a) When will it happen?
b) Who will be on what side?
c) Who will win?
There'll be no sides as everyone will be dead, and that will just round my fuckin week off. I'm at work and I hate it !!

but I reckon another big 'hot' conflict will flare up in within the next decade.
Probably involving a quasi-civil war in Pakistan or US-Israeli fighting with Iran
second - we do, eventually
north korea and china versus japan and south korea. it will take only one attack on the russian border for the west to be interested. the arab league will side with japan and russia will ally with the northern axis. we will border up, miliatrise the european borders. ance again, america will stay away, fearing the worst.
it'll last 3 years, and loads will die, but no nuclear warheads. russia will concede and ally with us, again, and north korea will be reunited with south. China... china will become a democracy. ha.
i am talking bullshit. but it'd make for a good movie
That would make a top movie !! would Will Smith or Nicholas Cage be in it ??they seem to be in every other disaster/war movie
a) in 161 days
b) the Irish will support the French (possibly)
c) Germany (on penalties)
i'd quite like us to attack the french for a bit, not that that would count.
and a bunch of pussy liberals (PLs) will run around whining that we shouldn't fight for our lives/freedom against these poor people toting nuclear bombs around with them. Due to the fragmentation of society, I deduce that these same PLs will doubtless become radicalised (Now Radicalised Pussy Liberals, or NRPLs) and pose just as much of a threat to us as the psycho religious fundies (because that's what they'll be, whoever "they'll" is) who are hammering at the gate.
The use of thermonuclear weapons is, of course, a real possibility, although depending on the enemy's economic status they may not be able to use them against us. China, however, will most likely side with them against us (the West) and of course China won't blanch at using them - much to the NRPLs delight; until they realize they're dead too. At this point, the NRPLs will seek some kind of independent amnesty with the Chinese, but because of Asshole American Rightwingers (AARs), China will be incredibly pissed off at all white people (Western white people) and probably fight just as hard against the NRPLs.
Palestine, Iran and the like will probably try to bomb the shit out of Israel, but since Israel is pretty much unfuckwithable, those Jews will kick the shit out of its enemies (probably in the space of a week). They'll soon realize that we're no real help to them and I predict will ultimately side with China, and this coalition will then go on to righteously fuck us hard.
I'm guessing that at this point, the first nukes will be launched at London (fingers crossed) and other European capitals. America, never one to choose a side until it can be sure it's on the winning one, will now place more focus on China (after probably starting the whole thing to begin with by invading Iran, Pakistan, India, Iran or Palestine), but they'll forget that this is Motherfucking China (MC), backed up by Israel (as America will have failed to offer adequate assistance during its definitive battle with Palestine), North Korea, Russia and a host of smaller states and rogue terrorist factions (said terrorist factions will be dispensed with once their usefulness is outlived), and MC will easily kick the shit out of America and us. Probably nuke New York, Washington and LA in the process. The war will last a very long time.
NB: If Israel does side with us, then I think we have a pretty good chance, but I wouldn't hold my breath. They're already straining at the leash.
China may well offer a truce (recognising the bigger economic picture), but at the cost of America as a superpower (it's already waning as I type this) and some kind of definitive action being taken in the Mid-East resulting in either the annexation of Palestine (a real possibility) or the complete and right away destruction of the theocratic regimes in Iran (hopefully) and Saudi Arabia (even more hopefully). The latter will contribute towards Americas decline; the former will establish Israel as one of the new world superpowers (and a theocratic one at that). China will doubtless keep a very close eye on Israel, and they'll probably end up going to war with each other towards the end of the greater war in general.
NB: Very real chance that America, having seen her armies decisively outfought, her economy laid waste to, and her major cities destroyed, may well decline into factionalism and, eventually, chaos.
The global population will be greatly reduced due to the fighting and general nukey-ness.
One of two ways we can go from here:
Either we'll down arms and be overcome with a mass existential crisis (similar to what happened after the bubonic plague/WWI + WWII/Cold War) and a new Renaissance will begin (a time of massive scientific, cultural and political achievement)...
...or yet more violence will be waiting just up ahead because no-one will be happy with the new borders (Country A hasn't got enough land because Country B has too much). In which case the rest of the nukes will be used and we all get truly fucked.
isreal only has a strong military because everyone else in the regions is bloody shit. belgium could take then. australia would savage them.
china has little to no power projection
america's economy is stil vast, enough to swallow britians a couple of times over, i think, and will get bigger still. china's isnt stable.
our scenario is silly. more likely; there wont be one. probably will be a couple of border wars in the middle east, MIGHT be a bit more tension between china/india, pakistani civil war that could get out of hand, shit like that, yo
a very capable military.
man-for-man possibly in the top five in the world
it would kick the fuck out of anyone who messed with it.
there's a shit formula:
- rich country bombs poor country and kills loads of civilians
- rich country troops go into poor country and faces 'minimum resistance' which it gets rid of easily
- rich country tries to 'bring stability' to poor country
- poor country can't fight rich country so uses suicide bombs and schools and kidnappings and terrorism
War's never glorious but there was something very heroic about Allied efforts of WW2. There was a clear goodie and baddie (not including the Russians). Now there isn't.
war is boring now though innit?
"too long; didn't read."
1. The inability to accept, understand or pay attention to information when not separated by a header.
2. The ability to arbitrarily read 400 small posts but not a long one.
3. A sign of ADD or lack of reading capability.
4. A very cheap response and an indication of lack of wit.
5. 90% of the time: A lie.
6. A desperate attempt at a comeback used by people who just can't think of one.
7. Usually used by people who've been torn apart verbally but want one last attempt at looking witty.
8. Total failure at #7.
7. A sign that, not only is someone too lazy and stupid to read but, clearly, too lazy and stupid to even type out four words indicating such.
9. Collect every "tl,dr" post online, and you'll have a good estimate of the number of lazy idiots on Earth, who currently have Internet access.
10. Should really be:
"Too Lazy, Don't Read."
".....I got nut'n!"
.....Therefore you suck fabulous donkey shit cock.
~ "Smart Troll" Not Used To Being Beaten:
...Right, well, as believable as that is, you've got time. Just sound the bigger words out. Now I can see why your friends say you're so "smart".
the forthcoming environmental catastrophes of this century will make a global war an unrealistic concept.
Everyone says something different.
it's nearly 2010 now, so they can't be far off.
we always do
Im not getting involved
a) when the icecaps melt opening up new territory
b) lots of different people all wanting the fishing rights
