Amid reports that China accuses the U.S. of illegally entering the South China Sea, U.S. hawks and military strategists worry that Russia’s close ties with China could evolve into a powerful military alliance against the U.S.

American geostrategists have noted the alarming rate at which Moscow and Beijing are strengthening their ties, while some U.S. doubt that such an alliance, which is often called the ‘Eurasian colossus’, has anything to counter the U.S. with.

However, other Western military strategists are urging the world to do something about the growing threat of the constantly evolving Sino-Russian relations.

But it’s not just U.S. geostrategists who are analyzing their possible future enemies. According to Lyle J. Goldstein, Associate Professor in the China Maritime Studies Institute (CMSI) at the US Naval War College in Newport, Chinese analysts are busy analyzing Western reports about Beijing and Moscow.

“Signs of a steadily enhancing Russia-China partnership are quite readily visible. Reciprocal visits by the two Presidents to observe one another’s victory celebrations (and the conspicuous lack of Western leaders at either event) seemed to demonstrate a shared contemporary isolation as well as the common history of suffering catastrophic losses in the enormous conflagration of the Second World War,” Professor Goldstein noted in his article for The National Interest.

China and Russia have been sharing political interests ever since the NATO intervention in Libya in 2011, as noted by professor Goldstein, citing Chinese geostrategists. And then the Arab Spring as well as the Ukrainian crisis have accelerated the rapprochement process “tremendously,” professor said.

The professor noted that a major evidence of the Dragon and the Bear seeing one another as top allies is the fact that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s first trip abroad after assuming the Russian Presidency again in 2012 was China. And then Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Russia as part of his inaugural journey in 2013.

Professor Goldstein also noted that both Beijing and Moscow have a “legacy of hostility and mistrust” dating back from the mid-Cold War period. And the professor added that this mistrust may become a stumbling block in further Sino-Russian cooperation.

The U.S. underestimates Sino-Russian alliance – Chinese analysts

According to the professor, Western geostrategists neglect a number of important aspects of the relations between China and Russia, failing to realize the significance of some historical events involving the two nuclear powers.

For example, Goldstein refers to Chinese research, and notes that “in a chapter of WWII that is rarely discussed in the West, this article explains that Moscow did impressively provide China with almost 1,000 aircraft (and accompanying volunteer pilots) in the four years after the Nanjing Massacre in December 1937.”

Also, what’s largely neglected by U.S. analysts is the fact that the USSR played a crucial role in the emergence of the Chinese Communist Party and the establishment of the People’s Republic of China on October 1, 1949.

Back then, Soviet Russia supplied the Chinese Communists with weapons, hardware, technological and humanitarian aid in order to help the party win over the Kuomintang, which were supported by the U.S. diplomatically and militarily, during the Chinese Civil War.

Having analyzed Chinese research, the professor concluded that the Chinese regard U.S. analyses of China-Russia relations as “surficial in nature and also rather pessimistic.” Chinese analysts also noted that “the West is always aiming to ‘use China to pin down Russia and to employ Russia to pin down China …’,” Goldstein added.

“It is not at all clear, as is often suggested, that antagonism is the ‘natural state’ of affairs in China-Russia relations.  The dual combination of the ‘rebalance,’ in tandem with the West’s still evolving strategic response to the Ukraine Crisis, may yet prove sufficient to solidify a geopolitically significant Eurasian counterpoise,” the professor concluded in his article.

Chinese and Russian nuclear capabilities combined are deadly

ValueWalk reported in September that China, Russia and the U.S. are the top three conventionally military powerful countries in the world out of 126 countries, according to the Global Firepower (GFP) database.

The GFP database was formed by considering the total amount of arms a country has, its dependence on natural resources, the state of the country’s economy, defense budget spending, geography as well as 50 other factors.

But it’s the nuclear capabilities of the three countries that are usually compared by Western analysts in order to predict a possible outcome of a war between the U.S. against Russia and China.

China has about 250 total nuclear warheads, but even though the number seems insignificant – especially when compared to the U.S. and Russia – Beijing still presents a huge challenge to Washington due to its technological and military progress.

How likely is U.S. vs. Russia-China war?

Meanwhile, it’s ally – Russia – has 1,582 strategic warheads deployed on 515 ICBMs, SLBMs, and strategic bombers, according to the March 2015 New START numbers.

The Federation of American Scientists previously estimated that Russia possesses a few thousand non-deployed nuclear strategic warheads and nearly 2,000 tactical nuclear warheads. On top of that, additional 3,200 are awaiting dismantlement.

The U.S., which has seen worsening relations with both China and Russia, possesses 1,597 strategic nuclear warheads deployed on 785 ICBMs, SLBMs, and strategic bombers, according to the March 2015 New START numbers.

Meanwhile, the Federation of American Scientists stated that the U.S. has nearly 2,800 warheads in its non-deployed strategic arsenal as well as 500 warheads in the U.S. tactical nuclear arsenal.

And according to the U.S. State Department, the U.S. had as many as 4,717 active nuclear warheads as of September 30, 2014. Other warheads are retired and are awaiting dismantlement.

So amid the news that China is accusing the U.S. of illegally entering the disputed South China Sea, how likely is a war between Moscow and Beijing on one side, and Washington on the other side?

