I can remember back in 1987 sitting in a conference room watching a video taped briefing about when the M-East would eventually melt down and the US
would inevitably get involved with boots on the ground because we're too stupid not to learn from the 70's oil embargo experience. The person giving
the brief was a Master Chief in the US NAVY and without naming names, he pretty much dialed it in to just where we're at today. His summation was
that this would be the "iginition" for WWIII and that WWIII would look nothing like the previous two and we would be in it a long, long time. He
also stated that in the end, Einstein was right and the last of the combatants would be fighting with "pointed sticks" and that it's pretty much
the end of "civilization" as we know it. Also, there will be no winners or losers in this one. Every person on this planet will be affected, if not
exterminated. Ah, the human experience, isn't life grand !!
Of course, he may have gotten it wrong, but it sure doesn't look that way right now.
But at least with this one we can all watch from the comfort of our homes as long as they last, All in brilliant HDTV !
