Russia has said China is largely "in agreement" over Ukraine, after other world powers condemned Moscow for sending troops into the country. ... Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov discussed Ukraine by telephone with his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, on Monday, and claimed they had "broadly coinciding points of view" on the situation there, according to a ministry statement. ... Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang said: "China has always upheld the principles of diplomacy and the fundamental norms of international relations. "At the same time we also take into consideration the history and the current complexities of the Ukrainian issue."SOON, THE CHINESE WILL MAKE A MOVE ON "DISPUTED TERRITORY"...
... AND THE NORTH KOREANS AND IRANIANS WILL FOLLOW SUIT.
ALL THIS IS SQUARELY THE RESULT OF OBAMA'S POLICIES OF APPEASEMENT, RETREAT, AND DEMILITARIZATION.
"SMART DIPLOMACY" AND THE "RESET" ARE NOT (AS SOME PREFER TO SAY) EUPHEMISMS FOR INCOMPETENCE, COWARDICE, AND FECKLESSNESS;
THEY ARE COVERS FOR A POSTMODERN LEFTIST FOREIGN POLICY THAT HAS SOUGHT TO WEAKEN THE WEST AND JUDEO-CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION BY DISMANTLING THE USA'S ABILITY TO PROJECT POWER AND KEEP THE PEACE -
BY ENLARGING THE WELFARE STATE AND OUR DEBT,
BY SHRINKING OUR MILITARY,
AND BY SHRINKING OUR SPHERE OF INFLUENCE BY PRESSURING ALLIES AND ASSUAGING OUR FOES.
WE CAN'T FIX THIS UNTIL 2016 - AND BY THEN IT MIGHT BE TOO LATE.
