Sounds delicious ,mmmmm The I in BRICS is India and the C is China .Agreeing to corporation and talking through some of bad past history makes much more sense . As a example . The Federal Govt. of Canada wanted to get a pipe line through to the west coast but that would mean either talking with First Nations or ignoring them . They decided to ignore them and lost in the courts . The next move was to bring a one time respected politician out from his bank position to negotiate the deal with the Natives . They didn't bother wasting any of his or there time based on past broken promises by the same guy who was in the Federal cabinet at the time but retired suddenly to take up the seat at the bank. The Same guy after failing went into Provincial Politics ,which in my mind was not really being upwardly mobile as far as career decisions go . He is facing a election that does not look good for him .

www.informationclearinghouse.info... Taken in the context with the meeting in Moscow I would suggest that it is very real .
The report’s central theme is that US global dominance is threatened by the rise of China and this process must be reversed by economic, diplomatic and military means.
Significantly, at the beginning of the report, its authors cite the Pentagon’s Defence Planning Guidance document of 1992, produced in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union, which insisted that US strategy had to “refocus on precluding the emergence of any potential future global competitor.”
While asserting that China has a “grand strategy” for regional and ultimately global domination, the authors make clear they regard the threat to the US position as arising from China’s economic growth within the present international order.
This analysis recalls that advanced at the beginning of 1907 by the senior British Foreign Office official Eyre Crowe about the impact on Britain of the rise of Germany. Crowe concluded that, whatever the intentions of its leaders, Germany’s economic expansion, in and of itself, constituted a threat to the British Empire. Seven years later, the two major powers were at war.
China is not an imperialist power as Germany was, but its very economic rise is undermining the US position.

America’s Control Over the World Is Rapidly Eroding
By Michael Payne
May 03, 2015 "Information Clearing House" - "NOC" - It’s no secret that the U.S. is most certainly not the most loved country in the world because of its government’s long history of highly aggressive military actions, as well as its interference in the internal affairs of countless nations. But what we are seeing today is that an increasing number of nations are turning against the U.S. and taking various actions to rid themselves of its presence and influence.
In a recent article entitled, “The Decline and Fall of the United States” David Swanson pointed out that, “Latin American nations are standing up to the United States. Some have kicked out its bases and ceased sending students to the School of the Americas. People are protesting at US bases in Italy, South Korea, England, and at US embassies in the Philippines, Czech Republic, and Ukraine. German courts are hearing charges that it is illegally participating in US drone wars. Pakistani courts have indicted top CIA officials.”
The U.S. Embassy in Libya remains closed; not long ago the embassy in Yemen closed and we can expect others to follow suit in the future. Even if the U.S. is the most powerful militarily, if the nations and people of the world no longer want its presence in their countries, there is little that Washington can do anything about it. The U.S. government’s extremely aggressive military policies are making new enemies at an alarming rate.
