David Brooks, the New York Times columnist, identifies "the biggest threat to world peace right now" as "the possibility of a wave of sectarian strife building across the Middle East." One British politician is warning that the conflict in Syria raises "the spectre of a third world war." Another news outlet headlines: "Could Syria ignite World War 3?"
This alarming report comes from Jim Denison, a Christian Post columnist.
Iranian lawmakers are warning that a military strike on Syria would lead to an attack on Israel.
