"How World War III Starts: 5 'Sparks' That Could Set the World Ablaze."

"What might spark such a war, and how would it escalate into a global conflict? Here are five potential scenarios: none likely, but all possible. Since 1756, the modern-state system has experienced four global wars; The Seven Years War, The French Revolutionary Wars, World War I, and World War II. The longest global peace came between 1815 and 1914, and it has now been seventy years since the last world war. Every global war needs a spark. A conflict somewhere ignites the interest of more than one great power. World War I had the assassination of Franz Ferdinand; the Seven Years War had desultory fighting between the French and British along the Mississippi River. The combatants do not always appreciate that the sparks can lead to conflagrations."

Crap! And right when the liberals have our military at it's weakest in over seventy years.

World War III started in the late 1970s, under that idiot Carter, it's just that most people refuse to face the reality of it. When the Iranians attacked our embassy, and took hostages, the war was declared.
And now, here we are, over 35 years later, and people are still in denial.
I just shake my head at the ability of people to refuse facing the obvious.
