Starting nuclear war is president's decision alone

13 August 2017

There was likely more to the decision to land on the tiny USA territory than just a need to refill the tank, however: Less than 24 hours prior, North Korea had threatened to nuke the island after President Trump spouted off some incendiary and completely careless comments about raining down "fire and fury" on the isolated dictatorship, and so somebody needed to calm everybody the fuck down and reassure the world we're not on the brink of nuclear warfare.

Mr. Trump did order a review of USA nuclear posture and strategy early in his presidency, but that's different from modernization and bringing old systems up to usable standards. "It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before" - is the latest act of brinkmanship between the US and North Korea.

Trump went on to say, "Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world".

The credit really lies with former President Obama and defense hawks in Congress who funded the work, especially during a time when the federal budget is subject to spending limits. This morning, following yesterday's criticism of his "fire and fury" comments, President Trump continued his unsafe rhetoric towards North Korea.

But he never talked about plans to use in upcoming electric truck technology Autonomous driving. Musk confirmed of Tesla working on heavy-duty electric trucks in one of his tweets in June.

This is why it's quite ironic that in an effort to intimidate North Korea, President Trump seems to be telling some tall tails of his own.

Rubio's defense of the President's comments is at odds with the opinions of some of his colleagues in the Senate - including Republicans - who criticized Trump for the harsh rhetoric.

Humphrey said that Donald Trump should be relieved of the powers of the Presidency as soon as possible.

Newsweek asked Stephen Schwartz, an independent nuclear weapons expert and editor/co-author of the book Atomic Audit, if Trump's tweets Wednesday morning were true.

Motorists should be on the lookout for school buses
While bus drivers and students are well-versed in bus safety, officials hope others on the roads will be just as cautious. Drivers who illegally pass a school bus and are seen by law enforcement can be pulled over and issued a moving violation.

The president's retweets about his rhetoric Tuesday come as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was urging calm.

North Korea hit back hours later, saying it is ready to carry out an attack near the USA island of Guam. Three U.S. officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the United States had not moved additional assets into the region after North Korea's threats against Guam.

In an interview with BBC radio, Gorka reacted to a statement by Tillerson that a conflict with the isolated communist state was not imminent and that "Americans should sleep well at night".

A senior administration official who deals with the Korea issue said the "fire and fury" comment, which was Trump's strongest warning yet for North Korea and which he delivered to reporters in New Jersey, was "unplanned and spontaneous".

Also, as part of ongoing studies of these devices ordered by the FDA, the agency will measure their safety and effectiveness. A typical stomach has a gastric volume of 900 ml, and the inflated balloon occupies a volume around 700 ml.
