I'll always consider the Cold War to be World War III. It involved multiple countries and even had hot wars every now and then in the form of the
Korean and Vietnam conflicts.
World War IV has been going on for the last 12 years in the form of the Global War on Terror with no end in sight. Sure it may not quite as big, but
it does involve multiple countries across the globe. Its a hot war that the USA has been involved with longer than any of its other named hot
Slow burning and cold wars that span the globe are just other forms world wars can go by. It doesn't need to involve actual nuclear ICBMs.
