This could be very bad. France may be the balancing act between Russia and China vs. the UK and US, however.
As long as Russia, China, France, The UK, and The US remain mutually part of the Permanent Security Council there will be no "World War" however. The
most we'll see is a Cold War, the existence of the UN is specifically so that a WW3 never happens. As long as the UN exists, no WW3, at least in any
UPDATE: I did some more research, and I'm inclined to believe the EU and Russia's elite are working behind the scenes secretly, beyond the prying eyes
of the public, to exacerbate this whole Ukraine situation to serve their best "financial" interests. War debts and reparations anyone?
Yup, apparently the New Axis are Russia, Germany and France. Got this after a google-search for 'Russia's closest allies'.
From the same source;
But once the patient is out of critical condition and up off the operating table, can Ukraine stand on its own without a lot
more European help? Once the revolution is off the front pages and the sense of urgency has passed, European governments will remember that the
redesign of the Eurozone and the needs of weaker economies already in the EU must take precedence. Nor do Europeans want an extended fight with
Russia, the country that provides 28 percent of the EU's imported natural gas. It took bloodshed to get the Europeans this involved in Ukraine’s
future. What will it take a year from now?
If things go really badly, Russia may convince the EU that Washington is the one to blame, and the U.S. could be facing heat, not only from Russia,
but the E.U. as well. It is important in highly unstable geopolitical climates such as these to, not only "think outside of the box", but to "get rid
of it all together", expect the unexpected. Yes, it is the common viewpoint that it is the United States, United Kingdom, Israel, EU and Pax-Americana
against the Muslim world... but it is not so simple as that. Look back through history, Hitler was Time's Man of the Year in 1938, not even a year
before WWII kicked off. Who knows which side of the battle-lines the U.S., or another EU/Pax-Americana nation and their "leader" could end up...
