A Third World War is Inevitable

A Third World War is Inevitable
History repeats itself, it's a never-ending loop, similar events keep on happening over and over again. This is true in wars. Winston Churchill once said in a speech "Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it".

At present there's two main threats to world peace, First is the Islamic Fundamentalists Terrorist Groups and the nations that supports them. Second is China's aggressive position in illegal annexing territories in South East Asia. Could one of these threats spark WW III?

Agree

Left Wing Damage

I think left wing's progressive damage has affected the society. And now with all those things around. I think world is going through change. And if it fails that change. It is going to call for war in a way or two. So on that note It may appear having the war.

No war will happen. There are many dangerous weapons that will not make war to happen. Religion and peace groups help too.

Agree

The threat of Islamic terrorism is very real and present through out the World. Nations need to come together and try to fight this threat which is threatening all the free thinking people and countries of the World. I dont think that Terrorism and the countries which encourage these terrorist can be the only reason for trigerring the next World War. A nation like China who wants to take over the mantle of becoming the most powerful Nation will result in a conflict which can engulf the whole World in it.

Yet do not expect any war. Maybe Christians fighting with Muslims. The terrorists are cowards. They attack even innocent people like women and vhildren

Scary

I personally think that anything can happen in the future. Though it wouldn't be too soon, but you don't know what happens when the pride of people soars all-time high. I just hope that it wouldn't happen.

The Battle of Armageddon

I believe that though nobody wants a world war but it is inevitable for the Bible itself prophesied about it. In the last days there will be wars and rumors of wars. but the most ultimate war many people are anticipating is the Battle of Armageddon. In case you don't know, The Israel builds the world's largest and most advanced underground hospital in the plain of Megiddo as anticipation in the Battle of Armageddon.

I do not think so

I think The Third World War will not happen, at least not in the similar form compared to the two previous ones, World War I and World War II. I think, however, that The Third World War is happening since the era of Cold War and fall of USSR. The form is just more subtle than two previous ones, but every day, many people die, especially in South-East Asia countries. And that is all over the news! But imagine how many more victims of this "Cold War 2" as I would call it, are out there. Politicians will never brand it and "the real" war will never escalate because politicians are promoting peace, yet they are the ones who are making the wars happen.

Truthful

I believe World War III is indeed inevitable. Sadly, due to massive globalization having small regional wars is highly unlikely to happen. Nowadays, parts of the world are a lot more engaged one to another. One small conflict might break into something bigger. I hope our leaders would be wise enough to avoid these circumstances and prevent the possible outcome.

You are absolutely right. It seems for me that the leaders in different country are on the edge of their set as to who wants to cause war first. They are always fighting over to something especially to their territories and as to who wants to rule over it.

TOTALLY DISAGREE

First of all, WAR is not inevitable. World War I was not inevitable and World War II was not inevitable. And now that we have advanced technology and can spy on wicked cruel 'I Wanna Rule the World' power-mongers a lot easier and thwart them before they can get a chance to carry out their Master Plan … WORLD WAR III BETTER NOT HAPPEN! If it does, it's not about love of country and defending freedom. It's about money! We need to find the greedy people making war for profit at the expense of other people losing their health and in some cases their lives.

maybe not inevitable

I think it is possible but I wouldn't say it is inevitable. I don't even really think it's that likely anymore just because we are a lot more educated nowadays as a population due to the presence of the internet but I would admit that even with this tool people can be coerced fairly easily into going to war for the smallest of reasons, still.

I would like to believe peace

I disagree that the third world war is bound to happen as I believe everyone learned from history. No one wins in wars, what we need to do right now is strengthen the ties between nations more so that it will never happen again. World Peace!

Not absolutely

I think that yes it is a very possible scenario with the events that are taking place , but in general we live in the most peaceful times in the human history. It is very difficult for two countries not to go at full scale war , much less likely for the whole world to go to war. Past animosities are actually dimming away and people can be more reasonable. That being said if a WW3 starts it might signal the end og humanity as we have come to know it :\ .

I sure hope not

What humanity has in it s sleeve is that we are advanced enough to have nuclear capabilities that could potentially harm or even cause death to the whole planet and that it a really high deterrent and have made countries talk to each other to patch things up. Thankfully terrorist group are not that capable enough to have nuclear capability themselves because I would think they would have the will power to cause a nuclear war and not think of the consequence.

Disagree

Is a third world war is inevitable? this is a hard question because the future is so unpredictable and we don't know what would happen these next years to come, but I do believe that a world war three is quite impossible because a lot of countries now depends on each other for economic purposes.

Wars are the worse things that happened in our history it claimed a lot of innocent souls and destroy a lot of home. I do hope there will be no world war three.

Doubt it

Ever since we have had nuclear deterrent, a third world war has been avoided. Nonetheless, there are numerous proxy wars around, where various super-powers clash with their counterparts! Just look at Ukraine, there is still a war going on there, and no one is reporting it, still soldiers die almost daily! Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan....

With the advent advance nuclear technology today and advancement in computer, artificial intelligence robotics etc. It would be catastrophic if World War 3 would happen. In my own opinion, since humans are pursuing these kind of deadly technologies. Why not spend our time in studying human nature towards the advancement of our being as a person. It is far more beneficial for the human species so that if humans have achieved its full potential as a human. Misunderstanding and fighting will not occur thus, we will have a better understanding of each other.

Yes. I hope so that everyone can do just this. But I think that this is impossible as long as greed in human hearts exists. Some people will always have the thirst to dominate and be all-powerful, rich and famous. After all, for some people, the greatest aphrodisiac is this three.

