The Gathering Storm
Israel is planning a pre-emptive strike on Syria's missiles and chem/bio weapons before they fall into the hands of militant Muslims/terrorists or Hezbollah.
A great storm is gathering. This is not a dream. This is not hype or propaganda: but a reality. The west will be changed forever when the strike occurs.
Democracies have always been fragile/short lived. The civilized, cultured West is no more than a flash of lightning on a darkening plain at night:
"And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night."
From Dover Beach by Matthew Arnold
