re: China: Naval Buildup; the "Greatest Conflict in History" (Tor Guimaraes, US) (John Eipper, USA, 06/15/08 12:57 pm)

The numerous interesting WAIS postings over this weekend have parallel
discussions which should be integrated. Before that can be done, we
need to sharpen the criteria to chose "Greatest Conflict in History."
If we are discussing the greatest number of humans killed in one
deliberate project against specific ethnic/political groups, then
Stalin and Mao are responsible for more deaths than Hitler's caused
holocaust. If we are talking about overall wars with two sides
killing each other, then Hitler is probably the "champion." If we are
talking about massive conflicts of one civilization clashing against
another, such as the cold war, African slavery, the crusades, etc.,
then the present Judeo/Christian versus Islam conflict is as big as
the Cold War and much bigger than the present WAIS postings are
reflecting. The essentially Israeli agents who for the last several
years have guided American Middle East foreign policy have been too
narrow minded strategically. By hoping for an easy victory against
the nasty Iraqi dictator instead of an obviously justified but more
drawn out attack on Al Qaeda, they made a huge mistake. The hoped-for
a Judeo/Christian clash against Islamic fundamentalism hell bent on
destroying Israel and its allies is turning instead into a clash with
broader Islam. Anyone with at least three neurons left knows that we
will lose such a clash for two very basic reasons: 1. The Islamic camp
can bleed us to death by just playing good/bad cop just as Mubarak,
Musharraf, etc. have been doing by helping the US fight Al Qaeda. 2.
Islamic countries have long standing cooperation with a redefined
third world: Russia, China, etc. which represent an increasingly
important strategic component in the Judeo/Christian versus Islam
clash of civilizations.
