10 Countries Most Likely To Start WW3


– [Voiceover] It’s become
clear that many of you believe that World War III could
be just around the corner. But what is also clear
is that most of you can’t agree on who’s to blame. Some of you blame China. Some of you are sure
the United States will be the ones to doom us all. While others are absolutely
certain that Putin and Russia will be the ones to finally
end the world as we know it. So, to help resolve the
debate once and for all we’ve put together a list of 10 countries that are most
likely to cause World War III. So when everything goes to hell, you’ll know who to blame. Coming in at number
10 is Russia. After the Cold War, US-Russian relations
were relatively stable. In the 1990s, President
Boris Yeltsin of Russia and US President Clinton
developed a strong relationship that brought the two former
adversaries closer together. Yeltsin’s successor,
Vladimir Putin, also enjoyed a similarly
warm relationship with former US
President George Bush. The two leaders even
stood side by side during Russia’s 2005
Victory Day parade. Today however, Putin’s
fear of influence in Ukraine and Syria
is being threatened, and Putin and President
Obama are quickly becoming sworn enemies of each other. While President Putin
likely has no desire to start a third World War, recent events have pushed
Russia onto the brink of open conflict with the
United States and NATO, which as of this
video’s release, include the devastating
Syrian civil war and the Ukranian conflict. Inside Syria, Russian fighter
jets and US Predator drones often fly within
meters of each other, and Russian jet fighters
have done point blank flybys on US frigates on more
than one occasion. And to top it off, Russia’s
recent tensions with Turkey have only served to
further complicate matters. Number nine is Israel. No matter which side of the
Israeli-Palestinian debate you fall on, it cannot be denied that if a third World War
were to ever break out, there’s a high probability that
Israel would be involved it. In many ways, the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a powderkeg that
is waiting to explode. This is because Israel’s
strategic relationship with the United States
guarantees US involvement in any serious Middle
Eastern conflict. In the future, Israel could
either start or become involved in a Middle Eastern dispute
that could easily trigger it’s alliance with
the United States. From there, any local
Middle Eastern conflict could easily spiral
out of control and veer right into
a third world war. The question is, how likely is a Middle Eastern
conflict involving Israel? There’s no way to know
the answer for sure, but time will likely tell. What we do know is that
Israel’s mere existence elicits unparalleled vitriol
and hatred from its critics. We also know that dozens of terrorist organizations
around the world are dedicated to the destruction
of the state of Israel, and that Israel has been
at war with its neighbors eight times. This number will only become
larger as time goes on. Number eight is Iran. In media outlets across
the western world, Iran is often painted as an
unstable and aggressive regime that is always on the cusp of starting a war
in the Middle East. However, this portrayal does not entirely
fit with Iranian history, as the last time the country
started a war with anyone was in 1838. However, it is entirely
possible that Iran could end up in conflict
with any number of countries it competes with. These include Turkey,
Israel, and Saudi Arabia, which are Iran’s main
competitors in the Middle East. At the time of this
video’s release, Iran is currently attempting to extend its influence
into southern Iraq, which could drag
Iran into a war. Iran is also directly in
competition with Israel, in both Palestine and Lebanon, because of it’s policy of
supplying Hamas and Hezzbollah with supplies and weapons. And, as mentioned previously, any conflict involving Israel could easily drag in
the United States. However, Iran isn’t
without it’s own allies, as it’s found itself
pushed further and further into alliances with China
and Russia as time goes by, as both Russia and
China’s desire to limit US influence in the Middle East, while countering Turkey’s
ambitions in the future. Number seven is China. Many of those who’ve
been following China’s expansionist moves
in the South China Sea remain absolutely certain that if another world war
were to ever break out, China will certainly
be the cause of it. China’s policy of sudden
claims on foreign territory as well as its
artificial island program has brought China into
direct confrontation with Vietnam, South Korea,
the Philippines, and Japan. And because of heightened
tensions in the region, Vietnam has vowed
to build up its army to match the strength of
China’s, and at the same time, Japan is considering
rearming as well. On top of this, the
reintegration of Taiwan has long been a goal of Beijing, and China has threatened
invasion numerous times in order to reclaim its quote
unquote, rogue province. An invasion of Taiwan
could force a US response and quickly spiral
out of control before a peaceful
solution could be found. While an invasion of
Taiwan is not likely, China is still a
much bigger candidate for starting a global conflict
