While we’re waiting for the fun to kick off (my bet, South China Sea incident) with World War 3, the real one, in the meantime we can possibly rely on Sam Raimi’s upcoming ‘World War 3’ in film format.
The film will be based on George Friedman’s book ‘The Next 100 Years’, described as;
A fascinating, eye-opening and often shocking look at what lies ahead for the U.S. and the world from one of our most incisive futurists.
In his thought-provoking new book, George Friedman, founder of STRATFOR—the preeminent private intelligence and forecasting firm—focuses on what he knows best, the future. Positing that civilization is at the dawn of a new era, he offers a lucid, highly readable forecast of the changes we can expect around the world during the twenty-first century all based on his own thorough analysis and research. For example, The U.S.-Jihadist war will be replaced by a new cold war with Russia; China’s role as a world power will diminish; Mexico will become an important force on the geopolitical stage; and new technologies and cultural trends will radically alter the way we live (and fight wars). Riveting reading from first to last, The Next 100 Years is a fascinating exploration of what the future holds for all of us.
For those looking for a book like this, I’d recommend Tom Clancy’s ‘Red Storm Rising’, a story of WW3 between NATO and the USSR in the 1980s.
