The dawn of WWIII?

As Gerald Celente commonly says:

"When the bailout bubble bursts, the only trick left will be to send them to war... We are in the beginning of the first great war of the 21st century."

Obviously, we've been at war for the last 10 years, but now it seems the wheels of the war machine are starting to pick up speed.

NATO Helicopters Fire on Pakistani Troops
Although NATO claimed it was responding to an unprovoked attack, Pakistan lodged a “strong protest,” stating that its soldiers were merely responding to an illegal incursion into Pakistani airspace.

Pakistan has, understandably, been not too happy about our countless unannounced invasions and bombings. They've told us several times to back off and leave them alone, and we only respond with more and more agitation. It's pretty obvious we -want- to provoke them, no doubt to justify even more military spending, more conquest, and more crackdowns on personal civil liberties. Unlike the rest of the area, Pakistan is a very crucial nation. In addition to having nuclear weapons, they're also close allies with China. It doesn't take a genius to see that this is very turbulent territory indeed.
