OVER the past weekend, Iran and Israel have engaged in one of their most serious confrontations to date. While the two countries have long had a tense relationship, a recent series of back-and-forth strikes has sparked a new direct conflict in Syria. Critics have warned it could explode into a war capable of further destabilising the Middle East.
Do not fall for the BS from the MSM. I have never met a Syrian that has ever said a bad word about him or living in the country and I have worked with enough of them...

Just what I was going to say.
The world has been far closer than this to wwIII. Bay of Pigs. Cuban Missile Crisis. Hell, the Berlin Airlift. The entirety of the sixties and seventies... Need I go on?
This thing in Syria is no worse than any other proxy war. Bad, yes. WWIII? Not so much.

Sure it will eventually happen but not in this lifetime. There is no need for big wars due to the small skirmishes that require a constant flow of of new weapons. I would say this is what world war 3 looks like..we are in it..
