World War Next


"It is well that war is so terrible, otherwise we should grow too fond of it." - Robert E. Lee



World War 2 formally ended on September 2nd, 1945 and, in the decades since, the modern age has been rife with local and regional clashes, wars, and rumors of wars. Today, the world is evermore a powder keg ready to become alight as it inches towards the next great global conflict. World War Next (WWN) takes an algorithmic approach to predicting the next Great Global Conflict with data pulled from the defense aggregate GlobalFirepower.com fused with current global events and the previous two World Wars.
The bar below depicts the growing prospects of a new World War with relative peace attained to the extreme Left and a state of Total War achieved to the extreme Right. The Diamond icon depicts the current state of things based on inputted data.

Each global player is depicted below using color-coding. GREEN signifies relative stability whereas YELLOW showcases internal or external division and/or strife along with a growing threat to be pulled into Total War. RED depicts a country at war or close to becoming embroiled in one - heavily contributing to the prospect of a new grand global conflict. Countries are alotted a (hidden) 'point' value within our formula largely based on their active or passive participation in the previous two World Wars.

What is Most Likely to Start World War 3?


World War 3 will most likely be born from one or more of the four basic catalysts identified in any war: politics, territorial disputes, religion, and natural resources. These can also be interconnected wherein politics can drive an invasion to claim territory - the invasion resulting in captured resources to further both short-term/long-term battlefield actions. A war begun around religion can be manifested through political means subsequently inciting an invasion and, therefore, claim territory. At the end of the day, politicians/leaders begin wars with industry fanning its flames - leaving ordinary households to ultimately bear the brunt of its shocks and aftershocks.

How Long Would a World War Be?


Both World Wars covered years of bloody conflict on land, on sea, and in the air. World War I began in the summer of 1914 and ended in November of 1918 and was followed by World War II in September of 1939, ending in mid-1945. Both wars were complicated contests with defined sides driven by alliances and similar end-goals. The cost was immense in both cases, both militarily and in civilian deaths, not to mention the psychological and physical effects that would plague future generations. The period between World War I and World War II was a relatively short 20-year window. Comparatively, World War II ended nearly 80 years ago today.

What Will Be the Safest Country in World War 3?


The safest country in World War 3 will be the one that is politically neutral, whose citizens respect rule-of-law upholding basic human morals, is self-sustaining (particularly in agriculture and general goods), is protected by natural geographic hindrances (mountain ranges, swamplands, rivers, ocean), and manages a modest modern military force focused on self-defense. Shared borders are a detriment leaving island nations with a natural advantage (amphibious/airborne assaults are costly operations for invaders to undertake).

Will We Know When World War 3 is Imminent?


In today's Digital Age, the answer is most likely 'yes'. The world watched as Russia amassed its ground forces at the Ukrainian border in February of 2022 with U.S. intelligence knowing an invasion was imminent within days of peak build-up and operational execution. With round-the-clock surveillance provided by the ever-increasing number of satellites in space and social media users on the ground, it is difficult for belligerents to hide concentrations of assault forces.
