There will not be a WWIII because its not winnable!
All the powers that could start WWIII would be stupid to do so. And I think they are more friendly in secret than they portray in public.
They are also aware of the threat of a common enemy!

Yes, it could happen.
I think it's far more likely to happen now than it was just 20 years ago mainly because we are talking about a generation that has never seen war on that kind of scale. The last of the old WWII generation is more or less gone and they were the ones who could remember what that was like.
But until it does, there is no way to say for sure what, if anything will set it off.
I mean, who would have thought a single assassination would tip the scales into WWI? But that's what it was.
How many activities do people engage in that they know are harming themselves on a daily basis? Every day that goes by without something horrible happening only fortifies the belief that nothing will happen. How far up the scale of harm do you have to go before the global 'we' says, "OK, thats enough."
