How close are we to nuclear war

In this week’s edition of Behind the Headlines, we will be discussing how the world is now closer to a nuclear confrontation than any time since the Cuban Missile crisis of 1962. This week the news is dominated by North Korea the rogue state test firing its first strategic cruise missile that reached 900 miles that has capacity to deliver nuclear weapons. 

We have witnessed this summer that the great balance of power has shifted dramatically as the enemies of the United States and the West sense America’s weak leadership and chaotic foreign policy decisions that have destabilised and endangered the planet. 

President Biden’s disastrous military withdrawal from Afghanistan has empowered dangerous Islamist’s terrorists with the Taliban defeating the Afghan army and taking over the country has shocked US allies in the region and the Middle East. The Iranian regime is believed to be 50 days from nuclear breakout that will trigger a nuclear arms race with neighbouring states. China is increasing it belligerence behaviour in the South China seas whilst threatening the invasion of Taiwan. The Chinese government are also stockpiling nuclear weapons and developing hypersonic missiles. Russia remains of the verge of a full out invasion of Ukraine as European allies question America’s commitment to NATO. 

As America power fades on the world state and her enemies exaggerate America’s military weakness and lack of capability and resolve could leading to huge aggressive military musculation’s and mistakes by our enemies. The world has never been as closer to nuclear confrontation in 59 years. This according to Grady Means a former policy assistant to Vice President Nelson Rockefeller who served in the Ford Administration.
