The most famous event of that kind it was Cuban missile crisis in 1962.

But world was in the brink of nuclear WWIII a lot more times.

In every error there's something to learn.


Do you remember or know more situations like that?

Recently it happened a G5 geomagnetic storm, that it can cause link lost to Satellites, including early warning Satellites.

A solar storm​

On 23 May 1967, an intense solar storm – one of the largest blasts of radiation from the Sun’s surface on record – tampered with a set of American surveillance radars in the far Northern Hemisphere, used by the military to detect incoming Soviet missiles.

Assuming they had been jammed by the USSR (something tantamount to an act of war), the Air Force authorised the mobilisation of aircraft and nuclear-equipped troops to retaliate against the Soviet Union.

At the last minute, a group of scientists stepped in and showed that the radars were actually disrupted by the Sun, not the Soviets.

“Had it not been for the fact that we had invested very early on in solar and geomagnetic storm observations and forecasting, the impact [of the storm] likely would have been much greater,” said space scientist Delores Knipp, who broke the story in 2016. “This was a lesson learned in how important it is to be prepared.”

My favorite closest moment to a nuclear WWIII it was January 21st 2012.

In the context of USA/Iran tensions in Hormuz strait.


Fidel Castro article of January 12, after a meeting with Ahmadinejad (Iran president in that moment): "World peace hanging by a thread"

January 19 Kissinger visits Russia
Russia announced next day they wont send S300 to Iran.

January 19 Seizure of Megaupload
Anonymous threat and did cyberattacks, that it could be used as excuse to cut whole USA communications if the presidents had wanted.

Whole USA without outside communications and Early Warning satellites blocked by a Geomagnetic storm, it means a first strike can be executed by USA without Russia/China aware of it until the bombs drop over their heads.
23 January, excuse to jammer Early warning sats and disguise as geomagnetic storm

21 January
17 dead after boat sunk in Hormuz strait

24 January USA aircraft carriers passing by pairs through Hormuz strait

26 January Fidel Castro publish a article with the meaningful title "the fruit that did not fall", it didnt talk about Iran provocations, it talk about Cuba history, but it can be understood as a reference that Iran didnt bite USA bait and provocations in those days.

My personal opinion is:
USA wanted that Iran had sunk their aircraft carriers in Hormuz as excuse to launch a first nuclear strike against Iran, that in the middle of the confusion of the moment it could be used by USA deep state to launch a first strike against Russia and China.

It seems USA deep state was sure about Iran would answer provocations, maybe due to electronic eavesdropping of Iran high ranks that they know were eavesdropped and gave false information.
Iran did nothing, but USA moved a lot of things those days that it was like a nuclear WWIII preparation.
