The Cold War may have ended 40 years ago but a year into Donald Trump's presidency and a nervous nation is running for cover and stuffing their children in sewer pipes to save them from a perceived nuclear holocaust. But hey my 401k is doing great, maybe it's time to cash it in on a backyard bomb shelter.  

 

What If Hawaii's False Missile Alert Had Been Real? Here's What Would Happen Next

“BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL,”...

 

Hawaii’s false ballistic missile alert was the latest reminder of the nuclear threat that North Korea poses to the U.S. amid the rising tensions and war of words between the two nation’s leaders.

People freaked and ran for cover because an official warning went out, not because Trump is president.

President Bill Clinton

Soon after Clinton took office in 1994, North Korea threatened to abandon its commitment to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty behind. North Korea refused an international inspection related to the treaty. This led the Clinton administration to seek to bring the nation back into the fold.

Former President Jimmy Carter was secretly sent to Pyongyang to pave the way for a diplomatic agreement.

Clintons administration successfully established a deal known as the Joint Framework Agreement which offered $4 billion worth of nuclear, energy, economic and diplomatic benefits in exchange for the halting of North Koreas nuclear program in 1994. The deal also included two light-water nuclear reactors, which were believed to be more difficult to use to make weapons than Pyongyangs plutonium reactor.

The International Atomic Energy Agency was set to oversee all of this and do routine inspections.

"This agreement will help achieve a longstanding and vital American objective -- an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula, Clinton said at the time.


President George W. Bush

Bush famously named North Korea as one part of the three-part axis of evil with Iraq and Iran in his State of the Union speech as president in 2002.

North Korea is a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass destruction, while starving its citizens, he said.

Later that year, the country confirmed what Bush said by admitting it had been secretly conducting a nuclear-weapons program for several years and proceeded to withdraw from its agreement with the Clinton administration shortly thereafter.

By 2004, U.S. officials believed North Korea had developed between two and eight nuclear weapons.

The Six-Party Talks comprising China, North Korea, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the U.S. began in 2003 and continued over a number of years until 2009 under President Obama. In 2005, the group offered some energy and economic assistance if North Korea would give up its renewed efforts to build up its nuclear program, which Pyongyang tentatively agreed to.

But that plan didnt really hold and North Korea said it had successfully completed a nuclear test in 2006. In 2007, an agreement was reached to send $400 million worth of fuel, food and other aid in exchange for North Korea shutting down its main nuclear reactor.

Just before leaving office, Bush sent a personal letter to leader Kim Jong Il asking him to uphold his end of the bargain.


President Barack Obama

Obama had to deal with a nuclear test by North Korea in mid-2009. The U.N. Security Council quickly adopted sanctions banning arms transfers to and from the country.

Obama sent an envoy to North Korea at the end of the year, asking leader Kim Jong Il to begin denuclearization talks, but his regime didnt make any major moves toward pursuing them.

Some more progress was made in 2012 when new leader Kim Jong Un agreed to halt nuclear tests in exchange for food aid.

North Koreas pursuit of nuclear weapons continued, however.

Obamas administration put the ball in North Koreas court by outlining conditions it required before diplomatic negotiations could occur, but Jong Uns regime has maintained for years that its nuclear program is necessary for defense.

He went as far as to threaten the military might of the U.S. in 2014 as debates over true capabilities of the North continued.

Last September, after yet another nuclear test, Obama said the U.N. and members of the original Six-Party Talks would vigorously implement those resolutions and that there were consequences for North Koreas actions.

Before Obama left office, the U.S. led the U.N. Security Council to imposed sanctions on North Korea in November meant to slash its coal exports by 60 percent.

The citizens of North Korea live in extreme poverty while their leader lives a lavish life.

Isnt that the way most shiit hole countries are?

Kim Jong-un develops his nuclear weapons with a cash flow from weapons deals with other countries, cyber theft coming from Bangladesh and an enormous cash profit of illicit drug sales.

Make your next vacation destination North Korea.

OK......all politics aside, anyone my age (old) remember in elementary school doing the duck and cover in the hallways to protect us from a nuclear bomb?  As if LOL.  Saw side by side pictures today of Hiroshima............duck and cover wouldn't even have saved us from a tornado, much less nuclear fall out, no matter who was president.  Just saying.

What year were you in grade school?  What year were you born?  HR Puff N Stuff (sp)?, when it was a Sat. morning thing on TV, and then a feature at the ice rink at the Omni which, I guess may not be there anymore.  You know what, people are people.  We're not defined by politics, or some of us aren't.  Have a good night, and from what I'm hearing, tomorrow night may be brutal>

The last time I looked; which was some time ago, their advice when confronted by bigotry, lies and ignorance was to ignore it.

 

People with any concept of truth and reality do have difficulty when trying to discuss anything with those whose concept of reality is what the majority would describe as something more like a bad acid trip.

 

Of course, part of the problem is those with this bad acid trip reality are led by the biggest baddest acid trip this nation has ever had. 

 

Truly, those who see how things are going and feel comfortable with it have a distorted, even hallucinatory, understanding of what is good, true and beautiful.

I guess this was Trumps fault too


Japan's public broadcaster sent out a false alert warning of a North Korean missile on Tuesday, just three days after Hawaii residents received an erroneous message about an incoming missile.

"North Korea appears to have launched a missile ... The government urges people to take shelter inside buildings or underground," the message read, according to a translation from Reuters.

The false warning went out just before 7 p.m. in the evening, through broadcaster NHK's Japanese mobile app and website. It was corrected less than 10 minutes later.

I think a more accurate statement would be that you're "cutting into" their lying campaign. 

 

I mean I'm not one to applaud the veracity of the Fox network, but your link's headline is: 

 

Trump claims credit for what is still mostly Obama's economy

By CHRISTOPHER RUGABER

 

Published January 17, 2018

 

WASHINGTON –  President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.

But in the year since Trump's inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.

Growth has picked up, but it's not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama's last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

 

"I don't see any noticeable break over the past year," said ...

 

 

I mean, if you were 'hating' on Trump, you wouldn't go to Fox for your headlines, would you???

 

One would think that the folks are trapped 'in the good life' ... which begs the question, is this kid the young Donald Trump?
