Russia WW3?

by Dr Marek Laskiewicz

Synopsis - As warned since 1990, World War 3 is still possible, indeed probable; it may terminate the world. A crisis, probably Ukrainian, will bring about a Russian neocommunist dictator, who will wage this war. This crisis will occur because of systemic and Russian national reasons; its unexpectedness and the unbalanced West will promote the crisis; it will grow because of WMD [Weapons of Mass Detruction] and other crisis multipliers. It has several particular routes, notably Russian failure, and many variants; any may lead to world termination. Nonetheless the theory is indeterministic; there are other futures: there need be no World War 3.
The chapter headings are listed below to present the book structure clearly, which mirrors its thesis, namely that a world war is still possible brought about by a theoretically likely crisis whereupon a dictator will arise with a consequent world war, which may terminate the world, though we can avoid this future. 2 The World War 3 Problem 3 The Crisis Route 4 Systemic Crisis Causer: Communistish Russia is Metastable 5 Nationalistic Crisis Causer: Challenger Russia 6 Antagonistic Crisis Promoter: Unbalanced West, Notably USA 7 Situational Crisis Promoter: World War 3 is Unexpected 8 Crisis Multipliers 9 The Key Crisis 10 Further Crisis Analyses 11 Neocommunist Dictator 12 Neocommunist Russia 13 World War 3 14 Possible Futures 15 World Crisis Management There are also three summary tables. This academic book is about the possibility that World War 3 may break out soon. It presents a thesis that there is a non-negligible probability of any crisis with Russia spiralling into a military confrontation that might turn into a world war involving weapons of mass destruction that could result in world termination. It is based on the author's theory, politysm, that he has developed over the past 25 years, hence he has been warning publicly about this probable future since 1990, notably that Russia is like Weimar Germany . So the world is not yet free of the nuclear holocaust eventuality, and worryingly the author predicted in his 1993 book Russia and World War III, that the most likely fatal crisis site would be - Ukraine.
