After the fall of the Soviet Union, Cuba and the US had to deal with the “two wars for independence”. The first war was a civil war while the second was a nationalist war. Both had been declared by the United States government and was meant to be between the Cuban people and the Cuban revolutionary movement. The two wars were fought by the Cuban people fighting against the Cuban Revolution and Cuban revolutionary forces fighting against the Cuban people.
Because the two wars were declared by the same government, it’s really difficult to know what effect they had. The Cuban people were fighting to restore their independence and the Cuban revolutionary movement was fighting to restore their independence, so it’s not clear to me what their results would have been. They were both quite intense, so it’s possible that they had very different effects.
I think the Cuban Revolution was a good thing in that it ended the government’s power and allowed Cuba to regain its sovereignty. The Cuban revolutionary movement was also a very bad thing because it brought the country into conflict with the U.S.
Cuba was also a member of the Central American Treaty Organization (CATO) and it was at that time that the U.S. started sending military supplies to Cuba. The U.S. also started sending arms and assistance to the Cuba guerrillas who were fighting the Soviet Union. That could have happened with or without the Cuban Revolution because both sides were fighting for their independence.
In America, the U.S. government was pretty happy to see Cuba’s independence because it meant that they could get more weapons and aid from the U.S. In Cuba however, the U.S. government was not as happy for the Cubans because Cuba was once a U.S. ally. The U.S. was not happy when Cuba started fighting the Soviet Union. That is a long story for another time. Suffice it to say that the U.S.
was not happy because Cuba now had the ability to start a war on U.S. soil. Cuba was not happy for the U.S. to start taking away their weapons or taking away the aid that the U.S. government gave them.
In the video below, there are images of the aftermath of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Just a week before the Cuban Missile Crisis, U.S. President John F. Kennedy gave a speech where he said that he would never let the Soviets have the means to destroy the U.S. or its citizens. He said that he would “use whatever means necessary” to prevent the Soviets from getting the missiles they needed to launch a nuclear attack on the U.S.
As a matter of fact, Kennedy actually said that he was going to use these missiles to destroy the Soviet Union. The U.S. government tried to get him to change his mind, but the president wouldn’t back down.
The Cuban missile crisis happened about 50 years ago, and President Kennedy actually used the threat of a nuclear strike on the Soviet Union to make the Soviets think twice about launching a nuclear attack on the U.S. He said that they deserved to die for their actions, even if they came at the cost of the lives of thousands of Americans.
Kennedy’s decision to use nuclear weapons in Cuba is only one example in recent history where the U.S. government did exactly what the president in Cuba said they would do. This is another reason why it’s important to create an environment where people can freely express their opinions without fear of retribution.
