Frankly, seek help. Your making connections that are either tenuous at best, plainly not there at worst.
There is no war to "kick off" soon. The situation is as it has always been all f***** up.
Having been around a little longer than you (I believe), let me assure you the violence and frequency of conflict is no different to 40+ years ago. It simply has more media outlets to be distortedly reported through.
2012 is just going to be another "business as usual" year on this ball of sh*t we call Earth.
News IDF Intel: Hezbollah rockets deployed south of Litani River
"Thousands of Hezbollah militants and rockets are deployed north and south of the Litani River," the head of the IDF's Intelligence Research Department told the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee. "Hezbollah is arming itself with more and more long-range sophisticated weaponry," said Brig.-Gen. Yossi Baidatz. "Israel's southern region is also threatened by Hezbollah's rockets." (Amnon Meranda)
The December solstice occurs when the sun reaches its most southerly declination of -23.5 degrees. In other words, it is when the North Pole is tilted 23.5 degrees away from the sun. Depending on the Gregorian calendar, the December solstice occurs annually on a day between December 20 and December 23. On this date, all places above a latitude of 66.5 degrees north are now in darkness, while locations below a latitude of 66.5 degrees south receive 24 hours of daylight. The sun is directly overhead on the Tropic of Capricorn in the southern hemisphere during the December solstice. It also marks the longest day of the year in terms of daylight hours for those living south of the Tropic of Capricorn. Those living or travelling south from the Antarctic Circle towards the South Pole will see the midnight sun during this time of the year. On the contrary, for an observer in the northern hemisphere, the December solstice marks the day of the year with the least hours of daylight for those living north of the Tropic of Cancer. Those living or traveling north of the Arctic Circle towards the North Pole will not be able to see the sun during this time of the year.
