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.
The U.S.S Main was sent over to Cuba in January 1889.
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
A combination of show of force & good will.
a naval blockade of Cuba
President McKinley sent the U.S.S Maine to Cuba to evacuate Americans.
Cortes never took over Cuba. In 1511 he joined an expedition to Cuba and became mayor of the province of Santiago, the governor of Cuba sent him off on an expedition to Mexico. He never returned to Cuba.
Good will gesture and a show of force.
