Question #172261

Shortly summarize, did Pres. Kennedy choose the right course of action during the Cuban Missile Crisis? Explain.

Expert's answer

President Kennedy chose the naval blockade of Cuba also known as a quarantine. The president took the decision to quarantine Cuba so that he could find a non passive but also non aggressive remedy to the issue of the Cuban missile crisis. I opine that it was the right decision, since it proved that the US was concerned about the whole issue, but did not want to engage in a direct war. Although the US had a strong navy to engage Cuba, Kennedy believed the decision he had made would place a burden on Khruschchev to decide the next move. The decision was a strong course of action that built and preserved the general public's confidence in government.
