    I believe it was yesterday that I wrote that it is amazing the things that will tip a crisis into a conflagration. I didn't say it quite that way, something more like:
    A group called the Black Hand. A loser from Austria. A few drawings from a newspaper in Denmark.

    Well it seems the drawings might indeed be the 'spark.' There are a lot, I mean a LOT of links here. I'm not going to 'bold' his emphasis, it's well worth checking out his site:

    I think the most telling statement was this:

    Sure, burning Qurans is just too far, but burning embassies and attacking people is perfectly alright.

    Reminds me of a book I read called the Martyrs of Cordoba. Basically these Christians in Muslims controled spain during the middle of ages who were executed for saying they believe Mohammad was a false prophet. You would have thought things would chance over a thousand years. Sadly they havent changed at all.

    People are going to die over a cartoon and burning a book. This conflict is coming. Even if it doesn't start immediately the ball has started. Hopefully we will have good and decent people to rise up and overcome what the wicked in this world are about to throw at us.

    I'm afraid I am too. As much as I hate to admit it, this world is going to get alot more violent. We will see death and destruction like never before in our lives. But if we continue to seek what is right and stand up for our values, we can overcome the world somehow and we will see the greatest hope for the future arise up out of the ashes.

    Can anyone say World War 3? Iran, Muslims, Islam, Iraq, Afghan, Syria, North Korea, all of this, it's like WW1's "gunpowder affect" and how the assasination was the spark that blew it all up.

    I'm afraid to say but our lives aren't going to be peaceful, hell is about to break loose...

    HA!. I was flying over the pacific, reading an international newpaper. There was a picture in the middle of the page with palestinians using machine guns to bang on the door of an embassy and were threatening violence on the occupants because their govt wouldnt apologize for a "CARTOON"!

    Then reading the article next to the photo, a muslim apologist was explaining that the cartoons capture Islam as a "violent" religion, but he claims that Islam in no way supports violence. OH MY GOD! I forgot to save that one, I wanted to put it up on my wall.

    heh, so am I, I'm planning on joining the Marines in June. I might not even have to sign the dotted line now, i might just get shipped off.

    I'm just happy to know we're not the only ones going to fight this battle, but ontop of the Middle East there's also a plan on a Peacekeeping force for Sudan after the recent militia attack against Darfur. War is everywhere.

    "...to THROW at us..." :)

    I agree, I do think there will be enough. The effects of radical Islam are now getting too widespread. Im finding alot , ALOT of public opinion in Asia is the general public is becoming extremely disgusted with what the muslims are doing. When the powers to be and in place in Europe continue to get attacked, verbally, idealogically and physically, more of them will begin to understand the real threat most Americans and in particular President Bush and the Administration see, from Islam.
