The only respect I have for JFK is for his military service. Mr. Fontava has used facts in his articles that totally destroy the Camnelot illusion. The Russians did not blink in 1962. They got the concessions they wanted from JFK; we removed our nuclear missles fromTurkey and promised we would not allow an invasion of Cuba. The Russians upon learning that Castro and the filthy stinking Che wanted to actrually ised the Cuban missiles scared the Russians to death. They were already working to get the missiles out of Cuba. The Bay of Pigs was almost as bad as the Democratrs pulling all support from South Vietnam after promising to continue to supply them. JFK was a war time hero but a totally crappy presaident.
