World War III ‘Almost Guaranteed’
Even as the world is dizzy under the assailment of violence and conflict, Pentagon has confessed that World War III is looming large, as outlined by We Are Anonymous, a group that is maneuvering the hacking of government websites.
“A conventional conflict in the near future will be extremely lethal and fast, and we will not own the stopwatch,” Major General William Hix stated at a future-of-the-army panel in Washington.
General Hix also mentioned that China and Russia’s armies are growing to be increasingly technological and that the Pentagon is getting prepared for violence on a scale that the United States Army has not witnessed since Korea.
His commentary wes also echoed by Lt Gen Joseph Anderson and Chief of Staff, Gen Mark A. Milley, who detailed war between nation states as “almost guaranteed.”
The US-Russia conflict is increasing, and this relationship is the worst since the Cold War with the Soviet Union. Russia started to boost its military operations in Syria in order to capture Aleppo to support the Syrian government.
Moscow attempted to keep the US from snooping in its affairs. Nevertheless, Secretary of State John Kerry nagged President Barack Obama to intervene in Syria and face the outcomes. Even a nuclear deterrent is acceptable, he recommended.
There is apparently a “proxy war”, consequently, in Syria with the daggers drawn between the Big Two. Gen Mark Milley, Army Chief of Staff, stated at the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing that a Russian official had proclaimed that Russia would triumph if it declares a conventional war in Europe.
Even in its sparring with China, the US appears to be getting into deep water. The Permanent Court of Arbitration Ruling on China’s nine-dash-line claim in the South China Sea demonstrated that the US is planning to set sail under the aegis of the Freedom of Navigation principle. It has made the Chinese livid.
Defense Minister Chang Wanquan stated that China is gearing up for an oceanic clash. There appears to be testing of nuclear weapons and drawing up plans for military drills in the region. The US has disclosed that “China has tested an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile, which is capable of striking everywhere in the world within half an hour.”
What kind of a World War would it be then, if it leaves no world behind?
Maybe we need not get too stressed about it, as we may not even be around to find out.
