How cold is the cold war?

Posted: December 24, 2012 in Crazyness, Fantasy, Real Life, Uncategorized

Well here goes, firstly apologies for a lack of recent postings. There has been very little time in my schedule to post anything.

Now enough of my sadness, it’s that time again! Time for me to ramble on to you about clever stuff!

Today I am going to be talking about something a little scary so if you get scared I recommend you do not read this post. (but still please follow @loobleblog on twitter)

Have you ever wondered about world war 3? The odds are probably not, that is why I am going to tell you just how close we are to the next beginning of the world war, or more correctly the thawing of the cold war.

The reason for that last statement is that the cold war NEVER ENDED! To this day there is still one place on this planet where socialism and communism stand toe-to-toe with the only divide being a concrete slab. This is the De-Militarized Zone (DMZ) in Korea. The 2 Korea-s only signed an armistice at the end of the Korean war and to this day have never signed a peace treaty. The north, a nuclear power in it’s own right and allied with China, one of the world’s largest military forces, against the south allied with the USA. The North are very anti-American and have previously threatened all out nuclear war with America. Hence one tiny mistake by one soldier in this area, the last front-line of the cold war, could lead to a truly global nuclear war.

The only nuclear powers (countries with nuclear technology) when the cold war was more active were the USA and Russia. However now there are several countries around the world with this most destructive power, thus I would say that we are actually closer now with the reliance of technology, to a nuclear war, than we were in the 1960s. This is because, there are many more computer systems controlling the weapons and we all know that computers can fail. In theory, one short circuit in an obscure wire in an obscure office in the middle of Siberia, could cause a computer to misread one command and launch the missiles.]

Then there is the argument that this is all part of the first world war. You have probably all just read that and said what the hell, the first world war was ages ago, surely Looble means the second world war. hose people are wrong, I do mean the first world war, and here is why.: see the second world war was caused by the treaty of Versailles being too harsh and causing Germany to go into a huge economic inflation period. But the treaty of Versailles was only created by the League of Nations (forerunner to the UN) after the first world war. The cold war was caused by the disagreements in the aftermath of the second world war. Hence why we are still (technically) in world war 1 and this was all started by the shooting of the Archduke of Austria-Hungary in 1914. If that gun had jammed, then we would all be living in a very different world. Communism would probably not have been particularly successful in Russia due to the lack of hard times and the global means of travel would probably be by balloon or ship since many innovations such as flight were developed as a result of the wars.

In my talks with my friend Uvfopssls (name altered for anonymity), we were discussing this issue and we decided that, if a war were to happen, it would probably destroy most of man-kind with the most casualties being in the upper hemisphere yet the fallout would be global. The EMP blasts alone would destroy most of human technology with the blast of one nuke over the channel enough to take out the electrical systems in all of Britain and at least the North off France.

I will leave today with a quote

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. Einstein
