Are we sitting on a ticking time bomb?
The immediate cause of the First World War was the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, the archduke of Austria-Hungary. His death at the hands of Gavrilo Princip – a Serbian nationalist with ties to the secretive military group known as the Black Hand.
The second world war was started when Adolf Hitler’s Germany invaded Poland in an unprovoked attack on a sovereign nation.
The image below evokes emotions of uncanny nostalgia and deja vu in the minds of many students of history and global warfare. Global peace is in a perilous state. The corporation between the US & Russia 2 of the global super powers are at an all time low and terrorism is a global security dilemma.
I don’t wish this upon the world but no more than ever we need cool heads at the helm of global decision making.
