Gorbachev is worried about possible nuclear war.

The potential war is definitely seeming more like a reality every single day.

From Yahoo News

Moscow (AFP) – Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev warned on Monday that the world has reached a “dangerous point” as tensions between Russia and the United States spike over the Syria conflict.

And yet the average person hasn’t got a clue about any of this at all. It’s blatantly in our faces, and yet nobody is talking about it. There’s probably more people in the world right now who are still talking about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt breaking up, or about Kim Kardashian having millions of dollars worth of Jewelry taken from her in an armed robbery recently, than about issues like this which actually matter.

My own theory is that Kanye organised the robbery himself, so that he could claim the insurance money for the jewelry, and then fence the “stolen” jewels on the black market. Just kidding, I doubt he would be bright enough to think of a plan like that. Also, who the fuck cares anyway? It’s not an important issue.

Relations between Moscow and Washington — already at their lowest since the Cold War over the Ukraine conflict — have soured further in recent days as the United States pulled the plug on Syria talks and accused Russia of hacking attacks.

Yeah, they’ve accused Russia of being involved in some crazy conspiracy alongside Donald Trump, Wikileaks, and internet trolls, to try and rig the election in favour of Trump. At least, I think that’s the claim that they’ve made. I’m not sure exactly, because it’s all so ridiculous, that it’s hard to really comprehend what they’re saying. Also, as far as I can see so far, they’ve offered absolutely no evidence to back up their claims about Russia yet. They may very well be telling the truth, and Russia really could be trying to rig their election, but until they provide evidence, I’m inclined not to believe them, seeing as they’ve lied so many times in the past.

These are the “deplorables”, who are working tirelessly to undermine American democracy. It’s real because the Hillary campaign says so, and they would never lie… except for all those times in the past that they have.

The Kremlin has suspended a series of nuclear pacts, including a symbolic cooperation deal to cut stocks of weapons-grade plutonium.

Yeah, something I addressed in a recent post. Symbolic or not, I don’t see this as being a good thing, not in the slightest.

“I think the world has reached a dangerous point,” Gorbachev, 85, told state news agency RIA Novosti.

“I don’t want to give any concrete prescriptions but I do want to say that this needs to stop. We need to renew dialogue. Stopping it was the biggest mistake.”

I agree that they need to renew dialogue, and that’s why we need to see Trump win, because we sure won’t see it happen if Hillary wins.

As the last leader of the Soviet Union, Gorbachev oversaw an easing of decades of tensions with the West that helped to end the Cold War.

He signed several landmark nuclear disarmament deals with Washington aimed at defusing the standoff between the two superpowers.

“It is necessary to return to the main priorities. These are nuclear disarmament, the fight against terrorism, the prevention of an environmental disaster,” he said.

“Compared to these challenges, all the rest slips into the background.”

I completely agree with the last part. Nothing else matters as much as preventing a potential global war from happening. I don’t care how many politically incorrect things Trump has said in the past. I don’t care about any of the manufactured scandals against him. And I certainly don’t care if he goes through with his plan to put an end to illegal immigration. What I care about, is preventing millions of lives (perhaps even hundreds of millions if nuclear weapons are used) from being lost in a pointless and unwanted conflict. That should be the most important issue of all to any sane person right now, and anyone who thinks they have the moral high ground because they think Trump is worse for saying mean words, is a fucking moron.
