2016 Prediction: World War 3 Starting Point

The predictions for 2016 are not joyful, with numerous world leaders and political experts warning of the imminent World War 3 that will most likely erupt in the Middle East next year.

2016 Prediction: World War 3 Starting Point

It is yet unknown whether it will be in the first half of 2016, or in the second one. The ongoing civil war in Syria, the monstrous spread of ISIS as well as confrontations and muscle flexing between NATO, particularly the U.S., and Russia has prompted many experts to believe that we are standing at the brink of World War 3, according to Inquisitr.

With recent World War 3 fears after Turkey – a NATO member state – shot down a Russian fighter jet over its airspace, while Russia is claiming that the warplane never violated Turkish airspace, the whole world saw that the tensions in the geopolitics of our time can go from ‘moderately clam’ to ‘extremely dangerous’ in just a matter of seconds.

But that’s not the only reason why Syria is the starting point at which World War 3 could erupt. With many believing that Russia is using its military involvement in the alleged war against ISIS targets to protect its own interests in Syria – Moscow protects President Bashar al-Assad and is believed to have been targeting Syrian rebels – and the U.S. backing the Syrian rebels, many experts predict that the Syrian conflict could become a proxy war between Moscow and Washington.

But that’s only part of concerns that could lead to a global military confrontation involving millions of victims. After the terrorist attacks in Paris this November, Jordan’s King Abdullah said that “we are facing a Third World War against humanity” and that world leaders would have to cooperate to fight “interconnected threats.”

“We are facing a Third World War against humanity and this is what brings us all altogether,” Abdullah said, as reported by the Jerusalem Post. “This is a war, as I said, repeatedly within Islam and unfortunately over 100,000 Muslims have been murdered by Daesh (Islamic State) alone over the past two years, and that doesn’t also count for the atrocities like-minded groups have also done in Africa and Asia.”

ISIS and devastating consequences for the whole planet

Pope Francis has warned of another kind of World War 3, saying that instead of a global conflict fought between the world’s largest nuclear nations, it will be fought through crimes, massacres and destruction.

And then there is North Korea with its constant upgrade of nuclear weapons and threats that it is ready to launch a large-scale nuclear war against the United States. ValueWalk reported on Monday that North Korea made nuclear missiles capable of reaching the West Coast.

However, ISIS is still the biggest threat that could unleash World War 3. According to Salon, there is something different about the conflict in Syria and Iraq compared to other large-scale military conflicts such as the Korean War or the Cold War. Neither of these two wars had one of the parties hell-bent on bringing devastating consequences for the whole planet.

In case with ISIS, however, there are apocalyptic views, with ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi being obsessed with bringing the end to this world.

The article published in Salon also claims that a major battle involving bloody consequences between the Muslims and Western forces will soon become reality in the small Syrian town of Dabiq. In 2014, ISIS “fought ferociously” to hold control over the town.

However, it must be noted that World War 3 predictions at the end of the year is nothing new. In December last year, many news outlets and world leaders were predicting that the Ukrainian conflict and Russia’s aggressive moves around the Baltic states was coming to a global military conflict. But with tensions still present in Ukraine, Russia never engaged in military actions against NATO.

World War 3 – ISIS could detonate nuclear bomb in the U.S.

According to Salon, ISIS has secretly been looking into the possibility of weaponizing the bubonic plague, as well as infecting its own militants with Ebola and then sending them around the world by planes. “The possibility of a catastrophe is perhaps much greater today than in past wars,” as noted by the author of the article.

ISIS was also considering the possibility of purchasing a nuclear bomb from Pakistan, flying it over to South America and then sneaking it through “porous borders” into the U.S. And while this might seem like an impossible task for ISIS given the level of security in the U.S., ISIS notes in its propaganda magazine that such a scenario is “infinitely more possible today than it was just one year ago.”

If the Islamic State indeed manages to sneak a nuclear bomb into the U.S. and detonate it in New York City or Los Angeles, and Washington were to respond by “bombing the sh– out of them,” as said by Presidential candidate Donald Trump, ISIS would probably only strengthen its positions in the Middle East, according to the article.

Then the author of the article asks what is the solution to the war in Syria? “There isn’t a good one,” he immediately answers his own question. It was the United States and its “preemptive” invasion of Iraq that gave birth to this “mess” by destabilizing the Middle East and making a whole generation of Sunnis and Shi’ites to believe that the end is near.

And now we are dealing with the consequences of this “foreign policy blunder,” seeing no end on the horizon, according to the article.

    If you morons fight as well as you speak, write, type and/ or form sentences, we Americans have nothing to worry about.

    My only wish is if all the worlds’ political and religious leaders could come together and have just one neck – so I could strangle it to death and rid the world of all its madness!

