Especially in North Korea.
Well, maybe. According to Norks, they managed to test a hydrogen bomb yesterday, but the international community is doubtful as is our administration. This is North Korea we are talking about, after all. They are given to lying about everything. Then again, they have been rather eager to bomb the hell out of something.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is cutting diplomatic ties with Iran after Iran decided to torch their embassy in Tehran (shades of ’79) in response to Saudis executing a cleric. So in the blue corner we have a so-called ally who hates us about to go 12 rounds with an enemy in the red corner who hates us AND has nuclear capabilities. Good thing I hate hummus and can sit back with popcorn and bourbon.
And if that were not enough explodey for y’all, we had a Blackhawk Down situation in Helmand province, Afghanistan. Extraction was successful, but a team remains in place to protect the downed helicopter. I don’t see how this could possibly have happened, seeing as our Prez declared the wars have been ended. But it did.
Of all the tense scenarios going on, the one catching Sauron’s attention is the Middle East. Lines, real ones, are being drawn while this administration chooses the next item on the Legacy Agenda while wiping copious tears on live TV. Let’s face it: Prez is more interested in smoke and mirrors than smoking craters. I wish he would go back to the golf course and stay there until January, 2017.
