    Please escape from short term details ($barrel drop 10%…). The key factor that ought to be extracted from all this mess is the apparent extreme speed at which Russia has able to develop cooperation with China within weeks. This speed cannot come from emergency but from a long duration preparation time (for several large projects) which were “on hold” for ever just because someone did’nt want to flip towards China, rather prefering to favor cooperation with West. This dream is now over:
    From present tireless restriction policy, Russia flip the page and irreversibly opens to China and some others. CSO is on steam now up to become a NATO mirror. Pakistan, Iran are asking to join too…. Why?
    Good job: US succeeded to merge all these into a half Humanity military block against them. This block has no reason to help West fight and contain ISIS (and possible hate successors): They may even provide them with money and weapons because Russia-China are immune to islamic terror.
    I don’t know what will happen but definitively, the world has changed and I am not sure it’s towards a safer one for West..
