Have you heard of the Cuban Missile Crisis before?
No, what's that?
It was when the Soviet Union put nuclear weapons in Cuba. This was very scary for U.S. citizen's because then the USSR could nuke anywhere in the U.S.
Oh wow, how did the United States feel about this?
President Kennedy ordered a blockade, which he called a "quarentine" to sort of save himself because a blockade is considered an act of war.
Why'd he do that?
So the USSR couldn't smuggle in nuclear weapons to Cuba anymore.
In the end the US and USSR compromised a deal.
What was that?
The USSR agreed that they would take their missiles out of Cuba if the US agreed to take their missiles out of Turkey
