Transcript

  • 1. Cuba was a major source of concern after it became communist. Fidel Castro became the communist leader of Cuba in 1959.
  • 2. When an American spy plane flew over Cuba and took pictures of Soviet missiles being assembled on the island, President John F. Kennedy feared the Soviets would use them to attack the United States.
  • 3. After almost two weeks of negotiations, the United States and the Soviet Union both agreed to remove missiles from certain locations close to the enemy.
  • 4. A direct military confrontation was avoided as the Soviet missiles were removed from Cuba, and in return the United States removed nuclear missiles that it had in Turkey seen by the USSR as a threat.
