Russia's act of war in putting missiles so close to us was justification to capture them and Cuba.
And it should have been done, but JFK was a wimp whose only concern was skirt chasing.
It would have hastened the end of the Cold War, maybe obviated Viet Nam, maybe Berlin, maybe even scared the towel heads from getting uppity.
JFK and his wretched family did incalculable damage to the USA.
Don't get me started on Teddy's open door policy on immigration (especially professionals) that absolutely destroyed the nation and turned it into the multiculti mess it is.
It would have resulted in nuclear war, which it very nearly did anyway. Despite any faults Kennedy had, and however much blame he deserves for contributing to Kruschev's decision, had anyone but Kennedy been President in 1962 we would probably not be here to argue about. You have to give him credit for this one.
