Trump Atomic War Warning

First we have Trump cautioning North Korea that their threats “will be met with fire & fury like the world has never seen” & then we have confirmed reports that North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead designed to fit inside its missiles. In reaction to this unfolding crisis Derek Johnson, Executive Director of Global Zero, the international movement for the elimination of nuclear weapons stated, “Kim Jong-un’s nuclear capabilities are coming into alignment with his rhetoric. The situation on the Korean peninsula has evolved into a full-blown crisis & the Trump administration needs to immediately come to grips with that. That means putting an end to the President’s escalatory bravado & immediately opening a direct line of communication with Pyongyang, without preconditions. Talking risks nothing; not talking risks everything. The public must come to grips with the gravity of this crisis, too. We’ve got two nuclear-armed megalomaniacs facing off & no reason to expect cooler heads will prevail. When Trump promises ‘fire and fury,’ remember he has unfettered authority to make good on that threat. The nuclear briefcase follows him everywhere. At any moment he can pick up the phone & order a nuclear strike. The system designed to execute that order was built for blind deference & speed; we shouldn’t pin any hopes on having ‘an adult in the room.’ Neither his subordinates nor Congress can stop him.”
