Why
has thus far no World War Three broken out? And what has been done to assure us
citizens, that there will be no major wars that threaten our security in the
future? Since 1945, the United Nations Security Council has played the most
essential role in the world of politics for maintaining peace between States
and holding security worldwide. And despite all the nuclear weapons that exist
today and the strength that they combine together; which could destroy this
entire planet. The main reason why countries do not go to war with each other
is, due to the fact that the damages which nuclear weapons could cause today
are too enormous for anyone to withstand; so countries know that if they want
to go to war with each other, it would most likely resort to a cold war instead,
as history has already showed us from 1947-91 between the United States and the
USSR. Due to such as events, the effectiveness of the United Nations has often
been questioned, and many argue that a lot more could have been done when we
look at what happened in the past in countries such as Rwanda, former
Yugoslavia and Somalia and also the responsiveness and aid that the UN has
brought, if any. The UN clearly has had some difficulties with remaining
neutral when operating, dealing with and trying to reach settlements within or
between countries. Today the only thing that could come between the United
Nations agreements amongst 193 countries, would be if an extremely unstable, in
this case both right-wing leaders such as North Koreas Kim Jong Un or Americas
Donald Trump would want to start a war with each other, but it is not likely
that this could actually happen. Many people still believe that terrorism has possibly
emerged from globalization and that it also poses an extensive threat to
international security. NGO’s such as Al Qaeda and Isis use violence to
intimidate humans and spread fear within counties, specifically targeting
innocent people that they consider enemies. In the following passages I will
discuss if it would be possible that a war breaks out soon, what
security-related organisations and establishments are doing to prevent this
from happening and what todays citizens fear most when it comes to war.

As Barkawi
mentions in ‘The Globalization of World
Politics’: ‘War is one of the oldest and most common form of international
relations.’ This implies that the possibility of war is a constant feature of
world politics, because conflict (and sometimes violence) is rooted in our
human nature and humans have used war since the beginning and across centuries to
bring about change regarding territory, resources, religion, independence and
any other political matter that comes to mind. All of this can be confirmed even
when we look at the history of how world peace as we know it today actually came
to be. The world as we know it today is safer than ever before, and this thanks
to the peace treaties emerging from: The First World War, which eventually
resulted in the formation of the League of Nations in 1920, and then The Second
World War which brought about the United Nations with its newly established
Security Council in 1945. The League of Nations was the predecessor, and
essential for the founding of the United Nations; The UN Charter got rid of all
the mistakes of the League, but the main idea and purpose remained the same;
such that they wanted to keep a similar structure and place it into a more
practical appliance for the prevention of war. Without these two major wars,
which resulted in an estimate of 80-100 million deaths combined and included
divisions within and across nations and brought about or led to malnutrition,
epidemics and mental disorders such as shellshock; there would not be world
peace as we know it today. We could argue that without these wars, the
agreements and settlements which needed to be done after the war, would otherwise
not have been done to such an extent that not another world war would break out,
which means that we would have to live in greater fear, because countries would
be more territorial or they would not have been satisfied with other treaty agreements
or violations. Even if there would be something similar to the UN, we would not
have the same set of rules as today and if even the League was not good enough,
which can be proven with the onset of World War 2. After the war it was
globally recognised that such terrible atrocities may never ever happen again, especially
when we take into account the immense power nuclear weapons of today have. It
would be possible to blow up the whole world, as they are extremely deadly and
their ranges of tearing apart areas have expanded. Reference for nuclear power
would be able to blow up
