As of April 2019, world peace remains at an all-time critical juncture, Cultural and political clashes became more profound. terrorist attacks in Europe, the US, and elsewhere have increased. Russia is spreading its influence at an alarming rate while NATO is weakening with a visible paradigm shift among its members. The rise of Chinese influence and the unremitting mistrust between Iran and the US, after the latter walked out of the nuclear deal negotiated during the Obama administration, increased the destabilization of the Middle East. Military clashes between the nuclear nations of India and Pakistan is reaching an alarming level. Other crisis currently brewing such as in Venezuela that can lead to a nuclear threat similar to the Cuban missile crisis. A miscalculation leading to a nuclear trigger or the use of other Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) is becoming worrisome and unavoidably irritating. A world conflict among superpowers that can be caused by misguided actions, wrong spoken words, or injudicious conveyed messages has become an unavoidable reality.
Russia, with its overwhelming power can vigorously rattle world peace at any time. Putin is openly getting more aggressive with the largest deployment since WW2 of Russian forces outside his country into Syria including the advanced SS 400 air defense system.
A world conflict among superpowers that can be caused by misguided actions, wrong spoken words, or injudicious conveyed messages has become an unavoidable reality. The complexities and the abundance of lexicons among nations seeking or possessing nuclear technologies and weapons are obvious. For example, the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, NPT, signed in 1968 currently has some 189 member nations. The NPT is left to be culturally interpreted by almost 200 different unique alphabets lexicons. Translations and interpretations are often insufficient to pair and connect minds where cultural or scientific terms often offer differing meanings even in one culture compounding the complexities within an envelope of some 200 cultures. Thus, the problem multiplies when two or more languages are required to pair minds. Diplomats, scientists, and world leaders often face challenges to bypass a geopolitical barrier of national beliefs and ideologies to lay transparency on the table for the sake of international peace and security.
Washington DC goals are not the goals of Russia, Pakistan, India, Korea, Israel or Iran. How critical such an obstacle can be? A recent example to amplify the importance of this obstacle took place among two super powers, the USA and Russia who believe they understood each other. With all of the United States' resources to assure understanding and avoid mistakes with other important nations such as Russia, with whom the US had close working relationships and negotiations of treaties for many decades, the former US secretary of state and the Russian foreign minister recently showed the world how easy it is to misinterpret the essence of a highly visible and critical meeting. Both of these two individuals are highly skilled and accomplished in foreign affairs and negotiation. Yet, they did not have proper, accurate resources to represent their views, causing an embarrassment for the whole world to see on live media coverage. The use of a wrong word rendered a critical message ineffective and could have had far more disastrous consequences had one of these diplomats not realized and corrected the situation even in a humorous way.
Other currently brewing such as in Venezuela that can lead to a nuclear threat similar to the Cuban missile crisis crises are. Others, such as the simmering conflict between India and Pakistan, two nuclear nations, can engulf the region and maybe the world. Dangerous events in 2019 are moving at a digital speed and the players are no longer the US and Russia, but rather Iran, India, Pakistan, the UK, China, Ukraine, Israel, South and North Korea. How do we communicate to avoid misunderstandings and false reactions is paramount to defuse actionable triggers threatening world peace? History is a witness. Nations have failed time and time again to avoid such an abyss. Can humanity afford these mistakes? NPWMD strives to be a safe bridge to pair minds and enhance the communication process. It helps assure zero tolerance against igniting an unintended war with colossal consequences leading to the extinction of humanity
