Under President Donald Trump, according to Noam Chomsky, "the most dangerous government in world history" was at work. There is no other political figure in history who has devoted its main efforts to trying to destroy the prospects for human life on earth, the US scholar told the Bremen-based Weser-Kurier: "Not Genghis Khan, not Attila the Hun, no one I can think of.

The increasing threat

Chomsky (92) is a professor emeritus of linguistics, one of the world's most famous left-wing intellectuals and one of the most prominent critics of US politics since the 1960s. According to him, the threat of nuclear war has also increased significantly in recent years.

"There was an arms control regime that had been painstakingly built for almost 60 years," said Chomsky. "But Trump dismantled it. It's almost completely gone." In addition, the recently divorced US president - but also others - initiated the development of new and far more dangerous nuclear weapons. Combined with provocative actions in many parts of the world and a series of unjustified attacks on Iran, this has greatly increased the risk of nuclear war.

  Trump expected to issue flurry of pardons on last full day WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump was expected to spend his last full day in office issuing a flurry of pardons and bidding farewell to the American public from a near-deserted White House and surrounded by an extraordinary security presence outside. In one of his final acts as president, Trump was expected to grant clemency to as many as 100 people, according to two people briefed on the plans.

Since Trump gave up control of US nuclear weapons when he left office, the world has "probably become a bit safer," added Chomsky. Because Trump was unpredictable. "It would have been possible that in a fit of psychotic anxiety he suddenly said: 'Okay, I'll do it!'"

Chomsky described the first steps of the new US President Joe Biden as encouraging. But there are many problems that have to be overcome. Biden's own programs were nowhere near enough to deal with the two main problems threatening human survival: the growing threat of nuclear war and the environmental disaster.

Tucker Carlson Thinks Biden Is Trying to Start a War With Iran (Video) .
Tucker Carlson has been increasingly unhinged since Donald Trump left office — after spending four years propping up Donald Trump, Tucker is once again fully on the attack. On Monday, the Fox News guy got weird when he claimed that Joe Biden is trying to start a war with Iran, and promoted an evidence-free conspiracy theory that Biden is escalating the U.S. military's presence in Syria.
