With the world as incredibly unstable as it is, does anyone else agree with me that pretty soon, say, in the next few years, there will probably be another world war? Think about it, right now everything over in the middle east with iraq and afghanistan (which was suddenly forgotten, coincidence?) and all those other countries is like a pile of ice cubes on a paper towel.

The first world war had incredibly unstable countries packed into one tight area and eventually somebody hopped up on the hate wagon and the wheels fell off. (Assasination of Archduke) and then countries started fighting and taking sides. If I'm not mistaken, the area was called something like the powder keg because it was ready to blow any second, all it needed was a spark.

The second world war had a whole bunch of cowardly (not by choice, but by circumstance) countries surrounding a hostile country. The cowardly countries weren't really cowardly, but would basically do anything to keep peace because they didn't want to get pulled into another war and then into another depression. Anyway, the hostile country kept advancing, the other countries said "hey stop". The country advances again and again then attacks and once again the wagon's wheels fall off and the passengers go cannibalistic.

Now what about the world today? How incredibly brainwashed are people today to think that peace will last forever? We almost had a world war since the US declared war on Iraq. We were this close *holds up fingers*. The situation is obviously not resolved. The US is still in Iraq, whether you support it or not, I don't care, I'm not stating my position either. But the point is, we're there, people are getting killed constantly, the Iraqis are still fed up with us being there. Seems to me as if we're on the brink of another war, and the irony is we're there BECAUSE of a war! Some damn news stations are calling the US-Iraq situation "George Bush's Vietnam" because some politition (the name slips my mind) said that. It possibly is, but we aren't going to want to be "humiliated" by leaving Iraq like we left Vietnam, especially since we're technically not at war at the moment.

Plus, it seems that the only MAJOR countries are Britain and the US that are actually willing to step up and DO SOMETHING, even if it means our own people protesting and Bush basically committing political suicide (in my opinion). If there was another Hitler, I think he could easily take advantage of the world's reluctance to fight just like it happened in the beginning of world war two.

So my question overall is, do you think there could be a straw to break the camel's back soon? Is the situation tense enough for that to happen? What do you think?


P.S. I'm no historian by any means, so if anything I said is false, I apoligize, and feel free to tell me so.

world war III has already started under the guise of the War on Terrorism. It is a full-scale global operation and should be called WW3.

I agree, but I doubt that it will be in the style of WW1 or WW2 I think it will be more like what is happening now than pitched large battles

Countries will pick sides to stand on more and more, but I do think that there will be more then two sides. Unfortinitly, it seems as though all of the sides will be against the US.

I think Iraqi's are going to step up to the plate and try to kick the NWO's azs. Iran is stepping up to the plate, and it's just a matter of time before other countries start stepping up because the US gov/military is getting to uppity and dictatoral....

didn't G.W.B say "I am your dictator" ????

Well, do you think it's possible that a war will be fought in the style of WWI and WWII? As in full fledged warfare, not small attacks here and there, but with large scale battles. I think it's bound to happen sometime soon. But then again, taking into concideration all the technological advances, it probably wouldn't be fought by soldiers as much as it would by the air force and bombs.

This whole war on terrorism may as well be called WWIII, pretty much the whole world has been suckered into it, and it can't stop no matter who is in office. It's become an institution and it will go on and on, soaking up hundreds of billions of dollars, just like ever other imaginary war we have, except on a much more grand scale.

There will be a lot of money going into peoples pockets. More money will "disappear" from the annual budget. Probably more arms race nonsense, but on a quieter level...

right then,
to put it simply...yes.
China has been the latest threat to the U.S, russia has been the legendary "suspect", and there you have it, you have 3 super-powers (the obvious ones), that are likely to annihilate each other if one starts stepping on the other's toes.

the U.S broke that barrier for "respect" when it launched an attack so close to russian turf, you will see upcoming events, like russia neglecting "truce" agreements with NATO and the U.S, and blockading itself in again, ergo: down comes the iron curtain.

yes, i understand what you're hinting at, and yes....it is inevitable, i'm afraid.

one can only prepare for the worst, i would recommend immediate evasion,

A doc on BBC 2 (UK) last night showed all technology used in the Iraq war, they took over the computers and radio signals, highly effective but i cant help feeling it takes the little honour that left out of war.

