Ways That World War III Could Start

The Top Ten Ways That World War III Could Start

1 Isis Meltdown

The best way to trigger a disastrous war

A lot of things going on with Isis - funnyuser

In speaking of ISIS let’s help ISIS drop a bunch of water on nk

2 Terrorist Attack

That's not how World wars happen, we've been fighting terrorists for decades and still no world war.

Many government officials are actually prepared to go to war with terioest 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. And 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. - NerdyPweeps

4 Religion Slaughters

Religion is a cancer to humanity

5 Country Attempts To Gain Higher Honor/More Land
6 Rebellion

Rebellion against the corruption of our goverments europe and usa. against the rich elite who wants to wipe out the white race.

7 Trump Becomes President

You people are children "Trump is going to band and nuke people" "Trump will start WWIII by making mexico pay for a wall" Come on now making mexico pay for a wall worth only a few million, which in terms of countries is nothing will not cause a world war. Mexico isn't even powerful enough to start a world war.

This would most likely start by Trump forcing Mexico to pay for a wall or by Trump calling some country's prime minister an, ah, unkind name or something of that nature. - Turkey

Mexico doesn't have nukes.

Isn't this the same as Sociopathic Tyrant?

8 Sociopathic Tyrant

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

AKA Vladimir Putin

Donald Trump. - ThatStrangeKid42

Aka Hillary

9 Multiple genocides
10 Economy Crashes

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

The Contenders

11 North Korean invasion of South Korea

Probably need USA to attack north korea - SpencerJC

12 Offensive Statements That Will Drive A Country(ies) To Immediate And Violent Action

Anybody who goes into world-slaughtering mode due to something that was SAID is flat crazy and off their rocker.

13 Clinton Becomes President

She is so hard on causing a conflict with Russia that she's stupid enough to probably threaten Russia with nukes

14 North Korea nukes USA

The crazy fat guy keeps threatening about it. Who knows, someday he might actually do it? - jimmy12lee

Only person who might be dumb enough to start throwing his nukes at everyone (NK only got 10 nukes, ya know)

North Korea dosn't have any nukes

DPRK can't into nuking burgerland even Soviet can't into winning in proxy war (except in Vietnam) and staring contest - CerealGuy

15 Hitler Having a Secret Child

Not too likely, and even if he did have a child he/she would be at least 70 years old today, too old to be a dynamic leader.

Nope he would be about 70 now and even if he had a child so what? - pouria_mt

16 Russian invasion of Ukraine

It has already began with the annexation of Crimea in May 2014, there are crossfires everyday on the border resulting in about 30 deaths a day and the Russian forces are taking 1 town a day, Putin's technique of slow invasion works perfectly when the Russian forces will reach Kiev, the UN will send its forces resulting in a big war. This may happen this Year - yatharthb

It has already began by the annexation of the Crimean Peninsula in May 2014, and 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 whole of Ukraine will shake the United nations and start a great war. - yatharthb

It's actually happened so I think it could cause war.

America don't have the balls to fight Russia, can only fight afgans riding donkeys. So this will never lead to WW3.

17 China and Pakistan attack India and Japan

I don't think anyone would care if India goes down but if Japan is the target then maybe that would be hard on The US. Anyway, if China and Pakistan try to do something we know this is going to end bad for the entire world cause of the nuclear capabilities of these three nations. India would also be completely wiped off the continent no doubt about it if those two join hands, which they already are as we speak.

One of the most probable war scenarios in Asia. China keeps entering territories of Japan and India, apart from other countries. Pakistan and China are friends. Pakistan is known for such activities as well. - jimmy12lee

More or less just india v pakistan - Gud_Spud

This will happen one day, pakistan attacked uri at India, while india tries to shut indus river as a return gift, cHina threatens india to not do so

18 The United States All Split Apart

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 them a fight over land, which changes to pointless wars. - Turkeyasylum

Could be a good thing.

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

19 Conflicts In The Middle East
20 Overconfident China Comes Face-To-Face With USA

So what's the scenerio here? China decides to attack the US for whatever reason? I don't think China is stupid to fight with the usa. If anyone's gonna nuke us like idiots, it will be Kim jong un.

Overconfidence is one of the main reasons behind wars. China is overconfident, ambitious, war-monging, and considers themselves invincible. - jimmy12lee

21 All the terrorist groups unite to become the World Terrors
22 NATO amassing troops on the Estonian, Belarus and Ukrainian borders bordering Russia forcing Russia to retaliate in the same way.
23 Jake Paul Becomes President
24 Israel targeting another country after Palestine
25 People Fight Over the Water In Canada

People don't fight in Canada. - Blight

Umm why would they foght for water when they have like tons of water! - P-51IsDaBest

26 Race War
27 China Nukes America

I don't think china will destroy america happend - SpencerJC

37 Militants get their hands on Nuclear weapons

Quite possible in countries like Pakistan, where the government is a puppet at the hands of the army. - jimmy12lee

38 ISIS acquiring control over all Muslim States in Central Asia

That would be catastrophic

Shouldn't be too difficult. - jimmy12lee

39 Unusually Dangerous Natural Disasters

Not only will man destroy the earth, nature will too
