Gingrich: The third world war has begun
The civilized world stands balanced between victory and defeat.
The long road to victory begins with the free world helping the Lebanese democracy defeat Hizbullah, expelling the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and removing all of the 10,000 plus missiles aimed at Israel from Lebanon. Then we must create the circumstance where the Lebanese can control their own territory and thus end the mortal threat to Israel.
The ceasefire called for by the recent and ill-advised G-8 communiqué would do the opposite. It would simply allow the terrorists to organize and prepare for the next round of killing and bloodshed.
The nature of the threat - with Iran at the epicenter - is at its core ideological. The ideological wing of Islam that is irreconcilable to modern civilization. And while not operationally connected, the events of just the last seven weeks throughout the world share the common strategic goal of defeating the West and its values. It could be accurately described as a third world war.
Just place these events on a map and a clear picture emerges.
An Iran-Syrian-Hizbullah-Hamas terrorist alliance is waging war against Israel; seven bombings in Mumbai, India, killed more than 200 people; North Korea, launched seven missiles, including an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting the West coast of the continental United States; seven Americans pledging allegiance to al-Qaida on video tape; a plot to bomb New York City subways and tunnels; 18 Canadians arrested with twice the explosive force used in the Oklahoma City bombing. Now add all the cities where previous events have occurred and a global campaign of terror is no longer deniable.
The free world must stand up to the barbarism or be defeated by it.
In the current conflict, the free world must stand ready to support the democratic government of Lebanon in its quest to impose authority over all of Lebanon but especially its southern border region. This will test the resolve of the civilized world to turn this vicious attack on a democracy into an opportunity for an historic victory over terrorists and their state sponsors.
In this crisis of civilization, with nerve and steady focus it is possible to win a first decisive victory.
