– by Rosaliene Bacchus

On Thursday, January  23, 2020, our atomic scientists advanced the Doomsday Clock another twenty seconds, bringing the fate of humanity to a hundred seconds to midnight.

    The recent action by USA CIC to remove
    a military commander went almost unnoticeable.
    We will see many more such removals of

    all out war. May see many such tit for tat removals before things escalate further.

    Sorry not convinced Armageddon is imminent.
