I don't think its a case of humanity wanting a world war, rather a few pr*cks in governments and the corporate world that stand to profit from it. Historically speaking, and you can reference each major conflict over the centuries yourself, if you want to get out of a recession quickly, start a war. Recovery from the mini-depression of 2007-2009 has occurred on paper only. TPTB have been using Keynsian economic theory to break free from the doldrums (spend the way out of recession by endless borrowing) and it isn't working for what's left of the Middle Class that support the economy. To avert a collapse of the world economy, we get a war, plain and simple.edit on 26-1-2014 by Cynic because: (no reason given)
