Note: I wrote this draft shortly after the horrendous attack in Paris…..events hurled at me took my mind off the post until today….I apologize for the delay. Plus the new debate on AUMF which could be a free pass to more conflicts…..
The Paris event has wound down…..and the world media turned to two bored adrenalin junkies climbing a rock……but they are making history. Is history so unimportant that this is a historical event? Ten years from now few will not remember nor care.
While we held our breath watching the climb the world is spiraling into chaos and most could care less. There seems to be more important issues at home and the world be damn!
What price FREEDOM?
Let’s look at the world……Iraq is a disaster, Syria is a disaster, Afghanistan is weak and dangerous, Pakistan, Nigeria, most of West Africa, Yemen is one bullet away from a civil war, Europe is becoming scary, the Holy Land is awash in controversy and violence and the US has its hands full with a rise in violence and mental midgets….let us not forget about the events in Ukraine…………..and there are many more incidents….these are the ones that readily came to mind.
There are very few locations that are quiet and uneventful……and yet people watch the news for award winners or fashion or some idiot forcing his hobbies on the world.
It is time for the world to reset itself!
From this point on many will think that I am a warmonger…..I am not! I want a peaceful liveable world…..but as my grandfather use to say…”hope in one hand and shit in the other and see which one weighs the most”. The world needs to take the events of today more seriously than it is now.
In the past I have worked for peace, I have demonstrated for peace…..but above all I am also a realist. And the reality of today is that something must be done and diplomatic BS is NOT the answer.
The world needs to decide that a major answer to the question is the ONLY answer! It has been done before. Think World War 2. When the murderous actions of the German war machine threatened the world….the world answered and defeated the swine
The world needs to pull its head out of its ass and realize that it is the entire planet that is at threat. And then resign itself to eliminating that the scourge that is inflecting the global.
I know I am calling for another war…maybe a third world war……which would be disastrous for many….but it will have to be done if this ball is to survive.
I apologize to the world for this post……and I apologize to the many civilians that will have to pay the price…..but we either confront and defeat this threat or CONTINUE LIVE IN FEAR!
There is only ONE way to face down this evil!
The world needs to face the growing problem together….not with some lip service or some lame attempt to look relevant….like a Coalition…..it is time for the world to go on the offensive and obliterate the the growing fungus among us……TERRORISM.
It is a terrible choice…….if there is a better choice….I’m listening……..the biggest obstacle is…….. there isn’t anyone that has the guts to make it.
The time is now to…..STAND UP OR COWER IN A CLOSET!
