The 100th Episode: Is a Major War Coming?

by Dr. Francis J. Gavin

In this War on the Rocks Podcast, NSWG member Frank Gavin and others discuss the likelihood that there will be a major inter-state war in the next five years. Most of the discussants agree that the likelihood has increased compared to 10-15 years ago. Influencing factors include the growing spheres of influence of Iran and China, a rise of populism and nationalism in major liberal democracies, and massive technological revolutions. This podcast is moderated by NSWG member and WOTR Editor in Chief Ryan Evans.
