    I don't want to see Catholics and Protestants bloody the streets on Northern Ireland ever again. I don't want to see Britain fighting Argentina again over the Falklands. I don't want to see Shia and Sunni murder each other's babies. I don't want to see Russia or China inflict Genocide and I don't want to see Israel destroy itself for the sake of a few rocks and stones. The World, right now is teetering on the edge. Death cults, Torture, decapitations on line no longer feed our appetite or our imagination. We need something so catastrophic that makes us feel again. What could be bigger than Nuclear War? Well we opened Pandora's box, the serpent has shown us the way and opened our eyes and we can never go back. Israel is just playing out it's role. We think there is a choice but there is no choice. WW3 it is, I'm convinced, as are so many people I know who see no end in sight to the darkness we have brought upon ourselves.
