This is the start of the Gog-Magog war. The hook was put in Russia's jaw and now its only a matter of time before something happens to get the Arabs to unite and try to invade Israel.

Even if it were a sneak attack with nuclear weapons it would only delay the inevitable full scale retaliation. By analysing the isotopes created in the blast it can be quickly determined which country of origin the nuclear device came from. I believe they can even go so far as a specific plant and even which mine or field due to the ratios of isotopes found after a blast.

If that were the case though, all our nuclear assets would be mobilized and itching to strike. Just on that info alone I wouldn't be surprised if Russia launched their own strike just to get it over with.

And a nuclear war has no winners, not even for the oil. If a majority of the population is wiped out, demand would go down. And maybe that's what the war would really be about: population control.

I've been on here since 2007. I sincerely believe we are very close to something terrible.

What happens if Turkey hits Russian planes? Or Russia hits Israeli or US planes? Or the US hits Russian troops?

Or if the USA hits Iranian troops? Or Iran hits US planes? Or any other combinations.

We have Hezbollah, Iran, Syrian loyalists, Syrian rebels, ISIS, Russia, China (enroute), USA and the Coalition... Israel. Turkey, various factions of Kurds....

Lots of conflicting elements right there.

That's pretty much how I feel as well. So many players involved. Too many chances for mistakes!

It is going to happen and I also think we will see it in our lifetime..

China. China is a wildcard. Their financial system is on the brink while they build islands in international waters, putting military bases there. China also has warships in the Mediterranean but have not joined Russia in it's efforts there. (yet)

China is NOT a wild card.

They are on the Russian side and so are India, Iran, Pakistan, Egypt, Brazil, North Korea and several others.

From events in Ukraine maidan, Chinese quickly learned that once NATO overpowers Russia then China will be next on the list. Hence in a real fighting breakout, Chinese will be with their northern comrades from the onset.

I suspect you might be correct, but as of this moment, militarily speaking, they are not involved in this conflict. (yet) Hence they are a wildcard until they act, which they have not. They may show their cards soon, we will see.

If US throws a UN resolution to stop Russian flights in Syria and China atleast abstains then they are on Russian side.

In the previous UN resolutions on Syria, the Chinese vote was AGAINST the outside intervention or no-fly zone etc. proposed by the west.

a reply to: Wookiep>>> I think they might stage a World War 2.5 or a very hot new Cold War. I said staged because it will be choreographed by both sides working in cooperation with the end goal of deceiving citizens into thinking its real. We'll run fearfully to both governments and Obama( who might be kept in for a third emergency term) and Putin( who will be hailed as a strongman hero to his people) will make out like bandits. Not so much Obama since he's a phony creature owned by puppet masters, but he'll love being hailed as a hero. Syria will be taken over , they've already engineered an exodus and limited extermination. The whole of the Middle East is their goal, I think the Saudis are already making plans to cash out and run if things go bad. I worry about Israel, honestly. Iran is in the crosshairs as well. We'll have potential terrorists brought across our borders like in Europe and they'll be scapegoats for anything that happens, if its them or not. All done to keep us afraid and begging our governments to control us more and to protect us.

As tense as things are right now regarding Russia's involvement in non-coalition airstrikes against ISIL and Assad's enemies...I have to say I doubt WWIII will happen anytime in the near future not unless one of two things happens;
Below is pure speculation..

1) Both NATO coalition forces and Non-coalition forces(i.e Russia and/or China if they decide to get involved) suffer severe political setbacks that are reprehensible enough for parties involved to be prosecuted but nothing is done. Similar to: [url=]
It would be enough for support at home to be strained and cause further distrust between citizen's and their governments. Opportunists Within activists groups who explicitly support philosophies against 'big government' could possibly ignite social unrest that would spread globally, using the tragedy as a hallmark for further support of the movement. This would arise similar to the Occupy Wall st movement a few years ago but with greater ambition for reform on all levels of society,politics and the financial system. With the way police are militarizing these days this could no doubt set up for a very violent cluster # of a situation, especially in North America, police violence would just further the cause. This tension very well could lead to the 'Global Communist revolution' that Karl Marx was hoping to happen, except the end result would not be a communist utopia. If the global revolutionaries were successful over throwing the governments, the world would be much more divided on what to replace the current system with. leading to further conflict among political warring factions similar to the warring states/provinces of Feudal Japan just global.

