No country in this World can bear the loss from the World War. As per the today’s scenario, the chances of World War 3 are at its peak. Recently, US President Donald Trump ordered two US navy warships to launch 59 missiles, which fall down on an air base near Homs. The UK called the deadly reply, which totally destroyed the airbase personnel. The Pentagon disclosed to Russia that it had given prior warning to them before launching the missile strike. The president of Russia Vladimir Putin has sent more than 4,000 troops to Syria to support Assad, who has been accused of war crimes.
Several claims that the action was consistently avoided under the Obama administration in spite of his talk of ‘red line’ being crossed, which may ultimately make a way to conflict between old foes Russia and America. Some also believe that the move made fewer chances of a war, including Britain’s former ambassador to Moscow, Sir Anthony Brenton, who thinks that while Putin is gearing up for a war, he doesn’t want one as his military is weaker than the West’s. He said to Daily Mirror last year that they don’t want war. “They do not want war. They would lose. These shows of strength are not an intention to fight, but a signal that fighting must be avoided,” he said. If the third world war took place, then it will be a question that where would it start, how will it start, and who’s going to win?
The countries like Russia and Iran have cleared that they will respond to further American military actions following in the US Tomahawk missile strike in Syria. “We will respond to any aggression,” the command center for the two countries allied groups said in a joint statement. “What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well,” added in a statement. The president of Iran Hassan Rouhani condemned “flagrant US aggression on Syria” after the missile attacks on a Syrian air base.
How the World War 3 could start?
We all know about the relationship between China and Russia, but now it’s just like a cold war between them. The stressed relationships between the world’s major military players mean the occurrence of another global conflict has been raised yet again. The participation of Russia and America in the war in the Syria has created a situation where the two nations are impacting their relationships. The Russian leader Vladimir Putin has deployed warships to the Baltic Sea carrying nuclear capable missiles. It was strategically placed to have European cities in their sights that are what Russian media claimed. In last some years, Russia has involved in conflicts in Syria, Georgia, and Ukraine. They have also revealed their Satan 2 nuclear missiles, which is alleged to be the most powerful warhead ever made. The Russians have to do something if the World War 3 does kick off and if it ever did happen, it would happen miles away from Syria.
The professor of the National Defense University in Washington DC Paul D Miller said that the Baltic state is next in Russia’s mind. He also said that Putin won’t use conventional troops. They will recreate what happened in Ukraine and bring back the patriotism of national Russians in the country. “”Putin will instigate an ambiguous militarized crisis using deniable proxies, probably in the next two years,” he added. The shocking presidential win of Donald Trump of US leads to the conjecture that his fiery character could lead to World War. The president also admitted that it’s very scary to have his finger on the nuclear button and to be familiar with the consequences of all his actions. Before executing the Tomahawk strike on Syria, the president is said to rely on veteran military experts instead of the political operatives who had conquered the policy in the first weeks of his presidency. “He had a lot of questions and said he wanted to think about it, but he also had some points he wanted to make. He wanted the options refined,” an official said. According to the United States Constitution, the president must obtain congressional approval before taking the nation into a war against a sovereign state that has not attacked or threatened to attack the US or its allies.
The Role of UK in World War three
If the recently retired commander of the joint forces commands Richard Barrons to be believed, then the UK is completely powerless of defending itself against an attack from a country like Russia. He also gave a scathing assessment of the UK military in a 10-page private memorandum to the defense secretary Sir Michael Fallon. According to the Financial Times, Barrons said in a document, “The capability that is foundational to all major armed forces has been withered by design. Here is a sense that modern conflict is ordained to be only as small and as short term as we want to afford, and that is absurd. The failure to come to terms with this will not matter at all if we are lucky in the way the world happens to turn out, but it could matter a very great deal if even a few of the risks now at large conspire against the UK.”
Who could win the war?
It is just impossible to answer the question that who would win the war. If you are standing it only on hardware than it seems like that the US will be in the best position to win. The United States is the only country who has fifth generation fighter jets – 187 F-22s and F-35, which is still to be out of the testing phase. On the other side, Russia is working on one stealth fighter and China is working on four. Talking about Submarines, the US Navy has 14 ballistic missile submarines with a united 280 nuclear missiles. They also enjoy four guided missile submarines with 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles each and 54 nuclear attack submarines. Whereas Russia has only 60 submarines, but they are said to have exceptional stealth capabilities. They are also working on a 100-megaton nuclear torpedo. Coming to China, they have five nuclear attack submarines, 53 diesel attack submarines, and nuclear made ballistic missile submarines to date.
It is not easy to say who will win the World War if it takes place, but we hope that World War never happens as no country is strong enough to bear its losses. The global war not just crashes the economy, but it also takes the lives of many innocents.
