Proper nounEdit

World War III

  1. A hypothetical world war following, and on an equal or greater scale to, World War II.

Usage notesEdit

During the Cold War this term implied instantaneous world destruction. With the various subsequent conventional wars, that implication is becoming much less common. It is now more often used colloquially to exaggerate personal arguments, such as conflicts within a nuclear family.
