1. What would the US have done if a missile was accidentally launched from Cuba?
2. What would have been a reaction to an intentional launch?
3. What would have the USSR have done if Cuba launched missiles without authorization?
4. Why was the allied occupation of a divided Berlin both necessary and militarily irresponsible?
5. How would the world be different if the US had attacked Cuba without a quarantine?
