Although they are far from being true allies, they have one goal in common: Exterminate America (See also HERE). “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” describes perfectly the real relationship. In real life, there are no allies, just interests.
As JR Nyquist mentioned years ago, One Clenched Fist is what will be used to carry out their goal. This is why you should also be concerned about economic crashes since the blame is always shifted outward, and sometimes by means of war.
What’s worse is nobody noticed what was going on right under their nose, or if they did, cared to do something, until it was too late. And now… It’s too late. Their economic and military infrastructure have been set up. America has complacently crossed the Rubicon without knowing and the die have been casted.
Say hello to your future neighbors, Mr. Chang and Boris… if you last that long.
China and Russia are aligning their strategies to team up against the United States, according to a commentary by the Global Times, a tabloid under the auspices of the Communist Party mouthpiece People’s Daily.
Following more than two decades of development, bilateral relations between China and Russia have reached a new phase, the July 18 commentary said, adding that China now considers Russia an irreplaceable partner for all its key strategies.
These include the Silk Road Economic Belt, the land-based component of Beijing’s amibitious “Belt and Road” initiative to boost cooperation and connectivity in Eurasia; the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the political, economic and military organisation the two countries founded along with Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan; and the BRICS association comprising Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, as well as the group’s New Development Bank.
During Chinese president Xi Jinping’s visit to Moscow in May, the two sides also signed off on a joint declaration detailing cooperation between the Silk Road Economic Belt and the Eurasian Economic Union, which comprises the Eurasian states of Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.
Beijing appears to be working hard to eliminate Moscow’s wariness and concerns to form a China-Russia “dual engine,” Global Times said, noting that there is still some tension stemming from the perceived competition between the Trans-Asian Railway supported by China and the Trans-Siberian Railway pushed by Russia, as well as the Central Asia–China gas pipeline from Central Asia to the northwest Chinese region of Xinjiang and the Altai gas pipeline from Russia’s Western Siberia to North-Western China.
A key to China’s strategies is the Beijing-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, a pivotal platform for broadening cooperation and increasing the scale of development. Also important is the BRICS’ New Development Bank and its reserve currency pool of US$100 billion, which will contribute to the fight against the liquidity crunch and global deflation by helping emerging markets better deal with the risks.
Global Times warns, however, that the China-Russia relationship will not always be smooth sailing, and that the strength of the alliance will ultimately depend on Moscow’s attitude towards Beijing’s various ventures.
The commentary notes that there are four ways in which Xi and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin are joining hands to combat the United States.
Lastly, China and Russia are also looking to penetrate the US “backyard” of Latin American markets. Xi and Putin both attended the BRICS summit in Brazil last July, after which Xi embarked on a tour of Argentina, Venezuela and Cuba. According to the Global Times, it was Xi’s way of telling Washington that if it meddles with Chinese business in Asia, China will interfere in US affairs in South America.