  1. It’ll have to take some tragic event in our human history for humans to open their eyes, I see. Humans would rather see blood shed they would rather kill each other. Then make amends with each other. Humans will be our own distruction. We our our greatest enemy. It’s sad really an no I don’t hold hands I work for a better future an a brighter tomorrow, you war addicted assholes will never understand, how much more we will achieve by working together, there plenty of other ways of fighting then kill each other. Such as what the romans did to satisfy they’re problems build a ring an duke it out, eventually killing each other, but safety measures should be taken in our time era so that lose of life isn’t a factor. Think of different ways instead of annihilation. God human’s are stupid an stubborn to their own beliefs if war didn’t settle shit in the past what the hell makes you think it will now? People only hold grudges then wait for when you are weak to strike back against you. It’s human logic an it’s the way you take advantage over someone. Humans will remain weak stupid an fragile to the bone and will never evolve into what they were meant to be. And that’s more! I won’t say being gods, cause we will never be able to reach that goal. But we can be MORE. Life some be a presious thing that everyone holds dear to themselves. Why? Cause everyday we wake up is a day we can do change our perspective our view of the world. Everyday we should be glad that we can see our families again everyday should mean something different to you, think of it this way if someone was hold a gun to your forehead you would be MORE concerned about whether you’ll wake up tomorrow or you would shit your pants like everyone does before they die. Life is should be presious to you! You should want to make a difference in the world we live in you should want this!

  2. The chinese sphere of influence are economic partnerships with sovereign countries in a win win situation like in Africa and extending free trade worldwide. And establishment of OBOR, AIIB, etc… You too, go hold hands and sit side by side with Sikmade and Dònovan A Brown and get yourself an Education.

  3. Russia and China could be like the US. But no, they want to be staunch dictatorships that want the world to be in their grip. Bad part is, most of their economies (mainly China) are on the verge of collapse. And the Russians are still recovering from the collapse of the Soviet Union. And Putin thinks that he can make threats to the US and get away with it? LOL! If his country is still weak from the Soviet Union, and he thinks he can attack the US just because he has China on his side, both of them are going to the S**t knocked out of them.

  4. Hmm is that why Obama ask the joint chiefs if they could guarantee that no American city would get nuked the answer of course was no, for many reasons including their subs one which by the way laid off Mexico for a month undetected.!!!

  5. They would have to make it through our “Navy” First to be honest we control the seas. If they do manage to make on US soil no only will the American people stand up an fight back but you’ll have to worry about not only the Army but the Coast Guard & the National Guard AND the freaken Marine Corp. And if the the the Air Force got involved you wouldn’t make it into the major cities. cause they are so heavily defended The “US” puts a lot of time into protecting its soil an making sure it’s protected. “Remember that” the American people are no joke, They will fight until they can’t anymore. IE: Good luck getting through the “Navy” but the fact of the matter is! WE SHOULDN’T”T BE FIGHTING OURSELVES! WE NEED TO REALIZE THAT WE ARE ALL THE SAME! WE SHOULD BE WORKING TOGETHER IN TANDEM! ALL OF US! NOT TRYING TO KILL EACH OTHER! I”M SICK OF HAVING TO WAKE UP AN WORRY IF OUR GOVERNMENTS ARE MAKING A SMART OF SERIOUSLY STUPID DECISION THAT COULD KILL EVERYONE! INSTEAD OF FIGHTING EACH OTHER! WE SHOULD BE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW WE ARE GOING TO SAVE OUR PLANET FIRST! BEFORE WE ALL KNOW IT! WE WILL ALL BE UNDERWATER WHEN THOSE ICECAPS MELT! WE MORE PLAGUES AN DISEASES START TO SURFACE! WE NEED TO BE MORE FOCUSED ON REACHING THE STARS! INSTEAD OF FOCUSING OUR ANGER ON EACH OTHER FOCUS UR ANGER ON THE THINGS THAT WE DONT KNOW ABOUT! AS FOOLISH AS IT SOUNDS WE ARE IN 1 SINGLE UNIVERSE! IF YOU DENY THE FACT THAT THERE ISN”T MORE LIFE IN A DIFFERENT GALAXY YOUR SELFISH AN SINGLE MINDED! WE SHOULD BE FIGHTING WHATEVER IS OUT THERE! …for the love of all that stand for justice an freedom. we need to work together an a people. as a group there needs to be a point in which everyone see that we will only do more harm than good if we keep fighting ourselves? hasn’t the past taught us nothing!? WAR ISN’T ALWAYS THE ANSWER! together if the the human race would work together we would achieve GREATNESS! OUR GREATEST MINDING WORKING IN TANDEM?! DO YOU KNOW WE WOULD ALREADY HAVE A CURE OF CANCER! A SOLUTION TO WORLD HUNGRY! WE WOULD BE INVINCIBLE AS A RACE! We would already be colonizing other worlds! we would be more advanced! MONEY?! are you kidding MONEY WOULDN’T BE A FACTOR ANYMORE! it would be only the people, the people that work for a better future! a future where we could live in happiness a future of no stricken diseases WE MIGHT EVEN CURE DEATH ITSELF! but your all to stupid to realize this fact. The fact that the human race is meant to work together. its meant to achieve greatness its meant to be better, stronger. together we form a bound that not even a nuke to penetrate. Please for the safety of your families an your children’s children! Think more rational!

  6. You seriously underestimate the possibility that neither you god nor anyone else’s exists; he hasn’t stopped people from doing brutal and murderous things before, and he likely won’t now even if he is up there somewhere. The smart move is to solve our own problems.

  7. I love china I get cheap things from
    Chinese people that continue to work for nothing. Everyone here on
    this web site is at each others throat. The hate and contention here
    is off the charts. The intelligence here is not very high either. Its
    not about me a American or you Chinese or whatever race you are. Its
    a RICH and POOR thing. The rich always tries to make you work for
    nothing and they do a good job at it. They send the poor to fight
    wars so they may gain more wealth and resources and they don’t care
    if you die in the war. They achieve this by always keeping the
    populations of the world fighting among themselves over race, creed,
    color, religion and culture. They keep you in a state of fear and
    discontent always keeping you down. media propaganda gives you the
    evil that must be vanquished and what to hate. I guess we are not
    quite as evolved in the human race as we think we are. To be
    perfectly honest with you this will never change we cannot change it
    as long as we are divided. Together we could change the world but
    this will never happen. Ancient civilizations have shown that the
    human race fault a global war maybe even a universal war once before.
    the solar system shows signs of of war everywhere. I believe we just
    keep repeating this loop never learning or evolving above it. I am a
    American I feel your pain, your hatred and your bitterness. I don’t
    hate you neither dose the people in this country hate you. We all
    want peace, we all want to live a good life that is not in poverty.
    There is good and bad in all races. If your country was top dog do
    you really thing those at the top world care about the rest of the
    world? I say no and I believe we are at the end of a cycle that has
    been playing out over and over again through the ages. Peace and
    good will to you.

