Walk of Fame Apparently James Blunt Saved The World From World War 3 Published 3 months ago on Nov 30, 2018 By Michael Evans It may sound strange to most, but we all have an unlikely hero to thank for stopping a third world war: James Blunt. That’s right, according to Blunt via a BBC radio interview, the singer directly disobeyed an order from his superior to attack Russian troops while an officer in the British military in 1999, and it looks like he made the right call. Dangerous Encounter The debacle came when Blunt and his men were ordered to take control of an airfield in Kosovo. Unfortunately, Russian troops had arrived first. “The direct command [that] came in from Gen Wesley Clark was to overpower them. Various words were used that seemed unusual to us. Words such as ‘destroy’ came down the radio,” said Blunt. Noise11 Smart Call Blunt had no intention of carrying out the devastating action and luckily he had some support. The British commander Sir Mike Jackson got on the radio and declared that he did not intend to let his soldiers, “start World War Three.” The commander then suggested that the troops circle around the air base instead. Things ended well, and despite a two-week standoff, the situation was diffused between both sides and crisis was averted. According to Blunt, the Russians eventually ran low on food and water and became open to sharing the airfield. Amazon.com Firm Stance Blunt said that even without Sir Mike Jackson’s intervention he still would not have complied with the dangerous orders as he feared the results. “There are things that you do along the way that you know are right, and those that you absolutely feel are wrong, that I think it’s morally important to stand up against, and that sense of moral judgement is drilled into us as soldiers in the British army.” Vulture So next time you think about the prospect of a third world war, think of James Blunt and how he helped keep the peace in Kosovo.
