The website The Intercept has obtained a video made by the US Army, and used in the Pentagon's Joint Special Operations University, to draw up future challenges.
- This is the future of the world, and it is inevitable, one can hear in the video.
The Pentagon states that the world is faced with a population explosion, which will take place mainly in urban areas in relatively poor countries.
They outline a future where criminal networks in practice operate unhindered by the authorities, where the infrastructure is so poor that disasters are the norm, where ethnic and religious tensions are driving unrest in entire regions, where poverty creates enormous ghettos and frenzied social unrest.
The Pentagon's vision for the future is a very dystopian one.
And they are very concerned that so-called "Megacities" - giant cities with over 15 million inhabitants - represent environments that there are simply no tactics for dealing with militarily.
The video has a certain propaganda flare, but gives an insight into how one of the world's largest military powers sees the future.
