"What Happened To World War 3?"

In her post on choosing a new acronym for the Global War On Terror (or GWOT for short), Lorie Byrd writes, “WW4 is possibly most accurate, but what happened to WW3? Vote at The Astute Blogger.”

I’m not sure if The Astute Blogger was making an astute homage, but in his brilliant essay last year titled “World War IV“, Norman Podhoretz explains the history behind what he calls World War III, and what most of us called the Cold War.
