#1 BRI is a red herring. It's the Chinese making the best of a horrible situation.

Transportation by land is 14 times more expensive than by sea. The US Navy rules the waves. BRI will never amount to anything.

But it sure is great watching our "allies" in old Europe cozy up to the commies. Some friends they are. Good luck with your new comrades, I'm sure they'll let them rip you off for $150 billion a year like Uncle Sam, I mean Uncle Sap does.

"Horrible" how? If it were the US, you'd be bemoaning NeoCons and US Military-Industrial Hegemony™/Colonialism. You are transparent

#3 a perfidious neo-imperial debt trap set up by Yellow Peril 2.0 are vastly exaggerated.

#4 It looks to me like we and Russia should be on the same side, at least in a global sense. We are both going to lose ground to China on our own but together we might keep a balance.

Putin wants to play Italy to China's Germany in the next war. Maybe Putin thinks Russia is Germany to China's Italy. Who knows. The point is that he is, for some reason or other, joined at the waist with Xi Jinping. I'd say the primary reason is that China doesn't care about what conquests Russia makes as long as China gets a free hand in its targeted geography, the Western Pacific and possibly Central Asia. Whereas Washington will balk at Russian territorial expansion, even if the US and Russia are allied.
