The Next Phase of Collapse: Wars initiated by Israel/US for Hegemony Over World’s Resources
Wars by Israel/US for hegemony over resources are about the survival of the fattest. They are fought by the urge to secure more of other peoples’ resources: More water, more food, more fertile land and more energy to maintain unsustainable lifestyles.
In the most likely scenario, as the first phase of world’s cities begin to collapse, an all-out global war would break out started by Israel and the United States that would be fought with nuclear, exotic, biological and conventional weapons.
Why would a global war break out?
- The self-fulfilling prophecy for Israel [through US] to rule the world
- World’s resources are dwindling (competition for the remaining finite resources is rapidly intensifying).
- The exponential growth economy and its two leading pathogens, overproduction and overconsumption, together with unsustainable lifestyles and unethical behavior are degrading the world’s remaining resources.
- Climate change is affecting the availability, or access to resources.
- Global rates of consumption of water, food and energy are exponentially increasing.
- The consumption rate has long surpassed the sustainability rate.
- The world topsoil is falling below the critical level at which point production declines sharply.
- Two-thirds of ecosystems are collapsing.
- Deteriorating local resources and food insecurity, economic uncertainty and poverty, political corruption and instability, among other mechanisms of collapse, result in the collapse of cities and population centers.
- Cities, population centers and settlements are abandoned.
- Large-scale migrations ensue at regional, national and international levels.
- Large numbers of migrants put additional terminal strain on the remaining resources.
- Nations outstrip nature’s carrying capacity.
- Civil conflict and war break out.
Types of Resource Wars
- Regional Conflict
- Civil War
- Border (interstate) War
- Global [nuclear] War

The Most Likely Strategies
- Form objective-driven alliances. [The traditional military alignments would no longer apply, as survival alone would dictate offensive and defensive strategies.]
- Depopulate primary targets to minimize resistance.
- Launch preemptive strikes employing overwhelming force (first strike) against the opponents (rivals nations competing for the same resources).
- Attack both military (counterforce) targets, to weaken enemy retaliation, and civilian (countervalue) targets to maximize strike [kill] value.

Primary targets are selected according to the
- Availability of resources: Water, wild food, land (agricultural and forest), Energy (Fossil fuels and other available resources.)
- Content value: Amount of the available resources
- Vulnerability metrics: The ease by which the target can be depopulated and re-occupied.

‘Hotspots’ are considered to be the countries, regions or areas that are worst affected by water scarcity, food or energy shortages, degraded land, and the corresponding political instability created as a result of those conditions, as well as those areas that are considered to be primary or secondary targets because of their relative abundance of natural resources.
Our data analysis show that within a short time global list of countries facing a high risk of political instability and danger of armed conflict resulting from dwindling resources, which would be exacerbated by the adverse effects of climate change, would grow rapidly leaving very few places, if any, temporarily unaffected.
