Reaping the whirlwind


Berlin 

With their latest outrage in Paris the terrorists have have just succeeded in doing something the UN could never do. They have persuaded Russia, France, America and others to join forces.

Not since the days of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis has the world been so completely united against a common enemy.

Even underground organizations like Anonymous are lending support.

In the words of Winston Churchill who quoted an Arabic proverb when dealing with Hitler and his thousand year empire: He who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind.

This time there will be no premature 'Mission Accomplished' announcement.

When this is all over, and the last remnant has been swept up, the great powers will have to decide what to do to secure the peace. There may be some uncomfortable decision to be made.

For the time being, the world is united.

    1. They get most of their weapons, as do many regimes, from the world's biggest producer and supplier of weapons (according to a quiz answer on the 'christian science monitor' website which I've no reason to doubt).

  2. The world seemed to be united after the Charlie-Hebdo attack in January this year.
    I only hope that they stay united just somewhat longer and stronger this time. Unfortunately I have my doubts.
    Nevertheless - keeping up hope.

  3. ... and should remain conjoined... to that search of peaceful purpose.
    __Some have considered this time's conflict as World War Three.

    1. The Flying Spaghetti Monster is on his way. He never killed anybody. One million members and growing. It's my kind of religion. I'm going to join soon as I can find the sieve.

    1. Yes, especially those two. Some of the others have been playing both sides against the middle as the old saying goes. Not always the best tactic.

    2. Financially lucrative perhaps.
