At some point down the road, a major conflict isn’t impossible—but as of Jan. 7, 2020 (and despite World War III trending on Twitter), no nations have declared war as a result of the U.S.-led killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani on Jan. 3.

Yes, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei did vow to take revenge on U.S. targets in the region, and a war between the countries is possible, but a world war is “a war engaged in by all or most of the principal nations of the world,” says Merriam-Webster. A lot would need to happen in order for this to occur.

I don't think so WWIII will be happening because if it happens so whole earth will be regret and we will be going back in 50 years in the field of Industry, education etc..

Yes and no. You see, we right now live in one of the most peaceful ages not seen since the end of the Cold War (Which wasn't actually war).

But there is a lot of tension right now with mostly rebels and terrorist organizations starting to launch massive offenses. ISIL and IS could theoretically right now take over one country out of Iraq or Syria and theoretically become a new country.

Tension between the European Union, the US, Ukraine, and Russia along with N. Korea and China having grudges against us but not showing it with guns means that, in short.

Yes, There is so much tension all over the world, Gaza, Israel, the UN, European Union, Russia, N. Korea, China, Burma, Ukraine. A mild provocation could mean all out war. Basically; not now, not this year, but sometime if a provocation occurred. All countries involved would go to war and sides would be quickly taken and WWIII would happen. Or, the end of the world as some people call it.

When the news came out that U.S. President Donald Trump had ordered the death of one of Iran’s most powerful military commanders, #WW3 started trending on TikTok and Twitter. Many of the early posts were sort of darkly funny, using the idea of a Third World War as the inspiration for a series of gloomy memes. But as the situation started to escalate, some people got scared. Turns out, that whole #WW3 thing? Not likely to happen any time soon, many experts say.

No, world war 3 isnot going to happen. As none of the other countries wants to take part in this conflict. Moreover, Iran has ended up counter strike and president Trump is just talking about adding some more restrictions to Iran. So, it is clear that both countries want peace not destruction.

There is not going to be a World War III. Don't believe everything the mainstreamnews media tells you. Iran does not want open conflict in any way with the the greatest fighting force in the history of the world (a.k.a. the United States). They will keep attacking us indirectly as they have been doing for literally years at this point. If there is going to be a World War III, I'd look a little farther East to China. They could be considered our Russia in a second Cold War.

World War III is inevitable. So far, in the span of 12 months, maybe more, Russia has been playing chicken with the United States. A few Mig's flew directly over a Navy Vessel and just recently a Russian Navy ship got way too close for comfort. I think the Russian Navy ship was trying to ram us, and the US had its guns aimed at the ship. think the only solution is the removals of President Trump and nis BFF, until recently, Vlad. Putin.* *How many other Vlad Putin's do we know of?

First of all lets just say, that when Donald Trump thinks someone is a actual monster he will go at no end to somehow kill them, if you had watched one of his interviews it indicated that he said that Irans 2nd most wealthiest/powerful person is no longer a threat to the US as he is now dead. If anything he has a dead heart and he will be the cause of WW III . So yes, I think so, and all of those people saying never use your actual brains and listen to the news.

If you ask me, I think that the path leading to World War 3 has already begun. Just like the United States Civil War, people got left out because of differing opinions (recent nodule collecting on the bottom of the ocean for rare metals and the treaty the US didn't sign). Also, today the Chinese TikTok app has been banned for nearly all military personnel, and I dont think China is going to appreciate that. Trump did not work out a way to remove economic sanctions in North Korea, and Kim Jong Un was already pretty questionable. At this point it's a mattter of time until the world goes up in the flames of another World War.

I think we are sitting, as a country, in a better position right now than we have since the late 80's and perhaps even better. The economy is on the upswing, hitting history making highs. We now have NATO paying it's part relieving the U.S. from footing the whole bill. We've cut ties where we were just pissing away Taxpayer dollars. We have better trade deals (the key to success is to sell more than you buy. Politicians, who's only goal is to line their own pockets either don't know this basic business fact or they just outright donnot care), and have the lowest unemployment numbers in modern history. A key thinkg to note here, and one you WILL NOT see in the Mainstream Media is that other countries are following suit. The peoples of Iran, China, Taiwan, ect., have seen the U.S. stand up to the bullies of the world and now they are chosing to take a stand for Freedom themselves. So, will we see WWIII in the near future? I think if it were up to the Left in our nation, they would love to see that happen and would/will do whatever they can to make that happen because they hate Donald Trump that bad. Sickening! If we were to go to war, I couldn't think of a better President to handle it than Donald J. Trump. That's my two cents. WWG1WGA

If our President does not take any more aggressive actions against Iraq and Iran, I think we're good. Problem is ... when has Donald Trump ever done anything good by not doing anything. Iran supposedly targeted the two US bases in Iraq, but even Iran said they would take no more actions. Also, military officials believe Iran could have done much worse things had they desired to... Today, I see Trump has enacted more sanctions... I hope he feels better now...

I don't think so because Iran is a very small country, besides they wouldnt make it. It's on the other side of the world if they even get near the U.S they are dead. Almost all Americans are armed besides the U.S Army. As Trump quoted "It's on iran"

Honestly it's hard to tell at this point. Many people say that it won't happen due to one assassination and obviously these people have no prior knowledge of how WW1 started. If the US responds to the recent missile attacks from Iran, which is very probable due to Trump's pride, then a war might insue between the US and Iran and it's a possibility that other countries will join in but is unlikely as not only can the economy not afford it but a nuclear holocaust is a dangerous threat that will encourage most countries to stand back and let what happens happen.
