The one thing you need to happen is two sides that are at least close in power. When one side like the US is a hyper power and allied to most of the planet the idea of a world war becomes impossible. China is going to fight for nobody but, China and is already surrouned by powerfuk hostile states, Russia is isolated and its military is a mess and it also has no interest in fighting for anybody but, itself. That leaves you with North Korea, now outclassed by superior South Korean forces. And then a small hodge podge of mostly failed or failing states like Venezuala, Bolivia, and ISIS.

Meanwhile half the world defense spending alone comes from the US. The US Airforce is by far the largest in the world by almost 3 times. And the Second largest Airforce in the world belongs to the US Navy. The US defense treaties will most of Central and South America, including Brazil, Chile and Comumbia, with most of Europe including NATO and the EU, with most of Africa including cooperarion agreements between NATO and the African Union, with most of the middle east, and with most of Asia. In particular the new US/Japan/India trilateral/South Korea/ANSUS/ASEAN.

The simple fact is no power has ever been as completely dominate on the scale the United States currently is. So much so that old enemies like Iran, Cuba and Vietnam have seen the writing on the wall and moved to join the dominate side.

An over glorified house of Cards. You speak in absolutes as if absolutes exist. While you carry weight in your point in the imbalance of powers that have been talked about recently (US and Russia). Economic, more specifically the banking world can play a part in changes along with a host of other things. The geopolitical situation is written in sand not stone.

Except that weight is at every level. Not just politcal and military. It extends to economics, culture and PR. China keeps most of its 3 trillion in cash reserves in dollar bonds. That is how ingrained the US in every facet of power. Minor santions have wrecked Russia. None of that is going to change anytime soon.

Your probably right, I remember after WWI we hit Germany hard leaving their economy in ruins. The rest of the world was aligned against them so they would never post a threat to the world again. Haha now that I'm done being facetious I mostly agree with you and not comparing Russia to old Germany just pointing out a world isolating a proud country with rich history creates an environment for the possibility, however small, for an extreme reaction. Not saying anything will happen just not ruling it out.
