World War O

When George W. Bush unleashed unnecessary wars of aggression on Iraq and elsewhere, many writers dubbed it “World War W“.

Now, Obama is close to intentionally or unintentionally unleashing “World War O”.

Bush’s lying his way into an Iraq war and then using torture to try to justify it were war crimes.

But Iraq was a third-rate army … while Russia has nuclear weapons. Even if such weapons of mass destruction are not unleashed, there could still be an unintentional nuclear catastrophe.

And China may not sit idly by while its close ally – and economic partner – is challenged.

World War O would be bad indeed.

Postscript: Hopefully, cooler heads will prevail. But the Neocons are back (they never actually left), and the powers-that-be are desperate for a war to distract the population. And the American media is banging on the war drums as loudly as it can.
