Today Tehran, Tomorrow The World

The old adage that history repeats itself has a modicum of truth to it. Granted, the exact reincarnation of events never transpires but the human methodologies can be viewed down through the portals of time with eerie similarities. If you recall the opening scene in "2001, A Space odyssey," you will remember that the suggested beginning of technological advancement began with the use of an animal's jaw bone as a weapon of human destruction. The capability for mass human destruction is now a fact of life and as I have posited for many decades now, the definition of peace is the interval between two wars. Such statements drive the believers in "peace" at all costs into paroxysms of flying spittle.

The hard and irrevocable truth of life is that peace has to be fought for, it doesn't just happen because we want it to. The sad fact is that there are those who want what we have and have no compunction about destroying everyone and everything that gets in their way. Because we neglected to stop Hitler before he was powerful enough to devastate much of Europe and kill untold millions we are to blame, at least our forefathers were. That same situation exists today only the stakes are much higher, instead of millions who could die it will be billions and we cannot afford to take that chance.

Charles Krauthammer has an excellent piece on the subject:

"Our planet is 4,500,000,000 years old, and we've had nukes for exactly 61. No one knows the precise prospects for human extinction,......."

Read the whole thing here if it's the only thing you read this week.

I nods to the Maverick Philosopher.

Update: Dennis Prager weighs in. He believes that the threat is greater than the German and Soviet threats were.

Update II: Ex-Mossad chief believes we are on the eve of WWIII.
