In the Cold War during the 70s and 80s as a child growing up in this time I used to have terrible nightmares about nuclear war. Now those nightmares are starting to come back. Its the air raid siren that gets me. Those old Protect and Survice broadcasts were frightening enough. Tonight i watched a tv programme and the signal had clearly conked out as the picture froze. Normally I would roll my eyes and think to myself perhaps it is time i subscribed to satellite tv. But not tonight. I was actually fearful the programme would be replaced by an urgent newsflash to say the missles in North Korea had gone off or be confronted with a mushroom cloud.
I do not appreciate this fear. I dont appreciate the thought that any day now we could all end up being incinerated. I dont hate the North Korean people, just the evil regime, but I dont want to die in a nuclear war over it. Why are the UN not meeting now to discuss things? Why should my right to live a life free from being tourtured and mind raped by threats of being caught up in a nuclear exchange I neither wanted or asked for. Can I sue the Govermment for this or indeed apply to the UN for compensation of this basic violation of my human right? Its all theoritcal i know cause we will all be dead and I wont be able to sue!

Have you thought about suing God because of the threat of an asteroid impact or supervolcano eruption? Or, indeed, the fact that you might die from old age before you reach 211...... I think you should seriously consider it .....
