He knew the "kid" the US had elected was not very bright and had childishly got himself in a pickle and would / could not back off ... and knew that only if he, Nikita, backed off would no bombs go off
A rare bright and BRAVE moment in USSR history. He got fired not too long after but is one of very few political "true heros" to me
Sometimes sticking to it if it means lives is gutless .... and backing off to save lives is true bravery
