GUEST BLOG: Pat O’Dea – Stop the War!

1,2,3,4, Stop The War, 2,4,6,8, It’s Not Too Late

A naval mutiny and internal revolt in Germany ended World War 1.
Millions of anti-war protesters in the US mobilised to end to the war in Vietnam.

The Second World War was fought to its bloody conclusion, with total victory of one side over the other.

Just as in the 1930s tensions between the world’s Super Powers are again at breaking point. There is a powder keg in the room, Vladimir Putin is the little boy in the corner playing with matches.

A new imperialist global re-division of the world has begun, World War III is a very real possibility. If Nato, the US and Russia become fully militarily engaged in Europe, (which is a real possibility) China will take the opportunity to invade the “Breakaway Province of Taiwan”. Nothing is surer.
18 million people were killed in World War 1, 60 million in World War II, with the advance in modern weapons, how many will be killed before the new Super Power redivision of the world is settled?
Who knows?
But what I do know, is that even on the brink of World War III Russia as the aggressor will not stop its expansionism until it is stopped, either by its rivals, or by internal revolt.

To avoid World War III, I am counting on the latter.
