Top 10 Most Likely Ways World War III Could Start

The Top Ten
1 ISIS Meltdown
2 Terrorist Attack

The One World Trade Center will most likely be the first to get hit.

Many government officials are actually prepared to go to war with terrorist societies.

3 Disease Outbreak

Kind of like the Ebola virus, or some other kind of super flu. If you have ever watched the movie "The Stand", then that's where I'm coming from. This could happen, and it did happen.

It will just take time for the government to release Black Poxs, and then we'll all be doomed.

4 Religious Slaughters
5 Country Attempts to Gain More Land

It has already begun with the annexation of Crimea in May 2014. There are crossfires every day on the border, resulting in about 30 deaths a day. The Russian forces are taking one town a day. Putin's technique of slow invasion works perfectly.

When the Russian forces reach Kiev, the UN will send its forces, resulting in a big war. This may happen this year.

It has already begun with the annexation of the Crimean Peninsula in May 2014. There are crossfires on the border daily. Russians are seizing a town daily, and Putin's method of slow invasion works perfectly. The invasion of the whole of Ukraine will shake the United Nations and start a great war.

6 Rebellion
7 Sociopathic Tyrant

This would most likely start by Trump forcing Mexico to pay for a wall or by Trump making personally insulting remarks about another country's leader.

Aka Hillary Clinton. Trump is far from a tyrant, and he isn't corrupt enough to even try to become one.

I feel like he might actually try to start a war. No one knows what he will do.

8 Multiple Genocides
9 Economy Crashes

It was the Great Depression that gave the Nazis the chance to control Germany.

10 Aggressive Rhetoric
The Contenders
11 Dissolution of a Major World Power

Some states are already capable of supporting themselves, economically or otherwise. This would more likely cause a CIVIL war than a WORLD one, though.

The US is a stabilizing force and a breadbasket to the world as well. With no US food, the US would self-destruct, and Europe would start behaving badly.

This could lead to another Imperialism age, and then a fight over land, which changes into pointless wars.

12 Country Nukes Themselves
13 Conflicts in The Middle East
14 ISIS Assumes Control Over All Muslim States in Central Asia
15 Terrorist Groups Unite
16 NATO Provokes Russia
17 Race War
18 Tensions in South China Sea
19 Famine or Drought
20 Oil Shortage
21 Nuclear Attack

If Trump bombs Toronto and Vancouver, Canadians will start doing many protests. Then Justin Trudeau and Donald Trump will get into many fights.

Quite possible in countries like Pakistan, where the government is a puppet at the hands of the army.

The crazy fat guy keeps threatening about it. Who knows, someday he might actually do it?
