What this officer says is frightening. Either way there will be a war. If this is true the United States will be drawn in. There will be no escaping that. It could also precipitate other major powers to take sides.
I hope the world will remember World War One. Austria-Hungary v Serbia. The conflict should have stayed between those two.
But the powers that were took sides and the Fist and Second World Wars were the result. We cannot let that happen this time. There cannot be a good outcome for anyone to a World War III.
The Powers That be now need to be discussing what if this situation takes place? What will our response be? It must be for the good of the world as a whole.
