My dad was in NYC right at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis calling my mom in Argentina as though it was their last call.
God's timing is always right and todays message comes at precisely the right time for me and a few people I know."Your Father Will Care for You": "I have vague memories of the Cuban Missile Crisis, which happened in 1962 when I was in grade school. Some say it was the closest the United States has ever been to nuclear war. One of the main things I remember is that our church family brought canned food and bottled water and put it under a stairway inside the church building. The plan was that we would all gather together at church if a missile were to be launched against us." "As the adults worked, my young friends and I explored the church building. We sat under the stairs with the stockpile of food and water, and I remember thinking to myself, this wouldn't be a bad place to stay for a while. I wasn't worried about the danger at hand. I knew something very bad could happen, but reasoned that my parents would take care of me no matter what. So while the adults worried and prayed and collected bottles of w ...

"We're eyeball to eyeball, and I think the other fellow just blinked." -Secretary of State Dean Rusk, during the Cuban Missile Crisis
So apparently is about dancing, and not the missile crisis:
Let's hear for veterans. There are people out there who sometimes questions a veteran's service to their country. I say ignore those crazies because they either didn't serve or as is the case in some instances found a way to avoid military service. I served my country honorably for four years in the Air Force including service during the Cuban Missile Crisis. I never got close to combat, although my base was on the front lines during the Crisis as the Soviet Atlantic Fleet which were bringing the missiles to Cuba to be installed in the silos came within 250 miles of our base before they turned back. I chose to volunteer rather than be drafted. I had an idea I might actually make a career out of the military but then realized I was too much of a peacenik and changed my mind, but I am proud of my service to my country. But I also know there are millions who never served in the military who are good citizens and who have served this nation in a lot of other ways. There's nothing wrong with not having served ...

The blue-eyed boy of American politics, Kennedy steered America through the Bay of Pigs Invasion and the Cuban Missile Crisis. He paved the way for the moon landings and Marilyn Monroe sang for him at his birthday. When Kennedy was shot in 1963, the nation went into mourning. Though Lee Harvey Oswald was charged with the crime, controversy remains about who shot JFK. • 1917: John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy was born • 1940: Graduated from Harvard University • 1941: Enlisted for military service • 1943: Won the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for heroic conduct after a Japanese attack • 1953: Elected Senator of Massachusetts. Marries Jacqueline Lee Bouvier • 1961: Elected President of the USA, at age 43. Orders the Bay of Pigs Invasion of Cuba • 1962: Negotiated the removal of Soviet nuclear weapons in Cuba in the Cuban Missile Crisis • 1963: Assassinated in Dallas. Lee Harvey Oswald is charged with the murder. Jack Ruby shots Oswald before he could have been indicted or tried
《Preface-2》 * Facing the Cuban Missile Crisis, JFK at first said to his brother Robert Francis Kennedy commonly known as Bobby,“We can’t start worrying about everything.Right now we gotta figure out what we’re gonna do before we worry about how we’re gonna do it.” Then, Bobby replied to JFK “We’ve got a bunch of smart guys. We lock ‘em in a room and kick ‘em in the *** until they come up with some solutions. It’ll be,uh,the principals,a couple of the key guys from each Department. The Executive Committee of the National Security Council. Call it EXCOM.” * Before the EXCOM meeting,Bobby said to Secretary of Defense, Robert Strange McNamara,“Everybody agreed the diplomatic route wouldn’t work. It’s too slow and they’ll have the missiles finished while still talking.” * At the EXCOM meeting, US Ambassador to the United Nations, Adlai Ewing Stevenson II said,”I still think there are diplomatic approaches we haven’t considered yet.” Then,McGeorge "Mac" Bundy, US Nation ...
I look up Cuban Missile Crisis on Wikipedia and in the description it says, "My *** is the closest comparison to a Cuban missile"
Courtesy of Psycat: Time Machine Time: Imagine, if you will, that you're back in 1962. Entertainment consisted of watching Dean Martin getting drunk and telling jokes about drunk driving--a form of recreation at the time--to a Vegas audience, most of whom were also drunk. Something like 50% of American guys smoked as did 40% of American women. Magazines and television were full of ads for Lucky Strike, Chesterfield, Old Battle-Axe Whiskey and other corporate drugs. Housewives everywhere were cured of 'bored housewife syndrome' by a whole slew of sedatives and tranquilizers like Miltown and Librium. LSD was legal and used in psychoanalysis to help people like Cary Grant, and you could buy codeine cough syrup and amphetamines over the counter. And yet most Americans over the age of 30 were utterly baffled--baffled, I tells ya--at how the younger generation were smoking the Evil Weed From the Devil's Garden and got the silly idea that drugs could be recreational. Yes, people of that era had a serious disconn ...
Ted “Shorty” Riley, Jr. of Middleport, Ohio passed away at Overbrook Rehabilitation Center at the age of 82 on March 31, 2014. Born October 11, 1931 in West Columbia, West Virginia, he was the son of Theodore, Sr. and Mildred Roush Riley and was considered a loving, generous, and cheerful man by all who knew him. “Shorty” was an U.S. Army veteran of the Korean War, serving in the 47th Army Aircraft Mainte-nance Company. Following the war “Shorty” continued to serve his country as a member of 3664th Ordinance Company based out of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, including one year at Fort Polk, Louisiana during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and was honorably discharged as a Ser-geant in 1964. Ted married the love of his life, Clara Belle Gilmore, on October 20, 1955, and has always been known as a warm-hearted husband, father, and grandfather throughout their fifty-nine years to-gether. After his distinguished service Ted found employment at the Foote Mineral Co. and retired after 30 years as a furn ...

Matt you are a Cuban missile crisis
Just ran across my first husband's obituary. He passed away last month. Puzzled about something- the obituary said he graduated high school in 1963 (true) , then went on to say he served in the military during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Anyone else see the impossibility there?

Cold War Again: Who’s Responsible? [The Nation: Stephen F. Cohen] In the name of "Democracy," the West has unrelentingly moved its Military, Political and Economic Power ever closer to post-Soviet Russia. The East-West Confrontation over Ukraine, which led to Moscow’s annexation of Crimea but long predated it, is potentially the worst International Crisis in more than fifty years—and the most fateful. A negotiated resolution is possible, but time may be running out. A new Cold War divide is already descending in Europe—not in Berlin but on Russia’s borders. Worse may follow. If NATO Forces move into western Ukraine or even to its border with Poland, as is being called for by zealous Cold Warriors in Washington and Brussels, Moscow is likely to send its Forces into eastern Ukraine. The result would be a danger of war comparable to the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. Even if the outcome is the non-military “isolation of Russia,” today’s Western mantra, the consequences will be dire. Moscow wil ...
You're probably right. I remember Cuban missile crisis & was 33 when the Wall came down. Why are you interested in Philby?

