Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson said on Wednesday that Americans should not be concerned about an imminent threat from North Korea, despite Trump’s threats of fire and fury.
“I think Americans should sleep well at night, have no concerns about this particular rhetoric of the last few days,” Mr. Tillerson said as his plane stopped on the way back to the United States to refuel in Guam.
The New York Times reporter said that Trump’s language was unprecedented.
Well. At least since George W. Bush’s shock and awe bombing of Baghdad.
Iraq didn’t involve the use of nuclear weapons, although upwards of a million people died in that war depending on who did the counting.
A war based on the lie of weapons of mass destruction.
Nobody lies like Trump lies. A recent poll reports that three quarters of the American people don’t believe a word Trump says.
By every estimate, if this confrontation leads to military and nuclear conflict the Iraq death toll will seem small.
We can follow Rex Tillerson’s advice and sleep well.
Is it me or have the streets seemed quiet lately?
I’m ready to join others, fill those streets with people wide awake saying, “No war!”
