What is your honest opinion – Is the World Closer to World War III?
All it takes is a cursory glance at MSN, CNN the New York Times, or (your choice of news source HERE) to see that never before has there been so much anguish, strife, weapons, hatred, intolerance, racial and economic divide, poverty and anger – on a community level (as witnessed by crime, random road rage, as well as protests), and on a global scale (the never ending Middle East conflict, Russia and Ukraine, ISIS, China, North Korea) – and the list goes on, and seems to be worse and more strained with each passing quarter.
As said about health issues, prevention is the best cure – and regarding worldwide warfare and the economic collapse of the US, you had better be prepared for the worst.
