Military Review

An American professor named places where the Third World War could begin.

71
American professor, defense and security specialist Robert Farley, in an article published in The National Interest, listed five regions in which, in his opinion, a large-scale armed conflict could break out in 2018, comparable to the Third World War.


The first country on Farley’s list was the DPRK, the situation around which he considers the most serious foreign policy crisis of our time. According to him, miscalculations from both Pyongyang and Washington can easily lead to a war in which Japan and China will be drawn.

An American professor named places where the Third World War could begin.


The second region where a major conflict could flare up, he calls Taiwan. Recently, a Chinese diplomat, Lee Keksin, said that Beijing would "unify Taiwan" with the help of military force on the day American military ships moored to the island. At the same time, the PRC strengthened its military activity in the region, which the United States repeatedly opposed. In addition, Washington is increasing deliveries weapons to Taiwan.

Next on its list is Ukraine, the situation in which, according to him, remains tense: the truce in the east is constantly violated, and the protests in Kiev and "wild история"around Mikhail Saakashvili they question the stability of the current Ukrainian government. From the point of view of Farley, the government crisis can lead to a number of consequences fraught with the aggravation of the crisis - in particular, representatives of ultra-right forces can come to power, which could cause a conflict in Donbass to flare up with a new force.

The professor also considers a scenario in which Moscow allegedly strengthens its presence in Ukraine in the event of the collapse of the current government, which, in turn, can lead to a full-scale military confrontation between Russia and the West.

Farley calls NATO’s southern flank, in particular Turkey, the fourth region capable of becoming the center of the Third World War. According to him, the distance of Ankara from the EU and the United States and its rapprochement with Moscow is a harbinger of a significant change in the balance of forces in the region. Neither Turkey, nor Russia, nor the United States considers war to be a reasonable way to resolve the current diplomatic situation, the author stresses. However, a change in the balance of power may affect how events will develop in Syria, Iraq, Iran, the Balkans and the Caucasus.

Closes the list of Farley Persian Gulf. He proposes to pay attention to the confrontation between Saudi Arabia and Iran. The professor notes that there have been conflicts in this region before, but they did not spill over into world wars. However, Riyadh made it clear that it was ready to build a diplomatic and military coalition against Iran, and perhaps even include Israel.

    Looks like a professor is not very smart. The United States is not listed. But the war with the DPRK can begin precisely with American territory. Or do the states think again to sit out on the other side?

    The presence of nuclear deterrence forces in all leading countries in world geopolitics will not allow a large-scale war to break out, as is known.

There is no war anywhere in the world, the economy is stagnating, the vassals are running up, they are beginning to lay down on bucks, etc. All the same, Uncle Adam Smith is right: "If you want to improve the economy, muddle the war." Let the fools fight, but we, American well-wishers, as usual, will come to the pie section. Well, nevertheless, the adversary is as usual standard: "War, me, war!".

I believe that this hour will come, and we will avenge the staff and Europedics for humiliating Russia in the 90s (although this is also our fault), for inciting Russophobia in the world, for the genocide of Russians in the Donbass. The Cold War 2.0 should end with the destruction of the West as a civilization, and it does not matter who crushes it. It can be Islamists, Chinese, but most likely, we, the Russians, will be the grave digger of these parasites.

    An American professor named places where the Third World War could begin.

    History repeats itself ... In 1936, the sovereign country of Spain was subjected to foreign intervention by Germany and Italy. At the same time, our Red Army volunteers fought selflessly with the Nazis. In 1937, a war broke out between China and Japan, ending on September 2, 1945 with the signing of the surrender of Japan aboard the American cruiser Missouri. But for some reason, the beginning of the Second World War is considered the date of the German attack on Poland (1939).
    So it is now. The war has already blazed around the world for several years. Dozens of states participate, millions of people died. But so far, "experts" with a clever look argue when the world war could begin. Maybe they mean the final part of the world war - the apocalypse?
    It seems to me that the American ambassador will never read out loud and clear about the beginning of the US war against Russia, but at the same time they will kill Russian people in every way, somewhere on the quiet themselves, somewhere through intermediaries. Also, Russia will never declare war on the United States, but at the same time the Russians will kill the Americans, somewhere on the quiet themselves, somewhere through intermediaries.
