The verbal rhetoric of two bullies is endangering the tender peace of our world.
The powerful words of President Trump to match the threats of North Korea’s sociopathic leader positions America into an untenable path of fire and fury rather than the options of difficult talk.
Yes, talk! Each side has postured itself into a belligerent position. This is not just between two egotistical leaders; it is now between the new way of global cooperation and equality and the old way of war.
It must not happen. The world needs to be done with devastation. The consequence will be near annihilation for millions and millions of innocent people.
A news report today said that North Korea has a weapon similar in destructive power as the one dropped on Hiroshima.
To make the bomb that hit Hiroshima, according to author Eric Schlosser, the US used 141 pounds of Uranium, basically all of the processed Uranium that was then in existence.
In his book Command and Control, when the bomb exploded most of the enriched uranium was blown apart before the bomb reached the “supercritical” phase. He says, in the end, the huge explosion was caused by just 0.7g of Uranium. As Schlosser notes, that material weighed less than a dollar bill, and it killed 80,000 people.
Can you imagine if all 141 pound of Uranium had reached the critical stage? Don’t imagine, expect the modern day equivalent, even from North Korea, to be far more refined and sophisticated.
We don’t need posturing bullies in the world today; we need statesmen and stateswomen, diplomats, and diplomacy to defuse this worsening confrontation. This situation is global, not just America and North Korea. Pray, my friends that the little minds of humankind can morph into a cosmic understanding that we are all ONE.
