China & Russia hooking up

It was not reported in most of the media, but China has signed an agreement of co-operation with the Russian army yesterday.

Its roumerd that Russia will support China if there is a confrontation with America and Vice versa for Russia.

A good thing or a bad thing you decide

Good thing or bad thing, hmmm. I guess it really depends on your point of view. I for one see it as a positive developement that will reduce the chances of war. War in this day and age is waged against countries that can be isolated from the world. With this new development isolating China or Russia becomes that much more difficult which lessens the odds of a major war in the future.

Hooking up?

These two have given each other circle jerks for a long time.

It is completly meaningless. It serves no purpose other than a publicity stunt.

And along with the military excersises they held (or are holding?) last week, it is most of all a marketing stunt of Russia to sell its arms to China (Russia is already China's main supplier of arms). It is true that both regional powers have the same interest (deminishing the US' growing influence in Asia) but most experts agree that there is absolutely no chance it could come to a real military cooperation between th etwo.

We can bomb the world to pieces, but we can't bomb it into peace!

IMO I think this is a great thing, why? I think there always needs to be checks and balances in the world stage. The US right now is the dominant force, but needs a similar force to restrain it. IF the Chinesse-Russo deal is for real it means a the rise of 2 superpowers again.

I happen to believe this one is for real, China will not start a war with the US for economic reasons, but the US could strike China especially if the situation in Taiwan esclates.

There is no way USA would attack either Russia or China, only some deluded people on the net could claim that. This deal would also change nothing in any Taiwan situation as that would never mean an American invasion of China and Russia would never meddle in that. In that case it is China being the aggressor, no US president would be so deranged that he would seriously consider attack China.

Neither (or both depending on how you look at it) is really shit scared of the other, currently USA is the only one of them capable of a offensive war though. Obviously they would never consider it since it would be way way to costly to sustain and they have nothing to win on it.

Well I too think its a good thing to have a rival agains the US who are bullying their way through the world atm. If this co-operation is really what we think it is then I agree and would actually go as far as saying that there might be less wars.

Good thing that Iran is being helped by Russia for their uranium enrichment project. I'm not pro war or nuclear person but I feel its good that Iran have/or atleat claim to have one. To atleast make the Bush administration think twice.

2Pac Masale, China getting superstrong and rich is a good thing, especially for Somalia when you consider all that stuff under the sands

(If China is drilling, Somalia is untouchable and potentially a Norway of Africa if you go on the studies done by the World Bank just before the civil war)
