World War III will not be about oil; it will be about WATER; an ever-scarcer commodity as the world population of human beings rises and Global Warming interferes with the water cycle and Global Pollution ensures that less and less of the water supply is clean and fit to use.
THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE SEEING HERE. It is not the big deal being made of who did what to whom; who "started" what and how and why.
It is not at all surprising, that the Global War over Water should start in the dry Middle East.
As was stated in the article by Dahr Jamail, ISRAEL WANTS SOUTHERN LEBANON'S WATER SUPPLY. Because of irrigation of desert areas and increasing SALINITY and dropping of the water table.
Any old excuse would do. Kidnapping of a few soldiers, as good an excuse as any. They were just WAITING for it.

It is all very well to pray for peace; but that will not bring peace. Sorry.


The ONLY THING that could POSSIBLY bring peace, is, a control and drastic lessening of the world's over-population of humans.
That means, universal access to the means of WOMEN having control over their own bodies and fertility.
Unfortunately, in the Middle East as elsewhere, every side is trying to "out-populate" the other. Women are PRESSURED and sometimes REQUIRED by strict religious order -- of VARIOUS religions -- to produce as MANY children as possible; i.e., SONS who will grow up to be soldiers and help the ruling powers grab land, oil, WATER, whatever is in scarce supply.
This is TOTAL INSANITY but there seems NO way of stopping it.
I believe that if women ran things, ways and means of co-operatively sharing Earth's resources would be worked out.
THIS IS ALL ABOUT THE MILITARY {i.e. MASCULINE} CONTROL OF EARTH'S LIMITED RESOURCES. Yesterday it was land; today oil; tomorrow it will definitely be water.

This is not at all to say that there are not millions of men who WANT PEACE! {Or women who are caught up in the War Fever!}
But, I DO blame ALL Patriarchal Religions -- which are both a cause, and a SYMPTOM, of the testosterone-syndrome that, as was so well put in the article, "Benefits only the EXTREMIST groups". The groups that, not co-incidentally, oppress women the MOST {Fundamentalisms of ALL kinds; Islamic, Jewish fundamentalism, and Christian.}
