No, that doesn't make the asshole an asshole. TPTB could change their minds and put WW III back in the 1990s, where it doesn't belong. But that would be foolish and I hope they stick to their guns. There's no ambiguity about the Eugenics War being the next world war, BTW. McCoy established it immediately. And that world war - our last - will be our current civilization's "last day." Pike said that directly.
