    Is WW3 coming?

    Thought I'd just bring this up, do you think it's likely? Do you think we've actually learnt anything from the past or not?

    I wanna' say it's unlikely...but then again, I thought it was highly unlikely The Donald would be POTUS. And with aforementioned doofus currently occupying the Oval Office, I'd say whatever the chances were there of being one, they must have skyrocketed considerably since his inauguration. Russia and China are far too often fluffed up to be the latest 'boogeyman' by the Right in the U.S. (because they NEED a veritable U.S.S.R., they NEED a big, scary enemy or their scare tactics don't work, but I digress), but conceivably, since China, Russia, and the U.S. (and its allies) are pretty much the current "world powers" and would therefore be the big players in a bona fide WWIII, it could happen...not likely, but maybe, especially if Trump keeps poking hornet's nests like North Korea--and they actually, somehow, one day, are able to launch a dirty bomb that hit South Korea, or Japan, or heck the U.S. itself--and if China chose to back them...then you've got Russia, which would probably rather try and mess with our morale and unity rather than a toe-to-toe slugfest, but since Trump is practically wrapped around Putin's little finger...were other factors to align properly, a Trump-run White House (as in a White House that has never been under more incompetent management...ever) would be a tempting target if the opportunity (like, a two-front conflict involving China also taking jabs at the U.S.) ideally presented itself. Then you'd have China and Russia pretty much carving up the globe as they saw fit, probably splittin' it between them for the most part.

    So many "what if's" and "if/then" scenarios....
    No one's gonna' give you a map. You've gotta' walk your own path.

    Well that is a very reasoned approach to it all I would say, but at the same time it is still a little bit alarming. I guess it is the just the subject matter itself and it is bound to be grim when discussing it at all.
