The fact that William Carr was talking about this back before the 60s and that the events talked about in the letter seem to be happening now, means maybe that there is some truth behind it. Someone at least had some insight into the way in which the world was moving.
In saying that though My mother remembers her Father (he was a Rat of Tobruk) telling her (when she was young) the 3rd war will be fought over the Middle East!! Even Churchill back in 1899 in a book he wrote talked about Muslims! The bit in brackets is often taken out when being quoted!
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, (THOUSANDS BECOME THE BRAVE AND LOYAL SOLDIERS OF THE QUEEN; ALL KNOW HOW TO DIE) but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."

There is a sudden SHTF event, based on what you were doing before logging onto forum, what is the last thing you were doing before the event and what would be the first thing you would grab (other than a family member)?
Watching Robot wars on Youtube and would grab a torch!
