Or WWIV depending on how you count…
I know it is going to seem like I am jumping on the conservative bloger bandwagon by decrying the events in the Middle East as WWIII. But the fact of the matter is that this wasn’t the beginning of the war. On September 12, 2001, I held a question and answer period in my classes. It didn’t make much sense trying to talk about Pavlov’s dogs (as applicable as that might have been) in the wake of the September 11 attacks. One of my students asked if I thought that the attacks would touch off WWIII. My answer was no, it was already here. The US had been attacked repeatedly prior to the September 11 attacks, yet had not bothered to engage the enemy.
But the question remains, have we already lost the war? Our list of allies so far is rather short. The majority of the world’s nations are trying to either ignore the entire situation, appease the islamofascists in the erroneous belief that it will satisfy their blood lust, or have joined the islamofascists in tearing down civilization.
Look to the latest battle in the on-going war. Hizbullah (who happens to run the Palestinian Authority (what an oxymoron that is)) violates Israel’s sovereignty and kidnaps a soldier of the IDF. Yet, when Israel retaliates and demands its citizen be returned, the world condemns Israel not the Palestinians who started the whole thing, or the Syrians, or the Iranians who put the Palestinians up to it.
Now Israel is left bombing Lebanon to prevent Hizbullah from sneaking two more captured soldiers out to Iran. In the mean time, Iran’s terrorist puppets fire Syrian and Iranian made missiles into Israel targeting civilians, and merchants. Yet, to the international community Israel is still the bad guy. Absurd!
I find it ironic how to the liberal elite Bid Business is the epitome of evil in our time, because companies seek to make a profit. Yet, “enlightened” countries like Germany, Russia, and the paragon of liberal values France, have their hands to far up the cookie jar, you can’t tell where one ends and the other begins.
When are they (Europe, and the liberals in the U.S.) going to realize that this is not going to go away. They have been very successful in ignoring their problems for the past forty years. Korea, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Somalia, Algeria, and dare I say the Balkans. Now the bill is coming due for European and liberal complacency. One day they will wake up and find they no longer have the freedoms they so deeply cherish, and ignore. One day soon, we all will have to make a stand. Is it already too late?
