Thread Name: BS: Trump Korean War II
Subject: RE: BS: Trump Korean War II
Is there not a certain grim irony in a nuclear power with a leadership as belligerent and unstable as the Trump administration's, a power that conducted a war against Third World peasants for seven years by pouring burning petrol on them and spraying them with carcinogenic chemicals - the only state that has ever used weapons of mass destruction on two cities of non-combatant civilians - telling another State that it is not to be trusted with nuclear weapons?
The warning bells on the proliferation of Nuclear weaponry should have been heeded when it was revealed that, in 1975, one extremist state attempted to arm another, Apartheid South Africa with these WMD
Nobody is to be trusted with them and if The U.S. has them, there is no argument against why any nation capable of manufacturing them shouldn't have the right to defend itself.
Wake-up time down West, I think!
