Media: the West should be wary of the Russian-Chinese "colossus"

29
The actions of Vladimir Putin in Syria and the strengthening of ties between Beijing and Moscow require the West to understand the further development of relations between countries, which ultimately can lead to the creation of a powerful “Eurasian colossus,” American professor Lyle Goldstein writes in his article for National Interest.


Media: the West should be wary of the Russian-Chinese "colossus"


"Over the past few years, analysts have been skeptical about the possibility of building strong relationships between Russia and China, but today this approach needs to be reconsidered," the newspaper quoted Goldstein Look.

“The signs of a steadily growing partnership between Russia and China are quite clearly visible,” the author is convinced, recalling the reciprocal visits of the leaders of the countries to the Victory Parades, which emphasizes the “common history suffering from catastrophic losses in the immense fire of the Second World War ".

In his opinion, in the West they begin to understand that actions taken against the Russian Federation after the development of the Ukrainian crisis only bring together the positions of Moscow and Beijing and "can result in a full-fledged military-political alliance."

While “Chinese diplomats stick to the classical Chinese stratagem“ To be on the top of the mountain and watch the tigers fight ”.” But do not deceive yourself, because "The history shows many examples of a very high level of cooperation between the Russian Federation and China."

“A double combination of“ rebalancing ”in tandem with the fact that the West is still developing a strategic response to the Ukrainian crisis may be enough to reinforce the geopolitical significance of the Eurasian counterweight,” Goldstein concludes.

    In the West, it simply does not occur to anyone that one can be friends not against someone, but simply so that their country develops peacefully, collaborating with others. They have only one theme: - alliances, unions, associations against others, to establish regimes loyal to them, to capture markets and pump out natural resources.
    Russia and China will only gain more by developing economic cooperation and supporting each other in the political sphere in the international arena.

              In confirmation of your words, I will name the figure that the USSR invested in the development of China: 84 billion then full-fledged Soviet rubles. The figure is official.

                Everything is right here - and without the USSR, I would not have risen to my China

                And now, if it weren’t for China, balancing forces in the Far East and in the world, it would be harder for Russia and for all of us

                Definitely. that “unspoken” unions are operating now — that is, in order not to annoy the USA and Europe — the “masters of the world” —the official alliance is not signed and military blocs are not formally created (OKKB is possible - t this is our "legitimate" - as if fragments of the USSR got the right for some kind of integration)

                But the alliances of Russia with Iran by China by the Bolivarian countries are completely "unofficial" - that is, they are not signed - they are not declared - they are not "de jure" but they are "de facto"

              Theoretically imagine what would happen if the Japanese (Hitler’s allies) were not stuck in China .... In 1939, on the Halingol, the Japanese felt the prospective direction of the strike, not the Far East, but Mongolia, there are steppes, not taiga and swamps ..., way out to Kazakhstan, the Volga ....

        The main thing is that they do not begin to supply opium to China again. And then the Chinese are bored again, but do we need it? smile

          So far, "Chinese diplomats adhere to the classic Chinese strategy" To be on top of a mountain and watch tigers fight "."
          Maybe they would continue to be observed if it were not for the boorish behavior of one torn cat, which strives to spoil all sneakers to which it reaches.
          China cannot get anywhere from Russia, after all, the neighbors. And if we are good neighbors, the cat will not save nine lives.

          The Chinese themselves can produce large quantities of opium and buy cheaply in Afghanistan and from other producers in Southeast Asia. But the matter is not in drugs, but in the fact that China has begun to buy up the largest and most famous companies in Great Britain. In the hands of the Chinese is Jaguar , it seems Lotus. Specifically, you can get acquainted on economic sites.

        So this is how to look: after all, this is a game against Russia - the British (Rothschilds) need to divide us with China and the pragmatism of our Chinese "friendship partners" is chosen as the basis for this

          I agree with you. It is this that is the main danger * of friendship * with China. And at the same time, China also fears close hugs and arrogant Saxons and Americans. Yes, and what kind of friendship is in politics.

      China is on its mind and so far is only abstaining in the UN Security Council, but as the Western and star-eared ears have nothing to blame, if the muzzle itself is curved, we did not impose sanctions against the West, but they are against us, not we set fire to the door of our neighbor, but they staged a maidan in Ukraine and still want us to be malleable hamsters, let them go and eat a dead horse in the ravine to call the territory 404, please do not confuse with us which we lost, and let the liberal traitors be taken away. No faith from me star-striped hegemons, nor depraved Europe, I have faith in myself. But with China we are all the same in good relations, but the ears are at the top.

    This is the east, and with the east you have to be on your guard. In the meantime, let the West worry, it is necessary to cooperate and make friends with those with whom it is beneficial to our country in the first place.

      With the East, you should always be on your guard. The Chinese, Japanese and other Asians have a different mentality. They are patient as cats and will wait for your mistake for a long time. Example of this: how the Japanese hammer Russia about the Kuril Islands.

        Of course, you shouldn’t forget, especially considering the unreliability of * friendship * with China. But China is a neighbor (and, in my opinion, the only one) with whom we did not have a full-scale war. This also needs to be taken into account. They can * throw a friend *, but fight hardly with us.

    history repeats itself. Let us recall the times when the headlines of newspapers were full of ... Chinese and Russian friends for a century or centuries ... but they were dissatisfied and we were eaten in a glass with Chinese tea and Russian vodka. And they also say that when the Communist Party bribes they didn’t take it. Here and the whole conclusion with long-playing consequences.

    "Xi Jinping said that Beijing and Moscow should" strongly support each other ..... "To the West, the alliance of Russia and China in any form seems a threat, and they in every way naturally counteract this. Because the combination of efforts is beneficial to us and not beneficial to them.

    China has a powerful economic and resource component and China is developing rapidly and is still striving to acquire the latest technologies, including in military affairs, therefore it is striving for "friendship" with everyone, including Russia, if it feels that something can be taken everything’s new from a partner, everything else is only within the framework of market relations, and there’s never a freebie here, otherwise you can say friendship is friendship, but the tobacco is apart, because you shouldn’t be especially deceived, yes, we are also glad to cooperate with China, but also only...
