Supplemental - WWIII

I hate to follow up a cute post of Loren with something completely depressing, but is anyone watching the news these days? We seem to be in the middle of World War III. Between the Israeli developments, the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, North Korea going nuclear and test firing missiles, or the fact that China and Russia are both not supportive of us or our allies - the world is in trouble here, and I don't see an answer from the Democrats or the Republicans. Iran announced that Israel's attacks are an attack on Islam and warned Israel against extending its offensive to Syria, saying such a move would be regarded as an attack on the whole Islamic world and would be met with a "crushing response." Is anyone else starting to get worried about the state of things?

The world is going to hell in a handbasket and we seem to be asleep at the switch.

Wait -- I thought Italy won and the whole soccer thing was done with. Am I supposed to still care about soccer?

I agree, Curt. Rather than becoming more cohesive, the global village appears to be becoming more and more polarized by the day.

Why?

Religion and money.

When it comes to politics.....it's always seems to be about religion or money.

The situation is getting worse. Iranian-made missles are now being used, and Israel is just bombing away like crazy. That entire region is close to exploding and our Secretary of State "might" go there to try to defuse the situation.

I agree with an article I read somewhere that our President needs to send his father and Bill Clinton over there to try and work some non-partisan diplomacy.

I don't think people realize how close we are to a significant, significant war in that region.
