It's kinda scary when you think if had happened back in the day, when the U.S.S.R. / Warsaw Pact and NATO and the U.S. were always trying to
'stare' each other down, it may have triggered a 'launch on warning' of strategic nuke weapons. There was an incident in 1979 that almost did the
same thing. It was in the 'Southern Ocean' and was actually used in the tv series 'West Wing'! Maybe it's less of a 'threat' of anihilation,
and more of a warning to us here that we shouldn't even THINK about going back to those dark days, who knows, maybe Arthur C Clarke is looking out
for all of us out there somewhere !
