Bigger Than 9/11: The "Hermit Kingdom" Reversed?

I'm not a tarot card reader, but I find it rather appropriate at this point in time that the Hermit Card is #9 in the major trumps of the tarot and if you flip it upside down (or in reversed position, as tarot card readers like to say) it appears as an 11 in Roman numeral form.
The Empire never ended, as PKDick would tell you.
The Hermit Kingdom is also the name that North Korea is known as throughout the western world and others.
"The term hermit kingdom can be used to refer to any country, organization or society which willfully walls itself off, either metaphorically or physically, from the rest of the world - but is particularly associated with North Korea.
Korea in the age of Joseon dynasty was the subject of the first use of the term, in William Elliot Griffis' 1882 book Corea: The Hermit Nation, and Korea was frequently described as a hermit kingdom until 1905 when it became a protectorate of Japan.
The term is still commonplace throughout Korea and it is often used by Koreans themselves to describe pre-modern Korea.
Today, the term is often applied to North Korea in news media, and in 2009 it was used by United States former
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton."

"The man credited with saving the world from nuclear disaster during the Cold War has died in Moscow aged 77.
Stanislav Petrov was a Soviet officer on duty the night of 

September 26, 1983, when an early warning system flashed a warning that the US had launched missiles against the USSR.
Petrov, from a secret command centre outside Moscow, could have immediately instigated a retaliation with a phone call.
Instead, the then 44-year-old lieutenant colonel trusted his gut, which told him it was it was merely a system malfunction. And after five nerve-wracking minutes, he made a decision that may have prevented a nuclear war.
He turned out to be right. The false alarm was apparently triggered when the Soviet satellite
mistook the sun's reflection off the tops of clouds for a missile launch.
Petrov died in May, but the news has only just come out after a German filmmaker tried to call him this month for his birthday.
The Day of the Sun!?

Hmm ... Trump and the Hermit Trump card?
A Trump Tower card?
I guess the cards are on the table ironically enough, it just depends what you make of it all.
Personally, I think the world is at the mercy of two of the biggest fools the world has seen for a long time.
"When the first card in a spread is the reversed Fool, then the querant must be warned against embarking on a journey that is unwise or unhealthy for them.
They really need to give much thought to what they are about to do or may have already started doing.
The Fool reversed suggests that you are longing to be free but responsibilities and commitments weigh you down.
You may feel trapped and come up with some hair brained ideas to find a way out of duty.
 When The Fool is reversed, now is not the time for spontaneity and freedom.
You must finish what you have started and deal with your responsibilities before you can safely move on.
 Poor timing is often evident when The Fool is reversed.
 His presence may suggest that it is time to grow up and face up to your responsibilities regardless of how tedious they may seem.
 Time to come down to earth with a bang."
