WWIII


New Gingrich has declared that America is currently involved in fighting Word War Three. Unfortunately for us all, he is correct. While his detractors accuse him of alarmism or worse, the dreaded “fear mongering” he is, in reality, merely attempting to place things into a historical perspective in order to properly motivate the American people and our leadership. We do need to conceive of our sruggles as a war in order to pay the proper attention to them. The sum total of America and our allies’ current world wide struggles does, it seems to me, rise to the level of being considered World War 3. The struggle is certainly world wide and with the latest open hostilities taking place in Israel and Lebanon, it is certainly now a war.

With due respect to the former Speaker, I didn't need him to tell me that we are engaged in WW III.

I've been saying that for months, only to be greeted by stunned ignorance by mindless Liberals.

WWIII? That's a blatant exageration designed to get attention. There have been hundreds of conflicts bigger than this since the end of WWII such as the six days war. I know you are enjoying watching this but really? WWIII is a bit over the top.

The waging of a worldwide conflict on multiple fronts against a fascist ideology.

Serious thinkers recognize it for what it is. You obviously aren't in that category.

By that definition the war on drugs could be a world war. If this conflict qualifies as a world war than it is certainly not WWIII. It is more like World War 10,874.

Glad to see that it only took three weeks of world events to prove me right on this matter. If only history was that speedy in proving morons wrong all off the time!

What in the world are you on about this time activist? As usual, I have to guess what the hell you are talking about. Has there been some conclusive proof that we are not involved in WWIII that was revealed in the last three weeks? Ahhh... the enigmatic young activist. Click the title link of my most recent post 'Bluprint' and help out your rhetorical ally, Matt.

Still think the conflict in Lebanon qualifies as WWIII?
