Doomsday Clock set at two minutes to midnight as world moves closer to global annihilation
Quote:

The Doomsday Clock which symbolises the current threat of global annihilation, was moved closer to midnight following a year of growing tensions between North Korea and the Donald Trump.

The countdown was established in 1947 by a group of experts who were working on the Manhattan Project, to design and build the first atomic bomb.

The scientists wanted a simple way of demonstrating how close humanity was to destroying the world with dangerous technologies of its own making.

Last year the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moved it forward by 30 seconds, to two and a half minutes to midnight, claiming the global security landscape had ‘darkened.’ But tensions between the US and North Korea have caused the hands to be moved forward again by 30 seconds.

The clock is now set at two minutes to midnight, the closest since 1953, when the US took the decision to upgrade its nuclear arsenal with the hydrogen bomb.

Kabul under siege while America's longest war rages on
In 16 years, the Afghan War has cost 2,400 American lives and $1 trillion. But with the country's capital under siege, the end still seems far away


Quote:
The war in Afghanistan is the longest in U.S. history. It's lasted over 16 years and in that time, America's goals and strategies have changed. Now there's another new plan. President Trump has sent 3,000 more troops to train and assist the Afghan army. But in the Afghan capital you don't have to go far to see the problems. Kabul is so dangerous, American diplomats and soldiers are not allowed to use the roads. They can't just drive two miles from the airport to U.S. headquarters. They have to fly. After all these years, a trillion dollars, and 2,400 American lives -- Kabul is under siege.

This is rush hour at Kabul International Airport -- a swarm of helicopters that's earned the nickname 'Embassy Air.' It's how Americans and their allies working at the U.S. Embassy and military headquarters travel back and forth from the airport. It's just a five-minute flight. The chopper we boarded was making its tenth trip of the day.

Helicopters await passengers at Kabul International Airport. The danger of the capital has made helicopter rides the safest way to and from the airport. CBS NEWS
A few years ago American convoys regularly drove on the airport road below. Now the view from the helicopter window is all most on board will see of Kabul. They'll stay behind blast walls for the rest of their time in Afghanistan. We wanted to know what it says about where we are in this war if American troops can't drive two miles down a road in Kabul

trump makes his first state of the union and the market reacts....

The stock market is on pace for its worst week since the 2008 financial crisis.
The Dow fell about 400 points Friday afternoon. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq also dropped about 1.5%.

It was another topsy turvy day on Wall Street. The Dow had jumped more than 300 points at Friday's open. But then it gave back those gains and more.

Fears about inflation and soaring bond yields sent the Dow and S&P 500 plunging about 8% so far this week. That would be the steepest weekly decline for either index since the fall of 2008. All three major indexes are down on the year.
