US ‘large-scale’ military exercises cannot scare China, Russia: Global Times editorial

An F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet takes off on the deck of the US Navy USS Ronald Reagan in the South China Sea on Tuesday. China is allowing a US Navy aircraft carrier and its battle group to make a port call in Hong Kong Special Administrative Region after it turned down similar request in September.

Russian troops to operate modern PLA equipment for 1st time in joint exercise, ‘shows mutual trust’

Chinese and Russian troops have been eagerly preparing for the upcoming Zapad/Interaction-2021 exercise in China, with the participating Russian servicemen provided with modern weapons and equipment of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) for the first time in a move Chinese experts said displays high level of mutual trust and will enhance joint combat capabilities of the two militaries.

Neither Russia nor China wants war. The belligerent is the US, as it almost always is. If the US does start a war against them in the Pacific, I hope that they will send every one of the ships belonging to that piratical aggressor’s navy down to Davy Jones’ locker.

If Trump ever manages to get back in the WH, that humongous ego of his will definitely spark WWIII, if Biden manages to avoid one, out of fear not common sense. The timing will be about right too, reaching its crescendo. God help us all.

Trump does have a big Ego, but he did everything he could to avoid WWIII, which the Deep State, the Military Industrial Complex and the Dems seem to crave. Biden is doing nothing to avoid one, and it has nothing to do with either fear or common sense. He simply does as he is told by the warmongers.

I tend to agree with Helga here. I doubt Trump would want to go to war to help the Taiwanese. What would be in it for America? He understands that the US Navy is a status symbol and not something to be used in combat. The Biden/Obama/Clinton crowd on the other hand can be seduced by the Neocons. Anyway, the Taiwanese will realize quickly that they can be just as happy as the people in Hong Kong and Macau with a special status and without the riots fueled by the West.

Biden won’t know whether he’s avoiding WWIII or not. He is probably unaware of most things that are going on in the world these days.

If I understand this correctly, if humanity survives the next 5 years then it will be saved because then Russia and China will be so strong that the West will no longer be in a position to attack them. But if war breaks out in the East or South China Sea before that time, the Chinese may well sink an aircraft carrier with a hypersonic missile and a nuclear war might begin. The historian Arnold Toynbee said that in a way many civilisations have a tendency to commit suicide. Let’s hope humanity doesn’t. The Sicilian Expedition of the ancient seafaring… Read more »

It’s in no position to attack them now, unless you consider suicide a viable foreign policy.

China has no desire to attack them now. Why would they? It’s the US that’s on a suicidal mission. Neither China nor Russia are. The US, by being in constant attack mode, has forced China and Russia to build up their defenses.

I wonder sometimes whether the US knows how to be in anything other than attack mode. It has been at war for all but 16 years of its entire existence (the grand total of 244 years), so at this point it’s warmongering is probably genetic.

Barrister of Europe, conviently leaving out Western Powers in recent Euro Asian video, attempt to correct The Barrister of Europe ( or at that time had been progressed into another form of affluence) failed.

I thought you have no idea what your rambling on about and your statement about Macron being a wise leader proved my point.

Yes, it’s pretty much about size envy. The US simply cannot stand that Russia and China are allied and more powerful together than is the US (even though it was the US that drove them into each other’s arms), and it finds China’s economic success totally galling (even though it was the rapacious US multi-nationals taking advantage of China’s cheap labour that initiated it). Hence the adolescent US mission to “contain” China. What arrogance!
