    Nuclear proliferation is something to be taken very seriously. Trump's careless/purposeful? words enflame the issue. The symbolic Doomsday clock does not need to get any closer than it currently is.
    Does it inflame the issue? Yes. Is it a good move? Nope. Does it move us closer to doomsday? Not even a bit. Each side already has enough to destroy the world many times over. Making more and some words won't be causing a nuclear war or making the results of one any less survivable.

    Not all wars are nuclear wars, but all nuclear wars are wars.

    Fake news, nuclear war, Israel and Pakistan. A holiday tale.

    "A false news article making the rounds on social media could potentially have had a devastating result: nuclear war. The report misquoted a former Israeli defense minister and managed to inflame one of the world's nuclear powers to the point that Pakistan's defense minister threatened to flex his country's nuclear missiles in response.

    It all began with a fake report by a site called AWD News. The article misquoted former defense minister Moshe Ya'alon as saying Israel would destroy Pakistan should it send ground forces to Syria to battle ISIS.

    Needless to say, the report was fake. But that didn't stop Pakistani Defense Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif from tweeting a not-so-veiled threat at Israel: "Israel forgets Pakistan is a Nuclear (sic) state too."

    Something Trump aims to fix.

    Does anyone remember this gem from the election cycle?

    https://www.google.com/amp/www.cnbc....android-google

    "Several months ago, a foreign policy expert on the international level went to advise Donald Trump. And three times [Trump] asked about the use of nuclear weapons. Three times he asked at one point if we had them why can't we use them," Scarborough said on his "Morning Joe" program.

    Your going to have to pardon me, but the burden of proof that Trump won't consider using them is on him. So far, he's not been very encouraging.

    Trump explicitly said nuclear war was bad and should be avoided. Trump is a bad speaker and it was clear(if you keep an open mind and actually tried to understand Trump) that Trump meant that nuclear weapons can and should be used when appropriate, such as in response to a nuclear attack by another country.

    Spoony, you do understand how utterly ridiculous you sound when you talk about how we're going to get nuked?
    Misty, do you understand how utterly foolish you sound when you try to argue everything is fine when the president elect sounds more like Kim Jong Un than a dignified statesmen right? When the bus driver is hurtling along narrow city streets at 100 MPH wearing a blindfold that is not the time to be calm.

    Hopefully he'll do us a favor and die somehow. Pence might be more effective in instituting a Regressive agenda, but at least he isn't a threat to get us killed.

    Lived through a big chunk of the Cold War; remember air-raid drills in Elementary School. Saw "Duck and Cover" -- my Middle School was a designated fallout shelter. I sometimes jokingly refer to "missing the Cold War". Real Talk? DO NOT WANT. And the number of times we came close to a Nuclear Exchange? Not Inconsiderable. The threat was definitely real; anyone who says otherwise is a fool, or never experienced the era.

    Yes, I recall Joe speaking extemperaneously about something he heard from an unnamed source that was never mentioned or verified ever again. Is that what you mean?

    The fact that you said middle-school, means we are of an age. I grew up within spitting distance of a top-5-target military installation, which means that we didn't do drills because we all understood that we would be vaporized on impact, but I remember the rhetoric too.

    But we had it easy in comparison to the boomers during the Cuba Missile Crisis. By the time we hit the right age to be concerned, the likelihood of nuclear conflict was waning. So I can forgive those that don't have the same frame of reference.

    Make you a bet. If we're hear in 4 years, you have to become an ardent Trump supporter. If not, I'll admit you were right.

    Yet. They've existed for only 70 years and two were dropped on an enemy state. Nukes can be used without making the war a "nuclear war", my little derpiny.

    I was far more willing to dismiss it before he tweeted "let it be an arms race" is all I'm saying. It certainly fits with the narrative better now...

    It is like Kasich confirming he was offered the most powerful vice-president position by one of Trump's son. It was a "rumor".
