ASK most people to name a current crisis between nuclear armed states and North Korea and the US’ rapidly worsening relations would come to mind.
But there’s another skirmish happening between two nuclear nations and both have far more fully functioning missiles, poised and ready to fire, than Kim Jong-un could even dream off.

Potential conflicts that could include a nuclear component:
- US vs China
- US vs Russia
- US vs Russia and China
- US vs North Korea (Russia and China)
- China vs Japan (US)
- China vs India
- India vs Pakistan (China)
- Israel vs Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas (US, Russia and/or China)
Each of these potential conflicts is being discussed in the media from time to time. There is a strong potential for the US, Russia and/or China to be involved in all them. This suggests that some kind of nuclear war is on the horizon, and the potential for escalation is present. The clock is ticking.
