World War 3 "IF" The war has begun!?



In this video we are going to ask IF, today, we are actually in the grip of world war 3.
We will look at recent events and compare them to events that triggered World War 1 and World War 2.
We must remember that at the start of these two huge global conflicts, they were not named world wars.
 They became world wars slowly as different crisis rolled out and spread from country to country.
Countries became allied and others enemies.
Fighting in ever more vicious battles with more and more advanced weaponry, the death toll from both wars reaching 100 million people.
Are we seeing events that could lead to a war with a death toll that would surpass the number of dead from theses world’s wars.
 Let’s take a look.
This week has seen terror attacks in London, North Korean missiles flying over Japan, The never-ending conflict in the Middle East and ethnic cleansing in Africa.
And the continuing decline in politics around the world.
Protest are daily occurrences in countries both rich and poor.
Religious persecution is taking place in many countries and effects all groups both major and minor religions.
Terrorist strikes are quickly becoming the daily norm in too many places.
It seems the world is smoldering and could burst into raging flames at any moment.



Is this the perfect confluence of events that will cause world war 3?
Or has it already begun.
We first have to remind ourselves that wars are never the same, from the days of us bashing each other’s brains in with rocks, to the silver clad knights of old, to today killing with drones and supersonic fighter jets striking targets from miles away.
War evolves and changes.
World war 3 would be no different.
This war could have already begun and may well be based on technological ability, cyber-attacks, drone strikes and other hi tech methods. All been used and continue to be used daily.
Is world war 3 a stealth war?
Global hostilities are expanding.
Financial and economic strikes being used on enemy countries.
 We see sanctions and embargoes against many of the biggest global players.
This economic warfare leading military's across the planet to prepare for war.
War games in many regions have increased with Russia and Belarus beginning major war games just this Thursday.
 This operation involving thousands of troops, tanks and aircraft on NATO's eastern edge practicing how to hunt down and destroy armed spies, among other maneuvers.
 Massive increase in propaganda from all sides as the ever increasing influence of social media and the internet is felt, fake news and political theatre as each side tries to win the propaganda war.
This is a historical time we are all witnessing  there is clear danger that due to repetitive extremely poor decisions we could be at a point when war is unavoidable or as the title of this video says we are in fact in the opening acts of world war 3.
 World war 1 was said have begun with the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, the archduke of Austria-Hungary. His death at the hands of Gavrilo Princip – a Serbian nationalist with ties to the secretive military group known as the Black Hand – propelled the European military powers towards war.
But that is the very simplified version of the truth written into the history books by the victors.
The gradual emergence of a group of alliances between major powers was partly to blame for the descent into war.
By 1914, these alliances resulted in the six major powers of Europe merging into two large groups: Britain, France and Russia formed the Triple Entente, while Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy comprised the Triple Alliance.
The assassination of Franz Ferdinand forced these countries to come to one another’s aid, this leading to declarations of war and produced a domino effect through Europe.
As the war progressed, acts of aggression forced other countries to choose an ally and join the fight.
 Others such as Australia, India and most African colonies, fought at the behest of their imperial rulers.
When the war was over Europe and much of the world lay in ruins.
 18 million dead.
The victims of the first mechanized war.
World War 2 started from problems that were left from World War 1, some would even argue that that we should really consider them one and the same.
With the time between the wars be viewed as a rest bite not an end.

In 1918, the Treaty of Versailles held Germany and Austria-Hungary responsible for World War 1 and imposed on them crippling financial sanctions, territorial dismemberment and isolation and Germany, was forced to demilitarize.

This time of hardship for the German people lead to the rise of Hitler.
Hitler Far from having lifelong military aspirations, had been a painter, he joined the Bavarian army at the age of 25 after the outbreak of World War 1. He served primarily as a runner carrying messages between the trenches.