  10. we buy Chinese to help them we can afford whatever we want but have been spoiled by Chinese junk “” but most here are tired of the pathetic crap and turning home to best goods again

  11. I think the real p roblem is all sides are underestimating the power of god and hes got a timeframe wich only he know and all must come to passs before the end as we know it “we may have our finger on the trigger but the outcome belongs to him who sits on the throne and keyboeard warriors and fake profiles that seem to prevail mean nothing to him

  12. America and americans need to stay out of world afairs and go back to a isolationist policy and let all these 3rd world countrys fight it ” but that will never happen the elite want world government and you morons complaining about it don’t have a clue its not all usas doing att all

  13. human rights Robert what do you know about them your a communist ive seen your profi;le on net search you be da liar

  14. Simple C ! ( None of my business major to coach ) Human Rights Strategy :

    What’s simply wrong with the USA & Americans of violations of Human Rights within & outside , as they were more famous having very good human rights track records in the past life business ?

  15. “Chinese want peace”, doubt it. They want to rise as a world power and are actively attempting to increase their sphere of influence.

  16. its known all products of Chinese are sub standards,
    no quality. that’s why Chinese people also no quality, idiots and stupid
    brawlers.. Chinas 100 vessel ships without quality is equivalent only to
    5 ships of Japan,.. also 1 million people of China equivalent only 100
    Japanese…so how to win the war these idiots chinese….US and Japan have a very very high quality of people and products compare to these Chinese..

  17. Sorry, since you have adopted GOP language (“Barry,” “his mission to destroy her is nearly done,” etc.) and their incredibly overhyped predictions of disaster, I mistook you for one of them. I do not “blindly” follow Obama, and NEVER “worshipped” him (another right-wing clue) nor do I “rubberstamp” his decisions; I did not vote for him in 2012, and I am not a registered Democrat. I merely defend him against GOP lies: Russia was lost to us as an ally when the Clinton administration violated George Bush Sr’s alleged promise not to recruit new NATO members from ex-Warsaw Pact nations, especially not those on Russia’s borders. I suspect GWB wasn’t one of their favorites, either, and I’m glad you want Putin as an ally so badly; yes, sometimes we have to accept unsavory allies, but – barring a true emergency – Putin isn’t really the kind of guy we want to buddy up to.
    Finally, where do you get off accusing Obama of “child raping,” another dead-on right-wing giveaway.
    If you don’t like being confused with conservatives, then stop repeating and amplifying their lies.

  18. I am registered Democrat and I live in a blue state, but unlike you – I don’t blindly support Obama just because he belongs to my party. We democrats have let BO do some pretty serious damage to the USA by rubber stamping everything he does, and you have wrongly pigeon holed me as a “conservative” just because I no longer worship Barry. I think you should show your continued support for Obama by enlisting in the US Military. Have fun defending his child raping so called moderate (ISIS) rebels in the sands of Syria.

  19. Philippines will go down by Chinese bombs. China already cut their import quotas on bananas. Very soon they will send our maids back.

  20. America fighting in the Middle East on ISIS, Syria, under the name for a better humanity. The real intentions for America to fight in Syria is to top Syrian regime Assad. All these Syrian refugees appears on TV every night are caused by Americans fighting in Syria under the name for better life. Ask any Syrians and they will tell you otherwise.

    America is speaking with both side of its mouth.

  21. And France is China’s partner in the UK nuclear power plant deal. Germany’s Angela Merkel is going to China to sign big deal with China. And you people think China has no friends????

  22. With thousands of miles of tunnels in China and in Russia AND the size of these two countries, there is no way we can win against them. You guys are dreaming, and our leaders are fools. We can’t even handle Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, ISIS,…
    and now, we are foolish enough to think we can beat Russia and China, AND at the same time!!!!! I don’t know what you people are thinking of. We are NOT superman!!!!!

  23. “…China and Russia that seriously underestimate the power that the United States does possess”.

    What power??? We have been showing the world our power since the 1960s in Vietnam, our “shock and awe” in Afghanistan, Iraq, ISIS,… since 2001. They know what we have, but do we know what they have??? We were completely surprised by Russia’s “shock and Awe” after Russia entered into the Syria’s fight. We are afraid of China’s DF-21D, and WU-14.

    Do you think Russia and China really seriously underestimated the power of the U.S. or rather the U.S. is seriously underestimated the power of Russia and China????

  24. Chinese wants peace but is not afraid of war. Like Americans, we are not lesser beings to be intimidated by military might.

    What makes USA thinks that everyone has to live under her world order where might is right? We know that the USa has the strongest military because it spends so much until it has to borrow 3 trillion dollars from the Chinese in order to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghan. One because she believes (rightly or wrongly, I dont know) the Taliban produces Osama Ladin which cause the 9/11 incident, and the other because CIA produce fake evidence of WMD in order to destroy Iraq killing 250,000 innocent civilians who are so unfortunate to be living in Iraq. Now, this South China Sea incident is made to seem like China is preventing freedom of navigation. Another lie! China welcomes trade, how can we stop freedom of navigation? It does not make logical sense. What US is doing is flexing muscles and muddy the waters by taking sides in the territorial disputes amongst claimants of these islands. What reason is there to use warships to sail as close as 12 nautical miles. The ships are not commercial ships.

