WWIII is probably not the way the world is going. Who would participate?
The Russians are broke, the Chinese are too busy spending our money, the Germans are all happy for the first time in 150 years, the French, are well, the French. The Brits have better things to do. If the US has any, new-found, sense, we would not want to participate either. I think most of us are about burned out on wars for a while.
What is far more likely is just what we have been seeing for a while. Revolutions, squabbling among third world nations, genocide and starvation, but not WWIII. The only big problem now seems to be Iran, and it won't take a world war to deal with them. If they seriously threaten Israel, I suspect their government will disappear into the fog and the night. Iran's nuclear weapons will be the end of their own government.
I predict that we will continue to be happy with our food and circus, our economy will slowly improve, the rich will get richer and the poor will get poorer, and the middle class will continue to take it in the arm from the other two groups. People will get used to the idea of a black man in the White House, the house and senate will be Republican for a while, and continue to squabble and piss and moan with the minority Democrats, and the SHTF paranoia will fade away except for the serious nut jobs.
The alternative is unacceptable.
