WORLD WAR 3
It is not often that I take my quill to the question of doom, which is what the title may suggest to you, but in fact hidden within these words is the best gift I could find to present to you at this time of giving.
World War 3 has already begun, but perhaps not in the form that you would recognise. No doubt most minds will channel thoughts to the obvious in its physical form, spreading as it does spasmodically across the Middle East & now the West, not knowing where it will manifest next in the wake and the fear of its destructive power, for no other reason than control and that power itself and not as it would have the world believe.
Apart from small skirmishes I believe that World War 3 will begin in earnest in the year 2016, but unlike the previous two world wars will last for at least one hundred years, if only to repair the damage already done when the killing stops. By damage of course I mean that too, which has affected humankind on many levels, and will take different intervals to repair from the physical through mental to spiritual.
You will immediately ask who will be the protagonists and because of the obvious rise of IS you may ask will religion in any form play a part with opposing armies as of old crying, ‘God is on our side!’ or just sit on the sidelines cheering on their side from their newly appointed tented cities in the wilderness, as their old and loved homes fall into mounds of rubble.
Once we have sorted out who will be fighting who, and as we have seen of late once sworn enemies become strange allies and bedfellows, the next question is who will be who, who are the generals and who the foot soldiers and will it in fact be real or virtual?
In view of the worldwide debate presently in progress it would be natural to assume that it would be a battle on all fronts and on all levels between IS and its cohorts against the rest of the world, and like it or not there is a real possibility that even in just a supportive and training role, there will be boots on the ground, with the real possibility that it will be more, shall we say, hands on than that?
But like most infections it will be virtually impossible to irradicate completely and as it submerges underground there must be a constant awareness and continuous surveillance to ensure that it can never re-emerge again in any form, anywhere in