  25. If the US uses war criminal Japan and useless Philippines, what the US is bragging about China and Russia corporation? Why the US constantly bashing China for doing things to prevent the threat of possible attack from the US to China?

  26. YM, they dont have strong millitary except one with nuclear weapon
    thats Iran, and they only want to figth Israel not the US !

    Saudi Arabia is the one that is finance terrorrist behind our back,
    in Sept/11/ 2001_ 15 terrorists that crashed the two towers in N.Y

    were saudis, but the US oil sellers are in cahoot with them for $$

  27. That’s why the Chinese and Russians and people in alot of the world are dying to come to the USA because it’s so awful here.

  28. Allies in what? here you go again, talking as if you live in another planet. I guess you need to read your history books, Even your beloved china where once saved by the US.

    And to answer your question why Russia and China is going against US, that is because they where Envious of Influential the US is.

  29. Russia and China ones a giant gas station sinking the other a junk maker to fill the $ stores and it’s economy is going south and what’s worse is they have never liked each other or trusted each other and don’t forget India,Japan and the Phillipine’s not to happy with China

  30. Never say never. All humans are similar. At this historical moment, development and peace are more important even in geopolitical ambitions, which is to be more impact on the rest of the world. But due to historic experiences, they may not mean the same thing. China was in Africa just before the West. It could what the West do but didn’t.

    Amid Chinese tensions with U.S., French frigate visits China It will participate in a maritime exercise about accidental encounters at sea, and French and Chinese naval personnel will visit each others’ ships and play soccer, the short report added.

  32. I would agree with you only partially.

    “Immediate” – Nations take at least a medium-term view, if not the long-term view. Ideological alignment is a long-term view because political ideology strongly defines entire nations, cultures, and societies.

    “Self-interest” – Only partly a factor in defining foreign policy. Sometimes, for example, self-interest is reduced in order to promote mutual interest. Humanitarianism is also a non-utilitarian aspect of foreign policy.

    Friends or foes might not be permanent, but there is often a political alignment of nations that does not easily change or shift. The obvious example is the Western versus Communist blocs, which persisted for decades, the continuing legacy of which we see today.

    Despite U.S. colonization, the Philippines tends to align with the U.S. for reasons other than simply self-interest: common value systems, Western heritage, and a history in which Filipinos fought and died alongside U.S. soldiers in World War II. This historical sentiment cannot be overlooked easily.

    It is historical sentiment that makes both India and its former colonizer, the U.K., chary of developing close, warm relations despite both being strong democracies. India will never forget British subjugation.

  33. Nations usually aligned for immediate interests. There is no permanent friends or foe in this world. Britain now is the best friend of China.

  34. some information from early this year, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank was proposed by China in 2013 and officially founded in 2015. US of course didn’t join. But UK, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Norway, South Korea etc….all joined and some of them are even co-founding it…The economy is in a stage called globalization. everyone wants win-win. The big-brother era will pass eventually… The Ally in the past may not be your ally tmr…It’s all about how much benefit you can bring to them not how much cost and help you are asking from them when you want to apply economic sanctions or war…

  35. Everyone should try to visit Hiroshima and/or Nagasaki to develop an idea of the power of nuclear weapons. The bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki are examples of nuclear weapons at their lowest destructive potential. You’ve got to be crazy to think of using nuclear weapons today. Truman was right to pull back from using this option during the Korean War.

  36. some more information from early this year, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank was proposed by China. US of course didn’t join. But UK, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Norway, South Korea etc….all joined and some of them are even co-founding it…The economy is in a stage called globalization. everyone wants win-win. The big-brother era will pass eventually… The Ally in the past may not be your ally tmr…It’s all about how much benefit you can bring to them not how much cost and help you are asking from them….

  37. I do not intend to get into your guys fight. just want to highlight that, during US confrontation with Iran last time, US allies clearly warned US that, next time if you are going to do something like that…do it yourself… They care about their nations well-being and their ppl…and the cost for those economic sanctions and wars…

  38. Wishful thinking, it is actually Europe and the US that need China. China own a lot of US debt. They just signed a deal to finance Nuclear plants in the UK. A lot of goods are manufactured in China at cheap labor rates,. China will protect its own interests. Seems to me like it is the US that is aggressive in this situation. China has also made a lot of inroads in Africa. China is now the more preferred trading partner. ECOWAS are working on a deal worth $9 billion to build a superhighway. Nigeria is signing rail construction contracts and etc.

  39. Considering that both China and Russia make up their versions of reality and in no way see the world as it really is…it is China and Russia that seriously underestimate the power that the United States does possess. Just reading the press releases from the foreign ministries of each country is like reading a comic strip.

  40. China is a big liar, their water border is up in the north and they come down all the way to the south to claim the islands and marinetime, they very agressive to their weak neighbors, Vietnam should be fall into the China side, why they are in the middle and neutral, if china is a good brother of Viet cong, think please people.

  41. China knows that economic power is far more important then military power. China needs the markets of the US and Europe far more then it needs anything Russia can provide them.

  42. Chinese the bulyling, will meet it match soon. I personally will kick each one of them (Red chinese man in the ass). Thank you America, A great nation of world peace protection.

  43. BYE BYE YOU HAVING ANOTHER BAD DAY OR YOU SNIFFING. BLOWING SMOKE AGAIN..BE A GOOD BOY AND GO PLAY WITH YOUR BARBIE…YOUR DELUSIONAL

  44. Thousands of combat planes are being bought by third world generals, each getting thousands under the table. Sam 300 missile launchers are purchased to shoot down planes, but there is no real enemy to be found. Russian and US arms industries are sharing the profits.

  45. All are ambitious and competing, but also cooperate. India is not stupid and will not be anybody’s fool. DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE are paramount compared with geopolitical ambitions, same with China.

  46. US has been switching partners like yesterday newspapers. Russia regardless of what it stands are reliable as night and day comparing with US, Cuba, Syria… come to mind.

