The WWIII Meme (video)
There are screws loose in high places.
Elements of the intelligence "community" which have done such a fine job in Iraq, and their Israeli counterparts, along with the cadre of paid and unpaid cheerleaders in the TV punditocracy, seem to have decided that what the world needs now is another world war.
And they are not shy about saying so.
First, last week, David Twersky, the Tel Aviv correspondent for the New York Sun, a mouthpiece for the Israeli hardliners, compared the kidnapping of a corporal in Gaza to the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand in Sarajevo, the incident that triggered World War 1.
The parallel was planted.
Then, just yesterday Sunday June 16, New Gingrich, former House Speaker and still a darling of the GOP right, stated as a matter of fact on Meet that Press that a new war is already underway in the Middle East. It is, he insists, already a world war. "THIS IS, IN FACT, WORLD WAR 3," he said for emphasis, with no regrets and an apparent longing to "bring it on."
