    • Closest we ever came to nuclear Holocaust was the Cuban Missile Crisis in the ‘60s. Single guy doubted an order to launch and double checked before he authorized it, probably save millions if not billions

    • Petrov realized that 4 projectiles wasn’t enough to retaliate about. He understood that the US would have sent everything they had at once if they were really going to nuke the Soviets. By stating it was a false alarm, Petrov literally saved the lives of almost everyone on Earth.

    • That bomber incident is crazy. Summery, Russian nuclear bomber on patrol on Russian border, plane had problem, Ivan ejects. Plane doesn’t go down, stays on its course, flys over the US. A dude spotted a Russian nuclear bomber but decided it wasn’t an attack and didn’t call for all out war

    • WWIII almost happened again in 1995. Norway launched a rocket to study the Aurora Borealis, which was confused for an American nuclear missile because Norway’s warning letter about it had gotten lost in the Soviet mail system. Despite advisors’ warnings, Yeltsin decided not to counterattack.

    • Break down of the Able Archer Situation (the event this post refers to) the US started conducting exercises for escalations of a DEFCON 1 coordinated attack. NATO forces mobilized across Western Europe & unlike previous drills, new coded comms, radio silence, and participation by heads of state.
