This article is not to argue the conditions of global warming, even though the average global temperature has been dropping now for ten full years and 2008 appears to be the coldest of the decade. Ardent believers in the carbon content cause are still saying "just you wait and see".
But there are ominous, imminent problems which far outweigh any global warming threat. Author, Robert Chandler has published a book, available from Amazon, whose title tells a lot:
President-elect Obama has stepped into a bed of white-hot coals with no shoes on. We all need to pray earnestly for him. I simply do not believe he, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, all the other advisors surrounding him, our congress and our judges have the ability to safely see us through the mess we are in. Can you conceive of us, at this point, mounting an all out war? We are likely to be so engaged within the next four years, not because of Obama, it would have been the same regardless of who took office, that we will be unable to do anything.
Our first step ought to be to withdraw from the United Nations and kick them out of our country. Then we need to align ourselves with any countries who are still willing to join us. It would be a start in the right direction. With the present situation in the United Nations, any step we take would be overruled by them. We now have some great anti-missile weapons and they should be deployed in any areas whose leaders are willing for us to place them.
Our constitution contains clauses in it that, when interpreted literally, hamper our abilities to protect ourselves. Our recent fiasco concerning treatment of terrorist prisoners is one excellent point. And the threat from radical Islamists is also a dilemma, since we cannot interrogate, or spy on, any suspected radical. This point is also of merit because many peaceful Muslims will not step forward and expose another regardless of how radical they may be. As our constitution is so often ignored, we need to ignore it in those cases where our security is hampered. When President Roosevelt ordered the Japanese to be impounded at the beginning of world war 2, it was a pitiful shame to uproot and interfere in the lives of those good citizens. But there was no way of knowing who were sympathetic to mainland Japan or who were spies. Granted, it was a horrible thing, but on the other hand, look how horrible it was to conscript the most extensive portion of our young men to be sent away to war and 250,000 of them never returned. A quarter million brave young American men. Was the plight of the impounded Japanese worse than that? Difficult situations, sometimes require drastic measures.
But one of our greatest threats, again comes from Russia. They are elated to witness our present difficulties. Their government controlled news media, Pravda, has an English version online which I suggest any of you read who may be skeptical. http://english.pravda.ru/
It never fails to have some critical articles addressed to our problems. It is not without likelihood that they will soon align themselves with China and India, and if so, they will be the undisputed world power. All have nuclear weapons and delivery systems. Some feel that these nations will also align themselves with Iran.
As of today 12/12/2008, the world population stands at an estimated 6,741,800,000. Of that number, China has 1,327,550,000, India 1,141,730,000 and Russia 141,900,000. Add those figures and you get 2,611,180,000 or almost 40% of the world's population. Certainly an impressive number as far as manpower might be concerned. I close this article with an extremely profound quote from a review of Dr Chandler's Shadow World:
"Chandler, who holds a doctorate in political science and is a former political strategist with the Air Force, Defense Department and the CIA, believes the United States is at a critical crossroads. Parallel Marxist and Islamist movements are currently underway with established fifth columns at all levels of American society. If either of these totalitarian ideologies infiltrates the power structure, the liberties enshrined in the Constitution and Bill of Rights would be jettisoned and capitalism and freedom eliminated in the service of the collective "greater good" or in the name of the Prophet Mohammed. Shadow World, is Chandler's explanation of the dangers facing the United States. How we respond will determine if the country will sustain a free market, capitalistic democracy or veer precipitously toward autocracy or theocracy."

Thank you Hebron, you make some compelling points. I do believe our country is in a dangerous place and if those with some wisdom don't start directing things I do fear for our future.
