Whats Fox News then?
Seriously though, is anyone else seeing 3 distinct teams forming in World Politics at the moment?
The US, Japan, Australia and Britian
Russia, Iran, Syria
China and North Korea
Ive got a "what if" scenario that kept me awake last night thinking about.
What if Russia and the US are in the process of orchestrating another Cold War based on the bringing down of Iran? Putin and Bush have spent many a
cosy night at his ranch previously but now they are completely distant with Russia closing itself off.
If Russia backs Iran/Syria militarily then an attack on it from Israel and the US would result in the downfall of the Iranian government with Russia
there to pick up the pieces in the region.
The US Administration would get its beloved Cold War back with a common enemy for the World without having an extremely expensive War on Terror with a
Russia would have gained Iran and Syria in a neo-Soviet Union and would probably retake Chechnya without having to appease the Americans any more.
They could also reinstate Soviet Era control on their public and crush the organised grime thats rotting Russia from the inside out.
That leaves the Chinese who are in on the plan or not. They absorb North Korea and after the US are finished in the Middle East we see the Americans
move to Japans side in the Pacific. With Russia massing its Army to its East on Chinas border.
Maybe an attack on China from both sides?
Just my mind working overtime, something to think about in a purely "what if" scenario.
