@yinettesys Those of us who grew up in the Cold War are kinda used to the early-phase atomic rhetoric.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinettesys

@yinettesys Oh last year? No, that’s the regular sabre-rattling to get aid. Don’t worry about that. Just set your watch by it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinettesys

@yinettesys Actually, Soviet nuke tests were only just getting under way during the war. The US could’ve glassed NK and gotten away with it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinettesys

@yinettesys China didn’t have nukes until the mid-1960. Russia did at the time of the Korean War, but not many.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinettesys

@yinettesys There were discussions of nuking North Korea at the time.

Hang on. That Australian vernacular is likely to be misunderstood internationally, isn’t it. Oh well.

Bugger. I’ll have to go Katoomba today after all. Not that I object to Katoomba. More than I really couldn’t be arsed. But arse I shall be.

@pblakez I’ll let you know when I’m next up your way and not on a tightly controlled timeline.

@pblakez @paulcarr I’ll have to hear your story some time. It’s a very different world from 23 years ago.

@pblakez @paulcarr I didn’t mean to say it wasn’t possible individually, but as a solution for a whole industry, nah.
