Below is our translation of an article from planet-today.ru with commentary and notes [in brackets] by Vince Dhimos.
You know, I can’t think of anything more downright stupid than antagonizing the two military, diplomatic and economic powers Russia and China even as their star rises and the West’s sets. You do realize -- do you not? -- that two separate US “experts,” writing for Bloomberg, both recommended preparing for war with not only one of these powers but both!
Further, according to The Nation, the Pentagon is also bracing for a conflict that would pit the US against China and Russia. Its brainless calculations completely ignore the possibility of what such a conflict would inevitably turn into – ie, a nuclear war that would kill most of us. So far, none of the big boys has stumbled across that notion of just stopping the provocation.
The EU can no longer keep itself together, as none less than EU admirer George Soros himself admitted, and the US, well, it still labours under that unwieldy national debt that was $22 trillion when I started writing this sentence but God knows what astronomical heights it will have reached before I finish this article. And this deeply indebted US just can’t keep its hands off the war button. It’s an addiction. And many Americans believe God will protect it from its stupidity because that is in fact its only hope. The image of Major Kong in the film "Dr. Strangelove" comes to mind (click on link above).
I keep getting this sneaking feeling that the guys in Washington and Wall Street who hold the strings of power are actually intentionally doing everything in their power to bring down the American house of cards. Yet, how could that be?
And somehow I just can’t get Paul’s words out of my head:
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
I will always believe that Satan has his headquarters in Washington, DC. What other explanation can there be?
The Russia-China alliance: made in the West
June 14, 2019
The Western press is horrified: China is moving away from the US toward Russia. The leaders of the United States and the EU are so accustomed to singing their own praises and poking at Russia, that they did not immediately notice how Beijing was offended by them. The process of "divorcing" China from the United States accelerated in 2014 - just when the Crimean Curtain fell between Moscow and the Western world.
The rapprochement of Russia and China: most recently no one believed that an alliance between these countries was possible. After the economic forum in St. Petersburg, Bloomberg and the National Interest began to write about it as a fait accompli.
There is an alliance in the economy: the trade turnover of Russia and China has reached 108 billion dollars, exceeding the once targeted mark of 100 billion.
There is an alliance in politics: the Russian and Chinese military conduct joint exercises not only in Asia, but also in the Baltic Sea and in the Arctic Ocean.
Xi Jinping guaranteed unity of power in China under his leadership for many years to come. He declared President Putin the closest friend. The process of this rapprochement was not simultaneous. At first, Xi wanted to be friends with the United States. But in 2014, during the Crimean events, the then American president started a quarrel between his country and China, and prior to Putin’s trip to Beijing, staged a trip to ASEAN countries that are China’s neighbours, and greatly fear its power. And Trump, with his rudeness and trade wars, only completed the long-running process [note to those who think Putin is pro-Trump: read that sentence, by a Russian commentator, once more]. And since the US and the EU are dealing with even less “grace” with Russia, the rapprochement between Beijing and Moscow was the result of Western actions. In this context, many are calling for the restoration of Western relations not only with China, but also with Russia.
As a result, Obama and Trump have achieved the opposite of President Nixon’s achievement in the early 1970s. Nixon was able to normalize relations with the Stalin-like politician Mao Zedong - for the sake of isolating the USSR. Obama and Trump, having in their hands huge trading advantages, have managed to antagonize China. Now Russia is close to repeating Nixon's success: making friends with China and refocusing on its economic activity, leaving the United States isolated.
