My opinion is that Putin is using China to become an economic force so that Russia can survive all of the economic/political traps and sanctions we’ve laid for them. The deep state is foaming at the mouth for war and they’d love to blame Russia for it, even though we’ve been creating wars for decades as a means to finance our political ‘world police’ agenda.
Let’s not forget that we and Europe, through NATO, have effectively surrounded Russia and we continue to provoke Putin to act, which we can then use as an excuse for war. The deep state (and Israel) have been trying to start a war in Syria for 4 yrs but Putin keeps diffusing the situation and so did Trump when he sent off missles to an abandoned airbase as a diversion and an empty action.
I’m not saying Putin is a saint but I think he wants peace, and so does Tump, which is more than can be said for Europe, the deep state, Israel, and a host of other countries who are run by satanists and who want a 3rd world war, in fulfillment of their hero, Albert Pike, and his plan for the unveiling of the anti-Christian, post-catholic, godless society they dream of.
