No, I do not think world War Three will happen, or at least anytime soon. The reasons for this are as follows:
Different Times
Nuclear weapons
UN

Starting off this debate with my argument against WW3 about how politics is much different to the early 20th century. With the knowledge of how terrible war can be, with more knowledge about the atrocities committed. Those who participated in the wars now would never just jump in to another one as it bankrupts countries and destroys their alliances.

Secondly, nuclear weapons are a huge discouragement as if you declare war on someone they might just spark a nuclear conflict to destroy the world. So, any county worth their salt won't risk the world for a mere few kilometers of land or resources.

The purpose of the UN is to prevent world conflicts and to this extent it has been successful. Unless a country is trying to go for absolute world domination, starting a global conflict would be a huge waste of time and resources as you would just be cut off by the outside world as shown by Germany in WW1 and Japan in WW2.

In conclusion, anyone looking to start WW3 will not be successful as almost every country is not stupid. This is evident from modern politics, technology and alliances. That is why WW3 is not going to happen anytime soon.
