    Okay, this is completely hypothetical obviously. I'm writing something about this and would just like to know what people's views are.

    How do you think people would react? Panic or carry on as normal? What measures would the government take to prevent riots etc. ? Would there be a mass exodus out of the cities? Would there be an attempt at evacuation?

    What else do you think would happen?

    The question is far to open to answer. To many variables ect.
    For example, Argentina technically declared war on the UK during the Falklands. Yet it was a world away to effect our normal day to day life.

    It depends on who declared war on us. I don't think any western nation is foolish enough to do that. Eastern/middle easter nations are simply to far away.
    Its not as simple as declaring war on one country. By declaring war on the UK, you will no doubt have to deal with every NATO nation.

    Whoever declares war on us does so on the US as well as our numerous allies. It would be a very short war indeed. I would say that I'd head straight on down to my local army office to do my bit, but to be honest WW3 will not be a foot-soldiers war, it will be the war of nuclear bombs.


    Calling it now, WW3 will be the shortest World War ever.

    All the immigrants would be blamed and racism would be up, so I guess crime would be increasing for them, but other than that I think it'd be pretty normal.

    Say it was way in the future. America's power had diminished slightly and war was declared on both nations by a hostile nation of the same kind of power as America today.

    Obviously this won't happen any time this century but still...

    It depends who declares war. For example if China declared war we'd be like 'oh ****..'

    but if the Azerbaijan declared war it'd be a laugh.

    I still find it hard to believe it could happen under them circumstances. NATO is just to big of an organisation to have war declared on by a single nation, and most probably will be for a very long time!

    Britain has been involved in war every year, bar one, since 1939.

    In the case of a nuclear war, a select few will be guided to underground nuclear shelters while the majority will unfortunately perish.

    I just picked a random country that would pose no threat to Britain.

    I hear the Principality of Sealand is preparing their vessels in an attempt to win their sovereignty. I'd be worried.

    Any such war would be very short or non-existent.
