Putin said today they will draw down the US presence to 150 from the 400-500 or so that are there now in retaliation to the consulate closures. That will make it ever harder for all the Russians we have running around the US to get green cards and visas.  They will then have to vacation in more dangerous places in the world.

Some famously saved the world, as President Kennedy did in saving humanity from annihilation by military hawks on both sides during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. But as the Cold War took another chilly turn in 1983, this man in the Soviet Union anonymously saved the world from a computer glitch that nearly triggered a nuclear Armageddon. Apparently few knew he died in May but it was not well-known until a birthday call was missed, then it was publicized....

'I was just doing my job': Soviet officer who averted nuclear war dies at age 77
Published time: 17 Sep, 2017 19:01

A Soviet officer who prevented a nuclear crisis between the US and the USSR and possible World War III in the 1980s has quietly passed away. He was 77. In 2010 RT spoke to Stanislav Petrov, who never considered himself a hero. We look at the life of the man who saved the world.

A decision that Soviet lieutenant colonel Stanislav Petrov once took went down in history as one that stopped the Cold War from turning into nuclear Armageddon, largely thanks to Karl Schumacher, a political activist from Germany who helped the news of his heroism first reach a western audience nearly two decades ago.

On September 7, Schumacher, who kept in touch with Petrov in the intervening years, phoned him to wish him a happy birthday, but instead learned from Petrovís son, Dmitry, that the retired officer had died on May 19 in his home in a small town near Moscow.
