Do you think World War 3 is going to happen with America and Great Britain threatening Syria. Iran and Russia are also threatening America and Great Britain that they'll retaliate if USA/UK attack Syria! This might sound a bit premature but four of the worlds toughests countries are threatening each other. I'm just worried that World War 3 will break out.

Probably not, They have to have China join them, and they won't. China can't afford a war with the US given that they buy over 80% of what they make. A war with the US would cause their economy to collapse within a week.
The only other allies they really have is Iran, however they aren't a threat to them.If Russia wants to start a war with them they will have to go at it alone, and they will never win.

I read that lavrov said russia has no intention of going to war with anyone, I've not read much about china (apart from the stock market plummeting due to possible military strikes on Syria). So where are all these WW3 comments coming from?

No one is going to risk blowing up the world over a collapsing country. The frank truth is that Syria does not have enough oil or other resources to make anyone risk another world war over them. Russia has not said that they will defend Syria. All they're saying is that western intervention will cause major stability problems in the region. They're probably correct. When the US and their allies inevitably do launch airstrikes the Russians will just complain about how unjustified the intervention is. They won't do anything militarily. They never do in case you haven't paid attention to all of the conflicts they have opposed in the past. No one did a damn thing when America launched a full scale invasion of Iraq in 2003. One of the most oil rich countries in the world.

Kinda it really depends on what you mean by afraid if your talking in terms of military not so much but economically and politically they do have a small hand on their economy.

No, I don't think so, Russia seems to be taking the view 'that's the US and the West at it again', Syria is only one of the trading and strategic partners of Russia and if push comes to shove they can afford to lose them and therefore are not going to waste military resources on them.


It's different for the West however because the US and the UK have a tacit agreement to support Israel, so it's going to be yet another limited Middle Eastern war, bad enough, but the objective seems to be to take out Hezbollah who allegedly pose the greatest threat to Israel through their power base in Lebanon.

So, take out Assad in Syria and the Shias in Iran, never mind if the only way of doing this is to support Sunni Al-qaeda elements in Syria, they may pose a general threat to the West but we justify wars to fight them in Iraq, Afghanistan and more lately Pakistan, their opponents the largely Shia Hezbollah are more of an immediate and specific threat to Israel.

I'm not anti-semitic btw, but it should be possible to criticise policies of the current Israeli government without attracting this label, Israel is after all a relatively free-speech democracy where all shades of opinion are tolerated even if they are not represented in their current government, so there are opinions of both the right and left in Israel, very much like Britain, i.e. we could possibly assume that Netanyahu is criticised in his own country in the same way we criticise Hague and Cameron, it is therefore more anti-Semitic to class Israel as one entity of opinion.

It looks like it will be yet one more horrible skirmish in the Middle east, extra hundreds if not thousands dead or injured and suffering and nothing to show for it, except the inevitable brutalisation of war, and the furtherance of desperate extremist elements from both sides, and any attempts at a peace process set back several more decades, but not WW3, I don't think from current evidence.
