Elon Musk Says Most People 'Oblivious To The Danger' Of WW3 As UN Chief Fears Escalation In Ukraine War

Elon Musk once again reiterated his world war three warning on Tuesday. 

What Happened: Musk, while replying to a tweet about fears of a ‘wider war’ over Ukraine-Russia, said people aren’t aware of the dangers of a world war. 

"Most are oblivious to the danger," tweeted Musk. 

Musk's comments were prompted by a tweet from a user Luke Rudkowski who had shared a news article citing U.N. chief Antonio Guterres

Guterres on Monday warned that he fears the likelihood of a further escalation in the Russia-Ukraine war which means the world is heading towards a “wider war.”

“We have started 2023 staring down the barrel of a confluence of challenges unlike any in our lifetimes,” Guterres told diplomats at United Nations General Assembly while laying out his priorities for the year in a gloomy speech.

“I fear the world is not sleepwalking into a wider war. I fear it is doing so with its eyes wide open,” Guterres said.

Musk, in October, also had warned that the current scenario is the closest the world has come to since the Cuba missile crisis in 1962. However, he added then that the probability of World War III happening was "still very unlikely."
