The Threat of World War III is Growing

Britain has revealed that it will send depleted uranium munitions to Ukraine. 

Depleted uranium is a byproduct of the process of enriching uranium, a radioactive material. 

DU ammunition also contains radioactive materials. It was used in the Gulf War, and it caused problems. 

DU ammunition is hard and heavy, making it highly powerful enough to penetrate and destroy enemy tanks. 

However, radioactive dust is generated at the time of impact and disperses into the surrounding area, posing a health hazard not only to the soldiers, but also to the residents. 

In fact, in Iraq, there have been many reported cases of children being born with birth defects believed to be caused by DU ammunitions. 

DU ammunition is a type of nuclear weapon. 

DU ammunitions are so-called “dirty bomb” that spread radioactive materials, so providing them to Ukraine would mean that it would use nuclear weapons against Russia. 

That would cause Russia to retaliate with nuclear weapons. 

Britain and the U.S. are deliberately trying to push Russia to use nuclear weapons. 

In addition, U.S. troops are stationed in Syria, and there has been a conflict between them and Iran. 

If this continues, it could lead to a war between the U.S. military and Iran. 

The risk of war is intensifying around the world, and if this trend continues, it could lead to World War III. 

Japanese Prime Minister Kishida thoughtlessly visited Ukraine and gave President Zelensky “hissho shamoji” as a gift. But Japan will also be involved in a world war if it continues to back Ukraine up. 

I became more and more acutely aware that most people are unable to sense the current world crisis. 

If they knew how much humanity is at stake, they would be more serious about finding a way to reconcile these nations. 

I think the time has come for us to understand the situation with a greater sense of urgency.
