Cuban Missle Crisis

Storyboard Text

  • *This would also provided protection for Cuba, which was an ally of the USSR.*
  • Sir, we received word that the U.S. has installed missiles in Turkey. This can be very dangerous.
  • Okay, we are going to place some of our military weapons including 36 ballistic missiles in Cuba.
  • Nikita Khrushchev was the leader of the Soviet Union from 1958-1964
  • John F. Kennedy was President from 1961-1963
  • Cuba´s Missiles 90 mi. from Miami!!
  • J.F.K calls for U.S Naval Blockade around Cuba days after Missile news!!
  • Oh No! This news has caused ciaos in the U.S.
  • The Soviet Union and the U.S. were both considered the superpowers at the time, and tensions were high, especially with the creation of nuclear weapons.
  • Meanwhile the world was in the middle of the Cold War!
  • Havana, Cuba
  • During the 13 day period of the Cuban Missile crisis, both countries had a very intense naval ¨showdown¨
  • U.S. Naval Blockade
  • Miami, Florida
  • Soviet Ships bound for Cuba
  • Over the course of the Cuban Missile Crisis, both leaders communicated over messages and letters to try and solve the situation.
  • Nikita Krushchev
  • John F. Kennedy
  • Dear Mr. Kennedy, we both face M.A.D., so in order to avoid that we will remove the missiles in exchange for Cuba´s safety from being invaded by the U.S. once they are removed.
  • Dear Mr. Krushchev, the U.S. agrees to you original terms of removing missiles in Cuba in exchange to not invading Cuba. However, we do not agree to removing our Turkish missiles.
  • Thanks to this negotiation this crisis was avoided, and ended without nuclear destruction!!
  • Even though we can not publicly speak on the issue of the Turkish missiles, we both know that they were moved in addition to the other agreements.
  • Those Turkish missiles were old and not working, so it made it easier to agree to that condition.
