Russia warns of ‘new world war’

“Russia warned of “a new world war” starting in Syria on Thursday after a dramatic day in which Gulf states threatened to send in ground forces.

Foreign and defence ministers of the leading international states backing different factions in the war-torn country met in separate meetings in Munich and Brussels following the collapse of the latest round of peace talks.

Both Russia and the United States demanded ceasefires in the long-running civil war so that the fight could be concentrated against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) – but each on their own, conflicting terms.”

“But the Gulf states, led by Saudi Arabia, staged their own intervention, saying they were committed to sending ground troops to the country. Their favoured rebel groups have been pulverised by Russian air raids and driven back on the ground by Iranian-supplied pro-regime troops. ”

“They said their declared target was Isil. But the presence of troops from Gulf states which have funded the Syrian rebels would be taken as a hostile act by the Assad regime and its backers, and a sign that they were committed to staking their claim to a say in the final Syrian settlement.

Russia issued a stark warning of the potential consequences. “The Americans and our Arab partners must think well: do they want a permanent war?”

We are not already in a world war ?

Here is a list from 2012 of Muslim insugencies

Bear in mind that the list is considerably larger now, but I am on a time budget and couldn’t find a current comprehensive one

Southern Philippines
Southern Thailand
West Turkestan
Northern India

The only difference now is that Russia is starting to participate

I know that as of 2015 almost everyone of those green shaded areas had insurgencies going on.
Some that I know offhand that are not on the list are Indonesia, Central African republic, Cameroon,Chad,Nigeria and Spain.
Does that sound like a world war to you?
The fuse is already lit on World war III
The only question left is how big the explosion is going to be
