A Roman cleric foretold the fall of his empire three centuries prior to its collapse with these immortal words: Total Tolerance Totally Destroys. He was inferring to the social, economic and political turmoil within his empire and abroad. Many social historians agree that we are at a “make or break” period in human civilization either we will resolve or dissolve. The underlining fear is that of a third world war resulting in the destruction or annihilation of most of the planets resources and populations given the numerous countries that have or will obtain WMD. Western “think tanks” estimate that this fear is much more real now than it was during the Cold War and that nuclear aggression could happen most likely within the Middle East in the next 5 to 10 years if Islamic aggression continues upon itself, Israel and the Western World. Further, there is whisper of a possible military confrontation that could erupt between China and the US over Taiwan due to economic reasons within the next 20 years. This cat and mouse game that China/US are currently playing almost lead to a military confrontation at sea recently with the stocking of a US carrier by a Chinese submarine. The Chinese government, of course, denied any knowledge that their sub had “veered so far off course”. A senior US military official indicated that this was exactly why the Chinese needs to cooperate with other sea faring nation in becoming a modern and responsible navy. If not for highly trained personnel, the Chinese would have had one less sub in their fleet.

Well...it seems like I will never grow up in this crazy world of ours. That is all I need is a nuclear war now.

You’ll grow up assuming we can keep the crazies off the trigger. Never give god fearing nations nuclear weapons, especially those who get off on Revelations.

The world is a dangerous place, yes. But isn't that what makes life interesting? Ever since the beginning of time the world has been a struggle between classes and culture, and so it will be to the end. Technology is the thing that kills us. Like AlDaja said, keep the crazies off the trigger! I like your threads AlDaja. :)

Thank you, I try to keep it engaging…even if “post-ers” to my User CP don’t think so.

An interesting topic, but you forgot that some people, like me, are old and short-sighted. If you want people to read it, make it readable.

And post it in the Pub too.

..."if you want people to read it, make it readable"...sorry I thought it was clear, I can dumb it down in the future if this is what you meant about the topic???

No, just make it larger. Such small text is uncomfortable for me to read (especially since I'm using a 1280x1024 screen resolution).
