Reading comprehension is not your strong suit, is it.

WOW. Un-effin-believable. This guy has encapsulated, with sobering detail and a great deal of historical reflection, upon the very fears I have harbored for a number of years.

Strictly from a literary point of view, the style reminds me of some of 1950s Isaac Asimov.

About "the last three words" .... has anyone figured them out? Should it be apparent from the story context what they are? Granted, I haven't had my caffeine yet today -- I'll definitely re-read this later.

The three words IMO would be something akin to those Colonel Kurtz wrote in his apocolyptic vision in Cambodia during the war.

History is not your strong suit is it.

Those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it.

Powerful stuff.

Very powerful, and very chilling, and I thank you for posting it.

I have been psuedo-blogging, for years, a couple of the elements in WWIV ( III being the Cold War ), in which we find ourselves engaged.

The first element?

Islam, a Religion of Peace®? ( links, blogs, quips, quotes, aggravating pictures ) is located here- click the Pic, and scroll backwards:

The other, somewhat interlocking element is this one:

"Thunder on the Border," click the picture:

OK, I give up. What are the three words?

Therein lies the tale... my guess?

"You are next."

He says it correctly. It is a war on religion. It is not the governments of Arabia and Africa and Southeast Asia that urge conversion or destruction of non-believers.

It is Islam itself. Convert or die. That is the fundamental tenet of Islam.

We better wake up.
