We have all been on edge for quite some time anxiously waiting to see where all this tension between the US and North Korea is going, right? Most of us have accepted that WW3 might very well be upon us.
Paul Miller, former National Security Council member supporting the former President George W. Bush as well as Barack Obama is bringing a lot of things to the light in more recent times. He did an interview with Express and people everywhere are talking about it. During this interview, Miller focused mostly on explaining how a war comparable to WW3 would unfold if it involved nuclear weapons in general.
Miller says that the first major changes we would notice would be changes that made communicating over the internet or satellite completely impossible. Dividing the people is a very important task when it comes to these things. Once no one can communicate properly a series of standoff attacks with missiles and bombers would most likely come next.
Miller said the longer those conflicts carried on the more imminent the nuclear explosions would be. WW3 would be something that happens slowly, not overnight. That being said, even Miller himself pointed out that he could be wrong about all of this. Miller believes avoiding war is a good idea. Miller also believes that the war would not come from North Korea but from elsewhere.
Writing for Foreign Policy, he said: “Four years ago, I predicted Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Here’s my next prediction, which by now will strike many people as obvious: The Baltics are next, and will pose one of President Donald Trump’s first and greatest tests.
“Putin will instigate an ambiguous militarised crisis using deniable proxies, probably in the next two years.
“Perhaps Russian-speaking Latvians or Estonians – a quarter of Latvians and Estonians are ethnically Russian – will begin rioting, protesting for their rights, claiming to be persecuted, asking for ‘international protection’.
“A suspiciously well armed and well trained ‘Popular Front for the Liberation of the Russian Baltics’ will appear. A few high-profile assassinations and bond bombings bring the Baltics to the edge of civil war. A low-grade insurgency may emerge.”
Dr. Miller added that Putin and other Russians who see the world through the lens of Russian religious nationalism believe the West is inherently a threat because of its “degeneracy and globalism”.
What do you think about all of this? Who do you think will start WW3? I for one could see it being us easily, especially with how things have been in more recent times.
