That is a pretty good question in my opinion. I think there are a few countries that could kick off a global war, but there is only one that I am
really worried about, and that is China. Well, North Korea as well, since they could potentially start a war between China and the US, instead of
China starting a war with the US themselves. Aside from those two countries, I am a bit worried about Pakistan and Iran. Out of all the countries on
the globe, those are the only four that I feel could spark a war with the US.
But, I don't think that Pakistan or Iran would ignite a world war all that easily, although the Muslim nations could be united, and the whole thing
could turn into some kind of religious war, from their point of view. But I do feel that NK or China could ignite a world war quite easily. But
today's world is a bit different from what it was during the previous world wars, and some countries might opt out of war, knowing what a world war
would bring, and what it would look like and mean for the fate of the world. And nowadays, with nuclear nations, world wars aren't what they used to
be. It used to be you could invade a country, attempting to annex territory, and your enemies had to seek you out with ground troops and physically
remove you from the territory. Nowadays they can just use missiles, even nuclear missiles, and accomplish major destruction.
A modern world war could potentially look very different from WWII. And the stakes would be higher than that of any other war as well.
