Russia And China To Form Alliance Against United States?

Last week, a top Chinese diplomat voiced support for Russia against the Western powers in the Ukraine conflict. China’s ambassador to Belgium, Qu Xing, asked the West to “abandon the zero-sum mentality” with Russia. A survey conducted in Russia shows that Russians are more afraid of the U.S. than the Islamic State. Another survey by Pew Research Center reveals that China regards the U.S. as its biggest threat.

Russia And China To Form Alliance Against United States?

Russia and China have many differences

So, a big question is how likely are China and Russia to form an alliance against the United States? Huiyun Feng of The Diplomat says that the Russia-China partnership will largely depend on the relations these nations have with the United States. Last year, Beijing inked a landmark 30-year-long $400 billion gas deal with Moscow. The two countries have been partnering at an unprecedented scale: politically, economically, and militarily.

Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping both are strong leaders. Xi has taken strong positions over the South China Sea and East China Sea disputes. Vladimir Putin has been extremely aggressive over eastern Ukraine and Crimea. But there are still some big differences. Though neither of them likes the Western world order dominated by the United States, they do not share the vision of a new world order, says Feng.

Russia is going through huge economic difficulties due to economic sanctions imposed by the West. But Kremlin has made it pretty clear that what they need is Beijing’s diplomatic support rather than economic assistance. Further, Russia’s energy deals with many Asian countries, including Vietnam, have made China uncomfortable.

Russia and China may form a formal alliance if…

Kremlin fears that China’s ambitious “New Silk Road economic corridor” across Central Asia will be a threat to Russia’s geopolitical influence in the region. Russia’s military cooperation with Vietnam, which has disputes with China, has not gone down well with the world’s most populous country. Since 2009, Russia has supplied three Kilo-class submarines to Vietnam, which are far more advanced that submarines it has sold to China.

Feng says it’s too early to term China-Russia relationship either as an “alliance” or “partnership.” The bilateral relation still lacks common identity and mutual trust. But a big common threat from the Western countries could push Russia and China to move closer. The United States has been pushing hard on Ukraine, NATO expansion toward Russia; and has been rebalancing against China. If the U.S. pushes too hard against them both, they may form a formal alliance, despite all the differences. So, it is largely in the hands of the U.S. policymakers.

    The World forgets the fact that both China and Russia are really big countries. I seriously doubt that the U.S. and its allies could cover those whole countries to destroy their weapons making capabilities. Russia/China aren’t going to sit by and let NATO/U.S. just walk in or fly in and take out targets without a horrendous fight. The U.S. has even run out of bombs to carry out its bombing campaign in the Middle East. The Russian and Chinese people are people who are more physical than the U.S. people, which means that in a face-to-face confrontation, the more physical person will have the upper hand. The U.S. likes to use machines to do their fighting. What happens if Russia and China are successful in cutting off the Middle East Oil? China has the capability to knock out the U.S. satellites which allow the U.S. to monitor troop and equipment movements. These same satellites also provide GPS capabilities used to target their weapons.

    S.C.O is a structure for not just Russia and China alliance, but the entire east and central Asia. The U.S is often racist towards Asian men in their own country, this sends a very strong anti America signal to the next generation of Asians. Imagine how you would feel if you studies in the states and found out American media is depicting your race as weak and nerdy while at the same time promote fetish for your women? Or how about walking in China and see ugly white losers no one wants from America going to China to molest the local women?
    I believe the new generation of Chinese men deeply hate the white west, and this will push them closer to anyone who are anti west. This is all their own doing.
