Dr. Strangelove redux

I was recently roaming through a list of Rotten Tomatoes best 100 movies of all time when I encountered the 1964 classic Dr. Strangelove. I asked myself if it was worth another viewing. As great a movie as it was, I wondered if it wasn't more than a little passe in this new century, twenty-five years after the end of the Cold War. And than I read in the news that President-Elect Trump had just appointed a retired marine general named "Mad Dog" Mattis as his Secretary of Defence. I decided another look at Dr. Strangelove was definitely in order.

Mattis is the most level-headed of Trump's generals. It's Flynn that we need to worry about.
