Less than ten days after celebrating our own 'rockets red glare,' the Middle East is about to go up in flames. Israel and Lebanon are hurling rockets at each other - testing one another's strength and resolve. Syria is contemplating its response. Iran will fuel the flames from the sidelines, for now, waiting for the right moment to jump in. Iraq deteriorates further every day, along with Afghanistan. It feels like we're on the eve of destruction, like the wild fires that burn in the Canadian west, they are quelled only to ignite again elsewhere in the heat of summer, in the arid climate that has been stripped of civility.
