Step three – a military intervention against Syria that will be justified with the fact that a majority of nations at the General Assembly have voted in favor of it – it will be called a truly democratic resolution and it will be representative of what brand of democracy the NATO UN-PIRE represents.
The question begs to be answered, whether Vladimir Putin and Russia will continue to use Judo-Strategies in the Syria situation, or if it was time to kick balls so it hurts. It will also be interesting to observe how China´s policy towards the Dollar and Euro will develop. It may actually be that a direct confrontation between the two geopolitical blocks can be prevented if Russia and China begin to play hardball and assert their power. It would be naive to expect that China becomes more willing to let US Hegemony cast anchor in the South China Sea while an undeclared war is being waged against it´s interests.
