With the Middle Easter Conflict of Israel and Lebanon escalating and Israel stating that may attack the hezbullah supported Syria which may run the chance of bringing Iran into the conflict. And the U.S having to then militarily help the financially backed Israel State. Are we on the cusp of World War 3.

I think we can call such a war a world war, even though usually a world war would have groups on both sides that are international, whereas here we'd have a Coalition versus regional middle eastern powers.

Though the War on Terror is, effectively, world war 3 already, this is just a part of it.

Some have used the terminology of WWIV, which I rather like. When people use to talk about world war 3, they were talking about global thermonuclear war between the US and USSR. Thus with the end of the cold war with its battlefields as vietnam, afghanistan, etc, was the end of world war three. Thus the terror war is the war beyond that, world war 4.

At the same time, you can't really have a world war in a unipolar world, unless it was the UN verses the US or Russia for some whacky reason nuked the US.

Why must we label this stuff?

To satisfy some religious aspect?

So we can make it sound worse than it is?

It is just another skirmish in the war that has, and will continue to be fought for years and years and years.

At least till Mother Nature wipes us out.

I, sir, would be one of those some.


The WOT is definately WWIV, IMHO. The latest salvo between Israel and Lebanon is a battle in the larger WOT. WWIV started in earnest on 9-11-2001. It is a perpetual war with no end and no winners. The losers; We the people-who for our own protection need to be monitored from birth to death to make sure that we are not "terrorists".

WWIII(WWIV by my definition), started in 1979 with the Islamic Revolution in Iran. And has been building into the WOT for 30 years.. now thats gradual for you.

Its funny but WWIII and WWIV kinda overlapped a little.
