Here's my prediction...
There will be a temporary alliance between the west and Russia while we fight a common enemy. We will all work together through various means to
defeat IS, remove Assad, and attempt to restore some stability to the region while working our butts off collectively to hunt down and apprehend every
religious psychopath in our countries.
It won't be entirely friendly and warm, but we're going to work together to destroy this common enemy while each side remains slightly suspicious of
When this is done and every IS operative is either dead or apprehended in a secure facility, and Assad is in the process of being replaced by an
elected government in the country, we'll end our uncomfortable alliance and return to what we've been experiencing over the last 5 years with Russia -
unless in that time Putin is replaced by a more rational and forward thinking leader.
There is no "trap" here other than the one IS is attempting to set - the division of Europe. We must not give in to this, we must remain united and
reject the other side of this extremism (the nationalist, racist, xenophobic, ignorant fools) with equal measure.
Nations like Hungary need to be careful here. They're becoming more and more right wing and radical and that will not be accepted in Europe. This will
become a matter of European security in the same way this situation is right now. Nations like Hungary need to get in line and stop their extremist
nonsense, or face being rejected from the union.
