Castro took out Batista, who was supported by the US (what a fool), then he took over the U.S owned sugar mills and refineries. Then the innocent man pleaded with the USSR for aid, which they accepted. Khruschev then strategically put missile silos in Cuba, but the US spy planes discovered them. They demanded the removal of them, which is not fair, for the US had missiles in turkey! Kruzchev was cornered into backing away, and removing the missiles.
