WW3 isnt going to start, but i wouldnt be suprised if something significant involving Iran or some other main enemy of the West in regards to the nuclear situation happens.
Simply put, Iran doesnt have the arsenal yet even if they have mastered and produced some sort of nuclear warhead; and they've yet to test anything either. So the idea that in a couple of days, Iran will pop out of the woodwork with a bunch of nukes mounted on intercontinental ballistic missles capable of reaching the Western Hemisphere or Northern Europe is simply put irrational and ridiculous.
They might have the technology, but its still somewhat new, i reiterate they havent had any nuke tests. The U.S. has recon on their ass like a mother, satellites & spy planes, unmanned drones, you betcha. We'd know if they tested.
Personally, I think the most likely event that would happen on the 22nd would be an Iranian nuclear test, or an open statement to the world that they have finished work on a nuclear weapon that they intend to test and make more of. The least likely yet possible enough to post would be if they launched a simultanious offensive with Hizbollah, Iran hitting eastern Iraq where all of our troop placements and bases are, while Hizbollah launches some longer range missle like a Zelzal from NORTH of the Litani River @ Israel over the latest Israeli commando raid or another escalation in the near future, and restarts open hostilities.
This is the war scenario, but i think if anything itll be a statement or nuke test.

Of course, having nuclear weapons certainly helps when it comes to global affairs.
