On the Way to a China - Russia Alliance

Post by Sertorio » Fri Aug 05, 2022 5:36 am

China weighs in on ‘strategic cooperation’ with Russia
https://www.rt.com/news/560292-china-ru ... bal-order/

China wants to work more closely with Russia to defend the global order based on international law, Foreign Minister Wang Yi has said.

The statement comes amid growing tensions between Beijing and Washington following US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.

“Russia has been consistently upholding the ‘one-China’ principle, standing against any encroachments on our country’s sovereignty,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said after talks with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov in Cambodia on Friday.

“Beijing is ready to strengthen strategic cooperation with the Russian Federation so we could more effectively defend an international system where the UN would play the key role, and an order based on the norms of international law.”

Wang’s remarks come in the wake of tensions sparked by Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan this week. Beijing considers the self-governed island as part of its territory and strongly opposes any form of recognition of Taipei as an independent nation.
The idiotic US policies are bringing a formal alliance between China and Russia increasingly closer. In other words, the US is generating what it most fears, a military alliance between the two countries which can defeat it. It would be difficult to be more stupid than this...

Russia is not China's ally, it is China's petrol station. Everything else is bla bla bla.

Besides, if you want to talk about stupid geopolitics, nothing ranks higher than Putin galvanizing opposition to his regime and support for NATO in the West through his ham-fisted invasion of Ukraine.

Don't you ever get a nagging feeling that you are being incredibly silly when you say such things? To try and belittle Russia doesn't make it small, it makes you petty minded...

And I assure you that Russia couldn't care less about support for NATO in the West. The majority of people in the world support Russia, not NATO...

Nope. But nice attempt to play the reverse card on who says silly things around here. Do I have to trot out that Saul Alinsky quote yet again?

I didn't belittle Russia, I said that the Putin regime has made a serious geopolitical error by invading Ukraine.

An odd thing to say now, when that's been your justification for Russia's campaign of murder and destruction in Ukraine.

"Russia is not China's ally, it is China's petrol station."

Is that the only way you have of saying that "the Putin regime has made a serious geopolitical error by invading Ukraine?"

The problem is not NATO enjoying some support in the West, is NATO trying to tyrannize the rest of the world.

So what? You yourself backed down from the claim of a close relationship between the two.

I know you get confused when you have to respond to something that's longer than a single sentence, but the other sentence was this:

"Besides, if you want to talk about stupid geopolitics, nothing ranks higher than Putin galvanizing opposition to his regime and support for NATO in the West through his ham-fisted invasion of Ukraine."

Galvanizing opposition to Putin's regime and support for NATO in the West!...

That's one of your funniest statements! Opposition to Putin in Russia is practically nonexistent, and outside Russia is only seen among the western oligarchs and their vassals. As to support for NATO is slowly fading away among the common people, who will only be galvanized by inflation, economic depression, unemployment, and shortage of gas to keep them warm through the coming winter...All of which are due to the idiotic sanctions against Russia...

You, like most Americans, have no idea of what the world is like. For you the world is a large plantation to be exploited by you, and the rest of us only exist to serve you. Well, that fantasy is about to end. Russia and China will take care of that.

Ah yes, the predictable anti-American bluster you emit when you get caught making things up.
