Doomsday Clock Adjusted in Face of Less Global Security

Implicit in the Doomsday Clock of the Bullentin of Atomic Scientists is that the world teeters on the brink of nuclear war and the United States is the culprit. Wrong-o!

Mr. Obama was cited as the main reason for the one-minute adjustment away from midnight, supposedly the Zero Hour for nuclear war. His nuclear stance at this point, while encouraging to the board of atomic scientists, will increase, not decrease, the chances for conflict.

It takes courage, not hope, for global security to prevail in the world. The enemies of a peaceful global order hope its defenders are swayed by such empty symbolism of changing clock hands.

The march of nuclear weapons and increasingly long-range ballistic missiles to deliver these payloads continues unabated as the Western powers are content with talking endlessly while their enemies build up their capability to strike first.

That is not an occasion to celebrate by moving the clock hand backward. That is a guarantee to move the clock hand forward in an increasingly dangerous because of the current US president´s pusillanimity.