It was 88 years ago today that my dad was born. My father was born in Cuba and fought for this country by joining the CIA during the Cuban Missile Crisis and bay of pigs because he knew that if he was going to come to America that he would have to earn his way here. when it was apparent that Cuba would no longer be free he took his family to Miami bringing his brother, sister, mother and extended family. This was not the first challenge my father had to overcome. When he was barely a teenager his father passed and he became the man of the family working to sure that his brother and sister could go to college and get the education they needed to become a doctor and a teacher. My father spent years doing whatever it took to support his family. Whether it was on a shrimp boat in the Gulf of Mexico or building ships in Bayou La Batre Alabama or selling beauty supplies for over three decades my father was never afraid of work or the pride he received from doing the right thing for all those around him.

Great book. Won the Pulitzer Prize in 1962, helped JFK manage the Cuban Missile Crisis
Any views or ideas on. Why Russia not using its own version of Monroe Doctrine . Used by US in Cuban Missile Crisis.
Getting my kids out of bed this morning is like negotiating the Cuban missile crisis - and doing a lousy job at it.
and how has Cuba "threatened" anyone beyond the Cuban Missile Crisis?
I just watched the movie "Woodstock" for the umpteenth time. Our generation has seen, heard, felt, smelled and tasted the most amazing and defiling things. Post war peace all too brief, the Cold War, Cuban Missile Crisis, Assassinations, Viet Nam,The peace & love times, segregation/ integration, womens rights, the space race, the fall of the Soviet Union, the fall of American Industry, Domestic terrorism, our first (kinda) Black President, legalization of marijuana. How could anyone call us 'cynical old folks'? We have felt the extremes of every human emotion The Great Spirit gave us. What a ride! I hope our young ones can appreciate our efforts, even if we didn't leave the world a better place like CocaCola said we would!
Generation is normally classed as about 25yrs which would exclude Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962
Remember Cuban Missile Crisis? Ukraine Crisis is quickly heading there. 2 Fronts already building up. Cold War is 'heating' up-déjà-vu
😂😂 nah man I was just gassed from pressing your *** every day. I had to let the Cuban missile crisis have a turn.
Just been watching "Thirteen Days" about the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. I just shudder to think what would have happened if Tricky Dicky or Uncle Ronnie had been in charge.
I was watching "Hollywood and Commies", a doc on the Cold War days. I thought I saw a Nike in one of the shots, but then it looked like a double, which was maybe a HawK? anywho, later they were showing some old film from the Cuban Missile Crisis, and Boom, a little film with a couple of Nikes ready to rock came on. Pretty cool.. I would guess they were the ones in Fla.. dunno.
An open letter to President Barrack Obama and President Vladimir Putin. Dear President Obama and President Putin, In February 1945, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Marshall Joseph Stalin, and Prime Minister Winston Churchill met at the town of Yalta, in the Russian Crimea. One hope for the conference as expressed by President Roosevelt was "to see the elimination of war for at least 50 years." Although the road since has been rocky, the great powers succeeded in that wish. It has now been almost 70 years without a military clash of the great powers. Now tension is rising, and although there is no talk of military engagement, the tension may escalate. One hundred years ago through mistrust, misunderstanding, and miscalculation, the European Great Powers stumbled into the tragic Great War. During the height of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy told Soviet Ambassador Dobrynin "It's hard for the president. Even if he doesn't want a war and doesn't wish for war, against his wil ...
Thrills, spills, and chills from the Eastern European hot spot, Crimea. It seems that it's a done deal in the Ukraine, as Russia and Ukraine tangle over the possession of that strategic and tactical stronghold, the prized peninsula on the Black Sea. It appears that that domineering, didactic, and downright Draconian Mr. Putin ( also known as Vlad The Impaler, and The Little Dictator ) has made true to his word ( or sword ) that Crimea shall heretofore be annexed to the Great Motherland Russia. How will Crimeans react or revolt to this *** bully boys fascist stance. Will residents of Ukraines capital stand up to him, and fight and die in the streets, or cower before him, acquiesce and submit, roll over and play dead, become Chicken Kiev. To be dominant or submissive, subjugated by Putin's power play. Can these current events in the Ukraine possibly escalate into a modern Cuban Missile Crisis, with Putin becoming the new Castro. The world is waiting and watching. Film at eleven. Good night Chet. Good ni ...

The Vought F-8 Crusader (originally F8U) was a single-engine, supersonic, carrier-based air superiority jet aircraft[2] built by Vought for the United States Navy and the Marine Corps, replacing the Vought F7U Cutlass. After the Navy's disappointing experience with the Cutlass, the Crusader was referred to by some as "Vought's Last Chance" after company founder Chance M. Vought. The first F-8 prototype was ready for flight in February 1955, and was the last American fighter with guns as the primary weapon, principally serving in the Vietnam War.[3] The RF-8 Crusader was a photo-reconnaissance development and operated longer in U.S. service than any of the fighter versions. RF-8s played a crucial role in the Cuban Missile Crisis, providing essential low-level photographs impossible to acquire by other means.[3] U.S. Naval Reserve units continued to operate the RF-8 until 1987.Design and development F8U-1 Crusader BuNo 141435 and Commander "Duke" Windsor depart China Lake for a successful speed record attem ...
Museum Ship USS Barry (DD-933) was one of eighteen Forrest Sherman-class destroyers. Commissioned in 1954, she spent most of her career in the Caribbean, Atlantic, and Mediterranean, but also served in the Vietnam War, for which she earned two battle stars. Another notable aspect of her service was the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. Washington Navy Yard, Washington D.C
The closest parallel to the Crimean situation is not the Cuban Missile Crisis or WWII, but the Berlin Blockade and Airlift.
"Ukrainian posses a formidable military industrial complex. If the Ukraine were to join the European Union and perhaps even NATO, someday, this would constitute a major national security threat to the Russians as it would make the Cuban Missile Crisis, in reverse, look tame by comparison. Most importantly, Putin is attempting to establish a Eurasian empire through the resurrection of many of the former Soviet Union States. This move is seen as being of paramount importance because the rise of this imperialistic Eurasian empire will propel the military prowess of the Russians on an equivalent level with the United States. Further, if the Russians and Chinese continue in their efforts to attempt to unseat the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, through the purchase of Iranian oil with gold, Russia must have the military muscle to back up this provocative move. The establishment of an Eurasian empire is of paramount importance to this strategy. Putin is keenly aware that without Ukraine, Putin’s drea ...
The Cold War haunted many of us when we were young, whispering always about the possibility of nuclear exchange, sometimes, as in the Cuban Missile Crisis, shouting about it, and reminding us of another kind of life, of an oppressive, miserable slave-state existence some saw as justice.
A plane has disappeared! Oh no! I'm afraid it probably crashed somewhere in the wilderness and eventually the wreckage will be found. There may be a few impressive survival stories of folk who managed to crawl from the wreckage and reach some small piece of civilization but most of them are, sadly, deceased due to fatal injuries incurred during the accident. That's how this story ALWAYS unfoldS... IN THE MEAN TIME THE WORLD'S TOP NUCLEAR POWERS ARE SPIRALING INTO ANOTHER Cold War, PEOPLE. "Oh, but at least they aren't actually going to WAR war, right?" WRONG. The Korean War, Vietnam, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Bay of Pigs invasion, those were ALL part of the Cold War, as was the knowledge that at any moment our city could be brought to its knees in atomic fire. But, please, continue, you were telling me about how *** Marriage is turning all our children into *** pedophiles and how Muslims building mosques is infringing on your religious freedom.
This is what I see from gleaning information from many news sources, East, West, Left & Right, over the course of many years. In my view and understanding of the unfolding events, The US and the West is pushing for a confrontation and Russia has drawn the Real Red Line. Red Lines are being drawn everywhere by many Nations, dissecting this world, dividing it to the point there will be no coming together or relaxing of tensions, but the contrary. The propaganda mills are working overtime demonizing Russia with the talking heads parroting the government line without having the guts to speak Truth to power. With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, NATO absorbed all the former Warsaw Pact Nations, expanding NATO to the border of the Ukraine, the last buffer State between NATO and Russia. The US unilaterally withdrew from the Anti-ballistic Missile Treaty so George Bush could deploy an anti-ballistic missile system aimed at Russia. Americans hated that with the Cuban Missile Crisis, and Russia hates it to ...

