Not to mention the turkey and Syria thing going on as well now with clashes possible between NATO members if that gets out of hand, there is a lot going on round the planet that could easily put that clock to midnight at the moment, very worrying times ahead I believe.what with the USA vs North Korea thing I cant say i'm surprised.
It's just a pity that this breath of fresh air stinks like s**t. The only reason that he had any chance at all was that he was running against the hated Hillary. It was a 50/50 split over which bad choice America accepted. (A bit like our UK politics at the moment, nothing but self serving arse holes as far as the eye can see)he's no diplomat that's for sure, he says it like it is, which after years of career presidents is like a breath of fresh air.
i totally agree with you, it is a breath of fresh air, if all politician's took his approach and stopped beating about the bush, the world may not be in the state it is now, I am a Trump fanhe's no diplomat that's for sure, he says it like it is, which after years of career presidents is like a breath of fresh air.
That is my sentiment exactly. The world is run by a bunch of (insert your favourite insult here) and we delude ourselves if we think the ordinary man in the street holds any sway over what happens. I've reached an age where I don't really care what's happening in the wider world, because there is precious little I can do about it. It might affect me, it might not. Either way I'm simply buggering on and doing my best to reduce the impact of world events on me and mine.An american poster on another forum I use summed it up by saying there was a feeling that with Trump there could be a war , with Clinton there would be a war. As a complete outsider it appears to me as if neither party actually wanted to win and put up their worrst candidates.
But whichever politician or country has caused the clock to tick a few more seconds is largely immaterial , being on the "right" side or the "wrong" side isn't going to make anyone more or less at risk. Best any of us can do is to just keep on preparing for ourselves. Am I going to start building a bunker , no , am I going to continue planting my garden and maintaining my stores , yes.
