Topic: Who?


Who is always the question. Motive is the second question. In the past one country attacked another for more land, assets or political reasons. These days we have to add religion as a consideration and racial or ethnic considerations as motivation for war. It appears that future conflicts will center around religious or racial/ethnic dividing lines. Next, which nations have the capability to act and sustain any long term military action; or if the suspect nation(s) can obtain weapons for a long term commitment.
Suspect nations: Russia, China, India have the abilities to start and commit to a long term military action. Any Arab State, oil producing countries have the ability to start and procure weapons for a long term conflict. The list goes on and on. The US has the ability to start, sustain and finish a major conflict, so long as Obama is a one term President.

I think that the issue is clouded by the fact that many of us consider war to be between sovereign states, whereas recent history has shown that non state groups have the capability to fight, in order to influence either the debate, impose their will or shades in between.

Religion has been a rallying cry throughout history, even if it has been used to mask baser desires or aspirations. Nowadays I thimk that access to and the ability to exploit increasingly rare resources will provide the trigger, I'm thinking that water has got to come to the fore soon.

So who is going to pull the trigger? My votes are:

1. India / Pakistan
2. Iran / Saudi Arabia
3. Israel / any Arab state
4. The public / politicians

Ultimately we democracies need to accept the results of our actions, so far we've been able to ignore them, but our pigeons will come home to roost - soon.

The world as I see it:
The Cold War isn't over...It may have ended in the "communist vs capitalism" phase, but is still continuing on at "capitalism and democracy vs rest of the world".
The way I see it is:

(Fictional) Democracy
America (which is now stop trying to police the world)
Europe (which is noww being proven as a major power that is now stumbling)
South America (except maybe good old Venezuela)
Turkey (which seems to be currently neutral, but its ally is the US)
Japan (which military isn't bad nor good)
Oceania (which may prove its combat abilites to the gloomy world)
South Korea (which is still relying on US for power)
India (which is opposer of China)
Israel (very close to US despite recent disagreements)

vs

(Fictional) Opposers of democracy
Russia (which is now showing tendencies to becoming communist nowadays)
China (which is flexing its muscles nowadays)
Iran (which stands against the wall of US sanctions with a crazy prez)
Anybody wants to add some more?


Neutral
Africa, rest of the world





Judging from today's society, WWIII will probably happen in a Cold-War stylish way with no nukes.....
