Closer to an end

Consider this correlation for a moment:

A cornered bully, under imminently damning investigation which could lead to prison for family and possibly himself, with the power to authorize the launch of the most destructive nuclear arsenal known to humanity egged on by a two-bit dictator in a backwards country halfway around the world.

This is the scenario we face, as recognized by the world's leading nuclear scientists, as they move the doomsday clock closer to midnight. 

May we somehow find justice in our country without having to destroy the world.
