hi . looking at the present world situation , it is possible that we may face world war III anytime. if at all this situation comes, will you support it or knowing the consequences you be against it?

I don't think so. This is the Age of Diplomacy. Even nations that had gone to war in the past think twice before going to war. Today a war between nations happens if and only if, one of them finds their security is under threat, or business is being severely hampered. Even there nations are choosing to negotiate either mutually or through the intervention of UN organs. I cannot say with certainty whether this is happening i.e. the use of the negotiating table, only with democratic nations or whether even the others are showing sufficient restraint.In all likelihood WW III is not a possibility. The so called low scale war i.e. terrorist attack is the scoourge of the last century's last three decads. This disease may continue! Even in the face of repeated terrorist attacks on our lives and property, we as Indians have shown exemplary restraint. Of course I am at a loss to decide whther this is our strong point or our weak point.

That would depend on the situation. If North Korea hits another country with a nuclear weapon, bring it on (I would think most if not all the countries would help out.) If Iran gets nuclear weapon capability and we go in for a preemptive strike, then no. If Israel once more over-reacts and kills a few hundred Palestinians for a few rockets that took a few Israeli lives, and the middle east reacts with a greater force against Israel, I would hope we could stay out their affairs as much as we can, though - are we still supplying weapons to Israel? pity. That area has no need for weapons.

world war is more complicated than how we see it on TV or movies. whether a person is against or for it, there is no telling when it comes to safety. if world war seems to exist again, it will lead to more casualties. countries will be of alliance against another group of alliance. the question here is, which big countries will fight to start a world war. let's face it, countries form alliances even if they dont need to join the war. they will join such if the superior countries ask for reinforcement. they go send soldiers to protect others' lands. the civilians do not really have a say on a war. no matter how much you protest, if the government says go to war, one can just rely on survival techniques and prayers.
