Whats the line that has to be crossed before its a World War ? Ideology ?
A world war needs direct armed confrontation between a large number of major powers in a conflict that touches on many places throughout the world. And seeing as China, the US, Europe, Russia, India, Japan, Brazil, etc etc aren't fighting each other then we are no experiencing a world war. In fact things are rather peaceful all things considering.
