Will They Have The strength.

The year is 2019. Yep, somehow we’ve managed to make it this far without the world exploding. It was borderline for a while, but in the end sanity won out.

But now they are at it again!

Two leaders with opposing views, opposing ideals and a mutual hatred for each other.

They seem to relish spending their time taunting and teasing. One will threaten, the other will retaliate and the rest of the world seems to be watching, starting to ally themselves with one or the other. Staying neutral, uninvolved, is becoming increasingly hard for them to do.

The general population are tense, uneasy. Should they be worried? Is World War 3 really about to begin? Should they be making preparations, panicking, or won’t it make any difference whatever they might do?

Will either of these leaders have the strength of mind to withstand ever-increasing provocation without becoming the first to react?

The answer to this will soon be known; at least by those that survive.
