The Resource Wars was the lead-up to the Great War that plunged us into the irradiated Wasteland we all know and love. It can’t be looked at as some giant war that involved several world powers, as in World Wars 1 and 2, rather the Resource Wars is a term used to describe a period where the world’s powers are embroiled in their own conflicts. These conflicts revolved around a lack of resources. The Americans and the Chinese were embroiled in the Sino-American War, the European Commonwealth and the nations of the Middle East were fighting over oil, which in turn led to the European civil war. All of that culminated into the Great War, which only lasted a little over two hours.
Note: Cyrus’ audio is a bit bad for maybe the first minute of the show. Keep listening…it gets better!
