The Clash!

So, it seems that The Clash of the Civilization is now slowly, but surely on its way to materializing. I’m now watching Al Arabiya satellite channel, and they’ve got this extensive review of the Muslim world’s reactions to the Pope’s remarks. Regardless of what he meant or whether he was right or wrong, I personally think it wasn’t very smart to say what he said, especially at such a time. There’s this steady buildup that’s happening on both sides of the fence and I think it’s a question of “when” and not “if” that some catastrophic conflict will happen. The problem with such a scenario is that it will force you to take sides, and I don't really want to join either side!

I've always had the same dilemma. I can see the good and the bad of both sides, and there's always more bad than good. I wonder why there aren't any "moderate" sides of anything anymore. When I write a story my editor always says, "Don't just give me both extremes, give me everything in between." Somehow it's hard to find the inbetween.

I don't want to join sides either, i'm too tired of this already and it's only just snowballing out of control.
God, going by the cartoons, i think this one's going to be around a long long time.

That of course is just a thought.
