It isn't fear mongering to recognize the current state of the world and its many, many conflicts. In fact, current events seem to lend creedence to
the idea that conflict is actually ramping up.
Weapons are not made to simply be possessed, or observed. They are made for one purpose...destruction. The current nuclear nations have shown
discipline or restraint regarding their nuclear arsenals, because of a healthy dose of fear of retaliation. This is going to change. It will change
because a new kind of war is upon us. Major conflicts and wars of the past were of the black and white variety. Enemy vs enemy, in a kind of clear cut
scenario. Axis vs allies, good verses evil. This new era of conflict that humanity is facing is chaos. Terrorists don't have a fort to destroy. They
don't have a home base to wipe-out. They have no fear of retaliation should they be successful in getting their hands on a nuclear weapon. Worse,
they have no fear or guilt associated with innocent casualties. The extremist branches associated with Islam are actually driven to accomplish this as
their twisted interpretation of their religion motivates mass murder of so called infidels.
Why is this any different now? Well, certainly over the last decade terrorist have tried to get their hands on a WMD. Iran is the new wild card. The
reality that they are most likely nuclear capable has stirred up much intensity in the region. Even if they are not, they can now be blamed for a nuke
finding its way into terrorist's hands. Couple that with our itchy trigger-fingered friends in Israel, and there is enough to make anyone worry.
There is also the Pakistani wild card so to speak. They are clearly intent on becoming one of the big boys. Its like the new kid on the playground
that wants to impress everyone...so they do something crazy to prove themselves. They clearly have the support of Russia (who seems to support any
country that has a vested interest in destroying the west), and its not unthinkable that Russia might 'loose' a nuke or two that could end up in
The current state of the middle-east is unstable enough that it seems more probable than ever that a nuclear war is possible. Like I referenced to
before, it is only a matter of time before a nuclear weapon is once again used. There has not been a global conflict since WW2, when there were two
nuclear weapons deployed. Now we have a new world war scenario brewing, with several players possessing nuclear weapons. Seems like a smart bet to me
that those would be used. Especially, when America is the dominant military force that our enemies are concerned with. If you were gonna fight someone
twice your size would you slap him, or try to punch him in the mouth and give yourself a chance?
We all saw how horrifying the 9/11 attacks were. Not to mention, how they affected our entire country in so many ways. Our enemies don't have to have
a coordinated precision nuclear strike...any kind of strike on either the US or Israel would plunge this world into absolute chaos. Quick decisions
will be made, alliances will be made in haste, and practically the whole world is our enemy. Believe me, they would pounce immediately in order to
kick us while we are stunned.
It may be a year, or longer, but it could be much sooner than that. We all see the tension rising, it will boil over sooner or later, and someone will
do something very stupid. It is human nature to make weapons, and human nature to use them.
