Is World War III inevitable?

Recommended Posts

This issue worries the entire world community, judging by the belligerent actions of the United States, which undermine stability not only in the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East, but also everywhere. I think it’s not worth mentioning that America always and everywhere pokes its nose into others` affairs.

Everything would have been more or less calm, if not for the US withdrawal from the INF Treaty in 2018 and the subsequent development of prohibited cruise missiles. Then the sale of colossal arms to Saudi Arabia, countless sanctions and unfounded accusations against a number of countries.

Analysts believe that America’s disrespect and history distortion, its arrogance towards all other nations and endless hypocrisy can ultimately force the world to respond. Where there is controversy, a lack of compromise and instability, there definitely begins a war. Or not?

History reports that America did not start WWI or WWII, but it did finish them.

Somebody else will also start WWIII.

No one can give a concrete answer about who finished the war. It was done thanks to the joint work of the countries of the anti-Hitler coalition

I challenge the originator of the thread as a spambot from Russia and not an individual. It keeps coming back using a new name. It is not a person. It is an automated script.

Does seem like a bot, even so, its analysis is quite shallow.

The issue is larger than the collapse of the INF Treaty, that's merely an outcome not a cause.

The cause is the collapse of what Robert McNamara coined Mutual Vulnerability,  which the public knows as Mutually Assured Destruction.

The concept is that nuclear weapons are only for deterrence and that the  point is to avoid a nuclear war altogether.

What has broken down is that technology is reaching the point where Ballistics Missile Defense actually works.

So it was the Bush Administration's withdrawal from the 1972 ABM treaty which incited the collapse of the 1987 INF treaty.

At the same time, the Russians are attempting to take back their Near Abroad quasi empire.

So what you have now is a theater thermonuclear standoff in Central Europe between BMD and INF

That could escalate to WWIII, but not necessarily, could just be a theater thermonuclear war without an interpolar exchange.
