ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT- FOR NOW

The silence is deafening. But the battles on the periphery are raging. Spillover is very real. One wrong move can set the world astray. Conflict is sometimes necessary to rid the world of evil. However, we find that time and time again that provocateur dictators are itching for battle. They have a death wish and don’t care how many others they take down with them. For justice to prevail truth is necessary. But for truth to prevail men must speak out. To hold your tongue in the space of adversity is to condone the actions of others. The world has been there before and they know the end result.

History has taught us that there is a time for peace and a time for war. Although we seek peace strength is necessary to stop or eventually forestall war. Regional alliances can come and go. New ones sprout by necessity. War though is sometimes necessary to lead others to peace. Long time relationships may evolve over time and new ones formed when need be. Today we live in a world on the cusp of war. Around us there are foreign enemies who are itching for battle. To them we are the devil and given time they will seek our destruction. Animosity runs deep and from generation to generation, passed down from father to son.

Countries ruled by tyrants have little regard for their citizens, it is they who rattle the sabers in a vain attempt to rally support. These situations can last centuries, but in today’s fast paced world time is fleeting. For instance immutable dictators were swept aside in Egypt and Iran. Revolution comes quickly, pent up demand from the populace is the catalyst for sometimes violent overthrow of dictators. Volcanoes and earth quakes act up when least expected. We are living proof of existential threats not only from Mother Nature, but dictatorial losers. Individuals with a Napoleon complex cast brazen threats in the hope igniting a calamitous situation. This is not the theater of the absurd, but in truth the reality of today’s actors.

Where will it come from is the question at large?  Our guess is the Middle East.

AMERICA PUSHED AROUND BY CHINA, RUSSIA, IRAN

It doesn’t surprise us one ruble of Russia’s adventures in the Middle East and power play in Crimea, plus saber rattling in the Ukraine; the Baltics are looking over their shoulder too.  China lauding North Korea behind closed doors, plus the taking of the Spratlys. And the recent shove it in your face Iran on the receiving end of banned weapons from Russia.Image result for nuclear symbol

The United States pumps out words while the others pump out weapons. And for Hillary Clinton, do not think for a moment that she is capable; it is her who lit the Middle East up in flames. Syria, Iran, Crimea, Iraq, devastation everywhere on her watch. We are closer now to a nuclear disaster than ever before.

Iran to get missiles from Russia.

When push comes to shove and it will come, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt will, or should we say must coalesce around the threat of the Sunni warlords. WW III is on the horizon; no doubt about it.

Barry McGuire had it right we are “On the Eve of Destruction.

Lyrics

The eastern world it is exploding
Violence flarin’, bullets loadin’
You’re old enough to kill but not for votin’
You don’t believe in war but whats that gun you’re totin’?
And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin’

But you tell me
Over and over and over again my friend
Ah, you don’t believe
We’re on the eve of destruction

Don’t you understand what I’m tryin’ to say
Can’t you feel the fears I’m feelin’ today?
If the button is pushed, there’s no runnin’ away
There’ll be no one to save with the world in a grave
Take a look around you boy, it’s bound to scare you boy

And you tell me
Over and over and over again my friend
Ah, you don’t believe
We’re on the eve of destruction

Yeah my blood’s so mad feels like coagulating
I’m sitting here just contemplatin’
I can’t twist the truth it knows no regulation
Handful of senators don’t pass legislation
And marches alone can’t bring integration
When human respect is disintegratin’
This whole crazy world is just too frustratin’

And you tell me
Over and over and over again my friend
Ah, you don’t believe
We’re on the eve of destruction

Think of all the hate there is in Red China
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama
You may leave here for four days in space
But when you return it’s the same old place
The pounding of the drums, the pride and disgrace
You can bury your dead but don’t leave a trace
Hate your next door neighbor but don’t forget to say grace

And tell me
Over and over and over and over again my friend
You don’t believe
We’re on the eve of destruction
Mmm, no, no, you don’t believe
We’re on the eve of destruction
