    Some intellectuals such as Newt Gingrich have stated they believe with all that is going on culminating now with Israel taking a stand against Hezbolah, that we are in the early stages of a third world war.

    Do you agree, disagree, or are we somewhere in-between?

    Last I checked , you have to call War against a country. You cant call war against a Noun. Like Terrorism.

    I think whether "called" or not, the world in definitely engaged in a critical life event changing struggle that must be taken seriously by more people in the West-SOON.

    This is not the time for "Islamic apologists"

    The altercations between Israel and all other Middle-Eastern countries is really no more than an extension of World War 1.

    If this is WWIII, then truly the world is a dull place.

    That would indeed be the truth if the media would call it for what it is in that I mean a battle of ideology and religion. Gone are the days of labeling a country as the enemy. Today in a world of political correctness, thats not proper to do so. So we have to call them "Extremist" or "Fanatic'" or (insert your own Noun) It a very clever tool of the enemy to keep the focus of military might off target and a great diversion for the "PC" crowd. The truth to all this fighting is of good and evil. One side has the true faith while all the others are falsehoods and copycats. To wipe Israel off the face of the Earth would erase the foundation of Judaism and Christianity in the eyes of the enemy. Of-course that would not happen because the faith is spiritual and not physical. But an entity name Lucifer and his followers have tried for ages trying to erase or dispose of this faith to no avail. And so the battle continues with many names and different players but always with the same result. The one and true God wins.

    I think the kidnapping of Israeli soldiers is analagous to the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. I think Hezbollah will launch missiles at Tel Aviv, forcing Israel to start targeting Iranian rockets in transit to Lebanon. I think Syria and Iran will enter the conflict against Israel. Jordan and Egypt may follow suit, along with a lot of ununiformed combatants from countries like Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, and the UAE. With our alliance with Israel, the threat of Islam united, and our presence in the Middle East, we would be forced to enter on the side of Israel. Kim Jong-Il then stands a good possibility of taking advantage of our distraction and invading South Korea. China will help them if they do, then go after Japan and Taiwan. We've got a lot of ambitious psychos out there, and they all look ready to make their move.

    Maybe I'm just paranoid because I'm draft age, but that's what I think stands a good chance of happening, and if it does, every male between 18 and 40 who's medically fit will go to war, just like the last time we had a world war.
