Datebook: October 16 - Cuban Missile Crisis Begins 50 Years Ago

Oct 16, 2012

The Cuban Missile Crisis began on this day in 1962, a confrontation between the Soviet Union & Cuba and the US - a major moment in the Cold War. Cuban and Soviet governments began building secret nuclear missile bases with the ability to strike most of the US. It was diffused with agreements to never invade Cuba and that missiles on both sides would be dismantled.
