The End is Nigh, Repent Your Sins

This has to be a sign that we're nearing The End.
Citing a more "hopeful state of world affairs"..., the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS) is moving the minute hand of its famous Doomsday Clock one minute away from midnight. It is now 6 minutes to midnight.

Hmmm, now what could have created this "hopeful state of world affairs", what "changed"?

The statement continues:  "A key to the new era of cooperation is a change in the U.S. government's orientation toward international affairs brought about in part by the election of Obama. 
Heh.

With a more pragmatic, problem-solving approach,
You know, the approach that sets deadline after deadline that is ignored while issuing threats of sanctions that China will veto.
Let's see exactly how stupid they can get (Hint: Pretty darn stupid).

not only has Obama  initiated new arms reduction talks with Russia,
Heh. That good old Tsar Putin I laughed at before telling Obama to go screw. He's too busy preparing for the invasion of Georgia in the spring to worry about arms reduction.
But wait, they go farther.
 he has started negotiations with Iran to close its nuclear enrichment program,

Ummmm, no. Those started about 5 years ago with the EU-3 and they have been a farce. My favorite was when the EUnuchs came out waving a piece of paper talking about "Peace in our time" and the Iranians came out and said, "We didn't make a deal." Good times.
Obama did "start" direct American involvement, you know, sending begging letters to the Mad Mullahs that they wiped their left hands on after wiping their butts.
And just in case you didn't realize exactly how stupid the Doomsday Clock people are
and directed the U.S. government to lead a global effort to secure loose fissile material in four years.
Heh, I'm pretty sure that promise has an expiration date of oh, say, about a minute after making it.

He also presided over the U.N. Security Council last September where he supported a fissile material cutoff treaty and encouraged all countries to live up to their disarmament and nonproliferation obligations under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty …"

Yup, that and the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th IDs, the Marines, the 4th-7th Fleets, a flock of B-52s and Stealth Bombers, the 82nd and 101st and a shitload of special forces will make North Korea or Iran give up their nukular ambitions.

So since these tools have "hope" for "change", that must mean it's almost over.

I'm looking for armor, a sheild and a bow in case it's Ragnarok and my guns are useless, I'm no good with a sword.
