Information Technology and International Relations: Using On Line, Interactive Simulations to Transcend Time, Space, and Attitudes
Unformatted Document Text:  6. How should we prepare for possible Soviet retaliation for any United States moves in Berlin, Turkey or Norway, all areas involved in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization? The Soviet team focused on the following: 1. How can we use this unexpected incident to gain time to operationalize our missiles in Cuba? 2. Should we request the Cuban government to turn over the American pilot as a negotiating ploy to use in our discussions with the United States? 3. Should we request the Cuban government to give us the aircraft debris for examination in order to learn what the Americans might know about our missile deployment as well as to copy the technology? 4. Should we launch a reprisal against American aircraft flying to and from Berlin? 5. Can we bring retaliatory pressure against the Americans elsewhere, such as in Turkey or Norway, both American allies? The Cubans assessed these issues: 1. Is this the opening of the expected United States invasion of Cuba?2. How should our Revolutionary Armed Forces respond?3. How can we encourage our Soviet allies to announce the existence of their missiles in Cuba in order to deter an invasion? 4. Should we release the pilot to our Soviet comrades or hold him ourselves as a mercenary war criminal? 5. Can we use the aircraft debris as an encouragement for the Russians to announce existence of their missiles as deterrence against American attack?

6. How should we prepare for possible Soviet retaliation for any United States moves in
Berlin, Turkey or Norway, all areas involved in the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization?
The Soviet team focused on the following:
1. How can we use this unexpected incident to gain time to operationalize our missiles
in Cuba?
2. Should we request the Cuban government to turn over the American pilot as a
negotiating ploy to use in our discussions with the United States?
3. Should we request the Cuban government to give us the aircraft debris for
examination in order to learn what the Americans might know about our missile
deployment as well as to copy the technology?
4. Should we launch a reprisal against American aircraft flying to and from Berlin?
5. Can we bring retaliatory pressure against the Americans elsewhere, such as in Turkey
or Norway, both American allies?
The Cubans assessed these issues:
1. Is this the opening of the expected United States invasion of Cuba?
2. How should our Revolutionary Armed Forces respond?
3. How can we encourage our Soviet allies to announce the existence of their missiles
in Cuba in order to deter an invasion?
4. Should we release the pilot to our Soviet comrades or hold him ourselves as a
mercenary war criminal?
5. Can we use the aircraft debris as an encouragement for the Russians to announce
existence of their missiles as deterrence against American attack?
After completing their deliberation, the advisory group prepares a memorandum for the
head of state and transmits it via email or the website no later than 2 hours after the end
of class time, providing a copy to the simulation director.
Having received recommendations from their advisory groups, the heads of state may
issue instructions for negotiation, give assignments to team members, obtain reports from
advisors after negotiations, and ultimately prepare move forms.
There are three types of moves that the heads of state may use: statements of intent
involve unilateral declarations made by one country; diplomatic moves are written
descriptions of a bilateral or multilateral agreement undertaken through negotiations
during a move period; military actions involve the use or threat of force. Copies of the
