Will there ever be a World War 3? That’s a trillion dollar question everyone has been asking, and not many believe there would be one. If you’re looking at a World War 3 as an extension of World War 2, then obviously it would not happen simply because it would involve the unleashing of nuclear weapons at a grand scale. The world will be destroyed.


This may sound bizarre but one of the reasons why a “real” World War 3 hasn’t started despite the availability of WMD (weapon of mass destruction) is because such weapons are being controlled and guarded so that extreme Islamic countries do not possess them. The only Islamic country that has nuclear weapons is Pakistan, which happens to be a controlled-ally of the U.S.

Turkey-Russia Nuclear War

There’s no telling what would have had happened to humankind if extreme Islamic countries such as Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran or even Saudi Arabia had nuclear weapons before the 1990 Gulf War. Yes, although Saudi has been the U.S. closest Muslim brother for decades, the Americans still do not trust the Saudi with such toy. It was the same case with Iran-Russia brotherhood.


China allows North Korea to play with nuclear weapons because like the case of Pakistan, they have enough check and balance, or at least they thought so, ensuring Kim Jong-un doesn’t throw the hamburger at South Korea without the Chinese knowing it. Mr. Kim may be a crazy dictator but he isn’t an extremist who would commit Armageddon in the name of God.

North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un’s Nuclear Threat

United States, Russia and China are the 3 countries with the largest arsenal of nuclear weapons. But they keep them for check and balance purposes, not to attack each others. Despite Putin’s threat of using nuclear weapon on NATO after the Turkish air force downed a Russian Su-24 bomber jet over the Turkish-Syrian border last November, it was actually a bluff.


As a great poker player, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s bluff always works. It worked on Turkey then and it works on the U.S. now in the Syrian Civil War. U.S. Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley may sound deadly serious when he warned that the United States was ready to “destroy” its enemies – including Russia, Iran, China and North Korea.

In reality, however, General Mark Milley was merely barking with zero intention of going into a full-fledged war with the enemies he had warned. And the Russians and Chinese knew about the bluff. General Milley merely voiced his frustration not because Russia or Chinese dares to start a nuclear war, but because he was angered Obama sucks at poker table.


To make it more dramatic, Putin instructed a nationwide emergency drill that will war-game “evacuation” procedures during a national crisis. It involves a staggering 40 million Russians from all levels of government, which runs from October 4th – 7th. Moscow deliberately tells all and sundry they did the exercise due to U.S.’ warning that Russian cities could suffer terrorist attacks.


After Putin brilliantly deployed S-300V4 Gladiator advanced anti-missile and anti-aircraft system to Syria to protect the Russian naval base along Syria’s Mediterranean coastal city of Tartus, it’s unlikely the U.S. military dares sending vulnerable fighter jets, let alone launching cruise missiles into Syria to destroy Russian assets. The U.S. blinks first; therefore, they’ve lost the battle.


However, the war in the Middle East is far from over. As for the “Battle of Aleppo”, Washington will most likely feed, support, sponsor and train the al-Nusra Front – an Al-Qaeda-linked violent jihadist group – to fight the Syrians and Russians on their behalf. Keeping the war going in the region is in the interests of the US and its allies in the region, especially Israel and Saudi Arabia.


But Syrian Civil War is not the only war that the U.S. is looking at. The next bigger war could be cooking and ready to be unleashed. Forget about the Syrian War. From the moment Vladimir Putin accepted Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s invitation to the war, Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama has lost the “overthrow Assad” game.


The war that is on the horizon could be a war between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Described as “one of the largest of its kind”, the “Gulf Shield 1 Military Drills” in the Persian Gulf, the Gulf of Oman and the Strait of Hormuz by the Royal Saudi Navy 2 days ago was seen by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards as a provocation for a war.


The exercises involved units of the Royal Saudi Navy Forces of Eastern Fleet, including warships, naval aircraft and special security naval units. Of course, the Iranian government isn’t thrilled with the drills as it happened too close to its own waters, as if the Saudis were making preparation to invade Iran. U.S. could be the architect of the Saudi’s drills to test Iran’s response.


It makes perfect sense for the U.S. to put Saudi and Iran to a war. Sunni-dominated Saudi Arabia and Shia-dominated Iran – which lie on opposite sides of the Gulf – severed diplomatic relations earlier this year and back opposing sides in the civil wars in Syria and Yemen. Iran has also had a number of “dangerous encounters” with U.S. Navy vessels in the Persian Gulf in recent months.


In the past, Iran has threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz during periods of tension with Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab allies. As crude oil prices stay stubbornly low, a war with Iran could divert attention from Saudi’s economic problems. A Saudi-Iran war will definitely send oil prices skyrocket, considering 17 million barrels per day, or 30% of oil shipped by sea, passed through the Strait of Hormuz.


Syrian Civil War isn’t the only proxy war for Iran in the region. Tensions between Iran and Saudi also involve conflict in Yemen. Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen launched 4 rockets which hit and nearly sank a United Arab Emirates auxiliary ship last Saturday. Immediately, the U.S. Navy dispatched 3 warships near the southern coast of Yemen after the attacks.



Iran still holds a grudge against Saudi Arabia over 2015’s pilgrimage stampede in Mina, just outside of Mecca, where more than 2,400 people – more than 460 Iranians – were killed and Iran has blamed the Saudi royal family. Then, there was Saudi’s cleric who called Iran’s leaders as “sons of Magus” and Iran retaliated by accusing Saudi as cannot be trusted with custodianship of the Holy Places of Islam.


Mr. Obama’s policy of not committing American ground forces to war in the Middle East is likely to be continued under Clinton administration if Hillary wins the coming 2016 Presidential Election in November. Essentially, this means Saudi Arabia and its Arab brothers will have no choice but to put boots on the ground.


If the present hostile Iran regime could be neutralized, the U.S. could install a puppet government who would do its errands. A weakened Iran would mean a victory to Saudi who has been expanding its Sunni Islamic beliefs. Coincidently, the U.S. can afford to start another war in the Middle East because both Saudi and Iran do not possess nuclear weapons.


Most likely the Russians would be invited by the Iranians, the same way Syrians did, to participate in a Saudi-Iran War, which could spark a non-nuclear World War 3. But that’s only true if the Americans and Russians do not start killing each other directly. Still, a Saudi-Iran War could be over on the same day it starts if the powerful Russian and Iranian Navies close the Strait of Hormuz.
