    World War 3 possible Ukraine-Russia?

    Don't know who this guy is, but he apparently thinks this conflict is going to lead to ww3 since Russia is positioning itself to control Ukraine before US exerts its influence over it. You guys think it's possible?

    No, I don't. But you'll find several here that do. They'll be the ones making comparisons between Putin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin........!

    WW III. Hardly. I doubt a shot will ever be fired. The Europeans are doing nothing about it and it isn't really any of our business. Things will eventually calm down and Crimea will be part of Russia again.

    I don't see this escalating to WW3...as long as we don't let the war addicted hawks in Congress push the President to actually thinking we need to shoot Russians over this. The Ukrainians aren't shooting Russians, other Europeans aren't shooting Russians, so we shouldn't be thinking about shooting Russians. Ultimately I think this will back fire on Putin both in the Ukraine and at home.

    What's shocking is that this was not written by the chief warmonger editorialist--charles krauthammer.

    Krauthammer's okay. War is just an extension of diplomacy, remember.

    Anyway, I guess lots of things could possibly start World War III. I would say this probably won't, though.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    So true, as war should be the end and last resort of literally failed diplomacy. The warmongers though see things differently.

    I believe it was the Swedish Ambassador on NPR today who said that Sweden, and other European nations, are convinced that this is just the beginning of a campaign on the part of Putin to stitch the Soviet Union back together and that they have reason to believe the Baltic States would probably be next. Whether or not this could be the start to WWIII depends on whether or not this true, how far Putin is willing to go to achieve the restoration of the Soviet Union, and how far everyone else is willing to go to stop it.

    I doubt i will ever see the WW3 till i die.

    WW2 happen because of Hitler.

    You can't entirely blame Hitler for WWII either. There were millions of people who put him into office, and a government full of bureaucrats and officials who enthusiastically enabled him. At any point during his rise to power they could have pulled the plug.
    Hitler didn't happen in a vacuum. He didn't seize control overnight. He was enormously popular, and he embodied the will of his people at the time.

    I do not see any leader/country today to have the balls to start the WW3.

    What's shocking is that the real moral of this story is completely missed. In 1994, the Ukraine gave up its nuclear weapons on the word of the USA and Britain that we would defend it's territorial rights.

    Now, abandoned by the feckless Obama, the Nuke-less Ukraine is low hanging fruit for the Russians to pluck.

    Is there a lesson in this? Yes there is. If you have nukes, you have territorial integrity. If you don't, you have a welcome mat on your border.

    What do you think this will guide Iran to do?

    When the Russians conducted the excursion into Georgia, the rest of the former Soviet Block Countries must have started calculating the exchange rate for their currency into Rubles.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.
