    I heard about this and this is not good news. The Doomsday Clock is currently set at two minutes until midnight, the closest it has been since 1953. It was set there in 2018 and not changed for 2019.

    We should be doing more to pull back from the brink, but unfortunately, it may have to wait until there is an adult in the Oval Office.

    I think Putin has to go as well.
    He is an angry man who is still looking for payback for the collapse of the Soviet Union.

    The Russians broke it first when they started making all kinds of new intermediate range nuclear weapons.

    The US is proceeding with missile defense tech that Russia didn't like.

    In fairness it's quite plausible this would have happened had HRC won the election, assuming we weren't already in a shooting war.
