World War 3: Cyber Expert Says That ISIS Will Most Likely Win – Here’s Why!

According to cyber security expert and commentator John McAfee, World War 3 will be a cyber war, and agains the Islamic State, the United States is defenseless.

“No one can predict the future,” said McAfee, writing in the IB Times. “We can make educated guesses or, more prudently, explore the different possibilities and scenarios. And for a scenario of cyber war we are woefully unprepared — one could even say defenseless.”

McAfee also claims that the country’s “arsenal of bullets, bombs, tanks, planes, boats, missiles, and our nuclear capabilities” — while unmatched by ISIS and other terrorist organizations — will be no use in future conflicts.

“If we are unable to protect our networks, everything connected to them can be infiltrated by hackers,” he continued. “In our modern world this includes our power grid, nuclear power stations, planes, cars, and our entire financial infrastructure. These will be the weapons of cyber war — turned against us in a perversion of their intended purpose. We are living in a doomsday machine of our own design.”

McAfee has warned that the United States and the West are only prepared for traditional warfare, whereas the Islamic State is much more advanced and ready. Additionally, he also announced that he is launching a political party in an effort to tap into the worries of Americans about cyber security.

For McAfee, while the U.S. officials “fatuously debate whether or not to put soldiers on the ground in some Middle Easter nation or another, or how to best attack [ISIS] using our massive military machine,” the rules of future warfare are only due to change and transition in the decades to come, especially with how fast technology advances today.