2) ISIS or ISIL is defeated and the remaining parts of what was ISIS controlled territory is carved up by the remaining nation-states(US, Russia,Israel) who invested both long term military and financial expenditure into the regions. Using each territory as a proxy for geopolitical influence to further economic control over the remaining OPEC nations, as the U.S is dethroned of being the world reserve currency by China and officially becomes the new economic world super power. Since most people know this is happening one way or another this could cause some serious economic despair, many investors both foreign and domestic will over time start moving most investments over to China. This would leave a void in the U.S. Which would force congress to cut defense spending even further, as the U.S will rely heavily on imports this gives many of it's enemies the chance to strike by imposing economic sanctions against the US. With the U.S backed into a corner like a rat, not too soon after large parts of Canada would be annexed. With this reprehensible act world condemnation would come swiftly.

3) Nothing significant happens that could increase global tensions over the region and a new boogeyman in the ME or in another part of the world the "west" has interest in and the same thing that has been going on for decades since the 80's rages on. All while the same people who profit from these events are neither tried nor convicted. A UN global task forces is proposed to then combat terrorism and to enforce international law. Many members in the general assembly agree such a proposal would promote further cooperation with nation states to fight a common enemy. Patriots and nationalists globally would feel sovereignty of nation states is truly at stake and many would even go as far to say a global government is around the corner...

All speculation aside most countries if not all don't want war, war is far too expensive both financially and politically to maintain. So if anything more of the same will continue.

As my avatar suggests we are 30 seconds before midnight and this will be the world we leave to our children?

In case of a world war, there would be an armed conflict between two rival groups or blocks of nations. This would be a total war scenario where every resource and manpower of a nation would be mobilized for the war effort.

Will the current situation in Syria lead to a World War 3 scenario? It seems unlikely now unless Turkey, Saudi Arabia or Qatar directly intervene in Syria in order to bolster support to the rebels. And even if such a scenario unfolds, there might be a possibility of a regional war and not a worldwide conflict.

However, there is a strong possibility of redrawing of the current borders in the middle east because of several factors in play such as the Yemen-Saudi war, Iran-Saudi rivalry, reducing oil prices, IS related extremism and the Russian intervention in Syria. The following is the "blood borders" map that might indicate towards such a scenario in the future:

Here is an old mock news report/war of the worlds styled movie that describes a war game scenario where a middle east crisis eventually leads to World War III. With the exception of the middle east country named in this movie, the scenario depicted here is almost familiar to what we are witnessing now:

Strategic nuclear forces were recently overhauled and revised under Obama.

It seems China already has plans to join Russia in the bombing campaign of Isis.

Well, look at some of these headlines "Saudi Arabia says no future for Assad in Syria".

Do you think, it's up to Saudi Arabia who is in charge of another sovereign country? Well, look at Saudi Arabia's track record ... Extrem Islam'ism ... where people are beheaded for major offenses. Does that "sound" like ISIS or what?

The only nation, that isn't an Islamic extremist state, left in the middle east (besides Israel and Egypt), is Syria. That kind of makes you wonder doesn't it?

Wether the US intends to or not, or wether they are aware of it ... or not. They are aiding extremists around the world.

From the looks of it, the Russians have done in 4 days with a handful of aeroplanes. What the US couldn't do in 4 years, with an entire army.

You think it's a coincidence, that the US is yielling ... it actually supports the theory, that the US is ISIS ally ... and makes more than ground for all accusations, about Al Qaida during these past years.

Ook so now China is getting involved as well. I wonder what the West thinks about China's move on that?

Don't forget the Japs, also voted to deploy troops overseas, so it looks as though we have all the key players getting in place for a showdown and turn our beloved earth into a wasteland.

I just also saw on DW german news, that Turkey and it's western allies were at it again accusing Russia of invading their air space for a mere "few seconds" due to bad weather, seriously, few seconds only.

It's ticking time bomb

Everybody relax. Russia is too smart to go toe to toe with the US. If and when they decide to bring us down, they will seek out far more efficient means. Heck, all it would take is sneaking one nuke to a States-side cell of patsies. The patsies would just have to set that one nuke off in one American city. Once the shock and awe had set in, the patsies would then just have to contact the media, say "yep, we did it" and "oh, by the way, we got one more nuke up our sleeve, to be set off at a time and an American city of our choosing. Have a nice day! " The populations of every American metropolitan area would go ape #; the cities would clear out, there would be mass displacement and utter mayhem, and America would cease to be effective beyond its borders. All from just one nuke the Russians could plausibly deny responsibility for.

A financial "cold war" has been ongoing for several decades.

A financial "hot war" is about to begin it seems.

Makes no difference unless you would allow it to.

The only difference between a cold war and a hot war is that during a cold war there is plenty of debt accrued and a hot war death is accrued.

Debt vs Death, same old # different day.
