    World war III? Hardly. But it's about time western leaders admitted that Islam is at war with the west and free thinkers alike. Putin is right, we need to form a military allegiance, and obliterate deash in Syria and Iraq, send in troops . We have a military, let's use them,Obama!

    Either a world war or a plague. A damned good plague.

    Either one will thin the herd sufficiently to "save the planet" - won't it?

    China doesn't have 'imperial ambitions'. Russia might....but they're in no condition to wage such a war. They're biggest customers are the very people they'd fight in your scenario. Same with China and its battle with the US. Their economy would go into a stark tale spin without the US market. With their number 2 trading partner Japan allying with US as well.

    Your scenario is wildly improbable.

    That would be a foolish thing to declare. As 'Islam' is 1.6 billion people. ISIS....about 100,000. It would be monumentally stupid to increase the combatants you must fight by 4 orders of magnitude because you want your declaration of war to fit on a bumper sticker.

    Watch as the ME turns neutral when we(us vs Rusia)use their land as fighting ground.

    You raise the number of a group to lower the chance of losing the one.

    Let's see the note from your mother informing us on how smart you are; the only 'ass handing' you're doing is in passing your own around.

    And it's you're', not 'your'. As a half-wit with high self-esteem, you can possibly make it worth my time playing 'I Touched You Last!!!' by posting a YouTube of yourself falling on the floor, threatening to hold your breath and turn blue, though; then I might consider indulging your rather dim-witted attempt at playing semantic games, despite badly botching your first attempt at it.
