Today's Anniversary

On this day in history, 1956:

...the start of the Hungarian Revolution, in which the heroic people of Hungary rose up against their Soviet oppressors and by force of arms established freedom for a brief but golden span of days before the U.S. government's behind-the-scenes betrayal and Communist treachery and slaughter overwhelmed them.

A date you (and I) SHOULD have known.
