        Kennedy's Flexible Response to Communism

        As this video from American Experience: "JFK" reveals, President Kennedy was determined to fight Communism. Although he believed that it was a menace, he did not want to engage the Soviet Union in an all-out confrontation, thus, triggering a “hot war” with nuclear weapons. Instead, he believed that a better strategy was to conquer the spread of Communism by fighting “small wars” wherever it was gaining momentum, from the Congo to Vietnam to Cuba.
