Even if we went to war with Russia, its not guaranteed that it would escalate into a world war.

Realistically, the only way we could go to war with Russia would be under an international coalition involving virtually every other country in the world minus Russia.

Um, I'm pretty certain that China at the minimum would back Russia up (and maybe North Korea , their leadership seems to love chaos)

Why wouldn't China consider the opportunity to reclaim the lands Russia took from her in the 19th century?

Nor is it certain the next world war will be called World War III.  After all, arguably World Wars I and II were the fourth and fifth world wars.  (The first being the Seven Years War/French and Indian War/Third Carnatic War, the second being the American Revolutionary War, and the third being the Coalition Wars of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic periods treated as one long war.)

A case can be made for the latter, but while the first had some fighting in the overseas colonies, it didn't involve any non-European powers.
