Possibile WW3 Scenarios?


This one would probably never happen lol, but here's mine:

The year is 2012, inspired by revolutions all over the world; a nationalist party in the UK led by a very charismatic leader overthrows the Queen, claiming the previous government only served bankers and big business. After seizing power the new leader implements a series of reforms, and begins calling for a united Britain (England, Wales, Ireland, and Scotland) making himself extremely popular. He then begins fanning Islamophobic and Anti-American sentiment in Britain as well as Britain's protestant history by making inflammatory speeches against the U.S, Islam, the Catholic Church, and big business claiming they were all involved in a conspiracy to destroy Britain. At a NATO summit the United States condemns the new British government, causing British diplomats to storm out of the summit and withdraw from the NATO alliance. The following day the British leader orders the expulsion of all Muslims and American nationals living in Britain, angering both the United States and the Muslim world.

Driven by his nationalist ambitions the British leader orders the invasion of Ireland and conquers it after two weeks of fighting, the British leader then renames the country the Great British Empire, declares himself emperor and proceeds to annex Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, and then says the U.S. is next. The following week the U.S President in a televised speech orders Britain to relinquish all conquered territory or face war. This forces Britain to form an alliance with Russia. China, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela and Iran and calls it the New Axis (Although Iran is a Muslim country they have animosity towards the United States enabling Britain to make an exception in it's Islamophobic policies). Russia and China distrusting Britain refuse to join, Britain also asks Israel to join but Israel refuses, because of Britain's association with Iran; and their close relationship with the United States. The following day the emperor declares Russia, China, and Israel enemies and proceeds to invade Russia and conquers much of the European part, but with China's help Russia is able to regain all lost territory, meanwhile North Korea invades South Korea making one Korea, and Iran with the help of Britain, invades Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, and fires missiles at Israel. Israel is able to repel the attack, but Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, and Bahrain are conquered. Britain then orders rocket attacks from Canada to strike several American cities killing hundreds of people, and proceeds to invade France, Spain, Portugal, Holland, Belgium, and Germany. The U.N. Security Council condemns the New Axis' actions and forms a multinational Anti-Axis coalition consisting of the remaining NATO countries, Russia, China, and Israel. Irish militias resisting the British occupation also join the coalition. Muslim countries accuse Iran of selling out to the British, and fearing total annihilation put aside their differences with the U.S. and Israel and join the coalition. Japan, the Philippines, and South Korean resistance fighters also join the coalition. Setting the stage for what will be the largest, bloodiest war in over a century.

Why the hell would a BRITISH leader get rid of the Queen and the big banks! Britain is more or less THE Financial center of Europe. The only comparable countries on the continent in regards to finance would be Switzerland and the Netherlands.

If any European country goes crazy within the next 30 years and goes on an expansionist rampage, it would either be France, Russia, or Turkey.

Where is the wisdom in insulting the Muslim world?

Dear G-d! How did I miss the first sentence!


Anyways the Russia is a country that is more or less ultranationalistic.

Turkey's PM is a pretty scary guy if you look at some of his rhetoric. "The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers." Turkish Prime Minister Erdoğan

And the French seem ripe for a nationalist movement, considering the amount of multiculturalism and pan-Europeanism being forced upon them. In France, people are noticing the country is more and more aligning with Germany, much to the dismay of a considerable part of the population. Have enough tensions build up long enough, with a government that continues to hand sovereignty over to Brussels (and to a lesser degree Berlin) and you have trouble brewing.

Idk I don't see any of those countries starting a world war, Maybe Russia. I would think Iran or Israel would start the next big war, seeing the way things are going. Besides, Britain is a very nationalistic country, and is literally loaded with immigrants and multiculturalism to the point I heard that the English in the next 10-20 years will be a minority.

Well I specifically mention that those would be the European countries likely to go on a rampage more than any other European country, but if I have 2 beans and everyone else has one bean I have more beans than anyone else, even though it is still very low.

You're right, it will never happen!

1. The UK is breaking up, the opposite of what you suggest.

2. The Royal family could not be simply de-throned as you claimed, think about the army.

3. Britain is very tolerant towards Islam, catholics and anyone else.

4. Our relations with the USA are highly important.

5. The rest does not make any better sense. It is a complete fantasy and does not resemble real life in the slightest. Sorry.

I doubt the UK is going to break up, but it is going to become a more confederate, decentralized, union.
