Holy Shit! It is World War III?



No wonder I have been sleeping uneasily during the past few nights. Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich recently said that America is in World War III (watch the video above). Holy Shit! From The Seattle Times:
Gingrich said in the coming days he plans to speak out publicly and to the administration from his seat on the Defense Policy Board about the need to recognize that America is in World War III.

He lists wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, last week's bomb attacks in India, North Korean nuclear threats, terrorist arrests and investigations in Florida, Canada and Britain, and violence in Israel and Lebanon as evidence of World War III.

He said Bush needs to deliver a speech to Congress and "connect all the dots" for Americans.

He said European leaders and some in the Bush administration who are urging a restrained response from Israel are falling short of what needs to be done "because they haven't crossed the bridge of realizing this is a war."
Boy, I sure hope he is wrong.

Don't believe Gingrich's effort to reframe the geo-political horrors we are seeing now in the Middle East. There is definitely a troubling war occurring there but no major powers are whole hog into it at the moment.

"There is a public relations value, too. Gingrich said that public opinion can change "the minute you use the language" of World War III. The message then, he said, is "'OK, if we're in the third world war, which side do you think should win?"" - taken from David Postman column from 7/15/2006

"'OK, if we're in the third world war, which side do you think should win?""

Based on history, the good side always wins.

All we need is North Korea to launch a nuclear weapon and we can then officially begin world war three.
