Google searches for the term “World War 3” have hit the highest ever level as a result of the Trump administration’s escalation in Syria and North Korea.
Google Trends illustrates how the number of searches for the term in recent days dwarfs the last peak in November 2015.
Related search queries include “Syria war,” “Trump world war 3” and “Syria world war 3,” which is also attracting the highest search interest ever recorded.
The term “going to war” also spiked to its highest ever level, easily beating the last time it soared right before the Obama administration was mulling a military attack on Syria in August-September 2013.
As we reported yesterday, citizens in South Korea have flooded the country’s number one messaging platform with concerns about a nuclear conflict, prompting the government to publicly reassure them.
Although President Trump has now indicated that the administration is not planning a boots on the ground invasion of Syria, the USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group is steaming toward the western Pacific Ocean in a massive show of force.
Yesterday, China also indicated that it may strike North Korea’s nuclear facilities if the Stalinist state continued its military belligerence.
The Sun also reports today that Seal Team Six, the crack team that took out Osama Bin Laden, is training in South Korea to assassinate Kim Jong-un. U.S. officials denied the report.
