Yes, we have a protege of Andre Andropov running the former Soviet Union now.

And we may actually elect General Ripper/LeMay to the Oval Office.

It is not hard to see things go real Bad if ElTrumpo takes the reigns of power.

Number one reason to not vote for him - the risk of him launching nukes to the phrase "You're fired!"

Tsk, tsk, you're getting dangerously close to having this thrown into the pit of RSP.

This has been fairly general knowledge for the last couple of decades. There were other unintentional incidents that came close to this, but nothing quite so bad. Of course, the 1962 Cuba-Missile Crisis was even worse. Good find, good read!!

I like "Castle Bravo" [wiki] and the Lithium Surprise.
