I'm just curious as to anyone's takes. A lot of political moves are being handled across the world right now.

Did you know that the world came within 90 minutes of ending in January 1996? It wasn't the first time, but it was the closest.
Today is nothing like the Cold War days. You are too young to have ever had a duck & cover drill at school, and too young to know anyone who has a fallout shelter, and probably don't know that a nuclear bomb was dropped on North Carolina (but didn't go off).
There are nuclear threats, but if you don't live in the Middle East, don't worry about it.
The situations to be concerned of are a major solar flare, "The Big One" earthquake in Los Angeles, and the "Enormously Huge One" earthquake off the coast from Seattle. These earthquakes, which will happen, will have world wide economic repercussions.
Wherever you are, have enough food and water to last two weeks to 6 months, a gun, and at least 500 rounds of ammunition (more is better). These simple precautions will enable one to wait out most calamities.0

Honestly, I don't like some of these comments because it just says "Well its not happening here so lets not worry." The US has been at "war" with some of the Middle Eastern countries for so long. I say "war" because its a one sided game. Most of the people dying are people in the Middle East. Media has portrayed them as the "other", as "them". As if they were an entirely different species. And some people treat them as such, which is honestly sad. Ever read the book 1984? It talks about how Government controls their populations through Fear and War. Well, both are happening right now, and people are feeding off of it like parasites. It's so easy to sit in a country like the US or Canada when the only tragedy we truly pass is through our facebook news feed, to which we just scroll past anyways. Maybe we feel a little bad, but we mostly just get on with our day. There is a war already happening, and its been in the happenings for a while now. If you don't believe me then ask the average person what they think about Islam. Most will not have the best view about it, or know only the things they've seen or heard. People who claim to value knowledge and truth, dont even research the truth they are seeking of.
The saddest part is that it seems like history just repeating itself. This is not something new, where a minority has been targeted by a mass. Or where a population has been enslaved by fear and propaganda.0
