Close now? I hope not. I think the Cuban Missile Crisis was really "the brink" and the current situation is mostly posturing and rhetoric (I hope I'm right). North Korea has nukes but hopefully Kim is sane enough to realize that if he uses one, the consequences would probably be much worse for him than for anyone else.

Russia is rubbing its hands together and laughing at our incompetence over here while our President tries to pretend there was no meddling in the election or that Russian meddling isn't a big deal, while whatever the Russians have on him continues to run his playbook. God help us.

That might actually happen going into the 2020 elections; I wouldn't be surprised...
