Russia and China will back the Muslims at first. Eventually Russia will come to our side.
It has already been predicted.
The Chinese might not back the Muslims, but if they do, it will only to turn thsoe countries into fully collapsed backwaters and then they (the Chinese) will be able to take over, under the guise of restoring order. The Russians strike me as the type that will be on our side when Obama is out of office and they are dealing with someone who will be a reliable ally and also someone who won’t be weak.
