    War is awful. But you know what else sucks? Constant tension of war, injustices done by those who need to be overthrown, and threats by politicians who deserve to be kicked in the groin.

    We won’t get into the reasons behind the U.S. invading Iraq and Afghanistan. But not doing so would’ve had major costs, too. So, war may not be the answer, but neither is allowing evil people to stay in power.

    The U.S. and the Soviet Union never went to war directly with each other. Had the U.S. nuked Moscow, you know, rained nukes on those Commies, that could’ve prevented the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in the 80s (which led to things that are still going on today), or that mess with Cuba. And if the U.S. bombed China when they became Commies, the Korean War and the Vietnam War might not have happened. Or, instead of reading my theories, you can read: What If?: The World’s Foremost Military Historians Imagine What Might Have Been, the author of which I’m sure isn’t a blogger. (Also check out Five Unfought Wars That Would Have Changed Everything, from Cracked.com.)

    But if you don’t, then here are ten wars that will happen in our lifetime (written for the humor section on Gunaxin.com, not friggin’ Time Magazine).


    1
    U.S. vs. Iran
    [​IMG]

    The Ayatollah wasn’t perfect, but the U.S. had good relations with Iran up until the 1979 revolution. Even Saddam Hussein went to war with these nuts, and the U.S. took Hussein’s side. Now we’ve got the puppet president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad building nuclear weapons, sponsoring terrorists, and daring nations to fight.

    Given an ultimatum like Bush gave to Hussein, Ahmadinejad opts for bombs to fall on Iran’s government offices, air-force bases and nuclear labs.

    The Victor: U.S.

    The Good: No more worrying about Iran nuking anyone and much less aid to terrorists for other conflicts.

    The Bad: A broken country, terrorism, anti-U.S. rhetoric from Iranians who are now free of this government, more problems and the need for another bombing campaign years later once they regroup and start threatening the U.S. again.


    2
    India vs. Pakistan

    [​IMG]

    We’ll sum up the problems between India and Pakistan in one word: Kashmir. They’ve already fought three four wars over it (1947, 1965, 1971 and 1999). More will follow. The U.S. has relations with both sides, but the Pakistanis seem to appreciate it much less than India, and are looking for an excuse to say ‘Death to America.’ Let’s say that in the next war, India uses its nuclear weapons and ‘wins’ the battle for Kashmir.

    The Victor: India.

    The Good: Nothing good will come out of this. The British created a problem that will last for the next century. Sure, had the British did it ‘right’ there would still be problems, but this is what it comes to.

    The Bad: Mass death and Pakistan will be obliterated. Then more terrorists.


    3
    Israel vs. Hezbollah

    [​IMG]

    With Lebanon as a war-zone again, the next chapter of Israel vs. Hezbollah won’t be as pretty as the first. Now that Hezbollah, a terrorist organization, is stocked with even more dangerous weapons than they had in the 2006 war (mostly supplied by Iran), Israel won’t hold anything back in Lebanon this time. In fact, as a joke, Israel will code-name this operation “Operation Excessive Force.”

    The Victor: Israel.

    The Good: Hezbollah will be crippled.

    The Bad: The real victim here are the people of Lebanon, who have suffered for years with terrorists using their home as a battleground. And though Hezbollah will be crippled, other terror organizations will pop up. There will also be more unrest in Gaza and the West Bank during the war. Lebanese and Israeli civilians will die.


    4
    North Korea vs. South Korea

    [​IMG]

    This war technically never ended, and has been in a stalemate for the past 57 years. But now we’ve got the North making nuclear weapons and Kim Jong Il threatening everyone, it’s time to put an end to this regime. Also, this is one time when the United States looks to China and says, ‘Stay the hell out of this or we’ll stop buying your knick-knacks.’

    The Victor: South Korea

    The Good: No more threats from the North and the oppressed people are free!

    The Bad: Mass death and the struggles of rebuilding the infrastructure of the North. The U.S. will tell China to fix it. But now that it’s opened, refugees will exit to China and the South, which will create challenges, as well.

    5
    Afghan Civil War

    [​IMG]

    The U.S. will eventually have to pull out, and there is about a trillion dollars worth of mineral buried in Afghanistan, a country that doesn’t have a mining culture. Forget about the Taliban, terrorism, ‘Death to America,’ and the Taliban. Though the U.S. will support the Afghan government and allies, the bad guys will win and Afghanistan will return to its post-Soviet invasion ways, but worse.

    The Victor: The warlords/drug traffickers and Taliban hired-help, who will then counterattack those who they fought with.

    The Good: Though the bad guy will win, remember that this time it’s over minerals (and the heroin trade) instead of harboring Al Qaeda. This conflict will more closely resemble African conflicts over raw materials instead of religious doctrines. With more money and weapons, the warlords won’t allow the Taliban to take back control of Afghanistan. How is this good? It’s not. But it’s better than the alternative, which is the Taliban running things.

