i've never done one single thing to encourage a world war. I've never declared a world war on anyone. how on earth does this forum, or talking about a possible (or unfolding) world war cause it to happen?

I started a new thread in the Alternative Breaking News section about Libya and an apparent propaganda war, to find it was moved here, to the WW3 section.
I really think the mods/admin need to create a sticky, outlining at the least their rationale for this forums existence.
The War on Terror (also known as the Global War on Terror or the War on Terrorism) is an international military campaign led by the United States and the United Kingdom with the support of other NATO and non-NATO countries. Originally, the campaign was waged against al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations with the purpose of eliminating them.
Tonight we are a country awakened to danger and called to defend freedom. Our grief has turned to anger and anger to resolution. Whether we bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done.
Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and isolated strikes. Americans should not expect one battle but a lengthy campaign, unlike any other we have ever seen. It may include dramatic strikes, visible on TV, and covert operations, secret even in success. We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime.
This is not, however, just America's fight, and what is at stake is not just America's freedom. This is the world's fight. This is civilization's fight. This is the fight of all who believe in progress and pluralism, tolerance and freedom.

aahahahahhhahahhah!!!! call it a HOAX when the bombs drop, friend. Just because we live in peace in America does not mean that the world isn't currently ravaged by war. Find me the largest geographical region on earth without active warfare and I'll show you either a place where humans don't live or one of the world's super powered nations. The biggest fattest nations will be able to insulate their population from war longer than the 3rd world, which is already engulfed in conflict.
When they were happening, both of the first world wars were viewed as primarily European wars, America entering the fray later in both cases. In neither case did warfare ever reach our shores, so I'm sure that people back then didn't realize that the conflicts were as serious as history is able to recognize.
Either way, we will only be able to say conclusively who is right once it's all said and done. Maybe the news section isn't the best place for this, but it certainly has more credibility than UFOlogy or the Annunaki. It is a theory based on real and unfolding current events, in other words, the news.

Why is this in the news section like it's already happening? Easily the most bizarre thing I've ever seen on here.
