The more time passes by, the more I see this world headed for another war, and it's not crazy to assume that a third world war would be the last... Look at whats happening... - You have the US in Afghanistan and Iraq fighting the "War on Terror", and havn't even caught Osama yet... and from a lot of reports it doesn't seem like this war is going to finish soon or who exactly is winning? - You then have Iran who are trying to get nuclear weapons, and for purposes which are definitely suspicous. - North Korea falls in the same boat as Iran, another country trying to or already has Nuclear Weapons, whose purposes for having them are also suspicous. - South Korea and North Korea seem to be getting more divided especially after the submarine incident. - Israel just fought Hezbollah in Lebanon, and after the recent coverage of whats happening in the West Bank (after the flotilla raid), even the UN is condemning them for blocking the west bank. Don't forget Israel is not liked by almost all it's arab neighbors, and the Iranian government has made their distate for Israel clear. - India and Pakistan have been having problems for ages, and after the Mumbai attacks from Pakistani terrorists it was clear that the issues between Pakistan and India are not resolved. -We are in the middle of one of the worst financial crisis' the world has seen since the great depression. - Even though the cold war ended 20 years ago, it's clear the US and Russia still have some differences, especially since we had Russian Spies in the US... I understand every country has spies, but the attetion this story got definitely isn't good for relations between the two. These are just off the top of my head, and I'm sure i'm forgetting other things.... or maybe i'm just being stupid, but is it really out of the question to consider we could be on the verge of another world war?
