THE LOOMING WORLD WAR 3
The world order shaped by the victors of World War || has entered an unstable phase with the collapse of the USSR, the advent of globalisation, the advances in informatics and particularly with the erosion of monopoly over information.
The use of terrorist groups in the competition and struggle for dominance among countries was also observed during Cold War but what we have seen in recent years, however, is the institutionalisation of that dirty tactic through proxy wars. Terrorist groups find deal breeding grounds in afflicted and unstable regions.
In these areas where people live a miserable life in precarious conditions, sectarian, ethnic or class-based problems either turn into actual conflict or pave the way for the emergence of lethal terrorist groups. Relative stability in some countries has been made possible through repression by an oppressive regime , as in Syria under Bashar al-Assad in the recent past. But the Arab Springs seems to have brought even that "relative" stability to an end.
In short, countries with a fragile democracy or economy have either slid into civil war or are about to meet the same fate at any moment. Apparently, most of the countries in these regions are former colonies. So Western nations are under a definite obligation to behave responsibly for enabling democracy and stability in these countries.
However, that duty is not being performed. As if that is not bad enough in itself, there is an obvious effort to designate "good" and "bad" terrorist organisations and legitimate the "good" ones.
