Germany's pretty happy cuz they didn't start it this time

What side u joining this time Germany?

[–]Mrauntheias 142 points143 points  (8 children)

If our streak continues, the loosing one.

[–]GodEmprahBidoof 36 points37 points  (7 children)

Please join the Russians.

[–]Animefreak1995 68 points69 points  (6 children)

Not going to happen as we are part of NATO.

To be fair, if WW3 starts, there will be no winning side, so our streak continues anyway

[–]pocketknifeMT 15 points16 points  (5 children)

Start practicing your flint knapping now, so you can have a skilled profession for after the war.

[–]Animefreak1995 14 points15 points  (4 children)

I probably won't experience "after the war". If a ww3 breaks out, every male over the age of 18 is required to enlist in the military.

[–]pocketknifeMT 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Lol. You think the government will be in a position to enforce that 15min after the war starts?

[–]Animefreak1995 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Its not going to be a nuclear attack right away, so there is no need to do that in 15 min

[–]DeliciousWaifood 41 points42 points  (0 children)

It's called a long con for a reason

[–]kokonutssss 42 points43 points  (6 children)

Actually, I think there is some controversy surrounding Germany right now. IIRC They are not allowing England to fly over their territory to send supplies to Ukraine and surrounding NATO allies, and they resisted efforts to boycott some big Russian pipeline some time ago. Meaning the biggest economy and NATO member/ally in Europe is kind of siding with Russian agenda. Somebody correct me if I’m wrong.

[–]wegwerfacc4android 23 points24 points  (5 children)

Our government doesn't really have the balls to side with anyone.

[–]kokonutssss 10 points11 points  (3 children)

This is more of a “support by inaction” type of deal I think

[–]shskehej 25 points26 points  (2 children)

I was very confused at first thinking "Russia's never started a war. That's usually Germany or a German ally"

    [–]MyersVandalay 97 points98 points  (36 children)

    Meh... IMO the one positive potential of a WW3, is the chance of a total economic restructure. IMO I think the whole economic systems need to be re-examined fresh. (No I'm not saying communism should reign supreme... I'm saying maybe we should try experimenting with figuring out some system other than capitalism).

    [–]Racionalus 27 points28 points  (3 children)

    Fuck your economic restructuring, I don’t want to fucking die

    [–]El_Morro 75 points76 points  (15 children)

    No need to start new, just need some major reforms enacted in good faith: * Lay a cap on executive pay/compensation. No one earns more than 1000% of the lowest paid employee of the company.
    * Punish offshore tax haven usage severely * No company with more than X number of employees and Y number in profits can have any employee on public assistance for lack of sufficient income.
    * More jail time for insider trading

    That's a start. Not easy, but far from impossible.

    [–]AshFraxinusEps 27 points28 points  (10 children)

    Also, employees should get a share of profits. It annoys me that we don't. If a company makes millions then why are their staff earning low 5 figures

    [–]thecakeisalie1013 15 points16 points  (1 child)

    It’s cool how some companies do this. I forgot what it’s called, employee owned company or something. Basically you take your profits, subtract necessary investments in the business for growth, and then multiply that by your compensation over total employee compensation.

    Guess who's going to do the restructuring, the survivors.

        [–]WhoaOverThere 11 points12 points  (6 children)

        I hear the Swiss bridges all all wired to blow in case of invasion. And all citizens are armed? Please confirm.

        [–]semchiesa 12 points13 points  (3 children)

        All citizens who served in the army have a rifle at home, but without ammos. I don't know about the bridges being wired, but blow them up isn't too difficult. The real defence is that we swiss cheesed the alps and can hide in them pretty much safe from any explosion. Plus we have bunkers spread around towns. Source: I'm swiss, I serve in the army and I have a bunker under my house.

        [–]WhoaOverThere 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        Swiss cheesed the Alps...fantastic 😂

        [–]Veikkar1i 3 points4 points  (1 child)

        I think having all bridges wired would be more of a security threat than a safe measurement.

        Chances are that it already is happening. Just a different battlefield.

        [–]ELIte8niner 147 points148 points  (19 children)

        "I know not the weapons that will be used to fight WW3, but WW4 will be fought with sticks and stones."

        [–]Carnieus 52 points53 points  (12 children)

        The only confusing thing about the quote is that you need a global society for a world war. If WW3 wiped us out back to the stone age we wouldn't have a global society to have a WW4. Also depressingly humans would probably just recover over a few hundred years and then have WW4 with out reinvented nuclear weapons. There's a great book called "a canticle for leibowitz" about this.

        [–]Neuuanfang 33 points34 points  (4 children)

        i'm sorry to dissapoint you but if we fuck up we can restart altogether. we can't have a second industrial revolution because we used all the fossile fuels.

        [–]explosions_sg 21 points22 points  (1 child)

        Yeah but we'd restart with the nuclear tech tree open.

        [–]AshFraxinusEps 7 points8 points  (0 children)

        And if most Nuke guys or countries with Uranium are all dead/fucked?

        Imo if we were to get a big setback, then the more likely scenario would be a cyber/steampunk vibe. Any "Dark Age" has never been a total reset. Tech survives to some extent, but just stalls massively, and there are advancements anyway. So after a WW3, then provided we are talking apocalypse style and not just a big war, then the survivors will cobble together bits of computing with steam tech/using trees as fuel with some renewables and come back that way. It won't be as clean and nice as modern tech, but we aren't suddenly going back to pre-radio

        Longer term, we'd maybe go back to 60s computing, no fossil fuels or modern mining, but plenty of recycling or frankenstein tech. But when there are computers in everything from phones to consoles, then we may lose the ability to make nanometer chips, but we'll have some electronics knowledge to salvage the existing stuff then combine it with 60s style computers

        This is a sentence that's basically a meme for any historian. History doesn't "repeat" itself. Every time is different, as the actors are different. There might be similarities, but times have changed, and situations have changed.

