I read a recent survey that said 64% of Millennials in the UK think World War III is possible - WHY?
World War III will NEVER happen.
Too many countries trade with each other, our economies are all interdependent on each other.
Plus NATO, the EU and the UN were all set up to stop another world war from happening.
Also countries like the US and the UK have fantastic air defense so there is no way enemy planes will be able to get into US/UK airspace. The UK, USA etc also have a powerful navy so there is no way enemies ships could even look at US waters without being spotted.
Invading another country (like Hitler did) is now illegal and if an invasion did happen the EU and the UN would get involved to stop a war from breaking out.
When British cities were aerial bombed in WW2 (the Blitz); yeah that will NEVER happen again either as carpet bombing is banned.
Plus China, Russia and Iran are becoming more and more Westernized so why fight and kill if we all beat to the same drum?
Also Chemical warfare and biological warfare are also BANNED by international law; gas attacks are also prohibited by UN law. Radiological warfare is also banned by the UN.
There will be no such thing as a world war 3; that is a belief based on your fear. There will NEVER be another war like WW2 ever again. The world is way to joined together and empires are a thing of the past.
So PLEASE stop worrying
Biological weapons are banned under UN law! No country has them.

What do Millennials know. They are too busy with their heads stuck to mobiles and facebook to know any different.
The First World War was the war to end all wars and yet we had WW2. You say biological weapons,invasions and carpet bombing are all banned-what a joke. If a full blooded war is declared,do you honestly think that America would not use Napalm or cluster bombs again. The UN is as good as the League of Nations were which is totally ineffective and it should be disbanded until its given more teeth to bite with.
There are too many flash points in the world to say a world war will not start up again and you mention trade deals-forget it. America will be doing just fine selling arms at inflated prices again

Populism, as neo-nazi, will be a trigger for the WWIII. Western countries are pressed to be lead by populism which consider the tribe in a country is better than other. The desire of power has corrupted the mind of such leaders. At the end, negotiation will be failed to settle any debate and thus wars.

I'm American, co.. We know that our pres believes that Putin is smarter than all of our military and civilian policy makers. He seems to believe that Putin installed him as a to make the western world safe for Russian "businessmen" to keep world peace. tRump has never understood NATO or the EU. What he DOES know is that Vlad wants them gone or weak. I've ALWAYS believed that Russia / Putin devoted a lot of resources to the BREXIT vote. And with BREXIT there's some talk (I'm an uninformed American) about the future of Wales and Ireland. I also believe that Boris Johnson was supported by Putin / Russia for his help in weakening the UK, NATO and the EU. Russia is actually a fairly poor country that does a great job with information / disinformation as a REALLY effective weapon.
So, Russia has used tRump to control American government. (Moscow Mitch is a tool) without a missile even being threatened. Russia's damage to the EU has been done at a VERY low cost.
We're seeing WW3 now.

It's because of left wing brainwashing in schools that tells them if they don't submit to globalist communism then the end of the world will happen.

They are no different than the baby boomers who thought WW3 would happen during the 1960s. In classic Star Trek - episode 55 - Assignment Earth- the 20yo girl said, "This world needs help. Some of us wonder whether we'll still be alive to see thirty."
It was about an advanced civilisation who sent back a man taken from Earth to detonate a nuclear warhead a 104 miles above the Earth to frighten the superpowers out of the arms race.
So there you go!
It's pointless worrying about things beyond our control, but you should know that WW3 has been a Jewish agenda for over a century with a new world order planned.
The only thing that saves us is mutual distruction which even the Jews are fearful of.
You can't dominate a world reduced to ashes with an unbreathable atmosphere.

All that is redundant.
The ultimate thing which stops WWIII is the proliferation of nuclear weapons and advanced delivery systems. Russia already possesses the ability to destroy America, despite them having a superior armed forces, and vice versa.
Mutually Assured Destruction means there is nothing to be gained for any side in the war. It's why there will never be an Iraq style invasion of North Korea.
If nukes/WMDs did not exist, we'd probably have had several World Wars since 1945. WWIII would've probably broken out in the 1950s or 60s.

I like your idealism but reality says otherwise. Just because something is banned or made illegal doesn't mean that someone won't use it. As an example robbing a bank is illegal but people do rob banks. In your list you neglected to mention diminishing resources such as safe drinking water. What do you think people will do in a country when there isn't enough drinkable water? You could also look at available food for the population. Chemical and biological weapons have been used by leaders such as Assad, Saddan Hussein. The one thing you definitely have forgotten in your list is human nature itself. Then there is the rate of climate change.
Is WW 3 inevitable? It really depends on your world view and the distribution of wealth in any society. As the disparity between the haves and have - nots increases the likelihood of a conflict occurring both within a society and against another society.

Another world war is ALWAYS possible and the military arsenals and defences of USA and UK would and could not prevent an invasion, especially with nuclear, biological or chemical weapons.
