      2. Molnskuggan

      3. SCP- 8888

        You requested a more detailed description

      4. Molnskuggan

        @SCP- 8888 Huh

      5. SCP- 8888

        Mainly the US. A computer technician put a training tape of a full launch of the U.S.S.R.'s nuclear stockpile into a computer system directly linked to N.O.R.A.D.'s early warning system, resulting in false data being fed to the systems. This caused enormous panic, and just 7 more minutes of not realizing other systems were saying otherwise would have gotten the entire U.S. arsenal dropped on asia's head, which would have caused a worldwide nuclear catastrophe.

    33. Nono Mxotwa

    38. Fluf Pet

      It's funny how we all think humanity's dark age is over, but one incident can make the world go back into madness.

    45. CYAN_ Is imposter

      Star and Stripes beats Hammer and Sickle

    46. Elaina Ferko

      Fun fact, one of the moments that didn't necessarily almost start nuclear armageddon, but did almost start WWIII, was a sabotage alarm raised on a Minnesota air base during the Cuban Missile Crisis. It caused several American air bases to scramble jets, until they got the all-clear at the last second, because it turned out the "saboteur" was just a bear that was trying to climb the fence. One base's alarms were wired incorrectly, and signalled them to be prepared for incoming bombers. Someone phoned the Minnesota base for confirmation, and was told it was a false alarm. The amount of people involved in so many events that could have started nuclear armaggedon and still exercised caution just astounds me.

      Vietnam was more about making LBJ's war profiteering in-laws richer. But the truth of that was admitted after this video was made.
