They will deal with Russia, but only when they can take the Russians to the cleaners – every bit or Russia’s weakness will be ruthlessly exploited.

Russia is a dirt bag nation now. Russian GDP per capita is now lower than Czech Republic or Greece. Russia exports babies and herpes. They have nothing in common with China, and China thinks they are a joke.

That is Western policy. If our policy does not adjust to the new realities on the ground, we may find that China and Russia may part ways with us more and more…………

As for the resources, China can’t do anything about other then fighting. And in any case, China’s economy is rising unprecedentedly even without the Russia’s resources.

When you have enemies you try have them fight each other and not you.

You in the West are already infiltrated by Islam and you can bet your Western liberal cotton socks that there is a planned synchronized invasion on the table of the Muslim War Room. Shows me you are not very bright. Russia and China are shaking their heads at your stupidity. You are already doomed. No, the mirage, the Emperor’s New Clothes are yours, just as all the Islamic media bots and Trojan horses were and are yours. Sad but true.
