Sort of an Attention Grabbing headline – “No possibility of nuclear war”…
Most Americans have little, if any, knowledge of what’s going on in that part of the World. Our “Media” continues to be way caught up on the political crap and, as such, most of the American public know nothing about what is going on elsewhere.
The continuing crisis in Venezuela has been discussed, but only as a side bar and as a way to “club” political enemies. Now that bodies of protestors are showing up they might give it some attention – but only when protests are occurring.
For my part, I’ve been watching both areas more closely. Lots of Infectious Diseases in those areas and, particularly Venezuela, said diseases are spreading rapidly to the surrounding areas. Said diseases will eventually make it here and everyone will just be SO SURPRISED! Sort of like the ongoing outbreaks of Hepatitis A and Measles – who knew?
The Nuclear War part – well I just don’t want to even go there. India and Pakistan have had nukes for decades and, with their hatred of each other, people who actually think have worried about that for almost as long.

I’m hoping there won’t be to many bodies in both areas, but it is going to get messy.
Hopefully, no “Mushroom” Clouds in Southwest Asia either!
