Bush declares 'fight against terror' is World War III
US President George W. Bush said the September 11 revolt of passengers against their hijackers on board Flight 93 had struck the first blow of "World War III."
...he said he agreed with the description of David Beamer, whose son Todd died in the crash, who in a Wall Street Journal commentary last month called it "our first successful counter-attack in our homeland in this new global war -- World War III".And there you have it, folks. Straight from President Bush. The US is involved in World War III. Hmmm... I guess that means that Bush has decided the entire world is involved in World War III. That is, after all, what a 'world war' is all about...
Bush said: "I believe that. I believe that [Flight 93] was the first counter-attack to World War III.
I do find it interesting that this so-called World War III is aimed at 'terror', particularly against those who carry out 'terrorism'. However, terrorism is a military tactic. So what this is saying, if no one has actually thought about it before, is that the US has initiated a war against a military tactic.
Not a war against an enemy, a country or a race, but against a tactic.
The tactic of terrorism is often conducted by anyone, of any race, any nationality, against an enemy that is often militarily superior to them. So this 'war against terror' is really an open declaration of war against anyone who doesn't like the United States doing whatever it wants in whatever country it wants.
'May you live in interesting times.' An ancient Chinese curse, so relevent today.
