What are the odds of a local or global nuclear conflict?
I can remember very well that in the eighties of the twentieth century I used to have nightmarish dreams of nuclear devices exploding on the horizon after which I woke up realizing that luckily it was just a dream. These dreams have come back to me, so I guess something is going on.
Is there a new cold war going on? Is it that Russia and the U.S.A. are taking opposite sides on something? But then again, I read that Trump had a friendly personal telephone call with Putin.
I also heard that the chances of an atomic bomb being dropped have increased since Trump is president of the U.S.A. but who can know that for sure? Maybe in the case of the provocations of North Korea, this may be the case.
The number of nuclear warheads in an alert state is about 14900 (look here), of which there are about 1800 in the U.S.A. and Russia together.
There is the situation in Syria/Near East, and many more hot spots. Take your pick.
Can anybody address this question (approximately)? Maybe it can make those dreams disappear.
I'm not in need of a psychologist. The dreams don't affect my daily functioning, which is, strangely enough, better than ever before (coming to think about it I even like these dreams: the wakening up after having had these dreams feels rather good, and an exploding nuclear bomb, especially a thermonuclear one, is great to see). I'm just curious.