There are no victories in wars. That is the lesson everyone has to remember from the past. There is only loss of lives, suffering and PTSD.

I agree with you. Nobody wins in a war. We always dreamed of a world, wonderful and peaceful but the possibility of this dream would only happen if God himself will take the charge to reign and rule the world. We can only hope and pray that God would protect us and deliver us from any harm.

Of course there are no victories in war. As you said, people should remember this. But I guess the greed and the wish to become more powerful is what leads people into the wars and conflicts. We should stand together and try to save the Earth instead of just fighting with each others. We are all human.

I don't think Theresa is having that kind of mentality. I believe she is just stating the possibilities. We have to understand that no matter how hard we try, we can't prevent a prophecy to come to its fulfillment. Nobody wants war but we are all engage in a war without even knowing it. The ultimate war that will took place in the future is the Battle of Armageddon. We hope that we don't see that to happen.

I also hope that every country's leaders would get away from the pride that consumes their totality. Without this pride above their head, they wouldn't have a hard time dealing with problems that concern the countries.

There is a possibility. Due to the nuclear advancement and the amount of nuclear power available with the countries, a third world war is a possibility. Although, the UN and the allied nations would stop the occurence of such an event, strong political pressures and the trade wars and terrorism.

Nuclear capability is the main reason that we have not yet seen a third world war. Countries are afraid that another war means our extinction. I sure hope that this would still be the case in the future when men have the capability to travel in space and colonize new territories and planets as there would be a reason in that scenario to not care about earth.

No matter how hard we try to avoid some things to happen, we cannot avoid the things that are already established in the Bible. We can hope and pray that those prophesies would not be fulfilled in our days but we cannot reciprocate what's already written in the Bible.

There would be possibility if the government of each country or the leaders of each country can not come up to an agreement about to whose territory it belongs. But as of this moment, most leaders always come up to an agreement.

I don’t think it’s going to happen. I think regional conflicts are more the thing we see nowadays rather than any full scale global war.

War is always a threat faced by countries. There will always be war because of conflict of interest and greed. In human nature, greed exists. Greed for power, fame, money, riches, and etc. This is a tumor in every human hearts. As long as it exists, war cannot be avoided.

I think World War 3 is inevitable, especially as tensions between Russia and Capitalist states are becoming more and more strained. I also believe that if it does happen, then it will be extremely destructive, mostly due to the fact that a lot of countries have nuclear weapons which can destroy whole cities.

In terms of the terrorist threat, although it should definitely be taken seriously, I do not believe that World War 3 will begin because of it.

Third world war may or may not happen depends on how the political parties divert the resources. I have noticed that some of the resources need to be properly moved. You can see that things would be a bit different for each one of us to see things going on and off we have around.

A third World war is inevitable: We don't know if it will happens or not, not even the prophet can predict what will be going to happens. I am just hoping that it will not happen, but as what I've said we can't decide it to happenbor not, In God's Hand there is nothing impossible so lets just pray to guide us on what to do if ever it will.

I believe that there will not be a third world war anymore because it is what the bible says. World war means involvement of all the country arould the globe. And I think these days most people don't want to have the ancient chaos being on a war between other countries. So third world war is kind of impossible in today's era.

We won't know what will happen in the future and there might be possibilities that World war can repeat what has been left before. Hopefully it won't happen again most especially we are in high technology so weapons are upgraded unlike before. What can we do is pray to God that every things will not happen in the future.

When America was still lead by sane people I would say that it is not inevitable. Now that Donald Trump is the president of America and he is pursuing an isiolationalist nationalist policy for America. I think that he does this rogue regimes are allowed to thrive in the world. America is also very hostile towards China. We have to remember that China now has the biggest economy in the world. If America chooses Trump again, China may just overtake them and become the biggest economy. If you look at China's activities around the world you will realize that they are building their military capacity and setting up military bases around the world.

There will always be a chance that the world's third war might happen. In my opinion, it is because there will always be people or countries who will not be in favor in your decisions and that is normal. The least thing that we can do to avoid it from happening is to lower our pride's and respect each other's decision for the sake of humanity and peace.

I’m not the kind of person to deny the possibility for anything, but I find it highly unlikely that a third world war would happen. Like I said, while anything is still possible, I think that the age of fully-fledged wars is over—at least among developed countries, that is. Wars these days are fought by proxy. I don’t think any super power is going to be willing to go toe-to-toe because the casualties would be massive, and the consequences would far outweigh any possible reward.

I believe we live in an age where conflicts like that are settled at the table and not on the battlefield. That being said, as I had mentioned, proxy wars are still a very real issue where superpowers use developing countries to fight over land and resources.

Anything is possible. However, i don't believe there would be a third world war as that would be mutually assured annihilation. I believe the threat of nuclear weapons and the destruction that would follow would deter war and help feuding nations reach uneasy compromises

I am afraid that they may. After all, ISIS have infiltrated almost every country, and is very willing to sacrifices themselves for just to fight for their cause. They seem to be blind by the very idea of senselessness of the war and its outcome. We all lose in war. But I still pray that WW III won't come to reality.

I may agree that the 3rd world war will occur but the time is not definite and it may even happen not in my lifetime. There were talks that Korea will start the war because of the differences of the North and South but now it is clear that the risk of war in that region has vanished. There is the tussle of China and US but it is mild as of now.

Possible, sure I guess, but unlikely. The world superpowers are too afraid to start wars with each other, because nukes. Even the country(s) that come out on top would have considerable collateral damage to deal with. And worst case scenario, we all die.
