Baliktanaw sa Kasaysayan: Missile Crisis, sa Cuba Italy at Turkey
Baliktanaw sa Kasaysayan:
Bago ang Cuban Missile Crisis, sa Italy at Turkey muna nagkaroon ng mga missile bases noong 1962, ngunit laging tampok sa US media, kahit sa Pilipinas, ang Cuban missile crisis at itinatago na nauna ang US kaysa Soviet sa paglalagay ng mga missile bases. Kumbaga'y kontra-missile ang ginawa ng Soviet sa Cuba dahil meron nang mga missile ang US sa Italy at Turkey na nakatutok sa USSR.
"The Cuban Missile Crisis was provoked by the Soviet construction of missile bases in Cuba but there were earlier actions by the US that helped create the nuclear conflict. In April 1962, the US deployed the Jupiter medium-range ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads in Italy and Turkey. Considering that the Cold War was characterized by conventional and nuclear arms races, the Soviet counter-missile measures in Cuba were a predictable response to the US missiles in Turkey." - from the article PROTESTS IN TURKEY AGAINST US-NATO MISSILE DEPLOYMENTS by Bruce Gagnon
