Mankind's Propensity to War Does Not Bode Well to Sustain Periods of Peace - World War Three Pending with No Victory in Sight

Reader comment on item: Victory – An Obsolete Concept?

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Sep 12, 2022 at 18:58

The end of World War Two dd not end with any promise that peace would break out and nations of the world would be at ease with each other: with the underlying angst of Stalinistic tendencies found world-wide, peace would neve have a chance. The Cold War proved that.
The fall of the Soviet Union was not a victory of democratic political wills, but was merely a diversionsary circumstance that whoever controlled the money would be able to control politics; only as long as the money held out.
With the current situation of the value of currency in question (remember the great depression was not forgotten until December 7th), the next outbreak cannot be all that far along. Then, with no more true value of the remaining gold in whose possession to be determined, it is only a matter of time before that battle starts.
The next currency will be weighed in ounces of nuclear materials necessary to make the atomic argument worth more than all the money spent trying to stop the next war. Where's the victory in that?
