Stanislav Petrov (born c. 1939) is a retired Russian Army colonel who, on September 26, 1983, averted a potential nuclear war by refusing to accept that missiles had been launched against the USSR by the United States, despite the indication given by his computerised early warning systems. The Soviet computer reports were later shown to have been in error, and Petrov is credited with preventing World War III and the devastation of much of the Earth by nuclear weapons. Because of military secrecy and political and international differences, Petrov's actions were kept secret until 1998.

He saved all of us from being destroyed in a Nuclear War, to bad he isn't remembered or known about.

First of all why in the world is this in the Terrorism forum, second of all wow, it is a wonder that he remained a regular guy and didn't fully get the award he was supposed to get.
