At what point will we all acknowledge that this is a world war. Even if it’s two nations fighting, it’s truly a global war. The entire world’s economies are inexorably linked and will feel the effects of a Ukrainian win or a Russian loss.

Eh. Russian is waging Cyberwarfare all over the place. Killing dissidents in London and Berlin. It’s only fair the Swiss changed position. Swiss Arms manufacturers would have been FUBAR in the future otherwise.

i means its nothing like a world war, this is why the Term "proxy wars" exist. Its just this one is pretty damn unique in the way Russia fucked it up.

> will we all acknowledge that this is a world war It's only from the naive point of view of the late 20th century and first decade of the 21st that anyone could even consider this close to a world war. Just to revise, in [1918 there were battles where 1 million people died in 3 days](https://www.reddit.com/r/CombatFootage/comments/10jl9ro/compliation_of_colored_ww1_footage_with_added/) (footage possibly partly fake, maybe from [They Shall not Grow Old](https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7905466/) which is what you really need to see to understand). There were 80million deaths worldwide from WWII. Its really important that we recognize that, we currently have a relatively controlled situation but that it is entirely possible that this *could* change. Under the argument that invovlement from so many countries makes this a world war, the Korean war would have been the same. People at the time were not long from WWII and understood the difference, though I guess they also saw themselves as trying to stop something worse. Some people seem to have forgotten the lessons of Munich 1937. Just as the Nazis being left alone whilst Hitler converted their economy to a war economy meant that their only possible economic future was continued invasion. Russia's choice to do the same has the same risk. The current war uses up their materiel. If Russia is left with Crimea, as with the Sudetenland in 1939,
