Current events playing out suggests that world war III may just be closer than we think… Today we are seeing increasing state aggression throughout the world. Russia is preparing its citizens for nuclear war. China is asserting claims over land it has created in the South China Sea, North Korea continues to build and test (despite UN sanction warnings and US threats of possible military action) more and more effective ballistic missiles in the bid to expand its nuclear arsenal.
The world is quickly moving towards World War III and you should be scared. Incase you are wondering why, here are 10 Reasons we Should all be Scared Of World War III ever occurring
1. There are enough Nukes to destroy the earth
Currently, Nine countries in the world possess a total of around 15,000 nuclear weapons (these are just the documented ones) The United States and Russia account for 93 percent of them. If world war III should ever break out, there would be no escaping it.
2. World war III Would be catastrophic
Because of the development and use of nuclear weapons near the end of World War II and their subsequent acquisition by many countries, the potential risk of a nuclear devastation of Earth’s civilization and life is a common theme in speculations of a Third World War. Another major concern is the use of biological and chemical warfare.
3. Millions of people would die
World war III scenarios ranges from conventional warfare to limited or a total nuclear warfare. The consequences of a nuclear war would be disastrous – hundreds of millions of people would die, and those who survive would face cancer and other radiation sickness caused by the nuclear bombs.. The environment would also be devastated for decades afterwards.
4. Hiroshima is just a tip of the iceberg
The atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki towards the end of World war II was so powerful, it caused widespread destruction, leveled cities, and killed between 90,000 and 166,000 people in Hiroshima and between 39,000 and 80,000 in Nagasaki. And yet it is just a fraction of the size of the atomic/hydrogen bombs Russia, the U.S and other world powers now possess.
The bombs currently in the arsenal of the world’s power are more than 3,000 times as powerful as the bomb dropped on Hiroshima…
‘Doomsday’ predictions of all life on Earth being exterminated are probably over exaggerating the impact of a total nuclear warfare – but it would have a huge impact on life on our planet.
A serious nuclear conflict would leave the world far worse off than ever before says science magazine Smithsonian.com. Carbon thrown into the air would cause a huge drop in worldwide temperature, radioactive rain, etc.. Put simply, an all-out nuclear confrontation would most certainly destroy all or nearly all human life on planet earth…
6. The faith of Africa

Yes, Africa will also be affected. After the war the western world would be too busy rebuilding their countries that they would all forget about Africa.. This means that Africa will continue to decline until there would be no hope for the dark continent.
**It’s no news that Africa is a dependent continent. Some African nations even depend solely on the aids provided by the US and other foreign countries to run their country…
7. Life after the war

After the war (if atomic bombs are used), many survivors would still die a very unpleasant death, of radiation sickness. Their hair would fall out, they would be covered in spots, their skin would rot. And those who survive the first wave of sickness after the war would have a very much higher than average chance of dying of leukemia or other cancers even decades later.. Put simply, To the survivors, life as they know it will never remain the same…
