War in the east, war in the west
War up north, war down south
War, war, rumours of war
- Bob Marley
The Middle East tensions are threatening to blow wide open, with Bush stirring the pot by adding in Iran and Syria, while remaining completely powerless by design to intervene in the Gaza crisis and hoping that perhaps Japan may launch a pre-emptive strike against North Korea or that Russia and China will bend.
Where does that leave us? On the brink of some very dark times.
Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind.
- John F. Kennedy, 1961
