GUEST,Dickey BS: Maliki doesn't want more U.S. troops (750* d) RE: BS: Maliki doesn't want more U.S. troops 25 Feb 07

You are truly pathetic, I'm sorry to say. Any sensible American would be glad the missles were removed from Cuba. I modestly claim to be a sensible American. Obviously the missles had to be removed. My only point--which you continue to ignore--is that JFK foolishly and needlessly ran the risk of Khrushchev's turning the deal down--and thereby risked nuclear war-- by his (JFK's) stubborn insistence in refusing to make public the agreement that resulted in the missles being removed from Cuba. That deal was: Jupiter missles in Turkey for missles in Cuba.

And the main reason he did it was to preserve his and RFK's political careers--which would have been seriously injured by "compromising with Communists"--especially after the Bay of Pigs disaster.

And I am still patiently waiting for evidence from you--as opposed to innuendo/slander---(which is obviously your strong suit)-- that my assertion is incorrect

So this is hoe RD answers a yes or no question?

Why all the personal attacks? His anger seems to be taking control.

Frankly I don't give a damn how JFK did it. I am just glad he did it.
