But 99% of what you Libtards get in information comes from sites like Wikipedia and do they mention our missiles in turkey or the cancellation of the Skybolt in relation to the end of the Cuban Missile Crisis?<quoted text>
The issue of US missiles in Turkey as it pertains to Cuban missile crisis was well known since the 1970s. I distinctly recall having read about it in the Pentagon Papers over thirty years ago.
This Wiki article does not mention the Saturn missile withdrawal until near the end and Libtards seldom read that far and the Skybolt cancellation is not even mentioned!
Cuban missile crisis
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The nuclear-armed Jupiter intermediate-range ballistic missile. The US secretly agreed to withdraw these missiles from Italy and Turkey.
The compromise embarrassed Khrushchev and the Soviet Union because the withdrawal of US missiles from Italy and Turkey was a secret deal between Kennedy and Khrushchev. The Soviets were seen as retreating from circumstances that they had started. Khrushchev's fall from power two years later was in part because of the Politburo embarrassment at both Khrushchev's eventual concessions to the US and his ineptitude in precipitating the crisis in the first place. According to Dobrynin, the top Soviet leadership took the Cuban outcome as "a blow to its prestige bordering on humiliation".
Cuba perceived the outcome as a partial betrayal by the Soviets, given that decisions on how to resolve the crisis had been made exclusively by Kennedy and Khrushchev. Castro was especially upset that certain issues of interest to Cuba, such as the status of the US Naval Base in Guantánamo, were not addressed. This caused Cuban-Soviet relations to deteriorate for years to come.:278 On the other hand, Cuba continued to be protected from invasion.
Although General Curtis LeMay told the President that he considered the resolution of the Cuban missile crisis the "greatest defeat in our history"
