there is not going to be a ww3 simply due to the fact that every ones economy and standard of living is dependent on global trade and cooperation
what we are seeing now are the death throes of the power structure instituted at the end of ww2/beginning of the cold war as the elderly people who gained and held power through that structure make a mad dash to maintain control
the world isnt what it once was it is becoming more and more globalized and no country of significance can afford to go to war with any other and it is becoming more and more beneficial to cooperateedit on 16-9-2012 by sirhumperdink because: (no reason given)

I'm sorry guys but i'm really going to have to step off the train. This video is huge speculation. The maker of it ignored every single socio-political issue going on in these countries and focuses ONLY on NATOs intervention. By the way, NATO doest NOT equal the United States. The creator of this video makes NATO seem like the US private arms contractor to carry out their dirty work. Yes, the US spent billions and billions on military might, good, I'm glad they did. Now i'm protected, does that make me a war monger? Sure hope not.
The only thing in the video that I can cling on to is the concept of Russia and China protecting Iran. I think the worst thing that could happen is a draft kind of like Vietnam 2.0, but not WORLD WAR III

Just a correction, I see WW3 coming for some other reasons and NOT your federal reserve stuff..
• North Korea threatens US and says \enough\ to US presence around. Also we can say Nkorea an enemy to South Korea that is supported by the US.
• Iran also against Israel, Israel supported by the US, Israel disagrees on US's lack of serious decision towards Iran, Israel threatens to EMP Iran's Nuclear Program to stop it.
• Economy crises - while somewhere countries stablize, others not going well including in EU, debts
• Protests of many people against bankers and those who bring people to misery
• Protests AGAINST THE MOVIE RIDICULING ALLAH all over the world
• Various political unrest in Siria that is torn between US supporters and those that do not, there was even a speech of the terrorists addressing Siria and that they do not follow what their religion tells them
All this currently is making the situation unstable and on the edge, if something bigger occurs, it may happen sooner. One thing - may it bring an end to this RELIGIOUS FANATISM AND ALL FANATICS IN RELIGION DIE WITH IT

As long as there is half the adult population in this country on the government dole, you will never be able to create a revolution of any kind, why you say, because now the government has 60+ million brown shirts that will not allow anyone to take what they fell is there way of life. Sure they are mostly nothing but cannon fodder but 60+ million strong......................well maybe 57+ million, you won't get some off the couch............even if it did mean loosing there free ride.
As long as they get their free ride , they don't care if they bleed the system to death, so they'll stay on the couch or porch eating McDonald's and breeding like rabbits until its all gone then migrate somewhere else to find the leafy green foliage and stuff themselves there until its gone too.
I.e., My friends are more concerned with the Kardashiens and Kate Middleton to pay attention to what's really important, I fear the same trends across this country, a pop culture that takes everything for granted.
The only thing that will wake this country the # up is actually ww3. Until then, the majority of our American youth a$$clowns only care about is music, texting, looking at pop and looking hot.edit on 15-9-2012 by Lonewulph because: (no reason given)

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