same reasons they started WWI and WWII


You would do well to understand that lack of the economic integration (which I mentioned above) is what set both WW1 and WW2 in motion. After the two wars, countries in Europe and North America have pursued economy as vehicle for peace.

Certainly these countries were was trapped in geopolitical rivaly with Soviet Union for a long time, which also has a lot to do with these rivals not being economically integrated together.

Meanwhile former enemy Japan was integrated to same economy, as was South Korea, and you can observe how it worked for those countries.

Your argument that the "financiers" would have started the previous world wars is quite off.

WW1 was put in motion by assassination of Franz Ferdinand, who was heir to the wealthy dynasty that ruled Austria-Hungary. Ethnic tensions contributed to that murder more than any financial interests, and Hitler's campaign was driven by nothing but illusions of racial superiority.

If anything, it was the economic interests of the financiers, neutral to questions of ethnicity or race that created the two world wars, that brought peace to western Europe.

It took a good while to have rest of the world, China included, to share this economic integration. But it was done, and should only be taken further for continued peace.

Financiers didn't start or stop world wars, but they have prevented new ones. Much more effectively than you would prevent anything by pointing your nukes at them.

  I don't know much about it but, if there's such thing as  WWIII, I certainly will like to see the liberation of territories and indigenous natives from centuries long Colonization.

It should be noted, that anywhere where colonization (by whatever name you call it) has occurred, the indigenous natives are overly represented in the poorest and generally worst off part of the population.

Of course, that's probably why you suggest that they should be liberated in the first place.

However, when a war breaks, people in this segment usually suffer the most, and that's regardless of who wins the war.

Even if the result of the war would lead to their liberation, common scenario after every such liberation is a civil war to determine which sub-group of the newly liberated gets to rule everyone else.

But I still agree on the principle of importance of liberation.

returning the lands to the natives


Yes, I believe that's exactly what "horatiokim" was referring to, and with which I concur (however acknowledging the cost of that return).  Liberating the natives to rule their own land.

And that applies, whether the natives in question would be American, African, Tibetan, or Taiwanese.
