Instead of getting rid of the planet’s horrifying nuclear arsenal, humankind’s only winning strategy for avoiding Armageddon these last 72 years was not having nuclear launch codes in the hands of people like North Korea’s dangerous and despotic Kim Jong Un or a hotheaded, impulsive, and unconventional American president like Donald Trump. The last week has revealed the utter folly of that notion.
The good news is that the experts still believe, despite the insane rhetoric and threats from both sides, that a nuclear war involving the United States, North Korea, and assorted allies is highly unlikely. In that sense, it’s a little like comedian Steven Wright’s joke about his plan to live forever: so far, so good.
