Increase of Nuclear Tensions Still Emanating From Russian Ambitions of Global Superiority

Reader comment on item: Fighting the Last War
in response to reader comment: Global Security at Risk While American Defenses are No Longer Reliable - Foreign Dependence Distracted While Alliances are Changing

As if there is not enough tension in wondering what might be the ideological trigger that sets off the dreaded nuclear exchange many are concerned about, the Russian continues to exacerbate those fibrillating sensibilities with even further taunts of 'do not mess with me or else.' This observer suspects that the Russian is actually looking for the right provocation: and who is actually prepared to meet that challenge?
If this continues to embrace the activities outside of the Ukraine as it appears that it does, is NATO ready to act if the United States does not? Anyone?
