I disagree. China has Russia's back diplomatically right now. But China plays a game that is long term. They'll turn their back on Russia in a heart beat, let the west and Russia fight it out, then make a move to take what they really want. The Pacific.

Please note that Russia is as different From China as the US is...

He is using a very very laughable source.
Defencenet is a JOKE.
There is not a single intelligent person who takes that site seriously.
They post so much rubbish and nonsense I don't know where to begin.
Take whatever they post, unless you have seen another source that HAS Credibility, with a fine grain of salt.
Defencenet is just as bad as Debka.
