DJ-Some background;

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-06/trumps-relationship-russia-china-revival-henry-wallace-doctrine DJ-FDR during World War 2 was hoping for peacefull cooperation between the US-Russia (Soviet Union) and China after the war.

Middle East;

https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/houthi-aircraft-let-loose-powerful-attack-on-two-saudi-airports/, https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/houthi-forces-unveil-new-cruise-missile-photos/

DJ-Turkey has its own agenda, going for its own goals and has room to do so due to the western war against Syria. Turkey is fighting with Iran against the Kurds-all three nations are non-Arab. The Arab-nations fear growing Turkish influence-may see that as a larger risk than Iran influence. (At least Iran has oil-Turkey may come for oil).
Turkey and Saudi Arabia also have a religious conflict-with Turkey claiming S.A. is not doing enough to protect the holy islamic places.

Saudi Arabia itself is sinking deeper in the mud they created in Yemen. Depending on foreign military (South American mercenaries, former Blackwater PMC's, Pakistan, Sudan forces) the KSA fails to get control over Yemen. Blaming Iran for that is not a solution.

The UAE is pulling out of the conflict, just like many foreign armies. Oil infrastructure in Saudi Arabia is now less protected while Yemen has better (long range) weapons.

Both Turkey and Yemen will further escalate conflicts for their own goals. Both Russia and the "west" are limited in what they can do on that. Further escalating tensions with Iran is creating more room for other conflicts in the region.

With other conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine (but also Mali, Algeria etc) starting a war against Iran could make the West Asia-North Africa region "explode".

Turkey has limited means to get much control over such a situation, the US wants chaos-is unable to create order. A wider conflict would be an open door for Russia and China.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ-Some of the headlines;
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-08/major-provocation-china-us-approves-sale-22-billion-weapons-taiwan,https://www.rt.com/news/463698-duterte-china-war-usa/

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-08/iran-threatens-surpass-20-uranium-enrichment-after-iaea-confirms-45 and https://www.moonofalabama.org/2019/07/pretty-please-trump-asked-iran-to-allow-him-to-bomb-it.html

https://thebulletin.org/2019/07/pentagon-report-russian-leaders-believe-they-are-already-at-war-with-the-united-states-in-the-gray-zone/?utm_source=Newsletter%20070819&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=PentagonReport_07052019

https://www.rt.com/news/463714-russia-india-submarine-su57-deals/

Again-the US know they can not win an open war with Russia-Iran-China (R-I-C). So the US via tarifs, sanctions, proxies is fighting "R-I-C" in covert wars with frontlines from Libya, Venezuela, Yemen, Syria, Ukraïne, Kashmir, Baluchistan, Afghanistan, South China Sea/Hong Kong.

From time to time the "covert" war gets close to "open" war. Sooner or later things get out of control and we end up in a major conflict.

(DJ-The US (and the EU, Russia, China etc.) should deal more with the growing food crisis in the US and the effect that will have on the globe. The US is the main agriculture exporter (Dutch are second). Due to flooding in the US, climate collapse around the globe, the number of refugees may explode !

We did see temperatures in France one would expect in Saudi Arabia. An extreme heatwave could make hundreds of millions of people move. A border wall is not the answer-trying to slow down climate change, diseases (ebola is just one of many) etc may be a batter answer.)
