Double Negative examines the current state of affairs between the United States and North Korea. Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un's images are merged together reflecting the chaos of madman events. The nuclear rhetoric exchanges between the leaders of the United States and North Korea is escalating. President Donald Trump's and Kim Jong-un's rhetoric seems to be drawn from a "horror" Hollywood script.
Jeremy Suri/Wired Magazine wrote on 10-8-17 "The paradox of American nuclear power is that the nation’s overwhelming arsenal is almost unusable. The damage created by a single nuclear strike would be so great, it would undermine most American strategic purposes. The public revulsion, even from Washington’s closest allies, would make the United States a global outcast. And American nuclear action would justify others contemplating the same, tearing apart 50 years of global non-proliferation efforts."