Fareed Zakaria GPS guest says the world is 2 steps away from the 2nd Cuban Missile Crisis. PEACE MUST PREVAIL
David Chase Taylor March 7, 2014 Truther.org . SWITZERLAND, Zurich — Unable to stage a Chinese-based nuclear drone attack on the state of California this March, international intelligence agencies are evidently plotting a Russian assault on U.S. ships in the Black Sea, and/or a cyber-attack against U.S. and NATO interests in Eastern Europe and the U.S. If successful, the false-flag attacks would trigger a new and improved Cold War between the United States and Russia. The surprise attacks could theoretically lead to a mini-war of sorts which would then be used to drive a political wedge between Russia and the West. In other words, a redux of the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 is in order and the Crimea Peninsula is the new Cuba. . Since pro-Russian forces have taken de facto control over the Crimea, the scene has also been set for a redux of the Crimean War (1853-1857) in which Russia lost to an alliance of France, Britain, the Ottoman Empire, and Sardinia. As of March 7, 2014, Ukraine reportedly missed i ...
Shared By A Patriot WHEN JFK looked weak to Nikita Khrushchev, we got the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1963. When Jimmy Carter bear-hugged Brezhnev, we got the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. When Bill Clinton failed to stop Bin Laden for seven whole years, we got 9/11/01 in New York City. And when Obama clowned it up for the world, alienating our allies and bowing down to our deadly enemies, we got this week’s Russian invasion of the Ukraine. AND that’s only the beginning. Just you watch. Putin is establishing a naval presence in Venezuela and Cuba. He already has a major naval base in Syria. He wants to control Middle Eastern oil, and by making Iran and Saudi Arabia dependent on him, he might be able to do it. Obama has systematically dismantled Western and U.S. defenses, stabbed allies like Egypt’s Mubarak in the back, invaded Libya without a shred of justification, and backed murderous reactionary gangsters in Syria, Libya, Iran, and Egypt. Our president betrayed U.S. personnel in Benghazi, and pur . ...

Which number brings to mind the stripes on an American flag, the people at the Last Supper, and the days of the Cuban Missile Crisis?
Crisis in Ukraine: Beginning of Cold War II? As some philosopher has aptly said, ‘the more things change, the more they remain same’. This aphorism could not have been highly correct in the present crisis brewing in Ukraine. The verbal spat between US-led West and Russia reminds senior observers of international politics of the days of Cuban Missile Crisis, 1962 when President of USA Mr. Kennedy and the head of the USSR, Mr. Nikita Krushvev had exchanged hot words on a day-to-day basis. Similar is the case today in Ukraine where President of USA Mr. Obama and President of Russia Mr. Putin are engaged in a war of words. Obama has warned Putin of dire consequences if Russia does not back off in Ukraine. The US secretary of state Mr. John Kerry bluntly warned Russia on Sunday that it risked losing its seat among the prestigious Group of Eight [G 8] nations, as well as economic turmoil if it fails to pull its forces out of Crimea, an autonomous region within Ukraine. As if this was not enough, the NATO ch ...

One of my earliest memories was watching the telly as a toddler and seeing the Berlin Wall being torn down. Of course, being four years old, I was more interested in where my next snacky cake would come from than contemplating the long term results that would play out after the fall of Communism. But it did make spectacular viewing, and that's exactly what television today lacks; spectacle. There aren't any more moon landings. There aren't any more Cold Wars. The President is blander than Tetley tea, and the hip hop MCs don't even shoot each other anymore. They just make the occasional snide remark and urinate on their girlfriends. So what can we do to make life more interesting? Well personally, I recommend a low level nuclear war. A great big mushroom cloud over one of the world's best known cities might be just what we need to give this generation a sense of identity, and we'd finally be able to talk back to our grandparents when they brag about how they spent the entire Cuban Missile Crisis in a fallo ...
Thinking about the National Anthem versus America the Beautiful versus commercials, my thoughts wander from Stephanie Chenault's page to a certain creepiness of my own. When I hear the phrases "the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air", I'm not thinking of Congreve rockets and black powder airbursts. It lifts my spirits slightly to use the British expression, "bucket of instant sunshine", and then go back under my desk in honor of the Cuban Missile Crisis. The Cuban Crisis was bad enough in 1962, when the general public -- *** the United States intelligence community -- didn't know how close things got. AFAIK, we had no clue that the Soviet commander on the island had tactical nuclear weapons and release authority against an invasion.
David Norris: "What ever happened to Free Will?" Thompson: "We actually tried Free Will before. After taking you from hunting and gathering to the height of the Roman Empire we stepped back to see how you'd do on your own. You gave us the Dark Ages for five centuries... until finally we decided we should come back in. The Chairman thought maybe we just needed to do a better job of teaching you how to ride a bike before taking the training wheels off again. So we gave you the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, the Scientific Revolution. For six hundred years we taught you to control your impulses with reason, then in 1910 we stepped back. Within fifty years, you'd brought us World War I, the Depression, Fascism, the Holocaust and capped it off by bringing the entire planet to the brink of destruction in the Cuban Missile Crisis. At that point a decision was taken to step back in again before you did something that even we couldn't fix. You don't have free will, David. You have the appearance of free will." [3 ...
With so much news making headlines in today's world, we can see why an event like the Cuban Missile Crisis is still relevant.
"It's like the Cuban Missile Crisis", former WWE star Cliff "Domino" Compton said about the WWE-CM Punk situation during a PWInsider Elite audio last week. So, perhaps it's fitting that WWE has begun to silently remove CM Punk from packages and graphics within their programming. Punk was removed from the WWE open that is seen at the start of every WWE broadcast, replaced with an old masked shot of Kane. Punk was also removed from a Raw graphic on the WWE App over the course of yesterday. Perhaps most telling, a clip of Punk talking about Paul Heyman was removed from a preview package of the WWE Network's WWE Countdown series. To date, WWE has not publicly responded to requests for comments on Punk's current WWE status. Punk is still listed on the company roster.

