For over 30 minutes, the USA believed it was under ballistic missile attack.
Yet nothing happened.
Thank goodness the calm, calculating Trump was President.
Hillary probably would have ceded Hawaii and Guam to North Korea together with a plane load of cash.

Over 35 minutes for the mistake to be reversed by the government agency. This and other terror attacks on America's safety and peace of mind are intentional collusion between Democrat sleepers in government and news outlets like ABC and CBS. ABC and CBS lost no time in finding a lunatic woman, who claims to have hid her children under a blanket out of fear of the two unhinged leaders in the world, one of them Trump. So, a Democrat lunatic inspired terror assault on civilians is rationalized by ABC and others as a rational response to their unhinged accusations toward the President, simply because they lost an election.

Back when I was a child we had fallout shelters stocked for people for two weeks away from destruction. We had warning sirens they tested every Friday at 11:00 am. We had Duck and Cover.

During the Cuban missile crisis, my dad, prepared the center of the house for a two week stay in.

We, as a nation, are unprepared for a nuclear attack. Why, because it is unthinkable? If unthinkable, why has Russia rebuilt their bomb shelter system, as we have done nothing. Ah, maybe we are expendable.

Trump was playing golf, again. He didnít make any decisions. He was informed about the actions of the military.

Our only saving grace is that our military is operating without the Commander in Chief.

They know he is inept and donít rely on the Dotard. They just tell him what happened and then Trump can pretend like he did something.

Whatever works. Just keep the dotard from making things worse until he finally gets frustrated and resigns.

The planet is not prepared for the horrible domino effect that will commence when the first nuclear bomb drops. Even if they are intercepted, the nuclear material will disperse.

The reality is that the effects will be planet wide and nobody, no living thing will want to survive.

Humans have created enough material to eradicate life. Maybe a few lower forms of life will survive.

So Trump will be fine, the rest of us, not so much.
