Escape from L.A.
C.I.A. director George Tenet just confirmed that the North Koreans have the ability, as of right now, to drop a nuke on the West Coast of the United States.
And I can say, right here, right now, in this moment, I became afraid.
I mean, afraid that there is a very real nuclear crisis blowing up in our faces that the President is just hoping will go away so he can go kill a dictator for Daddy. I'm afraid that they're stubborn arrogance to deal with the North Koreans could result in a disaster of unspeakable proportions, and not just because yours truly would get vaporized in the first salvo. After all, if the North Koreans start going nuclear, and we respond in kind, don't you think those itchy trigger fingers in Pakistan & India are going to start scratching?
You'll have to excuse me while I start making my peace with my maker.