Maybe it's just me but does anyone else sense a Hitchcock quality with some of Stephen King's short stories, in particular, 'The Ledge', 'The Man Who Loves Flowers' etc. I really liked The Man Who Loves Flowers, the twist at the end, i honestly didn't see that coming.. AT ALL! it kinda took on a 'Frenzy' quality (Frenzy of course being one of Hitchcock's later movies set in London), Also the spying, episonage in 11.22.63..I know a Hitchcock movie was made about the Cuban Missile Crisis, i could be wrong but if my memory serves me correctly, i think it's called Topaz? haven't watched it in ages :)

Its the history..Life of my Hero... None other than Fidel Castro Cuban dictator Fidel Castro was born near Birán, Cuba, on August 13, 1926. In 1959, Castro used guerilla warfare to successfully overthrow Cuban leader Batista, and was sworn in as prime minister of Cuba. As Cuban prime minister, Castro's government established covert military and economic relations with the Soviet Union, leading to the Cuban Missile Crisis. He served as prime minister until 1976, when he became president of Cuba. Early Life:- Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz was born on August 13, 1926 (though some say he was born a year later), near Birán, in Cuba's eastern Oriente Province. Fidel Castro was the third of six children, including his two brothers, Raul and Ramon; and three sisters, Angelita, Emma and Augustina. His father, Angel, was a wealthy sugar plantation owner originally from Spain. His mother, Lina Ruz Gonzalez, had been a maid to Angel's first wife, Maria Luisa Argota, at the time of Fidel's birth. By the time Fidel was ...
The brand new Dade County Civil Defense Emergency Operations Center on Galloway Road. Modern and State of the Art (for 1960, that is). The South Miami Amateur Radio Club held its monthly meetings there, and we were all enrolled as radio operators for Civil Defense, with official ID cards, etc. Seems almost laughable nowadays, but this was when the USA and USSR had literally thousands of nuclear tipped ICBMs aimed at each other, and we were conducting air raid drills in the schools. In just two years, the Cuban Missile Crisis would bring us literally to the brink of World War III, and there were nuclear missile bases in the Everglades. It was long ago replaced by the current Miami-Dade EOC farther north, and looks tiny and hopelessly primitive in comparison, but the building is still there, and in use. But I don't know who is using it now...

'Guantanamera': Pete Seeger's Latin Legacy By Judy Cantor-Navas | January 28, 2014 8:58 PM EST 'Guantanamera': Pete Seeger's Latin Legacy Pete Seeger aboard the Clearwater "There's no sense in me singing it all by myself. Let me teach it to you. Even if you never sang a note of Spanish, you can get those two words…" Pete Seeger's version of the Cuban song "Guantanamera" was released on his album "We Shall Overcome," recorded live at Carnegie Hall in 1963, in the year after the Cuban Missile Crisis. Seeger later urged American audiences to "to sing "Guantanamera" in the original Spanish and not in translation "to hasten the day" that "the U.S.A. . . .is some sort of bilingual country." The prescient and passionate folk singer, who died Monday (Jan. 27) at age 94, was also a crossover pioneer. "Guajira Guantanamera" started in 1932 as an ode to a hot and haughty girl written by Cuban singer/songwriter Joseíto Fernandez. The song would became a patriotic Cuban anthem after Julián Orbón adapted stanzas f ...
You never what you'll find on the net. From a humorous forum about conspiracy theories: "In his second term in 1966 JFK caused WW3 in an event similar to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Lee Harvey Oswald was an agent from a future post-apocalyptic world sent back in time to keep that from happening." "Actually, it was JFK himself that went back in time and became the second gunman. That's why they couldn't find him, as he had disappeared due to the resulting paradox."

