The World At War

Gaza is in ruins, and the risk of a wider conflict with Iran increases by the day, dragging in the entire region. In Ukraine, Russia is winning and Europe could be at its mercy, while China has explicitly stated that the reintegration of Taiwan (read invasion) is a national objective. On one side is the American alliance, on the other a loose axis of China. Russia and Iran. What does this mean for us, what are the historical parallels and what can stop 2025 being the year of a Third World War?
