Russia is a new dominant power in Middle East
Debate Rounds (2)
After Barack Obama failed negotiations in Congress and gave a chance for Russia to enter the game with their rules, all American positions in Middle East have become misirable.
For USA, from this time point, it's doesn't matter what will be later. If USA will continiue agressive politics on Syria, all world comunity will raise against. If USA let Russia push themselves around and USA will refuse from their "peace-keeping" operation, Russian influence will become much more significant in this region.
So, Russian Federation will dominate this region for next several years.
1. "Assad regime" is winning the war against rebels. Almost all cities is under control now. As we know, "Assad regime" is pro-russian.
2. USA with their huge externa debt (over 17 trillions, data by Wiki) will cut their budgets and especialy in external decisions. At least this situation will continiue until Republicans will win. The war was their only chance to support such big external debt.
3. Also we can see interesting tendencies in USA society. People is turning to Russian side. My point of view based NOT only on mostly subjective opinions of CIS mass media. Many organizations and journalists located in USA and other NATO counties talks about that. For example "The Atlantic" with their topic: "Beyond Airstrikes: On Syria, Ask 'What Would the Godfather Do?", or even "The Times" with topic: "We can"t stop the world, we can"t get off".
So, I think the situation is clear. USA is loosing this political battle on every fronts.

Reasons for voting decision: the only thing more idiotic then pro's arguments were con's counter arguments, which fell drastically short of what was necessary to win a very winnable debate. The last round was basically a half a**ed concession of all of pro's arguments too