than most other nations are. Number six is North Korea. North Korea for all its bluster, makes threats towards South
Korea and the United States every year, and these
threats never amount to much. Still, Kim Jong Un and
the state of North Korea possess nuclear
weapons, hydrogen bombs, and thousands of
rocket launchers and
artillery batteries. One mistake in this tense region could trigger a
devastating conflict. North Korea also has
strong ties with Russia, as well as with China, both of which supported North
Korea during the Korean War, and continue to
support it to this day. North Korea’s direct
opposition to the United States and friendly ties with two of
the world’s major super powers could quickly escalate what would have normally
been a local Korean conflict into a global dispute. Number five is Turkey. As of this video’s release, the ongoing Syrian civil
war has brought tensions between Turkey and Russia
to a boiling point. Over the course of
just two months, Russian jets have violated
Turkish airspace numerous times, which has caused Turkey
to retaliate by destroying both a Russian drone
and a Russian Sue 24, while the two were
on combat missions in the Syrian civil war. Russia’s response has only
further escalated the crisis, as Putin has placed
sanctions on Turkey, as well as ordered an airstrike on a Turkish convoy
near the Turkish border. These developments have
brought the world closer to war because Turkey is
a member of NATO, and according to Article
V of the NATO Charter, all NATO members are obligated
to come to Turkey’s aid in the event of a conflict. Any Turkish escalation
could drag NATO, no matter how
unwilling they are, into a confrontation
with Putin’s Russia, and thanks to recent events, it seems that a showdown
between Russia and Turkey is becoming a real possibility. Number four is India. While India has remained
neutral during most conflicts, the country still has the
potential to become a catalyst for a third World War. This is because of India’s
numerous territorial disputes with China and Pakistan. To further complicate matters, India and Pakistan have been
at war four times since 1947, and have skirmished
numerous times since then. Despite the best
diplomatic efforts, India’s territorial disputes
have not been resolved, meaning that they still have
the potential to break out into an open conflict. As India continues
to expand its army and modernize its navy, the potential for
India to become embroiled in a devastating war, is only to become greater. Number three is Pakistan. Alternatively, Pakistan
could decide to, or could be forced to
pick a fight with India in the near future. Pakistan possesses
nuclear weapons which would have
devastating consequences if they were ever to be used. This possibility isn’t
that far-fetched, as Pakistan has threatened
to use its nuclear arsenal on India multiple times. However, the chances of another Pakistani-Indian
conflict remain remote, as both nations have
been at peace since 1999. Regardless though, tensions remain high along
India and Pakistan’s borders, and both nations
continue to search for ways to secure control
over their disputed regions. Number two is Syria. While President
Assad’s main goal has been to quickly
wipe out his opposition and to prevent the
Syrian civil war from escalating any further, the exact opposite has occurred. For example, President Obama
has repeatedly threatened to take decisive action
against Assad’s government because of its alleged
use of chemical weapons. And, at the same time, many in the US government
have openly called for a direct intervention
in the Syrian civil war. To counter these threats, Putin, at the invitation
of President Assad, has begun airstrikes
against the Syrian rebels in hopes of quickly
eliminating Assad’s opposition. As a result, Syria has become one of the most likely countries
to cause World War III, because the Syrian
civil war has both destabilized the Middle East, and pitted the United States
and Russia against each other. The sheer proximity of
so many major powers in this dangerous region has brought the
world closer to war than any other point
in recent history. And number one is the
United States of America. Whenever there’s a conflict
anywhere in the world, nine times out of ten the United States is
involved in some capacity. The United States maintains
hundreds of military bases that are stationed in
numerous countries, and has been at war nine times
in just the past 20 years. The United States also
has a long history of engineering coups,
overthrowing governments, and backing military
dictatorships all
around the world. Some examples of this
interventionist foreign policy include, but are not limited to, Iran in 1953, Guatemala in 1954, Congo in 1960, the Dominican Republic in 1961, South Vietnam in 1963, Brazil in 1964, Chile in 1973, Iraq in both 1992 and 2003, Syria in 2011, and finally, Ukraine in 2014. This policy of world
policing and constant warfare could easily escalate
into a world conflict. Modern geopolitics is a
delicate balance of power, and in many ways is
similar to a game of chess. The pieces move quickly, and powers can
quickly rise and fall. The fact is that the more
conflicts the US instigates, the more likely it is that
it will be responsible for starting a third World War. For more top lists

