The only way to win is to not play the game.  R vs D only differ on the lapel pin of the maniac who gets the launch codes ;-(

I don't think it is wise for any person to be able to singlehandedly detonate a nuclear weapon, but Donald Trump has demonstrated a pattern of behavior throughout his career that makes him a particularly poor choice for this unique responsibility.

No President can single handedly do anything today.  Neither Trump nor Obama (a known warmonger).  Fake news anyone?  Kennedy could do that during the Cuban Missile Crisis because the military had jury rigged the not-yet complete Minuteman launch system.  The rest of the nuclear triad was probably still under the two person rule.  In the case of the Soviets, they had a two man rule also.  Fortunately on the particular sub in question, the Soviets had the commander, as well as the captain and the commissar.  The commander (the famous one) vetoed the nuclear torpedo launch that the captain and commissar had agreed to.  After the crisis the Minuteman launch system was completed, under the two man rule.

Just say no ... if you are smart.

I think we can assume that a Hillary Clinton Administration would have had professional and experienced people in place who would have lasted more than a few months.  They would have been recognized by our allies and people they could talk to professionally, and not driving every other leader in the world into thinking we were all crazy nuts. 

Of course, they would only think that if we haven't elected a true insecure nut like Trump.

They would probably argue with Clinton as President, but, as an equal.  The world wouldn't be perfect, but it wouldn't be going into trade wars, bizarre passivity toward Russia, China ascendent in Asia by the US withdrawing, etc.

It would be a safer, more rational diplomatic world...

I am beginning to think Baruch is some sort of bot or troll.  His responses ALMOST connect to the subject, but not quite.  I would put him on "ignore", but I can't get that to work, and the Admins can't seem to solve that problem yet.

Sorry.  My account has problems too ... I keep getting notices of responses to posts from last year.  What you think doesn't matter, much, to me ... though in fact I like you.  My last response was to someone complaining about whatever President Trump's sexual proclivities are ... which I doubt anyone here as ever show anything but partisanship on ... sexual predation seems a protected behavior, if you are a D party office holder, to people here.

Come on guys, the quote 'War. War never changes.' is a sentence used in all of the Fallout computer games.

All of them are good--no, great!  I have played them all many, many times.  In total I must have dropped 10,000 hours into them combined.

Well, better you than me! :D

You must be an expert at them by now, since I've heard that to become an expert at something it takes about 10,000 hours of practice.
