As you read, write, often whine and worry about “Clash of Civilizations”, know the following facts:
— Two world wars were basically European wars
— Europeans fought against each other, killed each others lot more in number, blood, and flesh than they fought against Middle Easterners or Asians
— There were few major international conflicts in the Pacific or the Indian Ocean till the mid 1900s. The Pacific Ocean was indeed like its name — Pacific. World's most war ravaged oceans were the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, both mostly European waters.
— Not a SINGLE American bomb or bullet ever dropped in the Middle East before the 1960s. America has been around as a country for over 200 years before then.
World is a chaotic place, there is no grand theme or thesis here, nor there is any grand conspiracy that anyone, except God, can pursue.
Therefore, avoid people who profess about grand narratives to explain random things, no matter who he/she is, how famous or qualified.
