I'm a retired lieutenant colonel from the United States Air Force with over 26 years active service with combat in China and Pacific World War II and combat Korean War in B-29s. I was medically retired in January 1969.
I would like to make a statement regarding military action. In the next 20 years, I believe all nations not believing as Muslims do, will be involved in a world war involving all nations. Muslims basically believe in killing non-believers. I don't think diplomacy will avoid such a war. We presently are confronting all Muslim nations in the near East, not just Iraqis.
