To Win This War
Reflections, February 11, 2010jsc
To win this war, meaning to end the age of terrorism peacefully, we must stop avoiding, and instead truthfully answer this question: "Why do they attack us?" (Trojan Horse) To end the age of terrorism peacefully, in other words, to avoid World War III we must not be so arrogant as to believe such a war is an impossibility, for to do so risks the wrath of the Fates. The answer in the West lies in our no longer deluding ourselves as to what our enemy wants, the destruction of "our" way of life, and recognize that the real center of gravity (Clausewitz, Sun Tzu) from our enemy's perspective is our wealth. It is our enemy's stated intent to bankrupt us, to bleed us "white", to draw us into protracted and expensive wars, so that in time we will no longer have either the money or the will to fight.
What does our enemy want? They conduct a defensive war to get the West out of their lands to solve their own problems within the Islamic community. They believe the West is corrupt and will fall of its own accord. While there are radicals among them who want war for sake of anarchy, we have similar radicals within the Western community.
These radical elements have been and will always be with us, and when they behave outside just law, they are branded outlaws of humanity no matter West, East, North or South. If the West is honest in its conduct of relations with the rest humanity, then the West should have nothing to fear or hide under the glare of global justice. Let those without sin cast the first stone, and let those who want peace insist on lawful means to enforce global justice. This is the course to avoiding World War III, and ending the age of terrorism peacefully. What we do not know in 2010 is whether the trajectory of history already has too much momentum to avoid catastrophic war. We can be sure there are those on both sides who hope this is so and are cheering for rule of war. The big question is will there be enough momentum for the rule of law to be victor to ending the Age of Terrorism, peacefully?

World War III?
