With or without defence cuts, a war with Russia from a European viewpoint would be catastrophic, even in conventional terms. Britain is targeted
because of its importance as an intelligence-gathering relay station to the US, and of course, for its American airbases from which attacks upon
Russia would be launched. The US would be involved right from the off, as it would launch air strikes from other European bases as part of NATO, as
WW3 would begin conventionally, but would quickly escalate to nuclear use. Britain in a nuclear war would be utterly annihilated. In a conventional
war it could hold its own as its armed forces are extremely professional and very capable for their sizes, but they would eventually be over-whelmed
by Russia's larger military statistics.
Fact is, in conventional terms, the US cannot afford a Russian-dominated Europe both militarily or economically. During the 60's,70's, and 80's, it
was thought that Russia would overwhelm Europe through sheer military numbers, but I doubt this was really ever feasible. If Russia ever achieved
European domination, the US would be practically alone, and could only ever defend herself with the use of nuclear weapons. Let's be clear about
this, after Europe, America would most certainly be targeted and attacked, but expectations are that the US would be attacked at the same time as
Nuclear use policy is shifting from the 'mutual assured destruction' (MAD) protocol, to one of pre-emption. That is a shift towards potentially
attacking your enemy with nukes with swift 'thunder-clap' surprise, and disabling the enemy's capacity to counter as quickly and as destructively
as possible. Yes, you are bound to incur losses, but as long as those losses are kept to the barest minimum ('minimum' being in the millions) of
acceptable losses, then such cost may seem statistically viable. The goal will be to recover and rebuild faster than your enemy, and then overwhelm
her to total destruction. Britain would not survive the first attack. The 'old world' of Europe would be gone, but Russia, because of its size,
would most likely require being double-nuked.
Of course, all this does not factor in the Asiatic response. Even with Russia and Europe gone, a wounded America would then be facing countries like
China, Iran, North Korea, etc. America would still have allies in Australia, New Zealand, but I'm not too sure about Central and Southern American
countries? Potentially, America would eventually fall.
World War 3 will happen...it is absolutely inevitable. It's not about 'if', but 'when'. The world is being driven towards it by agendas and by
resource needs. The more the West facilitates sanctions against Russia, the more desperate that country will become, and it may reach a point where
Russia says 'enough is enough' and act proportionately to its desperation, its need, and its own agenda. It will not sit there like Iran or North
Korea while sanctions are heaped upon it. If it perceives itself as not being allowed to exist by its own determination, it will take the world down
