The Ants and the Grasshoppers.

“Miguel Silva observes that strategic ambiguity on the part of traditional greater powers compels middle powers to seize the initiative.”

…”So while Western Europe was occupied with frivolous pursuits of universal jurisdiction or effective democratic development models for Africa, Eastern Europe has been engaged in a tense competition with Russia, for geopolitical safety.

While America focused on making the world safe for democracy, the Middle East was bridled with new initiatives aiming at regional supremacy.

While South America played with sterile models of regional unity, Africa was invaded by the big Asian powers.”
