If it helps, this is a true story [hollywood style, but still].

 

That should really narrow it down when you realize who's being referenced in the first quote.

*studies the first 2 quotes*

The latter might refer to the Cuban Missile Crisis, and/or Mutually Assured Destruction.    With 2 good brothers mentioned, this might be a reference to....

"JFK".

So much accuracy to result in the wrong conclusion.

Change your third paragraph.

So, there was a movie called "Thirteen Days" and it was about JFK and the Cuban Missile Crisis.    Live and learn.

Sorry I missed that.  I've been taking care of some personal stuff so I've been away.  I won't be checking in until the end of the week but I might read one or two posts now and then.

You'd be shocked at how often I guess at a movie- often correctly- having not seen it, or having seen a few clips.   

You wouldn't be shocked at how many of my wild swings have been clean misses.
