We are still on a hair trigger. This has not changed.
The unbridled aggression in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen and Syria by the Bush and Obama administrations have vastly increased the dangers.

No doubt, this is why the Atomic scientists have set the doomsday clock to 5 minutes til midnight.
This and our use of rendition/torture, the intensification of police state surveillance, not to mention the corruption on Wall Street, have convinced the world that the US is a criminal nation.
We are the most hated and feared people on earth.
W*gs and other sociopaths of his ilk revel in this "great accomplishment."
