Can the Third World War be stopped before it is decleared?

So I was wrong it seems, in suggesting that the attacks in Abiey would be what formally started the Third World War. -Not even the Libya-war did that. So what does it take for a nearly continuous series of wars, from Sahara to the Hindu Kush, to formally become recognised as a world war? That the war spread to yet another continent? -Like North America? -Or does it require a direct superpower confrontation? Are formal declarations of world wars a thing of the past, belonging to an era less shady but not really that much more brutal?

But what difference does it make to victims of war, or to soldiers for that matter, what a war is called? So can the Third World War, if that is what this is, be stopped before it is declared?
