In this early years of the 21st century, we know that superpower countries won’t go to war against each other, because they all got nuclear weapons. Of course, I hope I’m right about this, because it could be a disaster for humankind if superpowers do go all out against one another. Anyway, the United States is facing a real challenge as Russia and China team up ever closer to carve out more influence in the world. The United States of course wants to stay number one and dictate the direction of the world’s trajectory, but Russia and China are not playing the United States’ game. Just recently, Russia and China carried out huge military exercise in South China Sea. The video right after the break demonstrates how China and Russia team up in military trainings and efforts. The video is in a 360 degree panorama format, and so you can use your mouse to press and hold on the onscreen arrows in the video to watch the video in 360 degree, both horizontally and vertically.
Something big is happening under the surface, but we have no idea what is going on. Basically, security-intelligence.org’s article “DEBKAfile Exclusive Report: A Chinese aircraft carrier docks at Tartus to support Russian-Iranian military buildup” suggests that China’s aircraft carrier Liaoning has docked at Syrian port Tartus to back the Russians up on building up forces in Syria for fighting against ISIS. I’m not very well informed with the Middle East and Syria situations at all, but this news tells me that united force building of Russia, China, and Iran in this region prepares for something big. Perhaps, fighting ISIS is only a piece of the puzzle, because ISIS isn’t strong enough to encourage China, Russia and Iran to combine forces and take actions in this region. Without China in the picture, I think the overall picture of the Syrian conflict was murky but somewhat clearer than how it’s now. Meanwhile, China is cooperating with the United States in boosting trades and agreeing on cyber security. Nonetheless, geopolitically, China is helping out Russia and Iran in securing Bashar Assad’s power in Syria.
