The hope engendered three years ago by the announcement of the normalization of Cuba-US relations after almost six decades of enmity is now a distant memory, given US President Donald Trump"s hostility toward Havana, and Russia has been taking full advantage of the situation to reestablish its influence on the communist island.

Trump has made clear that the United States would respond to North Korean nuclear threats with a massive military strike, possibly involving nuclear weapons. EFE

How did we get here? Why does it appear that we’re on the brink of a war in Asia, one that could involve nuclear weapons? North Korea has had nuclear-weapons capacity for at least 10 years now.

Although it’s home to just 64,000 people, Youngstown gets more than its share of attention from politicians, media, filmmakers, and even a poetic singer/songwriter from Freehold, New Jersey.
