    Damn, the freaking Maya may prove right.

    It most probably will.

    No. The Cold War is, in fact, already over.

    WWIV has already begun, so the question of "stopping" it isn't really up for grabs.

    Why is it surprising to you? Wars happen all the time, we're used to them and nobody's really right to say that one won't become something global in scale.

    Re: Can we prevent WW3?

    We better figure out how to stop or get through the Second American Civil War before we start concerning ourselves with WW III. The ground work for it is already laid. The tensions are already high and building. The only two things lacking is Rebel Leadership and a trigger event. The 1860 Election of Lincoln was the trigger the firsttime, is it possible that the re-election of Obama could be the trigger this time? Maybe. While it is possible to see that the powder keg is primed and set, what event will actually light the fuse is not as clear to see.

    Over the last 4 years, Americans have purchased more military based weapons and stockpiled more ammuntion than at anytime in our history, States have openly excerted States Rights and have conflicted more and more with the Federal Government, I have heard more comments of "someone should shoot Obama" than any other previous president (actually, he is the only sitting president I have ever heard that comment about, fortunately, all of them seem to waiting for the mysterous "someone" instead of stepping forward to be that someone), Texas is openly discussing returning to an independent Republic, In the case of "Obamacare", several states have already openly stated refusal to abide by that law, large numbers of Americans have said they will violently resist attempts to enforce that law (whether they actually will or not is yet to be seen, however, while not all will, I do believe some will). Fortunately for us, Gun-Control, a definite trigger issue (if you listen to gun owners) is not likely at this time. During Clinton, two anti-government people actually carried out a terrorist attack, so far during Obama, how many have been arrested not just for anti-government rhetoric, but for actually attempting to acquire materials to carry out an attack or taking actions to initiate an attack? Hint, lot more than 2. Anti-government groups have had a huge surge in memebership and interest.

    While you may interpret these facts however you wish, to me they add up to the US being on the edge of Civil War.

    Re: Can we prevent WW3?

    Wars are, unfortunately, going to be inevitable in the existence of mankind. The reasons behind this need no explaining - human nature will cause people to always be in conflict one time or another.

    That being said, WWIII as an actual, worldwide, economy-devastating war is extremely unlikely. Some warmongering or uprising in in another country doesn't cause a war, and since WWII and WWI we've developed greatly in terms of weaponry. We, as well as many other countries, now have the power to cause a devastating nuclear war, but that power in itself is actually what keeps us from creating such wars. Basically, such powerful forces are not ones to be reckoned with. When nuclear weapons come into play, we're talking about casualties that could literally lie in the billions. The amount of devastation such force could cause is counter-productive to the intentions of war, and therefore the possibility of a WWIII occurring, while still possible, is unlikely.

    Re: Can we prevent WW3?

    Well yes but...

    that is if Iran stops its nuclear capabilities.

    but more important... much more important than Iran...


    if China doesn't get too territorial....

    Iran wont be that hard... China on the other hand ...wont be a picnic ... not at all!


    One thing at the time though.

    I'm not too sure what will happen, I hope we don't see a WWIII, in my lifetime or any, but that seems unlikely to me.

    In my opinion, WW3 began when the Carter administration betrayed and abandoned the Shah of Iran, allowing him to be overthrown and his nation overrun by a gang of Islamist savages, who have been waging war against us and against much of the civilized world ever since.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    That assumption depends on the sanity of the players involved.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    Interesting, the concept of sanity in a process that is by it's very nature insane.