  47. oh yeah, i am sure you get the daily briefings from both china and india, and you are all up to speed on their geopolitical ambitions. like anybody is going to listen to some russian piece of garbage on the internet. lol do the world a favour and get your russian friends and go die in a fire.

  48. There will always be competition of terror to be safe. India and China both know that cooperation between them is better than confrontation.

  49. Everybody hates everybody else once upon a time. India with her long colonial experience is stunt non-aligned and will not be a tool for the West or manipulated by her.

  50. Timur
    Try fool someone else. India’s nuclear arsenal is pointed at China’s borders, in fact India is building up its missile defense in deterrent to China’s nuclear threat. India is raising its number of carriers against China’s naval infiltration over the Indian Ocean. No, China and India are playing nice to pretend that things are well and good, but underneath rattling sounds of arms race is in a full speed! We know what’s happening boy. We know.

  51. Not really, India is on good terms with China. She understands the games the West plays and is herself an non-aligned. Vietnam just said she wants to be neutral in US China spat. ASEAN nations want to be neutral.
    Anyway what you said has nothing to do with what I said.

  52. Timur
    Probably it is best to smoke China first before starting new a peaceful Asia. India would love to see China gone in a split second. Japan, Vietnam, Philippines will rejoice and dance for joy. And with the world market, no more poor quality substandard and hazardous “Made In China” products. lol

  53. To feed the US war machine, with the largest military, US needs continuous wars. With winding down in Middle East, here comes the pivot to Asia.

  54. Loser, run and hide. Why not, Siberia is a barren isolated frozen landscape with sinking giant butt holes of the abyss! Derp derp derp, yeh? lol

  55. China have sailed more than a thousand times in Philippoine
    waters, doing illegal fishing, smuggling goods, entering to PH with out
    passports, they are the worst and bacteria in ASIA..they can bully only the
    small nation..And now they warn US for sailing just only near to their water
    territory….The world must know these Chinese the worst af all nation…

    Chinas
    wealth came from their aggressiveness and greedy attitudes towards neighboring
    weak nation for a long period of time. The world, all countries knew about
    these. So no other countries will help china if US attacked China. So no 3rd
    world war to be happened.

    Chinese
    officials said that they monitor and follow the USS Larsen as it illegally
    entered the water near the islands. Only “monitor and follow”, thats
    the only thing the Chinese could do? If its Filipino or Vietnamese boat, they
    have been driven off using water cannons, so are they just good on weak
    countries?

  56. US can just shove your demand right up your butt. lol Useless paper
    tiger. Don’t matter how much land titles you have, it will all be
    sequestered when giant bankers start collecting payments. Don’t you get
    it? lol Federal Reserves will sequester China’s properties soon! Derp
    derp derp, yeh? lol

  57. US can just shove your demand right to your arse. lol Useless paper tiger. Don’t matter how much land titles you have, it will all be sequestered when giant bankers start collecting payments. Don’t you get it? lol Federal Reserves will sequester China’s properties soon! Derp derp derp, yeh? lol

  58. Hey look, China’s government is in a panic cleaning up smelly stinking sewer full of corrupt officials after $3.55trillion foreign reserves evaporated in a short month. Don’t bother Obama being weak, watch how the Giant Dragon falls down flat with his face to his butt! Derp derp derp, yeh? lol

  59. China Poised to Demand US Land As Payment for Debt. “Could real estate on American soil owned by China be set up as “development zones” in which the communist nation could establish Chinese-owned businesses and bring in its citizens to the U.S. to work? That’s part of an evolving proposal Beijing has been developing quietly since 2009 to convert more than $1 trillion of U.S debt it owns into equity. Under the plan, China would own U.S. businesses, U.S. infrastructure and U.S. high-value land, all with a U.S. government guarantee against loss.”
    hehehehehheeheheheheheheheh

  60. China is bound to fall in the next coming months and years. Watch out for a total collapse troll. Your precious greedy friend is going to hit the bottom soon, like it or not! yeh?

  61. Chinese investors are leaving mainland China for its inevitable economic collapse, stupid. Can’t you see the obvious? Derp derp derp, yeh? lol

  62. Don’t misrepresent America with Obama. He’s no American but black Muslim from Africa, faked his birth certificate that the Democrats bought for a change. Derp derp derp. Yeh? lol

  63. wave bye bye

    Chinese Investors Are Scooping Up NYC Real Estate, Aided by Like-Minded Russians

    Russia and China March Together, Eyeing a Common Goal

    America is a joke…

  64. Chinese Investors Are Scooping Up NYC Real Estate, Aided by Like-Minded Russians

    Russia and China March Together, Eyeing a Common Goal

    America is a joke…

  65. Britain is best friend of China
    France just had a port visit to China while US is gunboating in S China Sea
    Germany prime minister plans to visit China
    S Korean went to China to celebrate the defeat of Japan
    Need I say more?

  66. Yah that’s why Texas has the best economy in the u.s and more military bases than any other state in the u.s. We live like kings down here while yall struggle. Lol, your mad couse were an educated state that makes money and love our guns. Your welcomed to come see for yourself.

  67. America are the most fascist nation on earth ….their right behind their saint Hitler….nobody cares for what propaganda America says anymore……..those days are over…..all Americans ever did was murder and steal, examples – America murdered hundreds of thousands of natives … America murdered and enslaved Africans …. America murdered hundreds of thousands of Japanese . America murdered in Iraq …. America murdered in Afghanistan…. America murdered in Serbia …. America caused the wars in Yugoslavia America started the war in Syria. America started the war in Vietnam … America started the war in Ukraine…. America stole Mexican lands and that is California , new MEXICO and other lands and they shall be returned to Mexico in the near future…… America murders and lies for their own cause but Ukraine is their final stop and everyone hates America for their lies and propaganda…. everyone is sick of America and that’s a fact….. americans are no different than their saint (HITLER)…..BOMB N*ZI AMERICA AND THEIR ISIS ALLIES THEN PEACE ON EARTH WILL BE HERE…

  68. Ludicrous article, only good instill fear on people, chances of such weapons being put to use would only exists in the imagination of a MANIAC as a President.

