Something to think about,found on Twitter this morning.
Considering that no WMDs,advised by American analysts, were found in Iraq,how can we be certain that those same analysts are right about Nth.Korea.

Americans love a strong leader. Trumps poll rating has jumped from 39% to 45% in one week.

But is not a week in politics a long time Buck, Slapsy,
in a world of lies and misinformation it pays to be a
cynic and it sits well with age.

Quite right, Buck, but I doubt Trump has ever taken that into account.
Something else he hasn't taken into account, perhaps?
But there’s a lesser-known consequence of a nuclear explosion that can drastically expand its damage zone: an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP.
Paul Singer, manager of the Elliott Management hedge fund, warned in his latest newsletter that:

Even horrendous nuclear war, except in its most extreme form, can be a relatively localised issue, and the threat from asteroids can possibly be mitigated. The risks associated with an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, represent another story entirely.
