colz08, we're asked to write out the full answer and not just the letter or number in multiple choice questions. D is also not the answer. The crisis was known as a "diplomatic triumph" for Kennedy, meaning there was little to no military force used. I'm leaving this as a comment though, since I'm not sure if they're looking for answer B or C.