  69. nobody gives a flying f*ck about American lies and propaganda no more……all America does is start wars then lose with nato……America is trying to start another war…because they cant fight and get what they want…..soon enough Russia,china, india and their friends are going to destroy America and nato and send them home in body bags,…..

  70. You are dreaming, wake up from your deep sleep or did you not read the article. With over 1,500 nuclear warheads capable of destroying the entire planet I would hardly say the US is nothing lmao…

  71. America never won a war In their history even with nato lolo; japan don’t count because all they did was kill unarmed civilians , oh wait they still do that and lose hehehehheheheh f*cking American pieces of sh*t …..the russkies ,Chinese and their friends should bomb those American N*zis and their isis allies out of the eastern world period…..f*ck em nobody needs they are a waste of space…..everyone will turn to Canada for business and for friendship from the west….

  72. vick diamond

    First of all you’re a certified Russian troll. Notified and flagged. lol

    Communist North Korea invaded South that UN forces manage to flash out of South’s along the 38th parallel, while South Vietnam lost to North Vietnam. US is only there as UN installed forces to fight of invading Vietcongs. And US invasion of Iraq is regime change. Saddam was removed and by moral obligation US forces cared to establish a new democracy based government. In this 3 war cases, only Vietnam was lost. The Korean war and Iraq invasion were both a success. Afghanistan is the same as Iraq, establish a functioning government that can be accepted in the International realm. But of course you prefer your delusional version from Kremlin headquarter! lol

  73. soon the russkies and Chinese and their allies are going to destroy and bomb N*zi americans and their isis allies out of the east period…..

  74. I would hope to see a NATO like military alliance in near future among China, Russia, India, and Pakistan and rest of the members of SCO. It will keep both the US and NATO in check and contribute to the permanent peace to this planet we live and called Earth.

  75. Historically, the two nations have not been allies. Because the US is developing and threatening a 1st strike against both nations, China and Russia may create a joint response agreement out of necessity.

  76. America is nothing………you never won a war in your history even with nato lolol japan don’t count…..reality is Russia and china alone would demolish you americans and your old aging nato friends fact…..

  77. America will not simply collapse without a fight you can count on that. The winner may very well be nobody if the earth is turned to ash lol

  78. @Bill– You’re playing way too much Video war games.Take a break and take a walk maybe you’ll realize you’re in a dream world.

  79. War at this stage is highly unlikely, however the more China and Russia move to AX the dollar the more pressure they exert on Washington to start a war with one side or the other and at that time we’ll see if China or Russia stay united against the US. Gadhafi’s plan to quit selling Libyan oil in US dollars and Saddam Hussein willing to follow along brought the destruction of Libya and Iraq so yes war is on the horizon if China and Russia seek to make similar moves.

  80. everyone is on Russia’s and china’s side against evil America….America is aging like their nato joke allies…..the only good nation is Canada from north America…everyone wants business with them…..not pig sh*t America…..

  81. Any peaceful Nation when backed in the corner like what U.S is doing to China and Russia will fight. back. If U.S keep antagonizing Russia and China they will eventually be Allied together against the U.S. America is playing a very dangerous game.

  82. @al Len– U.S lost in Vietnam. South Korea and North Korea are still at war, U.S messed up big time in Iraq and after 14 years still fighting a unwinnable war in Afghanistan. Now they are looking for another fight in Syria and now bullying China and Russia. U.S is a warmongering Nation a bully. Enough already.

  83. Russia and China both are faced with border issues, nothing that endanger US in a direct confrontation except being pulled in by own allies. Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore are stepping up in South China Sea’s freedom of navigation against greedy China. While the other side Russia faces NATO and the Nordic states in a chilling Russophobia. US always goes along with allies and friends in battle. China and Russia both stand isolated and alone.

    So much for immature “your stick is bigger than mine” ego-boosting childsplay Miss Russian troll writer.

  84. China is always all talk and no action. The worst thing that can happen to a dictatorial nation is for a war to breakout. That would be the chance for internal subversion. 1.4 suppressed souls are waiting for that moment.

    While the US would suffer economically if there were ever a war between the US and China, China would suffer much more. Just imagine what 1.4 billion hungry people would do.

    An all out war between US, China and Russia is highly unlikely simply because there will be no winner.

  85. Yeah, maybe we’ll luck out and the first place in the US to be nuked in a war is Texas. That could be the basis of a whole new friendship between the sane people in the US and China.

  86. Congratulations to you for making meaningless criticisms of an administration simply following well-establish US practice, one used by both GOP and Dem administrations. Congratulations for likely being a hypocrite and criticizing Obama here and elsewhere for not being tough enough, for being a “wimp,” or a “girly-man” if you follow the current idiotic “conservative” practice of basing foreign policy decisions on a dangerously childish macho view.

  87. Thia article isn’t impressive…. You can name the number of nukes on each side, it only takes a fraction, to wipe each side out, when each ICBM carries 10 warheads

  88. Serban
    You’re a cross-eyed idiot with no basic knowledge over military matters. Ye, there is no point in replying to your worthless trolling.

  89. Give me your evidence and I am giving you mine:
    1)MacArthur home by Christmas in Korean war before pushed back on the longest marine retreat.
    2) Vietnam: Killed Diem and thought that was a good move, a disaster.
    3) Iraq: Remove Saddam and now his army becomes ISIS and leaving Iraq with nothing to gain.

