Brazil is protesting against corruption, police brutality, for better schools, hopitals and public transportation, for the media show the truth and not to repress protests. Who can not go to the streets can help supporting the moviment, sharing in social networking. The protest that started with some people in one city now is in the whole country with thousands of people. Right now the protesters are in the capital in front of the National Congress of Brazil, the legislative body of Brazil’s federal government.
50 years ago, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasilli Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain’s order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and setting off what might well have been a terminal superpower nuclear war.
The US had been dropping depth charges near the submarine in an attempt to force it to surface, unaware it was carrying nuclear arms. The Soviet officers, who had lost radio contact with Moscow, concluded that World War 3 had begun, and 2 of the officers agreed to ‘blast the warships out of the water’. Arkhipov refused to agree – unanimous consent of 3 officers was required and thanks to him, the world was saved from being scarred badly.
His story is finally being told the BBC is airing a documentary on it.
thinking for yourself.
might just save the god damn world.
