Russia and China oppose foreign military intervention to implement régime change in Syria. President Vladimir Putin and Paramount Leader Hu Jintao signed an Outline Joint Statement during President Putin’s official visit to the PRC. Their Joint Statement said:
The two parties emphasise that as further development of the situation in Syria is essential to peace and stability in the Middle East and for the world as a whole, they are strongly in favour of the need to find a peaceful and just settlement of the Syrian crisis without outside intervention, through a cessation of violence by all parties to the conflict and the establishment of a comprehensive political dialogue. Russia and China strongly oppose attempts by external parties to use force to resolve the Syrian crisis, including moves at the UN Security Council, in order to implement régime change. The two parties are convinced of the need to strengthen and consolidate international support for the mediation efforts of Special UN-Arab League Envoy Kofi Annan to resolve the Syrian crisis. They urge all parties to the conflict to accomplish an immediate cessation of armed confrontation, the full implementation of the Annan six-point peace plan, and the carrying out of the relevant UN Security Council resolutions.
Russia and China Oppose the Use of Force and Threats Against Tehran
Russia and China oppose the use of armed force or the threat of force, they don’t approve the implementation of excessive pressure on Iran and the adoption of unilateral sanctions against it, they support the intensification of negotiations on the questions surrounding Iran’s nuclear programme, to seek a peaceful resolution through dialogue and negotiation instead of having a confrontation with Iran. Such a confrontation is fraught with serious negative consequences, not only for the region, but also for the international community as a whole, especially when one sees it against the background of general instability in Afghanistan, the Middle East, and North Africa.
Putin and Hu Welcomed the Granting of Observer Status in the SCO to Afghanistan
Russia and China favour the establishment of Afghanistan as a peaceful, stable, independent, developing country free from terrorism and drug-related crime. Russia and China welcome the granting of the status of an observer at the SCO to Afghanistan; they also believe that there’s a necessity to focus on the development and improvement of existing regional cooperation structures involving Afghanistan, such as the SCO, to avoid reducing their efficiency of interaction as a result of overlapping mechanisms.
Putin and Hu Urged the Resumption of Talks on the Korean Peninsula
Russia and China strongly oppose any act prejudicial to the peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula, as well as any action not conducive to the denuclearisation of the region; they hope that the states concerned will exercise restraint to avoid further aggravation of the situation on the peninsula. They believe that dialogue and consultation are the only effective means of resolving the situation on the Korean Peninsula. Russia and China call on the countries concerned for an early resumption of the Six-Party Talks and a balanced settlement of the concerns of each party through peaceful means, in order to establish long-term stability. They confirm that the maintenance of peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and a responsibly-executed denuclearisation of the region are the common aspirations of all the parties concerned. The realisation of this objective is essential to the maintenance of peace, stability, and security in the Asia-Pacific Region.

All of us have noted Wafflin’ Willy’s move to the extreme right. It’s had its effects, to be sure… none of them good for the USA and the future. His blustering threats have moved China and Russia closer to an actual military alliance, and have moved Russia and China to give Iran tacit assurances of support. GWB used black sites, torture, indefinite detention, aggressive war, and indiscriminate attacks on civilians… and Willy wants more of the same. Obama’s not used these methods to the extent that the Republicans did (in fact, the torture at black sites HAS ceased). In short, GWB, Cheney, and all those who plotted and carried out the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were war criminals under the definitions of the Nürnberg Trials, and, frankly, they deserve to hang (don’t hold your breath… the perpetrators of Wounded Knee and Dresden died of old age in bed).
Ergo, as Willy supports the same policies, the choice is clear and stark. You can vote for Barack Obama, and vote for a VERY imperfect social democracy, or you can vote for Willy and vote for evil so profound that one could call it “Anti-Christian”. The Apocalypse tells us that the Antichrist will be so subtle that “he will fool the elect”… that means that it’ll look “pretty” on the surface but be utterly evil and crawling with maggots on the inside. The Republican Party of today not only wishes to undo what FDR did… it wishes to undo what TR did, and unleash an unfettered amoral brutish corporate dictatorship. It’ll be under the rubric of “economic freedom”… that is, “I’m free to fuck you royally, if I have the means to do so, and the state won’t stop or hinder me”.
THAT is why Russia and China are coming together… they have serious differences, but they see that the USA is an out-of-control rogue state, and that if Willy’s elected, it’ll be a ravening beast that’ll require their joint efforts to put down.
President Putin and Leader Hu have done the only right thing. God bless them. We may have peace in our time as a result…
