If a world war broke out, I would try to flee the country. Go to a place that I don't think would send troops, or extradite me in the event that
Canada conscripts (I am 20, I would definately be conscripted). Probably South America. Honduras, Argentina, somewhere safe.
I think that with the worlds problems escalating the way they are now, it will start within 10 years. It could start next week, with the tensions with
Iran, or it could start in 9 years with a situation with China or Korea. It is hard to say what the catalyst will be.
Destruction wise, it will be devistating. Both sides will lose more troops in a shorter period of time than ever seen before. The weapons today are
meant for mass killing. I expect casualties to dramatically pass the daily average in WW2. Possibly even double. Cities will be bombed and leveled,
but I don't think nuclear weapons will be used. Nukes are being kept as means to prevent the other nations from using their nukes. If one nation has
them, they will be used. If everyone has them, then nobody will have the balls to press the button.
I would do everything I could to stop myself from going overseas to fight. Looking back at history, the people of the nation that has done the most
evil, don't realize it's too late, until it's over. The Germans in WW2 for example. They didn't know the horrors their country was committing.
They thought they were the good guys, and we were the bad guys. I would not be sure whether my country would be the one causing the problems or not,
so i refuse to put my life on the line.
To me, war seems like a glass of scotch. You have it for the first time, and you are repulsed by it. But, if you stick to it, and you aquire the taste
for it, it isn't so bad. I can see war being similar. It will be horrific for the first few battles, but if you manage to stay alive past them, you
will get used to it, and may even enjoy going into battle to kill your enemy.
