  • Is World War 3 coming?

    I had heard an interesting idea, can't remember where, but I figure this wouldn't be a bad place to post it.

    Are we on the verge of a World War in which the use of biological warfare will be used? I have heard that Russia I believe (and I think some other countries as well) have the means to make biological weapons with viruses that the governments have stored away.

    It probably isn't true, but it's interesting when you look at it this way:

    World War 1: Chemical warfare (e.g. mustard gas)
    World War 2: Physics warfare (the nuclear bomb)
    World War 3: Biological?


    Curious as to what the military members here think.




    Edit: Come to think of it, it may have actually been on this very forum where I read about that.
    When talking to a fool, be sure he isn't doing the same.

    Biological would be for if you merely wanted to punish a country and any offspring it produces.

    Chemical for a painful slow death w/o the collateral damage.

    Nuclear? Well, you can vaporize sections of the globe.

      I do not believe there will be a World War III. Nations declaring war on one another seems to be a thing of the past. Instead, we will have undeclared wars waged by groups that are covertly supported by governments.

        It's only in the last century that biological agents have largely ceased to be a factor in warfare. Disease and infection killed more soldiers than blades, bullets, and bombs until the development of antibiotics and modern sanitation.

            A WWIII? I don't know about that...I definitely think that it could happen, but I feel like the dissolution of the USA is much more likely. Not that I wish that to happen, by any means, but the ever widening and often unspoken divisions in politics, race, and citizenry, if left unresolved, will ultimately destroy or weaken our nation to a point of easy exploitation. Again, all theoretical, but I feel very possible considering all the fuel to the fire...I don't see it happening in the next ten years, but definitely within our (40 and under) lifetimes...sad to say .

                Scientists have had the capability to 'tweak' bacteria and viruses for several years......they can make them more/less lethal.....

                they can also make them ignore certain genetic types.....making it less likely for them to come back and haunt you.....

                also, certain groups (cough...radical Islam...cough)....DONT CARE IF THEY DIE......they WANT to die in battle with the Infidel (thats us, btw)......

                there have been rumors going around for years as to where the old Soviet Union CBRN scientists went.....as in Iran,,,,

                    I completely agree. I think we are all 10 times more likely to witness a U.S. civil war in our lifetimes than WW3.

                      Well, is there anything that can be done to avoid it?

                        Well in Star Trek:First contact they built a warp drive, which allowed a space ship to be propelled faster than the speed of light.....this attracted the attention of a near by race of humanoid aliens. These aliens contacted Earth and shared with them technology and helped to build up the structure of the planet, eliminating greed or power and uniting humanity under the guise of exploration and bettering themselves. It's all very simple....

                        WHAT?!

                        You guys were being hypothetical too!

                          We're certainly not in for the best of times. Nothing hypothetical about that.

                            Relax..........in all seriousness you are being hypothetical. A hypothesis is an educated guess based on evidence, trends and correlates multiple interactive phenomenon by offering a likely suggestion or outcome. I believe that is exactly what you are ding here?

                            Hey I'm as pestemistic as the next guy, but at the same time I'm neither paranoid nor do I reject comic relief, please take my last comment as such.
