There is overwhelming evidence to suggest that
communists have attacked western democracies by influencing social change, rather than risking a frontal assault. Their campaign has been extremely
successful, fulfilling the establishment of: radical feminism, the destruction of the family unit, the reduction of religious influence on our culture, and the reduction of small arm ownership (world-wide).
But what we do know of their aims, fails to reveal anything more than a hint of the danger which we are actually facing.
What follows is an article discussing the Shanghai Agreement reached between the Russians and the Chinese - it amounts to nothing less than a military
arrangement, although they'll likely not focus on that aspect much.
It's interesting because: 1. Russia is supposedly a free and democratic country in the eyes of our cranially-vacant media and government. and
2. Because both of these countries were declared to be non-threats, even worse, allies at times, by the previous U.S. administration - showing how corrupt it in fact was.
3. Arms sales to China by Russia have been continually escalating, despite claims that the "cold war is over".
4. If Russia and China are our
"friends" as the liberals in the west have told us, why do they view starwars as such a threat? And, moreover, why are they forming an alliance
in order to reduce the influence of their "friend - the U.S." in the world?

Analysis: China, Russia sewing up Eurasia

WASHINGTON -- One of the most important foreign-policy articles to appear in
the mainstream U.S. press in years ran in the Outlook section of the Washington Post on Sunday.
At a time when triumphal voices still dominate the American media about the United States' apparently eternal global leadership, the article served
notice that under President Bush that clout is vanishing faster than morning dew in the Sahara.
Constantine Menges was a special assistant for national security affairs to President Ronald Reagan 20 years ago and is now a senior fellow at the
Hudson Institute in Washington. He warned U.S. policy-makers that the Shanghai Pact, signed on June 15 by Russia, China and four Central Asian nations between them, is the foundation of a Eurasian military-geostrategic alliance.
The agreement aims, Menges wrote, to sweep U.S. influence out of the Eurasian heartland and, eventually, contain and isolate the United States,
just as the NATO alliance eventually did to the Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact allies. Menges noted that the Shanghai Pact nations already have a combined population of 1.5 billion and combined conventional military manpower of 3.6 million. He also noted that Iran, Mongolia and Turkmenistan have already made clear they want to join the pact, a development that would add another 78 million people to the pact and raise its combined military forces to 4.2 million.
The pact was overshadowed at the time in Western (especially American) eyes by Bush's supposedly triumphal trip through Europe.
The presidential travels were notable first for Bush's blanket dismissal of the concerns of all 15 European Union heads of government over his policies
on missile defense and global warming. At the Slovenian castle of Brdo, he then met President Vladimir Putin of Russia, who had flown in right after
signing the historic Shanghai Pact session with Chinese President Jiang Zemin.
Right after Putin had joined the most far-reaching military alliance in 46 years to counter and threaten U.S. global power since the 1955 Warsaw Pact,
Bush proclaimed him a man worthy of his trust. The U.S. president then announced he had a sense of the soul of the former director of the Russian
domestic security service and KGB spy. Bush also announced during that trip - his first to Europe as president - in a speech clearly meant to be
historic in the Polish capital, Warsaw, that he supported continued expansion of NATO into Eastern Europe. What that effectively meant was that
Bush would push to get the three Baltic states - Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, with their combined population of barely 7 million - into the
alliance set up to counter the Soviet Union, from which all three declared independence in 1991.
The combined military power that the three former Soviet republics would bring to NATO is precisely zero. The already-real military might that Russia
and China bring to each other in the Shanghai Pact is awesome. The military power of the United States is shrinking by the day. And if Bush and his
defense secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, have their way, it is going to very rapidly shrink a lot further.
Rumsfeld needs to save money out of the annual U.S. defense budget to pay for the anti-ballistic missile program he so loves. He also needs to do so
because of the fiscal constraints of Bush's $1.3 trillion tax cut, which is already law.
Therefore the defense secretary has already announced that he wants to scrap the doctrine that U.S. armed forces must - at least in theory - be capable
of fighting two conventional wars at the same time.
But translated into plain language out of the soothing mantras of Pentagon strategists and White House spin doctors, this represents a stark and simple
reality: If Iraq threatens Kuwait and China threatens Taiwan at the same time, the United States will only be able to deploy full military power to
protect or rescue one of those small allies at the same time.
The creation of the Shanghai Pact makes such a grim scenario far more likely. As Menges pointed out in his Washington Post essay, it appears to have been deliberately modeled on the Warsaw Pact, except on a far grander scale.
And just as the Warsaw Pact codified and confirmed, for another 35 years, Soviet military and political control of Central Europe, the Shanghai Pact
is expressly designed to nail down joint Russian-Chinese control of the vast regions of Eurasia.
The very fact that it has been signed, combined with the continued shrinkage in conventional U.S. military capabilities decreed by Bush and Rumsfeld, has
another geostrategic consequence that has already begun.
Bush and his national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, may continue to echo the empty rhetoric of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright that
the United States remains the indispensable global power. But the cold geopolitical reality - thanks to Shanghai - is that, across at least 11 of
the 24 time zones of the earth, the United States has already been dispensed with.
From its NATO allies Poland in Central Europe and Turkey in the Middle East, Washington has no effective or reliable allies all the way to South Korea on
the northeastern fringe of Asia.
Turkey already faces the prospect of being denied entry into the European Union by France, Germany and Greece. And South Korea, dependent on the good
will of neighboring giant China and historically distrustful of democratic, pro-U.S. Japan, is likely to face steadily increasing pressure from Beijing,
backed by her Shanghai partners, to force out the 37,000 U.S. troops still stationed there.
While most of the U.S. media shrugged off the significance of the Shanghai Pact, we did not. The Russia-China partnership has global implications. It
means U.S. economic and strategic interests in Central Asia may already be assessed as dead. And, as Menges noted, the threat to U.S. global leadership
does not end there. In fact, it's just the beginning.
The article drags on, but I think you get the idea - the balance of power has been up-ended by the very country whom the U.S. has been supporting with
so many greenbacks - Russia. Russia has also been active shoring up support in Venezuela where the president pledged to aid Russia in increasing its
influence in the Caribbean. Say, didn't China just buy up the Panama Canal with one of its "front companies"? Hmm.
How stupid and complacent the west has become - and we have our media, and schools to thank. Oh, but wait, weren't those communist targets as well? WHY YES!
What's that? Stop being so intolerant or you'll send me for re-education? I think I better go now comrade - we'll discuss this further in our citizen rehabilitation group (in between lashings of course).
The global implications of the Shanghai pact cannot be understated. The U.S. will isolate itself. America is most complacent, more so than prior to the great wars. The U.S. will continue to push its missile defense plan, but this plan has no international support and not a great deal of home support either.
The Shanghai pact comes at a significant time. The U>S> cannot sell anyone on its missle defence shield. Canada made it clear the government here was pulling for Gore in the election he and the Demos tried to fix. The Shanghai pact is an attempt to marginalize the U.S. The communists control and run the UN with a little help from their arab friends.
Can there be or was there any doubt ever about the clicking of these two comie nations? Much was made about past boundry disputes between China and Russia. Although there was a difference of opinion over where the line was marked in these litigation problems, there was never a question about where they both stood when it came to the west. The Shanghai pact proves how close these two can work and unite for a common purpose. The missile defense plan may have some fallout implications as far as Canada is concerned in that the Americans are only looking after themselves and shot down missiles would be coming down over Canada, at least that is the intent.
