China Slams US Over Russian Sanctions; Warns "Will Escalate Tensions"

Tyler Durden's picture


Having previously called Russia a "good neighbor, good partner, and good friend," it seems increasingly clear that the West faces not just Russia but China too as it brings more sanctions to bear. As The BRICS Post reports, Beijing announced its support for a beleaguered Moscow, calling on all parties to resolve the crisis, and warning that they "believe that sanctions are inconducive to the solution of problems. On the contrary, they will escalate tensions."


As The BRICS Post reports,

Beijing announced its support for a beleaguered Moscow after the US and Canada announced fresh sanctions against Russia for it’s alleged “inaction” in easing tensions in Ukraine.


In a public signal of increasing Sino-Russian cooperation, China called on all parties to resolve the Ukrainian crisis through dialogue rather than sanctions, Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said Monday.


“We believe that sanctions are inconducive to the solution of problems. On the contrary, they will escalate tensions,” he said.


It is not in line with any side’s interests to impose sanctions, he added. “We call on all parties concerned to continue dialogue and negotiations so to resolve the crisis in a political way.”


Qin told a daily press briefing that China has been in touch with all relevant nations, including G7 nations, since the Ukrainian crisis erupted, and made clear the nation’s stance on the issue.

Hardly reassuring for all those 'believers' that US businesses will remain unaffected as sanctions are ratcheted up

Beijing’s support for its ally comes ahead of a strategic visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin to Shanghai next month where he will hold talks with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.

There is no upside to selling more crap to the US.  China and Russia alliance makes more sense.  Russia has oil/gas and China can produce consumer goods for Russia.  China no longer wants IOUs.  TNote, etc. are worthless.

Sanctions are an American right of passage!!!  Its the ultimate act of junior high bullying, when you dont "like" something or dont get your way, you want to "punish" the "bad people" not giving you your way!!

In Acedmia, this is explained as sociopathic behavior, unless your Country is doing it, then of course its called politics!

Right, TPTB are going to be sending a complete dunce.

It's all shaping up JUST as I've predicted.  When one isn't blinded by Party Pussy shit it's quite easy to see it all line up...

TPTB KNOW that they need to get business back to the US in order to calm the brewing discontent.  ALL that you're seeing helps "bring back the jobs."  It gives cover to allow all those companies to return to the US.  And the BONUS is that we'll all be sold on this as a BIG WIN, when what it's doing is to subsidize Big Corp's relocation fees: change is inevitible, and it was always only a matter of time before China's environment turned for US/West interests there.

Sorry, these folks are thinking WAY above you (and most).  Just because you cannot make sense out of it all doesn't mean that what they are doing is based in stupidity.

Why change something that works so well. 

Just as the left right paradigm is still alive and kicking (see posts above laying it solely on Barry's shoulders), so too is the 'Russian Communist threat'.

I haven't spoken to people on the street, and I don't watch MSM news, so I may be wrong, but I will bet besides buying time, the Geneva accord is to gather support in the US. By making the accord and then pointing out all the times Russia has broken it, it reinforces that they are the aggressors and it doesn't matter how many times the US has. It is to convince those already convinced about Russia that they need to do more, ie, send weapons and more.

Yup.  I think they all know that it's all heading (back) to regionalism.  All are up against Mother Nature.

In the US TPTB are setting the stage to get eveyone to accept paying for corporate move-backs to the US.

Europe is going to have a lot of shuflfing to do.  The US not so much: pretty good geographical arrangement plus two neighbors that are fairly compatable.  Middle East will be interesting, as usual.  The really odd ducks out are Japan, South Korea and Australia.  Oh, and Russia and China will cement relationships.

Unfortunately for us, our "leaders" obviously have little to no experience with game theory other then "hulk smash". It's quite painful to watch.

Yup...the Grandmasters, even when playing a patzer, will never attack with just one piece and only when mostly all pieces have been mobilized/developed.

Chess at that level is a game of space and time and the determination to utilize multiple tactics to achieve a strategic goal.

While everyone is going to suffer from a big hit on paper-work, Russia, Canada and the US will suffer the least, as they are the top PHYSICAL resource countries in the world.

The US can, it will eventually have to do it anyway (empires don't last forever), just pull out from around the globe and return to a fairly cozy home, protect it's borders and let the rest of the world handle the costs for policing the world.

I'll take a guess. The "market" as it's called, is being used as a proxy for the state of affairs in America. Seemingly random gyrations, within a normalized scope would indicate that things are business as usual. Even when they aren't. Although for that to be true the market would have to be under someone's complete control. Ha. Ha. Aahhhh but that's not possible...

So that's just a guess lol

After reading many of these comments, it's clear to me many don't understand that a war with Russia/China is exactly what Obama wants.  He will be assisted by a willing military, a willing media, a willing CIA/NSA, a willing banking cabal and 45% of this nation's braindead voters.  He has only two years left to finish destruction of the USA, and a planetary war will be just the ticket he needs, whether that war is military or economic or both.  Destruction of the USA, as founded, has always been his dream. Obama is not feckless, he is not an amateur, he is not a bumbler.  He is pushing this nation in exactly the direction he wants.  Whether the USA wins or loses, he wins.

