I personally would put the probability of WWIII happening at pretty low. I mean, if it does, it's the end of civilization as we know it.
On the other hand, I think it's quite likely that we have continual skirmishes for many many many years such as Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kosovo. These battles will vary in size and may sometimes have multiple participants, but the thread of ending it all looms too ominously.

Not really...China has too much to lose economy wise and US not in a position right now. I can see the two teaming up to battle the coming mid east war...

A war would be moronic and destructive for both sides on extraordinary levels. China needs us and we need them...going to war on a military level would not benefit anyone.
Also, a "World War" isn't simply declared. There needs to be various countries declaring war on each other.
Example: Israel declares war on Iran. Russia declares war on Israel. We (United States) declare war on Russia.
For the next few years, mayhem and warfare.

We own the high ground and he who owns the high ground...
I am not worried about China or any other country at this point.
