The majority of this blog’s readers are Americans. I’m wondering: Are you worried about the seemingly increasing possibility of war with North Korea?

Or do you think the rhetoric of Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump is nothing more than that?

At least one major newscaster in Canada has been suggesting that the United States and North Korea are dangerously close to all-out war.

If it happens, there will be worldwide repercussions along with the loss of many innocent lives.

Personally, I can’t see the U.S. striking the first blow, but I can see the North Korean leader ordering missiles launched at America in the hope that a surprise strike could in itself win the war.

Whatever the case may be, unless the tension between the two nations isn’t eased soon, expect financial markets to implode.

Meanwhile, how much longer will Donald Trump be U.S. president? Do you think he will be impeached soon? Will he step down?

And what do you think of the widening anthem protests at sports events? Will they serve to hasten Trump’s departure from the White House?
