Has World War III begun and we just don't realize it yet? (1 Viewer)

World War:

"a war engaged in by all or most of the principal nations of the world"

Terrorists know they will never win a conventional war with troops on each side in a specific country or region as a battleground.

They have declared war on the west and many nations specifically.

Very few countries seem to be immune from Islamic Terrorists on their home soil.


-a lone gunman in Canada

-a coffee shop hostage situation in Australia


-London bus bombings

-Madrid train bombings

-Boko Haram dudes in Africa


-Philippines have lots of activity

Not to mention the many, many foiled terrorist threats all across the world.

These countries may not be sending planes and tanks to a battlefield but they are having to combat domestic terrorism with intelligence and eventual police/military force when dealing with a specific incident.

This is the type of war they can fight and have been fighting for decades.

This is the type of war, it seems like has become a reality for us and many nations going forward.

So, has the new WW3 begun or are all these terrorist attacks just incidents that may bring on a military conflict in another country for a short period of time?


There will never be a World War III. There might someday be a nuclear exchange (let's hope not) but never a war like the first two.

Well, you kind of answered your own question.

Individual countries trying to protect themselves from terrorism does not a world war make.

Which isn't to say it's not a huge issue. Like you said, there is no army or country to attack. It's thousands of small separate groups housed all over the world.

  1. No, because there is no unified position against a common aggressor. In talk, yes, but in practice and execution, no.