It's a headsnapper to think what the world would have been like if I had been born twenty years earlier and I could have furnished Black Tiger Coffee to JFK for him to drink during all those tense and delicate moments of the Cuban Missile Crisis...
ODing on Superbowl hype! It's a football game, not the Cuban Missile Crisis.
It's a good thing I am old. If Cruz and all those those right winged numbknuckers had been around during the Cuban Missile Crisis, I certainly wouldn't be here as most of our country, as well as a good chunk of the world would still be a nuclear wasteland. Talk about a pucker factor. It scared the crap out all of us every time we flew a mission around Cuba. We thought the end was near. And, the truth was, it was near! I like that little guy from Florida by the name of Rubio. I call him the 'Wittle Kuban with the Big Mouth that nothing comes out of but the word NO. He'd be better off in Cuba where he belongs. He *** as a senator and Cruz worse than him. For some grandiose reason, they hate this country. The Tea Cuppers mirror the terrible drought facing California. They are rapidly drying up.
Fear Doesn’t Have to Control You BY DOROTHY GRECO As far back as I have memory, I remember being afraid. Some of this probably came from the fact that I grew up in an era of uncertainty and fear. The assassinations of the Kennedys and Martin Luther King, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Cold War, and the Vietnam War all contributed. My parents, like many other Americans at that time, were convinced that it wasn’t a question of if disaster would strike, but when. Regardless of when or where you grew up, you can probably remember being afraid, whether of small things like spiders and the dark or larger, intangible things like death and eternity. As we grow up, our fears may change focus, but they don’t always subside. We can laugh at “scary” movies, but the thought of ending up alone or failing to find the job we truly love terrifies us. By the time I reached my twenties, I assumed that fearfulness was as much a part of my DNA as my dimples and brown hair. But as I read Scripture, that logic repeated ...
As I enter the third biggest political party here in Australia tomorrow which is the most left political party left here in Australia, I'm currently re-watching some political stuff on youtube from the Cuban Missile Crisis and how people still feel about Venezuela and Cuba and Fidel Castro and former president Hugo Chavez today and I'm reminded of the Government that is currently in power here today, our Prime Minister wants to silence the last independent Media on tv The ABC and SBS who openly criticise him and he also wants to lower the minimum wage and also he has a poor record on human rights so far to do with Indonesia and poor people, it reminds me of Cuba & Venezuela, Australia is not a dictatorship or a evil regime, this Government does not speak for the majority of Australians and it certainly does not speak for me! I want prosperity and jobs and and equality for everyone. It's that simple.! :)
Attempting to take a shower and actually get clean, wash your hair and shave with two babies at home is akin to managing the fallout of the Cuban Missile Crisis. I'm toast!
Minister of Interior for Cuban Missile Crisis in LSEMUN anyone? I pulled out because of a project deadline and sent them an e-mail but they've still offered me this position anyway... £25, 15th - 17th Feb, anyone fancy a try?
This is just like the Cuban Missile Crisis, President Kennedy stopped the Nukes then. I wonder how President Obama will deal with it? Seal Team 6 anyone?
Just been informed that I now live in a world where Jim Davidson has won Big Brother. Never ever been so scared for the future of my kids since the Cuban Missile Crisis! Lunacy!
Kind of fitting I only watched the last five minutes of the State of the Union, then went to watching X-Men: First Class. No political overtones to this status. It's just that the scene where JFK was on TV in the movie was a few minutes ago (Cuban Missile Crisis footage). With all the things in the world, there were times when things weren't allowed and things we weren't used to dealing with. Sometimes, a reminder is needed of how good things are now. Such as Jennifer Lawrence being Mystique ;)
Dear friends and brethren, I contemplate the Cold War between the United States of America and the Warsaw Pact Countries sitting on another continent. I first became aware of this foe during the Cuban Missile Crisis, when this world nearly went to war at a nuclear level. I do not know if it was staged or not as things today are staged and portrayed to the American People as being "just", as these previous wars have shown on every level to be unjust from the beginning. When stationed at Spangdahlem Air Base in Germany, I was assigned the extra duty of Medical Decontamination Team Chief. Should war occur, and battle field injuries come our way, whether of bullet, bomb, or chemical agent, it was the responsibility of the Decon Team to make sure that person was not contaminated, but if found to be, remove every bit off that casualty before they could be taken to the Triage area. Now that I look back, I remember one important conclusion. We would be in serious, if not deadly trouble. Firstly. We would be hit w ...
Tonight... where President Obama ranks from 1900-present. Worst to best. WORST Worst - Warren Harding - Did nothing. Not inspirational. Died leaving us with scandals and worst yet, Calvin Coolidge. F. Calvin Coolidge - Also did nothing. Said nothing. Let Hoover do all of the work. Created bubble leading to depression. Silent Cal was not much more effective than a potted plant. Taft - Pale imitations of the great T Rex. Hated Presidency. Remember anything great that he did? That's because he didn't do anything. Hoover - Icy, cold. Great career pre-president. Had no ability to lead in times of trouble. Failed his greatest test. At least he's from Iowa. NEAR WORST LBJ - Ok many of you know that I am obsessed with LBJ through reading Caro bio's. Classifying LBJ's hard. He did many great things (civil rights, medicare, NPR, highway beautification), but he has blood on his hands. He must take responsibility for Vietnam. It's mostly his fault. (and if had been in power in Cuban Missile Crisis, w ...
From Soviet Forces Cuba to Division Cuba As long as were on the topic of the Mexican Invasion of ’98, we might want to take a poke at the so-called Division Cuba- the ad hoc military formation made up of Soviet and east-bloc personnel stationed in Cuba when war breaks out between NATO and the Warsaw Pact in ’96. According to canon, these guys seem to be the spearhead of the Mexican 4th Army’s invasion of Texas. They seem to perform pretty well, even holding off the US 49th Armored Division during the 5th Army’s attempt to retake Texas in ’99. So who are these guys? And how many were there to start with before they are whittled down the San Antonio cantonment of 3,000 men, 15 tanks, and a handful of fuel-starved Hind-D helicopters? Back during the Cuban Missile Crisis of ’62, the Soviets has something like 40,000 combat troops in Cuba (the CIA’s estimate at the time was 10,000 and didn’t know the Soviets had deployed short range nuclear artillery to the island. Oops.). Later in 1979 there s ...
This gives me a chance to remind everyone that Dana Perino didn't know what the Cuban Missile Crisis was when she was Press Secretary.
I believe, John F. Kennedy said this (and... I am almost certain Robert Frost was behind it speaking through the leader of a Nation in Crisis...the Cuban Missile Crisis...everyone was at home selling tuple ware ...and watching their kids out in the play ground...just like today...when men inside the Whitehouse...felt to be on the brink of absolute extinction...I know...and yes, I do know...God is God and God is sovereign...enough! I really am tired to the bones at people inability to rise up and meet the day!! "...you know...there is something immoral about abandoning your own judgment..."
ODDITIES OF HISTORY Think of this: January 13, 2014 -- In Cuba, Fidel Castro still lives. He came to power when Dwight Eisenhower was President. He was instrumental in nearly ending the world during the Cuban missile crisis of 1962. And as we marked the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy's death, Castrol -- Kennedy's nemesis -- is till alive. I do NOT say this in any form of praise of Castro. But as a student of history... there are times when there are quirks... and Castro's chapter on the world stage ended, for the most part, in October of 1962, when the Cuban Missile Crisis ended. It is odd therefore, to think... that one who came to power during Ike's administration, and shook the world during the Kennedy administration... still lives. A living historic relic of the past.
Our friends at The World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh are gearing up for their annual Academic World Quest competition. Here's the first practice question. Know the answer? Who was the leader of the Soviet Union (USSR) at the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962? A. Leonid Brezhnev B. Nikita Khrushchev C. Yuri Andropov D. Konstantin Chernenko

The FBI allegedly didn’t need the information and probably really didn’t because the whole department seems to have been at the scene of the assassination before it happened. As a result the FBI incurred the suspicion of having done the dastardly deed, or of having known about it well in advance. One wonders why the KGB would investigate the JFK assassination. The world had just gone through an extremely tense time with the Cuban Missile Crisis. The emotional atmosphere at that time of the Cuban Missile Crises was so “thick and heavy” one could have “cut it with a knife”. Those who experienced it know how heavy the situation felt. The R ...

