The U.S. has long accused Tehran of supplying militant groups in Iraq with weapons and training, Wired reported. While the flow of Iranian weapons into Iraq has slowed, Shiite militias have fired Iranian rockets at U.S. troops and Sunni militias reportedly use Iranian bombs to destroy U.S. military vehicles."
Cuban Missile Crisis
The Cuban Missile Crisis was a confrontation between the United States, the Soviet Union, and Cuba in the early 1960s during the Cold War. In Russia, it is termed the "Caribbean Crisis" (Russian: Карибский кризис, Karibskiy krizis), while in Cuba it is called the "October Crisis". The crisis ranks with the Berlin Blockade as one of the major confrontations of the Cold War, and is generally regarded as the moment in which the Cold War came closest to a nuclear war.
The critical crisis phase was preceded by deployment of Jupiter and Thor medium-range ballistic missiles, which was performed by US Air Force at 5 sites near İzmir, Turkey, in 1961. These MRBM were able to carry thermonuclear warheads and had operating ranges up to 1500 miles. This created an important threat to many cities and industrial and military facilities of the Soviet Union, including Moscow.
