What we are seeing unfold in the collapse of traditional international relations.

Pakistan intelligence officials say a pair of missiles launched by a U.S. drone hit a militant hideout near the Afghan border and killed six suspected militants.

The weapons are at the ready before anyone refers to the United Nations.  There has been no attempt to take any proposed action to the UN.  Not only is the UN being marginalised, it is being removed completely from the political frame.  This is a danger even more frightening than the weapons of Assad.  No one is talking about a political resolution that first sees a period of calm so that civilians can gain some sort of grip on their life.  Certainly no one is even thinking about what happens after any conflict.  All that is being flagged up is war.  There is every chance that this time next week the United States will have made a strike.  These are crazy times and no one is considering for one second the suffering of the Syrian people ….

Is this the next move?

Putin has said categorically at a statement today that Russia will defend Syria if the United States launches a military strike.

So far no one is blinking.  Heavy words are being thrown around and the world is standing back.  But there is little respite in the push towards war.  Obama seems determined to make his pint, even it goes against the wishes of his own Congress and people.  Putin is equally as determined to block Obama.  Between the two there is the Syrian people.
