I am not the least bit afraid that WWIII is going to start in the near future. What is going on in the Ukraine is NOT going to draw the US into a war
with Russia. What is going on in the Middle East is NOT going to draw the US into a war with Iran or Pakistan either. War with a Middle Eastern nation
would not occur with the US invading a country like Iran. And none of those countries would attempt to start a war with the US even if they US
re-invaded Iraq. Even a war between Israel and her neighbors is unlikely to draw the US into a full-scale war, or a ground conflict. It would take a
whole lot happening for that to occur, and nothing like that is happening right now.
I do not see any US actions causing a major power to declare war on the US at this point in time. And I don't expect the US to launch an outright
attack on a major power, nor anyone allied with a major power. I am not worried about North Korea either at this point. US intelligence is closely
monitoring the nuclear situation in North Korea, and at this point it is nothing to be concerned about. And a war with North Korea, the US, and South
Korea is not a world war, and is unlikely to draw China or Russia into full-blown war with the US.
We have already seen what occurred with the Arab Spring, and I remember people talking then about how WWIII was imminent. People have been saying this
crap since WWII ended, and the closest we have been to a World War since WWII was during the Cold War. There is virtually no threat of a war with
Russia at this point. The threat of war between Russia and Ukraine is not even extremely high at this point. It is a possibility, but definitely not
inevitable. I do not see any nation, especially a major nation, launching any wars of expansion or anything, similar to what happened with Japan in
WWII, or Germany for that matter.
The start of WWI was not due to the assassination of Ferdinand either. That was just the excuse used. Or sort of the last straw. That was already a
tense situation. Because times have changed so much, with the advent of much more liberality and mass communications worldwide, wars of that nature
are less likely to start. More and more people are more accepting of those who are different, and you do not have nations hating others as much. It
still occurs, especially in the Middle East, and places with religious differences, but things are nowhere near as tense as they were in the early
And one of the most important factors is the public mood. Wars sometimes cannot happen without the support of the people. And it is extremely unlikely
that the US population would allow a war with a major power unless they were directly threatened. Does anyone honestly think the US populace would
support going to war with Russia over Ukraine? Your understanding is extremely skewed if you believe that. It would take an absolutely massive
propaganda campaign to gain the support of the US populace, considering Russia is not going to be the aggressor against the US. And small scale
incidents can occur between two nations without triggering a war, especially a world war. And another important thing to consider is that alliances no
longer mean that one country has to send troops to another part of the world. With the advent of modern technology, much of the fighting will depend
on that technology. It will not take as many ground troops to win a war. In fact, massing ground troops would be extremely dangerous against a modern
military power nowadays. Much more so than at any point in history. And that is not even considering the nuclear option.
