10. the Cuban missile crisis was a response to a threat
But this is only a response to a potential threat like that posed by Iraq. Thanks for
the book recommendation. I too thought that we were in our last days back then. I remember
people in my neighborhood laughing as they raked leaves that fall. Saying "I never thought
I would have to rake these." Then the fundy angle, where pushing nuclear war brings the
rapture closer. I admit that I am nervous and wish that there was reassurance that wiser
heads will prevail here.
