War together

As the world watches in horror at the verbal volleys between the nasty guy and the leader of North Korea and with people wondering how far the nasty guy might go, Sara Kendzior pointed to an article she wrote for Quartz back in December.

The nasty guy and Putin had each separately just announced an increase in his own country’s nuclear arsenals. Kendzior wrote:
Trump and Putin aren’t heading to war with each other—they’re heading to war together. … Rather than engaging in an arms race against each other, Trump and Putin are possibly teaming up as nuclear partners against shared targets.
It appears the nasty guy has been fascinated with nukes for 30 years. And he has been proposing America team up with Russia for all of that time.

And who might those shared targets be? Other countries with nukes such as Pakistan … and France.
