People keep saying China would back Russia I find that hard to believe as they hold a very large chunk of our national debt, I think they have a vested interest in keeping us around to help prop up their economy.

China won't ally with anyone in a war unless it becomes self defense ie someone invades China.
North Korea are a bunch of fools who are so ignorant that they wouldn't last a week outside the Korean peninsula. All they can do is point a few badly made missiles and push fire.
Russia is being fenced in by NATO and it is understandably getting upset. NATO / American aggression is driving all of this.
China currently has fighter jets in Syria dropping bombs along side the Russians...It's good training when you have live targets...
China is sending ships to the Mediterranean...Iran has ships on their way there as well...Could get ugly real soon...
Geographic borders are no longer what creates allies money is, if you don't believe that you are fooling yourself.

I couldn't believe Obama would maintain his dinosaur attitude towards Syria.
Only a war lord would decide to remove an elected government and there are other Heads of State incredibly cruel to their people who his attention would be more honourably focused on.
He has no offer of any solution to Syria's problems except to make them worse. If his 'men on the ground's help was for the legitimate government of Syria that would be fine, but its for people who have motivations against the Syrian people and want things Syria has that belong to the Syrian people.
I can't believe he thinks what he is doing is right - how the hell does he live with himself or sleep - alongside those who pull his strings.
On a slightly lighter note I see there is a gathering group of people from all walks of life who want Blair punished for lying to our parliament and the war and suffering he has caused in other countries. I hope this gathers strength and takes in Bush . If it does then perhaps these War Lord Heads of State will have to pull in their horns and offer help to countries that they actually need.
