I have a feeling that Huntingtons theory about the Clash of Civilizations might be the next big one.
Globalisation makes sure there will be no World War 3. You don't destroy your customer or your own oversea factorys... would be stupid. I think we will only see wars like Iraq and Afghanistan. When several countrys decide it's best for them to end a dictator that starts to be bad for business.
Whenever I read a reply to me that starts with, "So what you're saying is..." -- and I've read so, so many -- my first thought is,
"What I'm saying is what I'm saying, otherwise I would've said something else."- Zarhym June 2015
I have a feeling the US and Israel will be antagonists.
Thanks a bunch for the Signature, Cthulhu Ftagn.
2014: Israel bars the U.N from inspecting their Nuclear arsenal. Israel then proceeds to accuse Iran for their need of Nuclear Weapons and the U.S backs Israel. Israel and U.S launches air strikes around Iran routing out militant camps which fears Iran. Iran goes to the U.N to denounce Israel and the U.S, Israel and U.S ambassadors the U.N leave when Iran goes up to speak. U.S and Israel convinced that Iran is illegally building Nukes and instead mobilizes the remaining Military presence the U.S got there and persuades Iraq to do the same and meanwhile the U.S station troops among the DMZ which N.K response to the same.
China being N.Ks only ally ask the U.S to tone down the increase mobilization around N.K and Iran but continue to do so. 2015. Israel and the U.S launch airstrikes into Iran getting any Nuclear compounds they have. Russia and China are outraged and go to the U.N testifying that Iran's nuclear resources are used for non-violent use only and should have the same rights to Nuclear arms as the U.S and Israel. In response Iran attacks Israel, and the U.S declares war on Iran and starts mobilizing troops to invade.
In response Russia fortifies Iran with supplies and manpower but no getting totally involved, Israel starts attacking Russian supplies going to Iran in which Russia declares war on Israel which leads the U.S to declare war on Russia. China sends supplies to Iran and Russia but the U.S blockade the straits of Hormuz and China which results in fire exchange and the U.S taking Chinese prisoners and sends them to Japan. China outraged and declares War on the U.S and it's allies and attacks Taiwan, U.S and S.K forces invade N.K and converse with Taiwan to invade mainland China.
Not sure how it's going to end but that's how I think it will start. That's why I don't really want a War with Iran but we should try our best with diplomacy and not beat the war drum.
Also Denmark is hardly Russia, not being able to defend against Russia is not the same thing as being able to squash Denmark -- again.
Ever since the fall of communism, Russia knew exactly how to get out of its socio-economic foibles, by placing incentive in their oil and gas industries and over a decade they were the primary suppliers for most of eastern europe as well as northern europe. This is troblesome to the US, their US bases that encircle the boundaries of Russia are useless to this oil derived economic turnover and steady european dependency to russian oil products.
World War 3, more like smaller WW3.01, WW3.02, WW3.03 spread around the world as it currently is.
It really depends on how it starts.
If North Korea launch a nuclear attack on anyone, I doubt the retaliation with be with nuclear force, however if the United States launched first, I'm sure Russia, Iran, China and any other nation with ballistic missile capability (let alone Nuclear) will start firing.
I genuinely believe that WWIII would be the end of humanity. The sheer volume of firepower the United States has alone is enough to blow a huge chunk clear off this planet. Combine the firepower of all other nations, I highly doubt things will go peachy.
Canada vs the rest of the world.
If a video game developer removed tumors from players, they'd whine about nerfing their loss in weight and access to radiation powers. -Cracked.com
Samsung vs HTC
Nokia will get involved somehow and Apple will choose HTC,s side because Samsung supposedly stole another pattent.
Blackberry will stay neutral. Aliminium casings will be used for warfare.
But in all seriousness. I don't think NKorea is a threat and they won't start it. I think China is a bit cause for concern, but nothing major.
only two countries that may start a war are the US and Russia, the rest are a joke(im not from either of those), and seeing how the US can do whatever it wants for example in Iraq/Iran soon as well, there are no signs of Russia being interested as they benefit from the war US leads on terror.
it started, middle east is at flames, political struggles in europe, eu citizens are rioting against governments and systems, one wrong move and the whole world will burn. we re closer than u think to a ww iii , US wont be so fullish to attack iran or north korea, those two are supported by russia and korea from china too... so imo the spark of war is where it was ages now.. In the heart of Europe. Germany to be more precise
It's obviously going to be when the Autobots side up with the Gundams against the Decpticons... duh...
I don't know everything about baseball. Most people don't know 'everything' about baseball. People fall into two two categories. Person A will, when they see I don't know something, try to explain it to me in detail so I understand it. Person B will use their knowledge to make me out to be stupid. Person B is no friend of mine.
On topic tho i think whatever happens in the next world war, it will be very technological warfare. I think "hackers" will play a big role in taking out communication for the enemies
