In a particularly significant speech on July 1st – published on Chinese websites, but little reported in the West – Chinese President Xi Jinping baldly stated :
“The world is on the brink of radical changes. We see how the EU is gradually crumbling and the US economy is collapsing. This will end in a new world order. So, in ten years we will have a new world order unlike anything before, in which the key will be the Union of Russia and China…
”We are now witnessing aggressive actions by the United States against Russia and China. I believe that Russia and China may form an alliance before which NATO will be powerless, and it will put an end to the imperialist aspirations of the West….”
Xi went on to state that ”China advocates people of all countries joining together to change pressure into power, risks into opportunities, and replace confrontation with cooperation, and monopolies with win-win deals.”
It is apparent that once ‘elected’, neither Zio-warrior Clinton nor ‘Nuke-em’ Trump can expect anything like a clear run for the stalled military-industrial imperialist agenda.
Things could get very messy indeed….
