Preparing for World War III, Targeting Iran There are plenty of articles in the Internet claiming that any attack on Iran will escalate and then drag the world into war. The present state of affairs prevailing doesn't indicate directly an attack on Iran. However we have to consider the fact that not all military decisions and movements are known to the world as they happen, in fact, most are not publicised. Therefore, whatever has been written on the article above cannot be dismissed as just rants of a man who has nothing better to do than speculate. Ofcourse, no one can know or predict how or when a war will start, if at all. In the context of this article, are we to feel that we are closer to a third world war?
