Russia and Turkey versus Israel-USA?

Anonymous -

Russia and the USA may become directly at war with each other in the Mediterranean off the Israel-Palestine coast, rather than Ukraine

Pepe Escobar:

"A quite possible scenario – whose consequences can be equally devastating:
Moscow – in collaboration with Ankara – launching a Global South-supported blockade-busting operation against Israel.

It’s no secret – apart from the modus operandi – that Putin and Erdogan have discussed a possible Turkish humanitarian naval convoy to Gaza, which would be protected from an Israeli attack by the Russian Navy out of its Tartous base in Syria and the Russian air Force out of Hmeimim. That would raise the stakes to unforeseen levels."

China would potentially support its longtime ally, Russia.

At which point — depending on China’s level of involvement and support — developing countries worldwide, including in South Asia (India), Africa, and Latin America, may conclude that they’d be better off ‘divorcing’ the West and aligning with the China-Russia axis on the issue of Palestine-Israel and potentially other issues as well.

The actual or tacit support that many developing countries traditionally give to the ‘Western imperialists’ seems to be less a matter of shared principles or ideology, and more a case of it seeming to be in their economic interests. You normally want to keep the ‘big boys’ — the bullies, if you like — on side.

But as China continues to exert more global influence and the China-Russia alliance becomes more important, the calculus for some developing countries is likely to change.

China and Russia harden positions on Gaza
