Some people are speculating whether a World War III is imminent. There are many reasons why this is pure speculation, even though rhetoric is sharpening between superpowers. We should be able to settle scores without the use of weapons, but some people are bent on creating divisions rather than building bridges.
One important aspect in creating global peace is the realization that real peace isn't only the mere absence of war. That is just a temporary truce. Real peace requires cooperation, and I think all superpowers realize that there would be no winners in any global war - especially not if any nuclear weapons were ever put into play.
Lines are sharpening, and that rhetoric could be dangerous, especially if powers that ARE bent on world domination were to get nuclear capabilities.
We must focus on building bridges, and I am quite sure world leaders know they should focus on solving problems rather than creating them. Even at a time when America is showing muscles, there is only one real hope, and that is that their President is only in power for ONE four-year term. He can insult dozens of people in mere minutes.
What has taken years to build in terms of diplomatic relations is being broken every single day by tweets that lack quite a bit in solid politics, and I think most people can see that. At least I hope they can.
