    not gonna happen ( at least not like WW2 - which didn't involve a large part of the world in actual battle )

    for a world war you would have to have two coalitions battling each other for a fair amount of time - with modern weapons you would never get to that point one side would win very quick or both sides would do so much damage that they would sue for peace quickly

    also the scale of WW2 ( and to a degree WW1 )has quickly been forgotten - in the major battles they leveled entire cities and thousands were killed daily

    A greek philosopher once said that WW3 would start off somewhere from the Middle East.

    Let's hope he was wrong.
