  1. The last paragraph of the article …

    We can live safely in the knowledge that much or all of humankind won’t suddenly vanish due to a miscalculation by a radar officer in Russia or the US, and that people near missile sites won’t find themselves incinerated accidentally due to technician error. Or we can continue to have nuclear weapons. But we have to choose.

    Somehow I think I know the choice … sadly.

  2. I don’t feel confident that we have rational minds at the controls at this point. Vladi has ships just off the coast of Venezuela and asking Pinocchio to keep his nose out of the troubles there.

    • Hello lindi. Remember when this side of the world was our back yard and we kept Russia out. Now Putin tells tRump to stay out of it and tRump does. Hugs
