https://www.rt.com/news/410544-trump-putin-assad-phone-call/ and https://www.debka.com/mivzak/putin-calls-netanyahu-discuss-syria-iran/

DJ; Putin trying to get a grip on the Middle East with (long) phonecalls with AlSisi from Egypt, Salman from KSA, Netayahu from Israel, Trump from US. Today there will be a meeting of Russia, Iran and Turkey. 

What to expect:
-Integrety of both Syria and Iraq means minorities (Kurds, Turkmen etc.) will have to accept not getting a "Kurdistan". (DJ-some Kurdish groups worked with IS-oil-transport financed IS)
-political reforms in Syria (could mean that Assad will see his time as president limited-Turkey want him out a. o,)
-Presence of Hezbollah and Iran in Syria and Iraq after the war against IS and other "groups". 

Putin would like to make a "peaceproces" in the Middle East his successtory. It may open doors (further) to North Africa (Egypt-Libya maybe even further Mali, Nigeria ?) and central Asia (Afghanistan, Kashmir ?). Russia and China want "good working relations"with both the EU and US.

Israel and KSA can not start a war with Lebanon when there are better options.

DJ-It is nice when three countries agree on "peace in Syria" but all those three countries have their own agenda. (Turkey wants to "limit"the Kurds, Iran would like to have a land-link to Lebanon/mediterrean ports, Russia is interested on long term influence in the region-and oil.)

https://www.debka.com/no-headway-putin-netanyahu-conversation-iran-hizballah-removal-golan-border/ DJ-There is still a major risk of false flags/accidents/escalations. Will there be an increase of "civil unrest" in KSA, Israel, Gulf States ? 

On the longer term chances for a nuclear war increase. More countries want nuclear weapons, those weapons may become "better in usage" and "anti-missile shields" may cause that some countries simply want to be able to fire more missiles. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-21/doomsday-scenarios-uks-hair-raising-admissions-about-prospects-nuclear-war-or-accide DJ-than there is also the "nuclear winter scenario" to "slow down" global warming. This "medication" may be worse than the illness itself.
