WWIII seems like a scary throwback to our past, to two world wars in the past century. And it is a scary proposition. What makes it even scarier is that we may be closer to the brink of a nuclear conflict than you may be aware.
If you follow the history of the previous two world wars, then you will know that they were the effect of small actions that triggered entangling alliances between countries to draw numerous countries into the conflict. For example, World War I was triggered by the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria by a Bosnian Serb. This led to Austria-Hungray to declare war on the Kingdom of Serbia, and, because of all the treaties that each country had signed, other countries were drawn into the conflict.
If you haven’t yet realized it, the modern-day comparison is with the conflict in Syria and issues such as Turkey shooting down a Russian plane. Will this cause Russia to declare war on Turkey? Would that cause the U.S. to be drawn into a conflict on the side of Turkey? Would that cause NATO to get involved because of U.S. involvement.
Some think that the U.S. and Russia are already posturing while preparing for the possibility of conflict.
And don’t forget that both Russia and the U.S. have plenty of nuclear weapons.
Regardless of your thoughts on this information, having your stuff ready to disappear would seem to be a good idea.
