Is a world war impossible?

May 28, 2011

Of course it is not. Sticklers for semantics might opine that it is not impossible but rather it is improbable.

How do you explain the following then.

Is it not curious how in the past ten years and particularly in the past five Western governments have gradually enacted legislation that could make a total war possible? Starting with broadening the definition of “terrorist”  to encompass actions that till recently had been an integral part of democratic expression thereby turning most law abiding citizens in potential terrorists if, for example, they dissent from the political line imposed by decree by government.

McGovern recalled how five years ago, when he challenged Rumsfeld, he did not get beat up by police, and was at least given the opportunity to interact with Rumsfeld.  By contrast, when McGovern disrupted a speech by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, on February 15, 2011, he was arrested.  All he did was turn his back on Clinton at a speech at Georgia Washington University (You Tube video). After turning his back on Clinton, McGovern was dragged out of the room, and left with blood dripping down his pants.  This seems unbelievable, as McGovern poses no threat, is a 71 year-old calm gentleman, and a respected former CIA official.

Is it not curious that the Lisbon Treaty should have given rise to a political body that despite not being elected has broad executive powers?

And then there is the pesky provision of “Worldwide War” embedded in the National Defense Authorization Act: http://www.infowars.com/obamas-promise-to-veto-worldwide-war-bill-rings-hollow/

And then there is that troubling attitude  that till recently was the almost exclusive domain of tin pot dictators in fringe countries like Tunisia, Syria North Korea or Libya for example and that is becoming ever more prevalent amongst “enlightened” Western politicians.

A worldwide war impossible? At this rate, hardly.

PS: By the way. I forgot this little gem from some months back:

So now NATO MUST, in the words of its chief, be prepared for perpetual war; must!

Must??!! Has anyone bothered to ask why we should prepare to launch foreign wars?