He was decorated twice for bravery, and was injured on two separate occasions – once when he was hit in the thigh by an exploding shell, and he was temporarily blinded by mustard gas nearing the end of the war.
Germany’s eventual surrender "left Hitler uprooted and in need of a new focus"
He became an intelligence agent in Germany's diminished military and was sent to infiltrate the German Workers' Party.
It is there he found himself inspired by Anton Drexler's anti-communist, anti-Jewish doctrine and ended up developing his own strain of antisemitism.

This lead to him announcing in 1919 that the "ultimate goal must be the removal of the Jews altogether".

Gradually he began to rise through the party ranks, eventually renaming the party the National Socialist German Workers' Party which adopted the swastika as its emblem.

Hitler went on to win broad public support, attracted large donations from many.

For the next decade he rose through the ranks to then become Germany's chancellor and when President Paul Von Hindenburg died, Hitler appointed himself Führer.
Hitler quickly denounced the Treaty of Versailles, mounting furious attacks on the unfair terms of the settlement.
 The treaty incensed Germans, but it had not managed to contain Germany's potential, and by the mid-1930s the country was surrounded by weak, divided states.
Hitler and Germany took the opportunity to make a second bid for European domination.
As war engulfed Europe Japan took this time as an opportune moment to continue with the expansionist policy.
Nationalism was strong and it led to the Second Sino-Japanese war.
Japan won some initial victories in China but they failed to conquer the large country.
 Japan committed atrocities in Nanking, what is called the Nanking massacre.
The USA opposed Japan's expansionist actions and the brutal acts of the Nanking massacre and laid stringent economic sanctions.
Japan was also not able to get oil that was crucial for her economic growth. Japan went into tripartite alliance with Germany and Italy.
 This further strained the relationship with USA.
Japan decided that the only way to counter the crippling economic sanctions was to go on the offensive. The Japanese armed forces developed plans to attack USA.
Then attacked on Pearl Harbor.
We see patterns forming in the historical record of key actions that lead to point when the only choice these nations felt they had was war.
We see parallels today.
Both wars origins had strong links to economic hardship, sanctions and trade disagreements.
The USA currently holds sanctions against six countries and against peoples from 16 countries.
The complicated economic ties with China and the increasing national debt, much of that debt Chinese owned, have seen economic warfare openly on display for the last few years.
The last Super power desperately trying to hold onto its position as the newer economic powers rise.
This then has leads us into another cause of the two previous world wars.
Expansionism.
We see countries expanding into new areas almost daily now.
Regime change is happening with an alarming regularity, this destabilizing many parts of the globe and forcing countries with opposing ideas and ideals to share borders.
This creating yet more conflict.
All nations are guilty of this as they carve up the planet with what seems like to no concern about the implications this will have.
This leading us into the final sign that we could be living in the beginning of world war 3.
Displacement.
We are seeing large amounts of migration across the globe.
We took a look at this with our video “If we need borders”
as we all see each and every day many people are choosing to leave their home country, maybe to chase economic opportunity or to flee on going conflicts.
This has led to more tension as these displaced people look for a new home.
These migrants bring with them their customs and beliefs and these often clash with the societies they are moving to.
This then forms into conflict.
Which then causes the formation of groups that wish to fight for or against these beliefs and values.
This leads to civil violence …terrorism.
And as we all know that is very much something we are dealing with today.
So, it would seem that the world is in fact at the same point or at least similar to as it was before the two world wars.
Why do we not see “your country needs you “posters everywhere encouraging people to join the fight?
Maybe because or country well governments don’t actually need us.
Much of warfare is now computerized as was mentioned at the start of the video, drones and cyber-attacks are how countries attack one another today.
The days of massive deployments of troops are gone. It’s not cost effective.
The use of high precision missiles and maybe eventually nukes.
(Looking at you North Korea.)
Is the most efficient way to destroy a country,  then send in an occupying force to colonize that area once the majority of enemy has been wiped been out.
This sounds like the world we live in today Afghanistan, Iraq and others all falling to this military tactic.
 
Is this world war 3?
Is world war 3 the war we sit and watch online?
What do you think?
