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.
