|World War 3 possible scenario`s: 5/9/2013 13:12:37
The oil-producing countries up the oil-price a few more times, putting pressure on the industrialized countries, Russia extends it's power over Europe because Russia still has natural resources to sell, China and the USA enter an alliance to secure more natural resources worldwide, resulting in a chain of smaller wars whose eventual goal seems to be to just flatten any powerstucture in the resource-rich countries.
resulting in three sides: USA/China, Russia/Europe and OPEC.
Australia and India manage to largely stay out of the conflict.
countries not belonging to one of these sides are pretty much devestated.
Outcome: a new global government(a treaty at least, more like the UN) with voting representation from all three sides, other countries are gradually granted permission to speak yet usually not to vote.
