The chill in US-Russia relations has some worried about stumbling into a military conflict

It has the makings of a new Cold War, or worse.

The deep chill in U.S.-Russian relations is stirring concern in some quarters that Washington and Moscow are in danger of stumbling into an armed confrontation that, by mistake or miscalculation, could lead to nuclear war.

American and European analysts and current and former U.S. military officers say the nuclear superpowers need to talk more. A foundational arms control agreement is being abandoned and the last major limitation on strategic nuclear weapons could go away in less than two years. Unlike during the Cold War, when generations lived under threat of a nuclear Armageddon, the two militaries are barely on speaking terms.

“During the Cold War, we understood each other’s signals. We talked,” says the top NATO commander in Europe, U.S. Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, who is about to retire. “I’m concerned that we don’t know them as well today.”

    It is so obvious to see that leaders of different countries do not understand that nuclear war will not solve the problems of today. Nuclear war leads to the death of many people and afterwards the world will never be safe again because there will not be a place for anyone to live. The devil is doing a wicket job of convincing these leaders that they will win the war. Instead those left will die because of contamination from the war. No one wins, no one. And this is why the book of Revelation tells us that if it were not for Jesus coming back before we destroy each other this world would be destroyed for ever. I cannot wait to see my Lord Jesus.
