Could a Regional Force Turn Against Saudi Arabia & Israel?
By JC Collins
With the growing concentration of military power in Syria comes the increased potential of a major regional conflict. Such a conflict, between China, Russia, and Iran, as well as Syria, on one side, and the US, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, France, Canada, Australia, Britain, etc.., on the other side, could very well be considered a war involving the world’s major powers.
But consider the possibility that such sides will not materialize, and influential leaders will be successful in their attempts to organize and consolidate all under one collective mandate. With Germany’s Angela Merkel stating today that Assad must be a part of any Syrian peace talks, and Russia and China both becoming more involved in the conflict, such a possibility is now appearing to be more probable than it would have appeared only a few weeks ago.
