WW3 happening is “almost guaranteed” and will be “extremely fast and lethal.” This is according to top US officials who believe that a full-scale war between nations will likely happen in the future.
Major General William Hix warned that this world war will be unlike the previous two in many ways. One of these will be the widespread use of artificial intelligence to speed up the war.
According to Express, the General’s cryptic warning comes as Russia and China are currently assembling conventional forces. North Korea is also carrying out more nuclear and missile tests, in steadfast defiance to US and UN sanctions.
Hix spoke to an army panel in Washington saying that WW3 happening in the near future would be extremely fast and lethal. According to him, the speed of the conflict will likely strain our human abilities.
WW3 Happeninng “Almost Guaranteed”
“The speed at which machines can make decisions in the far future is likely to challenge our ability to cope, demanding a new relationship between man and machine,” Hix said.
General Hix referenced the technological advancements China and Russia had made in recent years. He warned that such developments should force the White House to “prepare for violence on a scale not seen since Korea.”
Lieutenant General Joseph Anderson said the US faces threats from “modern nation-states acting aggressively in militarized competition”. General Anderson is the top army chief and is a speaker at the same event.
The dangers posed to the US by a highly militarized China and Russia is no laughing matter. Should the two countries join forces, their military could easily go toe to toe with the US military, let alone their nuclear arsenal.
According to the Los A ngeles Times, the People’s Liberation Army is currently the largest standing army in the world. With 2.3 million troops, depicted in the film Red Dawn could very well become reality.
China has also upped military spending by 10 percent every year since 2010 and is currently saber rattling with its neighbors. With the current military only a shadow of its former self, could the United States prevent its homeland from an invasion?
