Ex-Trump adviser: Russia-China alliance poses a real problem for the West

The alliance between Russia and China is a real problem for the West. And it will continue regardless of how the situation around the Ukrainian conflict develops.

This opinion was expressed by John Bolton, former adviser to former US President Donald Trump, in an interview with the British newspaper The Telegraph.

I think that a Russia-China axis is being formed, to which Iran and North Korea adjoin

Bolton suggested, proposing to pay close attention to the geography of the emerging alliance.

The former high-ranking official is alarmed that Beijing and Moscow are calling the emerging format of bilateral cooperation an "alliance without borders." He calls on the Western elites to take this seriously, predicting big problems for them in connection with the strengthening of ties between Russia and China.

Mentioning Xi Jinping's trip to Moscow, Bolton urged Western countries to strengthen their security.

Trump's former adviser also said that Beijing has provided significant support to Russia from the very beginning of the special operation conducted by Russia. He claims that the Chinese nuclear weapon threatens the United States, and China itself is an existential threat to the United States. In other words, the very existence of a strong and independent Chinese state poses a danger to America.

Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Moscow from March 20 to 23. This was his first trip abroad since being re-elected to office.

      There can be only one counter answer to this bolt - "The United States and the Anglo-Saxon countries are a constant threat to the rest of the world. To eliminate this threat, all countries of the world that are not included in the circle indicated above must unite and inflict such damage on the United States and the Anglo-Saxon countries that in the next for ten thousand years they have been busy only licking the wounds inflicted on them and restoring their economy.In general, the conclusion is - "Let's drive the US and the Anglo-Saxon countries into the Stone Age!!!" good

      You’ll be driven here, when even the farewell words of S and PU are alarming:

      Xi: "Now there is a change that has not happened for 100 years. When we are together, we are driving this change"
      Putin: "I agree"
      Si: "Take care of yourself, dear friend"
      Putin: Have a good trip.

    The real threat to the West is their own life under the laws of the animal world and the desire to occupy the highest place in the global food chain. Disguised by hypocritical smiles and ostentatious respectability.

      I think the West is to blame for the fact that Russia and China are getting closer and closer.
      They were simply left with no other way.
      NATO supports Russia from the west, Japan and the USA from the east. Islamism in the south.
      They do not want to allow China to develop even more, wherever they can, they put spokes in the wheels. Another problem with Taiwan does not give anyone peace.
      How will all this end?

        everything can be simple. The United States specifically forces its opponents to assemble an alliance, so that later with their alliance to start a world war, in the hope of defeating all opponents and finally seizing the land.

      And just one statement that China will enter the war on the side of the Russian Federation is enough to end it.

    And what is the news here?)) It is clear that the cooperation between the Russian Federation and China is shaking their house with a pipe. Do not forget the founding fathers of such a science as geopolitics: Speakman, Mackinder. They laid down general provisions in science, including the concepts of Heartland and Rimland. The principle of preventing the rapprochement of continental powers, including the USSR (Russia) with Germany, for example. Moreover, Speakman died in 1914, when the same China did not even have a hint of a regional power, but he predicted China's rise to the level of a world power and the subsequent increase in cooperation with the Russian Federation. Well, the man's logic worked. Because Russia and Germany are constantly trying to piss * off.
    Now Russia and China are quite regional continental powers, albeit at different levels. Of course, increased cooperation greatly shakes the influence of the West in the Heartland area itself, and poses a potential threat to influence in Rimland. According to Mackinder, whoever has influence on the Heartland is the hegemon; according to Speekman, hegemony is given by influence on the Rimland (a zone surrounding the Heartland region).

    The West is a corporation for robbing other people's bowels. They are completely sure that the resources of this planet should be completely enough only for them and for the rest, according to the residual principle. The output-west must be destroyed.
