3rd world war
Started by: roylew (2145) Report abuse
It will happen...it maybe a long way off..or will it....and how will it be initiated....not a nice subject I know

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (1552) Report abuse
It won't happen because it would be a MAD affair

M.A.D. is short for Mutually. Assured. Destruction.

It will not need to be a WORLD war, as it will only take two nuclear protagonists to annihilate all and sundry.

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

I remember watching this when it was first shown in the early 1980's when a nooclear war with the Soviet Yoonion was a distinct possibility

In the event of 'nooclear' war. The instructions are. "Put your head between your legs and kiss your arse goodbye"

1962: was ont telly yesterday, how Kennedy had to withstand the urging from McNamara and the military top brass to launch a nuclear attack on Soviet Union.

One thing for sure, is that one side will be the USA.

Posted by: roylew (2145) Report abuse
Not withstanding USA and Russia again...and all that's going on in the Middle East...I think the European Union will implode again at some stage

Posted by: priscus (5890) Report abuse
The (almost global) ascendancy of the Ultra-Right, their determination to engage in a renewed arms race, and the inevitable falling out amongst themselves as a result of their bids for unfettered Kleptocracy does not bode well.

The initiating country will likely be one that elects a leader with strange beliefs and a lack of care & compassion for fellow human beings.

Posted by: spiderwoman (828) Report abuse
Yes, and I think it will be sooner than people think, maybe later this year. I agree, one of the participants (probably initiator)is likely to be USA...

Is there another hitler out there then in Europe

Posted by: aussie94 (1557) Report abuse
Glad we are a long way from the chaos in Europe and America

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (1552) Report abuse
There is a bit of chaos in Europe, but no chaos in America

Well apart from this CHAP

Posted by: roylew (2145) Report abuse
I have never felt European....I used to work for GE and had plenty of meetings in Europe with French Dutch Belgians Italians Spanish Portugese etc and always felt like an outsider amongst these people..perhaps one exception were the ...the others always seemed to have a common culture which I felt we don't share

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (1552) Report abuse

Lightnings had a tremendous power to weight ratio of greater than one to one, they could take off and climb vertically and go supersonic whilst climbing vertically

Only thing was that to do that, they had to use afterburners, which meant that they ran out of fuel in less than ten minutes

i used to think that the goverment and veterNS would go to war trump is trying to help the vets hope so

Posted by: priscus (5890) Report abuse
Just watched the Porton Down programme ont telly.

Very surprised how close we had come to MAD in WW2.

Knew about the anthrax experiment, but only learned by this programme that the Anthrax bomb was actually produced. Not used, but questionably that is more by luck than by judgement.

That would have annihilated the population of Central Europe, both friend and foe.

The Nazi would probably have retaliated with Sarin, which at the time the allies knew nothing about.

So, that in turn would have annihilated the UK.

Section 8 ..speaks about America but not about the paranoid nutter in North Korea.. testing missiles and knocking off family members ever other week.

Old suction8 a treacherous, bigoted lefty.

Posted by: section 8 (2873)  Report abuse
Hahaha

Did you know that the N.Korean world population percentage is rising. At current rates what will it be in 50 or 100 years?

We'll all be bowing to our new leader Kim.

Jay. "You clearly hate Brits and Americans. You are a racist"


And you call me thick with comments like that. :D

Americans and British are not races.


Which race am I actually racist towards?

Be more accurate in your petty name calling.