What makes anyone believe the Germans won't fight against the US.  We've wiretapped their leaders  and their citizenry, we've stolen their gold, we have flooded the world with worthless paper money, and Vickie Nuland was recently heard on tape saying 'fuck the EU', moments before the Obama/Hillary/Kerry regime engineered the revolt in Ukraine.  And, last century, we beat their asses in two world wars.  Why should Germans side with the USA?  Obama doesn't need an obvious grand plan.  He wants the destruction of this nation.  For that , he only needs to invite our enemies inside the gates.  Details are not his strong suit. He doesn't need 'obvious mistakes and false starts."  By "driving them (our collected enemies) to a unified front," he achieves exactly that.

The market goes up because the USA is playing the bad cop.  China looks to play the good cop.  With capital fleeing Russia, Russia is being delivered to the Chinese.  The Chinese will take Russia under their wing and politely work a few deals.  At any point, China can put distance in their relationship with Russia and Russia will be the bad guy.

Russia knows this is how the game is played.  Russia does not care.  The world wonders if the Ukraine can survive as a whole.  The Russian elite wonder if they can survive as a whole.  Russia only places value on Russia.  The rest of the world does not count. 

China understands that its role in the world leans towards it being a global policeman, similar to the USA and Britain.  That means they get to be the good cop in dealing with Russia.  China needs to spread it's wings for the benefit of all mankind.  I'm certain the actions of Russia is generating discussion within China.  The Chinese will understand how to deal with Russia so that Chinese interests are enhanced.  Russia, by itself, cannot deliver value to China.  Trading off Russia, at the right opportunity, can generate a great deal of value to China.

Let's see how things turn out.

Since China supports Crimea's decision to self-detrmination, I suppose, it is time to open up discussion about referendums in Taiwan, Tibet and Xinjiang about which country they want to stay with.

"I suppose, it is time to open up discussion about referendums in"

That's up to those people.  This WILL happen, though.  Rather than some total, global unification ala NWO (someone call up George H.W. Bush and tell him his claim that it WOULD happen [] seems to be suffering problems), it's going to be regionalization.

'China and Russia through the chaotic prism of destiny ,have a 'Rainbow of Prostrated` Symbiotic`Servitude' for one another?'

Both began with tumultuous civil wars at the cusp of the 19th,-- 20th century.   *(Qing Dynasty // Romanov Dynasty) 

Strange bedfellows[?]: "The Russo-Japanese War" 8/Feb/1904 -- 5/Sept/1905 

The Japanese won... what, was supposed to be a suicide mission against the mighty Russian Empire. The Russian's would not forget, but, it opened up the realities for a Bolshevik revolution down the road at an opportune time?

The Russian's during [concurrent?]the Two (separate)-Chinese Civil Wars were now fast becoming the people's choice for a fledgling communist Bolshevik's party. With WWI still raging they were now fighting their own Civil [1917-21] War. The sad fact that 20 million lives were lost in Russia's civil war, brought on by war, an untimely famine and the usual filthy epidemic that always follows carnage-- not to forget the millions that just fled the country. There was an empathy for the Chinese communist people after the Bolshevik's defeated the Tsar!

Ironically Stalin funded both the Nationalist Party[Chiang Kai-shek] & the soviet Chinese Party [Mao Zedong] making the war protracted to help itself in WWII against Japan whom had aligned with Germany as did Russia partially in the beginning. Strange shit happens in war?!?

Needless to say Russia lands on the winning side in WWII and Stalin does Truman a favor by signing the 'Potsdam Declaration' for Japan's surrender. Stalin agrees and amasses ~1.5 million troops on the Manchurian border and invades Aug.9,1945 the day the 2nd H-Bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan. The war with Japan ends Aug. 14, 1945. Russia frees up China from Japan and the real Civil War begins with Russia giving much of Manchuria back to China and Mongolian territory back to a newly independent Mongolia a year later.

Stalin now helps the soviet-Communist with logistics, weapons, and military training. Needless to say the soviet-Communist under Mao Zedong wins, and the Communist Party of China [CPC} is created. Note: Stalin disliked Chiang and was furious that the USA, British, wanted to Bring China's Nationalist Party into the Big Three, making it the Big Four. Stalin boycotted the UN- San Fran Treaty because of the USA's partiality to Nationalist Chiang Kai-shek. The Nationalist were bannished from China's mainland to Taiwan (Formosa) now known as the Republic of China (ROC), forever (???) enemy's of communist China, but never used in the same lanuage/terminology as China's hatred for Japan!!! 

On China's 28th (1949) Anniversary celebrating Communist China-- Chairman Mao had this to say about Russia: 'If there had been no Soviet Union, there would have not been a Chinese Communist Party'.      Modern History Source Book: Mao Zedong:: 'The People's Democratic Dictatorship' (6/30/1949)        

This is how deep they go? But, there are times neighbors all  must grow-up? Not necessarily outgrow each other?  "The Sino-Soviet Split"   (1956- 1966-69)

Bonus: The Japanese wanted the 'WHOLE" of China, not just Manchuria/ Mongolia and the Korea's... they eventually wanted it all, an were brutal to the Chinese people. Treated worse than farm animals, as 3rd class (Jap's, Korean's, Han`serfs) caste-aways?-- as the free world looked on and did nothing!!!  

'Chinese Civil War'  

The only country that helped was Russia... and China will forever be greatful, period! For what it sees now is all to reminiscent of what surpression Japan had put them through.


thankyou Tyler
