The EU has suspended talks on whether or not to include Turkey.
Brazil and South Africa’s currencies were simultaneously annihilated – like Greece’s was, now BRICS will show what it’s really all about: the New Silk Road. [I have covered this topic several times in other articles.]
If the USA is in Syria, Turkey belongs to Europe. If Russia is in Syria, Turkey belongs to Asia.
Additionally, Turkey controls all the on-land pipelines into southern Europe, and most of the water into the ME. (Ukraine controls the rest of the pipelines into Europe.)
You can’t make war in the Middle East without Egypt and you can’t make peace without Syria.
[Wikiquotes says that the above quote remains unsourced; other sites disagree. Whether he said it or not, it is a prevalent idea, and it makes the point.]
Recent reports have Egypt going one step beyond simply supporting Al-Assad to providing Syria with pilots and generals.
This seems like a bit of fake news. Maybe there was a translation problem from the original article.
Despite denying the military facts behind the reporting, the fact that Al-Sisi openly showed support for Al-Assad (instead of just the Syrian people – as he had previously done) means that the US’s former puppet/ally has just rejected American hegemony in favour of a pan-Asian alliance between China, Russia, Kazakhstan, India, Iran…
With Egypt (long-time foe of Israel) and Turkey (lynchpin of Eurasia) joining the ‘dark side’ and bringing Syria with them, America will be surrounded and will either be stuck in Iraq for a very long time, or they will go home, like the Russians did, from Afghanistan. Either way, Saudi and Israel are shaking in their boots at the prospect.
