Far From Partners

I don't assume China must be our enemy. But they don't have an attitude that speaks of friendliness.

China's little pet pscho regime, North Korea, is pursuing nuclear weapons that make our allies nervous.

So what does China get upset about when we react to that nuclear threat that China seems unwilling to stop?

The United States is damaging stability in the Asia-Pacific region by positioning a missile defense radar in Japan, China said on Thursday.

Japan, an ally of the United States, has voiced growing anxiety over China's more assertive posture in the East China Sea, where the neighbors are locked in a dispute over control of a group of uninhabited islets.

North Korea has carried out a series of missile tests this year, including two medium-range missiles capable of hitting Japan. Pyongyang has also threatened another nuclear test.

Speaking of idiocy, China's other little pretend partner has its own bit of nonsense:

Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the United States on Friday of endangering global security by imposing a "unilateral diktat" on the rest of the world and shifted blame for the Ukraine crisis onto the West.

Huh. Russia invades a sovereign nation in the sainted international community whose territorial integrity Russia itself had guaranteed, annexing one part of Ukraine (Crimea) while still keeping troops in the eastern part even after the so-called ceasefire was signed), and our opposition to this aggression is "dictating" to the world.

Yeah. We're the one hurting stability. That makes total sense.
