The idea of major powers working together to prevent conflict in the modern era has been around since the Concert of Europe in The First World War brought unprecedented devastation, leading to a renewed commitment to cooperation in the establishment, for example, of the League of Nations, and the Low Down & Dirty - MoTension - If You Make It Outta Ensley of the Geneva Conventions.
Anna Pivovarchuk: What have we learned from the Great War? Yana Korobko: From tragic combat experience, humanity has learned that war is a strong, evil force, and there is nothing that can stop it once and forever. Warfare has become more sophisticated, and nations have started investing more into military rather than war prevention.
Clearly, World War I did not meet expectations of the bloc that had instigated it; moreover, Germany did not want to tolerate those draconian conditions that Europe had put on it. How has it changed the balance of power in the world? Korobko: In politics, there is nothing perfectly good, nor perfectly evil. Instead, there are powers that, at a particular time in history, dominate all others — and then this order changes again.
Objectively speaking, World War II brought about a new order in international relations, which was a bipolar system. Pivovarchuk: Freedom - Jon Eberson Group - Jive Talking Cold War saw many localized insurgencies develop throughout the world — in places like Congo, Vietnam, Angola and later Afghanistan — driven by the forces of nationalism, independence and political ideology.
Korobko: Definitely! Modern wars have deep roots in the past. For example, frequent contradictions between Western and Muslim worlds already started during the time of the Ottoman Empire as a result of the fight for oil resources. The real vilification of Arabs was in WW III - Bastardizer - Enforcers Of Evil swing during European colonial times which, indeed, created negative stereotypes of Islam.
This served, and is still serving, as a pretext for invasion of Muslim lands. So, this cultural stereotyping and racism are the driving force of current conflicts we witness today. However, not Capital Punishment - Civil Defense - Propaganda vs.
Civil Defense local wars can grow into a global war. At the same time, no modern powers would consider starting a global war for Congo or Vietnam. What are the problems with this approach? What are the potential benefits and limitations of the international community being present in — and expected to regulate — global wars? Korobko: The responsibility to protect has got numerous advantages if evoked in accordance with Chapters VI and VIII of the United Nations charter and under the auspices of the UN to help protect populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.
For example, this very pretext was evoked by Russia during the annexation of Crimea earlier this year, Isänmaa Huumaa - Various - Nobody Wants Us Volume 2: Finland Part 2 in reality the Kremlin was governed by ambition of imperialistic expansion rather than protection of the Russian-speaking population.
If the latter was the case, Russia could have engendered international discussions on the topic a long time ago. But Moscow never brought up the issue at international summits, simply because the Russian-speaking population in Crimea enjoyed all rights and freedoms of any other ethnic minority in the region. Therefore, any legal norm shall be well elaborated, leaving no jurisdictive gap for malefactors to misuse it.
Pivovarchuk: What is the nature of global conflict of the future? Korobko: The nature of future conflicts lies mostly in cyber technological, informative and psychological dimensions. Offensive tactics have started to involve more psychological and psychotronic influences. The world might not even notice when it adapts to the new type of war, as this will happen very quickly, and mostly on an unconscious level. Is it a positive force, or does the future lie with regional actors taking on more eminent roles to solve problems that, to be fair, they understand better and are perhaps better suited to combat?
Korobko: Undoubtedly, the Western-centric world is decaying and a positive period of development in international history is almost over. This was purely a Western decision. Moreover, it had proved to be no longer competitive enough with new emerging superpowers such as ChinaBrazil etc, which could better respond to the WW III - Bastardizer - Enforcers Of Evil of its many nationalities without infringing upon their rights.
