November 4, at Yes, it is true.
World war 3 is coming! Although there has been no major combat between the great powers since the Second World War, there are three key fronts emerging that make the prospect of a third global conflict alarmingly conceivable.
Since the Second World War, there has been no major war between the great powers. The original post-war European project was based around peace, social justice and harmony.
The unravelling of this project, accompanied by rising nationalism, is likely to exacerbate the dangers of war on a continent with a fraught history of bloody conflict.
In the 20th century, both world wars were unanticipated. First World War had been preceded by a prelude of serenity — the long 19th century of relative peace and stability. The great powers of Edwardian Europe had been engaged in diplomacy and trade prior to the onslaught of carnage.
During the s, the major powers were keen to avert another war hence the policy of appeasement, the initial reluctance of the US to become involved and the Nazi-Soviet pact. Throughout the Cold War, the concept of a third world war was inextricably associated with nuclear war and the MAD doctrine of Mutual Assured Destruction.
Yet it is possible that future conflict between the great powers may take the form of another cold war or even a conventional as opposed to thermonuclear hot war.
In the 21st century, there are three key fronts emerging as the loci for future wars. The first is the Europe-Russia front with a new cold war triggered by the Ukrainian conflict. The second is the Middle East cauldron centred around Isis and the Syrian war.
Evidently the irony of the US casting aspersions around violation of national sovereignty, in light of the folly of the Iraq war, seems to have been lost. The realist perspective — as articulated by John Mearsheimer in the pages of US foreign policy bible Foreign Affairs — is that the Ukrainian crisis was preceded by two decades of NATO expansionism up to the borders of Russia.
This was in contravention of promises made to respect these boundaries at the end of the Cold War. In this view, events in Ukraine have merely been the endgame of this process.
It is worth recalling that the United States did not respond amicably to Soviet interference in Cuba in the s. Such arguments have been rendered somewhat academic as they are overtaken by events. Increasing deployments of troops by both Nato and Russia, dangerous confrontations and massive war games are being played out.
The report analysed recent war games including a Russian exercise involving 80, military personnel and a set of Nato war games comprising 15, personnel.
Russia is preparing for a conflict with Nato, and Nato is preparing for a possible confrontation with Russia. If the cold warriors in the Atlanticist defence establishment and hard-liners on the Russian side have their way, then tensions are only likely to be ratcheted up.
Even on its own terms, the war on terror has been an abysmal failure.The industrial plans for Germany were designs the Allies considered imposing on Germany in the aftermath of World War II to reduce and manage Germany's industrial capacity.
