As the global population grows, conflicts over natural resources will become a normal occurrence and at some point nuclear weapon(s) will be used to
take out a competitor or to defend natural resources. Imho the current conflicts in the ME are about oil, the life blood of many economies. While I
disagree with the bush administrations representations that these conflicts are about terrorism, I do agree with the white that these conflicts will
last a long time.
In order to bring peace it will be necessary to come to some global agreement on the sharing of the worlds natural resources, but I really dont see
that happening without a great deal of death and destruction.
