Broad-sword use of the word, Arab, duly noted and now apologizing for.
It is easy to forget Christian brethren in Arab lands and that is wrong. I am sorry for that.
There is a world-wide cultural war going on, initiated by radical Islam. Even Russia has to deal with it. Historically Christian lands and cultures (even if they currently are only nominally Christian, like the US) are the targets of radical Islam.
They will bring harm on their moderate Muslim, secular and Christian countrymen.
Western culture may very well go down in flames. Not by the radical Muslims (although they will claim victory) but by its own weakness, corruption and immorality.
The competing cultures will be that of China vs. Islamic culture.
If radical Islam wants to engage the battle with them, it will awaken a tiger it really doesn't wish to tangle with.
The West has difficulty defending itself, due to its own self-doubt, political correctness and the vulnerability of its economy and open borders to serious retaliation, not to mention dependence on oil. That won't be a problem for China.
If anyone flies a plane into one of their buildings, they will retaliate with thoroughness and not alot of consideration for collateral damage and casualties. They have the population to occupy - not to build democracy, but to secure the oil for themselves. Again, they won't be there to win a kindness contest in world opinion.
So, if radical Islam ever takes on the Chinese, to borrow a song title from Pink Floyd, "Run Like Hell."
