We didn’t want communism to spread throughout the world.
Communism was and still is right in our backyard.
Vietnam War Cuban Missile Crisis
We tried as hard as we could so communism wouldn’t spread throughout the world. Children were considered property of the state They were taken from their parents, at gunpoint, at age 4 and were brought to a military school They lose most of their rights
Bay of Pigs Invasion Failed invasion of Cuba Kennedy took full blame
We tried to stop the growing ties between Khrushchev and Castro so they wouldn’t attack us. That was the start of the Cuban Missile Crisis.
