Will 2023 be a year when extremely destructive conflicts erupt all over the world? We are certainly already living in a time of “wars and rumors of wars”, and tensions are approaching the boiling point in a number of key global flashpoints right now. If several more major conflicts were to suddenly begin next year, we could potentially witness an extended period of geopolitical instability that would be unlike anything that we have ever witnessed. It is easy to start wars, but it is much harder to end them. If you doubt this, just look at what is going on in Ukraine. There is no end in sight for that conflict, and there are several other wars that could literally erupt at any time. The following are 5 global flashpoints which could absolutely explode during the early stages of 2023…
Are you ready for another war in the Balkans? Ethnic tensions have risen to the highest level in more than two decades, and the president of Serbia just convened an emergency gathering of his national security council…
Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić has met his national security council as tensions rise in Kosovo between the authorities there and ethnic Serbs.
On Saturday a stun grenade was thrown at EU police in north Kosovo, where Serbs form a majority, and local police exchanged fire with unknown groups.
Ethnic Serbs set up road blocks after Kosovan police were deployed in a dispute over car number plates.
Some in the region now believe that war is “inevitable”, and Kosovo is already asking NATO to step in and intervene…
At a news conference in Kosovo’s capital Pristina on Sunday, Prime Minister Albin Kurti asked the Kosovo Force (KFOR), a NATO-led international peacekeeping force, to guarantee “freedom of movement,” as he accused “criminal gangs” of blocking roads.
A fragile peace has been preserved in Kosovo since it declared independence from Serbia in 2008 following the 1998-99 war in which NATO intervened to protect Kosovo’s Albanian majority. Serbia does not recognize Kosovo’s independence.
#2 The Disputed Border Between China And India
On Tuesday, we learned that there has been yet another violent clash along the hotly disputed border between China and India…
Soldiers from India and China clashed last week along their disputed border, India’s defense minister said Tuesday, in the latest violence along the contested frontier since June 2020, when troops from both countries were killed in a deadly brawl.
Rajnath Singh, who addressed lawmakers in parliament, said Friday’s encounter along the Tawang sector of eastern Arunachal Pradesh state started when Chinese troops “encroached into Indian territory” and “unilaterally tried to change the status quo” along the disputed border near Yangtze.
The Chinese just can’t seem to stop provoking India, and a full-blown conflict between the two nations could escalate out of control very rapidly.
Let us hope that does not happen, because both China and India possess nuclear weapons.

For a long time, we have been warned that China will eventually invade Taiwan.
Unfortunately, tensions in the region just continue to escalate, and on Tuesday the Chinese sent more bombers into Taiwan’s air defense zone than ever before…
China sent a record 18 nuclear-capable bombers into Taiwan’s air defence zone, Taipei said on Tuesday (Dec 13), just days after Beijing banned more Taiwanese imports in the latest sign of deteriorating ties.
Democratic Taiwan lives under the constant threat of invasion by China, which sees the self-ruled island as part of its territory to be seized one day.
There will be a war between Iran and Israel.
Of course the IDF has already been regularly hitting Iranian-backed forces inside Syria on a regular basis, but we should be thankful that a full-blown war in which missiles are flying back and forth between the two nations hasn’t started yet.
Unfortunately, we are closer than ever to that point. In fact, it is being reported that Israel is actually warning that it may bomb the airport in Beirut “if it determines that Iran is smuggling weapons on civilian planes”…
According to Israeli media reports, Israel has warned Lebanon that Israel Defense Forces could bomb Beirut’s airport if it determines that Iran is smuggling weapons on civilian planes destined for the terrorist group Hezbollah. The alleged weapons smuggling was reported by a London-based Arabic language newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat, which quoted Israeli sources who said Israel issued the warning.
When a full-blown war between Iran and Israel finally starts, there will be no holding back by either side.
The death and destruction such a war will cause will shock the entire world, and the global oil trade will be thrown into a state of complete and utter chaos.
The United States and Russia both continue to escalate the horrifying conflict in Ukraine.
Now that Russia is bombing the living daylights out of Ukraine’s power grid, the U.S. is choosing to respond by giving Patriot missiles systems to the Ukrainians…
Pentagon officials are in the final stages of preparing a plan to send a Patriot air defense missile system to Ukraine to counter Russian aerial assaults, U.S. officials told CBS News.
The plan has not yet been approved by either the Pentagon or the White House, but that could come as early as this week.
This represents a major escalation, and it is also being reported that the Biden administration has given the Ukrainian government the green light to conduct drone strikes deep inside of Russia.
Needless to say, the Russians are not pleased at all about having to deal with drone strikes deep inside their own territory. In fact, some prominent Russian voices are warning that the U.S. and Russia are getting dangerously close to the unthinkable. The following comes from a British news source…
Mad Vlad Putin’s henchmen have fired a warning shot that the Ukraine conflict could turn into a “full-scale nuclear war.”
They made the stark comments after the US gave the go-ahead for Kyiv to kick off drone strikes into Russia.
We don’t see such talk on U.S. television.
The Biden administration continues to assure all of us that the risk of nuclear war is extremely low, but the Russians see things very differently…
One source in Putin’s circle said: “This is playing with fire, risking full-scale war which could easily go nuclear.”
Another added: “Who will now give Moscow the green light for strikes against Ukrainian decision-making centres?”
Most people never imagined that World War I would get as bad as it did.
And most people never imagined that World War II would result in tens of millions of deaths.
Now we have entered the early stages of a third world war, and this time the major participants are armed with nuclear weapons.
If we don’t pull back from the brink, the consequences could potentially be far beyond what most people could even imagine right now.
So let us pray for peace, because a global war in which hundreds of millions of people die is not an acceptable option.

