Nah. 70 years of no nuclear war gives apparent evidence that things are 
not too bad. Correcting for anthropic bias and including the numerous 
near misses still seems to lead to the conclusion that the system is not 
super-bad. On the other hand, it does suggest that a less conscientious 
or sane country very quickly could mess things up.
