Proteus, there is no official definition of a World War perhaps but when I use the phrase I mean when at least 2 of the 3 big guys (US – Russia – China) are fighting each other directly. Use of proxies doesn’t count. The big guys need to actually be waging war against each other. Of course numerous other countries would be dragged into the conflict either by choice, by association, or by plain bad luck due to their location or resources.
I would add that it must be in the open as well. China doing cyber hacking and maybe our doing it back doesn’t count if on the surface we continue to do business as if we are best buddies.
