  • October 16, 1962 The White House
  • Wow! I can't believe it worked, I think I can hear JFK and his advisors from here.
  • Ever since Fidel Castro took power in 1959, after he led the Cuban revolution, I have been worried about what he will do. 
  • Yes, we must keep a close eye on Castro and his communist ties to the Soviet Union
  • Hello Mr. President, I Robert MacNamera, secretary of defense, have just been informed that our spy planes have discovered the construction of Soviet missiles in Cuba!
  • How dare they do this, these missiles threaten millions of American lives! The country will be put into Defcon 2 and I will decide what to do very soon.
  • Hello gentlemen, I have brought you here to discuss how we will deal with the missiles we have discovered on the nearby communist island of Cuba.
  • I suggest that we use a quarantine to prevent Soviet ships from reaching Cuba and then we will solve the crisis diplomatically.
  • I think we should bomb Cuba in order to destroy the missiles.
  • President Kruschev, I have put Cuba in a quarantine which has successfully turned back 25 Soviet ships, I'm willing to lift the quarantine if you agree to take your missiles out of Cuba so we can avoid a nuclear holocaust by settling this diplomatically.
  • Thank you for your cooperation I will remove my missiles and I'm happy the Cuban Missile Crisis is now over.
  • John F Kennedy and Nikita Kruschev negotiation October 28, 1962
  • Hello President Kennedy, I will agree to remove the missiles because I too want to avoid nuclear war, but under the condition that you remove your missiles from Turkey
  • Well, now I have seen what really happened behind the scenes during the Cuban Missile Crisis. This truly was an educational adventure but now that I have found all of my belongings it has to an end.
