Further to this post,
any small waves we may cause–we do takes ourselves so silly seriously–will seem as nothing compared to other developments, possible and actual:
Iranian commander mocks Saudi offer to intervene in Syria [with video]
Any foreign troops sent to Syria will return ‘in coffins’, says Damascus
UAE says ready to send ground troops to Syria
Turkey delivers aid across border as Syrian forces step up Aleppo assault [with Russian help]
One would rather have the Emiratis on one’s side than the Saudis; though one wonders how serious either’s intent is–and whether they would end up fighting Assad’s forces (their real target, what with the Iranian support) rather than ISIS. Then throw in the Russians and Turks and one might have to start thinking of tsunamis rather than ripples. The Western coalition members may be getting into truly ugly pickles.
