As for Chinjao helping the Shs I can see it happening since logic dictates that he should be thankful to Luffy for returning some of his power, but it could go much further than that. With all the Marine/WG entities in the island this could turn into a huge battle between the pirates in DR and the authorities.
I think Fujitora foresaw(lol) that hence his commands to that one Marine Officer during his revelation.
I still think there is more the SH's need to show.
While Luffy's punch was good, I'm still far from impressed.

It would seem that the alliance is weak compared. I have a feeling either one of the Govts agents will turn on the WG/Marines or somebody else is heading to Dressarosa to help the SH's. The power scale def does not favor SH and company. So it will come down to a power struggle and even a struggle over ruler of the kingdom when its all said and done. Dofla thinks he has planned everything out but he didn't think by the end of this skirmish he would sit without a crown or place to call his own. Doflas own vanity and self confidence will be his downfall. I think whom ever wins the Mera Mera fruit will help the alliance out.
I still think the SH's are being majorly underestimated here.
The M3 are still yet to go all out.
