OUT: “The World Is Less Violent Than It Has Ever Been”; IN: “The World Is Exploding All Over”

Sorry to indulge in nostalgia. But as the world descends into chaos, it’s comforting to remember those bygone days of two whole months ago.

June 11, 2014:

 

“The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is more educated than it’s ever been.”

August 12, 2014:

Fresh off a trip to India and Australia, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel addressed a group of Marines in San Diego, California Tuesday, and may have delivered a line that will show up in Republican campaign ads this election cycle. After updating the troops on some issues in the Pacific region and the Middle East, Hagel took questions from some of the Marines and gave a stark assessment of the global security situation: “The world is exploding all over.”

That was quick.

Any questions? Too bad.
