  1. 40 years ago I was teaching electronics at St Lawrence College. I had one Chinese student who declared to me that China would one day rule the world, and it is beginning to look like he might have been quite right.

  2. Doesn't make much difference what country eventually rules the world . They will all die one day and there eventually will be no world, and no people, makes you wonder what they are fighting for?.

  3. ‘Just for show’?! This woman is so American. They just do not have a brain to imagine friendship. And somehow US people find it hard to believe that other nations can actually respect history and build relationships on that. Everything about US if just for show. That’s why they see it in others

  4. China always hold the "Peace card" and this is the only card without hidden agenda. Not like the US, UK, Australia, Canada, and EU which they claim they champion for Peace but always come with hidden agendas. Their mind set are domination and hegemony. They used Ukraine to try to weaken Russia. China should never trust them.

  5. CHINA , RUSSIA , USA.
    China has a war to fight in Taipei.
    Russia has a war to fight in Kyiv.
    USA has no war in Kyiv or in Taipei.
    Biden has a war to fight in the WH
    In USA. He is viewed to lose everything in November. He will
    Lose his friends ,both the Chinese and the Russians as well as
    the Ukrainians and the Taiwanese.
    …Harris Ng YM.
    IF TAIWAN DOES NOT BELONG TO CHINA , THEN IT BELONGS TO
    WHO? TO aMERICA? TO THE UN?
    The UN doesn't want Taiwan as a nation !
    Can Taiwan belong to Taipei?
    No, of course not !

  6. The EU and the USA was never a reliable friend to Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Russia needs China for its economy and its people will benefit from its relationship with China.

  7. China holds the cards on stopping the war in Ukraine. If it stops from Helping Russia at this time, but waiting until after Russia pulls out of Ukraine. China can put Russia in situation where Russia has to pull out to gain support from China and China gets to be the savior of the west.

  8. simple China funds GRU GRU collapse American company creates a proxy trade into Europe with new Russia 2500 – China finds way to steal reverse engineer American technology using European nations- intelligence wars with strings attached. Russia becomes China satellite nation- China moves into South Korea and Tibet and Malaysia (Hong Kong) on steroids .
