-"I am sure I read somewhere a long time ago that Khrushchev phoned Kennedy after the invasion began and scared him so badly that Kennedy was literally trembling."

-"That is when Kennedy called off the promised air support."

The Soviets did not become involved in Cuba until after the Bay of Pigs invasion. Prior to that, there were no Soviets in Cuba to have caused them to force any issue on the Americans over Cuba.

I have been trying to figure out if there was something I did not understand in your strange post.

I can’t unless you are a Communist yourself. The Soviets were involved in Cuba when Castro was still in the mountains tho they were probably still trying to keep it secret.

It was soviet tanks which broke the invasion. I have wondered if it was actually Soviet pilots flying Castro’s jets but admit I don’t know.
