View Full Version : World War III

World War III is a predicted gigantic world war, which many see as imminent in the near future on the scale of World War I and II, or even larger.

I think the most stereotypical view of World War III (and probably the most likely to happen if there is a World War III), is a nuclear holocaust.

Just curious of when, where, how and why it will happen, that's if you believe it will happen.

Personally, I think it will be sometime in the next 100 years and will most likely be a nuclear war of some sort involving all of the nations of the world that have nuclear weapons. I believe the cause of this will most likely be some sort of raised tensions concerning nuclear weapons.

NOTE: This is quite a controversial topic so hopefully if things stay civil there will be no arguments therefore no reason for this thread to be closed. :)

WW3, don't think it's that far away to be honest.

Would be intresting to think if with the stuff about Iraq/war on terror 'n' all, if people say in 40/50 years regard this as WW3?

Not a cheery thread. Now is it. I'm not looking forwards to any war. Simply because I'd have to defend this crap hole. [/sarcasm]

Seriously. I don't even want to think about it. And I doubt there will be one soon. Unless something really drastic happens.

2. The assasination of Franz Ferdinand ( Arch Duke of Austria-Hungary ) is
what sparked WW1, and i said i can't see it happening with any modern

Humanity is not known as a great learner from its past mistakes, so it would not surprise me in the least if a global war breaks out sometime in the future to rival any conflicts that have gone before.

Except that war was never actually declared in the legal sense (incurring all sorts of trivial little details like the Geneva Convention) so technically this is still under the heading of 'conflict'.

wrong imo! nuclear stuff will have effects world wide and either the ones who start the war don't want to suffer that... imo it will be more like a cold war...
always developing new weapons, and another space run! but this time for colonization! and it seems that Russia developed a strong bomb like a nuclear one, but without the radiations effect... it's called a vacuum bomb... very effective...

Hey. Interesting thread. I once watched a documentary which championed the theory that there never was a WWI or a WWII, just one, long, interlinked, "Great War."
When you think of it like that, If the Treaty of Versailles never happened, Hitler may not have come to power and there would have been no conflict.
(but thats just being technical.)

Some may argue that after 9/11, we are already hovering on the brink of a "world" war,
for oil. But lets not get into that.

I personally think that if there will be another World War, it would be one huge, inter-continental battle for the defence of Earth, against some tyrannical alien invasion.
Now that would be a war WORTH dying for.
Hey aliens, go pick on a planet your own size!!

well not exactly a "world" war! but none of the world wars was really world wide... nevermond...
what i meant with cold war was a "terror" war, more exactly a bloodless war, a war of technology;)
everyday new weapons, the space run, to see who is the one to conquer the new space stuff... the planet colonization! and if there is going to be a wwIII most certainly it will envolve europeans, americans and asians... and asians will probably win... with asians i mean China... sorry china folks, this is how i see it

That's what I thought when I first saw the thread.
The thought of a new World War involving nuclear weapons is really disturbing.But besides what's going on now, which I think could be qualified as a cold war, I suppose nothing as big as a world war could happen in the near future, meaning about 100 years from now.Or so I hope.

12-09-07, 20:34
Personally I doubt there will be a third world war - at least nothing on the scale of WWI and WWII. We learned our lesson and put up defenses to prevent it from happening again.

I have a friend though who reckons China is on the verge of invasion to procure more land for its citizens, and when (read: if) they decided to swarm en-masse into another territory, the conflict would affect and involve the rest of the world...

'Course I reckon she's blethering again. :)

well i was refering to you, but yes you're right... it wont be a "world" war... but if we analize, all the other WW were not as well... it was a semi world war...
and the most probably thing is that the next world war if that is going to happen, it will be a technology war, a fear war, a "cold" war... that's what i meant ;)

Mad Tony
12-09-07, 21:18
War is such a terrible thingI disagree somewhat with that statement. Obviously, war on the most part isn't good. But if the nations of the world had let the Nazi's walk all over them without trying to fight back (and causing a war) then the Nazi's would've most likely ended up conquering the world.

War is sometimes necessary IMO. In the case of World War II, it was for the best.

yes you're right... sometimes we need to battle and start wars, to defend our liberty! you don't want to be conquered by tiranes don't you lenoshka?
because of don't wanting that sometimes wars start... do you think that it is right what Hitled did to the jewish people? he killed millions of people for no reason, only for his sadistic pleasure... the WWII was perhaps the battle for the freedom of mankind!

