarantine on cuba and stopped the soviet ships from bringing any missiles to cuba. This was due to concerns that the soviets can attack the west.
The Soviet Union (USSR), now known as Russia, placed nuclear missiles in Cuba to protect themselves against the missiles that the United States had placed in Turkey.
