Topic: The world at war?
April 19, 2019 / By Tabatha Question:
I need to do an Essay on future wars.
Here's what I think.
Global Super powers are hungry for power. Russia however, is the new global Superpower, and declares war on NATO except the United States. The US however, does not do anything to help out n the war of Europe except give out Oil, supplies, arms, and some soldiers and pilots. The war has been going on since 2016 perhaps? However, Russia launches a massive surprise attack on the US east coast in 2020 almost capturing it. However, US forces hold out against them. In the aftermath, the US joins the war. However, many Country's like Japan are having civil wars for X reason. The US helps the countries loyal to them. Five years in the war, countries like the UK, Germany, Italy, Greece, France, Canada, Japan, Kazakhstan, South Africa, Somalia, Poland, Norway, The United States, and Russia have been left torn apart by war. The US eventually wins the 8 year war, and an age of peace arrives. However, China realizes it has an opportunity at Global domination, and picks up where the Russians left off. This war lasts another five years, with the US and China both losing. China's economy collapses, while America's military is reduced. Most of the WW3 veterans are killed, leaving kids around 16 to join the military. In the end, peace is celebrated for another fifty years.
What do you guys think?

Sounds like you are making a story not an essay. I aint writin no book for ya. I feel that WWIII will be the second American Civil war. The people against the Government. Most if not all the fighting would take place in the USA and its surrounding areas. Its not as far fetched as you might think.
America would never ditch their European allies who are their shield against Russia's nuclear weapons, as alone, they wouldn't stand a chance against Superpower Russia. They would join the war the moment one of their allies were attacked, which would probably be Norway, a strategically important country with oil reserves and a shared border with Russia.
Norway's defense strategy:
Since Norway joined NATO their anti-Russia strategy has been to delay them until the Americans arrive in numbers. Norway's Army Philosophy is to only have 5-6000 troops in active duty at any given time in order to save money. The need two months to get the full force mobilized, so their plan of action is as follows:
All bridges and roads at the border of Russia and Norway are rigged with explosives in order to keep Russian tanks from crossing until they have built themselves a new one. The majority of the Norwegian Army will be stationed near the border and slowly withdraw south through the mountains, launching ambushes and other delaying tactics. They will have tracked vehicles that will drop troops (they are all trained in Arctic warfare) on skis behind enemy lines to slow their advance and cut their supply lines.
The Russians would have to traverse the country lengthwise, and their advance would be easy to anticipate, as they would have to move from valley to valley. A week or two after the invasion, US Army troops would arrive and help fortify Middle Norway against the Russians who would be halted and then pushed back as the Norwegian Army's numbers swelled. Oslo would be defended by the elite Royal Guard. (They have such a harsh training regime that upon entering they have to sign a contract that removes their Basic Human Rights for the duration of their training. Their only problem is that they are not allowed by Norwegian Law to operate outside the capital.)
Well Russia has no power and if it would attack Western Europe they would lose in a few months cause of economy dependence on Europe (I don't count nukes because this would be the end of humanity), for the next 10-20years no one in the world can face US military power so the only country that would probably start a war against another big power would be USA itself in order to maintain their current status of the only superpower of the world
China and Russia and Iran are the three bad guys. first they take over asia, then africa. then the US gets involved. Europe would not fight, they would just sit there and the US would have to kick everyone's ***.
logistics: russia would attack through canada, they could get there through sarah palin's backyard (your teacher will love that comment). Iran dominates africa through the muslim brotherhood regimes installed into the Arab Spring countries. China handles india, pakistan, all of south east asia and japan.
the great battles are:
the naval battle in the pacific (US and Australia fight the Chinese back to maylasia).
the batlle of south africa: US Forces team up with england and the south african to keep the iranian forces stuck around the congo. the terrain gets kind of inhospitable there.
the batlle of yukon: russian forces get completely decimated by US and Canadian ground forces. pushed back to the arctic circle where they starve and die.
Originally Answered: Need help in history ( World war II/ War World I)?
The Spanish Civil War began on July 17, 1936, in Spanish Morocco, when a group of army officers staged a pronunciamiento, a military coup, against the government of the Second Spanish Republic, which had been in existence for only five years. The uprising quickly spread to Spain itself. The Nationalists, as the army rebels came to be known, had the support of a large proportion of the military, the Catholic hierarchy in Spain, and the land-owning aristocracy, all of whom were angry over various progressive reforms of the Republican government. The attempted coup failed, however, and the country fell into a civil war that lasted more than two and a half years and remains the bloodiest conflict Spain has ever known.
There could be multiple responses to the question of the causes of the Spanish Civil War. One set of responses would look at what motivated the military to initiate their coup - and here the answers would be about the eroding of traditional authority, of the role of the church and the army, the loss of power and money by the aristocracy and the wealthy, etc. Another set of answers would go further back, and look at the rise of the Spanish Republic, how it came to be, the internal stresses between in the government and within the pro-Republic elements of Spanish society, particularly around the aspirations and increasing power of more radical forces (including communists, socialists and anarchists) allied with the Republic.
But to step much, much further back and attempt to address all your questions... We should exclude the question about Japan from this set, as the other three are all strongly related. They all involve the rise of fascism in Europe in the 1930s, and in all three cases there are similar causes and issues involved. The most important of these would be:
- the failure of the peace settlement after World War I
- the global economic crisis of the 1930s
- the impact of modernism and modernity
- the erosion of traditional authority and structures of power, and a backlash against this
Japan's decision to join the Axis was a purely pragmatic one, along the lines of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." Japan had been engaged in invasions and expansionist empire building in the Far East for some time before the bombing of Pearl Harbor brought it into direct conflict with the US and so into WWII.
