I think the only chance of a nuclear conflict is if they fall into the wrong hands or some crackpot regime just goes crazy.

Iran and North Korea want nukes and talk about using them on other countries but I still think that its mostly posturing and looking tough.

The regimes know that it would mean certain death for everyone to start a nuclear war.
I think it is, to a degree. The problem is, the current leaders may be sane enough to only use it as a saber to rattle. But take North Korea. A very dangerous place. People are brainwashed from birth to be fanatics who hate the South, Japan, and the United States. They are completely out of touch with reality.

Kim Jong-un wouldn't use nukes, since he wants to prolong the status quo, but when the place falls apart, you're going to have a *** load of crazy, brainwashed military cliques armed with nuclear weapons. That is a nightmare waiting to happen.
