Ya people expect some big ol war with some fancy cause like the last ones. Well a world war has been going on for a long time, is been nothing
big little proxy wars for generations. But in the end if you tally up the numbers its pretty much the same as any big world war that people expect, as
such it is more effective. So ya! the whole world war 3 thing is not coming on some nondescript mystical date, it has been going on for a long time.
It however just has not been televised and advertised as that to the populous.
On the onset of globalization the technological age and the constant wars for resources and control, I do not expect even the tinder box areas like
India, Pakistan or the middle east to light up and go full on nuclear war, expect a bunch ever on going proxy wars by both and all powers involved,
till such a point that the areas are no longer useful and have been striped. At which point things will move to greener pastures, etc, etc.
After the west leaves the middle east expect the more extreme factions to take over, and even expect them to be democratically elected, and if not
well then a little bloodshed will win then there place. Its practically how it goes and its no mystery why there getting funding, and support, or
were from. Its all basically just set up that it will be an ever ongoing thing. Like the op said the new wars are fought were the old ones remained
unresolved. So no WW3 will not start in some grand faction and fashion, like all wars it is an ever going and flowing thing, and the reverberations
of the first world wars are reverberating and are going on right now, though albeit on smaller scales all through out the world, it will not
accumulate in some big grand concert "cue the curtains" like the other ones though. Because frankly its just not necessary.
The whole thing has moved beyond that. It will be an ever on going thing on a smaller scales, thought more spreed out which ultimately puts in and
outputs the same amount of energies that the first two world wars did. So no WW3 will not start in some far off day with some vague yearly given
number, it has started and is going on right now step by step slowly and surely, though not quite as people have been conditioned to think it will be.
There are always deviations from the past, and in each age such things are manifested though if albeit following pretty much the same rules and
models, they are always a bit different in there implementations to suit the age and the times.
And so in such matters never ask yourself how will it go down? That is folly. Ask how is it going down right this very moment? Because it's not some
mythical thing, its merely just the ebb and flow of civilizations and the aspect of group dynamics and there ecosystems. People have a tendency to
look for the flashy and noisy which will be happening in some far flung day, but overlook the very things which are right in front of there noses at
that very moment. The elephant in the room I believe its called, the things which they turn a blind eye to.
