Lets hope the situation on the Turkey/ Syria doesn’t escalate into world war III. It may sound a little far fetched but Iran is on the other side of Syria geographically and just beyond Iran is Pakistan , nuclear Pakistan. Turkey is in NATO and Russia is an allie of Syria. Syria borders Israel of course so the whole thing could just blow up in a minute and we won’t be worrying about the economic slump anymore thats for sure. Within a week the whole planet could be looking like the one Cormac McCarthy describes in his book ‘The Road’. Hell yes ! It could happen, Russia holds the key and they must remove Assad and put in a national unity government in Damascus, come on Putin do the right thing for once. In the meantime I’m going to worry like it’s 1963 all over again, or least imagine what it was like then.
