I'm not normally one for Bush Bashing (We Canucks are pretty apathetic towards all the crap that goes on with our neighbours to the south) But Jesus, World War III? Don't you think you're kind of just throwing around the term just a little, Mr. Bush?

....and, correct me if I'm wrong, wasn't at least a good portion of the world involved in the other world wars?

Instead of a "world" war, maybe the US should work on getting another civil war going.

I can easily see how this can become WWIII, only that I don't believe it is yet. If there is one or two major attacks (biological or even nuclear) against "western" targets, then I am afraid there will be things there/here that will make the movie The Siege look like disney cartoon. Racism will sky rocket, violence and if things get out of hand, Hitler will look like a saint. There are people who would not mind one bit for exterminating the whole of the Middle East if they could, and I am afraid that they might, just might manage to have a excuse to do so. the "funny" thing is that some of the arabs and ohter muslims that want such a war, believe that they can win such a war. Sad, very sad. I hope justice and peace will prevail, but if muck hit the fan, I know which side I will support.


Let's hope WWIII will never take place.

I highly doubt that at this point it could escalate to such a degree. That country is now a smoking, paste filled crater, and for all the boogy man talk that comes out of everyone in the civilized nations talking about it, I think that they're pretty much done for. ...but seriously, World War III? No, just... no. This does not qualify as it stands.

:roflol: Great .... description, TheGiantMidgit. (Edit: Gah, you removed it)

Unfortunately, Bush does seem to have gotten a bit more crazy since the 11th of September. Talking about WWIII is a very stupid thing. Is it just me or is he enjoying the war he is fighting in Iraq? :blink:

I'll put it back up... it was just too stupid, even for me...

From a PA forumer, amusing to me not only for his presentation, but for how blatantly wrong it is:

WWI

Wilson: Germany, stop being a bitch.
Germany: No. olol
Wilson: **** BLOCKED


WWII

FDR: Damnit Japan, Germany, cut it the *meep* out.
Japan: FIRE ZE MISSILES
Germany: No. olol
Truman: IN THE GONADS JAPAN. Germany, last chance.
Germany: Uh.... olol No.
Truman: Russia, do your thing.
Russia: FOR THE MOTHER LAND, BITCH.


WWIII

Bush: Guys, they attacked us.
USA: Who?
Bush: Al Qaeda
USA: Let's get 'em.
Bush: We can't.
USA: Why?
Bush: We can't find him. *mumbles something about Iraq*
USA: What?
Bush: Oil.
USA: Oh.
Bush: *bomb bomb bomb find sadam weeee*
USA: We got him!
Bush: Yay!
USA: Why are we still there?
Bush: omg WWIII
Korea: That's it, we told you to pay attention to our nuke!

not really, no.
WWI had about 6 major particpants, and about 30 secondary ones (that includes semi-independent British colonial terretories) out of about 180 nations by that time
WWII had 7 major particpants and about 50 secondary ones. [b]this one sort of fits[b]
But then again war in Korea (1950-53) had about 20 participants 4 or 5 of which can be called major ones. So it's really more like that than another World War ™

The problem with calling the war against terror WWIII is that it is not really a war, at all.

Terrorism, unlike communism, is not even an ideology, it is a crime. You can no more declare war on terror than declare war on crime. If soldiers win the war on terror, it is because they act like policemen; gathering intelligence, talking to informants, and raiding hideouts.

All you have to do to judge the importance of military might in fighting terrorism is look at how it was used to catch the Oklahoma city bombers.

The british did employ their army against IRA terrorists, with more than a little success, but they were performing police work.