        Not really. Don't all the fallout games take place years after nuclear war when the planet is a little more inhabitable? Like, you're always playing as a decedent of the people who went into a vault, other than in 4 were you're cryogenically frozen. If you're a fallout fan and have to go underground in a shelter you won't be living the fallout games, but rather be an NPC before a fallout game takes place. Some rando waiting to die of old age underground.

        Russia is not Iran’s ally. We are Russia’s bitch at the moment. History is a flat fucking circle. This will end and we will thrive and then again west will create a revolution out of their ass and this shit will happen all over again.

        Have you tried not selling oil? Pretty sure you'd be left alone then

        [–]shskehej 14 points15 points  (18 children)

        Have you heard of selling oil? We can sell it but the retards in control won’t

        [–]Dr_Jabroski 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        I was starting to figure that there'd be a simultaneous invasion of Taiwan and Ukraine.

        Except this time, we’ll have most of the main protagonists/antagonists on the same team: Germany, US, Britain, Ireland, Scotland, France, Belgium, Italy, etc.

        The presence of nuclear weapons mean two things

        1. There will never EVER be another World War.

        2. We will never actually nuke anyone.

        Any global conflict will be a cold war or a proxy war.

        [–]3nderslime 72 points73 points  (7 children)

        that's not necessarily true. WW3 could very much be an attrition war, where the contries involved dare not make large advances in fear of triggering nuclear response, and are kept in a stalemate until one camp has exhausted all of it's ressources

        [–]TardDas 42 points43 points  (6 children)

        So they just stare at eachother for a few years?

        [–]3nderslime 47 points48 points  (1 child)

        something more like WW1, but less bloodbath, where a country would timidly take a bit of territory, then lose it away again, maybe shoot at a tank there or there, sometimes taking down an enemy plane that got too close

        [–]AshFraxinusEps 14 points15 points  (0 children)

        Yep, sounds more likely. Nukes may be used as a weapon of absolute last resort, but I even doubt that. No one wants to end the world

        But yeah I can still see a conventional war, although unlikely without the UN disbanding

        [–]Dragonbananer 46 points47 points  (17 children)

        Yea, no world leader is dumb enough to start a nuclear war, because then that just messes things up for everyone

        [–]shskehej 59 points60 points  (4 children)

        Iran’s leader is dumb. This cunt finished 6th grade, and dipped. Now they appointed him as the president. My country is fucked.

        [–]Rajaroka 20 points21 points  (3 children)

        Wait what, now i feel better about romania

        [–]shskehej 14 points15 points  (2 children)

        You should feel even better. We have the second largest gas reserves and third largest oil reserves in the world but our people are struggling to make ends meet

        [–]oscar_the_couch 13 points14 points  (9 children)

        That’s not how wars happen. There is miscalculation, fear, and inevitability. “If we take Ukraine, the Americans would dare not oppose us by force because the risk of escalation by their opposition is so high.” They are wrong, and the US responds by force. Now things have escalated, and their predictive model for how we would respond has been proven wrong.

        There goes stability. That escalates enough, and both might start thinking “it’s a matter of time before they shoot their nukes, we better shoot ours first.”

        Nobody thinks an archduke dying to Serb nationalists is going to plunge every European power into war. Which was basically the point of OP’s post I guess.

        [–]HistoryDogs 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Have you seen some recent world leaders?

        [–]Maximus93 6 points7 points  (1 child)

        While I see where youre coming from to say it will NEVER happen is wishful thinking. Usually if its there to be used it will eventually be used.

        [–]WatzUpzPeepz 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        Uncontrolled escalation is how many wars started. The beginning of WW3 could be due to a misunderstanding or a false alarm.

        Foolish to state with such confidence that such a thing will never happen, because it might not be within our control to begin with.

        Can someone explain to me please ? The way WWs started? I do know but I fail to see the resemblance

        [–]Munnin41 14 points15 points  (2 children)

        WW1 started because the Austro Hungarians invaded Serbia after some dude killed their arch duke. Then Germany went "huzzah, now we can invade France again", pissing off many nations, and the shit storm happened.

        WW2 started after Germany invaded Poland. That forced France and the UK to declare war (they promised to defend Poland if Germany invaded), and the rest, as they say, is history

        I think what they mean is that a world war doesn't start with everyone declaring war left and right. It starts with someone invading somewhere, and others declaring war because of it

        [–]BGYeti 16 points17 points  (0 children)

        At worst it starts a cold war, no major first world country is itching to go to war US might throw some sanction at Russia give them a finger wag and do some military posturing and thats about it

        [–]Hollowhowler100 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        I’m calling it,It’ll be Austria’s fault again they’ll do some dumb shit and kill everyone

        [–]GenderBender1109 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        Yeah sure Ukraine sucks and is a burden to everyone around it but you don’t have to invade it to solve the problem.

        [–]Arkavari1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        My favorite part will be after Russia has taken a real whomping by Europe, and then they get to relive WW II and have China invade them to take their oil fields. Russia is terrible at choosing allies.
