There are also many, many books, novels, short stories, scenarios, pamphlets, tracts, magazines, comic books, movies, and television shows dealing with this subject.
"I don't know what weapons will be used in the Third World War, but the Fourth will see the survivors...armed with clubs!"--Albert Einstein
After the Soviet Union declared bankruptcy in 1991, many avid fans began to wonder if there will ever be a world war 3.
A World War 3 fan base club, Al-Qaeda, helps spark excitement in 2001 after their attacks on New York and DC. This help speculate rumors that World War III is the making.
Iran, North Korea, Russia, and China are all trying to co-direct World War III with the Americans in hopes of releasing it by 2012.
World III will feature Commies, Terrorists, Canadians, and over 20,000 weapons of mass destruction just itching to go off!
Another possible war could be between the western world and the middle east. Though unlikely because the Quran accepts Christianty as the same god and the west accepts all religions or no religion whatever. It could happen if the west keeps screwing over the middle east like it has been for the past well... I guess since the west was. Like I said its unlikely because your average arab and American have no interest in killing each other and those are the people that will fight each other. If it does happen it would likely spark by an invasion of Iran. Iran will be devastated and suicide bombings will be going off in elementary schools across America and sick stuff like that. Causing American soldiers to be brutal to Iranians which then get the whole middle east against America and the western world.
I truly don't know what could happen with a culture clash like this and I hope it doesn't happen.
Both possibilities should be avoided and can be. By not trying to start any more wars, recognizing China as a major power and allowing Iran to have nuclear energy as long as they let the U.N. observe them, war can be avoided. China has no interest in going to war with America because they would lose their economy and likely never regain it. The middle east won't go to war with the west. And if Iran tries to start something and the U.S. responds they will likely take the U.S.'s side, unless Bush invades Iran then it will get bad.
Peace be with you my brothers and sisters.
1) A war which involves the whole world (or most of it, including all of the major countries). It is often predicted but hasn't happened yet.
2) A slang term, meaning a huge fight or 'disaster zone' (both literal or figurative).
NOTE: This is often shown as "WWIII"
2) "OMG It looks like WWIII in here!" ...OR "They're about to have WWIII"
Features the usual Cold War era nemeses (U.S.A. / U.S.S.R) and their respective allies (lackies) with fighting taking place in various theatres, notably central Europe and the Middle East.
First published in 1978, revised in 1982; commonly referred to under the genre of "future history", but can now of course be classified as "alternate history".
A very realistic and intriguing account of what COULD HAVE happened, but thank God, never did. And an excellent read.
