The Missiles of October

This is the anniversary of the day in 1962 a U.S. photo reconnaissance plane spotted missile bases under construction in Cuba. That is, the beginning of the "Cuban Missile Crisis".
It was probably one of the hottest battles of the "Cold War".

I've always felt that a crisis involving Cuba was inevitable in the early 60s, considering the way JFK was always going around calling the place "Cuber".
