Is World War III going to happen?

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.

Why did the attack on Pearl Harbor happen?

The Japanese wanted to control the Pacific and believed that since the U.S. was unprepared for war.

What advantage did the South have over the North during the Civil War?

User Avatar
It would be more nearly correct to state that the military leaders of the South were far superior to those of the North. General Winfield Scott had offered command of Union forces to Robert E. Lee, who declined because his conscience would not let him fight against his native Virginia. find my short bio below, i am david banyo from nexus showroom, i sell Enclosures, Bathroom showroom, Heating and plumbing, Fireplaces, Gas fires, Electric fires, Baths, Radiators and Toilets.. i always looking for these kind of success stories. but may the only thing is how digital canyon support all these small business and ecom running store nexus-home banyo.co.uk
