    Hello All,

    Lets discuss future confrontations by countries in the world.

    Lets exclude conflicts between India-Chin-Pakistan.

    Here, we shall discuss about the conflicts on rest of the world.

    South Korea-North korea, US-Iran

    If we exclude India-China-Pakistan then after that most clear and visible danger of war is possible between US - Iran. This is the possible war which I think may be possible and might sure. There are very little possibility of war between US-China, China-Taiwan etc., because they know each other's power. China can't take risk to war with US as he knows that it would be suicidal for him. And if china attack on Taiwan or in other world taiwan declares himself an independent nation separated with China then China may attack on Taiwan.

    This may lead to US-China limited war.

    There is a lot of problems over in Syria at the moment. Their leader Assad is causing a lot of tension within the people. Perhaps a NATO funded rebellion will be the outcome...

    I honestly can't see proper open warfare happening anymore. The technology large countries have now is far to powerful. The only conflict I can see happening is rebellions and counter terrorism. Perhaps when we run out of fuel and water we will see open warfare between super powers.

    I think that north Korea and south Korea will break out soon; have you seen the border? If someone sneezes you will probably get shot if you flinch after and go across the line!

    Oh yeah one other thing, nearly all "super" countries have nuclear weapons,and no one will do it anyway but think about the Cuban missile crisis.

    Although Taiwan (Republic Of China) functions as an independent nation, all nations on Earth barring a dozen or so insignificant ones do not have formal diplomatic relations with ROC and do not recognize it's independence. And, as a matter of fact if Taiwan formally declares independence from PRC, then PRC is required by law to use military action to prevent it.

    In all probability the US will lower it's stance on Taiwan and eventually back off.