  1. Where is the LOVE ? USA are u not fet up / boring with your war with other countries in their soil.. How many people died?? As long as a country or person is trying to be the boss, trouble will follow, Humble is the only key for peace ..

  2. Wait a minute Russia only have tensions with turkey because turkey is home to AMERICAN nuclear weapons the Americans neglect to tell you that bit

  3. 10 Russia
    9 Israel
    8 Iran
    7 China
    6 North Korea
    5 Turkey
    4 India
    3 Pakistan
    2 Syria
    1 USA ( United States Of America )

  4. Of course, the US is number one. The US is always starting shit up for almost no fuckin reason. This makes me want to move to Canada, even if I have to WALK there.

  5. really at the time of this video i feel it shouldve been syria in 1st, then the US, and russia probably 3rd or 4th. No way russia is 10 thats for sure, they share to many policies like the US and are involved in to many other countries business to be #10

  6. The depiction of Vladmir Putin on the front of this video is a disgrace.
    If anything Putin is attempting to defuse world tensions .
    Rather than placing a single photo of Putin and being defamatory towards Russia place all the leaders images.
    This is the type of proganda that creates division , and gives a biased interpretation false news.

  7. Sane actors like Russia, US and China are not dumb enough to start WW3. Rogue states like NK, pakistan, Iran are more likely to ignore consequences and miscalculate.

  8. No.1 Israel, No.2 Russia, No.3 NK .
    China is the least likely to start WW3 as they have goods to sell to all over the world and WW3 would wipe out its large market.

  9. Europe (or rather Germany) have started the first two and the third world war (if we can call it that) is going to be started by Europe (not necessarily Germany but Germany will be part of equation). But don't take my word for it just wait around for another some twenty years you will see but will you understand it just as none living during the time of World War Two actually had a clue what it was until it was well under way.
    All those saying USA is going to start WW3 basically have no clue that USA was instrumental to preventing the WW# from taking place after the end of the WW2 until the collapse of communism. Just note that US non DIRECT involvement in the WW1 allowed WW2 to happen.
    Had NOT the USA become a major world power after WW2, in fact the premier world power, communism would have overran Europe and Asia and spread down to Africa and Asia right down to Australia.
    After overrunning all of Asia, Europe, Africa and Australasia, it would proceed to gobble up South American before finally overrunning USA and Canada. Yes the whole world will be communism until communism implodes.
    That would have been the end of all traditional religions replaced by the common ancient worshiping of the political/military leader as the deity in the dictatorship of the communist party leader. this we have all been seen thus already fully proven for decades in communist countries such Soviet Union, China, Cuba, Cambodia and Venezuela.
    Outside of USA, Russia, China and Europe no other single political entity (which Europe will become when Europe unite militarily) has the capability to start WW3.

  10. When china try to attack philippines

    China:your land will be mine!!

    Philippines:hhmmmm…………

    Philippines:Hey Asean give me my phone

    Philippines calling russia,india,indonesia,vietnam,thailand,Vietnam

    China:Stop! That!

    PH:AND WHY?

    CHINA:I DONT WANNA GET INVADE

    PH:HAHA NOW YOUR AFRAID OF ME?

    CHINA:YES! YES! YES!

    PH:CHINA #2 PHILIPPINES#1
    SAY THAT!

