The US is exerting more influence to tighten the sanctions on Iran.  Latest here.  The US needs to continue to press other countries to takes these actions.  The same goes for North Korea.  The common thread in this is that China is assisting in thwarting these sanctions.  There is where the real screw tightening needs to occur.

This is what I worry about

I don’t worry about global warming.  I worry about this.  Global cooling (aka a new ice age) would be a disaster for mankind.  I am not so sure it isn’t going to happen.

I am deeply interested in stuff like this.  I know there is a lot of stuff that isn’t general knowledge, but I’d love to know what the government and military aren’t telling us.

Now this may be the classiest take down ever.  Someone call the burn unit.  This only raises my estimation of Gen. Mattis.
