Fighting to Win World War III

It started showing up in the papers about two weeks ago: World War III. Now politicians are even beginning to think in those terms; Newt Gingrich has staked his entire political future on it. If Gingrich is right, he's insightful; if not, a reactionary.

I despise those who are quick to escalate rhetoric without cause; their hollow words used only to provoke an emotional response or headline. But, for those who truly seek to discern the times, I ask, why rush to label this World War III?

Labeling the current struggle World War III is only good if it serves to strengthen the resolve of Americans. It is only noble when followed by a plea for greater commitment and preparation for the sacrifices that will come. No such commitment has yet been asked or required in our struggle against terrorism except the honorable sacrifice of a relatively few soldiers and their families.

Are we approaching open war? Is the sacrifice that was required of our parents and grandparents, now required of us? Must we now harness the entire resources of our nation to defeat this enemy?

If this is WWIII, let us fight to win; not in the half measures we are currently using. With the resolve we had after 9/11, when we made, "no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them," let's fight to win. Let us commit our all that future generations of Americans will remember us as honorable, courageous, and freedom loving. Let it be our finest hour.

Does America still have the character and courage to overcome evil through the influence of overwhelming military force that the future might be one of freedom? While it has been dormant, it may. When America declares war, I hope we will respond with the commitment necessary to win; but we will get there only on the backs of our leaders.

America is looking for leadership that will inspire us in the fight that is coming but as of yet is finding none, save Newt.

Linked News for Christians, Centrerion Canadian Politics

Thoughtful Readers Speak:
Brilliant. I love your point.

I'll be trackbacking at Centrerion Canadian Politics in a moment.

In the meantime, I'd like to ask if yourself and other allies might help Israel evacuate its children from the range of Hezballah's rockets. North America's jewish federations have set up an emergency fund to save the children.

Thanks again for the inspirational post. I've been feeling the same about the half-measures and lack of resolve.
