On a scale of 1-10, where do you feel the world threat level is?

Primary concern are the feelings of division and distrust between all People and the United States government, especially distrust between the People of The United States of America and the United States. Our People are in Danger. Not from foreign influence or invasion but from apathy and distrust within.

The problem is nuclear weapons. Without their existence, WW3 would have been fought already. Israel would probably no longer exist, and the USSR could have easily taken all of Europe without nuclear weapons to deter them. Therefore, the tensions that have been growing and festering since the end of WW2 would have eventually led to a conventional third world war being fought sometime in the mid-1960's, most likely. Just like plate tectonics, those tensions will eventually snap, at anywhere of a half dozen flash points around the globe. And that will quickly grow into a third world war, but with some level of nuclear exchange before it stops. I could write an entire essay on how the origins of WW3 will be able to be traced back hundreds of years.
