World War 3 Trends on Twitter After Major Fighting Breaks Out in…

What now, 2020?  You’re going to drop World War III on us?  Heck, we weren’t even done with COVID-19 yet.

This has been a year for the record books, hasn’t it?  Well, not so much for sports fans, who are increasingly convinced that the MLB and NBA won’t be returning until next year anyway.  Forget the “asterisk” in the record books this year, because the pages that you’d print them on won’t even exist.

Of course, COVID-19 is only a tiny fraction of the ridiculousness that 2020 has thrown our way, so maybe it’s not surprising that World War 3 was trending on Twitter on Tuesday night.

South Korea said Tuesday that North Korea’s military demolished an inter-Korean liaison office building just north of the tense Korean border, only days after the Hermit Kingdom threatened a “tragic scene” at the site.

The building, located in the North Korean border town of Kaesong, was destroyed at 2:49 p.m. local time, Seoul’s Unification Ministry said.

Any sort of North Korean nightmare is enough to get the blood pressure up, but that wasn’t even the most damning incident to speak of.

At least 20 Indian soldiers have died after a “violent face-off” with Chinese troops along the countries’ de facto border in the Himalayas late Monday, the Indian army has said.

The incident occurred during a “deescalation process” underway in the Galwan Valley in the disputed Aksai Chin-Ladakh area, where a large troop build-up has reportedly been taking place for weeks now on both sides of the border, before senior military commanders began talks earlier this month.

The Indian army had earlier said three soldiers had died, but added on Tuesday that a further 17 troops “who were critically injured in the line of duty at the standoff location and exposed to sub-zero temperatures in the high altitude terrain have succumbed to their injuries.”

The deaths are the first military casualties along the two countries’ disputed border for more than 40 years.

It’s only June still; 2020 could still have plenty more in store for us.
