There's Hurricanes in Florida...

With all of the natural disasters hitting places as far-flung as the Indian subcontinent to Mexico... With earth, wind and fire wreaking havoc, and a nuke-armed nutjob on the loose, I am reminded of a childhood favorite- the Kingston Trio's Merry Minuet, written by Sheldon Harnick, is a masterpiece of comedy so black it's fuligin. It's surprisingly topical, but it always seems to be so:





I'll be hiding under the bed, laughing like a hyena.

I really wish smart people would stop screaming 'OMG NUCLEAR WAR!!!!' It's NOT going to happen, it distracts from really important and destructive developments and it empowers Trump and his coterie of Generals to use the US military in unnecessary and inappropriate ways.

Look - The LAST thing KJU wants is to die - he's trying desperately to prevent an attack, not start a war. And no, the US can't use nukes against him even if Trump wanted to - the fallout would hit China, South Korea, Japan and perhaps Russia. That's not the kind of thing that ANYBODY wants to happen.

The sooner we can just start to ignore L'il Kim, the better off we'll be as Americans with an idiot driving the ship of state.

It's also worth realizing, in this context, that there actually ARE things that the US could do militarily on the peninsula that would not start a second Korean war. Once again, the key is that Kim REALLY likes his life, his gourmet food, his legion of servants, the endless supply of sixteen year old girls - if the US launched a strike against his nuclear facilities, he could prevent his domestic audience from knowing about it, and everyone knows it wouldn't destroy his ability to design and build nuclear weapons...

Yeah, I think the real problem is that the US' recent track record basically shows that dictators need to develop nukes so they don't go the way of Saddam and Muammar.
