The U.S President has once again given us a reason to shake our heads and bite our nails as he reminds us why everyone should be scared of Trump, and what he stands for.
A couple of days ago he went on a Twitter rant of tantrum proportions, calling out the FBI for leaking Intelligence Conversations between him and them.
The tone of the Twitter tirade had a few people worried, especially because of its vehemence. But the president’s volatility, unrepentant behaviour and lack of Twitter control isn’t why everyone should be scared of Trump.
Why everyone should be scared of Trump, truly scared, didn’t happen till 23rd of February in a conversation with Reuters.
During that interview, Trump in typical fashion wildly spouted the words, “I’m the first one that would like to see nobody have nukes… but we’re never going to fall behind any country… if countries are going to have nukes, we’re going to be at the top…”
If you see no need to be worried by this statement, then allow me to help you put things in perspective.
According to Global Zero, Russia currently has the most number of nukes in the world and it has been so for more than a decade. Over 7,000 nukes.
The next country with the most nukes is the USA, about 6,900 nukes.
Seven other countries are known to have nuclear weapons. But the third country with the most nuclear weapons, France, has a miserly 300 nukes.
That’s 6,800 difference between their arsenal and America’s!
Other countries with nukes are; China, the UK, Pakistan, India, Israel, and of course, North Korea (less than 10 nukes).
But don’t let these numbers fool you.
Russia is the country with the largest land mass, and yet, it would take less than 10 strategic nuclear strikes to turn Mother Russia into a barren uninhabitable wasteland. And I promise you the damage would still be enough to spread to neighbouring countries.
So why would a country with more than 6,000 of the most powerful nukes in the world want more, when it would take only a 100 nuclear detonations to put the whole world on the brink of destruction?
Because there’s a scary blonde ignoramus at the helm, that’s why!
Lemme give you some insight on how a typical nuclear detonation works.
According to Fox News, when a nuke goes Kaboom, it’s first and mildest step is an intense explosion of light. This is followed by heat radiation hot enough to set ablaze anything it touches within 14km. The bomb’s X-ray pulses are lethal within a 3km range. Then comes the mushroom cloud… …a beautiful, awe-inspiring sight of death – rising and radiating heat. From 80km away, the sight of the mushroom cloud can lead to permanent blindness.
The blast force of the explosion, like thunder after lightning, comes next. Knocking down houses and breaking windows at up to 30km away. Causes of death from an initial nuclear detonation can range between blast radiation and flying masonry.
Then comes the best and worst part – Radiation Fallout. This will rise with the mushroom cloud and then rain down slowly. And its effects which range from death of people to sickness of the land and survivors will last for generations.
Are you scared now?
A 100 megaton nuke will destroy and poison everything within 80km of its detonation. And that’s not counting where wind will blow its fallout material.
Trump has 6,800 of those at his beck and call. And now he wants more. MORE!!!
If you aren’t scared yet, you better start thinking about what will be left of the world if someone pushes the wrong buttons on Trump.
A quarter of his current nuclear arsenal is over enough to render the earth a marble of death. It wouldn’t even be blue anymore after a nuclear holocaust.
I know Russia has more nukes than America, but I’m pointing fingers at Trump (leader of the free world) because no other country but North Korea is talking abut using nukes, and we know what kinda psycho the Korean leader is.
I’m sincerely hoping the resemblance between Kim Jong-un and Trump is strictly facial because any psychological resemblance and humans might need to relocate to Mars.
WHY DOES THE WORLD HAVE 15,000 NUKES ANYWAY!?
IT’S NOT LIKE ALL OF IT CAN BE USED BEFORE THERE’S NOTHING LEFT TO KILL ON THIS PLANET…
