When castro took over cuba, there were lots of U.S. business interests at risk (america controlled all the major industries - sugar, tobacco, mining, etc.) castro offered to buy the companies at face value (he didn't want foriegn interests in latin america anymore since we kinda screwed them over) but the america rejected his offer, so he nationalized the businesses. castro then asked the U.S. for loans to rebuild/modernized, but the u.s. said no, so he turned to the soviets and they said no problem. so that's why castro hated the u.s. and the alliance (if you can call it that) between cuba and the soviet union started!
There were plenty or questions of this by historians , some say it was a test by russia to check on kennedy's strength , to trap usa into a nuclear war but mostly to get an upper hand militarily
but still if it weren't for cuba and use knowing about it castro could of moved to mexico
