China's desire to become a superpower will cause it to try to undermine the US's influence in East Asia and assert its own military presence in the region, to the chagrin of its US-aligned neighbors (or just nations that hate China in general, such as Vietnam). Meanwhile, Russia resents NATO and the United States, and it wants to undermine both and become a regional superpower. The two nations, sharing a common hatred of things such as human rights and freedom, will ally together against the West in order to form a new world order. Naturally some crap will happen after this and then WW3 will start. It'll quite possibly start in either 2016 or 2017.

@Vox_Veritas In may this year Xi Jinping announced that world war 3 is inevitable if America doesn't get rid of it's military presence off it's shores. Despite this warning, the US hasn't moved.

If by "its shores" it means East Asian countries in general, then there's no way that's gonna happen, and the US shouldn't comply with such demands in any case.

By the way, please provide a link to where Xi Jinping said this.

@reece That isn't the first time China or another adversary has claimed that. Most of its is just bluster to rally the people at home.

@Vox_Veritas I'm talking about their artificial islands.

@58539672 It's all fun and games when small countries threaten war on the US. But when powers like China and Russia do it, you better leave one eye open.
58539672 says2015-08-06T22:46:34.9689461Z
@reece Please. America is the most terrified nation on the planet. We haven't slept in 250 years.

In all seriousness though, both China and the USSR made these exact same claims before and nothing came of them. Ill need something more substantial than his word to be convinced.
reece says2015-08-06T22:51:51.4481748Z
@58539672 Lol that was a complete 360. When the stakes are high, all you need is a persons word.

Uther, you should have put Diaoyu first, and put Senkaku in round brackets, if at all. Diaoyu was the original name; Senkaku is a silly name concocted by the Japanese who robbed us of the islands, and besides, it simply sounds like nails on a chalkboard...

Bernie Sanders makes it into the primary election and goes head to head with Donald Trump. Trump continues to make a fool of himself and hands out Renee Zelwegger's home phone number during a live debate. The Corporate powers recognize Bernie is on the verge of winning the presidential office and they send 2 Black Lives Matter terrorist to have him whacked. Bernie ducks a Mac 10 and escapes into his private escort but suffers a heart attack because he's old. Alex Jones blames the Illuminati and North korea weren't bluffing, they have 10 nukes which they launch wiping out the entire planet.
