Keeping Control

One of the most lessons to remember about the 1962 Cuban Missile crisis was.....not losing control. Despite intense pressure for an invasion of Cuba Kennedy kept his cool and worked the levers of power did not over react or over reach because while you might think your intelligence is good you don't have it all and you simply don't know entirely for certain what the adversary's next move might be.
Thirty years later we discovered something we didn't know Cuba had. A thousand short range nuclear tipped rockets which would have greeted the US Navy when it came sailing into Cuban waters. Not all that much explosive power but more than enough nuclear contamination to destroy the entire armada.
The challenge for Biden and the West in this situation is not to lose control by over reacting.

Have a source since I didn't know about this and would like to read more about it?

I tried googling "Cuba thousand short range nuclear tipped rockets".

Nothing to see here.... Move along.
There's a lot of rust free classic cars in Cuba that we should have taken instead of meddling in other foreign affairs.

It's clear that Democrats like bacha realize this disastrous administration is a complete failure.

Start a few more threads about this latest nail in the coffin. Lol. Your dreams of a radical left wing agenda are dead. Give it up.