Yet Mankind was not freed, ultimately more people were less free after the war than before it--and the spectre of Nuclear Holocaust quickly spread fear to all corners of the world. War rarely has good consequences... in fact the seeds of WW2 were sown by the heavy-handedness of the victors of WW1.

well we will never be really "freed"... it is just a strange concept, the whole concept of liberty!
although i said this and will say it again, WWII was good to free us from the evil and sadistic views of Hitler...

a really good way to prevent world war 3, is to unite the world and take care of earth. have all countries unite, just because oceans separate us, doesnt mean we arent all humans.
the government has to change.
and there should only be about 2 children made. cuz at this rate, there wont be enough food and space for evryone.
besides that VERY law^, the gov shouldnt bother with personal affairs: who u marry, ur race, what u do with an unborn child, and ur sexual orientation.

AND, all weapons that can destroy earth should be removed Immediatly. why hav something so dangerous that it can kill everyone?


i think "the end of the world as u know it" that was predicted, isnt completly bad. think about it, what is the world as u kno it? the society is full of turmoil, the little changes arent enough. how do u kno that the "end of the world AS U KNO IT" means things will be better? maybe itll be a better place to live in. it probly means the end of religion and war. i'm sorry if ive offended u, u can hav ur beliefs, but Religion itself is tearing ppl apart.

War begins in the minds of everyday people, such as those who are your neighbours, your friends, your family and even yourselves; and war is declared through a lack of trust and respect.

It is no different for those everyday people who have found power.

We are all guilty of World War III until every single one of us declares war on mistrust and disrespect.

no he isn't... although dani, this might become true... i hope not, because we all would suffer much!
if this ever happens the most sure thing is that it will involve americans, europeans and asians(more specifically china)!
china is growing and developing way too fast... soon their territory will not be enough for them and they will look for expansion...
they are more than 1/3 of the world population...
they are consuming fuel like mads, because their industries is at a very early stage, so since they "destroy" lots of fuel every day, the WWIII probably will be a war because of fuel, or maybe water if the water problems worldwide continue...

I fully support a nuclear war, everything should be bombed so we can return to our old roots. Modern society has become to weak and too dependant on tehnology and have no survival skills. If world war III is nucluer, then a new cycle can be born, people will unify with their own kindred to fight for survival, kind of like those post-apocalyptic films

This is an interesting topic.. so kudos to the starter regardless as to how 'bleak' it is or whatever others said.. the world isn't all sunshine and lollipops you know...

Well if there is a World War 3 then I hope at least it is worth fighting for.. and more importantly... worth dying for if that's possible. WW2 was worth fighting for because of tyranny and oppression... WW1 was the most pointless war ever and basically several countries got together to see who had the larger dick. Millions of young men died for no reason, for no great and noble cause.

But more than likely oil or territorial rages will do it. Or potable water as someone said....... people don't realise what a big issue that will be.. the earth is warming whether naturally (as happens throughout history) or unnaturally (i do enviromental physics in College and alot of the damage is man-made.. and it frustrates me when people don't believe in global warming).. many lakes and streams will dry up in some areas and others will be flooded from too much rain and raising sea levels.

To prevent world war, the U.N needs to be able to stand up to the world powers (there are enough small countries in it) and if that fails then hopefully gays still can't serve in the military 'cos i'll be flamming!!!!!!:D:D:D

Good God I hope a World War III never happens! It would truely be the war to end all wars.
Nuclear weapons would ensure that everybody get wiped out. I also doubt such a war would take place. Most wars in th future are going to be of the variety of a powerful industrial millitary nation picking on a third world country with high tech advance weapons. Simply, they'll be accused of harbouring or supporting terrorists (Used to be communists - but that doesn't wash anymore with the public), then they'll be bombed to ****. Most wars since WWII have been of this type.

Also the U.N can't stand up to the world powers because the Veto Power of the five permanent members of the security coucil allows the powerful nations to dominate the weak.

Thats dumb **** they sell people in sci-fi with little relationship to the real world.

Coporations aren't really big enemies of each other. The populous/consumers are the common enemy of coroprations. It is the consumers who are trying to drive down prices. Corporations also would have no chance of surviving without being propped up by a nation state. Without a nation state they have no legal protection, they're abilty to survive economically would severly handicapped.

Pfttt, in the unlikely event of a WWIII, it will probably involve China, US and Middle East states
