    israel expand to iran?
    lol you know that iran is like 100 times bigger than israel
    and between israel and iran there are iraq+jordan+syria


    probably the nearest war is going to be in the middle east with israel but it wont be a global war at all
    even if we enterd to a war with iran than the max thing that would happen is usa and europe arming israel but not sending soldiers


    but the nearest BIG global war is going to be between india and pakistan

    Re: Where will the next major war be?

    War is an abdication of human responsibility, logic, and compassion. It is the most unconscious of human actions, closer to our animal nature. For this reason, I don't believe wars can be rationally predicted until the events themselves are much closer to transpiring.

    I'm also somewhat disturbed by the tendency of some Americans to fantasize about war all the time. We're already fighting multiple useless wars, we don't need more. If people focused more on the length of the next peace cycle we would be better off.

    Lol. Yeah, I'd like to see some a white, American atheist tell a jihadist he doesn't believe in God. That wouldn't turn out well.

    Failing some precipitating economic or ecological cataclysm, I don't see any more major wars in the offing. Most definitely not between developed nations. The closest we'll ever get to theatre-wide conflict now is international terrorism.

    I think the next one will truly be a global conflict.

    As we all know, unfortunately, peace can't last forever -- it's just a fact of human existence. So, my poll today: Where will the next major war be, and who will be involved?

    There are plenty of trouble spots around, and as we all know from history, little actions can have big consequences. To my mind, there are a few probable places:


    The Middle-East: Everyone's perennial favourite, the Syria-Iran-Israel-Palestine-Egypt-Lebanon cluster**** has been tense with the Syrian Civil War, not to other provocations on all sides, like the Egyptian coup d'etat, Israeli illegal settlements, Palestinian rockets, Iranian nuclear capabilities, etc.


    South-Central Asia: Bill Clinton once said that the scariest thing he ever found out during his time in office was exactly how close India and Pakistan are to thermonuclear war. Throw in some drones, a large terrorist network, and nearby unstable Afghanistan, and this one could be a winner.


    North-Central Africa: With NATO's toppling of Libya, and France's recent invasions of Mali and the Central African Republic in a single year, combined with appalling socio-economic conditions and plenty of Christian and Islamic terrorist militias, this region could become a battleground sucking in nearby Somalia to boot.


    Korean Peninsula: The Korean War ain't over in the eyes of the North, no matter what geopolitics says. With one of the world's largest build-ups of artillery only 30 km from Seoul, North and South Korea are as tense as ever. With US military drawdowns worldwide, let's hope the North doesn't decide now's the time to strike.


    South China Sea: An absolutely ascendant China may wish to finally get rid of the thorn in its side that is Taiwan -- the only thing standing in its way is the US 7th Fleet. Let's hope it stays there, or we could have another Chinese civil war on our hands.


    Latin America: With the cartels running rampant and the Mexican government fluctuating in capabilities, causing more foreign and local deaths only miles from the American border, this hotspot could erupt if the right (wrong?) foreigners are caught up in it.





    Or, from out of the blue, Spain could invade Gibraltar, causing Britain to declare war on Madrid and seize it, starting the third installment of the British Empire -- Portugal, look out, you're next!

    What do you guys think? How will it start, who will be involved, and how will it end?
    It depends on your definition of 'Major War'. If we are talking about large scale conventional combat between states I think the only plausible examples at present are India and Pakistan and more realistically North Korea and South Korea.

    Re: Where will the next major war be?

    I think the major powers, as they have done for the past 60 years, will engage in hot wars and cold wars of varying degrees, with each other. These wars, when too hot, will always be fought by proxy in Third World developing countries.

    Certainly it will seem like the fighting countries or forces are local and irrelevant but the powers behind the training and supplying of arms will be the major powers in the world, trying to wear each other down.

    At this point, I would think the Middle Eastern countries would prefer that bin Laden or whomever, had never brought down the World Trade Center as a sign of Middle Eastern aggression in America. Suddenly that aggression ended up back in the Middle East and it's been in a state of destabilization and turmoil ever since. That is the future of future wars.

    They forgot about the forgotten war (Korea), but:

    Well that's the problem with either - both have major motivations that they care about more than they do avoiding conflict.
