‘World War 3’ has its roots during the advent of the Cold War in 1945.
The picture of clashing armies, which further escalated with the probability of then-rivals the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics’ use of nuclear weapons has been a subject of both concern and dread to those who lived during those times. The political scene was rife with proxy wars and saber-rattling, which brought a spell of doom and gloom to the average citizen.
With the dissolution of the U.S.S.R. in 1990, the fears of a new major conflict subsided until recently, where both old participants of previous wars and newcomers to the scene are flexing military muscles in ways the previous World Wars found impossible.
New battlegrounds are made in cyberspace, where the possibilities of another global conflict are presented from news articles to laymen’s speculations. Those trying their best to keep themselves sane and happy resorted to making light of the situation – in the form of these fun (albeit dark) World War 3 memes.
