I'm thinking it will go something like this:

Once the first missile is fired towards Israel (or from Israel towards someone else) it will be full scale war pretty quick. Like WW1 when most countries involved were actively fighting within days of the assasination in Sarajevo that started it all. Sadly i don't think we will have much time to adjust to the new reality we will be living in.

A coalition of muslim countries will be joining together. most probably under the command of Iran,
USA/EU will defend Israel against those countries.
Russia will join Iran/Muslim coalition and WW3 will be on it's way.
China will stay out of it as long as they can, but will be forced in as a 3rd power in the war when their investments/resources in the middle-east/africa area is no longer safe.

If/when WW3 is upon us (God forbid it will ever happen), this is how I see it start.
But then what?
What other countries will be involved and what sides will they take?
Countries like Turkey might have a hard time standing neutral when there is war all around their borders.
India with their nuclear capability - how will they react?

I'm starting this thread to get your opinions on how this might play out.
It won't change anything but it can't be unwise to be prepared for different scenarios hypothetically playing out.

I must finally make a clear statement - I am strongly against any kind of war.
I believe in humanity and that we are wise enough to avoid this at any cost.
I pray that WW3 will never happen.

This thread is just for asking for your hypothetical thoughts in case everything goes wrong.

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

~ Albert Einstein


I do hope, and pray, that we never get to be witnesses to World War III.

Never.

world war 3 would start off as a conventional war and if the losing nation(s) is at the brink of total destruction and they have nuclear capabilities then they will launch an attack and trigger a nuclear holocaust.

but most likely it'll be proxy wars, because one thing the elite and wealthy hate is being dead and worthless, moneywise.

I like that Albert Einstein quote. All I know is more people will die than any other war.

I think ww3 will be something like a stuxnet attack on infastructure, like power, water, etc. (apparently both us and china have code already in place - NPR story I listened to a while back)

I'm not saying there wouldn't missles flying around. you know that will probably happen at som point, sadly.

I honestly think world war 3 will be started by different nations debt, the need for oil, countries making nuclear weapons and invading other countries. Advanced technological devices will be used in the war and it will probably end up destroying the entire world. The world will literally be on fire.

I think WW3 will start if Iran or any other agressive middle eastern country gets to develope nukes. What has stopped a nuclear war in the past is the MAD factor and the countries with the nukes weren't so stupid as to use them and they have always been viewd by those countries as a last resort defencive weapon with an offencive ability.

If the middle east gets hold of them the rules will change because they would have no problem making their own people "martyr's" in the fight agianst the infidel. Meaning the MAD factor won't enter their heads.

When attacking any nation that has nuclear capability, the first goal would be to knock out that nuclear capability.
Any attack on missile silos, or nuclear weapons sites by any aggressor would result in the launch of all those nuclear assets.

It can get nuclear very quick.

I am hoping that World War 3 will be played out as a conventional war, but that most likely will not occur. One would think that most nations leaders are not stupid enough to use there nuclear arsenals. But unfortunately, when they are facing defeat, im sure they will be used.

Me personally, i would rather surrender and be occupied by an enemy nation than see our Governments use nuclear weapons, it will end most if not all life on Earth.
I am dead against war, i nearly cry every time i see an Australian casualty in Afghanistan, mainly because my brother is heading there soon and i honestly feel strong empathy and respect for our men and women in uniform.

I believe this war will be played out in the Middle East and the rest of Asia and possibly areas of Europe and the Pacific.

China as a growing super power will most likely annex Australia and New Zealand, they will use our resource to fund there military capablities. The U.S. and the EU will be tied up with the battle grounds in the Middle East and Asia. And by the end of it, without nuclear wepaons, i personaly believe that atleast 100-500 million people will die (atleast 80% civilians) from blitz operations on infrastructure. If nuclear weapons are used, it will end our civilisation and we will be forced back to sticks and stones, as Albert Einstein quoted.

Lets all hope this never happens.

It's not if but when will ww3 start. The propaganda war has already started in the US with some members even here at ATS starting the anti Muslim, Islam, Arab drumbeats for war; especially against Iran. War has ceased to be political but more about resource acquisition and maintaining a war based economy. Follow the money; who profits from war?

You never know. Iraq fired several scuds at Israel during Gulf War I and while it was discovered later that Israel moved their nuclear missiles into the the firing direction of Iraq, they stood down and did nothing. You can never be so sure that just because a missile hits Israel even from another Arab power that WWIII will ensue because it didnt then.

Lots of things happen behind the scenes as they did that time.

There would be a lot of civillian collateral damage.

For example, Ohio....could be wiped off the map.

(Hint hint point....)

Didn't the US warn the Israelis not to react so that the coalition with Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries wouldn't fall apart?

The U.S didn't order israel to stay out of it. Rather they persuaded Israel into staying out of it by bringing in patriots to defend israel and though for the most part the patriots were crap in as much as not being able to tell the difference between junk and a complete scud they at least had a political win in as much as keeping israel out of the war. But it wouldn't have been enough if the iraqi scuds hadn't of been breaking up on re entry so the patriots were usually just shooting down junk. had the scuds been effective and not broken up most of the time israel would have come into it and destroyed iraq. Then all hell would have broken lose. Perhaps they should have just let them get it over and done with.

I don't know how WWIII will start...

But I think it will end with one nuke. When one country feels cornered enough to use it, it will be done, and the whole world will see it. The very image of mass instantaneous death will discourage all sides from continuing.

However, I think the end of this war will be somewhat shortlived and peace will escalate into a conflict of total annihalation within a decade or two following. This will be due to society needing a new solution but only knowing one answer.

Just my guess

Of course the US did but we all know that Israel does what it wants if they want to. The US only found out soon after the fact that Israel went on full-scale nuclear launch alert regardless of what the US was telling them. Israel was very much in a "finger on the trigger wait and see stance". Israeli restraint was applauded by the international community but trust, a few more scuds or something a little worse and that restraint was about to be out the _ The US and coalition got lucky.

The US also gave Israel assurances that we had "special wepaons" on some of our ships in case Saddam really got out of hand. Im sure that helped restrain Israel a bit as well.

Doubt that. WWII already ended with only a couple of nukes. I doubt WWIII would end simliarly but with one less nuke than ended WWII.
