I think you didn't watch the last season of "The Remaining," which played out that scenario.

Ah, dammit, not "The Remaining," it was "The Leftovers."

If you think Trump would launch nukes on a whim why wouldn't you think he could cut a mf'er?

Even a good idea can get panned as a bad one when it originates from someone with a lack of credibility...and being the guy who advised Jimmy Carter on the Iranian Hostage Crisis ain't a ringing endorsement for credibility. I can see what the guy is trying to do, but the effectiveness of his ideas has empirical evidence to suggest they don't work.

I for one am glad that our President could take a break from golfing yesterday to threaten nuclear war. /s

Yes Barry. We're the worst people who have ever lived. We wish that we had never existed.

what if the volunteer also felt the nuclear option was the correct choice? He could kill himself when they agreed the time was right.
What if POTUS turned to an aide and said "I need that code." Then the aide could take the guy into the next room and remove the code.
I mean, if we're what iffing...

What's the difference between the nuclear situation and conventional war where thousands, tens of thousands, millions of lives are at stake? Is there a scale that weighs the amount of lives lost versus the means of their deaths? Or is the determining factor the amount of time it takes to wipe them out?

I trust that President Kim can find a diplomatic solution to diffuse tensions between him and the madman with nuclear weapons.

Does anyone here think we should allow N Korea to take the first shot?

My exact thoughts. Trump is not creating the situation on acting on the threat.

If I miss this putt...I'm launching TNWs on N. Korea...

Why do people assume that the U.S. would use nuclear weapons, when other weapons and technologies are more effective; and don't have the lingering impacts? Going with atomic bombs today are the equivalent of bringing a knife to a gunfight.

I think the article is completely stupid, because it assumes that a President has no concept of the value of a human life or the gravity of his decisions. Think General Eisenhower, when becoming President, needed a "life lesson" from this Roger Fisher, or do you suppose that the Supreme Commander in World War II had a clue about "what death is"? When he's standing at another school shooting funeral, I don't think this guy needs to train Obama about the value of a life. You think a President that stands on the smoldering grounds of two destroyed skyscrapers has an idea about the value of a life as he's standing there actually smelling death? With some notable exceptions, we don't need to educated a President about death.

Trump is not afraid to use the mother of all bombs. A few hundred terrorists in Pakistan were unavailable for comment.

2:34, You sound like the one that needs educated.

How about if Trump picks Kellyanne Conway?

Uhhhh. The difference is the end of the world.

Thank God Truman killed thousands so that thousands of our troops could live.

Or....we could send Brandon Davis over there, and have him take out Kim Jong from the nearest water tower.

I hope you realize to equat the MOAB with even the Little Boy from 1945 is laughable when talking about the energy of each.

SpanishWarJackAss, I wasn't equating anything.

One change: Implant it in the chest of the President. The President then orders his loyal aide to plunge the knife to get the code and give it to military aide to transmit. Then the President is forced to lay down his/her life to kill millions in a flash. Seems fair to me.

This scenario got played out in the best show ever written, never to be watched. Cool to find out where the wroters got the concept for the episode.

The leftovers season 3 episode 7:

"The most powerful man in the world."

It's nice to know we have a president who is willing to conduct nuclear annihilation to distract from his grotesque treason. #maga!

Keep using the term "raided" in regards to the FBI. They served a search warrant several weeks ago. Everyone was cooperative, nobody spit on their own floor. It only hit the news this week and "raided" sounds so much better than "searched".