  90. America is the most POWERFUL of them all “COMBINED!!!This is a FACT.One attack to a NATO member is an all out attack to the entire NATO!America is the most powerful ,militarily,against fake China&annexing thief Russia COMBINED!In Asia,we have powerful allies,such as Vietnam,The Philippines,Japan,South Korea,Taiwan,Brunei,Malaysia,Indonesia,and do not forget AUSTRALIA!and the entire EUnion!!!!!against China&Russia!!!We will wipe these two OUT!

  91. Not only China-Russia together, US has underestimated since WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, the rise of China. There is not a single correct estimate of the US that she knows what she is doing.

  92. Come to Texas please any country would have the fear of god if they invade Texas. That’s a fact everyone I know has been trained to shoot a gun since 12 years old. Heads will be popped off.

  93. Congratulations to Obama for pushing our two biggest enemies together. Obama has accelerated the decline of the USA by at least twenty years, and his mission to destroy her is nearly done. If we would have showed Russia even a modicum or morsel of respect they could have been our ally instead of our enemy. Dig a hole to hide in America – because we are about to reap what Obama has sewn. By the way, it is no accident that American women will be eligible for combat as of January 1st, 2016….

  94. .
    While Putin is crazy enough to start what would be a world ending nuke war, the Chinese are nowhere that stupid. Look at all the development that has occurred in China in the last 15 years. All would be gone along with 75-85% of the population in a nuke war. China will talk big and make vailed threats but will not back it up enough to cause an all out war. Not so with Putin, but the Chinese can help keep him in check.
    .

  95. Not our business? Well then, i wonder what will happen when slimy, thieving, cockroach country of China takes over all the resources of the china sea and pushes their neighbors around. They have no morals, they are like lice and maggots.

  96. Tony you are a punk ass bitch.. You hate America? GTFO then… go back to china, or mexico or what ever nationality you are… Murica’ Love it or Leave it!!!

  97. Not bow down, just do as your told, shut up, and obey.. that is it… It’s all we want… We dont invade other ppls countries, we don’t kill and take property, we pay for it. Why would any other country want to be mo’ better than us?

  98. America, ever since the fall of the USSR, has been the trigger-happy Idiot in the World not to mention using “weapons of mass destruction” as a cover up for their 5000 Nuke capabilities. Its time Americans start acting like a Diplomatic Super Power instead of a -Stupid Power. Our days are numbered on this Planet – lets enjoy them !

  99. China just hit the rock (US NAVY) in the water. We are Vietnamese fishing boats.
    China is crying likes big baby. TTP will teach them a lesson.

  100. In the game of three-way war, China has formidable experience. And so far, it has played its hand, of winning when the other two parties are in conflict with each other, to perfection.

  101. These communist countries just learning on how to shot a gun from their ship, likes Russia just did in Syria . And China just shot water at Vietnamese/Phillipines fishing boats.
    So let try and see what will be happen. I love to see that. USA is not a paper tiger .

  102. And how about Russia and China underestimate US Asia Pacific and NATO alliance? Nice try miss Russian propagandist but your argument is a total waste of time.

  103. And how about Russia and China underestimates US Asia Pacific and NATO alliance? Nice try miss [Polina] but your argument is a total waste of time.

  104. China and Russia must be playing with fire for thinking they can win in
    a war with the US aliance ( UK, Canada, France, Japan, Sweden, Norway . . . )
    All of these countries should make sure their nuclear weapons aim at these two

    IF THEY WANT WAR OR PEACE, OFCOURSE NOT WAR !

  105. Really? It just never amazes me anymore on how far behind the U.S. government is thinking if the title to this article has any truth to it.. Totally. This is something most Americans have known since China and Russia did that big military practice together about a year ago and our government is just now getting it? Makes me wonder how long our government will take to realize we are under attack before there is a response? This is so damn pathetic. Can our government really be this stupid as a whole?

  106. actually ariel is correct!!! you tony are a pathetic piece of shti, who needs to worry about satisfying your fat disgusting hog head wife instead!! don’t know how you can live with that tictac between your legs!!

  107. tony the stupid idiot!! China isn’t provoking anyone?? NO, there just closing and claiming the south china sea from all the “tiny asian countries”and building man made islands to turn into military compounds, runways,etc…. Then we have have russia invading “tiny countries” Kiev, Donetsk,etc…and claiming it as there own just cuz they want to! You don’t call that provoking??? Please leave the USA and go move to russia or china, since you have a massive hard on for those countries who love to bully other countries. The south china sea “Subi Reef in the Spratly Islands archipelago”, does not belong to China, it is in international waters and International law permits military vessels the right of “innocent
    passage” in transiting other country’s seas without notification. SO CHINA AND RUSSIA ARE NOT PROVOKING ANYONE????? yeah right!!! pathetic jerk off!!!!

  108. I doubt that you can call India a US ally. Don’t forget about Pakistan and North Korea who are not friends of the US. On the US side, you probably will only have some European countries. A lot of nations will remain neutral in this potential conflict. It would be a huge mess!

  109. Hmmm, so let me understand this, Billy. So, 50% of the U.S population is military? And, everyone will take out their guns and shoot at a Ballistic missile? haha

  110. Allies/ Allies in what? In going against Russia and China? Only because these 2 nations will not bow to the U.S demands for a couple of $$$$ ? Humm Now that’s PATHETIC!!!

  111. i talk to a russian who said quote Russia not want to be an equal…but to surpass U.S. be the leader…think be china aspirations as well…we the United will win but want be pretty.

