World War III

I'm trying to put together a long piece on the current Arab-Israeli conflict, but in the meantime, consider a few important things.

On Meet The Press this morning, Newt Gingrich pounded the point that we are in a global conflict and went so far as to call it World War III.

Of course, idiots such as Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly have been calling this WWIII for a long time. It's significant that a Republican leader is now using the same phrase.

The right wing rule for discussing the current situation is as follows: Comparisons to World War II good. Comparisons to Vietnam bad.

My belief is this is all very politically calculated and to figure it out you just have to go back to President Bush's statement of you're either "with us or agin us".

More later if I can get my brain up and running.
