A future war in which several major nation of our planet will be involved in. One possibility is a war between China and U.S. The war could be started with a N. Korea invasion of S. Korea. In which most likely N. Korea is turned back by the U.S. and S. Korea. At this point China comes in to save N. Korea and a World War breaks out. The war would take place in Korea and both navies fighting each other in the Pacific Ocean. Conflicts would also be stired up in the middle east in where both countries try to secure oil reserves for fighting the war. The war would most likely end with a cease fire after thousands die and both economies are devastated by not having the trade between the two nations. If over 20 nukes are set off enough dust would be stired up into the sky to block out the sun causing a nuclear winter (nice way to cancle out global warming). The world would be in an ice age only worsening the situation for both countries. America might win but only if China breaks out in a civil war.

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.

Although unknown to the general population, there actually was a "World War 3." The fact that it only lasted 4 and a half seconds is why it's so unheard of. It happened about 2 years ago on October 2nd at 4:13am but ended shortly after when the United States sent Chuck Norris behind enemy lines in Mexico, France, and Iraq. The only reason it took him 4 and half seconds to drop 3 countries is the fact that he stopped for lunch in the middle of it.

1. Unless the human race fundamentally changes, the upcoming war that destroys the planet(and consequently, the human race).

2. Metaphorical description of a highly chaotic situation.
1. If everyone gets nuclear arms, World War 3 is inevitable.
2. My workplace is turning into World War 3!

world war I was sparked by the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, in Sarajevo on 28 June 1914. The Austria-Hungarian goverment accused Serbia of having something to do with the assassination. An ultimatum was presented by the Austrian government to Belgrade on Thursday 23 July 1914 at 6 p.m. A response was demanded within two days, by Saturday 25 July at 6 p.m. Austria-Hungary's expectation was that Serbia would reject the remarkably severe terms of the ultimatum, thereby giving her a pretext for launching a limited war against Serbia.
There were differnt alliances made early in 1914. It was The Triple Entente; Great Britian, France and Russia against the Triple Alliance which was Germany, Austria-Hungray and Italy.
Germany surrendered in 1918 and in January 1919 The Treaty Of Versallies was made to decide the fate of the defeated nations. The majority of the decisions was made by the 'Big Three'- France, USA and Britain.
The Great War went on from 1914-1919. The estimated number of people killed in the war was 17,000,000 people. The heaviest Casualties were;
Allied powers:
Russia- 2,500,000
France- 1,357,000
Serbia- 1,264,000
Britain- 908,000
Central Powers:
Germany- 1,773,000
Austria-Hungary- 1,200,000
Turkey- 325,000
