wondering if you could help once again
what was P.Kennedys attitude like towards the Soviet Union??

He felt he had been outmanoeuvred at the Vienna summit of 1961.
He felt that, as a newcomer to the post, Khrushchev regarded him as a 'soft touch.
He had been elected on a 'get tough with the commies' ticket.

Due to the Bay of Pigs failing how did this worsen superpower relations??
It really depends how much detail you are required to cover in your course - this is the kind of thing that only your class notes can help you with. However, normally the Bay of Pigs is summarised as:
In April 1961 the CIA encouraged, funded and transported an attempt by anti-Castro Cuban exiles to invade Cuba. It failed miserably, greatly embarrassing Kennedy. In September 1961, therefore, Castro asked for – and Russia publicly promised – weapons to defend Cuba against America.
These are the major impacts - the Bay of Pigs cemented the Cuban relationship with the USSR, who were only too glad to assist. This, in turn, led to the Cuban Missiles Crisis.

i know i have probably asked more then enough questions but am i corrected in saying that in october 1962 American spy planes had spotted nuclear arms on cuba??
and did it make realtions worse between the superpowers because cuba was close to america and america felt threatened also the soviets felt angry because america was spying on them
or am i just wrong ??
