The Hum of Running Silent- Running Deep

Reader comment on item: How Much Can Air Power Achieve?
in response to reader comment: Ho-hum again.

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), May 6, 2015 at 13:05

In the deep recesses of minds conjuring all forms of scenarios in which one or another scheme of global conquest are stirring; and then 'poooff;' terror all around as one of those schemes actually tips the hand that would seek to conquer all, only to find it has been tried before; and many died trying.

Life today is anything but ho-hum unless one has serious conscience searing (and many do, as a matter of fact); and what is about to be released upon the Middle East, indeed the world, will sear more than conscience, if any of the scenarios you have proffered come to reality in never before seen times.

As the world appears to be devolving itself in some parapsychological games of thrones, it cannot be helped but to notice that as much as many would dismiss all such things as 'much ado about nothing,' all of things things do contribute to a Biblical conclusion, even as those naysayers are saying nay.

Going back to the orignal premises of these comments, does airpower, even air superiority, bring an unwilling opponent to their knees? This would only be true if full decimation is achieved. But we read that the fight is with the prince of the power of the air; with principalities, powers unseen: does that count?

These 'minor' clashes do have an unseen conclusion; that they will indeed lead to a more formidable array of battle talent of forces which were enemies in teh past, but now move into a foray not of thier choosing; but they have been chosen and the names are written on heretofore unseen charts.

The noise and chatter of the battles heretofore seen tell nothing of the battles unseen, silent in their cunning to stalk the unwilling and unwitting, maybe from the air power, but coming nonetheless, with and for the recompense of truth, to be meted out in sure measure that will be anything but ho-hum.
