The song in the video is "Hell March 2" by Frank Klepacki, from the Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 soundtrack.
A [possible] preview of World War III using gameplay from several video games, most of which depict a global conflict.
At the time I made this video, I predicted that World War III would involve an invasion of the United States by Russia and China. However, I was a young, impressionable, and immature teenager back then. Nowadays I realize the immense difficulty of such an invasion. Sure, Russia and China have powerful militaries. But they lack the naval power and logistics systems to mount an invasion of the U.S. Plus, America and China are economically dependent on each other (making war a double suicide for both countries), and Russia is a friend, albeit an unsteady one.
I don't know how World War III will unfold. But I disagree with the Einstein quote that World War IV will be fought with "sticks and stones." Humanity may have the power to destroy, but it also has the power to create and rebuild.
