When an idea is right, it doesn’t need the hard sell. It can be floated and allowed to ripen of its own accord and on its own merit.
The Russian concept for security in the Persian Gulf and more broadly across the Middle East generally, was floated at the UN earlier in the year. While others blustered and boasted of their own rash, ill-thought-out solutions – which naturally consisted of only military imposition, and illegal imposition at that – and gaining little support outside of the dumb and self-righteous, Russia’s plan has been slowly ripening and will soon I expect be ready for plucking.
Of such is the ideal way forward in the world. It’s the Russian way.
