World In Chaos

It appears to me that the world is on the verge of a major upheaval like one we've never seen. Al Qaida, though presently damaged, is not broken. I believe our political leaders do not have the willpower that Al Qaida has. If there are two or three die hard Al Qaida terrorists alive, they will always be able to re-man, re-group, re-train, and strike us again.

Americans have such a short attention span. Islamists, in contrast, have a generations-long collective attention span. With or without Osama bin Laden, Al Qaida and their cohorts will remain a potent political and terrorist force.

The events in Pakistan are extremely destabilizing. Pakistan is in possession of nuclear weapons and Al Qaida is obviously wanting to take over that country and overthrow Musharaff to gain control. Despite the differences between the recently assassinated Benazir Bhutto and President Musharaff, they had the same enemies: Islamo-Facists bent on Sharia Law and the destruction of Western civilization and influence.

The assassination of Bhutto was not intended to stop her or her party from success, but to divide Pakistan between Musharaff's camp and Bhutto's camp...allowing Al Qaida and militant Pakistani tribal leaders an opening to real power. This follows their plan in Iraq to the letter: Divide and Conquer. The only thing that will stop it now is American military intervention. As much as we don't want to get involved in another war, it may be the only to stop a full-scale regional conflict and world war.

Iranian nuclear weaponry is on the horizon. They will surely weaponize their nuclear stockpiles and aim nuclear missiles are Israel. It's inevitable. In this case, as well, if we don't intervent, we lose in the long run.

Do Americans have what it takes to win the war on Islamo-fascism? I believe it will come down to who they select as their next President. It will show what they are truly made of...whether it be cowards or fighters. Only someone in firm support of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in order to solidify our gains in those arenas, and willing to directly (i.e. militarily) confront Iran to halt their nuclear ambitions, will be able to carry on the fight. No Democrat is acceptable. Some of the Republicans just as weak.

The next election could literally determine the fate of this country and the entire West for the next few hundred years. We had better choose wisely, lest we end up just like Rome. If that's the route we take, we will be like the ancient Roman historians who wrote in their contemporary times, futility and helplessly witnessing and writing about the downfall of civilization. If, after a few hundred years, the Islamists outlast the West, we will enter the darkest age in human civilization. Human progress will cease. They are willing to wait hundeds, or perhaps a thousand years or even more, to win. Are we?
