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”.
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.
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.
