The Intercept: The world is already in the midst of World War III

The American news website The Intercept published an analysis of the significance of the attack the day before yesterday, Friday, which targeted an air defense radar site near the city of Isfahan in central Iran, which American officials said was carried out by Israel.


The site stated - in a report by two of its investigative journalists - that the attack was met with relief from the media and the government in the United States because it somehow avoided igniting a large-scale war.


However, the American website believes that what happened, in reality, appears similar to the wars of these days, which are sometimes characterized by the launching of 300 missiles and drones, and at other times the attack is weak, specific in purpose, and shrouded in secrecy. “The days of massive invading armies and traditional confrontations between two forces are over.” Two military personnel.


The website added that as long as experts, the government, and the American media are only concerned with wars of an outdated nature, they will not see the war breaking out before our eyes, according to the news analysis, the authors of which claim that the infection of this misconception has infected the government in Washington.


While the media and the world are anticipating the outbreak of a large-scale war between Iran and Israel - according to the Intercept report - and are even concerned that the confrontation between them will result in nuclear escalation, what these circles overlook is that we are already in the midst of a third world war.


The Third World War is not similar to the wars that broke out nearly a century ago, in terms of the number of huge armies and the desire of empires to invade continents. Rather, it is a war that is taking place everywhere on our planet, raging in armed conflicts and awash with weapons.


The report reviewed the battles currently taking place in some regions of the world. In the Middle East, the United States, Turkey, Iraq, and even Iran have found themselves footholds in Syria, where the civil war continues unabated and is barely noticed, as people search elsewhere for battles similar to World War II.


10 countries are participating in launching air strikes on targets of the Houthi group in Yemen to prevent them from striking commercial ships in the open Red Sea. However, World War III is based on keeping things secret, according to the Intercept report.


While Israel's war on the Gaza Strip, and its conflict with Iran, is at the forefront of the news at the present time, there is also a trench war in Ukraine that has been going on for more than two years, with all eyes awaiting a decisive victory or a terrible defeat.


But the American news site believes that what most distinguishes World War III are the attacks that Ukraine or its agents have regularly directed against targets inside Russia and the incursions into the Russian regions of Belgorod and Kursk.


However, the truth - as the report puts it - is that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is actually involved in a Third World War against Russia. Meanwhile, the United States has its forces deployed in countries ranging from Norway to Bulgaria, and over the past two years has built a major new base in Poland.


Total war - or rather World War III - paints a confusing picture and captures the world's attention, leaving no room for one to imagine the possibility of doing something about it.


Iran and North Korea also continued to support the Russian war effort with drones, missiles, and artillery shells.


According to the report, although the “blatant” Russian invasion appears to be an embodiment of the old concept of occupying armies and World War II, the reality is that Ukraine never turned into “the largest tank battle” ever, as some expected, nor did it “escalate.” It became a nuclear war, and it was not even decisive.


On the Korean Peninsula, North Korea continues to conduct nuclear tests and unannounced ballistic missile launches into the ocean, raising tension.


In another part of the Asian continent, fighting is taking place between India and Pakistan in their conflict over their common borders, and India is clashing with China in a blazing confrontation that may lead to World War III.


In Africa, armies, “terrorist” groups, militants, mercenaries, militias, bandits, pirates and separatists are active in Angola, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Mali, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Sudan and Sudan. China and Russia compete for rules and influence.

Also in Africa, America, France and Britain are engaged in an extensive but covert fight, supposedly against Islamic “terrorists”, while fires are burning across the continent, and none of them can claim any long-term victories on the dual fronts of combating “terrorism” and keeping peace. , as the Intercept report put it.


The bottom line, as the American website sees it, is that total war - or rather World War III - paints a confusing picture and captures the world's attention, leaving no room for one to imagine the possibility of doing something about it.
