He used several present examples to try to show that the world was doomed to world wars all because of cultural differences . This close minded opinion shows the world through a tunnel vision outlook that neglects key facts . His incorrect thoughts process could lead to disaster if shared with world leaders . Huntington believed that the world would surely end with cultures going head to head and starting wars, cutting alliances, and completely cutting these countries out . In his opinion it was happening right now . He coined the nations of Islam, the Sin´ic nations, Western Cultures, and Latin America . He believed that the conflicts we were having all stemmed from the U .S. involvement in international affairs. He believes we created resentment with our brutish and pushy influence . In Huntington’s paper he gives the example of the Bosnian conflict . He says that this split into fault line where all the different sides fought to gain control and spread their ideas and cultures .
