Inevitable Pessimism.

I had several light hearted posts lined up, but having just read about today’s massacre in Tunisia, it all seems inappropriate.

I remember reading many years ago that WWIII won’t be a conventional war between nations, fought by military machines in battle environments, but a war between militant idealists and Establishments fought out on the streets. Maybe that’s right, and maybe WWIII has now started.

And it seems to me that a war against militant idealists is almost impossible to win. Military machines can be destroyed, but causes can’t. I suspect we’re in for a long period of damage limitation.
