With each passing day, it seems inevitable that America must suffer a loss far more horrific than 9/11 to be shaken from its slumber of passivity. Time burns quickly away as Iran presses forcefully towards its goal of domination, complete with a nuclear scepter. We watch the ominous news unfolding on our televisions and computers, believing ourselves safe at a comfortable distance. We cluck and shake our heads, then switch channels to "Deal or No Deal."
How appropriate. For, if we persist in refusing to recognize and address the dangers that threaten us, the day surely will come when it will be too late to deal.
Sad to state, it is now obvious that it will take far more than two skyscrapers and 3,000 American dead to galvanize our "leaders" into any remotely serious action. I shudder to think just how much, how massive, how irrevocable that requisite "more" will be.
