    So, have we learned something from the previous two world wars or will we butcher each other again? Can we get out of this mess the human way or the old fashion way?

    Hm?
    As you put it “the human way or the old fashion way” are the same thing. The human way is to use whatever weapons are available to kill and destroy. People always use the word humane to represent the finer bits of human nature. Human nature is that of conflict, mass homicide, and forced tragedies.

    There will always be those people who hold power over others that will use the power that they hold to commit ruthless acts of violence. There will also be people that will stand up to defend those that cannot defend themselves. There will be a world war three; this war will be fought in a much different way than wars have been fought in the past. If one nation were to cross the line that the United States could not ignore, our armed forces would be able to easily overcome them. In a world war multiple nations collaborate to accomplish certain goals. We have in the past, are now, and in the future will work to find diplomatic means to overcome differences between nations.

    There will come a time when a number of nations find themselves committed to destroying or conquering another nation or nations. When this time comes we will either find ourselves aligned with these nations or against them.

    That is a worth wile and lofty goal. Unfortunately it is a goal that will take a lot of time to come to fruition. We are not using oil simply because we choose to; we use oil because it is the best at what it does. Also; getting over the use of oil in a quick manner would do more to exacerbate the situation than to defuse it. Imagine taking away the main economic driver of an entire region/continent. With that kind of economic collapse a war is certain to occur.

    Like the saying goes: WW3 will be fought with bomb and guns....WW4 will be fought with sticks and stones.

    Can we prevent it?

    Yes.

    Will we prevent it?

    Unlikely.

    Our "leaders" are bound to the same human constraints of egotism and pride that we all are. It is unlikely that a consensus will be reached to prevent a global conflict. I fear that America is partially (if not fully) responsible for it due to our overwhelming military presence in places it doesn't belong. I fear that the apathy a lot of Americans show towards a growing empire is similar to apathy shown by other groups of people throughout history.

    We are always looking for the next great threat to the world, but none of us look in the mirror to see the monster looking back at us. Our threats reside in Washington DC...not Kandahar....not Tehran...not Pyongyang. Our Federal government has reached a mass that was NEVER intended. Until the people of this country realize the danger in it...we are doomed to fall in line with its decisions. Decisions that could very well lead us down the path to oblivion.
    I think that these are the quotes that you were looking for.

    "If the Third World War is fought with nuclear weapons, the fourth will be fought with bows and arrows."
    - Lord Louis Mountbatten

    "I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."
    - Albert Einstein

    You are right, of course. I meant "humane", my apologies (I am a non native English speaker). Also "piece of cake" instead of "peace of cake".

    If a man has killed many times before and is still injuring people to this day; where is the evidence that he would not commit another murder. Wars have happened throughout the entire history of humanity, it is more logical and sane to assume that world war three would occur then to assume that it would not.

    Re: Can we prevent WW3?

    If America can learn that we are not the "god-chosen" saviors of the world whose job is to "fix" everybody elses problems and wrong-doings, perhaps we can prevent a WW3.

    If America can learn to let other countries and other people live life as they chose to live it without our interference and without our influence, then perhaps we can prevent a WW3.

    If America can get back to being a much more independent entity, and let go of the idea that we can "save everybody" outside our borders we might be able to prevent a WW3.

    The trouble is we are too damn stubborn to think that others can survive and thrive without our direct "help".

    I don't think WW3 has started yet.

    I fear a preemptive, unprovoked military strike on Iran could possibly be the start of it.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I fear I'm not.

    If we were to stay out of the world and let them do as they will; world war three would have started a long time ago. And if we sit here in America like a turtle saying do as you like just leave me alone; not only is world war three certain to occur but we will not be a part of it. Now what fun would that be?

    Funny.....the world survived many thousands of years without the USofA.

    I'm pretty sure we are not "saving" the world on a daily basis.
