World War 3? How a Third World War Will Look Like?
If the effect of World War 1 and 2 have left an indelible print in the sands of time, then WORLD WAR 3 is undoubtedly going to tear the World apart. World War 1 occurred between July 1914 and November 11, 1918, leaving a casualty of over 17 million dead people. Though World War 1 had many causes, we can narrow it down to the Defensive agreements between European countries. The then Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia who were Allies with Russia, and Russia came in to fight with them.
Germany who was Austria-Hungary’s Ally then declared war on Russia when they invaded their allies. France who was the ally of Russia later declared war on Germany and Austria-Hungary who were attacking their partners. Germany then attacked France through routes in Belgium, and both France and Belgium were Allies of Britain. Britain then retaliated, hitting Germany hard and also going against Austria-Hungary. And Japan followed the train and joined the war on the German side. The fight was later to draw in Italy and the United States of America. The level of carnage and destruction experienced was unprecedented.
World War 2 broke out two decades later but followed the trend of World War 1. Military agreements between Germany, Italy, and Japan saw them invade Poland who was allied with Great Britain and France. That drew this two Super-Powers into the fray, and America was to join since they were allies of Britain. And surely we have learned something from these two great wars. And that is that if there will be a WORLD WAR 3, the effect could destroy the world.
WORLD WAR 3 will be characterized by the use of new and sophisticated weapons straight out our favorite war movies. There are now invisible warships, super submarines and even unbeatable fighter and bomber jets at the disposal of many nations. The armies, navies and Air force of the World Super Power’s are getting the best gear and kit.
The US Navy has got the USS Zumwalt, a 3.4 billion pounds submarine destroyer. It is a 610-foot long invisible ship armed with 60 rockets and can hit targets 70 miles away. Russia also has the K-239 Severodvinsk, a new silent but deadly nuclear-powered submarine with an unlimited target range. Great Britain on their part have the F-35B Lightning state-of-the-art fighter planes. They are equipped with laser-guided missiles and bombs, and they have a speed of up to 1,200 mph. Britain also has the HMS Daring, an advanced warship, Russia has the T-14 Armata, a mighty tank, and the Ilyushin II-80 a dooms-day plane. With all this state-of-the-art equipment, WORLD WAR 3 will outweigh World War 1 and 2 in both casualty and consequence.
What consequences will WORLD WAR 3 leave?
War is a disastrous incident which should, if possible, not happen at any cost. It is as catastrophic as it can be. There have been two world wars already and the next one, WORLD WAR 3 will be more deadly. By the time this occurs, destruction will touch its peak leaving people dead and ensuring that damaged properties are beyond repair. Most likely, the United States will be dragged into a conflict with either China and Japan or China and the Philippines. The consequences of this WORLD WAR 3 which will most likely involve China and USA would be a global financial Armageddon. The reason is the fact that these two countries, regarding economy, are the pillars of the world. Cyber, as well as, space-based weapons would be heavily dwelt on thereby knocking out each other’s electrical grids.
How experts view WORLD WAR 3?
Experts, over the years, have anticipated and predicted that sooner or later, there would be WORLD WAR 3. That, according to them, would cripple the economy, leaving millions dead as a result of the advancement in technology. About the US-Korea conflict, a source said that the North might carry out a simultaneous launch of ballistic missiles within a few days. This action would be a protest to United States’ show of military prowess. These are Hwasong-14 inter-continental ballistic missiles known as ICBM. The second would be Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missile known as IRBM. The take of these experts is that it would be the most devastating of all, putting everything to a halt.
Would WORLD WAR 3 end the human race?
The question which bothers the minds of people as regards WORLD WAR 3 is whether it would end the humans. This issue has its answer to be yes, as well as, no. There could be a bio-warfare which would result in a genetically created plague. Bio-weapons have become a big concern based on the fact that they can create airborne diseases. These diseases can wipe out cities within days or even an entire country in a matter of weeks or months. A nuclear war is the most likely answer for a war like this based on the advancements which have occurred. At the moment, nine countries have nuclear weapons while others want to get it. This question is still in the debate by analysts, but there is a high probability that it is possible.
