As some conservative writers such as Kathleen Parker have called into question Sarah Palin ability to become the next vice president of the United States where she wrote, “Palin’s recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League.” While that may raise the eye-brows of some: What terrifies me and I have written of it before is her willingness to go to war with Russia which is a superpower in its own right who does have at its disposal nuclear war heads.


It is not so much her unpreparedness to become the next vice president and perhaps president of the United States should McCain die in office that scares me, but what she may be prepared to do and that is launch World War Three.  I truly believe that a third world war is one where we will not survive once the genie is let out of the bottle.


It is this one video titled Palin’s Apocalypse which terrified me the most.  As I am writing this column, I am still shaken to the core should she become our next vice president.  We have all lived through fear in these past eight years thanks to President Bush, but I do fear her more.  She is not a woman that sees gray but only black and white.  If McCain were to die in office, it will be a President Palin who will have at her disposal the nuclear codes.


When she has stated that she would never “second guess” the State of Israel” and where she stated in her recent trip to the United Nations, "The only flag at my office is an Israeli flag," Is something that should raise eye-brows and concern for our national security.  First of all, as an elected official her first allegiance is to the United States of America and not to a foreign government.  More on Israel in a bit.

As Katie Couric asked what reading material she has read over the years; it is not what she reads that does concern me, but what she believes.  I truly believe that she is hell-bent on starting Armageddon. One of the reasons why McCain chose Palin was to engage the evangelical base and to energize them behind his presidential campaign.  While I do not wish to categorize all evangelicals as promoting the end times, there are sects that do.  One example is the church she belongs to in Wasilla, Alaska.


CNN reported this concerning her church: “Some Pentecostals from Assembly of God also believe in "faith healing" and the "end times" -- a violent upheaval that they believe will deliver Jesus Christ's second coming.” As the feed embedded in this piece asks, shouldn’t any reporter given access to her ask if this is her belief too?  She has even gone so far as to state that the Iraq War is a “task from God”


As a Catholic, I want to challenge her on this belief since I have never heard that message coming from any priest that I have listened to.  In fact every Sunday as I attend mass, the priest or deacon asks all of us to pray for the lives lost in both Iraq and Afghanistan.  To even say that this war is a task from God, I do opine that she is using the Lord’s name in vain.

In a previous piece, I wrote, “In this Bill Moyer’s piece, he delves into CUFI’s influence over our government you will clearly see the power of this organization as this group marches upon Capitol Hill.  You will clearly see they do have the ear of our Congress while those of us who do not believe as they do scream in silence. The words coming from Pastor John Hagee are frightening beyond belief and I am strongly urging all to view this entire piece.”


While the McCain campaign rejected any support coming from Pastor John Hagee as reported by the Huffington Post, one must clearly ask Sarah Palin if she subscribes to his beliefs.  I feel that he is a dangerous man where we cannot afford him having access to the White House if McCain is elected.


As both McCain and Palin have beat the drums of war in regards to Iran, we must not forget who owns nuclear warheads and that is the State of Israel.


In another piece, I wrote, “It is no secret and has not been for years as to how many nuclear warheads Israel presently owns as one reads Israel has now over 400 nuclear warheads.  The cat has already been let out of the bag as one reads, “According to retired US Army Colonel Warner D. Farr, M.D., Israel is the fifth largest nuclear superpower in the world.  By 1967, Israel already had 15 atomic bombs in its arsenal. In 1976, their nuclear arsenal grew to 15 to 20 nukes, and by 1980 jumped to 200. According to Farr, in 1997, Israel now has over 400 nuclear and hydrogen weapons.”


In that past piece, Farr even opined, "knowing Israel’s nuclear stockpile is the very reason why “Arabs may have limited their war aims because of their knowledge of the Israeli nuclear weapons.” He went onto say, “Israel has most probably conducted several nuclear bomb tests.  They have continued to modernize and vertically proliferate and are now one of the world's larger nuclear powers.  Using “bomb in the basement” nuclear opacity, Israel has been able to use its arsenal as a deterrent to the Arab world while not technically violating American nonproliferation requirements.”


It is not so much the debt we are all facing that truly scares me, but Palin’s allegiance to Israel and her end times belief that does.  This is the genie that cannot be put back in the bottle and it terrifies me and it should equally terrify you.  When some have said of Bush that he has placed us all in a state of fear, I say move over and meet Sarah Palin.  While our debt has placed us in the category of a third world country: One must ask of Sarah Palin if she is ready to launch World War Three.

In wanting to confront Russia as Palin has stated she would and irresponsibly beating the drums of war when it comes to Iran, one must take this quote by Albert Einstein in all seriousness if we are to survive past these four years, "I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."
