    We're facing an imminent nuclear Armageddon yet Trump is horrible because he wants to establish good relations with Russia. Get your damn stories straight!

    Calculated and predictable responses. Trump is a wildcard.

    Hillary Clinton threatened Iran with a nuclear response if they attacked Israel. As far as I know Trump hasn't threatened to nuke anybody.

    Are you claiming that if Hillary won, they would have added time to the clock :) ?

    I would only agree that a symbolic clock is as nourishing to the intellect as is a photograph of oxygen to a drowning man.

    No specifics as to who, but he is more open to using them than anyone in recent memory.

    If you had asked me yesterday if there was any chance the US would get in a war with Mexico again I would have said not in my lifetime. Today I'm not so sure, and if Trump makes China mad enough we may not be able to even beat Mexico. Our military is too reliant on technology and if we were to have China against us even in a proxy war we don't have access to the raw materials to make computers 100% from scratch.

    I don't think it is likely, but if we were to have a digital equivalent of Pearl Harbor it would be very difficult for us to come back from that. And if we make enemies of Mexico it could potentially give China a beached in North America like we had in England in WWII.

    I find your movie reference deeply ironic given our current Commander in Cheif.

    PJW said it best: We avoid Hillary 'war with Russia' Clinton and yet we're closer to doomsday? This is partisan hackery.

    Now you got 'war with everyone but Russia' Trump instead. Facts hurt right?

    You might have noticed the clock is not about the likelihood of nuclear war (conventional war and environmental destruction are represented as well) and is not about America.

    For what it's worth, when they mention "the rise of nationalism" they probably have good ol' Yurop in mind, which is decidedly worse off than 'murica these days.

    I find it pretty obvious, however, that the world is getting a tenser (and more polluted) place than it was 25 years ago...

    Ordinary people would find a teensy bit of a problem in "making everyone else less".
