Talk of World War 3 is ignorant and offensive

"If you look at the policies of the Bush White House they involve precisely the things that are not needed to fight a world war. The White House has cut taxes (especially for the rich). Far from bringing in the draft, it is focused on a smaller and leaner military. It must be said the Democrats are not much better. But then fewer people on the left tend to spout off about a third world war. So next time the phrase 'World War Three' gets mentioned by a politician or a pundit, any journalist who doesn't bring them up on what this actually means is guilty of lazily letting them off the hook. And so is every reader or viewer who swallows it." —Paul Harris
