In the days to come ..
September 11, 2001 will be remembered.

The point of no return.
The day mankind kept an appointment with destiny.
The sunset of peace and understanding in the world.

A long period of darkness .. is unfolding.

The lessons
of World War I,
of World War II,
of Korea,
of Vietnam,
of the Cold War,
of Desert Storm,
of Afghanistan,
of the Iraq War,
and countless other bloody conflicts, past and present,
around the world
have not been enough
to curtail the distant drum beat .. of a World War III.

The signs
are eveywhere .. ad nauseum.

It remains to be seen,
if the lessons of history,
make mankind - just another species - rushing toward extinction.

The world grows ever more complex.
Ever more populated.
Ever more connected.
Ever more stressed.
Ever more environmentally destroyed.
Ever more under seige on so many fronts:
culture, economics, environment, politics, privacy, religion, resources, society, etc.

And with the passage of time,
the creation, production, and possession
of devastating weapons of mass destruction .. is relentless.

The Point of No Return ..
has been past,
according to many in diverse disciplines.

Scientists and other great thinkers,
who study,
who ponder the universe,
who believe in life beyond Earth,
believe .. we are a Type 1 civilization.

Type 1 civilizations
are technologicaly advanced,
but socially and spiritually unenlightened.
Weapons, capable of destroying civilization and environments, have been built.
But, the wisdom to prevent their use is questionable.

Looming on the horizon
lies perhaps the greatest battle of all time.
The war between:
profound technological threats - versus - social and spiritual restraint.

Defeating technological threats,
opens the way for an emerging Type 2 civilization.

Type 2 civilizations
are sufficiently enlightened
to control and wisely use technology,
living more in harmony with all environments - natural, social, technological.

Can mankind cross the bridge ..
from Type 1 to Type 2 ?

Many are not optimistic.

It is believed ..
most Type 1 civilizations fail,
destroying their civilizations and environments.

The final outcome ..
is approaching - like a freight train.

Proceed with an open mind ...

2   WORLD WAR 3 QUOTES

William Shatner
Star Trek Actor (Captain James Tiberus Kirk of the Starship Enterprise)
Author, TV Series Director

On The Approaching Millennium (Year 2000)
"As we spin toward the Millennium, it doesn't matter whether there is hope or despair, because it isn't going to be around for very long. What's going to happen is we're going to drown in our own excess. We're going to kill our world and us with it. We may be fulfilling - I dimly think that we human beings are fulfilling our programming. We have a window of time that is so limited. We may very well have exceeded it by now."

On The Future For Mankind
"I rationalize it now, that it is our destiny. That we are incapable of getting beyond our reptilian brain. And doing something better. All our great concepts of life after death and love and the soul and goodness. All the wonderful inventions of man are for naught - if we're not around. Some other lifeform will take over. We are the comet that put out the existence of the dinosaurs. We are about to do the same to many species."

Notes:
[1]: The previous quotes aired on the Strange Universe TV Show, March 28, 1997.

Albert Einstein
World Famous Physicist

On The Third and Fourth World Wars
"I don't know what kind of weapons will be used in the third world war, assuming there will be a third world war. But I can tell you what the fourth world war will be fought with -- stone clubs."

Brent Scowcroft
Retired General
Republican Party's most respected foreign policy advisor
Advisor to several Republican presidents (George Bush Sr., Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford)

Attack on Iraq Would Lead To Catastrophe
Wall Street Journal, August 15, 2002

"Israel would have to expect to be the first casualty, as in 1991 when Saddam sought to bring Israel into the Gulf conflict. This time, using weapons of mass destruction, he might succeed, provoking Israel to respond, perhaps with nuclear weapons, unleashing an Armageddon in the Middle East."

"An attack on Iraq at this time would seriously jeopardise, if not destroy, the global counterterrorist campaign we have undertaken."

Notes:
[1]: If attacked, the Iraeli government has firmly stated it would retaliate, unlike its position in the 1991 Gulf War when Iraqi Scud missiles landed on Israel cites. Israel claims the USA government agrees with and supports this policy.
[2]: Brent Scowcroft is an elder foreign policy statesman of the Republican party. His views are believed to reflect those of former president George Bush Senior. The dramatic difference between his views and the current USA administration illustrate the broad difference between father George Bush Senior and his son George Bush Junior. The current president is surrounded by much more militant and radical advisors.
[3]: Brent Scowcroft believes most of the Arab world would be alienated against the USA if Iraq is attacked. Such a scenario would likely halt and probably undo much of the cooperation and progress made trying to defeat the al-Qaida organization and related terrorism conflicts.
