With all that is going on in the Ukraine it seems like the nightmare scenario of 1983 is starting to happen with cultural Russians starting to assert control in Crimea. This was one of the issues asserted that almost brought us to the brink of Nuclear annihilation, and now the beast has risen its head once again. Worrisome?

Yes, but not all of us had thought Reagan had in fact one. He did not end the threat, just changed how the threat was governed (or to be more precise changed what they call themselves).

In fact all this does is prove just how hollow the claims of Reagan's victory (given the price the US has paid since) are.

The worrying thing is that in the cold war there was a degree of stability that is now lacking. It is the potential for one loony with a pistil that makes war more likely, not one loony with a nuclear arsenal.

When I look at the Ukrainian I see Serbia in 1914, the same spit in their eye nationalism. The same drift to wards nations involving themselves in a situation they do not really understand (or have anything to gain by).

We need more S in RSP, so:

Not as dangerous as the US or Russian nuclear arsenals, but I wouldn't want a loony to hit me with one.
