Arlo: World War I began 100 years ago last month!
Arlo: On this date 25 years later, World War II began.
Arlo: It's been 75 years now, and no World War III.
Janis: Knock on wood when you say that!
“We’ve been fighting WW III for some years now.”Yes!But we can’t recognize it, because (a) wars are supposed to be fought between kings or nation-states; and(b) We (the west) have decided religion is private & not worth fighting for.
Comments:(b)The violent jihadists already waging this war against us join religion & politics at the hip & heart. Their pledged allegiance is not to a nation, as is witnessed by the pair of Americans who died for a caliphate last week and countless jihadists who come from anywhere in the world to join wherever the current battle against the Infidel is hottest.(a) They say generals fight the last war. France wanted WW1’s Maginot Line to stop Hitler. Stonewall Jackson wanted his army to have medieval pikes! Until we recognize this war for what it is (& it’s not against vague terrorism, btw.) we will keep losing. Once we name it (“declare” it?) for what it is, we won’t be stopped.
It is ironic that the self-proclaimed “multi-culturalists” refuse to take the enemy at his word & insist on viewing him through their own cultural rose-tinted lenses.
Come’on Arlo. Think, man!
