Donald Trump has said the US may may have no choice but to “totally destroy” North Korea. In his first address to the UN General Assembly – and with North Korean diplomats sitting just yards from him – Mr Trump said he will have no option to resort to such actions if Pyongyang does not halt the development of its nuclear weapons programme. In perhaps the most striking piece of sabre-rattling yet, Mr Trump said that unless North Korea backed down, “we will have no choice than to totally destroy North Korea”.
This is so true, however, I believe the main religion may go on for ever, depending how long ever is, for with the current climate of one upmanship in many areas of the World being, West, East, Middle East, Far East and any others the future as we know it may not last as long as we hope for. In that the relentless quest for power by a good few of the World’s leaders and some aspiring leaders could well mean that the future could be short lived. Then what will their quest for power bring them and their communities, but do they really care as the driven quest for their own power extinguishes all others.
Unfortunately all you state has little chance of happening, now or the long-term future, unless the populace achieve what is currently seeming impossible.
The last point ‘To prevent future atrocities you have to treat the cause of the disease not merely the symptoms!’ is particularly relevant, but all are as well, but if you could achieve all these others, they will not be able to continue until you concentrate on the disease as well as the symptoms.
Take radicalisation, why are the people who are radicalised open to this action, unfortunately there will not be a common theme.
They could not have the will to resist.
They could have problems which are leaving down and open to be corrupted
There will be others, but all need to be identified and then appropriate action to minimise these areas and ideally create situations where they cannot manifest.
Take the UK, people are marginalised either into ethnic communities and do not forget that a white community is just as good or bad as any other community. Just because it may be the majority, in not a reason to discount it. We need to accept that in many ways we are all equal, however, some are more equal than others and there could be a root of the problem. Again the area of power is brought to the fore for power comes in many guises wealth is one, position is another, and in many respects the creation of some communities could be another, perhaps the list could be endless.
Religion and politics are two main causes, but they are not there alone, for if they were not there others would be created.
It could be within the makeup of the Human Race to which we all belong. If we were all created in Gods own image, then there is then no hope, so could the evolution theory have a better way forward, as this would mean that change will come, but not in our lifetime, that is if there is to be another lifetime.
So we have to ask is there really time for change to come forth.
A very complicated subject, but is certainly there for scrutiny and research. But then could the scrutiny and research be slanted with the human frailties.
This could go on and on and then come full circle, Oh, what a complicated Society or Societies we are in.
Terrorism has become the scourge of our age.
Too many people have hearts full of hatred and arrogant righteousness.
Too many are indoctrinated into stupid beliefs.
Too many are exploited and manipulated into hatred, self-sacrifice and intolerance.
It is too easy to manufacture bombs and get hold of weapons.
Too many people seek power through perverse religion and politics.
There is far too much ignorance and superstition.
The world is far to unequal.
There are too many people, too little work and so little hope.
Too many live in overcrowded poverty and hopelessness.
The terrorists want to divide, spread fear and destabilise so that they can sneak into the vacuum and inflict their religious or political aims.
The men behind it are never killing themselves.
It is all about power, not beliefs or doctrine – power. The people who organise, radicalise and induce the hatred and barbarity want to be…

Surely a conflict of interest, but then Trump can not understand this concept, hence bringing Ivanka into his administration. This is a case open to corruption on a large scale, will America survive.
If ExxonMobil’s top executive is appointed to run the State Department, he will be running an agency his company has repeatedly lobbied in recent years.
Under Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson, who is expected to be nominated Donald Trump’s secretary of state, the oil colossus has directly lobbied the State Department on everything from sanctions against Russia and Iran to climate policy to the Trans-Pacific partnership and other controversial trade deals. An IBT review of federal records shows Exxon has been listed as lobbying the State Department on 20 separate government disclosure forms since the beginning of the Obama administration in 2009. The forms list a combined $43 million worth of total Exxon spending on lobbying, though not all of that was spent specifically lobbying the department that Tillerson would run.
Tillerson has mocked investments in renewable energy and has downplayed the effects of…

The worst is yet to come.
I’m not a good predictor of the future, but I’ll risk some predictions about the Trump administration.
I don’t think Donald Trump is a new Hitler, despite his manifest contempt for legal and Constitutional limitations. Rather I see a Trump administration as another step downward on a path the USA already is on.
In terms of policy, I don’t see a great difference between him and Vice-President Mike Pence, Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell or House Speaker Paul Ryan. The objection of mainstream Republicans to Trump was more an objection to his vulgarity and offensive behavior rather than to his policy positions.
Nor, for that matter, do I see any great difference between establishment Republicans and establishment Democrats on the issues that concern me most—war and peace, civil liberties and Wall Street dominance.
I do think the working-class and middle-class people who voted for Trump will be disappointed.

The “Access Hollywood” and Howard Stern tapes have inspired a search for more damning video.
Before the locker room, there was the dressing room.
Cherie Blair has made her living by acting on situations regarding Human Rights abuses, perhaps she could consider acting in this, for I am sure she would be able to act for the defence and also the accused.
The Blairs are famous for their greed, not sure who is worst Tony or Cherie. I can always remember the occasion when a shop granted Cherie to pick some items for gratis and she proceeded to virtually clear all the shelves.
I can not stand either of the Blairs and I pray for the day when justice is brought to bear on them.
A religion is your own belief and should not be forced onto others, whichever religion you believe in.
I wasn’t planning on posting anything about a certain issue here in the U.S. but I will now. A clerk in the state of Kentucky refused to give out marriage licenses to same gender couples, stating it was against her religion. From my understanding she was then told specifically by the courts not to interfere with her employees passing the licenses out.
As a Christian I am to follow the law of the land as long as it does not keep me from following the Word of God.
Apparently the court actually gave the woman a way out. Although she was the head clerk and in charge and was supposed to sign the licenses, they said she didn’t have to. She simply needed to stay out of the way and not issue them herself.
She chose instead to do something a Christian is not to do. She forced HER Christian…