Reposting from Eric & Celina Ott: LtCol Robert “Bob” Ott 1937-2013 Our loved one was brought back to heaven on Christmas morning. Bob was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, attended Elder High School, and graduated from Ohio State with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering at the age of 19. He joined the Navy to become an aviator. While in flight school, transferred into the Marine Corps and graduated a Second Lieutenant and aviator in 1958; not yet 21 years old. He served 26 years in the Marine Corps and amassed over 4000 flight-hours in the H-34s, CH-46s, A-4s and F-4s. He was a squadron commanding officer and served in Naval Intelligence while in Washington, D.C. He earned the Bronze Star with Valor, 9- Air Medals along with many other distinguished awards. He served 3 tours in Vietnam with over 100 combat missions, and as a young Lt. was on the 1-hour alert to invade Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Once while serving as the Officer of the Deck aboard the USS Okinawa he issued the order " Pr ...
Welcome to Action Adventure James Bond 007 Movie Fans. James Bond films are the most successful movie franchise in the history of film. Most of us do not analyze the films. We only know that we like them. Thanks to Nick, Bruce, Glenn, Kenny and Gary who convinced me to go see the film "Dr. No" in October of 1962 just a few days before the Cuban Missile Crisis at the Royal Theatre. We were 13 years old. I wanted to see the monster movie at the Majestic around the corner. But when I saw the marquee with still shots of 007 Sean Connery and Ursula Andress, I had to see what all the fuss was about. Thanks men. We are all still fans today, 51 years later.
Hardest thing ever - loss of a parent. Dad's obituary. Harry A. "Sonny" Hing, 70, of Gloversville, N.Y., passed away peacefully at his residence in New Port Richey, Fla., on Saturday December 14, 2013, surrounded by his loving children. He was born November 20, 1943 in Gloversville, N.Y., the son of the late Rhoda Whitman and Harry Yea Hing. He graduated from Gloversville High School in 1960 and served honorably in the United States Air Force from 1960 - 1964 during the Korean War Conflict, Vietnam War and the Cuban Missile Crisis. Mr. Hing worked for 31 years as Plant Manager for Keymark Corp. (1967-1998) His constitution and vitality for life had a resilience all it's own! He pursued his passion for golf regularly and for 33 years was an original member of the Bush Golf League 1980-2013. Thursdays were spent happily with his best friends. For 33 years he was a member of the Four Mondays Bowling League at Perry Lanes. His retirement was enjoyed spending precious time with his "Munchkins" Ellery & J ...
Nikita Khrushchev is a widely reviled figure. In his defense, it can be said that during his period, the Soviet Union did, by threats, dissuade the US from sending the Marines into Cuba. I believe that was an incredibly positive act. What is possibly less known is that there were real tensions between the USSR and Cuba at the time, with Cuba apparently disagreeing with the relatively conciliatory Soviet policy toward the United States. This series of letters back and forth between Khrushchev and Fidel during the Cuban Missile Crisis, though very carefully worded, do a good job of illustrating that tension in my opinion.
The wussification of America continues. A 6 year old was put out of school with a sexual harassment charge. He kissed a little girl on the hand. Geez my friends and I would be just getting out of jail for our childish behavior in grammar school. and trust me we didn't do anything bad. This left wing Minority PC agenda is destroying our country. This because a rule from the top came down to put a stop to sexual harassment in school. Even Grammar School. Really, a 6 year old knows about sexual harassment. Give Me a Brake. This administration is causing more stress on its people than the friggin Cold War and the Cuban Missile Crisis. Stop worrying about the kids *** Worry about the Christian Abedini held in Iran. Get his *** out of jail. You compromise for Iran's nuclear program and do not ask for this man back. You are a dismal failure. You have failed this country to a degree I have never seen since the Assassination of President Kennedy.

Can you recommend any books about the Cuban Missile Crisis? (I'm on sabbatical from the Third Reich.)
Turning between channels because I can only stomach a tiny amount of the deification of JFK that's going on today.the MOST important thing I've learned about the Camelot years you ask? In the 1960's videos of JFK and Castro during the Cuban Missile Crisis, Fidel looks almost exactly like Liam Neeson.
President Kennedy has died...” those were the immortal words heard spoken by Walter Cronkite. I was sitting in my High School Gym with the entire student body when those words were spoken. Did we, as High School Students realize then that an assassin had cut short "Camelot," as the 1,000 days of the Kennedy presidency came to be known? President Kennedy was only 46 when he died. Did we realize the significance of just a year before when we were in the middle of the Cuban Missile Crisis which brought the world to the brink of nuclear disaster. What about the civil rights movement had gathered momentum and living in Grantsville, Utah at the time, I remember when a black Army Sargent from Tooele Army Depot was waiting for a bus in front of Halladay’s “Blue Bird” store. Almost the entire town had to drive by to see him. Did we realize that President McKay of the LDS church had closed the swimming pool at the Deseret Gym to “colored military personnel” while allowing white military to use th ...
"President Proclaims JFK Day of Remembrance" WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, 2013 – President Barack Obama today called on Americans to honor the memory of President John F. Kennedy and to celebrate Kennedy’s “enduring impact on American history.” Obama’s proclamation also directed that the American flag be flown at half-staff today in honor of Kennedy’s memory. The President’s proclamation reads as follows: A half century ago, America mourned the loss of an extraordinary public servant. With broad vision and soaring but sober idealism, President John F. Kennedy had called a generation to service and summoned a Nation to greatness. Today, we honor his memory and celebrate his enduring imprint on American history. In his 3 years as President of the United States, John F. Kennedy weathered some of the most perilous tests of the Cold War and led America to the cusp of a bright new age. His leadership through the Cuban Missile Crisis remains the standard for American diplomacy at its finest. In a divided B ...

JFK 50 years Later "Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country" Yawn. JFK was a phony. He didn't even write this line himself. Sorry to bust the red, white and blue balloons. You want your daughter to be married to a guy like JFK? If he was not shot his legacy would be more like Clinton's than Abe Lincoln's. We like Slick Willy. But c'mon, bro. All the world tours with Bono ain't gonna prop you up. Your legacy is the guy that jammed a cigar in Monica's muffin in the Oval Office. Television was new and JFK was a young good looking Navy guy from a zillionaire family with a big name and his wife was hot too. But all the wonderful parts of life in Camelot couldn't prop up the truth of his presidency.

