Wow. NATO, led by the US, no doubt, decided out of a clear blue sky to 
station some missiles in Turkey. No history to that action, of course. 
Just a sudden, impulsive decision by those imperialistic westerners 
against the poor, oppressed Soviet proletariat. No wonder Khrushchev had 
to put missiles 90 miles off our coast. Clearly it was the US' fault. 
Thanks for that informative and impartial analysis.

Less ignorant than before,
