''Let it be an arms race'', says President-elect Donald Trump

Donald Trump has reportedly said ‘‘let it be an arms race,’‘ the day after he called for the US to strengthen and expand its nuclear capability.

 

The President-elect is said to have made the comment in an interview with MSNBC which had sought clarification over Thursday’s tweet in which he threatened a major ramping up of the US’s atomic arsenal.

 

Earlier, Trump’s transition team released a letter they say was sent from the Kremlin.

 

The soon to be president said ‘‘a very nice letter from Vladimir Putin, his thoughts are so correct.

 

The Russian leader, who had also called on Thursday for his country to boost its own atomic weapons capability, said earlier he saw nothing unusual in Trump’s pledge to increase America’s nuclear forces.

Follow the money folks. Got to wonder what company interests both leaders hold. Play nice with each other while continuing an arms race to funnel money to certain military companies. Seems like a win-win for them.

The Full quote for more context:

 

Quote

"Let it be an arms race because we will outmatch them at every pass and outlast them all," Trump said, reported MSNBC's Morning Joe.

 

And of course the ridiculous 'morning joe' skit with the anchors in their pajamas feigning shock. Beyond dumb. 

 

 

The response was coming from this tweet:

And Mika Brzezinski from MSNBC asked him to clarify this tweet, privately, over the phone, in a conversation for witch we have no context and only get this one 'soundbite' from some news anchors in their pajamas.

Sure, why not a new arms race to supplement the never-ending- war as a profit making enterprise for the few. It is easy once you have convinced the deplorable masses that the deficit does not come from military spending accompanied by lower taxes on the war profiteers.

This is like a badly scripted SNL skit.  The producer would toss it out saying, "come on guys, this dialogue is too silly.  It's got to be at least a tiny bit believable to be witty or funny.  This stuff is too outlandish.  Go and re-write it so it's at least remotely believable."

 

The one good thing about a nuclear battle is:  Less humans = a respite for the many species which are being wiped out by humans (most notably, the Chinese with their insatiable lust for exotic animal parts).

a poem by Robert Frost:
 
"Some say the world will end in fire / Some say in ice. 
From what I’ve tasted of desire / I hold with those who favor fire. 
But if it had to perish twice / I think I know enough of hate 
To say that for destruction ice  /  Is also great and would suffice.
 
Note to Frost:  We've got a nuclear-loving, quick-to-anger dufus in charge of the US now.  You may want to update your poem to suppose the world will end in fire.

Well, Obama tried to kowtow and appease many rouge nations and enemies of the state, and look where it got him, ( more like got us ) he got Syria, ISIL,

wars everywhere, and the Arabs and Muslims don't like the US any more than in Bush time, so let Trump try his methods and will all see how will they work for him/us.....

Money is part of the equation.  In my view, just as important is comparative penis size.  Trump gives new meaning to "if you play with fire, you may get burned."   

 

Hey, where can I invest in nuclear bombs?  Are they traded on the Wall Street Exchange?  Also:  bomb shelters, packaged food (for long term), burn wards, concrete & steel (everything will have to be re-built after a nuclear battle).  I would invest in insurance companies, but they too may be wiped off the map.

 

Trump should be given a bunch of large fire crackers (and a few hand grenades), and allowed to stroll around the White House lawn, popping them off.  Maybe that would relieve some of his need to blow things up.
