What are your opinions on a possible World War 3?
« on: January 08, 2020, 09:42:39 PM »
I know that we are all from different countries but I'm interested what everyone else thinks about the current situation in Iran right now. Especially since Iran retaliated with the death  of Soleimani by firing missles at US bases in Iraq.

However it seems tensions are colliding down since the past few days especially when trump posted this on his Instagram

And it seems like Iran doesnt really want a war and just wanted to make a point?

What do you think will happen? Will it start a nuclear winter especially since russia and china are both allies with Iran?

I think that at this point nobody really wants a war (except maybe Trump, since his approval ratings are lower than ever and war keeps presidents in power), as even those major players who are allies with Iran, such as China and Russia, have been avoiding it so far. Let's be honest, if China, Russia, or the US wanted to start WWIII, they would've done so by now. World nuclear superpowers don't need a reason/"act of aggression", they have enough political power and media control to simply make one up and run with it. There's a lot of really questionable leadership and politics in the world right now, but I think even the worst leaders have enough sanity left in them to realise that starting a "Great War" now would mean the utter desolation of their nation (Except maybe China, but I'll get there in a sec), both from within and without, as the world and citizens alike respond with a collective "yeah, nah, f**k1 that". As I said, the one exception here is China, who has the kind of terrifying power that means they could start and win a world war if they wanted to - and everyone knows it. This means that they can keep doing whatever they want without fear of outside interference, so why bother with the economic strain of a war? To them, their populace is of better use in a workforce than in a war. I do believe there is a conflict coming, but I believe it will be of the kind we are currently seeing in Hong Kong or Armenia, as general discontent with the way governments are being managed seems to be steadily rising. There won't be a "world war" as we know it, but rather a "world at war [with itself]", and though that doesn't sound like a good thing (and, it isn't), it's far better than a nuclear winter that nobody asked for. As someone from the literal other side of the world from most of this (Australian), I might be missing some politics things that are key to understanding this conflict - especially since we're pre-occupied with the south-east side of the country burning to the ground - but that's just how it seems from my perspective. I've also got this message of unity from Matthew Mercer to share, to remind us all that we are strong and that no matter what comes of all this, humanity has lived through great peril before and we will do it again.

Wow that's a very well written and thought out response, it seems to me that war is a very real possibility if there is any causalities in the american side but I do see your point that if they want war they would of started it already. I guess they just keep using proxies for there battles and we will see that happens in the next few days. It may be that the media are blowing it out of proportion and the memes are getting out of hand. I saw on Trumps recent instagram post and the comments are just full of arabic speakers trolling him lol oh well. And It's awful what's happening in Australia I hope you are safe.

Thanks. I, personally, am doing fine. The area in which I live is surprisingly lacking in fire compared to other areas in the country. As a country we seem to be getting better - a few of our worst fires are over, and it's raining in NSW now so that's helpful, but the damage the fires left will take a while to repair. I think you're right about the media and the memes. Both Trump and Iran have mentioned "peace talks" and de-escalation, even in light of the recent plane crash for which Iran seems to be at fault. All in all, we seem like we're going to dodge around the projected "world war"  :D
