UNSC votes unanimously on ISIS “threat” – but what does this mean in real terms?

“What to make of the unanimous, though seemingly very vaguely-worded, UN vote on “a global and unprecedented threat to international peace and security”? Does it really indicate a potential new rapprochement between the West and Russia? This possibility is being heavily promoted in some (mostly Russian) media right now, while other outlets – such as the Guardian and NYT – are so far pretty much ignoring the UN resolution altogether.

A united attack on ISIS is fine in theory, if we ignore the fact NATO is funding and arming ISIS, and is actually engaged in what amounts to a proxy war with Russia in Syria. Allying with Russia to destroy ISIS would require a total reversal of US/NATO policy, not just in the ME, but globally. This seems very unlikely to happen, unless we have been completely deceived about the nature of Russo/US geopolitcs.

It will certainly prove very interesting to watch developments in the next few days and weeks. A good measure of the real intentions behind current rhetoric will be the reception given to Russia’s draft UN resolution “proposing international military campaigns to fight against Islamic State”. Whether it’s passed or blocked by certain members of the UNSC will tell us a good deal about where loyalties truly lie.”