Hey Donnie Boy maybe you should take your rear end back to Ireland and STFU. We didn’t stupidly put a moron in the White House.

You need to understand just who the criminals are, and I can assure you it is not we Conservative Republicans. Biden’s weakness is giving everyone the Jitters thus they have their shaking fingers on that red button. You know, Just In Case !!!
This article is just plain old-fashioned fear mongering. The United States and her allies in Europe and the Pacific hold overwhelming economic and military superiority over Russia, Communist China, Serbia, and Iran. Overwhelming by any and every measure. This gives the United States and the “Rules Based International Order” the leverage and capabilities to resolve these various issues through diplomacy. There was a time when the United States and her allies in Europe sought to maintain stability throughout the world. To achieve this, various American Secretaries of State conducted “Shuttle Diplomacy” to resolve issues and reduce tensions. The United States and the European Union seem to have abandoned those kinds of policies.
I think you miss an important point. It is true that the US military and NATO have enormous qualitative and some quantitative advantage over Russia in land and sea and even air based forces. HOWEVER, it is also true that in nuclear weapons Russia has more and larger weapons although not as accurate weapons. Russia is fully capable of eliminating life from Europe and big sectors of the US. Ignoring this basic fact is just dumb.
The reality is that NATO assured Russia they would never expand eastward into the Eastern Bloc countries – but NATO repeatedly violated those agreements and pushed the borders of Nato hundreds of miles close to Moscow. The US Sec State basically threatened to have Ukraine join the EU and NATO – which would put NATO armies 2-3 days from Moscow. To the Russians, who have been invaded from the West four times in the last two centuries (Napoleon, WWI, western and Japanese armies alongside white Russians, WWII) and survived only by “defense in depth” meaning that the large distances required to attack Moscow led to supply line issues the doomed Western invaders – the idea of Ukraine in NATO is national suicide for Russia. In that situation, it is not irrational for Russia to escalate to whatever weapons are needed to prevent Ukraine joining NATO.
So far, the bravery and skill of the Ukrainian army together with advanced Western supplies has bled Russia white in terms of depleting their military. This is useful for NATO since it removes any real possibility of a Russian invasion of Europe. BUT it is done at the expense of putting nuclear-armed Russia up against the wall of national survival. Nobody wants nukes to be used but when the issue is one of national survival, it is foolish to think Russia would not resort to nukes and foolish to think that once that happens it will not lead to escalation. From a Russian point of view they would rather Ukraine become a nuclear smoking ruin than to have NATO armies 2-3 days from Moscow.
I think that this is the sort of situation that – if poorly managed – will lead potentially to very bad outcomes for Ukraine, Russia, and likely all of Eastern Europe and potentially all the NATO countries. So simplistic labeling it as fear mongering is not smart.
Are some governments forced to create crises to divert the attention of ‘ their ‘ people from the crises they have already created ?
