Growing up I heard more than once that there will never be another world war because with the advent of the nuclear bomb. With the threat of it escalating to that point and causing complete annihilation of everything is what is keeping everyone at bay. But now you throw the new factor of these extremists Muslims in that have zero value in their mortal lives...

I don't think the general public is nearly concerned about this as they should be. I think most of us just think of this as another Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Libya, Somalia, etc... But it's not. In all of those others our government at least had some allies on the plan, this time our government is really bucking against the grain.
I agree with all of this... I truley think that if shit keeps going the way it is we will see another WW in our life time.
