What were the negative consequences of the missile crisis?
One of the effects of the crisis was to terrify the population of the United States and to increase paranoia and help support the willingness of Americans to spend huge amounts of money on defense and to continue the massive arms race with the Soviets.
Cuba stayed communist and highly armed though the Soviet missiles were removed under UN supervision. Both sides considered they had secured a victory - Khrushchev had saved the communist regime in Cuba from invasion by the USA, and had negotiated a deal with the USA on the removal of their Jupiter missiles in Turkey.
