Western Civilization Nearing the Precipice

This column by Thomas Sowell is not a comforting read but it is certainly a very important one. He writes with a dire warning to the West about the unprecedented threat to Western societies posed by the envious, hateful fanatics of Hezbollah, North Korea, Hamas, the government of Iran, and others.

It is a warning that should shake our political representatives to bold and immediate action against these vengeful enemies. It should also shake the rest of us to fervent prayers, to preparations for the difficult struggle ahead, and to a more profound resolve to put our hopes for peace and security in a place beyond this poor planet.
