10 horrific wars that can start in the world literally tomorrow
War leads mankind throughout its history. People are developing, inventing new technology, do incredible discovery, but at the same time continue to kill each other. Skeptics believe that the world stands on the brink of war, and called the "top ten" of potential military conflicts that may erupt in the near future.
1. Sino-Russian Siberian War
A superpower is going through hard times. Another superpower actually ready to conquer the world. At the moment, China and Russia are the "big players" in the territory to the east of the Ural Mountains. Both countries have a huge army. Both have nuclear weapons. Both expansionist. And both have a claim on Siberia - sparsely populated, resource-rich territory is bigger than Canada. Siberia has long been in the interests of China.
Recently, Celestial has been actively buying up sections of the Siberian land. Beijing today is beginning to assert historical claims, at least in the eastern part of Siberia, where many ethnic Chinese live. For Moscow, it is becoming more of a problem. The potential of Sino-Russian war over the territory of Siberia, can have devastating consequences and there are only two possible outcomes. Or the Chinese army otvoyuet most of Russia or Moscow would unleash a nuclear war. In any case, the death toll would have catastrophic consequences for the entire world.
2. War of the Baltic
In recent years, Europe has started very worried about the possibility of war with Russia. According to the former deputy commander of NATO Alexander Richard Shirreff, this is quite possible scenario. Shirreff said a possible cause of Russia's unwillingness to be surrounded by NATO countries. According to the British general, in May 2017 Moscow will pave a land corridor through Ukraine linking the Crimea with Russia, and then invade one or more of the Baltic countries. As Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are members of NATO, it can lead to a mad West war with Russia. What that means, do not explain.
3. The North Korean spring
This summer, a senior North Korean diplomat in London defected to South Korea. It was just the latest in a string of incidents that point to the imminent collapse of the regime of Kim Jong-un. Kim fell out with powerful allies, such as China. He is no longer able to provide a luxurious life of the country's elite.
Cheap smartphone technology has allowed people of the country for the first time in decades to see how living in the rest of the world. When this is about to break out the crisis in the country, in comparison with which hunger in 1994 will look like a cakewalk. This may result in a revolution in the DPRK. People can go to the streets, the army can be divided into warring factions and the country will begin to hell.
4. The guerrilla war LIH in Europe
Faced with the air strikes, economic shocks and the onset of the armies of many countries, LIH is on the verge of collapse. But do not expect that the terrorists just suck it up. Most likely, the jihadists will compete directly in Europe with the help of deadly urban guerrilla warfare. Large cities in Europe may turn into cemeteries, where the streets of explosions and gunfire can be heard every day. With such a scenario, the first to suffer, France and Belgium, and then Germany and the UK.
5. The civil war in Venezuela
On the streets of Caracas lawless. Ordinary household products simply can not be smoking, inflation is more than 500 percent and may soon reach 1600 per cent. The country has become the norm civil protests, violence, corruption, police brutality and paranoid government that refuses to see anything. Potential end result of this anarchy can be a civil war. As Maduro does not want to retire, hungry and angry people of Venezuela can take up arms. It is also possible mass defections from the police and the army. But even a coup could be the best case scenario in Venezuela. The history of Latin America shows that such a step is likely to lead to reprisals and bloodshed in the horrific scale.
6. The second cultural revolution in China
The Cultural Revolution when Chairman Mao was a stunningly brutal. Killed about 1, 5 million people. Millions of people were tortured and mutilated. Widespread corruption, popular discontent and a sense of betrayal escalated into a deadly massacre. But what happens in 2016, when China has become a developed country. China has a long history of peasant revolts. Mao came to power as a result of the uprising, which killed eight millions. Several decades ago, the Boxer Rebellion led to more than 100 000 deaths.
In just a few decades before, Taiping uprising has killed 20-30 million (according to some sources, more than 70 million). Now, despite all the development in China, are 500 popular protests every day, and every year about 100,000 erupting riots. If suddenly break out the next financial crisis, it will happen again catastrophic bloodshed.
Bosnia № 7. 2
In the 1990s, the world watched in horror as the breaking up of Bosnia. During the ethnic cleansing killed about 100,000 civilians. In 1995, as a result of two "state within a state" were created: Bosnia and Herzegovina for the Bosniaks and Croats, and the Republika Srpska for the Serbs. The trouble is that this new division is also unstable. Ethnic divisions created a world of growing tension, bitter resentment and desire for revenge. Today, everyone wants the best. Youth unemployment is over 60 percent, which is the highest level in the world. Serbs and Croats still want to separate. Bosniaks still want to live together. Serbian leader recently literally "threw a lighted match into the powder keg." Ethnic Serbs hold a referendum on whether to secede from Bosnia need. As a result, the voting might again break out horrific civil war in Bosnia.
8. The revolution in Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia during the "Arab Spring" got off lightly. At that time, both in Tunisia and Egypt were toppled dictators, and in Syria and Libya started a real war, members of the royal family in Saudi Arabia managed to hold on to power. At least, until now. According to the American Institute of Washington, the conditions in Saudi Arabia today are similar to those that preceded the Egyptian revolution.
The nation is ready to explode. The collapse in oil prices has led the country in which a very high level of expenditure on the brink of bankruptcy. Youth unemployment in the country, in which mostly young people live out of control. Anger among the educated twentysomethings teenagers just rolls over. Local minorities rebel and militia LIH relentless attack. It is easy to imagine a revolution which breaks out in connection with this discontent.
9. Indo-Pakistan nuclear war
In winter 2008, the world stepped one foot in the grave. This year, the stand-off between India and Pakistan almost turned into a nuclear war. In the end, diplomats barely managed to resolve the conflict. But relations between the two countries is still very tense. If everything happens differently next time, it could mean the end of the world. Nuclear war between India and Pakistan would lead to the fact that Delhi, Mumbai, Karachi and Islamabad will be in the fire, and tens of millions will perish in this inferno. Nuclear winter destroyed crops across Asia, leading to massive Holodomor. According to estimates, the dead about two billion people. And such a terrible conflict may provoke a situation in Kashmir - a region claimed by both countries.
10. South China Sea or the Third World War
The only thing that could be more terrible than the war between Pakistan and India, is the war in China and the United States. Especially if the conflict will be drawn to countries such as the Philippines, South Korea, Japan and many others. Sticking point could be the South China Sea - a region that is likely to trigger a third world war. Over the past few years, China has aggressively expanded in the sea space. This is mainly due to the smaller countries that are US allies. America responded with an official warning, and China in response to expressed explicit threats. If it escalates into a war, the world will perish.
