When someone mentions World War III, most people instantly visualize a nuclear holocaust. But this article (click on title for link) will make you think otherwise. After reading it, if you have the intuitiveness of a marble slab, you will see that not only can WWIII can occur without nukes, it is occurring now and has been for a long time.
This war however, does not know national boundaries and has not been officially declared. Declarations mean nothing anyway; all that is necessary for a state of war to exist is to have nations in two different hemispheres conduct hostile military operations against one another. And that we have.
It may not resemble WWI or WWII, but don't be fooled. This is the real deal. Most of the world does not know it yet, at least they don't act like it. Europe, where the other two world wars were primarily centered, has taken the appeasement approach. I believe deep down that there are many that are concerned on the continent, but their voices are not resonating as loudly as the Americans. Many believe that by coddling up to terrorists and nations that sponsor them, it will buy them time. They think that as long as they are mad at the U.S., Europe will defer the inevitable. This is known as the "Hoping the lion eats you last" theory.
As this article so states, I do firmly believe that this war began in 1979 when the Iranians wantonly and willfully violated international law, by invading our embassy. The sad thing is, this war will not be limited to just a few years. It may last many more and maybe two or more Presidents will have to continue dealing with the Islamofascists that seek to oppress the world, with their very narrow views of how a society should be.
They were at war with us, long before we were at war with them. They have been for many years. They have been allowed to grow in numbers and in boldness, virtually unchecked.
Give this a read. It is a bit long, but well worth the time. The author makes an astounding case. Take it all in carefully and think about it. He presents his claim with a lot of solid evidence. Anyone with an objective mind, will see and understand.
