A couple of days ago, I attempted to tie together several threads into a larger (hopefully) somewhat coherent speculation about a possible future world. In a nutshell, the current order has died – only waiting for whatever is to replace it to emerge.
I speculate that Russia, China and a few others will band together in this possible new world. They will gladly work outside of US-centric systems in a time and manner determined by them. This Syrian episode is a key sign in this transition.
Well, I am not alone.
