IT HAS BEEN pretty scary to watch Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un of North Korea trade insults and threats over the past few months.
The question of which one of them has the biggest ego and wants to be first to push the button of no return has been, I’m sure, the subject of much betting in the bookies’ lairs throughout the continent.
We have two leaders, both of whom are capable of taking a chance on a third World War. But these past few days, an even scarier situation has arisen. How is it possible that, not one, but two false alerts have been triggered, indicating that a bomb had been launched by North Korea, first to Hawaii and secondly to Japan?
It is hard to believe that these kinds of things can happen.
