The Cuban Missile Crisis was a war that came close to using nuclear weapons between the United States and the Soviet Union. It might have only lasted fourteen days but imagine what could have happened had it lasted longer.
The Soviet Union had placed launching missiles in Cuba to nuke the United States. After President Kennedy found out from a U-2 spy plane, he took action and demanded removal of the missiles. When they declined he placed missiles in Turkey.
The countries involved were the United States and the Soviet Union. The two main people involved in the crisis were President John F. Kennedy and Premier Nikita Khrushchev.
The crisis could have lasted longer but because of two people, President John F. Kennedy and Premier Nikita Khrushchev, it only lasted fourteen days. When Kennedy found out about the missiles in Cuba he demanded the removal of them. Once Khrushchev denied Kennedy’s demand, Kennedy had the United States start constructing missiles in Turkey. When Khrushchev found out he decided that he would remove missiles from Cuba if the United States removed missiles from Turkey.
