Field of Conflict
With the many threats issued from North Korea and the lingering promise by Iran to "wipe Israel off the map", the place where most of the actual killing is going on is in fact Syria. And Syria could at any moment spark wider regional conflict with fighting potentially spilling into Turkey, the Golan Heights, or most likely, Lebanon. Syria is already becoming a proxy war of Shia backed by Iran against Sunni backed mainly by Saudi Arabia with the Shia propping up the Alawite Assad regime. The nations surrounding Syria want to stay out of the direct fighting but could be drawn in to what might be the Third World War.
