I've read this thread for a few months now, and if I believe in a Conspiracy Theory of a few people running the world is beside the point.. WW3 will happen regardless. Little old men don't have to run the world for that, it's in our nature.
What has existed since the beginning of man? War..
And with modern technology, it's only a matter of time.

The USA is the goose that laid the golden egg, as far as the rest of the world is concerned. America invented the modern world, America even invented the NWO. How do you get away from that?

I say drop the nukes already. Let us have a nuclear winter, and a large population decrease. What they heck. We (humans) have managed to evolve into greedy, self-serviant beings that don't care about anything but ourselves. When there's glass parking lots all over the world, maybe then we'll realize how terrible we really are...

In Dickens' classic "A Christmas Carol", Scrooge asked one of the ghosts
if what he was shown was "what will be, or what might be".
It turned out that the answer was "what might be". Scrooge mended his ways, and a happy ending resulted.
Look at the stunning reversal of Global Warming. Who could have predicted?

Aside from reactors, many facilities will have an underground component. The Natanz site provides an example. IAEA inspectors reported construction of two-metre thick walls and suggested that the three 190x170m cascade halls will be underground. The 75 foot deep foundations of these halls are typical of ‘cut and cover’ facilities aimed at reducing vulnerability to aerial attack. The generator halls are likely to be covered with a thick reinforced concrete blast cap and either rock rubble or packed earth overburden.
General Yury Solovyov, commander of the Air Defense Forces Special Command (former Moscow Military District Air Defense Command), said: "Currently Iran has our [Russian] air defense missile systems, which are capable of tackling U.S. combat aircraft. Iran also has French and other countries' [defense] systems."
"The S-300 systems have not yet been delivered within the framework of the contract concluded two years ago. However the contract itself continues to be fufilled,"
Russian state news agencies have confirmed that Moscow signed a contract in 2007 to sell advanced, long-range S-300 air-defense systems to Iran, and "the contract itself … is being gradually executed."
Tehran has already taken delivery of the SA-15 advanced mobile SAM, and is expected to receive the long-range S-300 system later this year.
