The placement of U.S. Missiles in Turkey.  At least that's the pat answer 
the leftists always give. This answer however, is similar to the one given 
for taking over the countries of eastern Europe--that they needed "buffer 
states" to prevent against western aggression and hides the fact that the 
USSR was an imperialistic country.  The real reason the Soviets put 
missiles in Cuba is that is was part of their "expansionist" policies.
