Here's where I think possible world war size conflicts could could happen, or at least start in...
I feel that if the EU works (as it looks like it will), you will probably see something along the lines of a United States of Europe created. Most of
the countries in the EU have the same overall politic and the eastern block countries would love to have western european investment. This would
instantly create a second world power, with a whole lot of resources to compete with the US... This could create a situation between the US and the
EU (or USE lol) with Great Britain somewhere in the middle (they will NEVER join the EU).
China is another problem...they are usurping the US economy and the US is just taking it. Also, you have their North Korea ties, and if the US enters
conflict with them, who does China lay their allegence to? Or do they play both sides like they always have.. China would be the one country the US
does not want any part of in an armed conflict...
Now finally you have the middle east.. If it weren't for oil, this wouldn't even be an issue. Who know's what'll happen in this hell hole. One
thing's for sure, Democracy will not work in this region. There are too many cultural conflicts that have been going on for far too long for a true
democracy to take hold. The US thinks (hopes) it will...
