Nuclear disarmament was once upon a time - now arming is taking place

After the atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, atomic scientists invented 1947 the doomsday clock. She shows symbolically, how close the world is to nuclear war. Today the pointers stand up 100 Seconds ahead 12 - closer than ever before.
When US President Joe Biden was asked about the US broadcaster PBS before his election, whether he feared a nuclear conflict, he answered, after much hesitation: "And. The situation is threatening. " He's worried, "That someone misjudges a situation and suddenly atom bombs are used".
UN Secretary General António Guterres calls on all states, to join the UN nuclear ban treaty that came into force in January. But especially with those governments, who own nuclear weapons themselves, he is hardly heard. Most of them are arming- instead of.
More and more experts are counting on it, that the circle of nuclear powers will expand in the next few years. For Mark Fitzpatrick, formerly responsible for weapons of mass destruction at the US State Department and today an expert at the London strategy think tank IISS, Iran and Saudi Arabia are the most likely newcomers. As soon as Iran has nuclear weapons, other regional powers would not watch, but react.
US President Donald Trump reached out to Tehran with his "policy of maximum pressure", that Iran is closer to the atomic bomb today than it was before, when the nuclear agreement he had canceled was still in force. These days Washington are signaling like Tehran, they wanted to go back to the nuclear deal. But both demanded, that the other side takes the first step, says Fitzpatrick: «The compromise should be: Both move in parallel. "
In the case of North Korea, it is unthinkable, that the Kim regime renounces its atomic bombs and thus its guarantee of survival, says Fitzpatrick: «The best possible result would be, if the Biden government could limit the North Korean arsenal. "
The USA and Russia, die zusammen rund neunzig Prozent aller Atomwaffen weltweit besitzen, könnten sich massive Abrüstungsschritte leisten, ohne ihr Abschreckungspotenzial zu gefährden. Unter Biden dürften die USA einen entsprechenden Vorstoss lancieren.
Russia, das wirtschaftlich erheblich unter Druck steht und sich seine Hochrüstung eigentlich gar nicht leisten kann, könnte darauf einsteigen. Angesichts des Klimas des Misstrauens ist der Ausgang völlig offen.

А нам чего бояться? Главный обещал, что в рай попадём. Врать, поди, не стал бы.
