World War III

Postby Achtung Englander » Thu Feb 16, 2012 2:08 pm

Is it me but do you get a dreaded feeling that given the war cries to bomb Iran, Putin stealing an election, a hard right Republican might win in November and possible collapse of the Euro - we are actually going to make it happen.

Nope.

The Euro won't collapse, they are just preparing to boot out Greece while keeping this plan quiet to avoid Greece defaulting early.

The Republicans still might not win, even if they do they will not follow through with their more extreme policies because they will want to get re-elected.

Putin has been in power for years and hasn't started wars with the west, can't see that changing, he'd lose money.

Dinnerjacket has very little real power - it all belongs to the old beardys that never need electing - and if he attacks the west he'll have no support from the Arab nations, if Israel/USA attacks Iran they won't get support from the rest of the world. So that probably won't happen either.

That sounds like a plot from a bad Bond movie or a COD game.

Having said that, Argentina might start a war in the Falklands again, and there's talk of other SA countries giving them backup, which might bring in the USA. Could be exciting.

That won't happen either, since the Falklands war there has been a larger garrison of troops on the island and at least one sub in the area, while we've had defence cuts recently, our forces are still far more advanced than they were in the 80s while Argentina's army is pretty similar to what they had twenty years ago due to annoying things like the country going bankrupt. They are only sabre rattling because there is an election this year.

Unless we do find all that oil we're looking for, then the Americans will invade.

Falklands going bad probably won't happen for the reasons listed but I did find it annoying a few years back when the sabres were rattling in Argentina and it turned out that the US weren't supporting our claims to the islands. ..ummmm thanks for that!!! afghan, Iraq and everywhere else shithole that the US has wanted our support in.

I wouldn't worry too much about that, I think our "men in the know" knew the US stance was more a diplomatic one.

Anyway, we need a world war. There are too many humans on this planet.

I think the eyes are very much on middle east and Iran being twats and Isreal being all billy biggest boots. But that China/Japan thing has quietly bubbled away for some time now and could come to a head very quickly. Having read more about WWII recently the history between the two countries is pretty horrific.

Japan has wanted to annex China for hundreds of years, but pesky things like there being billions of them keeps getting in the way.

Japans 'Kill everything' strategy would have worked, if it wasn't for those meddling Americans.
