Why mankind’s greatest threat is … mankind

“Recently, some Russian political leaders and generals, an occasional Chinese Communist Party insider, Turkish President Recep Erdoğan, unhinged North Korean Kim Jong-un and, of course, the Iranian theocracy, have threatened to annihilate their enemies. Sometimes the saber-rattlers boast of using nuclear weapons, surprise invasions, or rocket barrages, such as we saw against Israel last month. Or as Erdoğan recently warned Greece of Turkey’s new missile arsenal, ‘We can come down suddenly one night when the time comes.’ Taiwan is told it will be absorbed. North Korea warned recently it would ‘annihilate’ South Korea. When we dismiss these lunatic threats, are we really assured they’re truly crazy?” (05/11/24)
