First up, as was mentioned WW3 is already underway. War today is not the same as it was 50 years ago with forces facing off across a field or body of water.
There WILL be an attack on Iran in the near future, that will solidify the Arab world against the west for certain, but there will be no united front as a result. The Middle East will unite in spirit, but nothing will materialize. Actually, you will see more infighting than unification (part of the plan perhaps?). Russia and China will sit back and will not partake in direct confrontations even though they oppose military action against Iran. They cannot afford a war financially just yet and will wait to get involved ($$) in the cleanup.
The bird flu is just a nasty coincidence and will amount to nothing. There will be sick people, but there will not be a pandemic, or even an epidemic. No conspiracy here folks, even though it’s great theatre to think so.
As far as any kind of financial crash, I don’t think so. Don’t confuse national debt and trade deficits with being out of cash. There may be a flow or pipeline problem, but not a deficiency problem.
Massive air strikes against Iran’s military and nuclear infrastructure, not boots on the ground or occupation, just an attack. The big boys will stay out of it (directly) and wait to see what happens, to much to gain or lose politically to do anything else. Middle Eastern powers will scramble to fill any power voids and gain leverage as they always do resulting in further instability and violence. Iran’s people will revolt against its government as they are already torn and repressed leading to more instability. After a period of time it will be business as usual: A violent region governed by nations who want its oil. The bird flu will fizzle away eventually.
And that’s it! No godly interventions and the world isn’t going to explode. Now if you’ll pardon me, im off to the store to by plastic, duct tape and 100 gallons of fresh water…

lol, honestly BH, I amazed you were sucked into this one.
and while I am an alarmist myself to a degree, I at least try to get my facts straight first.
PS. And by the way, it's not that I don't feel like something real bad is up all the way around, because I do. Just not for the same reasons, links, and interpretations here presented in the first post by the author...

Skippy is obviously the optomist amongst us...
... if you look at the companies that are trading unusual volume you'll see something very very scary. They are all basically companies that you would need is a serious crisis.
MOD EDIT: Fixing a long link... What's scarier is coming 16 days from today.

but i guess thatjustweird is the expert. everyone out there including the experts are wrong and have no reason to fear because the US is indestructable
come on be real, if iran goes through with this thats a major blow to the dollar and its hold on oil trade. when all the countries start going..."hey this stuff is worthless lets convert to the euro" then you'll definately kiss your ass goodbye. why you attempt to say that there is no way for it to happen i cannot begin to understand, your sources must be biased or something.

1. Bird flu - There have been what? 100 or so victims (who were either bird farmers or people around birds) since 1997. 100 every 10 years. At this rate it'll take at least 200000 years for it to reach the level of what some of these people are predicting

Pardon,me,Skyptic,but if millions of Arabs are killed by "surgical precision nuclear strikes" ,if radioactive clouds are formed throughout the region...I'm sure they'll not limit themselves to rhetoric....
Yea,the world IS going to explode....it's wainting to explode in fact,all the frustration of major powers vis-a-vis USA,all the lies and deceit regarding 9/11 ,Afghanistan,Irak,Iran,Madrid and London attacks.
Human nature..if you'll be a country leader,whould you accept in your heart for a "super-dupper power" to organise terror attacks on your capital,in oder to gain your support for the war?
Of course you''l be angry,of course you'll be for the payback when the chance arises
The book of Revelation speaks about the "war of all against all ",when all nations will no longer know if they are at war or at peace with all the other nations.
