You read it right, folks. There will be casualties, but after it is all said and done it will then be a better world much different than before.
All the laws the planet has been compiling have got to go. The world needs to reset and go off into a new direction. Which of you also hope for a 3rd world war?
Look at it this way...
It's a win/win if a 3rd world war happens. How so? A much needed decrease in population will be for those left to inherit. That is a damn good thing. And if you are paradise-bound, then you go to paradise if you physically die in the 3rd world war in somehow. That is a win/win for those who make it and those who don't.
I also hope you have the keen eyes to see that the current world needs world war 3. The world right now is a hellhole. It's going to take a lot of dying, but that's what'll do the trick to correct this world.
So look foward to a 3rd world war. Lets hope the U.S. does something to cause Russia and China to kick it off. I am tired of waiting. I can live or die through world war 3 and be a happy guy either way. If only many of you would stop being scared of death. It's just a physical thing that will pass with time.
CHEERS TO A WW3!
At the end of the 20th century, wealth was concentrated among the G8 and Western industrialized nations, along with several Asian and OPEC nations. An Energy Information Administration report stated that OPEC member nations were projected to earn $1.251 trillion in 2008, from their oil exports, due to the record crude prices.
A study by the World Institute for Development Economics Research at United Nations University reports that the richest 1% of adults alone owned 40% of global assets in the year 2000, and that the richest 10% of adults accounted for 85% of the world total. The bottom half of the world adult population owned 1% of global wealth. Moreover, another study found that the richest 2% own more than half of global household assets.

People who are unsatisfied with their lives and achievements, the world around them and even hate themselves, always pine for cataclysmic upheaval. It's the delusion that such events will somehow make their lives better (and punish those they perceive have done them ill) that drives these feelings.
Too bad they know #-all about history, war or the implications of thus are beyond what junk food TV like Fox News shows them of the likes of recent atypical conflicts, like in the Middle East conflicts... and that they themselves would be one of the first expunged if such scenarios were to play out.

Just an idea that im going to throw out there to everyone...
How about we use all the recouses, money, technology and time to help solve world hunger, explore space, terraform mars, improve the quality of life, make less labour work/general work for people to have to do (more people = less hours work/more money per hour, only logical right?)
Instead of blowing the sh*t out of everything and all that we have worked for in the last 100 years or so?
Just an idea....

There would be no "new world" after a war - the same people who are in control now would remain in control.

A war is no guarantee that a new way of thinking will emerge on the other side. Everyone thought WW1 would be the end of all wars, it wasn't. WW3 will likely not be the end of all wars either, I really don't think anyone is stupid enough to use nuclear weapons, given the implications of using them. You have to wonder if even the Ayatollah is stupid enough to do that.
