" Trump’s Warning To North Korea Called ‘Exactly Wrong’ And ‘Reckless’ “That is about the stupidest and most dangerous statement I have ever heard an American president make.”

Donald Trump: “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. [North Korean leader Kim Jong Un] has been very threatening beyond a normal state.”

​Kim Jong Un: ​“The slightest sign of attempt to remove our supreme leadership” will lead to a “merciless blow” with its “powerful nuclear hammer.”

Two unhinged crackpot leaders one at the head of the most powerful nuclear powered nation on earth; the other the demagogue leader of a totalitarian state both making unhinged verbal threats of war between two nuclear armed nations. There are, of course, other nuclear powered nations in that neck of the woods riding sidecar nearby. What could possibly go wrong?

Many of those who have not seen nor experienced the realities of this nuclear weapon think it is an exciting all powerful armament they cannot wait to use. Perhaps it is appropriate to show what a nuclear attack really means. Watch and learn. It may be the most important sight you see in your lifetime. Anyone who threatens the use of such an unconscionable weapon should see its reality and pray to whatever god one worships or, indeed, if one worships no god at all and know exploding a nuclear bomb will be an existential threat and life eradicating use of a weapon that harnesses the most powerful force on earth.

There has been only one nation, the United States of America, that has used such a weapon when the rest of the world did not possesses it. The US exploded "Fat Man" and "Little Boy" in August, 1945 on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan ostensibly to finally end the war in the Pacific so US troops would not have to risk thousands of casualties by an invasion of mainland Japan. One can debate that rationale. What one cannot debate is that the use of these bombs introduced to the world the most destructive, life and planet annihilating weapon in man's arsenal and those bombs by today's standards were "small." Upon its explosion think on the statement of Robert Oppenheimer, the scientific director of the Manhattan Project that developed the nuclear bomb:

We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.
​Look and see so you will know the reality of what two pathological narcissistic leaders have threatened to use and then go and through diplomacy make sure they do not sin again: ​

Hiroshima, August, 1945
