The Influence of Domestic Politics on The Cuban Missile Crisis

On Monday 22nd October, 1962, President John F Kennedy addressed the nation on television to announce a decision to place a quarantine around the island of Cuba, a decision that was in reply to the “secret, swift, and extraordinary build-up of Communist missiles on the island”[1] and one that would threaten to take not just the United States but the entire world to “the abyss of nuclear destruction and the end of mankind.”[2] This resolution was a result of six days of intensive, stress-ridden meetings that considered the consequences of each response to the Soviet placement of nuclear missiles on the island of Cuba, a mere 93 miles from the coast of Florida. 4,179 more words
