   It is fifteen years since the towers fell in New York City, and the war is no closer to an end. Instead, what is happening is a displacement of millions of persons, stressing the resources of nations and neighbors. People are forced into destitution with no home nor opportunity.

  Governments accepting humanitarian challenges while destroying the homes and habitat of those whom are now destitute. And the unseen enemy persists. The battlefronts are being bombarded with bombs and napalm, while the enemy lurks in our backyards.

  There is no one with whom to communicate, no one to beg for a truce. Women are being kidnapped, children slaughtered, soldiers buried.

  Where is the discussion for appeasement, the barter for better tomorrows. The walls have ears, yet no one hears.

  We are in the new dark ages, education is dispensed with in lieu of food or shelter.  The hungry can not learn. This is the new generation of ignorance, darker than the dark ages, despair greater than the great depression, and the peoples of the world are threatened by the unknown, the enemy with no face, the battlefield with no border, the weapons everything possible.

  Today, with less opportunity, less education, less relief, less progress for a quality of life to afford the human race to advance beyond fear and ignorance. We, the thinking people have succumbed to the fear of the unknown and allowed ourselves to be held hostage by the unknown unseen foe.

  Instead of spreading wealth , opportunity and education, the civilized people are trying to erase the demon  with mythical swords, swiping through the air at ghosts.

  Could an enemy be beaten by the display of example, the wealth of nations expanding the quality of life for all its members. If there was the hope of a better life on this planet, would those soldiers still be willing to invest their lives for the virgins in an unknown world. Would they be willing to forge a path into an unknown world if they saw a better place here. We shall never know. We shall continue to fight this war, for longer than the thirty year war, with less of the pleasures of a quality of life known to the civilized world before the invasion of the ignorant on our shores.

  And this war shall be remembered for generations as the war of fear and ignorance, with the world forever being altered by the victors.
