by I'm Struggling
KCNA (North Korea) Nuclear weapons are humankind’s most fearsome creations. In a matter of minutes, one nuclear-armed nation can level dozens of cities, spread radioactive fallout for hundreds or thousands of miles, and wreck Earth’s climate.

It doesn’t help that there’s more than 60 years’ worth of convoluted terminology surrounding the complex policies […]

by I'm Struggling
