While you may think this dog thing is not an issue I tend to disagree.
I suggest we put all dogs that venture into public parks through a body scanner. If said dog refuses I suggest doing a full body pat down. If the dog is a Rottweiler, German shepherd or Pitbull it will be mandatory to give it a complete body shave to find and WMD's
This IS SERIOUS!

It is like I can already hear Glen Beck, O'Reilly, Hannity, and others calling for anger against the Muslim world. If more countries succeed in forming new governments after rebelling against Western propped up dictators what will happen? Most likely US controlled media will portray these revolutions as completely driven by a desire to create an Islamic world. American's will begin to feel they are threatened, and will support large scale wars.
Some people in the Middle East do desire an Islamic world. This long history is clear from the OP. I am arguing the majority of recent Islamic outrage is from decades of repression from foreign military and economic power. This anger often wears the garment of the Islamic faith, but without the underlying political and economic issues would not exist. As the revolutions against Western dominated economic and political systems grows so the movement will be moved into a more religious direction. Both in the West and the Muslim world radicals will guide the dialogues. As a result a clash of civilizations will occur.
The clash of civilizations has been discussed for a century at least.(Huntington: Clash of Civilizations)
In recent years since 2001 it has increasingly come to prominence again. The War on Terror is often portrayed as a clash of civilizations.
The War on Terror and the Clash of civilization.
Thus, ‘clash of civilizations’ rhetoric is intertwined with the very language of the
‘war on terror’. Rumsfeld – a leading advocate of US involvement in the ‘war on
terror’ – believed that there were just a small handful of (well-off, Western)
nations that could be trusted not to covet the commodities and “lives” of others.
In his speech to Congress on 19 September, 2001, for example, Bush outlined his
vision for the ‘war on terror’ stating, “[t]his is civilization’s fight.”18 Whilst the
US government may have seemingly sought to avoid the notion of a clash
between ‘Islam’ and ‘the West’, the rhetoric of ‘civilizations’ still crept into its
This struggle has been called a clash of civilizations. In truth, it is a struggle for civilization.
George W. Bush 2006 State of the Union
The concept of clashing civilizations, then, is deeply ingrained in the thought
structures of Western diplomats, scholars, intelligence analysts, officials and
Presidents. Such language points to a dangerous state of affairs; it removes from
the equation the possibility that Islamic militancy may have its own political and
strategic aims beyond a desire to destroy our more modern, superior ‘Western
civilization,’ and implies the need for all-out warfare to combat this threat. But
this rhetoric cuts both ways. The implication that civilizations are at war also
plays into the hands of the al-Qaeda leadership, providing an ‘us versus them’
discourse which serves to boost recruitment and commitment to the cause.
What does this mean? We are heading toward a conflict on a global scale. It seems that the stage is set, and I am watching the actors get into place in slow motion. The emotion in the video is why I began with it. I am watching the pieces placed for a giant clash that in my opinion is avoidable.
I do not believe it to be a natural progression. I cannot prove this, and it is difficult to speculate on. The global catastrophes necessary for a one world government must be tremendous. People will have to suffer on a scale where we demand an institution to ensure it never happens again. I have heard many people discuss that the NWO will create a war with the Islamic World. Forces in both sides will foster the environment for it to happen. I think if the US limited the economic colonization, and the Muslim world gave the people more voice the Islamic revolution would fall from favor. The only thing that unites the disparate Muslims in an attempt to create a world Caliphate is the injustices persecuted against them. If you remove economic and political tyranny it would remove the backbone of anger necessary to fuel an Islamic caliphate.
