Do you think WWIII will happen during your lifetime?

Do you think it will reach American soil ever? Do you think it is possible for another country to come to our land and invade us?

    i dont think it will ever be called ww3, i think it will just be lots of little personal wars like we're doing now, just plus some more. it wont be like the axis v allies. too many countries have nuclear weapons now, and if all the "bad guys" get together with their bombs, we can't have all the "good guys" getting together with theirs or else we'll just kill everyone in one shot. i think military personel like the whole "search and destroy" a little too much for that now. my step bro was in iraq and afganastan for 2 tours, and he got to fly little remote control planes that bomb things. he was like a kid with a remote control plane. THATS what war is coming too. everything is automated.

    as for it being on american soil, i think we'll shoot down anything that gets too close. we might get a few missiles from china or something like that, but thats just gonna hit california, and really, they can use a new start over there anyways. lol.

    sorry. that was rude. but i live 20 miles outside of DC. if they get hit by any nuke, i'm gone too.

    In all of recorded history no country has been able to stay in power indefinitely. I am sure the United States is no exception. I believe it will fall from within. There is no need for a foreign invader when we are doing such a good job of destroying each other. Falling from within is how Rome fell. It was caused by the slow but sure loss of morals, much like the United States today.

    If there is WWIII it is most likely to be started from the Middle East. The West has already demonstrated restraint in the use of nuclear weapons. Iran has sworn to use them when they have them. Israel will be Iran’s first target. When that bomb goes off Iran will disappear in a cloud of radio active dust. Will that start WWIII your guess is as good as mine.

    Prepare for the worst, hope for the best. I'm not afraid of being attacked from the outside, I'm afraid of the US's inevitable downfall for not taking care of our own. Numerous health and social services programs have been cut to fund this war. As long as the average American citizen stays weak, the government (not only ours, but other's as well) can invade. We need to show some good old-fashioned American values and put more emphasis on community here, in our towns. WWIII will come in it's own time, will you be ready is the real question.

    Other than Iraq and some of the other sand monkeys, I would hope that the rest of this planet has better sence than to "Push The Button". If anyone does and the worlds superpowers start pushing buttons, I will tell you this much. You can just stick your head between the legs and kiss your rearend goodbuy. Noone will survive it if it's a world war, and those that do will die from radiation poisioning shortly thereafter. I am not going to say yes or no to weither or not that I think it will happen. What I think is going to happen really doesn't matter, now does it. We can only pray that it doesn't.

    Source(s): No source. Just a personal view.

    WWIII has already come and gone, depending on who you ask. According to some, Afghanistan/Iraq is WW4 or 5, with international conflicts as Bosnia-Herzigovina and Ethiopia/Sudan coming before. A "World War" would contain contingents from at least three continents (your pick of Europe, Austraila, Asia, North and South America, and Africa) involved in the theater.

    To be honest, as an 18 12 months previous, confident that's. I say this by way of fact all my existence i replace into raised to believe that the worldwide replace into acceptable, chrome pipes and peace invariably and ever. Then 911 surpassed off, then the conflict in Iraq, the 2004 election, escalation in Iraq, the Democratic victory for the living house and Senate in 2006, gazing the march on the pentagon of 2007 on youtube and seeing hundreds of youthful activists (and there have been extremely some!), being yelled at and insulted via professional-conflict demonstrators for exercising their rights of unfastened speech and being waiting to hold at the same time peacefully. Then the economic device worsened, and that i witnessed gas costs attain checklist highs, as nicely as seeing for the 1st time a deeply divided and polarized u . s . a .. The Jena 6 in Louisiana proved to me that rascism wasn't a venture in background books, as nicely by way of fact the Russian invasion of Georgia. the present presidential race with Obama and McCain is via a techniques between the main historic presidential election as much as now. i'm sorry i did not incredibly answer your question, yet from the attitude of a youthful person, confident, the cases we now discover ourselves are very exciting to me. i'm curious as to how this all unfolds, yet I dread it on a similar time. Peace!

  • Usually people use the term WWIII to refer to a full-scale nuclear exchange, or at the very least a nuclear attack.

    I hope not to see it in my lifetime. I fear it's possible, maybe even likely within the next ten years - yes, in a US city.

    I REALLY hope I'm wrong.

    the term World War means that the entire world is the batten ground.. The war on terror has taken the world to almost even country so far. So yes I do belive that we will see an esculation of this war to the point of the inclusion of the entire world

    war is caused by economic reasons and with earth's natural resources set to deplete in the next 50 years or so, i'd say that there is a good chance of a ww3 happening around that time...

    It has already happened. Sept. 11, 2001 was the beginning of World War 3.
