Today In Cold War History
1952 – The United States government establishes the National Security Agency, or NSA.
1953: A group of UN members along with neutral observers led an angry anti-communist protest.
1956 : After the Hungarian Uprising last week led by Prime Minister Imre Nagy the soviet air force has been bombing the capital of Hungary Budapest and have now amassed 1,000 Soviet tanks on the outskirts of Budapest to crush the uprising once and for all. In the next month the Soviet Union took back full control of the country deploying tens of thousands of troops and tanks and replaced the head of government with Janos Kadar. During the following months more than 50,000 were killed and 200,000 Hungarians sought political asylum in the West during the Soviet crackdown.
1962 – The United States concludes Operation Fishbowl, its final above-ground nuclear weapons testing series, in anticipation of the 1963 Partial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.
1963: The Russians had stopped another U.S. convoy while it was traveling on the autobahn between West Berlin and West Germany. This halted convoy had just been used in a training exercise in West Germany.
1970 – Vietnam War: Vietnamization: The United States turns control of the Binh Thuy Air Base in the Mekong Delta over to South Vietnam.
1970 – Salvador Allende takes office as President of Chile, the first Marxist to become president of a Latin American country through open elections.
1973 – The Netherlands experiences the first Car-Free Sunday caused by the 1973 oil crisis. Highways are deserted and are used only by cyclists and roller skaters.
1973: A magazine article was published regarding the possible shortage of electricity in some areas of the United States. Americans were urged to conserve energy in case the Arab boycott would continue for an extended period of time. A gasoline shortage was also expected, and as a result a motion was made to lower speed limits. Measures were taken to help reduce the possibility of brownouts or blackouts in the U.S.
1979: Militant student followers of the Ayatollah Khomeini storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran taking 90 hostages. The students were enraged that the deposed Shah had been allowed to enter the United States for medical treatment and they threatened to murder hostages if any rescue was attempted. No diplomatic solution could be found and President Carter ordered a rescue mission in which eight U.S. military personnel were killed and no hostages rescued. The hostages were held in captivity for 14 months and were eventually released when the US Government released $3 billion in frozen Iranian assets and promised $5 billion more in financial aid.
1980 : Former Hollywood actor and Republican Ronald Reagan wins the US presidential elections beating Democrat Jimmy Carter with a huge majority.
1985 : It was revealed on this day that Italian prosecutors made plans to interrogate Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. He was believed to be a reliable witness to the hijacking of the cruise ship Achille Lauro.
