Russia warns of ‘new world war’

“Russia warned of “a new world war” starting in Syria on Thursday after a dramatic day in which Gulf states threatened to send in ground forces.

Foreign and defence ministers of the leading international states backing different factions in the war-torn country met in separate meetings in Munich and Brussels following the collapse of the latest round of peace talks.

Both Russia and the United States demanded ceasefires in the long-running civil war so that the fight could be concentrated against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) – but each on their own, conflicting terms.”

“But the Gulf states, led by Saudi Arabia, staged their own intervention, saying they were committed to sending ground troops to the country. Their favoured rebel groups have been pulverised by Russian air raids and driven back on the ground by Iranian-supplied pro-regime troops. ”

“They said their declared target was Isil. But the presence of troops from Gulf states which have funded the Syrian rebels would be taken as a hostile act by the Assad regime and its backers, and a sign that they were committed to staking their claim to a say in the final Syrian settlement.

Russia issued a stark warning of the potential consequences. “The Americans and our Arab partners must think well: do they want a permanent war?”

Southern Philippines
Sudan
Kenya
Uganda
Algeria
Egypt
Iran

I know that as of 2015 almost everyone of those green shaded areas had insurgencies going on.
Some that I know offhand that are not on the list are Indonesia, Central African republic, Cameroon,Chad,Nigeria and Spain.
Does that sound like a world war to you?
The fuse is already lit on World war III
The only question left is how big the explosion is going to be

Now you know it’s bad : France FM says U.S. Surrendered to Iran’s Last Minute Demands at Nuke Talks

“The French delegation in Switzerland felt the outline for a nuclear deal with Iran was “not solid enough,” and wanted to improve upon the deal before signing off on the accord, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told Europe 1 radio on Friday.

However, the Iranian delegation threatened at the last minute to leave the talks entirely, which persuaded the American delegation to capitulate to the demands of the Ayatollah’s regime, Fabius revealed. The French Foreign Minister said he wanted a strong, comprehensive deal that dissuades “other countries in the Gulf such as Saudi Arabia from embarking on nuclear proliferation.”

Fabius’s remarks add evidence to Friday’s Wall Street Journal report that the delegation led by Secretary of State John Kerry continually conceded to the demand’s of the Iranian regime throughout the course of the talks. What started in September of 2013 as a chance to dismantle a vast swath of Iran’s nuclear program, turned into America making major concessions as the agreement was finalized, the Wall Street Journal explained”

Talk about the world being Bass Ackwards. The French busting on us for surrendering?

Jimmy Carter must be thanking his lucky stars that this incompetent ass wipe came along.

Let’s hope that this Iran deal is as much of success as Yemen Libya Syria Iraq Somolia… Well you know, one of his big foreign policy successes.

Maybe a Reset? Crap, no good there either.
