Russia is the moral panic of the day (along with OMG Nazis!) two forces which were ironically massively opposed to eachother back in WWII lol. The authoritarian left with their Russian xenophobia don't even see the irony that they're doing the exact same thing the authoritarian right did 40-50 years ago. Never thought I'd see a revival of the Cold War in my lifetime..
I know very little about Putin, but I don't think he'd be reckless enough to start a nuclear war. Kim Jong Un on the other hand? More of a question mark.. Though nuclear war started by ANY of these countries is like a one in a million chance.. These leaders know this would essentially be the end of civilization. The media loves to keep people scared about these sorts of things, and many sadly buy in..
