Did you think you Xi was your buddy, Putin?

China can triple down on spying on Russia. What are the Ruskies gonna do? They can't even afford to write an angry letter to the only life raft left for Russia's tattered economy. Putin's legacy was to unequivocally turn Moscow into Beijing's satellite. Good jerb.

Gonna go out in a limb & say that the actual charge is "not making the pew pews blow up more Ukrainians."

This just shows why breaking up NATO was such a priority of Putin when he had his asset running the U.S. Russia and China are basically islands upon themselves strategically. They do not have a series of strategic alliances of nations with modern militaries who can interoperate under a unified command structure as the United States and its military alliances. These nations, especially NATO have industrial manufacturing capabilities, both commercial and military; with the R&D to match. Both Russian and Chinese tactical allies depend on Russia and China for it. Heck Russian military allies need Russian military assets to quell civil unrest in their own countries. India just uses them to play the U.S. for better terms from U.S. deals. India would never enter any armed conflicts against the U.S. on their side. Now Russia is basically begging Iran for drones. China while in a better position than Russia, still has no real allies. Also Chinese tech innovation is more taken from the west by hook or by crook, than innovated in house.

Yup, came here to say it's kind of funny -- and terrifying, in a way -- to see how effectively China is turning Russia into a vassal state.  All because Putin just had to have Ukraine for some damn reason.

Meh, everybody spies on everybody.  The Chinese just seem to be the most brash about it.

It honestly wouldn't surprise me if we learn that Xi manipulated Putin into invading.

Nah, Russia has always had an inferiority complex with everything to their west.  And wants to prove it deserves to be at the Big Boy Table because it is a Real Big Boy Nation, Seriously **foot stomp**  Saying China had to manipulate Russia into invading Ukraine is like saying you had to manipulate a morbidly obese 4yo into eating chocolate cake - even if you did happen to egg him on, he was gonna anyway.

Not everything is 63821-D manipulation by a shadowy cabal.

I wonder if the hypersonic missiles don't really work and this is just a way to publicly off the guy that was previously held as a hero.

UncleDirtNap: International rule #1: China will steal from anyone.


That has been their MO for quite a few decades now.  The fact that US corporations ignore this fact in exchange for short term profits is sad.  China reverse engineer anything given to them if possible and use it for their own benefit.  The CHIPS bill passing is a major thing as perhaps the US can now reduce this and let China slowly collapse upon itself.

Third scientist arrested for treason this summer, eh? Not great for the future. Not going to have much luck developing useful new weapons in that environment.

We won't have much luck in the U.S. either, if enough Repub pols go the DeSantis route and defund all the universities they deem "woke indoctrinators".

remember last summer when china was buying *all* the food they could get their hands on?  they knew well in advance what was going down.

russia will be run by the golden horde, again. moscow will be relegated to 4th rate tourist destination for chinese nationals it always has been destined to be.

The Mongols were not Chinese, nor was China under the Golden Horde.  In the very loosest, technical sense, you can almost argue that the Golden Horde was under the Yuan Dynasty, but it is like saying Cumbria is a department of France because the King of England was the Duke of Normandy, ie the best sort of correct that means not a tinker's damn to anyone not a rules-lawyering incel.

Please.  The only places in Russia where China doesn't have spies are the places they don't need them -- either because there's nothing worth spying on or because they're getting the job done with embedded hardware and software.

Not that Russia is the only victim, but they're low-hanging fruit.

If we could rein in our oligarchy and force our corporations to decouple from Chinese manufacturing we could not only vastly improve our own economy but dump China's back into the 3 Kingdoms era.

Fanfic?  The Bear and The Dragonwas written in 2000 Subby.

Also, it was pre-Pooty Poo so Russia was conceivably a good guy.  Too bad that storyline didn't play out in real life.
