Re: <nettime> here we go again -

Dear all, read Alans mail again and the topic reminds me to many old
stories about the current POTUS again. What he did mean according to
Sebastian and others. Fashism and worse and so on. For me it said more
about Sebastian, for example, his kind of thinking. The Donald is
probably unique. Not all people are the same. And that he did let Korea
happen was good. The first time I agree with Pampeo. See the advisory
opinion of the ICJ on the legality of nuclear weapons from 1995 at the
end. The possession and even their use is legal in certain situations,
when the survival of the state is in danger, but there is 

"an obligation to pursue in good faith and to conclude negotiations
leading to nuclear disarmament in all its aspects under strict and
effective international control",

He is a stress-test for political institutions like the stress-tests of
European banks. I still think this is true:

Yes. And he supports the Saudis in Yemen.

We support them. What are the G7 dissens and his love for Russia
compared to this?
