Flirting with World War III?

The national election is within a year; I see the division of politics developing as usual. It is all about the great difference between the Democratic and Republican parties. Ha, there is no difference.

Our current president is as hawkish and corporate-controlled as any Republican in history.

Our economy is disintegrating. All we hear, from both parties, is how they are going to balance the budget and rein in Wall Street. All we see is a façade of reestablishment of checks and balances on Corporate America. Nothing changes.

For the first time in our national history, our president ordered the execution of several U.S. citizens openly, without regard to the limits of our Constitution. We the people ignore this Fifth Amendment violation and approved his behavior.

We the people applaud our president’s decision to institute regime change in Libya. The violent death of Gaddafi is accepted by the people.

There are five major economic powers on the Earth, two in disintegration and three expanding.

The European Union and the USA are collapsing. Russia, China and India are expanding and uniting as an economic force. Will they continue to allow our president (any president) to force regime change in the Middle East? I think not.

We continue to hear the hyperbole from our president against dictators in Syria and Iran. Soon we will see more violent attempts to institute regime change, as we have done in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya.

Will China, Russia and India allow forced change again, or will it lead to World War III?
