Let's discuss that from where, the WWIII might start?
1. South China Sea (US teaming up with it's allies in South China Sea and provoking China by attack on it's navy)?
2. Middle East ( 2 or 3 Arab countries joining for offence or defence against Israel?
3. War on Kashmir?
4. Any other place ( Probably by direct conflict b/w USA and Russia on major Cyber Attack etc)?

Not sure really but honestly, none of the four scenarios you mentioned seem likely.

  1. With deep vested trade ties and China rapidly growing its influence around the world, the two super powers will try to avoid any conflict that might end up challenging their "Super Power" status.
  2. I don't see ANY Arab country going against Israel. Not unless there are some drastic changes in these countries first. Kind of a revolution.
  3. Not likely. India again also is a growing economic power, they wont want to trigger anything that hamper that progress. Pakistan on other hand will remain focused on improving economy and maintaining credible deterrence.
  4. If it didnt happened during Cold War it wont happen now!

Are you sure about 3rd? With the Balakot incident and article 370 stunt do you think current Indian regime prioirty is economic development of its hatred towards Pakistan?

On point 2 , I think chances are of reverse working i.e. Israel's attack on other countries in middle east as the sole purpose of Israel is formation of promised which cant be completed without capturing Jordan, Syria, Iraq and parts of Saudia and Egypt.

Relax, guys. While parity between the US and Russia in nuclear weapons exists - there will be no WW3.
But in future we have some options.
For example - US develops weapons dozens times more powerfull then nukes with unstoppable delivery means and risks to attack Russia. 1) Russia is destroyed, all other countries swear eternal allegiance to the United States. 2) Before attack Russia shows it has the same or more powerfull weapoms - no attack (new parity). 3) New US weapons destroyed the whole world.
So - I think strategic parity is the only insurance from WW3.
Why do you think world war 3 involves nuclear states only ? Can't it be middle east muslims versus europe?

Because sides of the war must be about the same level. Middle east muslims are no match for Europe (in this century).

The sole purpose of such attacks and provocation was to get their own extremist public to gather in support. Yes there are chances that the way the RSS lead government is pushing the masses to be extremist in nature things may go to a point of no return but knowing their love for money and wealth, i think it wont be happening soon. Also i am sure that Pakistan is not a walkover and India knows that too.

Israel wont need to ATTACK any country to accomplish it!

Nops, I am sorry but do you really think that the middle east Muslims will stand up against the Europe and America or Israel?? as i said, it is not going to happen, not without a bloddy revolution that first changes the middle east as we know it today.

Until the Balance of Power breaks down thats when WW3 will happen.

Since we have nukes and other deadly weapons nobody will face each other head on.

Usa, Uk, Russia, China and France which keep the balance of power through the UN. Uk and France are in downard spiral so the future balance of power will be held through Usa, Russia and China.

This does not mean war is over the countries like the USA and Russia will invade or intervene in small or weak countries but they wont face each other head on.

Name of the game in this day and age is proxy wars. Usa and Russia will try to weaken each other by indirect methods. Usa is trying to do that with China but instead of supporting various groups its using Economic Warfare to contain China and its ambitions.

The only reason why USA do not nuke Russia - is because Russia will destroy USA in retaliation. That is why Russia will spend money on nuclear arsenal, despites of bad economy.


Because without 2 leading military powers it will not be World War, just local conflict.
I am all for Russia do not take part in WW3 because we were the main victims of WW1 and WW2.
Oh LOL! We have better things to do with our time than nuke Russia. You can ask any Russian immigrant here that same question and they will answer it the same way.

As long as you leave Europe alone you are fine.

Well, it is not you or poor immigrany decides to nuke or not to nuke. Judging by how quick US leadership changes it's words and cancels the agreements - it is better to be ready to revenge.
As long as Europe do not plan another invasion to Russia they are fine. And you'd better to mind your own business. We can solve our problems with the Western part of the continent without you. You are not in Europe. You are in America.

Ah and here you are worrying about Europe invading you. You sure you don’t have that backwards...
But what happens after you leaving Europe? It could be any moment. They should be ready for real life. It would be wonderfull if you help them to build common defence system with Russia for Greater Europe from Lissabon to Vladivostok. This could end all wars on the continent forever. And you will get rid of ungrateful allies and significantly cut your military budget.

Oh, so you do have plans to invade Russia? Relax, you'd better invade Nicaragua or Lebanon. Hitler, Napoleon - they were crazy, but they have corage to invade Russia. You do not. Your level - is to invade some poor little country with dozens of your slave-countries.
