c) The Cuban missile crisis was a disaster for the soviets because the USSR. Had to come and get all the missiles back when the war ended. This took a lot of men to do. Having to buy all these missiles that were not used were a great deal and cost a lot of money to the USSR. The USSR had to get the whole of Cuba involved into this fight and because of this Cuba was at risk to go to war with the USA just as much as the USSR were. Cuba had shot down one of USA’s U2-spyplane with shows how little control the USSR had over Cuba. It was not even a general that shot down the u2-spyplane but a simple commander that saw that plane fly above Cuban territory. When the blockade happened there was no way for any of the soviets to get in or out of the island because USA naval ships surrounded it.
The Cuban Missile crisis was not a failure to the USSR because the USSR got the USA to retrieve their missiles that were in turkey. It took The USA six months to get all their missiles out of turkey. This was a great success to the USSR because this means that if the USSR does anything that the USA does not approve the USA will not have and missiles to threaten the USSR with. They will have a lot of time to send a missile first before the USA would have time to react and attack the USA
As a conclusion I think that it was not a failure for the USSR because the got what they want to to they got the USA to take away there missiles form turkey. This is what they want to from the beginning on.
So I do not thing that the Cuban Missile Crisis was a failure to the USSR because they got what the want at the end. If there would have been an attack from Kennedy they would have went into a nuclear war and none of us would have been here today.
