Trump Summons Generals To War Room After Hawaii Students Get “In The Event Of A Nuclear Attack” Email
Here is what not to do when addressing your student population at a time when tensions with a nuclear-armed adversary are running at fever pitch: send an email to the student population with the subject title “in the event of a nuclear attack.” Unfortunately for hundreds of students at the Aloha State school, that is precisely what they got in the inboxes on Monday, and as the NY Daily News notes, the message sent Cold War-style shivers down the spines of those not accustomed to the “duck and cover” drills of the 1950s, which in this day and age of pervasive snowflakyness, would be pretty much everyone.
“In light of concerns about North Korea missile tests, state and federal agencies are providing information about nuclear threats and what to do in the unlikely event of a nuclear attack and radiation emergency,” says the email obtained by Hawaii News Now.
The email also told students and faculty to be aware of emergency sirens and to follow instructions on “sheltering in place.”
For Hawaii, which is far closer to North Korea than the US West Coast, the threat of a nuclear attack by Pyongyang is far more tangible. Furthermore, the American military has recently practiced missile defense tests off of Hawaii, because despite international efforts for a peaceful solution, Kim and President Trump have continued to fire insults at each other, with the commander-in-chief’s jabs suggesting that words could soon be replaced by “fire and fury.”
The ominous email also came as the president indicated that diplomatic efforts have stalled.