    We all need to pray to God when we first wake up and thank Him that He has kept us alive. Then we should all learn gardening, how to plant and how to eat from that garden. Maybe some day there will not be any more oil or money to fight over, and we all have to become humble again and plant gardens and invite each other to dinner. I once cooked a Marrocan dinner for a guest and his family. He was from Kuwait. He thanked God in his language of Kuwait and my husband thanked God in Hebrew. It was so peaceful, as if time had stood still. I had dressed modestly so I would not offend anyone. I will never forget that good time we all had. I respect Moslems , Jews and Christians and Sikhs etc. I was a German christian who became a Jew, because am so ashamed for what my country did to the Jews. I wanted my 4 children to never do what the Germans did to the Jews. This was my way to be a better German. Sometimes we have to go an extra mile for peace, or many many miles. I have also gone to a mosque before with a friend. It is good to find out how other people pray. There is only one God I worship. Also if most people in the world would play music together there would not be the need for war. Music in an orchestra teaches people how to play “in tune with each other” and that creates unity. I play the violin in an orchestra. Our conductor has a father from Iran and a mother who is Jewish. He is an amazing man and does a lot of good.

    If WW3 happened, If USA things that they put their gun on should of Europe to fight against Russia or Europe power like Germany, France help USA. That will be very tricky. I do not think it will happen this way. USA should not forget WW2. Germany will not forget, will they. Geological perspective, USA in safe place but Europe……. Oh my God. Do not forget about China, India, Iran, Afganistan?

  • omar

    ISIS will be boomerang like Taliban to USA, Israel and Saudi Government. All are evils but by using media demonise Islam and Muslim world. It looks in humanistic, barbarian and cruel political decision for power politics. West or Russia no one wine but people died.

    Did ur religion teach u to calling other people as pig? Pig is a animal,so basically u are insulting people. Shame on u.
    I respect ur religion, but u don’t deserve it.

  • Kevin

    I fear for you and your future, but hope one day you may make a REALization. Not ALL Americans are bad, ditto with Muslims.Large handfuls on both sides are playing with politically laced fire and the outcome could suggest a reality check to the ENTIRE world as a WHOLE.

  • Kevin

    Seriously? Youre a prime example of ignorance. Allah brings along ISIS and Extreme~ism, Nothing more.
    Maybe a false sense of a hope. So ‘Numar’ before you ramble on with close~minded opinions, poor spelling and the fact that you mention that religions shouldn’t define humanity as a whole’ yet the word of Islam and the vision of Allah is the only road to a peaceful bliss of this world?

    Mr Thunderbolt, what in this land you speak of I ask you? Thanks be to Allah.

    “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness , to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John Chapter 1:1-14
    Numer, His name is Jesus, the Word

    China’s economy is failing, badly because of the corruption and poor leaders, their end will come soon as well. And you better think about this son, if America’s economy fails, then China is for sure going with us, because they ship so much junk over here.

  • Thunderbolt

    Its clear that you don’t get real American’s, if China did this, we would demand that China be “hit”, yes obola is weak and a muslim, and removing him would be a good thing, but you better believe we would be ready to strike back.

  • Thunderbolt

    Did you know allah is the devil? the devil wants the destruction and death. There is no “mother earth”, that’s nonsense. Jesus created this planet, He created us, and He died for us so we could have eternal life and you disgrace and bring shame on the living God by rejecting Him, and going after the devil. You need to rethink your life.

  • Thunderbolt

    Oh yeah, knew it was coming…..blame Bush, typical.

    The problem lies in the hand of USofA. This land has become disgrace to the entire planet of Mother Earth. Political mishap in government of us peoples in office have destroyed this land and the homeland of Middle East. As result was of the third time will be here soon and destroy planet and beyond. My friends it is time to ban weapons in this land. Everyday peoples are killing other people’s in this very land. Fire arm must be band throughout the land. Bomb must be bands through the land. Allah must allow this land to be land of safe way to health and happiness of the peoples of this land. Belief in Allah is key to avoid world war of the three from happenting. One world, one Muslim world of Islam is key to happiness for everyone in this land we call Mother Earth. Thanks friends.

    The proxy war in Syria escalates to include direct conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran. This will instantly spike the price of oil for the US and Russia. There will be a lot of tough rhetoric but in reality those who benefit will be filthy rich. The conflict will be kept simmering for as long as possible.

    after having america’s arse crack rubbed in its face once too many times the Chinese sink a U.S carrier in the south china sea.

    The resultant sight of it burning and sinking, along with its five thousand crew men and women, being broadcast on CNN and Fox news causes tens of thousands of furious americans riven by poverty, minimum wage jobs, racism and a oppression from a militarised police force to take to the streets demanding their Government stand down from possible nuclear armageddon.

    Washington DC, Los Angeles and New York erupts in massive civil insurrection resulting in the National Guard opening fire and shooting to death rioting Americans.

    Rogue elements in the Pentagon realising this is their moment, have President Obama forcibly removed and institute a military takeover of the United States declaring a state of war, the constitution is suspended and Martial Law is introduced along with a shoot to kill curfew on american citizens by its military….who immediately launch a full nuclear strike against China……
