A hacktivist group called “Anonymous” released a video detailing world events that may have a huge impact on world relations. In the video is a masked and hooded figure with a digitized voice explaining tensions between countries emanating from the 2 most prominent, The US and North Korea. For those who have not yet seen the video just check out the link below:
The accuracy of the statements in the video is the most alarming thing. If Anonymous is to be believed then tensions are currently at an all time high. The video itself can raise tensions and heighten the possibility of conflict. When I look at the video, the first question that comes to mind is “What is the reason for posting it?” Was it to help ease tensions or provoke them? Was it released to prepare the world or was it done to incite violence? Anyone can make a video. If what they say is true and already well known then why the need to hide behind a false identity? In war, all sides believe they are right. Of course, all sides “can’t be right” at the same time. If an attack of any kind happens the chances of war escalate. I just hope that the leaders of nations examine any events carefully before rushing into retaliatory responses. There are people in this world who would love to see super powers engage in conflict. If they can conduct any type of action that another nation deems suspicious then they could possibly succeed in igniting war. Remember the Iraq war? Years ago we invaded Iraq because we were positive that they had “weapons of mass destruction.” In the end those weapons were never found. Many lives were lost over something we were not even sure of. While war may be a show of strength it is not always guaranteed to be a show of wisdom. There are no winners in war… Let’s hope and pray that instead of setting off wars this video will instead bring about a calmer demeanor and a stronger desire for peace. There is nothing wrong with trying a little diplomacy to resolve issues first. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
