    ACTUAL DECISION
    We should set an ultimatum- they remove the missiles or we do an air stricke and blow them up ourselves.
    xxxxxKenny issued an ultimatum to Cuba- remove the missiles or the U.S. will attack.
    DAYS 10-12 Thursday, October 25 - Saturday, October 27
    Proceedings are becoming heated at the United Nations. The U.S. openly challenges USSR at the United Nations, without getting a desired response. Tensions remain high between the two countries. The United States military forces are set at DEFCON-2 - the highest in history. Want to see clips of the UN discussion?
    ...
    OUR DECISION AND REASON
    ACTUAL DECISION
    xxxxx
    xxxxx
    We would remove our missiles from Turkey in exchange for Russian missile removal from Cuba because it keeps both sides happy.
    Kennedy accepts the first proposal and acts as if he didn't recieve the second alternative.

    DAY 13 Sunday, October 28
    What is the result of the Cuban Missile Crisis? What impact does the crisis have on the Cold War and the relationship between the US and the USSR?

    EISENHOWER
    notes-feels that if one country in southeast Asia falls to communism then others would follow (domino theory)
    -helps to establish puppet state in South Vietnam and sends military advisors to help in the South
    -Ngo Dinh Diem leads South Vietnam- won't hold free elections because then Ho Chi Minh would take over and make it all communist

    -Gulf of Tonkin- US ship in North Vietnamese waters (within bounaries of North Vietnam), Vietnamese patrol boats come out and US ship fire at the patrol boats. US ship not harmed but patrol boats are 1 sunk 2 crippled
    -Never any confirmation that either ship had been attacked (on second "attack")
    -Gulf of Tonkin Resolution- president can "take all necessary measures" to protect American forces and "prevent further aggression"- A BLANK CHECK!
    -Passes unanimously in the House and only 2 oppose it in the Senate
    -Johnson says "we will seek no wider war"
    -Operation Rolling Thunder- bomb North Vietnam MANY BOMBS!! feb 1965
