Topic Introduction

Hey, I don't know what's gonna happen, I don't know who's friend or enemy the two largest competitors to the US really are. Putin has been critical of US policy & threatens to accept euros for its oil exchanges - China is listed as a country ripe for "regime change" in PNAC documents. Both China and Russia are members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, vying for position in Central Asia ... I'm not certain of much, but if articles that shed light on the significance of these two countries in the larger scale of things come to light and we catch it, we'll link them here.

Articles

In the Hole to China
By Paul Craig Roberts
@counterpunch.org
QUOTE
Strategic thinkers, if any remain who have not been purged by neocons, will quickly conclude that China’s power over the value of the dollar and US interest rates also gives China power over US foreign policy. The US was able to attack Afghanistan and Iraq only because China provided the largest part of the financing for Bush’s wars.

...No country on earth, except for Israel, supports the Bush regimes’ desire to attack Iran. It is China’s decision whether it calls in the US ambassador, and delivers the message that there will be no attack on Iran or further war unless the US is prepared to buy back $900 billion in US Treasury bonds and other dollar assets.

BMD Focus: Collision course with Russia
By Martin Sieff
United Press International, Dec. 15 2006
QUOTE
We have also repeatedly documented in these columns how major allies of the United States such as Japan and Israel take U.S. technical progress in BMD very seriously indeed. The deduction to be drawn from Gen. Baluyevsky's comments this week and the warnings that have come before is that the Russian leadership does too. But that is not necessarily a reassuring conclusion. It signals that the major European nations and the United States are heading at full speed for a strategic confrontation with Russia in Central Europe.

Cornering the Dragon: Bad Idea
by Conn Hallinan
antiwar.com, February 26 2005
QUOTE
The "containment" policies of the hawks have not damaged the growing Chinese economy – now the world's third largest – or shaken the grip of the Chinese Communist Party. But they have accelerated an arms race in the region, fueled growing nationalist movements in both China and Japan, and raised the stakes of any potential clash over Taiwan.

China shifts to euros for Iran oil
by Chen Aizhu
Reuters, March 27 2007
QUOTE
Iranian officials have said for months that more than half the OPEC member's customers switched their payment currency away from the dollar as Tehran seeks to diversify its reserves, but news of the Zhenrong change is the first outside confirmation.

The bear is back: Russia's return to the Middle East
By Robert Freedman
The Daily Star, March 26 2007
QUOTE
The recent visit to Moscow of Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal came shortly after Russian President Vladimir Putin's trip to Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan. There he aligned Russia with the Arab consensus supporting the Saudi-mediated Mecca Agreement between the Palestinian factions, called for the lifting of sanctions against the new Palestinian unity government, discussed energy cooperation and sought both to increase Russian arms exports to the Arab world and to attract Arab investment for the non-energy sector of the Russian economy. These moves have underscored the resurgence of Russian interest in the Middle East.

Putin says U.S. wants to dominate world
by Louis Charbonneau
Reuters, Feb 10, 2007

QUOTE
Putin said the United States had repeatedly overstepped its national borders in questions of international security, a policy that he said had made the world less, not more, safe...

The ties that bind China, Russia and Iran
by Jephraim P. Gundzik
Asia Times, June 06, 2005
QUOTE
To China and Russia, Washington's "democratic reform program" is a thinly disguised method for the US to militarily dispose of unfriendly regimes in order to ensure the country's primacy as the world's sole superpower. The China-Iran-Russia alliance can be considered as Beijing's and Moscow's counterpunch to Washington's global ambitions. From this perspective, Iran is integral to thwarting the Bush administration's foreign policy goals. This is precisely why Beijing and Moscow have strengthened their economic and diplomatic ties with Tehran. It is also why Beijing and Moscow are providing Tehran with increasingly sophisticated weapons.

Russia Claims Resource Rich Half Of The North Pole
Let the resource wars begin

Thread started by Cary
QUOTE
...Russia has decided that the United States is weak enough, now it has most of military and equipment bogged down in the Middle East, to not put up much of a fight over who owns what in the the Arctic Circle, so it has decided to announce a plan to annex an astounding 460,000 square miles of international territory. That's equal to the land mass of Italy, Germany and France, combined.

Sure, it's covered by ice and snow right now. But if global warming increases, and some of the more mind-boggling predictions of rapid climate change turn true, and the Arctic loses most of its summer ice, there are hundreds of millions of hectares of land up there that may be ready for development and exploitation in less than 20 years.
