The Cuban missile crisis

Even after many reassurances made by the Soviet Union that they were only sending defensive weapons to Cuba, in reality, things were completely different. Their true intentions were to plant their missiles on the island.

However, the secret came out the moment an American U-2 spy plane discovered and photographed various missiles being sneaked into Cuba. Then, on October 22, President John F. Kennedy made an announcement that the Soviets had stationed missiles, which were capable of carrying nuclear warheads, only 90 miles off the American coastline.

The Soviet Union tried to conceal the missile sites with different tarps, nets, paint, and mud, but their attempts failed.

  2. EXCELLENT ARTICLE. I HAVE HEARD OF MANY OF THESE DURING MY LIFE AS FAR BACK AS I CAN REMEMBER. THE WORST ONES ARE THE POLITICAL LIES THAT PROBABLY INFLICT MORE DAMAGE AND SUFFERING TO ALL MANKIND THAT ALL THE OTHER CATEGORIES COMBINED. MY FATHER TOLD ME OVER SIXTY FIVE YEARS AGO THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU LIKE ANY GIVEN POLITICAL FIGURE, YOU CAN NEVER TRUST ANYTHING THAT COMES OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS. HE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN AS HE WAS DEEPLY INVOLVED IN LOCAL POLITICS AT THE LOCAL AND STATE LEVEL AND WAS PRETTY MUCH DISGUSTED WITH THE SYSTEM IN HIS LATER YEARS.

  3. HItler was right! Jews were and still are the enemy of society and now globally. They own every centural bank in the world, news stations, Hollywood, TV shows and all to control and manipulate the world.

  4. I am having trouble understanding how the 1919 Black Sox scandal qualifies as a “lie,” or the Cuban missile crisis.
    That’s two of the first three: time to quit.