Today is the anniversary of what I believe to be the single most important day in my life outside of my family specials. You cannot compete with a marriage or a birth of a child, November 22nd, but you are right up there in my timeline. November 22nd, 1963, with all due respect to Richie Valens, was the day the Music Died. Before that date, life was filled with hope for the future. There seemed to be no limit on the promise of America. There was even the hint of a lasting peace after the Cuban Missile Crisis the previous year. There was a sense that America was on the right path, we were at least attempting for the first time to bring equality to all people in this country so that the “brand” of this country would actually reflect its product. We were on our way to putting a man on the moon, “not because it was easy, but because it was hard”. We were dealing with our enemies to bring an end to the creation of nuclear weapons, because Man was proving that he possessed the power to undue the ...
Most Americans know tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy. Yet most people don't know John Kennedy had a 95% chance of getting killed in PT boats in WWII; yet he knowingly volunteered anyway AFTER he was classified as 4F. The Navy rejected him & he used his father's influence (and friendship with Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal) to put him INTO harms way vs. the other way around. Most people don't know he created the Peace Corps AND the Green Berets, that tried hard to get Castro (some believe Castro got him first) and faced down the Soviets during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He teed off the Soviets by challenging their system indirectly via a race to space; a race indirectly designed to bankrupt their system, a strategy finalized successfully by Ronald Reagan 25 years later. Most don't know he donated almost his entire presidential salary to charity, namely the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America. His bold leadership on civil rights 50 years ago made it possi ...
As P5+1 negotiations renewed in Geneva, November 20, 2013, seeking a possible interim agreement to temporarily freeze Iranian nuclear enrichment, a renewed concern has arisen about the threat to the US of long range ICBMs being developed by the Islamic Regime. Alleged development of Iranian rocket bases in Venezuela on the Paraguaná peninsula by construction companies controlled by Iranian Revolutionary Guards was reported in 2011 by Die Welt and the Jerusalem Post from Western security sources. These were disputed by both Venezuela and the US, according to a subsequent CNN report. Nonetheless, that apocalyptic prospect concerns me as both a Floridian and a US Army veteran who experienced the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. Two separate events in recent days eerily brought home that possibility. One was an interview with Israeli spokesperson for PM Netanyahu during a Jake Tapper interview on CNN. The other was the response to questions about Iranian Missiles I posed to Israeli Brig. Gen. (r ...

Countdown to 11/22/13 Day 5: So who did it? Nine Suspects I swear to you, I'm trying to keep these short. If you read, "Not In Your Lifetime," you'll get all the puzzle pieces, but not the finished picture. To finish the puzzle you have to answer five questions: 1. Who had the motive? 2. Who had the opportunity? 3. Who had the means? 4. Who would gain from JFK's death, rather than waiting for an election? 5. Who could cover it up? The Warren Commission only addressed opportunity and means, and even then, only for one man. 1. Lee Harvey Oswald Motive: Oswald had no motive. The Warren Commission (WC) said he was a disaffected Communist. He Killed JFK, because JFK tried to invade/kill Castro and threatened the Soviet Union during the Cuban Missile Crisis. These conclusions were based Oswald’s radio and TV appearances in New Orleans. Both were shams, Oswald was acting as an agent of one of the U.S. Intelligence agencies at the time, most likely the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI). His Communist "legend" ...
Saw 2 interesting documentaries over the weekend on the 50 years since the JFK Assassination. One made a very compelling case that the fatal bullet on Dealey Plaza came not from Oswald but instead from a Secret Service gun in the limousine behind Kennedy. The other was concerned with the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. My father always told me how close we were to Armageddon but this documentary showed how it should have happened but somehow didn't - probably due to some amazing diplomacy from the White House and Kremlin at the 11th hour.

Just finished reading "Killing Kennedy" by Bill O'Reilly & Martin Dugard. With the 50th anniversary of JFK's murder in Dallas, this was a particular timely read. I couldn't put the book down. Forget the conspiracy theories -- O'Reilly leaves that to others. But the detailed insights into the main players in this story (for example, did you know Jackie was a chain smoker?) gleaned from interviews and many first-hand accounts makes this read meaningful. I couldn't put it down. Much is discussed in this book -- the Bay of Pigs, the Berlin Wall, Cuban Missile Crisis, the earliest days of Vietnam, the Kennedy connection to the Mafia through Frank Sinatra, JFK's thirst for women, insights into Lee Harvey Oswald and his wife Marina, Bobby Kennedy, J. Edgar Hoover and more. Interestingly, several years ago I worked in Dallas from an office in the federal building on the opposite side of Dealey Plaza. My office window faced the former School Book Depository and the train I rode every day passed behind the "Grassy ...

Good morning, good morning, the best to you this morning! Another beautiful day we'll spend in OLIVIA! I sure hope you can make it out today! We don't have rings, but we've got everything else, and only 3 days left for you to try something out of the ordinary. Have you tried everything, or are you a plain with ketchup only? I will tell you, that I have limited supplies of Mac & Cheese Bites, and Jalapeno Cheddar Spudz, so please don't be disappointed if we run out before you get yours. It's that time of the year where I try to deplete my inventory. I don't want to spend all winter eating what is leftover from my truck, when I've eaten it every day and night for 8 months! It's good, but I prefer cooking a variety of dishes in my own home kitchen! Today's history lessen is more current than I typically choose. I felt the Cuban Missile Crisis was appropriate because this year will be the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination, and it was Kennedy who played the best hand during this game of poker ...

Out Of The Box 1962-1968 These were the years when monsters came out of the box and Halloween was plastic, paint and glue I finally learned what tax meant why things came with instructions and there were others like me who didn’t gravitate toward the subjects we were taught in school They say it was the Red Threat or the Cuban Missile Crisis that gave monsters their foothold in the psyche of youth but I always liked the magic and the mystery of Autumn and the fun of dressing up as one of my monsters never does get old So bye bye Richard Speck and so long Charles Manson we had horrors enough in Washington The monsters I grew up with were much better companions and kept me for Halloween where all the frightening of Stahlgona Manor is the best for making fun 8/14/12 © Copyright 2012 by Peter J.

Feeling down here at home today - missing my Dad. I'm uploading my eulogy given on Tuesday: Eulogy for my Father, James “Jim” Joseph McMullen, Sr. 2013 “Dad was my friend – all my adult life we developed and maintained that. He told us his children that he loved us, and he received our love in return, even though he was as proud, tough and stubborn an Irishman as ever walked. A true Hibernian, Jim McMullen, Sr. was a poet and a lover of music, especially listening to Irish tenors, playing his harmonica and his self-made “boom-ba” (a “one- man band” percussion instrument). Yes, there was more than a wee bit of the tinker in Dad as well. He had a mischievous sense of humor – and what a story teller! I loved to hear about his days here at St. Ann’s school, at Gilmore Academy, Notre Dame, and, especially, in the Army. His accounts of driving tanks to South Florida during the Cuban Missile Crisis have always fascinated me. He was also a sailor and a sportsman who loved the outdoors. Yes he ...
Had a fantastic day today down at UH, with the display the Heritage Team laid on for the "Restore" Company promotional event. Myself and Chris, took 50 people of a tour of the base in a London Transport Routemaster Bus, and ending up at the Battle Command Bunker, then back to "Restore" for some talks, with some fantastic food laid on for lunch. All set in the old 55th Squadron's Operations HQ. We had set up our display of Cold War artifacts from Upper Heyford's history, along with my collection of US Civil Defense items from the Cuban Missile Crisis. 51 years ago to the day, (Black Saturday) 27 October 1962. which was rather poigniant in some ways. We also found another building we had yet to explore.

