JFK Speech on the Cuban Missile Crisis

The Cuban Missile Crisis begins On October 14, 1962 when American planes photographed Soviet missiles of long scope in the island of Cuba.

If the U.S. attacked the sites, it might lead to nuclear war with the URSS but if they were not doing anything they would have nuclear weapon a few kilometres of distance of to country.

 The president, J.F Kennedy, initiated conversations with the Soviets for the dismantlement of the missiles in Cuba.

One week later,  the Soviet Prime minister Nikita Jrushchov and him reached an agreement: The USSR would withdraw the missiles and the USA  would sign an agreement for the not invasion to Cuba.
