Scary, the nuclear saber rattling? Well, first calm down. Understanding about what’s going on may save you your sanity, calmness and money.
North Korea wants to establish itself as a nuclear nation. Nothing anyone can do about it. Yet, if they would use them they would be wiped off the map, so what’s the danger here? It’s just racism: non-Whites can’t be rational. (Yet, the only danger lies with the erratic unpredictable White US president.)
The US administration tries to exploit the idea of an outside enemy to foster unity inside the US, needed for passing their financial schemes – especially tax cuts for the super-rich.
The parties are talking behind the scenes, so don’t worry. How do I know that they’re in constant diplomatic contact? Trump said it himself: we’re not talking with them. One doesn’t have to be a psychology or political science buff to understand that that means that they are.
The purposely vague US rejection of “just talking” does not imply war acts. Sanctions too are not “just talking.” “The United States stands ready to use its nuclear capabilities” can mean: its capabilities to shoot down North-Korean nuclear ballistic missiles.
The main joint objectives of the macho leaders here are: 1. To pump money into weaponry for profit of the super-rich, and 2. To save face. With less greed and less of an ego we’d have less problems.
Every time the US government says: nuclear threat, just shout: fake news.
Meanwhile, when the fox preacheth, then beware your geese: as long as you hear a roll of drums with “we’re busy keeping you safe,” assume that to be a distraction from the super-rich reaching into the National Treasury. Let the voter beware!
