That's a cool story, bro.
Just a few things;
Egypt wouldn't attack Israel unless provoked (Egypt makes some pretty pennies from selling Israel gas) and would most likely back the attacks on Iran
with political, economic support.
Iraq would become embroiled in civil war with anti-US sentiment coupled with anti-Iranian sentiment. Both sides would be propped and armed by
The EU would send battle groups to fight Iran and Syria which would lead to riots on the streets at home.
Israel would need to utilize their entire air force to knock Iran out and keep themselves safe in the weeks that follow. Iran isn't going to sit
back, it is going to send it's own strike groups coupled with long range missiles.
Syria wouldn't be able to do much on the ground because of the civil war but they could launch their chemical weapons and scuds into Israel/Turkey
and cause some pain while Iran's ground forces begin a campaign of aggression against Turkey's land forces and US forces in Iraq.
Russia would arm Iran and make some power plays by beefing up their military strength in the region and neutralizing the ABM shield in Eastern Europe
while China flexes its own muscle and draws US forces away from the Middle East, weakening the Western strike capabilities.
Libya's civil war (which is still on going) will kick off again with Gaddafi supporters and tribal mercenaries squaring off against each other and
the NTC with the possibility of spilling into neighboring nations.
The Kurds would begin a bombing campaign in order to seize a homeland in Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Iran which would draw resources from all
aforementioned and would give the US a regional ally (they sacrifice parts of Turkey to gather another puppet regime).
Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Yemen, Jordan and Bahrain would be embroiled in missile war against Iran and whatever uprisings may occur (accentuated by
Iranian support) and would end up being caught in the midst of a storm.
Somalian pirates would start attacking vessels with anonymity because US attention would shift to Iran.
Israel starts to become over run by the constant Iranian, Syrian, Hezbollah and Hamas missile strikes and as a last ditch attempt to save themselves
send a nuclear war head into Damascus and Tehran which is met with fury and hatred from the survivors and quickly turns all the middle eastern nations
Pretty soon Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Libya, Pakistan, Russia, Iraq and Jordan all descend on Israel with intense missile strikes.
Israel recognizes it is going to fall and the US utilizes its entire arsenal to crush the Arab League and it's allies.
Pakistan, after losing thousands to radiation poisoning, decides to nuke Tel Aviv and the US retaliates by bombing Pakistan. China joins the war after
Pakistan calls for help and they Pakistani-Sino forces massacre their way through India and whatever US forces they can find.
Japan and Taiwan, with S. Korean support begin attacking mainland China and are met with Russian-Chinese forces. The resultant war leaves both sides
weakened but China and Russia still hold the advantage.
N and S Korea resume fighting and begin to butcher each other, the US bombs the North and China retaliates by sending missiles against S. Korean and
American forces. Another front opens up with both sides taking heavy casualties.
Australia and NZ bulk up their own forces and prepare for any aggression from China while allowing US ships to dock in their ports which makes them a
The European Union then attacks Russia in an effort to alleviate Japan but are met with Russian missile defense systems and are kicked back, bloodied
and battered. Russia then steamrolls over Europe and becomes active in the Mid Eastern front by crushing Turkey and Israel while sending hardware to
Iran and to prop up Syria.
America over extends itself by fighting in Europe, Asia, Mid East and Oceania before the S. American countries rise up against them and remove
whatever US forces are present.
Cuba and Mexico sign an alliance and prepare to counter any US strikes against them.
After Moscow is nuked, all major European cities are razed to the ground and left in pieces.
Peace talks are set up and the war ends.
China, after taking tens of millions of casualties, is now the dominant power in the region and controls huge swathes of India and Mongolia with
Pakistan seizing land in India.
Iran, Syria, Israel, Turkey, Arabia, Egypt, Libya, Somalia, Kuwait, Jordan are all left broken.
Bahrain is returned to Iranian control while Arabia takes control of the UAE.
Korea is unified under Northern control while Taiwan and Japan retain independence.
South America is broken up again into independent nations.
WW3 ends leaving hundreds of millions dead and all world powers broken.
Countries that were neutral during the war gain power.
