September 2 marked the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, the deadliest military conflict in history. The war has claimed the lives of at least 70 million people around the world.
In an interview with Sky News, British Chief of Defense Staff General Sir Nick Carter warned that the global economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic could lead to new security threats which, in in turn, could trigger a new world war. .
He argued in Sunday’s interview that people around the world “live at a time when the world is a very uncertain and anxious place,” adding that he thinks “the real risk we have, with a lot of conflict regions that are going on right now, could you see an escalation leading to miscalculations and that’s something I think we have to beware of ”.
The general described an escalation as something that means more people and weapons “can be involved and before you can contain it, it leads the parties to a full-fledged war.”
Carter recalled that the escalation was in place before the two world wars of the last century and that it resulted in a “miscalculation that ultimately led to a war on a scale we hope to never see again.”
When asked if he meant that the threat of a third world war is real, the general stressed: “I say it is a risk and I think we need to be aware of those risks”.

“I mean, I guess we could have an army of 120,000 people, of which 30,000 could be robots. [in the 2030s], who knows? Carter said.
The interview comes months after the international community commemorated the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, the world’s bloodiest military conflict in which at least 70 million people, including around 40 million civilians, have perished.
Commemorative events took place amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has already damaged the global economy and forced a wave of developed countries in Europe to reintroduce national lockdowns against COVID-19.
