ISRAEL, LEBANON, IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN AND WHY WE FIGHT - THE SUNDAY COMMENTARY
In the years and months that preceded WWII much of the world refused to see or accept the threat that Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy or Imperial Japan posed to the world. Though this Axis did not seek martyrdom in the same respect as an Islamic fascist they did seek world domination and used diplomatic approaches by other countries as a means to delay and deceive in order to continue their goal of domination. The world turned a blind eye to much of their conquest in the vain hope that they might talk these fascist countries into peaceful ends to their fighting. It took one catastrophic event after another before the world realized that the only diplomacy that each of these nations would understand is the diplomacy of war. The world united in the destruction and elimination of the fanatical regimes that brought the entire world to war. Without this unified approach to the destruction of the Axis and their fanatical governments each of these countries would have continued to impose their fanaticism on neighboring countries until their goal of world domination was achieved. It took a collective and massive effort by allied nations to bring about the defeat of the fanatacism of the Axis of Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan and Fascist Italy.
It will take the same unified fight against Islamic terrorism that it took against the Axis of WWII to end this global threat of today. To date The United States, Great Britain, Israel, Australia and a sparten few other countries understand this. The majority of the world as in the years prior to WWII does not accept nor understand the worldwide threat that Islamic fascists fanatacism imposes. They vainly believe that talk and sanctions will control these terror groups and terror states that seek world domination through the destruction of democratic nations and freedom loving people. The battle fields are real. Israel, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Iraq and Gaza. Yet this enemy does not only fight on a battlefield as wars of the past have been fought. They fight in the streets and avenues which surround our homes. Hiding behind innocent civilians using them as shields as they fire their rockets. Highjacking planes and flying them into buildings. Strapping bombs around their chest and boarding commuter trains then detonating and killing. Driving bomb laden vehicles into buildings or parking them at busy markets. This is why we fight and why the world must unite as in WWII to seek out and destroy this enemy of all civilization. The only lasting peace that will hold is with the elimination of terror groups and the states that sponsor and supply them. Since death is their goal then the world in a united fight should help each of them achieve their goal before they achieve their goal by the destruction of western civilization. Take the fight to the terrorist or they will continue to bring the fight to us.
