There is no wokeism in modern warfare it is just because there has not been an all-out war since WW2 but there has been limited wars against separatists in some parts like The Indonesia-Malaysia fighting communism in 60s and 70s, Sri-Lanka against Tamil tigers, US against Taliban, Turkey against PKK etc etc.. These are limited operations against separatists and uprisings but not an actual war.@HitmanBlood you can proceed the discussion here
I would argue that US still remains a superpower, it is not even a country but an empire, an empire which can project power with impunity in any part of the world
But wokeism affecting the military is a real threat, people should be selected on the basis of the performance alone, not for inclusivity and equality
As evident in the PLA or The Russians they don't give a shit about inclusivity, they only care about effectiveness

The world is avoiding a major clash point that can uproot the entire world and not many wants to see the current world order and status quo destroyed for if it is destroyed the world will enter WW3 which will be bigger then anything we have seen where upto 6 billion people could die as consequence of Nuclear winter. The Borders or current status quo won't be able to change in the world unless a major WW3 engulfs the entire globe.
There is no wokeism example between Pakistan and India they know if they go at it there is no de-escalating and as a consequence the world will enter WW3 due to nuclear winter taking shape both sides understand that the well being of the world is on the line something far bigger then themselves.
The same with Russia and the US example a major war was avoided in Ukraine here recently had the Russians gone in and clashed with the Ukrainians the war could have spild into greater Europe and spreading hence why the diplomacy was strong to stop. The same case in Israel-Gaza issue there was major risk of it spreading to the region then to the world it was averted or the Armenian-Azerbaijan war itself could have spread if Turkey-Russia didn't handle it professionally and ended in diplomacy after 6 weeks of fighting. Nobody wanted it to continue past that not the UN, West nor the regional powers it was common interest across the board.
It is a matter of understanding when it is enough to stop so that it doesn't uproot or chellenge to topple the current standing world order. The major countries, UN, Nato and other major alliances understand and calculate on before what can get out of hand and what can't so everything is done in a measured way and this is done in the interest of everyone and if these people didn't consider that we would have been living now in an post-apocalyptic world where only 10% of the current world population would have survived.
But once the World economy collapses it will be the final bell that means go and every nation knows this and everyone will get involved and I mean literally everyone where alliances and banding together will occur.. Meaning this will ignite war everywhere and there will be no order or power to stop it and wokeism will be a myth in that stage and what you see today is not wokeism but it is people trying to perserve civilization as we know. That is why UN gets involved in everything even over Pandemics we have WHO for that. It is to perseve human civilization as we know..
Intially wokeism is a myth imho because there is no need to be over-aggressive and take extreme measures when there is no need for it
