China & Russia are strong allies & need to be.
They will stand by their allies. They will not betray nations they have committed to. The bond is real & the support consistent.
The insanity of the US elites & allies & level desperation has become clear.
Russia & China failed to protect Iraq & Libya & so allowed the USA & its allies to destroy them.
If the fact of these desperation wars had been recognized earlier more could have been done, however 9/11 gave the USA a moral mandate to facilitate chaos.
9/11 gave Bush & his Neocons an unstoppable headwind in the early war years.
Global sympathy, including from Russia, meant using force of arms to hinder US plans was all but impossible.
Mere words were weak weapons & proved ineffectual against US plans.
US war-planners were without doubt surprised by the speed of ISIS rise & the number of it adherents & conscience-free ethos of murder, torture & unlimited dedication to succeed or die.
Nothing like it had been seen since the Mongol hordes of Genghis Khan.
ISIS allowed the USA to be active overtly AND covertly in Syria.
A case was made via ISIS for other U.S. allies to be involved in Syria against int. law. No invitation to be there had been afforded them. But ISIS covered all.
Int. law was sidelined.
What we see in Trump is an empty brain save for psychopathic cunning, consumed w/ greed & totally amoral.
He can acquiesce to any evil as long as he is protected from attack by Neocons to seek whatever he lusts for in terms of power, wealth or influence.
As we know from Tillerson Trump is a geopolitical moron though he will have been briefed on the 9/11 protocols soon after entering office.
Though moronic on geopolitical issues not directly relating to his personal greed he will have been told his stance.
Those who think Trump made some error in judgement in tapping Bolton, Pompeo, Haley, Haspel & Abrams for positions of influence are deluded themselves.
They serve as Trump’s cover. He sees them as his shield & gateway to more power, wealth & influence.
Bolton & Pompeo have their own agenda.
It is very different from Trump’s.
Theirs is the 9/11 goal of 'Full Spectrum Dominance'.
Whatever they want is quite irrelevant to Trump.
He doesn’t care as long as he sees he may gain benefit to himself.
What you see now is the desperate struggle of the USA to achieve full spectrum dominance before China & her allies eclipse western elite power.
The race is on to turn back the rising tide before it overwhelms them.
However, this is doomed to failure.
The desperation of western elites is clear.
Unity is paramount though a schism is widening between previous US allies in Europe & the Trump admin. This despite the traditional European policy of close US relations as powerful allies maintaining influence.
Western mass media is doing all it can to help in the effort to maintain the western elite position as primary global controller.
They too cannot contemplate a world where nations like China & Russia wield as much economic power & influence as the West.
At this stage in our collective journey we need an age of solutions where poverty, disease & ignorance can be resolved for the benefit of all.
Instead we despair of a living nightmare created by the rule of insane elites in the USA & their craven allies.
We are at a watershed moment. Human-caused climate change is impacting our world. Resources are fast depleting. Political gangsters have risen & promise endless wars. Diverse dangers approach in a state of near collapse, disunity & division. Time is short.
Just at the moment when we require a coordinated & cooperative approach to every problem facing us we find a divisive ethos has arrived at the apex of U.S. power.
The single-minded concern displayed there is the dominance of one nation over all others.
Look around the West.
Division, dissatisfaction & debt are everywhere. In France & Britain most spectacularly & a USA divided as never before.
Battle lines have been drawn where a united front is needed.
And many, many more DESPERATION WARS are planned.
