"A Wimpy World War III"

I have to agree with this recent post by Steve Kellmeyer criticizing conservative pundits and whoever else for labelling our current situation with the radical Muslims "World War III". The idea is utterly outlandish. As Steve notes, if anything, it's more like organized crime:
Islamic terrorists seem to be set up much more along the lines of organized criminal gangs than they are armies. Indeed, given the level of intra-Muslim violence, it is not unreasonable to draw comparisons between gang warfare and the current level of Islamic violence.
I understand terrorism is bad, but do people really remember what World Wars I and II were like? Quoting Steve one last time, "if this is World War III, then world wars are definitely getting pretty wimpy."
