I find it difficult to decide who is the bigger danger on the world stage at the moment - the deluded dictator in Pyonyang or the dangerous demagogue occupying the White House.

Kim Jong-un has been cocooned from reality from an early age, is clearly very unstable and represents a serious threat to other countries in that part of the world. 

Yet Donald Trump is equally unpredictable, volatile even, and seems to have acquired a taste for using America's military power abroad as a means of boosting his political fortunes at home.
