Winter Olympics 2018

Unless the current situation on the Korean peninsula has detoriated it currently seeens as if the scheduled Winter Olympics of 2018 will take place, the likelihood of it actually taking place in the chosen host city Pyeongchang seems unclear.

The date it is supposed to last is 9th-25th February. Of course the Olympics Committee could choose to cancel the event, another option is to either give it to one of the other two last bidding countries; Annecy in France, Munich Germany or maybe even let them co-share.

Remember Hiroshima

The International Campaign for Abolishment of Nuclear weapons was awarded this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.

Imagine a world without nuclear weapons, it’s hard isn’t it. Millions of lives are ultimately lost at the cost of nuclear weapons; because of nuclear weapons.

Is nuclear weapons really neccessary?
