The Prophets of Doom or Prophets of Survival?

Here is Victor Davis Hanson, prolific writer and naysayer:

So far, the U.S. has been able to dodge the latest terrorist bullets. So far, Afghanistan and Iraq are clinging to their newfound democracies. So far, Israel has been able to survive Hamas and Hezbollah, and these groups' state sponsors in Iran and Syria.

But unless we in the West adapt more quickly than do canny Islamic terrorists in this constantly evolving war, cease our internecine fighting and stop forgetting what we've learned about our enemies - there will be disasters to come far worse than Sept. 11.

VDH has led the ranks of those who have penned ominous warnings about the West's current direction and execution of the war on Islamic fascism:

Mark Steyn:

Absent a determination to throttle the ideology, we're about to witness the unraveling of the world.

Thomas Sowell:

It is hard to think of a time when a nation -- and a whole civilization -- has drifted more futilely toward a bigger catastrophe than that looming over the United States and western civilization today.

(and that was the opening line)

Gerard Baker:

It is hard for me to recall a time when the world was such a scary place. No one should rejoice at America’s weakness. The world is scarier still because of it.

Caroline Glick:

Our enemies give us no time for hesitation. They plan their next wars in broad daylight as our leaders squawk in the darkness of their ideological stupor.

Richard Cohen:

We can all sense war coming and a kind of crazy chronology forming like storm clouds for all to see -- 1938 becoming 1914.

Steve Emerson (on "Obsession"):

The deception is so high and so successful...that I'm afraid we're losing the battle.

And the list goes on.

We have a growing chorus of people with well founded pessimism about the West bid for survival.

The West has its "Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air". Lets hope it finds some solid ground before its too late.
