If there are any history-knowledgeable people out there, or those good at, and enjoy doing research, it might be interesting to know how many nations were involved in WW1 and WW2 and compare it to the current situation. If one adds up all the wars we know about and the secret wars, such as Iran-Saudi Arabian-USA proxy wars in Yemen as just one example, can we just get it over with and admit that WW3 is currently on and growing?
Israel just flew a number of sorties against military targets today in Syria/Lebanon perhaps, and explosions in Iranian facilities possibly by foreign entities etc. and Africa seems to be expanding as a jihadi theater of operations, I think it has to be close to WW2 in terms of nations participating, does it not? And lets not forget the former Soviet states in constant conflict such as Dagestan.
There are still 200,000 armed fighters in “revolutionary brigades” in Libya, a top UN envoy said Tuesday, expressing fears that Mali’s conflict could spillover into the country.
Foreign governments have raised concerns about security in Libya and UN envoy to the country Tarek Mitri said France’s military campaign in Mali had opponents in Libya.
“Opposition of armed radical groups to the military intervention in Mali may exacerbate the situation given ideological and/or ethnic affiliations as well as porous borders in Libya,” Mitri told the Security Council.
He said that border security was a “concern” because of unrest in Libya, particularly around the eastern city of Benghazi, and “the possible impact of recent developments in Mali.”
Mitri told reporters after the meeting there are up to 200,000 armed men in the revolutionary brigades that overthrew late dictator Moamer Kadhafi who are still not under government control.
