Elon Musk Just Revealed These Mysterious Things About Russia: Elon Musk has decided to speak up for an oppressed nation. Musk has had a great relationship with Russia in the past, but it seems he wants to do everything to help support Ukraine. The tech billionaire has warned Russia against attacking Ukraine, a former Soviet State.
Musk has warned that developed countries like Russia have the potential of causing a Third World War. In a tweet, the tech billionaire said, “China, Russia, soon all countries with strong computer science. Competition for AI superiority at the national level is most likely the cause of WW3, in my opinion.”
These words seem to be coming to pass as Russia is in a severe conflict with Ukraine. According to intelligence reports from the United Kingdom and the United States, Putin and his military generals are preparing for a full-scale war with Ukraine.
The conflict between Russia can be traced back to 1991 when Ukraine became independent after the collapse of the Soviet Union. In 2014, when Russia annexed Crimea, which was a part of Ukraine, the rivalry between the two nations deepened
Vladimir Putin’s government does not want Ukraine joining NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) as he sees it as a security threat to Russia. As things stand, the dispute between the European countries might escalate into a full-blown war.
Given the countries that are interested and have weighed on the issue, it is likely that World War 3 will occur, as predicted by Elon Musk. The United States President, Joe Biden, has warned Putin against attacking Ukraine.
Intelligence reports indicate that the US is deploying more troops amidst the Russian standoff. If this war happens, it would be costly because the US might fight both China and Russia. Elon’s prediction of China and Russia playing significant roles in World War 3, if it happens, doesn’t seem so far-fetched now.
It would be catastrophic if there happened to be a Third World War because countries can now use sophisticated weapons powered by artificial intelligence. Former Ukrainian prime minister, Mr. Volodymyr Groysman, tweeted in 2017 appreciating Elon Musk for accepting to help Ukraine overcome its power shortage issues through his SolarCity company.
The former minister’s tweet said, “[email protected] Thanks, @elonmusk. Interesting idea. Ukraine is eager to become a test site for innovation. Let’s talk it over in detail. Musk is willing to help Ukraine overcome its challenges with frequent blackouts.
These blackouts were caused by Russian hackers, who kept attacking Ukrainian power grids in most cases. On September 23, 2015, Ukraine faced one of the greatest cyberattacks on its power grid. More than 230,000 Ukrainians were unable to access electricity for about 6 hours.
Musk is giving Russia a warning since he has a solution for Ukraine’s power shortages. The SolarCity CEO is willing to set up reliable electricity in Ukraine. However, the installations will not come for free. So, Ukraine’s government must be willing to spend on the project.
Musk did not hesitate to give a quotation for the installation on Twitter. His tweet said, “Sure. Just check out my prior tweet on pricing ($250 kWh at pack level). Website will be updated soon, so there is complete transparency.”
With proper energy storage and a reliable electricity supply, Ukraine might better protect itself from Russia’s cyberattacks. Musk’s beef with Russia is no secret. He had a very frustrating experience with the Russians in 2001 and 2002.
The business magnate and tech guru had made three trips to Russia to purchase rockets for space exploration. Unfortunately, all his three trips were unsuccessful.
Every time Musk visited, the Russians hiked the price of the rockets. When it became clear that the Russian government had no plans of selling him those Rockets, Musk decided to start his space company, which we all know as SpaceX today. That company has grown to be the most successful private space exploration company in the world.
For this reason, Musk would not support Russia if they decided to attack Ukraine. This would be a perfect time for his revenge on the Russians. Musk would support the United States against the Russians in the Ukrainian conflict.
His support is an act of patriotism required of any citizen of the United States who truly loves their country. But he would also gain satisfaction from seeing Russia lose. Musk has to support the US since many of his companies’ assets are situated on American soil.
SpaceX, Tesla, The Boring Company, Neuralink, and OpenAI are all in the United States. All that aside, Musk has a high-security clearance in the United States. This means that he would have limited access to classified information.
He must maintain the US government’s trust in him by supporting them at war. President Joe Biden has already deployed troops close by to help the Ukrainians in case Russia attacks. Regardless of the misunderstanding between America’s richest man and the president, Musk would still be rooting for his country and its allies.
In moments of crisis, statesmen would put their differences aside to safeguard national interests. With Musk and Biden, the case will be no different. Sorry for anyone who thinks Musk will oppose Biden when the US gets involved in the Russia and Ukraine conflict because of the bad blood between them.
Both men strongly believe in the American dream and will unite against the enemy. Elon Musk’s businesses will be significantly affected if America gets involved in this conflict. The US economy will perform dismally, weakening the dollar in the global market.
This would be a considerable setback for Musk’s companies in the United States. A functional and robust economy will propel Musk’s businesses to grow. Currently, Musk is the richest man in the world, and he wouldn’t want to be dethroned by individuals like Bernard Arnault from France.
Musk is strongly warning Russia from attacking Ukraine because it is a move that would drag the United States, a formidable opponent, into the war. The United States will divert resources meant for other projects such as climate change into the war effort if Russia attacks.
This would mean that Musk’s effort to fight global warming will be crippled. Plus, if the bombings and shooting start, it can’t be good for the environment. Musk is a great environmental enthusiast. We can see from his products that he’s not one to support a move that will hinder the fight against climate change.
Musk knows that the war can be very deadly because countries that have made significant technological advancements will be involved. Musk believes that if artificial intelligence is integrated into War, we might have another Skynet on our hands like the Terminator movie, and we all get wiped out.
Musk says that the United States has more to fear from artificial intelligence than North Korea’s nuclear weapons. We have seen war for a long time, and a full-blown war fought with the latest technologies is hard to imagine. The fatalities that will stem from such a war will be colossal.
When we think of World War 2, we have more to fear. History taught us that the United States wanted to totally destroy Japan when they hit them with those atomic bombs. More than 80,000 died instantly in Hiroshima, while 40,000 people died in Nagasaki.
What can happen today is beyond our thoughts. What can they do today if the United States could cause such a disaster 75 years ago? Musk doesn’t want World War 3. It is not in anyone’s interest. He has called the United Nations to regulate artificial intelligence to avert a world crisis.
Before regulating AI, the UN has a task at hand to prevent World War 3. Secretary-General of the UN Mr. António Guterres needs to convene an emergency meeting to stop Russia from attacking Ukraine.
If the war happens, the United States, with the help of its allies and Ukraine, just might have the upper hand over Russia. The US has an unrivaled military force. It has many allies across the planet, which improves its chances of winning this war.
The US had strong diplomatic ties with many countries, granting it a large fighting force to overcome anything Putin could come up with. The military and technological advancements of the United States will give it an edge over Russia.
America is literally the home of every technology; it might decide to use its nuclear bombers with the most advanced stealth technology globally, making them invisible to most radars. Financial support is critical for any war; the United States has a more robust economy that will prove advantageous if the war gets drawn out.
The US has enough money that it can use in the war. We should forget that America is home to some of the richest men in the world. According to Bloomberg’s billionaire index, eight of the top ten richest men on this planet come from the United States.
Musk has made it clear that Russia risks great consequences if it attacks Ukraine, but if everyone breaks out their nuclear weapons, there might be no winners as the civilian casualties on both sides will be too great.
