Russia says da! Da! While the Chinese say, yeah baby, we knew the Ruskys would do anything for $$$$$!!!

Two peas in a pod, both obsessed with controlling domestic populations and current/former territories.

Especially with European EU having economic problem, Putin and Russia has to look at China and Japan for increase in revenue. Near Siberia, over 100 million Chinese are living close to the border, but at the same time, only 6.5 million Russians live there. China will be providing labor and materials to build pipelines and infastructure to ship the raw materials. China desperately needs Russian oil and natural gas since they will be importing 80 percent of the oil by 2030. If it goes will, it will be win sitution for Russians. Maybe Japan will be left behind on major deals with the Russians.

The Chinese leader representing the gratitutes of Chinese people by laying a wealth on the 'unknown heros' tomb, for those Soviet servicemen who fought for China against Japanese aggression in 1939 and 1945! Also those soviet airmen who fought in North Korea skies against US aggression 1950-1953! Together we stand!

Russian arms officials say they have recently signed a tentative deal with China to deliver of a batch of Russian Su-35 fighter jets.

This is definately a good news!

This does not sound like a positive long-term development. A Sino-Soviet block would polarize a US-Japan-maybe South Korea block. North Korea being the uncle with toys in the attic. I think the region is best served by less polarization, but with established nation-friends.

Is this lavish reception OK with Russian taxpayers?

I have a feeling that 75% of the people that live on the Korean Peninsula would disagree with you.

outweighs US-Japan alliance by a huge margin.

There will never be a Sino-Russian grand alliance.

China lusts after the Russian Far East as much as the East and South China Seas, but knows Russia would respond with a nuclear attack.

Putin wants to rebuild Russia and its satellites into a new 'Soviet' Union, but minus the communism.

Their only parallel interest is in weakening the West.

Putin told the ITAR-Tass news agency that relations between Moscow and Beijing were helping to “shape a new, more just world order.”

Quote of the year so far.

Oh I don't know, I quite like the idea that there's a counterbalance to American hegemony in the region. America continues to act like an imperial power with bases all over the world, and keeps on spouting Cold War rhetoric against both Russia and China. Quite natural that Russia and China would want to strengthen themselves against aggression.

Balance of world powers is good for man provide that every party wouldn't resort to war.

And thats why the sale of Russia's state of the art fighter,the Su35 to China is a reply to America provides amarment in the pacific region! There was no explanation but kicking up hostility in east asia when US is selling stealth fighter to japan and Australia!

There is no balance of power with corrupt nations. These two sons of anarchy will surely be trouble for USA and Japan.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

I don't know why China keeps saying USA to contain them while USA keeps moving jobs and investing in China and has a trade deficit with China over $200 billions a year. If USA really wants to that, US never let that happen...Just my humble thought.....☺

Russia has a better chance of being less evil than China. But its only because of Putin trying to get back the glory days of one dictatorship.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

The Russians certainly will back China as long as China keeps buying. But history has shown when push comes to shove Russia will always do what's best for itself regardless of any agreement or treaty with others. Russia always has and always will trust only itself.

Finally China has receieved the green light from Moscow to acquire the most desired Su35 fighter in such a a critical moment! The risk and the escalation for of an all out war with Japan since last September has paid off! May those planes in good use and good hunting! There is nothing more important than the race of 'air power'! The Russians may not feel interest with the struggle between China and Japan but all Chinese people will appreciates President Putin has leab out an arm to help China fighting for her honour and sovereignity!

I have no data for how much US are investing in China, as for the trade deficit, US just need to issue treasury bonds to exchange for the goods and services provided by China, I think it is a good deal for US, all it have to do is switch on the printing machine for US notes and bonds.

That doesnt mean America holds 'NO HOSTILITIES' against China, their nuclear threatening has begun since the Korean war period! By the way, the struggle between China and US is a stragetic one especially in the decline of US after her wars in Iraq and Afghanistan but the struggle between China and Japan is a long and deep 'racial one'! China and the former Soviet Union's struggle was a political ideology one but now irrelevant with the Russian federation!

Not likely. It's just the usual animated way in which Chinese people speak when they're earnestly pushing propaganda...
