America’s most famous ex-CIA op fears Trump blunder will ignite nuclear war

Valerie Plame speaks:

When the most famous ex-CIA spy alive is concerned about the world blowing up, there’s probably something worrisome in that.

Sure, this is the kind of fretting Valerie Plame Wilson has been doing since her cover was famously blown in 2003 by an operative of President George W. Bush’s administration. But as she dashed through San Francisco last week to speak at a cyberterrorism conference, Plame said she sees the country heading into a dangerously unstable period that just might result in disaster involving her No. 1 concern of the past several years:

Nuclear bombs.

Blame it on President Trump, his reckless ways, and the “low-quality people he surrounds himself with,” she said.

“What I find most concerning about him is his access to the nuclear command and control structure,” Plame said the other day over breakfast at a diner before delivering a speech to the RSA 2017 Conference on international security. “We’re still deciding whether to take Trump literally or seriously. But during the campaign he made comments about ‘So what if Japan gets a nuclear weapon,’ and intimating that a nuclear strike is not out of the question.

“He is so casual and reckless. Impulsive, to say the least. This is a man who gets riled up by a tweet. Is this the guy you want to make nuclear decisions?”

    Someone thinks a bumbling bloviating buffoon might might blunder and start a war … come on, you can almost count on that happening. It’s all just a matter of time. If we don’t want him starting a war, we need to remove him.

    Overlapping text on this site is happening most of the time for me.. I use a chromebook – doesn’t matter how i change my font size.. it stays the same.. overlapped.

      I use the Chrome browser, but on a desktop, and I don’t have this issue. Maybe the site just isn’t compatible with Chrombook. Are you able to use a different browser?

      Try a system reboot or if the problem is fairly recent reset to a saved date.
      I’d say uninstall chrome and download a new version but I’m not sure you can do that with a Chromebook.
      Good luck

      I am passing on your comment to our developer. That’s an odd problem, as the site is using a responsive theme that is supposed to be super-well-behaved with Chrome and Firefox.

      I’m on a Chromebook, two actually and I don’t have this issue. An acer 10.8 inch and an HP 13 inch, default font size. I’ll play around and see if I can duplicate.

    Congress are the only ones that can Declare war…they are the ones who fund the wars…trump should not be allowed to write checks our nation cannot/will not cash…War is one of them…trump has put us in this position with his stupidity, and the republicans have allowed and encouraged this…If we survive to this summer, trump will have declared martial law, and declared war on Iran….This is where the First and Second Amendments may be needed….
