World War 3
I dout that technolgy will advance at all during world war 3. In fact in order to win the West would need to actruly go back in technolgy. Not only would we be fighting indivdual contries but also groups of people who act by them selves.
These people have nothing to blow up, nothing to destroy. the can move faster then we can. They would not engage in battles, but instead atack and hide. These atacks would happen at random spots across the globe. Some of these ateacks would be provented by technolgy at the begining. These people are smart and relize this so it would be only a matter of time until they have the cabiblties to remove the teachnolgy.
No in order to win this war we would need to manully find and destroy them. That is the only way.
