Nuclear anxiety grows with North Korea standoff

Anxiety over nuclear weapons is rising as President Trump deals with growing volatility on the Korean peninsula.

Trump’s past statements in support of a buildup of nuclear weapons, combined with North Korea’s increasingly bellicose rhetoric, have stoked fears about how the situation will unfold.

“I think there’s a cycle of concern and anxiety that comes when North Korea is conducting tests,” said Alexandra Bell, senior policy director at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation. “But I do think there’s a little more concern now because this administration has a different approach to dealing with and talking about North Korea.”

The president’s unpredictability has sharpened the public’s attention on the standoff, with fears of a nuclear crisis made evident by nervous posts to social media and gallows humor on “Saturday Night Live.”

    Kim Jong Un would be wise to close his nuclear operations down and spend his energy trying to feed his people and lead them out of poverty. Maybe Kim should work to make North Korea great again. Such a goal would involve him abandoning a game of chicken which he will ultimately lose.

    Saturday Night Live is nothing but a piece of shi-. They think all this is fun and funny. It isn’t. Having the President trying to do what is best for America with a holes doing all they can to have him do wrong. When they are pushing the President to do wrong is nothing but their fault. Trying to make a skirmish into a nucular war. Just so Trump will fail. Well that failure that they produced might just be their last along with others also. It just show how rotten to the core some of these people are in trying to get a laugh. Instead they are riduclued. Life isn’t funny when it can possibly take a life. They (NK) are trying to make it look like the US is the cause of this but we the US has not made any kind of threats like NK has and is still doing. We don’t want a war but MR. MOUTH does for some odd reason. He is nothing but a loose cannon. waiting for his fuse to burn down. During all this the US waits for him to pop his cork and then it is all over with. We the USA has so many things in waiting for this idiot to do something. If he doesn’t, it is as we expect. Nothing but hot air.

    Kim can’t even have a successful missile test. If he tried to fire a nuke he would nuke himself. What’s to worry?
