Please stall this until I die of age, thank you! I'd rather not experience a war.

I would LIKE to think we were smart enough to learn from the mistakes of the last world war but I dunno. People are stupid. Maybe we'll get nuked right now.

Sorry to laugh, but I remember the 80's with the Cold war and the very real threat Nuclear war.
This is all just political posturing in comparison.

There may, and probably will be, regional conflicts and terrorist attacks in or from the middle east.
But no real global war to speak of.

I'd look more to the growing danger of major civil unrest in Europe and the US as the so called Global Elite push the inequalities between the rich and poor to breaking point. But as usual the herd can be easily mollified with a few new tech candy toys.

The way things are going currently, it is small possibility. The media is more focused on causing chaos than keeping people informed on what is going on around the world.

I don't feel like posting every reason which I believe could lead to WW3. Here are a few current events.

The US activated a missile defense shield in Romania.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-36272686

Vladimir Putin is frustrated at the US / NATO over this.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PgSX-WD96Q

Putin quotes that he doesn't know how to get through to the US / NATO anymore.

The US and Russia have debates over Syria. China and Russia are upset over the US missile defense system in South Korea. China is concerned the missile defense system has some reach on their territory.

On top of this, there is another massive banking failure looming over us. Nations are becoming more aggressive in protecting natural resources.

North Korea is rumored to be getting nuclear material from Iran. Iran has been threatening to annihilate Israel. This list of WW3 situations are endless.

I think conventional war more than likely would happen, nuclear war is less than likely but a possibility. Any nation that uses nuclear weapons knows that they will be retaliated against. I did read a article that Russia and China have tons of underground bunkers to hold a large number of its people.

Some even say that WW3 has already started for many years. But people will agree or disagree on that.

There are too many things that are going on behind the scenes that we don't see. I could see WW3 happening in our lifetime. Just not sure it will be a all out nuclear war. If nuclear war happens, it will be a last resort for the nation the fires the first nuke as that nation will be wiped off the map.

At least in my opinion. That is my 2 cents.

I do not know. Until the day WWIII is actually declared I'll have faith we'll avoid it.

Putin may be upset with the US over the sanctions and what-not, but he's reasonable enough to understand the catastrophic consequences of engaging in a world war, especially when everyone and their grandma has a nuke. Same with Xi Jiping as well as other major leaders.
I'd argue that even Iran is not crazy enough to try and start a world war. N Korea might try and provoke, but let's be honest - they're ants in comparison to the major powers. any ounce of a threat would be neutralized quickly. Some would argue that China could back N Korea, but that's doubtful, especially now when China is mostly capitalist and has important economic relations with the rest of the world.
tl;dr nothing will happen.

It's probably just a matter of time until Europe starts a new war, but with any luck it won't be any time soon.

I doubt another world war will be declared in our lifetime.
