The Soviet Union's decision to erect a wall between East and West Berlin initiated the Berlin Crisis of 1961. With the construction of the wall, the Soviet-controlled eastern portion of the city was separated from the western portion, which was controlled by the United States and its allies. Many feared that the crisis would result in an escalation of the cold war. Addressing reporters, President John F. Kennedy cautioned against calls for strikes against the Soviet Union and said that, because of nuclear weapons, Americans "happen to live in the most dangerous time in the history of the human race".
