Try not to watch the news but sometimes i accidentally catch something. The latest being N Korea has a missile thought to be able to reach Washington. The latest test fire was successful. Bloody hell, is it worth planning for Christmas, Can anyone offer any reassurance, i feel very unsettled and quite scared.
I may be catastrophically wrong but I'm actually more worried about drones being used to drop bombs or diseases on the public by terrorists as that seems more likely. I don't think kim is insane enough to actually fire a missile at the US.
No I don't think either Jong Un or Trump has any intention of firing anything (and also suspect those around them pulling the puppet strings are likely to block it should they every take it upon themselves to think "fuckit, I'm killing the lot of them").
What worries me more is the damage Trump is doing in other ways. The fact that America has seen several high-profile sackings amidst the Weinstein scandal but allows it's Commander In Chief to remain in office despite many, many allegations against him. How? How on earth can anyone trust or rely on someone so wholly devoted to serving himself?
To do any serious damage with drones you'd need a very large number of them or some very big ones. Accumulation of either would be likely to attract the attention of the spooks. Not saying it couldn't happen, but it's not that likely IMHO
Quite possibly but we can’t waste our energies worrying about the risks over which we have no control. Risk perception is a funny thing. We have a tendency to worry about nuclear strikes but not the risks right in front of our nose. For instance the risk of cancer associated with obesity, smoking and alcohol. Those we CAN do something about. FWIW I’m a non smoker with normal BMI but I like a drink
