    China never had any allies

    Political analyst Vladislav Inozemtsev presents one of the most daring approaches on world’s triangle of power: Russia, USA and China.

    Russia is unlikely to ever become a true ally for Beijing or Washington. Neither the United States nor China really wants an equal partnership with Russia. They would gladly accept Russia as a satellite; a resource supplier, no problem; a lower level geopolitical player, maybe.

    China poses as big a threat as we allow it to. There are no hordes of immigrants crossing over from China into Russia, or into Vietnam or India, for that matter. The Chinese are “infiltrating” other countries in a different way. They arrive and start businesses, something they always do tenaciously and professionally. Their working efficiency and dedication are legendary. Moreover, the nation itself must take full credit for that, as its success was not due to abundant mineral resources or a favorable market situation. It was their own success.

    For Russia, it is a question of whether or not we let them in; whether we encourage their business immigration or not. That is Russia’s problem.

    It would be wrong to believe that the Chinese are invading our lands and we cannot block them. If we do not want them to settle in Russia’s Far East, they won’t be able to. The problem is rooted in fake work permits, and visas obtained in return for bribes. I do not think China poses any real geopolitical danger to Russia. There is another danger, though: China’s economy is growing rapidly and the country is expanding its industrial niche on the international markets. This may with time limit Russia’s chances of growing into an industrial economy. China is gaining a firm foothold on the international markets, thus closing the markets to our products.

    Russia and China are rivals because, while Russia is mainly exporting resources now, it could and should manufacture industrial products from these resources. In my opinion, Russia’s next step along the modernization road should be transition from the resource-based economy to an industrial economy. Further steps would be a post-industrial economy, and then a research-intensive and innovation-based economy, some fifty years from now. This means Russia will claim the niche currently occupied by China, which will not give it up without a fight.

    In this sense, China is a barrier to Russia’s modernization, but not a threat – not a potential military aggressor or anything like that.

    Actually you have made a mistake here, There are loads of Chinese immigrants crossing over into Russia, however, they are illegal. They are crossing the border into Russia and settling there. In other words, parts of Russia are becoming Chinese. Cause for conflict no?

    Indeed. Russia is fast becoming a police state again, and behind every power figure in Russia can be seen the black frocked and hooded Russian Orthodox priests. Within the next 10 years don't be suprised to see Russia becoming a theocratic police state, just as it was pre 1917.

    China can never be a friend to any one. Check this: Brotherhood: Can China be a Friend of any Country?:. The whole world is concerned about terrorism and democracy. Where as China is in front line with nuclear technology offered to Pakistan. Pakistan is fast building nuclear bombs and no one knows what is the number she needs and why she is building many times more than needed as a deterrent. The only reason may be this is forced on Pakistan by the terrorists and terrorist shall soon be carrying these in their pockets. Terrorists in Pakistan are getting out of control and if the world is to be made secure then action as given in this article is necessary. Brotherhood: Demon Bhasmasur Strikes Back:
    There is only 1 religion in the universe. There is only one god in the universe and that is the "ENERGY" Brotherhood is the only necessity of the mankind. Religion as understood by people is nothing but set of rules and method of worship. Let religion be limited to worship alone and that to in private places. Read more Here.
