The Next Great War

The Next Great War

In the July 24 edition of The Wall Street Journal there was a commentary, “Wanted: Converts to Judaism” by the chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary, Arnold M. Eisen. I thought to myself that this was an extraordinary time to be suggesting conversion to a faith that is literally under attack in Israel and being […]

Obama’s War Mongering

For one to say: “These are perilous times,” in reference to our current position on the time continuum, would be a vast understatement. With a military spent and degraded, the US stands on the cusp of a THIRD WORLD WAR, which will — win, lose, or draw, likely finish America for good.

obama-war-is-peace2Here’s what I see in my somewhat dusty crystal ball for US/Iraqi relations: The US will have to invade Iraq for a third time — to drive out the Iranians. The problem with that scenario is that should we have to do that, we most certainly will have to drive into Iran itself to destroy the current Iranian regime and cripple the Iranian military and their nuclear bomb aspirations.

obama-warIn his first 2 years in office, Barack Obama’s policies toward the Islamic World (and, concurrently toward our allies) have caused a lot of head scratching! It would be a lengthy and distracting tangent to pursue his history in this regard here. Suffice it to say that there are many examples where his foreign policy has been either incoherent or antithetical to our historical understanding of friend and foe.

american-warrriorsWithdrawing from conflict zones in Iraq and Afghanistan may seem like a good idea, an end to our casualties in battle, but those who are there, our warrior class, know that it would just be a brief cessation of what will be a very long war we cannot dare to lose.
