The latest ISIS execution and how it heralds the beginning of World War III.

Doomsday Clock

World War III isn't what everyone has been expecting. Not too many years ago it was thought that World War III would involve a nuclear exchange. Since 1947 a symbolic Doomsday Clock has been hanging on the wall of the offices of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists at the University of Chicago. It is maintained by the members of the Science and Security Board of the bulletin. The closer the clock is set to midnight the closer the scientists believe the world is to catastrophe. Today this includes the threat of climate change. The most recently announced setting was made on January 22, 2015. The clock was reset to 11:57 PM, 3 minutes to midnight. This is due to climate change, modernization of nuclear weapons in the United States and Russia and the problem of nuclear waste. It has been set this close to midnight twice before. Once in 1949 and once in 1984. It was set at 2 minutes to midnight in 1953. These three dates were significant because of the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States.
The old joke was that after World War III World War IV will be frought with sticks and stones.

World War

In designing the Doomsday Clock the scientists were not aware of, (nor could they have been), of the worldwide threat of terrorism. More specifically the intentions of Islam's radical terrorists. Their stated goal is a worldwide caliphate with everyone ruled under Islamic doctrine.
A world war as defined by the Miriam Webster dictionary is: a war involving many nations of the world. This was certainly true of World War I and World War II.
One only has to look at a world map of the Islamic nations to understand that a war involving them would be worldwide.

A new low

Islamic radical terrorists, ISIS, reached a new low this past week by executing a downed Jordanian fighter pilot. It was no simple beheading for this man. He was placed in a cage and burned to death, alive! His execution was the subject of a 22 minute video that was released yesterday on 02/03/2015. The video was made by ISIS. As abhorrent as this appears there is more. Muath al-Kaseasbah was shot down and captured by ISIS forces on December 24, 2014. Subsequently, Jordan offered a prisoner swap for him. They would release an ISIS, would be suicide bomber that they had in custody for the return of their pilot. Their prisoner was Sajida al-Rishawi, the female half of a husband/wife team who killed 60 Jordanians in a suicide bomb attack. Her husband's bomb exploded but, hers didn't. ISIS agreed to the swap but, Jordan delayed wanting proof that the pilot was still alive. The negotiations were a sham because it is now learned that ISIS executed the pilot on January 3. This was long before the negotiations had even begun. The pilot was a devout Muslim!
This morning at dawn Jordan time, Al-Rishawi was executed along with another ISIS prisoner in Jordanian custody. They were both hanged as promised if the pilot were executed. Jordan's King Abdullah II vows more executions of terrorists from other terrorist organizations that they hold in custody.

Extreme methods

The radical Islamic terrorists are now running out of sympathizers and allies because of their extreme methods. There is already a coalition whose mission it is to degrade and destroy ISIS. The coalition includes some Muslim nations. I expect more to join. Given the volatile nature of the Middle East the armed conflicts will also grow in number. More nations will join the fray and you have World War III. The world will finally take this threat seriously. One has to wonder that if in 1933 the world had taken the threat of Nazi Germany more seriously World War II might have been avoided.
No nukes are in play… yet! World War III may live up to its original descriptions if Iran gets the bomb. World War III.5? World War IV will still be fought with sticks and stones.

Yo Micorchip Green, do you think was are a joke???
Killing and spilling innocent lives?? ISIS may have done that to incite people but maturity is what prevents the fire with fire concept.
With people like you, Planet Earth will be dead in no time.
You are a Microchip as far as I am concerned as you seem immature thinking war because of this. The peacekeeping forces will be there with immediate effect to prevent such uprising.
Such tactless talk will never ever make you a ruler or a Prime Minister of a country as you are a hotblood who indirectly incites people into violence with your offhanded resignation to life.
Its sad what happened to the man but it is a commonality in India and my own neighbour who was in the 6th Month of pregnancy from an inter-religious marriage was burnt alive in front of people by the mother in-law. That is India. The woman was with twins in belly and the babies were wriggling while the woman was burnt dead.
Go get them brains installed Microchip and make sure it really is Green for healing not a Satan colour of red.

Lady Aiyanna, thank you for reading my essay.
War is no joke. ISIS did it to incite more monsters like themselves to join them. Fighting fire with fire is all that ISIS understands.
You're attacking the messenger here.Attempting to insult or degrade me is the classic last act of someone who has no valid argument to offer. My thinking is practical and analytic.
A world War was started for less in 1914, the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand.
Peacekeeping forces? What peacekeeping forces?
I don't aspire to be a ruler or prime minister. Just a leader.
Apparently you're the only one I have incited. ISIS is the real instigator.
I would never offhandedly resign it. Apparently your neighbors in India would and have. I condemn such behavior but expect no less from some in a third world country. ISIS would approve of that barbaric act.
I do have a brain because my neurologist CAT scanned it and I've seen the pictures. It's grey by the way.

Chip, I pray about these horrible acts all the time. I don't understand them nor will I ever for that matter. I just hope and pray that the world can become a peaceful and loving place. If not, the results will not be good.
