Busy weekend for China watchers

There was enough this weekend for Canada to have its own category today, just a couple of items below Condoleezza Rice's naive hope that Communist China will be helpful in reining in its Iranian allies.

Why do these people, such as Rice, continue to make such insane statements that defy all evidence?

Both Red China and Russia will provide whatever assistance to the Islamists in hopes of keeping them fighting elsewhere and of weakening the West.

China and Russia are not striving for an ideological win. Its about control of resources, which they desire to wrench from the grip of anglo-american dominance. They will use the Islamists as best they can, and vice versa.

Money and Power.

The European Union is an example of a failing (failed)attempt at the same.

For us in the West, its not so much of a national enterprise as a powerful small group that uses its own gov't and population along the way, for personal (corporate) profit. Is it the same in China/Russia? Will any gains in control of important resources filter down to benefit their populations?
