Cold War Round 2
November 6th, 2017
What the f*ck?
Nuclear war. Not the fun and exciting kind that we find in Fallout games, but the very real possibility of death and destruction on a global scale. Nobody wants that. I am confident that I can speak on behalf of the entire planet, with a few minor exceptions, when I say that nobody wants that big red button pressed (because we all know Trump rigged up a big red button). However, we are inching closer and closer to needing to save our bottlecaps and stocking up on water and hand grenades. This all begs the question: what the f*ck is happening?

Trump has put nuclear bombers on permanent standby, a symptom of “war fever,” as the North Korean’s news media put it. Other symptoms may include nausea from starting a war, headaches from the stress of starting a war, and diarrhoea. To be fair Trump called Kim Jong-un ‘Rocket Man’, like a fifth grader. It can be understood why North Korea wants nukes. They can acquire global recognition and can allow them to ‘play with the big boys’. I am not advocating for anyone to have nukes, but I understand why they want them.
What they need to understand, however, is that they cannot possibly win. If Kim Jong-un even twitches towards launching, Trump will unleash a fury that will be “devastating” to North Korea. Trump did say that going nuclear is not the first option in dealing with North Korea, but it is the second. My question is why not maybe the third option? or the 11th option? Or heck why not even the last option? Because how many of you have had your first option fail? It seems like nuclear war is going to happen and Trump’s defence is “well, we tried.” Does that mean if I fail a midterm I get to drop out of school because well hey, “I tried.”
