U.S.-Iran tensions: How close are we to WWIII? | Just The FAQs

Fears are mounting around the world following the assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani – but is World War 3 about to happen?

The killing of top Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani in an airstrike ordered by President Donald Trump last week sparked concerns about the possibility of World War III and renewed fears about the return of the draft. So many people visited the Selective Service website on Jan. 3, it crashed. The agency attributed the traffic increase to “the spread of misinformation,” in a tweet.

By now you’ve probably fielded a question or 15 from your children asking if they’ll be forced to pack up and go to war. Here’s how you can answer their queries.

How does the U.S. draft work?
As of today, it technically doesn’t work because there is no active draft.

“It would take an act of Congress signed into law by the president for the Selective Service Administration to go back in action and call people involuntarily to military service,” Davis Winkie, a project archivist for the Veterans History Project at Atlanta History Center and a serving officer in North Carolina’s Army National Guard tells USA TODAY.

Eric Fleury, assistant professor of Government and International Relations at Connecticut College, describes the Selective Service as simply a database for the government to keep a list of eligible males that they can draft to serve in the military should there be a need.

Enacting a draft is a congressional power, not a presidential one, Fleury explains. Should there be a need for people to serve in the military involuntarily, then that list will be used to start calling people to service.

    who genocided chinese in the world war 1?
    who genocided chinese in the world war 2?
    who as cause world war 3?
    who killed the Chinese ambassador in israel?
    ok, now what are you saying about Chinese?
    white people don't like other white people we notice, German Nazi vs Russia and USA, Israel vs Europeans, they always in conflict for supremacy they cant just love each other, like Jesus Luke 8. 20-21. its a shame so much destruction. they should all be friends, its weird. my mom his native first nation aboriginal and my father white Danish and its the same in the natives aboriginal tribes, so much hate. they should bring back Jesus in the schools, new testament Jesus its ww3 times, 2tim2.4 times. everyone is getting ready, establishing their positions to fight each other, meanwhile. Chinese make one now under (Mandarin) ONE language for all. Xi Jinping fathers vision is coming to light. read the book.
    Xi Jinping fathers do you know who he is? His son was to lead all Chinese and all Chinese agreed, before he was born, he was born to do his father vision, as Russia, even Vladimir Putin saint Petersburg street kid says it openly he will give Russia to any democratic leader that the people want as long as he can protect Russia, as long as no one stands out he will stay around to protect Russians, If Vladimir Putin had a son, 90% of Russian would want him to take over to make sure no one can ever mess with Russia, i use to work in Russia i know. The Chinese leader of all army was told to have a child so he could lead china into the next level, he was to make all Chinese talk to each other and not fight with each other, they were all to speak mandarin and go into the same direction. I'm just saying. you have all that money, all those media, yet not one is telling the truth about the elected chairman of all Chinese .

  29. But the war never started go trump

  30. WWIII is coming due to Israel's geopolitical and spiritual interests which is prophesied to be the center of conflict in the middle east and also from the anti Semitism nations. The name of the battle field is called "Armageddon" where all the nations are gathered for battle against Israel. It's also called the war of the Machines. It was shown in the movie 'Terminator" , "The war of the machines" it was a glimpse of the futuristic war technology that will take place in a WWIII. Yeah, it would be the "End of the World" but not the end of the earth and the purpose of the earth.
    What can we do? Repent and accept the new king of Israel-Yeshuah Hamashiach who will rule all nations and bring peace and righteousness to the Nations.
    The anti christ has been prophesied to bring "World Peace" , that means a WWIII is imminent for the anti christi to announce world peace. However, the real World Peace will come through the anointed king of Israel not the anti christ.
    1Thessalonians 5:3
    "When they say, “Peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape."

  31. 🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷

  32. If it’s like a mw2-3 ww3 then that’ll be better

  33. You are right. Iran supports terrorism. Terrorism that tries to fight daesh, which was formed with the help of the United States and Israel. Why does daesh only behead Muslims? Why does it have nothing to do with Israel? Then Iran will become a sponsor of terrorism ??. It was you who brought order to the Middle East

  34. We. Means peaple of iran. Dont want war. And like human all over the world.. 🇮🇷❤️😍😉

  35. Ok I’m late but how dumb are people. The world is so advanced now that if another world war happens nuclear weapons would be to powerful. That means destroying the whole economy because of the war meaning the world will end and will take billions of years to just make the world safe again.

  36. To be honest what were three kind of seems like it was already going on with the whole Korean War still going on and World War II technically still going on with Japan and Russia and with the whole North Korea launching nukes near Japan I kind of died World War IIl was already happening

  37. that’d be interesting, syria, iran, iraq, arabia, north korea versus america, india, and russia

  38. Why do we fight on our race and color or our relegion why can’t we live in peace something can come out off outer space and we will die pls stop this ww3 or any kind off shit iam done even I hate my country I live for earth 🌍 not for my country

  39. Nine months later and still no world War three
