Eh, was reading both the financial apocolypse and water wars threads over in current affairs earlier. Just got my mind turning and twisting. Given todays global political situation, the global fincancial and resource situation and the rise of terrorism, do we see world war three as a feasible scenario? Is it likely that instability in certain regions of political distrust could result in yet another international barmy? If so, how exactly would such a thing unfold? Times are different now with cyber-warfare a very important aspect of intelligence gathering and we all seem to be a bit skint apart from those in the far East. Nuclear weaponry doesn't seem to be all too likely a use but is it unwise to consider that nations wouldn't resort to using nuclear arms in order to protect themselves? So who's our most likely proponents? The USA seems to be slowly dying out as a superpower and China is militarising itself as quickly as it can whilst also growing as a financial and productive super-power. Tensions in the Middle East and North Africa are high amongst Muslims and young Arabs as they demand certain political freedoms and strive to improve on their situations. Then you've got Western interests in Gulf oil thrown in there too. Any thoughts? Or can nobody be arsed to consider it?
