Who Will Win World War III?

At the start of World War II, the combined economies of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan were only half the size of the United States. If for no other reason than the sheer weight of its factories and work force, America thereby held the strategic high ground.

I wish it truly were as simple as 1-2-3, but if the following three steps actually could be achieved, I think it would tilt us toward widespread peace and perhaps even save us from World War III.

A robust defense against terrorism and belligerent adversaries is clearly crucial, but U.S. military strategy can't afford to be soft against the greatest threat of all: accidental nuclear war.

The Hypersonic Arms Race Is Going Nuclear -- Take Note

Yousaf Butt | Posted 12.04.2015 | World
Yousaf Butt

A new type of high-speed arms race is heating up between the U.S., Russia and China -- and it's threatening to go nuclear. Washington had always intended the new "hypersonic boost-glide" weapons to remain purely conventional, but Russia and China seem to be pursuing nuclear variants. If the hypersonic arms race heads in a nuclear direction, Washington may be pressured to follow.

Has World War III Already Started?

The struggle with jihadism is in fact a world war with multiple front lines scattered across the world's major cities. That conclusion is inescapable. It is not the Third World War, because it has little in common with the first two. It is therefore possible to say that this is the first "World War" fought by asymmetric forces simultaneously across the globe.

How Tolerant Minds and Calm Politics Can Stop ISIS' War of Terror From Spreading

SONEPAT, India -- ISIS' manslaughter in Paris has placed on Muslims across the world the agonizing task of self-definition and self-explanation. It has placed Muslims in India in the doubly agonizing predicament of fearing a local backlash for what ISIS does as part of its global agenda. I do not believe intolerance will prevail in India. The people here are not stupid. But they live in a trapezium of wildly swinging emotions. And there, belligerents want to have their macabre fun, get their bloodied thrills.

Spiritually Rudderless

Another deep cry, followed by a shrug. The world is at war, at war, at war. But it only hurts them, the helpless ones, the anonymous poor, who absorb the bombs and bullets, who bury their children, who flee their broken countries.

As We March Closer to War

Is the only way to achieve peace in the Middle East by raising an American flag over every Arab country? War should be the last resort, but the great chessboard of the world is maneuvering against the United States, and analytically, we are wholly unprepared to go to war if our enemies unite.

Can Pope Francis Help Avoid a 'Third World War'?

ROME -- The pope is very outspoken against contemporary Christian persecutions, which he claims are worse than during antiquity. But the Holy See is also careful not to start some religious wars and asks all religious leaders to clearly condemn any use of violence in the name of God.

Imagining World War III -- In 2034

If the next world war is to happen, it will most likely be in Asia and feature a clash between the incumbent hegemon, the United States, and the principal challenger, China. The good news is China does not want war now and in the foreseeable future, primarily because Beijing knows too well that the odds are not on its side. But if we look ahead 20 years from now, in 2034, the odds will have shifted significantly.

Russian Indifference

After the Cold War, the American self-image became that of the "sole superpower." We were the only 800-pound gorilla in the world, and therefore we could do what we pleased without having to worry about any other country's ability to stop us. Russia, under Putin, is reasserting itself as the second weighty gorilla in the room.

It wasn't the mutants. It was humans that caused the Cuban Missile Crisis. Only luck saved us from nuclear war. But other than that, the new film, X-Men: First Class, gets a lot right about the historic crisis that is central to its plot.
