    Has World War III already started?

    Do you think that the world is reaching a financial state of collapse and that the advent of WWIII is the only way to resolve this issue?

    It hasn't started. Since you're calling it "World War (part) III" of a trilogy, I assume it would have to be directly connected to World Wars I and II. The only nation to come out of World War II as a winner was the US. Europe and Asia were destroyed with no money and a weak manufacturing base. The US was fine and doing well at the end. The Soviet Union had a large, but weakened army as well as a bankrupt government and destroyed lands west of Moscow. But the Soviets occupied Eastern Germany and the US occupied Western Germany. Each side set up hostile governments to the other. Thus, because the US was still "at war" with the Eastern portion of Germany, World War II between Germany and the Western allies did not officially end until 1990. The period between the end of fighting and the conclusion of peace is the essence of the "Cold War" between the US and the USSR, East Germany and their Eastern European allies. The US came out the winner in 1990 with Germany united as a commercial republic willing to allow the US a permanent military occupation of the Upper Danube. This proved to be a pyrrhic victory since the US was in social decline and its economy was severely weakened.
    So it would seem that any World War III would have the US at center stage with the world ganging up on it. Nations all over the world that host US military garrisons would like to see the American troops leave their countries. However, the stockpiles of nuclear weapons by the US and Russia make the threat of all-out world war almost impossible. Russia knows the US would consider using its nukes if the US were to start losing a conventional war against the world. More than likely, there will never be a world war like those of the past. The world may have come to grips with the fact that it does not need to fight the US for the US to decline and slip away from the global stage.

    Sir,
    In this century global political map has changed. China is a power and BRIC new bloc is about to make clout on global affairs.
    It is true, USA is a super power but her over dependence on external sources from oil, trade, funding(Chinese purchase US  bonds), weakened
    her hold.
    Multi-polar world is in making but US is again lucky that in entire Continent America , no competitor ,militarily and economically. Europe and Japan, Korea are US allies. Russia and Brazil are selling their natural resources and India and China are looking for external resources to run their economic show.
    US fundamentals are very strong , so why worry of third war? Big fish will swallow small fish,who can stop?
    If world survives at mercy of US then we do.
