Although I agree that we should be fighting the war on terror, probably even more than now, are we diverting too much attention to the terrorists? New powers grow in the East, China, NK, and this new "reformed" Russia to name a few. China builds nukes. (thanks Bill Clintion)South Korea is talking about reuniting with NK. Russia joins the European Union. I begin to believe that the EU is just another way to take over europe, just like Hitler did, but without bloodshed. It would not become a peaceful union, but it would only become a collection of countries controlled by the leading countries. SUch as Russia, or Germany once again. The countries would then become small states, and one country, or one party, or one man would take europe by the fist, and look beyond europe. Russia would complete it's mission, or the former Nazis will reopen the concentration camps yet again. Anti Semitism is growing in russia and the rest of europe. The few countries besides britan that resist would easily be crushed. By the time america enters, the EU will be at least 5 times more powerful than Germany. Communism, or at least a new form of radical socialism will will reform. The UN would be long forgotten. Now to look to Asia. Perhaps Some kind of asian Union, led by china. South and North Korea by this time would be called, just, Korea. Led by the radical communists, who slaughter any resistance. Taiwan would somehow become a part of china. ANd someday Japan will compromise itself. Who knows, this might erupt into WWIII, only this time, AMerica itself would decay from its weakening infastructer, illegal aliens, mass welfare programes, smaller military, compromises with the EU and the AU, and higher taxes.Perhaps the world would become socialist, under tyranny, or the world simply end in the nuclear fray. The radical Islamist terrorists would only be a distant memory... But there are ways to counter these threats. Strengthining the UN with the US making the rules, break off many trade relations with china, and warn the world of the EU. Another is to encourage Japan to build an offensive military. This is just a few the resoultions to use to these new threats. But for all I know, I'm just a speculator. Just a worrywort. But it may be the complete opposite.