    CHINA:OK! OK! CHINA #2 PH#1

    PH:GOOD

    China:im so stupid! I dont know phil have many friends

  11. Britain will always be cursed for dividing up the subcontinent like that. Two nuclear armed states at each others throats!
    Most of the issues mentioned had some sort of british involvement;
    – China's attitude towards Hong Kong/Taiwan(opium wars, century of humiliation)
    – India and Pakistanis bloody partition, rivalry over Kashmir
    – Iranian coup 1954 which subsequently spiralled into the Iranian Revolution.(and isolation from western countries)
    The middle east is a joint British French disaster with the Sikes-Picout agreement, not to forget the creation of Israel(Balfour Declaration).

  12. Zionist plane 3 world war 2 happens same they plane for third they plans big first they target Muslims and 2nd they want war of Pakistan and India and the same time isreal attacks on arab for greater isreal I think isreal will get success but they can't reach makha and madina Afghanistan war is also be the part of thier plans but they never expected Pakistani and Afghani are too genius they come here for target nuclear arms of Pakistan but every time they failed and now they don't have choice and asking for safe leaving very soon civil war in sudia arbia on king post

  13. If the U.S. ever starts a WW3 it would because of Democrat president. Provide help in this theory look at the majority of conflicts happened under Democrat control of the office and foreign policies that filtered over to next successor.

  14. Gotta LOVE AMERICA hey world ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•

  15. ….10 countries most likely to start WW3? ………1. USA, 2. USA, 3. USA, 4. USA, 5. USA, 6. USA, 7. USA, 8. USA, 9. USA, 10. USA.

  16. Yes Pakistan not on the list Pakistan is a very peaceful nation but India doesnโ€™t want us to have a Muslim states on the Indian sub continents

  17. Phillipines and China
    Its because of illuminati planning a war between the 2 because Phillipines will reject the chip which is the mark of beast
    but Why Phillipines and China?
    Because if the US helps the Philippines so does Russia helps China and it will start a nuclear war which will wipe out Asia
    But why does illuminati wants to wipe out Asia
    Because most of the Asian countries will reject getting marked by the beast

    This is just a theory so don't panic but start building your nuclear bunker because it could come true

    And i forgot MABUHAY!!!

  18. Because of fuck wit world leaders cause trouble and no one gives a shit nukes are used by threats as if they are conventional bombs.Stop been childish cunts and sort this bullshit out.Selfish bastards will live in bunkers we all burn is that ok .We let world leaders get away with ruining this planet all their fault.

  19. World war 3 ??
    It's not possible

    But
    If it happens then in Asia
    (India, US, vietnam, Japan) vs ( chaina, korea, Pakistan)

    In Europe
    ( jarmany, Ukraine, Itally) Vs ( Russia, UK-France, England)

  20. WW3 will never happen. Any threat with WW3 is nothing more than a (pathetic) tactic of causing the other side to back down (mostly used by Russia) but it's all a big bluff. Everybody, especially the world leaders know very well what WW3 would mean, the end of civilization as we know it and them living inside nuclear bunkers for the rest of their miserable lives. They clearly don't want that. WW3 will never happen. Nuclear weapons have practically destroyed any chances of another world war to take place. That's why, other means of destroying nations have been developed. Means that are already being used today. Heavily. The most powerful of them all is the economic warfare. Which is a war that is taking place as we speak between many countries of the world. But a real, traditional war like WW2? That will never happen again. Nuclear weapons took care of that. As long as there are nuclear weapons in this world, there will never be another war between the world's major players. Very convincing argument FOR nuclear weapons, isn't it?

  21. "However North Korea is in possession of nuclear weapons"
    Me: yet North Korea can't even develop them well enough to get them 5 meters past their border, tbh, I'm surprised how there's been no deaths during its testing

  22. That nation will be Israel. Then the USA. No other nation grows crazy people like Netanyahu or trump.
    In addion, historically, most war since the crusade having been as a result of the jewish race..
    Please do not call facts antisemitism.
    " live long and prosper ".

  23. If britain/ UK never conquered lands, then there wouldnt be a WWIII. Almost every countries listed here was controlled be britain

  24. It's funny how all the hate comments get more likes and are on top….. While all the peace comments are way below…. We are doomed as a species

  25. Who wouldnt if you have usa who calls themself "god" and peek their nose whenever they can

  26. the united states starting coups in the 90s was due to the cold war and iraq was against isis (which is gone) and ukraine i dont really know
