The Missiles of Rocktober

Just in time for October, Michele Bachmann is worried about a new Cuban missile crisis:

“And the question was asked, should we normalize trading with Cuba? Why would you normalize trading with a country that sponsors terror?” Bachmann said. “Cuba — there’s reports that have come out that Cuba has been working with another terrorist organization called Hezbollah. And Hezbollah is potentially looking at wanting to be part of missile sites in Iran.

“And, of course, when you’re 90 miles offshore from Florida, you don’t want to entertain the prospect of hosting bases or sites where Hezbollah could have training camps or perhaps have missile sites or weapons sites in Cuba. This would be foolish.”

Next to the bombing of Cambodia, the Cuban Missile Crisis is probably the worst foreign policy event of the last 50 years for conservatives to bring up because it's pretty much agreed upon that if conservatives had been in charge, we would've ended up in an all out nuclear war with the Soviets. Can you imagine Michele Bachmann or George W. Bush handling the missile crisis? That would've ended one way: BOOM.
