Default Re: The Brink of World War 3

Actually, I really don't think a WWIII is too likely. I mean the first two world wars were just kind of fights over elbow room. The world was pretty much completely settled on but everyone still wanted power. With the invention of faster transportation, everyone was feeling closer together than ever. Then finally when countries got a little territorial and power hungry, it snapped. Nope, I don't see a new world war too likely actually. All the wars go on between overpaid diplomats in UN's now. But what I do think is possible is interplanetary war I. No shit. Now that we'ver raped Earth of all its resources, when we start trying to make the jump to the moon and Mars, there will be a fight for control over who gets what share on those places. Of course that could be decades or even centuries away.
