The Chinese would be perfectly happy if Russia and the United States destroyed each other. Germany and Russia did more than conduct war games with each other, they had a "treaty" and helped destroy Poland.

All I'm saying is that the Russians and the Iranians sticking it to Israel and the US is OK with China. But I don't think that there is much love between the Soviets and the Chinese. Never has been and never will be. Each thugocracy is out for its own. The Russians don't like the Chinese and the Chinese hate the Russians for a number of reasons. Like , not supporting Mao in Korea, the Demansky Island and other perceived Russian "land grabs", they make sure the people have been propagandized against the Russians.

The Russians have a similar problem with the Chinese but not the financial muscle the USA has. The Chinese make and sell tons of stuff to the Russians cheaply and buy weapons and other incidentals all while under cutting the Russian economy.

The Russians have oil in the ground but are not developing it as quickly as is needed and I suspect that the Chinese would sure like to "share" the oil finds and lands currently in Russian hands.

Of course I could be wrong and we should all just figure out how to get a better NCAA bracket for next year, like TOFUS. Instead of trying to shore up allies in the region while the Chinese and Russians gobble up Venezuela and every other latin sh#thole in South America.

On that we agree.

From the Sino-Russian Joint Statement of April 23, 1997:
"The two sides [China and Russia] shall, in the spirit of partnership, strive to promote the multipolarization of the world and the establishment of a new international order."

From Heritage.org:
"Joint war games are a logical outcome of the Sino-Russian Friendship and Cooperation Treaty signed in 2001, and reflect the shared worldview and growing economic ties between the two Eastern Hemisphere giants."

Russia's Leaders See China as Template for Ruling
New York Times ^ | October 17, 2009 | CLIFFORD J. LEVY

MOSCOW — Nearly two decades after the collapse of the Communist Party, Russia’s rulers have hit upon a model for future success: the Communist Party.

Or at least, the one that reigns next door.

Like an envious underachiever, Vladimir V. Putin’s party, United Russia, is increasingly examining how it can emulate the Chinese Communist Party, especially its skill in shepherding China through the financial crisis relatively unbowed.

United Russia’s leaders even convened a special meeting this month with senior Chinese Communist Party officials to hear firsthand how they wield power. ..."

“The accomplishments of China’s Communist Party in developing its government deserve the highest marks,” Aleksandr D. Zhukov, a deputy prime minister and senior Putin aide, declared at the meeting with Chinese officials on Oct. 9
