253: Where To Go If We Have World War III – Dave DeCamp

Dave DeCamp interviewed by Mikkel Thorup on The Expat Money Show Podcast

Today’s guest is the news editor over at Antiwar dot com and host of the daily podcast Antiwar News with Dave DeCamp. In this episode, we will be discussing the geopolitical situation as we head into a possible World War III scenario.

While it’s not the cheeriest of subjects, this is a necessary conversation to have given the current state of affairs, so I hope you find great value in it.



  • Listen to Dave recount how he first became a passionate antiwar activist and how he was able to turn that passion into speaking about the subject full-time. 
  • Hear Dave break down the current geopolitical situation involving Russia, Ukraine, and the U.S. and its NATO allies, and why we are closer to a hot war situation than at any time during the Cold War. 
  • Dave breaks down how the situation between China and Taiwan is escalating simultaneously and how the United States has been sabre-rattling on the Asian front as well.
  • Dave and I discuss the role of Elon Musk in providing Starlink support to Ukraine. Is he really a hero, as many libertarians seem to believe, or is he another wolf in sheep’s clothing?
  • What would a full-scale war involving the U.S., Russia, or China look like? Dave breaks down the frightening possibilities of “warfare we’ve never seen before.”
  • Has World War III already begun? Dave and I discuss the idea that the war has already begun and how the definition of just what constitutes an act of war has shifted so drastically in recent years.
  • We discuss Turkey’s unique role as a peace broker and a thorn in the side of NATO in many ways, even while being a member state. 
  • What does Vladimir Putin want, and how far is the U.S. willing to continue to escalate its vast funding of the war in Ukraine? Dave and I both ponder these questions.
  • We also dig into the role some surprising countries have played in escalating tensions, like my former home Canada and even the supposedly neutral Switzerland.
  • Dave and I cap things off by discussing what the best region of the world would be if a full World War really does break out.

Antiwar News with Dave DeCamp



As much as this is a conversation I didn’t necessarily want to have, I don’t think it helps us any to bury our heads in the sand as some truly dangerous situations play out across the globe. I’ve been listening to Dave’s podcast since he started, and he was the first person that came to mind when I decided I had to do an episode on the topic of a potential World War. I hope the information proves useful to you as you plan your expat journey.

    Thanks for sharing Dave and Mikkel. Lots of interesting information about what is happening in Ukraine, Russian and the rest of the world. Like you Mikkel, I believe we need peace and not the flexing of muscles. I am not a Putin fan but it sounds like he went in to shut down labs and to save children as well.

    Also, in my opinion China also has information gathering centres in Canada right now. Thoughts?

    Glad we are looking at Latin and South America for our new home.

    ALL this boils down to a controlled demolition and implementation of a nefarious technocratic, de-humanized, authoritarian regime. Humanity will be treated like cattle.
