An ocean away, the Atlantic that is, and so I kind of being ignorant to what is really going on in the Middle East. Still, I’m surprised to see China is now sending military advisers to Syria so China can aid Bashar al-Assad in fighting against the rebels and other extremists. Meanwhile, Russia is bombing the extremists (i.e., ISIS/ISIL) in Syria from Iran’s military airbase. Putting these facts together, it’s now clear that China is joining in to help Russia, Iran, and Syria in fighting against the rebels and extremists that are trying to collapse Bashar al-Assad’s government. Lately though, it seems that the ISIS/ISIL forces are being scattered and being stamped out of Syria, because Russia is still stepping up to drive these forces out of Syria.
Since China’s economy keeps on growing, it needs energy supplies such as oil from the Middle East to secure Chinese future, and so China is going against one of the creeds that China has always held dear most — which is not to interfere with internal matters of another country or region. Furthermore, China is looking to realize the grand plan of connecting Europe and everything in between to China through the One Belt One Road (or Silk Road) initiative/project. With such a grand plan, China needs the Middle East to calm down much more to ensure the safety of the people, companies, and whatever that are involving in developing and realizing the grand Silk Road project.
Since China is now slowly forming a coalition with Russia and Iran, I wonder how Europe is going to react to this. China is key in Russia’s plan, because China is a very big business partner of most countries in Europe. The United States may have her plate full from now on, because Europe could decide to be less helpful to the United States since China is now joining in the Middle East’s mess. If things keep on getting escalating, I think Europe would have less appetite in seeing business with China goes sour, because we’re talking about peace and prosperity in long term here. Still, Europe could also decide to help the United States fight against China/Russia/Iran coalition, because Europe has a special relationship with the United States.
Whatever the case, it’s bad for the United States, because the United States is still supporting the rebels — who are trying to collapse the government of Bashar al-Assad’s regime. Check out the video right after the break to see the news on China joined up with Bashar al-Assad’s regime to fight off ISIS/ISIL and the rebels.