Would not another world war dessimate the plans of the NWO? More and more countries are falling back to nationalism, not globalization. It seems that a war would be the last thing they would want.

would be lovely for those seeking a new world order. Similarly to how old Russian Stallinist Communism preyed on weak countries to instill communist doctrination so too will the nwo. Once the major powers have destroyed themselves (of which I would hardly call Russia one... wishful thinking on some's part.) The nwo top brass can step in and take control. A rather savy plan if you believe in that sort of thing.


lol that bit about wishful thinking indeed was for you cyrus. glad you liked it.

you just HAD to call it wishful thinking now didn'tcha aero


lmao

not wishful thinking,

here's some reasons why
1: ICMB missiles...top-notch equipment, best in the world today...deadly to all nations on this globe, including the U.S

2: nuclear arms deposit (2nd biggest), russia was first to create the TZAR bomb, which left the U.S speechless?

3: hell, even the kalashnikov beats the m4a1/m16 etc...

and that's just outlining some bare factors, YES it counts as a super-power, i can tell you, we have our technology established as it is, providing a proper war is funded, then the economy gets kick-started back on it's feet and we're set to go on putting the new-generation ideas into production...(im simply relating to old ideas, i have no clue what russia has up it's sleeves)


Cyrus

ps: russia sold t-80 plans to the chinese, the chinese still haven't been able to build an identical copy, with the blueprints in hand...does that signify how "advanced" the russian industry may be?

I beleive the war on terrorism Is world war 5
After the napoleonic wars
After WW1
After WW2
After The cold war

The war on terrorism is a flexible term that can be used to describe any U.S effort to destroy terrorist and there supporters

Then why did Hitler band together with the Japanese? And go into Africa and had designs on attacking the US mainland? Hitler would have eventually gone after the big prize, just thank god he was stopped.

Really Cyrus?

Interesting....
You are aware of the recent comments of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov? If not, here are he thoughts on what you speak of:
Russian Army Could Not Wage War

Or the comments of commander of Russian Rocket (Nuclear) Forces, Gen. of the Army Vladimir N. Yakovlev has indicated:
Organization of the Russian Armed Forces

Strategic Rocket Forces (RVSN). A second regiment of the new SS-27 Topol-M missile system was placed on alert duty. The Commander, Gen. of the Army Vladimir N. Yakovlev, asserted that the new missile can be equipped "with a powerful set of means to breach anti-missile defense." Weapons and supporting equipment deteriorated throughout the Strategic Rocket Forces. More than 70 percent of its missiles require extensive work to extend their operational life, as do the majority of fixed command-and-control facilities and 60 to 70 percent of battle management assets.


Maybe the analytical comments on the Russian Air Force:
Organization of the Russian Armed Forces

The average annual flying time was 10 to 16 hours for fighter pilots, 18 to 24 hours for pilots in ground-attack aircraft, 12 to 26 hours for bomber pilots, 20 hours for long-range aircraft pilots, and 44 to 60 hours for military transport pilots. Exceptions to this were the bomber, ground-attack, and reconnaissance pilots flying missions in Chechnya.


This is the "outlining some bare factors"....maybe even a bit of a reality check of sorts.


Richard Nixon has mentioned, within the historical contexts of the Cold War Era, that:

''World War III has begun, says Richard Nixon, and we are losing it.

THE REAL WAR

Germany had no intentions for war with the Western nations. They shared a common culture and history. It has been shown here on that the Germans let the English evacuate at Dunkirk. France only declared war on Germany after Germany invaded Poland.

Germany had absolutely nothing to gain, and everything to lose, from a war with the west. They were mostly after the Eastern countries (Russia in particular), for their resources. Hitler signed a non-aggression pact with Stalin to furlong the impending war with Russia.

As for Africa, since Germany was allied with Italy, and Mussolini decided to conquer Ethiopia, they also developed an interest there. Especially after the Western Nations were drawn into the war, so they could protect their southern flank.
