More Terrifying Still . . .

Read a Guardian article this morning, something I was alerted to over at TPM. While we've been caught up in all the smokscreening, gas lighting and other confusions, Trumpty-Dump and his sycophants are concocting a witches brew, taking us back to a Cold War footing.

Of particular concern, not only to us but the world at large, is a draft document, a Nuclear Posture Review presented to the Orange Sun King in September.

Once you go to the article--link provided below--check out paragraph 3. This pops out:

" . . .language governing conditions in which the US would use nuclear weapons and investments aimed at reducing the time it would take the US to prepare a nuclear test."

Makes me feel I've taken a ride in the way-back machine. But not that far back when we're changing language to justify something unthinkable. If you'll recall, Bush & Co. changed the language to justify what constituted and justified torture, the use of which had been deemed a war crime for decades.

This Posture Review draft is targeted to be spiffed up and completed by the end of the year. It should be called the Crispy Critter Review because that's what this maniac is pushing the world towards.

Mueller can't work fast enough. As Rachel Maddow has warned countless times: 'We cannot afford to simply pay attention to what these people say. Pay attention to what they do.'
