Locked And Loaded

There is no doubt in my mind that what is going on between Kin Jung In, and Donald Trump is now slowly getting attention of the American people here, and especially Guam. The president tweeted that our military forces are lock and loaded in case of any perceived movement by the North Korean military to attack US territories in that part of the world. It is known for the last seventy years that to use nuclear weapons would lead to worldwide suffering on a scale not seen since Hiroshima, and Nagasaki were flattened in a matter of seconds. The death toll over 140,000 people and hundreds of thousands injured.

This action by the US ended the second world war. Any action using nuclear weapons will be the beginning of a third world war. When one country attacks another the flood gates of weaponry that are in other countries nuclear arsenals might be used against their neighbors. There is a slippery slope that we are fast approaching because every word that is uttered between the Donald, and Kim ramp up the chance for a mistake to be made. Old men start wars and the young fight them. This is the way it has always been throughout human history. I worry that once again modern society has not learned has not learned the lessons of those who came before us, and we are destined to repeat those mistakes.

That is who we are at this point in time.
