Some time ago I reported on a conference in Cuba, to remember and discuss the Cuban missile crisis 40 years after it happened. This is another report of a close shave with nuclear war, prompted by a deffective Russian radar system. People tend to overestimate the competence and common-sense of civil and military leaders, while sub-estimating the risk of accidental, or purposeful, nuclear war.
