Will World War III happen in the 21st century?

If you asked people in the 1950s if WWIII would start in the 20th century, they would have probably said yes. Similarly, most people will answer that it is likely in the 21st century. There are multiple local conflicts with foreign powers vested in

Who will declare World War 3?

Most likely: The eventual loser. The only uncertainty is the amount of blood that would be spilt along the way.It doesn't matter who makes the declaration, aside from being illegal as per the rules of the UN, it is an abandonment of diplomacy and sufficient justification for otherwise neutral bystanders

Will the next air strike in Syria by the US start World War 3?

If Syria and Russia didnt retaliate last year and this year to missile attacks, I dont think they will be goaded into responding in kind, that would lead to a huge war. Thats probably what Israel and neo-Cons are aiming for. The U.S. air strikes have killed Russians and Syrian troops; Israel air

What are the main reasons that are keeping humanity away from a Third World War?

Mutually Assured Destruction. The next total war to involve two nuclear powers will be extremely costly, and could wipe out the human race. This motivates nations to limit their warfare to proxy wars, rebellions, civil wars, and other non-nuclear, non-total war means. Also, I would second the global economic interconnection, and would

Well, if we ever faced an alien invasion, there likely wouldn't be a world. If they were anything smarter than us, you would see destruction on the scale of Dave Consiglio's power.Farewell fellow Humani,Robert Nelson

What will trigger WW3?

There are many obvious flashpoints. But most of them are between neighboring countries- Pakistan/India, Israel/Iran, China/Taiwan. Those should remain regional wars... unless an outsider broadens the conflict.In today's world that would be the US. With many hundreds of bases around the world, plus the US Navy's 12 carrier groups and scores of submarines patrolling everywhere, the chances

Are we heading towards World War III?

World War III has been ‘about to happen' since the end of World War II, and yet it never has. And I doubt it ever will, at least not in our lifetimes.The potential belligerents simply have too much to lose, and a self-preservation instinct that would prevent them from trying. Let's

Will WW3 happen?

Worry Wart Answer: Worry and concern over what may or will happen can cause a great deal of stress on all peoples. To the point of inducing uncontrolled mental illness. I have even known Christians to fall victim of prophetic eventualities. Because, once you start crunching the numbers and become aware that more people typically die after an event

Ireland.(but broadly speaking potentially any state that attempts Democratic Reform)The status of Northern Ireland is weaker now than it was in 1972 , when the British were genuinely considering leaving.With Brexit , and the fact that 55% of N.I want to stay in the European Union but Britain itself does not ,

How will WW3 affect South Africa?

Since the question calls for speculative fiction, I recommend two works of speculative fiction that can be applied, mutatis mutandis, to South Africa:1, On the Beach2. Down to a Sunless SeaThere's probably room for a third novel in that genre, dealing explicitly with South Africa, should anyone be moved to write one.

Is Germany going to be in WW3?

WW3, who would be the players in that game, NATO lead but the Americans, China and Russia.Russia is a very capable regional power but not a super power, the difference is can it project its military power and/or influence other nations to pursue a

The whole point of the nukes is to make that conventional war impossible, as well as to deter nuclear war.Every country fears that any nuclear power would always revert to using their nukes rather than being overrun by conventional forces and having

Read the book ‘On the beach' by Nevil Shute. It is an old book but still relevant.In the book the Southern Hemisphere initially survive the total devastation of the Northern Hemisphere after WW3 but is eventually overcome by radiation.In the same way Africa would be spectators (as will be most of the

If the atomic bomb was never invented would WW3 happen during the cold war

I think that the most likely two times when there would have been actual fighting between the US and Russia if nuclear weapons had not been invented woud have been 1. Cuba 1962 2. Vietnam 1965 to 1974.I have read that President Kennedy was considering bombing Russia during the Cuba crises but

Most likely it will be either China, Russia or North Korea. China is strong enough to take on the United States alone. But North Korea and Russia are not strong enough. Russia is still technically recovering form the Cold War, and North Korea does

WW3 Map: Could this be map after WW3?

Interesting map. Not how I'd see it develop. The first point is there'd be winners and losers. If the Western alliance (Europe, US, Canada, Australia, India, Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, Columbia, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, plus a few misc minor states) wins then a lot of the map remains unchanged.
