Discuss.

World peace is probably next to impossible to achieving given the nature of the species. IDK. Someone convince me that world peace will triumph over war.

It won't be too long until North Korea crosses a line of some kind, so I voted war.

Neither really. There will always be some sort of Conflict somewhere, especially as the poorer continents have countries that continue to develop from third to second world. And the threat of a Global Nuclear War has been virtually eliminated with the end of the Cold War. Now there could be a Nuclear Bomb be set off by terrorists, or a developing country may launch a Nuke at another country (Pakistan/India, N Korea) But I don't think we will ever see a Worldwide Nuclear Conflict, and I doubt ANY established country has the brass to launch at the US, or one of it's main allies. Unless again it is a Small Nuclear Bomb set off by a Splinter Cell or Organization.

I think Worldwide economic ruin is more likely than all out nuclear war, but either way, all hell will be breaking loose.

Both are unlikely but I'd have to go with nuclear war.

Not really. TC isn't asking what WILL happen, just what is more likely. I think nuclear war is more likely. Not that I think it will happen, I just don't see everyone ever getting along.

Even if neither happen (which is more than likely in the near unforeseeable future), war is always more likely to happen than peace.

All it would take is just one country to launch a nuclear missile, and sh*t hits the fan.

That and running out of non renewable resources such as oil causing food shortages and all kinds of problems which might lead to resource wars and inevitable nuclear war..