Well, if my God lets me wake up in the morning after 06:00 Central Standard Time, I will have survived the Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, the Cold War, Reaganomics, the 80's and 90's, a Millennium change, an unbelievable Middle East plethora of conflicts, multiple attacks on our soil with OKC and 9-11 spearheading, and God knows I have missed massive peripheral chess pieces . . . 50 FULL YEARS ! HOW ? I have bucked the trends, resisted popular convention, held true to my core beliefs, and am totally amazed at how CLUELESS the general populace is . . . Thank You . . . Without your guidance and core focus I would have never made it.
So today the U.S. and Russia negotiated a weapons surrender to end the Cuban Missile Crisis, the U.S. surrendered to Vietnam, and the entire Non-Aligned Movement joined the Warsaw Pact. But in all, a wildly successful and fun role-playing game. I can't wait to play again.

Royal Air Force Station Coleby Grange or more simply RAF Coleby Grange was a Royal Air Force station situated alongside the western edge of the A15 on open heathland between the villages of Coleby and Nocton Heath and lying 7.4 mi (11.9 km) due south of the county town Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England. Opened in 1939 and operated as a fighter and night fighter base during World War II, occupied at various times by UK, US, Canadian and Polish fighter squadrons, the station briefly switched to a training role post-war before being placed on a care and maintenance basis. Reopened in 1959 as an RAF Bomber Command Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM) launch facility and placed on a high DEFCON 2 launch alert during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the station was finally closed and decommissioned in 1963. The site has been returned to agricultural use and now has little evidence of its former use, other than several lengths of perimeter track and the original air traffic control tower
5 things to know after seeing new 'X-Men' When Stan Lee originally came up with the X-men, he made them mutants specifically so he wouldn't have to come up with individual origin stories beyond "They were born that way." Hollywood, which never takes for granted that audiences will just accept such things, has given us a prequel anyway, set during the Cuban Missile Crisis. This is all despite Bryan Singer's first "X-Men" feature being pretty clear on most of the basics And like so many superhero movies these days, it's loaded with enough characters, backstory and plot that you may need some notes at first. So here are a couple of pointers before you head into theaters this weekend to see the biggest mutant-starring movie of the summer. 1. Charles Xavier Really Is the Absent-Minded Professor: In the first "X-Men" movie, Professor X, then played by Patrick Stewart, claimed to have met arch-nemesis Magneto at age 17 and built the mutant-seeking device Cerebro with him. He also expresses surprise that his frie ...
I can't see without remembering that time she was White House Press Secretary and didn't know what the Cuban Missile Crisis was.
I am copying and pasting this from another group I a member of. Please pay attention everyone. SpaceShuttle Doorgunner Rick Anthony Mike Angelo As well as most of you know I’m always harking on history. History tells us a lot and we can learn from the past! But as you all know, history has a way of repeating itself, whether good or bad! In the year of 1979, I had the opportunity to be stationed at Guantanamo Bay Cuba for one year. The base was completely closed off from the country of Cuba, and the relations at the time were non-existent, with both sides feeling some hostilities, even long after the “Cuban Missile Crisis!” To my surprise the front gate at the base was still open as we were still allowing Cuban workers on the base as it was agreed upon in the contract we had with Cuba. These workers would continue to work on the base until they; quit, got fired, or died! Now back in 1955, the year I was born, Cuba seem to be making the headlines back then on a regular basis, of course go back in his ...
Scott, James Earl, 69, died Monday June 24, 2013 at home on Liberty Road. Jimmy was born June 11, 1944 to Hazel Scott, delivered by his grandmother Audrey Hart in Harlan County at Blackstar Coal Camp. His parents Hazel and Charlie Scott moved to Liberty Rd when Jimmy was 5. He attended Kenwick then Bryan Station High School and maintained many lasting friendships from those days. Jim is not one who is easily forgotten. He joined the Navy at a young age and served in the Bay of Pigs during the Cuban Missile Crisis. During that time he and wife Jo Ellen, had two children, James Earl Scott, Jr. and Kim Ann Scott-Hopkins. Never one to play strictly by the rules, Jimmy granted himself military “leave” to visit his growing family. His rebellious and spirited attitude made for an extremely colorful life. Jimmy’s quick wit and generosity gave him countless friends from all walks of life. He is survived by his sisters Elizabeth Ann (Libby) Money, Debra Roberts, a brother Tommy Scott. His two child ...

Sermon: The Father’s Voice Preached at First Presbyterian Church of Albion Father’s Day, June 16th Rev. Charlotte Ellison, M. Div. Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I think about change a lot. Our world is nothing BUT change. My grandfather’s life straddled life on the farm and life in the modern world. Railroads and telegraphs, and manufacturing were flexing their muscles when he was a boy. He died shortly after we walked on the moon. He was a visionary guy who loved every lick of it, riding the crest of a wave called “Progress”. He thought it would deliver us to a new and better shore of human existence. His optimism was hardly dimmed by the War to End All Wars. The Second World War didn’t challenge his hopefulness. Even fifty years ago, when the Cold War offered the extreme evidence to raise doubt about human “progress”, as the US and the USSR stood on the brink of nuclear holocaust over the Cuban Missile Crisis, he continued to believe that things would only get better wit ...
I hope the Yankees sign a Cuban player so John Sterling can incorporate Cuban Missile Crisis into his home run call.
This is the same bimbo who did not know what the Cuban Missile Crisis was. The level of stupidity in government is appalling.
WHY JFK WAS MURDERED: "Kennedy, he posits, began as a Cold Warrior committed to Pax Americana secured through superior nuclear military might. But the near cataclysmic disaster of the Cuban Missile Crisis and the isolation Kennedy experienced from his own military advisers forced him to reach out for help both publicly and in secret back-channel memos to his greatest enemy: Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. Kennedy had what some leaders might call a conversion. He turned toward peace. When the enemy is seen as human, everything changes. This conversion locked Kennedy into a death spiral with the military industrial complex and the CIA. They now considered JFK a traitor because he reached out to Khrushchev in peace, and because the CIA and the military industrial complex were fanatically committed to what General Curtis E. LeMay described as, “Pax Atomica,” the annihilation of America’s enemies through nuclear war. Kennedy showcased his new vision in June 1963 during a speech at American University in ...
