The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists today shifted the Doomsday Clock from 6 minutes to Midnight to 5, siting claims of the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East, Northeast Asia, and particularly in South Asia.

With 20,000 nuclear weapons still in the world today, the potential of nuclear war has increased. Along with the new START treaty, and the enforcement of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, both which have failed; disputes between Moscow and Washington on missile defense, and concerns about Iran's atomic activities, were reasons for the moving the clock forward.

"The potential for nuclear weapons use in regional conflicts in the Middle East, Northeast Asia, and particularly in South Asia is also alarming," the Bulletin said. "Ongoing efforts to ease tensions, deal with extremism and terrorist acts, and reduce the role of nuclear weapons in international relations have had only halting success. Yet we believe that international diplomatic pressure as well as burgeoning citizen action will help political leaders to see the folly of continuing to rely on nuclear weapons for national security"
