Sputnik — US Study on 'Decapitating' Russia, China May Raise Fear of Surprise Nuke Attack

US Congress choses to up the ante while also undercutting Trump's attempt to negotiate nuclear arms reduction with Russia. This will just move the hands of the doomsday clock closer to midnight and the onset of nuclear winter.


Meanwhile, John McCain and Lindsey Graham are doing their best to start WWIII.

And people are obsessing about Donald Trump being crazy and irresponsible?

When it comes to crazy and irresponsible, McCain is in a league of his own. Thankfully he never became prez.

Trump and his merry band of shysters on the whole don't have the wherewithal to be intentionally crazy and irresponsible. They're bunglers, but importantly bunglers with good PR. Mark Twain said it best: "Give a man a reputation as an early riser and he can sleep 'til noon." That's what's happening with all the pro-Trump PR. Trump is lucky in the enemies he has: the dimwitted libruls of the NYT, WaPo, CNN, MSNBC who are going gaga over quite possibly the most deranged conspiracy since JFK. Bunglers can, however, be unintentionally crazy and irresponsible. And that's my prediction for the next four years: it's going to be the Keystone Cops administration. Trump replacing bunglers with more bunglers who in turn need to be replaced...ad infinitum. How long before Rick Perry is shown the door, because the man is a fucking moron? How long before one or more his team of corporate shysters has to resign because of scandal? The list is just about endless.

That's why he didn't become president. The Deep State likes war - very profitable - but nuclear war is the end game. The only profit in that is in being fully prepared and NOT doing it.

The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked and he who loves violence, His soul hates. from the sorely neglected Old Testament, also Scripture, Psalm 11:5

John said...

Andrew, I can't say I see much of God hating these warmongers. Or for that matter "for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword." All evidence is to the contrary, and he who lives by the sword, as long as it's a bigger and better sword than the other fellow has, is going to slice the other fellow in half, plunder his wealth and turn the Lord's creation into a wasteland.

"for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword." via John

I imagine a part of a person DOES perish when they've killed another. Apparently one's first killing of another human being is a gut wrenching experience followed by puking.


Psalm 92:5-7 New American Standard Bible (NASB) [bold added]

How great are Your works, O Lord!
Your thoughts are very deep.
A senseless man has no knowledge,
Nor does a stupid man understand this:
That when the wicked sprouted up like grass
And all who did iniquity flourished,
It was only that they might be destroyed forevermore.

Life is a test we should be careful to pass.
