I don't trust any of them to behave in a responsible manner with a pop-gun let alone a nuclear weapon. Politicians seek dominion over life, to control the manner in which people live to fit their view of the world, that's why they're politicians. All leaders would conquer the world if they could and if one country alone has nuclear weapons then they posess that power. Still I support all of the above having nuclear weapons because none of them want to die. I'll put my trust in world leaders having guns pointed at each others heads rather than in the world leaders themselves, it's only in a balance of power that can be trusted, never the countries or people themselves.

US. Not because we're less belligerent. Because we have an overwhelming conventional military, and therefore have a lower likelihood of using the bomb, allowing it to be more of a defensive deterrent than an offensive weapon.

Keep in mind, we(usa) were the only ones to use them so far.But that doesn't answer the poll. You have no confidence in none, but that doesn't answer the poll. I guess in your case it should be, who would be least trigger happy.

Since the question is who do you trust the most, I put the U.S. as I think we are the least likely to use them offensively. I don't trust Iran, just because they can be a bit belligerent, especially with the whole "destroy Israel" thing. Though I don't think they'll ever actually do anything. I trust China to not use it as an offensive weapon. I'm beginning to realize the Chinese government isn't particularly belligerent towards other countries. They don't want world domination or anything like that, and would only use nuclear weapons defensively.

Russia I trust the least, of those listed. Not because I think they will use them, but because they have a horrible track record of keeping their eyes on their weapons and what not. I'd be more afraid of someone stealing a weapon from Russia (or at least the material needed to produce one) and using it, not on Russia using their own.

The two I absolutely trust least are India and Pakistan. Individually I wouldn't be worried, but the fact that two intense rivals both have nuclear weapons, share a common border, and have a history of violence and warfare with each other scares me.

I trust Britain and France with nuclear weapons the most, for the simple reason that even if they were war like they wouldn't be capable of doing anything anyways.

It should be noted, at the very least, that both the U.S. and Russia are constantly lowering the number of warheads in service. I doubt they'll ever be completely disarmed, but I would expect to see in the future having numbers in the hundreds rather than in the thousands.

I trust none of them equally.

The most trigger happy, I would think is the USA.

I trust Russia the most because even if they get mad enough their missiles are so crappy they won't launch... jk. Actually I don't trust anybody with nuclear missiles but if I had to chose I'd go with the US because I don't have enough experience with those other countries to back any of them, though Russia doesn't seem to be that bad of a choice even though they'd use the nukes as political leverage all the time.

Oh Iran definitely, they wouldn't want to use nukes against anybody. Especially Israel or the US.

Russia is probably second most responsible, they'd just use the regular tanks and stuff.
