      In Siberia, more than 3,000 Chinese troops joined Russian soldiers for the country’s biggest military drills since the Soviet era.

      China and Russia regularly cooperate in bilateral exercises. But this is the first time that Moscow has integrated Chinese forces into its annual strategic exercises typically reserved for Russia’s closest allies: drones, paratroopers, artillery and warplanes deployed in mock battles.

      This year’s Vostok (“east”) drills have been billed by the Russian military as the biggest since 1981, involving about 300,000 Russian service members, more than 1,000 aircraft, 36,000 tanks and scores of ships over the next week.

      The addition of the Chinese units underscores a potentially major shift: Two countries that had long considered each other potential military adversaries are now partners in confronting the United States.

      “Both countries are trying to signal: If the United States pushes too far, we are going to move closer to each other,” said Alexander Gabuev, chairman of the Russia in the Asia-Pacific Program at the Carnegie Moscow Center think tank.

      Washington is fighting a trade war with China and imposing mounting sanctions on Russia. The Trump administration has reoriented the U.S. national security strategy toward “great power competition” with Russia and China, describing both countries as seeking to “shape a world antithetical to U.S. values and interests.”


      So watch everyone get in a frenzy, but keep in mind neither of these countries are our friends even though Trump loves Putin and wants a good deal with China what it boils down too is lack of cold hard cash that both countries want back. They show their strength of their war toys and I can't help but to think if their show is more than just a game, but instead practice on the field.

          Stop peeing your pants on this. We do it, NATO does it. It's all about preparedness for worst case scenarios dreamed up by the politicians and bankers. America starts wargaming clear down to the level of video games called "shooters." Little factoid about those: Amped up to Army standards those games are used by US Army, USMC, USAF, and USCG to help the troops hone their skills, cheaply.

              Thanks for posting this. It's imperative that we keep up with China and Russia and be able to defeat them both at the same time if necessary.

                  Very large exercises are there was exercises for higher command officers to train and to work out what can go wrong on a larger scale. It could be a signal, but more likely the message is directed to themselves, to start to guess how good they really are was opposed to what they think they are.
