“Fire and Fury” was not invented by Donald Trump. It is a concept deeply embedded in US military doctrine. It has characterized US military interventions since the end of World War II.  

We are at a dangerous crossroads. Foreign policy miscalculation could lead to the unthinkable. We recall the  circumstances of the Cuban Missile Crisis, fifty-five years ago in October 1962.” 

What distinguishes October 1962 to today’s realities is that the leaders on both sides, namely namely John F. Kennedy and Nikita S. Khrushchev were accutely aware of the dangers of nuclear annihilation. Moreover the nuclear doctrine was entirely different. Both Washington and Moscow understood the realities of mutually assured destruction.

In contrast, president Donald Trump is not only misinformed on the dangers of nuclear war, “We will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea” accusing Kim Jong Un, of being a “rocket man” on “a suicide mission.” (Michel Chossudovsky, October 29017)
