What is confirming if the World War III is raging in full flames. In a way it´s already a World War III raging in full flames.
If compared to the previous WW I and WW II, what constitutes might be if several countries fight against each other on a wider spectrum. For example the old war with Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, Kosovo, Montenegro & Serbia, equal to old Yugoslavia Bosnia war, was not a WW III. It was a war that split Yugoslavia into new states and the rings on the water felt all over europe. And still does. Those born 1995 will probably live for ever as if the war was way back in history. They might live as if war would never happen again in Europe. It could too easily start again though. Just imagine if the current slightly fascist-coloured Hungarian regime would start to do very nasty things to minorities. Or the rise of groups of people who have been part of europe for over 500 and maybe 1000 or more years all over europe, and especially in Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary would suddenly say: “Enough is enough” and their fight for their rights to be recognized as equals suddenly turned into a raging war, as the western european countries agree with them. Back in 1985 I remember feeling that Communist Europe, Eastern Europe, Warsaw pact, was´nt going to fall in my lifetime, or at least not in the near future. And how wrong I was. 1989 & 1990 things had been put so much into motion that the world we all knew five years earlier was no more. And who believed the Arab Spring would turn things around completely so suddenly and so quickly.
History could teach us something if we only allowed it.
Remember this back in 2003? The Anger European leaders felt at American Rumsfeld calling European opposition countries to join in waging war, such as France, Germany, Sweden etcetera as “Old Europe”. When Europe hoped to not start the Iraqi War. What if a “No War” had won instead, and USA & UK had let the inspections for Saddams so-called weapon of mass destruction had been taken into account instead. When Swede Hans Blix told there were NO findings of WOD in Iraq. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld didn’t like to listen – they instead started to slander all those who didn’t agree with them. They couldn’t accept that Iraq & Afghanistan wasnt the same thing at that time. I believe strongly that D. Cheney had his target on Iraq all along since Kuwaiti war ended in 1990, when they didn’t remove Saddam back then. The result of that decisions back in 2003 in part show us what we see and experience today. It wasnt the only reason and cause for today’s situation, but probably a strong ingredient. History already tell us something, and will tell us even more in 50 years from now, that the decisions made in 2003, was a strong ignition all for the horrible things we see today.
People really should read the great book “March of Folly ” by Barbara Tuchman from early age in schools. And politicians should have it as their default introductory literature before they are allowed to govern. But that is not how life work.
Here the interesting article in British The Guardian Newspaper back in 2003 when the Iraqi war wasnt raging. When USA Rumsfeld traveled to Europe trying to get them on board to invade Iraq. http://gu.com/p/qg28/tw via
Is World War III currently raging in full flame, and where?
The Middle East and the fact it affects the entire world in one way or the other, yes. It is my own private opinion saying it is.
