Russia is very less powerful. China might be a superpower but china and russia are not close allies. NATO and US allied countries are powerful. So there wouldnt be any WW3

After WWI, the popular belief was that after the destruction, carnage, death, etc. of the Great War, a second world war would never occur. They even created the League of Nations to bring the world together, and to ensure that if someone did get any bright ideas, the League of Nations would be the deterrent required.

...How did that work out for us?

You dont need for there to be super-powers who are opposed to each other for there to be a WW3, you only need two factions and countries from different parts of the world lined up on either side.

The odds of WW3 has decreased simply because the reasons for wanting to go to war n the first place have decreased as well. Nations no longer invade other nations for territory or to demonstrate strength, since doing so could cause the rest of the world to isolate the invading country economically, making it very much more problematic to invade a country than beneficial..... The sheer cost of fighting wars themselves has shot up tremendously as well, to the point that nations balk at the thought of going to war with a country they despise simply because it would cost a sh*tload of money.... The potential difficulty of winning is also a hell of a dissuasion to going to war since nations also dont like fighting wars that last several years or even a decade.....

That being said, the only thing I could think of that could cause nations from all over the world to line up on each side is a massive war between Israel and its neighboring Muslim nations. If such a war were to break out, the US would likely side with Israel since the US is so hardcore in support of Israel, Europe would probably offer only conditional support rather then deploy large regiments, and on the other side, very Muslim nations that would love nothing more than to wipe Israel off the map could ally with each other one last time and go for broke.

China would love an excuse to annex North Korea.
