I'm reading stuff today that.....makes a world war not so unbelievable.

The majority of which has to do with the Taliban's proclomation (however accurate this information may be, it is still worth nothing) that yes, Bin Laden is in their country, and no we can't have him, and if any countries ally themselves with the US should we decide to go in and get the bastard, they are being warned.

Sounds like a threat to me.

I also read an interesting piece about an American citizen of Afghan descent that makes a lot of good points about how worthless it would really be to just bomb the hell out of Afghanistan - the change in landscape would be minimal at best and we probably wouldn't get the right guys.

The guy went on to say that the possibility exists of a huge conflict between the West and the nation of Islam due to many things, and I really couldn't argue with it, although it is something of a worse-case scenario. You can read it here and then the rest of it here. A worthwhile read.

It's all kind of scary. That it could come to this.

Well, maybe a world-war in the sense of everyone against them. Even Cuba is offering to send support to nations that need it. Also, many countries lost people who worked in the WTCs. Of course, time will tell. Given the fact that the Afganies would probably offer stiff resistance, we could see another Vietnam. Military leaders have their work cut out for them this time. Very well can't go sending our soldiers into a death trap. It would just be easier to go back to using naplam and cluster bombs until we've broken their will to fight. If enough 'innocent' civilians suffer, maybe they'll start to denouce their own goverment. But then again, they seem rather brainwashed so who knows?