  112. Most Americans already see the two of them together. Do you honestly think Americans can’t see or understand what is going on. The Fact that nuclear arsenals are there is all the deterrent needed. Another reason is their are over a billion weapons in the hands of the public in the United States. Does China and Russia think they are just going to walk in without major losses not because of out military, but because 50 percent of Americans are trained military, and the others know how to use weapons. China and Russia’s invasion force if they even have one after the nukes would have such a large death rate it would make invading the US virtually impossible.
    How are they going to get there soldiers and equipment to America. China has no navy, and Russia navy only 40% is functional. They can fly them in as their planes would be put to the bottom of the Pacific, or the Bering Straights. impassible.
    Russia and China as Allies is fine with the United States. We the people have been watching you in China and Russia for a long time. Are we afraid, the answer is we are ready when you want to try. Just remember that civilian weapons are not kosher and they are made to kill

  113. The fact is that it has been the United States’ arrogance and aggression all over the world that has driven Russia and China closer together. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, we have taken the position that we have the biggest and baddest military on the face of the planet so we will do whatever we want regardless of international laws and we reserve the right to bomb any country we chose, to destabilize any government we choose and to promote our “interests” which now extend to every square inch of land and water throughout the world. What gave us the “F’ing” right to bomb the hell out of Libya just so we could install a more Western friendly government after our “Libyian allies butchered Ghadaffi like a pig”? What gave us the right to arm and support the radical Islamic elements in Syria (know known as ISIS) in order to topple Assad from power? What gave us the right to organize the violent street protests in Kiev and aid those who carried out the armed coup simply to stop Ukraine from signing a purely economic trade deal with Russia? What gave us the right to bomb the hell out of Serbia, a sovereign country that was being attacked by Albainian terrorists who were killing Christian Serbs in the region now called Kosovo, just to get rid of Milosevic who still maintained economic ties to Russia?

    Eventually, the other kids will learn to stick together when the school yard bully tried to terrorize them.

  114. No Country in the World wants to invade another country, all countries should be helping each others, and stop the killing of humans

  115. What a big shame, of all these countries arming so much, what they need to do is control birth of humans, and save all these resources to help the Humans that are here now,

  116. So if the US helped they Allies, you will call it meddling. But when china is elbowing and disrespecting other smaller countries, you call than sovereignty. PATHETIC.

  117. What you call “meddling” is just international policy regulations which the United States is amongst the head and not the tail. Stop harping on the bad idea of US non interference in relevant international matters..!?!

  118. Well, as they say: Play with fire…………. and………….?
    That’s right… You WILL get burned. If the U.S believes that meddling in every nations business is the name of the game, then…. Don’t be surprised on what happens next. Can you imagine all the good things that could be done with those billions and billions of $$$$ spent in all these meddling’s? You could give a house and education to every man, women and children in the U.S…. Or, help all the poor nations that many times don’t even have potable water to drink.

  119. From the outside look Russia’s close ties with China but, Russia will never evolve into a powerful military alliance against the U.S. In present time, Russian government is worrying about Chinese population in Siberia (East Russia) – China said: ‘They will invest in this region and send more people to Siberia year by year – In 50 years or 100 years later this region will become part of China’ Chinese government is planning to build a China town in Siberia and they are planning to do so. This matter will be done 100%. Russian people should be aware of this matter.

  120. Maybe if all sides stop threatening each other, their can be toleration. Seriously: Nationalistuc pride will only cause chaos. It’s time for nationalists to stop demonizing innocent people on all sides.

  121. Whenever i see Barry give a speech it seems like he’s got a vibrator up his butt. Watch him next time, you’ll see what i mean.

  122. Sure Billy, the world will animate Russia and China, huh? Well, the only one provoking here is the U.S- not the rest of the world.

  123. US is the only one country which are always talking about war. Not Russia nor China are planing any war,but they fed up with US geopolitical aggression towards Russia and China.

  124. what a surprise!!! whatever obama does…, he has been a laughing stock all over the world!!! what an wimpy idiot who is good for NOTHING and has put our country back many many decades and no longer the world super power that had saved the world before!

  125. Start by passing a veto-proof military budget, free of any tricks or gimmicks. Then elect a president who has some sense of strategy. I hate to say it but that’s probably Trump. It’s surely not Clinton, unless you believe she learned from her monumental mistakes as secretary of state (I put the failed SOFA negotiations and pullout from Iraq at the top of that long list).

  126. obama has succeeded in abdicating world leadership to both China and Russia. obama has no idea about world issues and his community organizer skills whatever they were have been totally useless in the world arena. Unfortunately the USA will not recover from his missteps. By obama’s plan he has succeeded in making the USA a non-entity in world politics. He drew a line in the sand in Syria and gave that to Russia. Russia invades the Crimea and obama does nothing. Now China issues a sharp rebuke to the USA about the China Sea and what is obama going to do. He will put his tail between his legs and run.

  127. All Chinese outlaw activities must be stopped. Its border is ended at Hainan
    Islands period. The sovereignty of its neighbor countries Vietnam, Philippine
    and all Southeast Asia countries are indisputable period. Furthermore, the
    freedom to access in the open sea must be respected period. No country on this
    world has the right to block other countries free access on the open sea.

    This is the 21st century not like thousand years ago China Emperors wrongfully believed
    that they had the right to conquer all neighbor countries. China does not have
    the power to redraw the map just only benefit for China without regarding any
    international laws. This world must never ever allows this to happen.

    The war with China cannot be avoided since Chinese dictators’ greedy attitude have no
    limit. Therefore, all countries on the Western side of Pacific Ocean must be
    ready for war with China.

  128. This would be a China-Russia against the World. Let’s see. Unless China-Russia would want to be mutually annihilated by the world, China and Russia should just shut up!

  129. China warns US over sea patrols

    The People’s Liberation Army yesterday sent two vessels to warn a US Navy warship after the guided-missile destroyer sailed close to China’s man-made islands in the disputed South China Sea.

    Defence spokesman Yang Yujun said the PLA would take all steps to protect national security as it sent its own guided-missile destroyer Lanzhou and frigate Taizhou to warn USS Lassen, which had entered waters within 12 nautical miles of the Mischief and Subi reefs in the Spratly archipelago.

    The us navy vessel was warn she is in the range of DF21D.

    The captain of the US navy vessel ran like hell after warning by Chinese PLA Navy vessel.
