The world is slowly being prepared for what will become an epic struggle for the the minds of men, and the oil wealth of the middle east. The people who follow the Islamist code have not a problem beheading a fellow human being to make a point. We as members of a global community must once again come together whether we like it or not to destroy a perceived threat to the world order as we now experience it.
The coming coalition of Arab, and western societies to do battle will indeed change the way things are going to be done in the future. I can look at that part of the world with little personal fear for my safety,. yet I know that I am not isolated from the violence of that occurs on a daily basis in that part of the world. It is just a matter of time before we in the west are forced to experience it firsthand.
