    Can we prevent WW3?

    There has been lots of warmongering and gun-waving lately in the Middle East, which could easily spiral into a new world war. Not to mention the debt crisis that we are in. Things look gloomy.
    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?

    If you mean: is it physically possible that we would not engage in another world war, the answer is, obviously, yes. But if you mean: are we very likely to avoid another world war, the answer is, just as obviously, probably not.

    The question is obviously the later.

    I would like to see us stay out of it, but we won't. Simple enough to say "Hey, we're broke. You guys do your thing, but if you decide to cross the pond we'll bomb your family's village back to the stone age." It will be a religious war between Muslims and Jews, our country has no place in that since we have both. Just once I would like to see us stay out of it.While we're at it if they start in with each other over there we need to pull all our guys out and let them go at it.

    Tech:
    As much as i agree (and you're quote made me laugh because it's true), i am doubtful we will pull out because of a war. we will keep our soldiers there so we can enter the war not because of religion, but because one side will mistakenly attack us, giving us every right to "bomb thier family's back to the stone age"

    innovating a replacement for the current imported oil transportation energy model might make the middle east situation a little less volatile. a good enough solution might also help relations with Russia and China.

    Well, we can probably stay a WW3, or prevent the middle east from spawning one. The sad truth however, is that there will always be wars and someday one of them may become something as atrocious as the past two world wars.

    I don't know if it would blow up into a legit WW 3, but it is spiraling towards escalation. Yes, we could stop it, likely our government not only won't stop it but they will encourage the dissent.

    World War 3 (if it happens) will be the end of the world as we know it because inevitably it will come down to nuclear bombs.

    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.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

    I'm astonished how quick people are to assume that a WWIII will happen.
