#1 Why do I have the feeling I am living through the beginning of WWIII?

Where and how it will develop I don't know, but, the nexus of Islam and dictators in the ME and Africa, the likes of Chavez, Chinese, Iranian nukes, expansionism, the crumbling of NK with the catastrophe of Japan seem to be melding into a giant conflagration.

#2 Alan C, the trajectory toward WWIII was set firmly in place by The Won TOTUS election.

It is just a question when, not if.

#3 2x4, I certainly agree with you. Immediately before the election I made a series of predictions as to what would happen if Zero won.

My wife is keeping them for me to see how I did as a prognosticator. I'll get to look at them in 2012.

My memory is that they were all pretty gloomy. My opionion is that they may not have been gloomy enough.

#4  WWIII started, IMHO, about 1918 when US troops started fighting the Red Army in Russia, this was even before WWI ended. The ending of WWI was precipitated by the collapse of the Second Reich. WWII was won when the Allies pounded the Axis into rubble and ashes. We won WWIII when the USSR collapsed about 1990.
WWIV started around 1979 when the Mullahs took over Iran. At this moment it appears the US is heading for collapse unless it mends its ways. Our energy policy is like our fiscal policy: keep kicking the can down the road until a miracle happens.

#5 Cold War is WWIII and it was won by Reagan. Huntingdon recognized this and who am I to argue with him? We are living the clash of civilizations. WWIV is the West vs Islam and it is just getting warmed up. Question is whether the Chinese recognize Islam or the US as the more significant enemy and what reaction is merited at present. Perhaps the Chinese constantly undermine both sides and will just wait to kill whoever wins WWIV, bloodied and tired, an easy target.
