World War I and II are futile to the might-be incoming war, the third World War.
You might laugh this time, but it will happen. Due to the recent events of the 21st century, it will happen. Some of the events are: 9/11, Sabah crisis, and N.K.'s declaration of war. So be prepared. I think it would be a nuclear war. But cyber warfare is more likely than the former.

unless you assume that the security company itself is the terrorist


Well, if the company is compromised, yes.

I think it is slightly far fetched, that a terrorist organization will actually be able to procure advanced/experimental weaponry and start an international miscommunication, leading to war. There's quite a fair bit of counter-terrorism activity going on under the radar. You could say that the number of failed threats that are reported in the media is just the tip of the iceberg; we would not be able to sleep soundly if we were more in the know! Counter-terrorist measures in the Great Powers (I'm assuming you were referring to such nations as targets) are to put, rather strong.

I would also think that nations are ultimately, cool-headed and rational enough to clear up any doubts, and to clarify that the supposed attacking nation actually did order the attack before taking up appropriate measures. And even then, presuming they still cannot get to the bottom of the truth, the rest of the world is still too wary to rush headlong into a murky fight.

I think too, that the point that terrorist organizations would like to claim successful attacks as their own work is rather valid. I forgot who mentioned it, but most contemporary terrorist groups (that we know of), like to stay visible. You can't spread terror without having a face/front, and by claiming success, especially a spectacular one, groups will receive even more support, or achieve their objectives further by sowing terror actively.

It's a nice theory for its insidious and ''blockbuster-like'' nature, but I think the odds of that happening are almost nil!

How is a mere international terrorist group going to be able to bypass sophisticated intel of a country (like America) and end up tricking said country with a tactic so outdated it has received equal effectiveness as the Trojan Horse tactic?


Hey, not all countries have the so-called sophisticated intel.

I assume that globally most intel services are good enough to uncover a crude tactic like that. Also as there would be more than one country involved and I'm sure there is a certain amount of international exchange between intel services, it would likely be more difficult than one may think.

Yes, but that wouldn't actually lead to a large scale conflagration since the nations involved aren't at the centre of world affairs.

I did that because I don't want to argue with you.

It isn't arguing, it's debating. Big difference.

I think it is safe to say that any country with such obsolete intel would be in no position to start the next World War if said hypothetical even did happen.

I agree with this, it is pretty impossible if one such country such as mine is strong enough to raise an armyto make war

I think it's an interesting topic to ponder over....don't be discouraged Roy. It's not a win-lose situation.

No one actually believed WWI would happen, or when it did happen, that it would be so massive and long, but it just did. And no one believed WWII would happen after the suffering from WWI.

So who knows? Maybe everything we're dismissing now will be looked back upon half a century later as blithely ignorant predictions.

I have not read the whole thing and probably leave this for those other intellectuals out there. Back in wwI we always looked at previous wars that had out dated technology and tatics that were made absolute by the technology. In order to know for WW 3 we can not look to far into the past. But at the present, with Russia invading Ukraine and at least 3 civil wars precedent. It is Have a good sleep. I won't leave her for you.easy to believe that it is soon. The most likely cause however is gonna be the same reason as WW 3. Territory, the Germans believed the land they were annexing along were necessary. And with the attitude of Russsia it is easy to believe it is gonna be from them. But more likely it will be from China with Taiwan being independent country and China along with other communistic countries thinking that it's a state of China just with a different system. Not acknowledging the seventh naval fleet of America this would be an opportunity a nut job could take to their advantage. Drawing countries into a dispute into what territory should be theirs leading into a non-nuclear Third World War.

Good god Nicho, if it had lasted that long it would have lasted like 160 years. That's what, 3-4 generations of people fighting?
