Yes, North Korea is a nuclear state adding to the world’s stockpile of nuclear weapons straining to get free and complete the mandate of the universe — all creation at some point in time must be offset by destruction. The time is already past due for the offset of humankind’s marvelous creations.

We should not kid ourselves into thinking that just because by incredible good luck humanity has yet to incinerate itself that such luck will hold out for much longer.

The universal law of probability balance is not on our side. Those in the know have long understood that it’s only a matter of time before some minor technical glitch or some fool politician like Trump will touch off a chain reaction of the world’s stockpile of coiled nuclear hell — the end.
