Being a conspiracy theorist, I'm not the one to think that the entire Middle East is actually gunning for the end of the United States. However, the U.S. is certainly giving them reason for that these days.
9/11 was a highly dubious event to a lot of us here, and I'm quite certain a second such event would not dissuade our opinions. Rather even further galvanize them.
The biggest threat to create another World War scenario is the United States itself right now. If the U.S. continues these types of pre-emptive wars, it will most likely get the country listed as a rogue nation and economic sanctions will be handed down. If that would happen, disaster will befall the United States and much as the desperation for economic stability spurred WWII, the next big one would commence. And it most certainly would not be the U.S. vs. jihadists stuck in desert wastelands. It'll be vs. the big names regarding money like China.

If you're one of those who thinks that the U.S. had foreknowledge of 9/11, or perhaps even had a hand in it, then there is certainly no way to prevent another attack as it will be allowed to happen again. I think I previously mentioned being a conspiracy theorist and I must also point out the nature of this message board.
