personally the "war on terror" is a dead issue its not going anyware, its been around since the dawn of man. you can't win it, you can just only
try 2 do your best to contain as much as possible here and there.
could a terrorist act lead 2 WW3? nothings 4 certain, maybe but very doubtful
IRAN will get sanction 2 death and build their bomb and the NORTH well i have no idea
the only scenario that has the potential to lead 2 a "major conflict" is the one between CHINA and the US over TAIWAN
CHINA has may no secrets about wanting 2 reunite that small island off it's coast to the mainland 4 quite sometime.
as CHINA expands it's economy and might grows
US war planners have hinted and rumored that sometime around 2025 CHINA would have the "all out" capability 2 challenge the US and stage an attack
and launch an invasion against it's island neighbor in "?"
the "?" is
is TAIWAN really worth the US growing 2 war 4? because neither CHINA or the US(more so) can't afford 2 go war without "drastic major
now here's were it gets really good and how this conflict could spread
there no secret about the bad blood between CHINA and JAPAN
JAPAN has publicly come out and stated that they would come 2 the aid of TAIWAN if attack
JAPAN has also hinted that they would start their own nuclear weapons program 2 counter CHINA's
SOUTH KEORA because of its alliance would no doubt enter, on the side of the US and JAPAN
and of course lets not forget about our nuclear armed NORTHERN COMRADES(NORTH KOERA a close friend of CHINA) who would view the SOUTH's and JAPAN's
involvement a cause 2 arms
so there you have your major conflict now what do you need 2 make a WW
your "?" wildcards
what role, side or stance would RUSSIA, AUSTRALIA, INDIA, PAKISTAN, and EU take in this matter is what would be missing 2 make it a WW3
so folks grab lawn chair because this could turn into a very good show! only time will tell
