World War 111

Speculation

Recently it has been speculated that WW111 could begin this year 2012.

The speculations are that with Iran’s continuing endeavourers to have nuclear weapons, Israel at some point will make a strike against one of their facilities. This Israeli attack will have been with the United States backing.

Iran would then take reprisals.

An attack on Iran would not have the same effects as a strike against Iraq or Libya; it is a whole different ball game.

Although not particularly liked, other Middle East countries would feel obliged to support them. China has already said that if attacks were made against Iran, they would take action.

With China being brought into the fight, Europe as part of NATO will support the US.

Russia, although not so committed to Iran may not so quickly join in. However there is a large Iranian ex-pat population in Armenia and other ex soviet countries surrounding Russia, so to oppose Iran would bring its own problems to Russia itself. It would therefore probably stand shoulder to shoulder with China.

India and Pakistan may use the opportunity to settle their differences and join opposing sides.

The World certainly would be at war. Almost every country would probably have to support one or other of the major players in one way or another.

Today

Today is not like 70 years ago and a war would probably be totally different from then. Continued vigilance for one of the parties going nuclear, fear would be widespread throughout the world. Those not directly involved in the war would probably take to building anti nuclear shelters in earnest.

The inevitable question would be who would win? That though would be a hard question as if one was faced with possible defeat, would it prompt them to up the stakes and go nuclear?

What, at first could appear a rational act of self defense could have repercussions to which the world has long dreaded. We must hope that cool minds prevail.

If not, then will the Mayan so called prediction for 2012, really show itself to be a true vision of the future?

      As of now I have no doubt WW111 will start this year,most people are more concerned with Hollywood gossip, if cooler heads were around we would not be in the strait of Hormuth at this very moment.

      Evil continues to grow stronger while good refuses to deal with it. War is human nature and inevitable. The longer we wait to do what we must, the worse it will be. When Iran annihalates New York of Israel, then we've waited to long. By the way, I feel our true enemy is not Iran, so much as our fake friends in Saudi Arabia and Pakastan. At least Iran is honest about where they stand. Remember where most of the 9-11 hijackers came from? Our buddies at UAE.

      There maybe another World War, but I don't think it will be with nuclear weapons or they would have been used by now.
