Are we sleepwalking into WW3?


A day after Finland officially joined NATO, the head of NATO explains how the plan is to also include Ukraine in the military “defensive” alliance. If that happens, it will likely trigger article 5 :

Enshrined within Article 5 of its founding treaty, NATO allies see “ an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all.” Written over seventy years ago with the threat of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe in mind.

NATO has been growing steadily, reaching the doorstep of Russia.

Prof John Mearsheimer argues that the West, NATO and the USA in particular are the main responsible for the war in Ukraine.

For the French historian Emmanuel Todd, the 3rd world war has already started.

In my mind NATO is a publicly declared alliance, where it’s de facto opponents are an unspoken operational alliance.

  • In blue, the NATO Alliance and the countries that are NATO aligned / dependent.
  • In red, the countries that either support Russia invasion of Ukraine, or who did not condemn it at the UN.

The world is no longer under one super power (USA), it has become multipolar. The once colonies, no longer want to obey, they want to assert their own position in the world.

Either the USA and NATO allow for a multipolar world to exist, or we are sleepwalking into World War 3.
