Best Answer

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.