    The Bad: Everything. Afghanistan is broken and will never return to its pre-Soviet ways. The USSR screwed up this country and they are to blame. If Russia wasn’t broken itself, it’s that country that should be fixing Afghanistan.


    6
    Iraq Civil War

    [​IMG]

    America pulls out and a Civil War eventually erupts, turning Iraq into another Iran.

    The Victor: The side the U.S. doesn’t want to win.

    The Good: The U.S. will again know if it’ll need to invade again.

    The Bad: Everything. Liberating people from an evil dictator is thankless. It creates bitter people toward those who rescued them and eventually a full-fledged enemy.


    7
    Iraq vs. Kurdistan


    [​IMG]

    Kurdish separatists gain power and the new ‘bad’ Iraq invades, unleashing the same type of hell that Saddam put these people through. Deadly gas. And not the funny kind. By the way, this conflict can be blamed on Winston Churchill’s decision not to partition Iraq.)

    The Victor: Iraq.

    The Good: It is once again established that Iraq is run by evil people. How is that good? Certainty is good. That’s all.

    The Bad: Mass death in an already unstable region. And the Kurds will somehow blame America.

    8
    U.S. vs. Iraq Part III

    [​IMG]

    Now that the bad guys run Iraq again (this time in an Iran-like regime instead of a dictator’s regime), it’s time to bomb this country again back to the stone age, much like we did in the U.S.-Iran war mentioned above.

    The Victor: U.S.

    The Good: We once again flex our muscles and kiss them while showing Iraq who is better hung. Also, this time it’s a bit cheaper because we won’t be hanging out there and trying to fix the country for once.

    The Bad: Some terrorism, anti-U.S. rhetoric from Iraqis who are now free of this government, and more problems and the need for another bombing campaign years later.


    9
    Mexican Civil War

    [​IMG]

    The drug cartel issue in Mexico is destroying the country. Though legalizing marijuana in the U.S. would drive a serious stake into the heart of the killers, American leaders would rather back massive bloodshed than cave to the economists who propose this solution (come on, like they’d even bother listening to Hippie lobbyists or anyone else).

    The Victor: The drug lords.

    The Good: Nothing.

    The Bad: Mexico is now run by criminals. The immigration issue with the United States continues to be a problem.


    10
    World War III


    10
    World War III

    Iran, Iraq, North Korea, China, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Syria, Turkey, Libya, Sudan, Burma, Zimbabwe, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Equatorial Guinea, Cuba, Venezuela (Axis) (UPDATE: Russia (may or may not ) too… They found out a bit late.)

    vs.

    United States, Israel, Japan, Taiwan, Tibet, India, Kurdistan, The United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Spain, Italy, South Korea ,Germany, Poland (Allies)

    The Victor: The Allies.

    The Good: Nothing.

    The Bad: One billion dead.

    Bonus
    The War for the Holy Land

    Well, this place has changed hands many times in the past several thousand years. I’d venture to say we haven’t seen the last battle for Jerusalem.


    So these are just assumptions please don't take them serious & i would love to see your posts

    1) Seemingly unlikely by the day.
    2) Oh hell yeah!!
    3) That is not a war between two states. Anyways, they have been at war for so long except for some lulls.
    4) 50-50. Wonder what will happen after the mad man there croaks. I think, the people there might just revolt and unify.
    5) As if there is not one right now.
    6) same as above though its under control..Once the US leaves all hell will break lose. Shia Sunni thing is pretty bad.
    7) Put Turkey in it as it has issues with the Kurds as well.
    8) Nah!!
    9) Nostradamus would have had us fought WWIII three times now. But nothing happened. I dont think it will happen.

    I am not sure what they call WW3 will happen in our Lifetime. The global war on various fronts is happening as we speak using military, politics, trade etc. If there is label of WW3 & it happens, I believe the end result be annihilation to a larger extent of human existence.

    world war 3 can be possible with the West in economic chaos and the rise of the East a big war is the only way for the west to reclaim their status.

    Any war against Koreans , Taiwanese or Japs will be a direct war against America as American troops and equipments are already there. Moreover If USA leave those allies/country it will be a big dent to its superpower status and that's last thing they would like to do.

    Yeah I agree. Alien war should be listed among 'War-List' in our lifetime. You never know from where they'll warp out to take us down! Or maybe they are already operating from their own underground White-House in Area51.... :emot158:

    If WW3 can happen, so can the Alien Invasion!

    One Possible future conflict i would put my money on would be Israel vs the mideast, the signs are all already there. in a few more years the youth population of the middle east will grow too large to control add to that the racicalization of these young men and women and the only option left for many of the ruling houses(and there are many) to keep power would be a war with Israel(America being a buddy). i see this war end badly for both sides with the combined Arab armies marching into the holy land followed by a massive Israeli nuclear strike on all Arab capitals before the amrikis have to step in to break up the brawl.

    India and Republic of Pakistan for the last time, after this Pak won't remain a country anymore( its already begun) and possibly war of the century US and China which ultimately would lead to WW3.
