13 Dangerous Days

Submitted by ub on Thu, 01/07/2021 - 23:13

The last time I can recall a 13 day period that was as dangerous as the period we face today was during the Cuban Missile Crisis, when American leadership and the Soviet Union were involved in an intense political and military standoff in October 1962 over the installation of nuclear-armed misses 90 miles away from the coast of the USA.

The United States and Russia were caught up during a Cold War period and it was the moment when the two superpowers came closest to nuclear conflict. It was known as the October Crisis of 1962, or the Caribbean Crisis, or the Missile Scare ended on 20 November 1962.

The present 13 day period which we are in today is the days remaining before the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. President Trump is facing a possible second impeachment or the introduction of the 25th amendment to replace POTUS, which we should call the American imbecile crisis and a Constitutional crisis.

There is also a dangerous period developing that could bring on a series of perilous actions and reactions which began last night when a moron marathon started when Trump, his son, and personal attorney spoke to a group of thugs who went on to invade the US Capitol.

Besides Trump, this is a group of lawmakers we will call #Cult45 who have steadfastly protected him and may go down with him. Stay tuned and so it goes.

The big difference is that in the sixties, it was an adversary that was threatening the USA. This time it's from within, A group of rogue US citizens and American lawmakers who are attacking. Back then, we publicly humiliated the Russians, this time around, the USA is being globally embarrassed with the undivided support of a Russian puppet.

Many Americans are now saying the violence in the nation’s capital was a long time coming after Trump’s litany of comments excusing and encouraging such actions. As the death-count rises as a result of the US Capitol invasion, organizers and facilitators have blood on their hands. Notwithstanding the United States reported at least 4,051 coronavirus fatalities, which the highest number in a single day since the pandemic began. Are we tired of winning yet? Trump said one day Americans would say stop the winning. However, the reality is that many are now jumping ship from the lonely Trump presidency.

Have Americans had enough bigoted, divisive, indecent, corrupt, bully who offers incompetence, rage, authoritarianism, and racism?
