    NO MORE NICE GUY : NON FOREIGN INTERVENTION IN DUSTBIN OF HISTORY NOW?

    If anything these co-ordinated flights signals, it is that Moscow and Beijing has had enough of Obama and his crony allies’ – like the “grandson of a war criminal” Abe – smears, lies, war posturing, threats, and shenanigans against them. There is now a de facto military ALLIANCE between Russia and China. An attack or threat to one is an attack or threat to the other and WILL be met with a united response. For now, in view of the heightened state of affairs, Moscow and Beijing are closely co-ordinating their joint training and exercises in preparation for a major conflict.

    Beijing’s ramped up involvement in the training, equipping and supply of munitions to the Syrian army in co-ordination and in partnership with Russia and Iran in the Syrian theatre, is a statement to Obama it has lost it. It has miscalculated by going to the brink one time too many and that its hostile behaviour towards China has gone overboard and that Beijing’s patience has snapped. President Xi no longer see the necessity of being restraint, forbearing, diplomatic nor even handed with Washington vis-a-vis Moscow. China is now totally on Russia’s side. It’s policy of non involvement or non intervention in foreign countries is now in the dustbin. With a war mongering and subversive country like America, that was an unrealistic policy which sooner or later had to be discarded. It was a fools errand to think Washington/America could be changed.

    Welcome to the real world, President Xi. Now, if only you and your men can move faster and more strategically. With the world now clearly in two camps/axis, the fight before you is one of – either you win or you lose. Obama has enunciated in no uncertain terms Amerika is playing a zero-sum insofar as global power and hegemony is concerned. There is no room for a co-ruler. Only Amerika can rule.

    Time to deal across a full spectrum chess board. Time to beef up your Chinese GRU to a funding and manpower equivalent to the notorious and out-of-control American CIA, President Xi. This is the logical move once you discard that unrealistic and timid “non intervention” foreign policy.

    Under postwar consititution Japan are only allowed a self defense force and lost the right to patrol in areas outside of their EEZ. If they involve in any patrols in SCS then Japan has taken offensive posture and breached postwar agreement.

      Japan already breached lots of post war agreements. The San Francisco agreement regarding the Diaoyu island was one of them. In the end, it was not any agreement that is keeping Japan to stay pacifist. It was Japan’s purse that keeping them from irresponsible military adventures. Wining or losing, Japan could not collect indemnity from the SCS other than American’s praise.

    Those planes only flew close to Japan’s territory which are also Chinese and Russian territories. Just because those territories are close to Japan doesn’t mean China and Russia don’t have the right to patrol the area. Japan didn’t seem too concerned when they planned ‘patrol’ on Chinese territory on the SCS faraway from Japan, yet becomes ‘concerned’ over regular patrols along common borders. Aren’t the Japs becoming as paranoid as the yankees?
