Putin, Jintao sign declaration on world order in 21st century

Excerpt:

MOSCOW, July 1 (RIA Novosti) - The Kremlin talks between Vladimir Putin and Hu Jintao ended with a joint declaration between Russia and China on the world order in the 21st century.

The document, in particular, said: "The world is living through historic changes today. The establishment of a new world order promises to be a long and complicated process."

The document also said that each nation should address its internal affairs independently, and international affairs through dialogue and consultations based on multilateral collective approaches. The international community should also abandon confrontational and blocking strategies, an aspiration for monopoly and domination in international affairs, and give up attempts to divide countries into the leaders and the led.

The document said that Russia and China saw reform of the United Nations as a way "to consolidate its central role in international affairs, to make it more effective, and to increase its ability to respond to new threats and challenges. (end excerpt)

Back in the days of my "Cold War" miliary service I remember our focus wasn't internatonal, but bi-national. That being Russia and China - the Bear and the Dragon.

Since the 'fall' of the Soviet Union many think that the Bear has gone into hybernation, never to wake. We celebrated the fall of communism and the taking down of the Berlin Wall and moved on to other areas of concern.

Yet I remember talking with my Dad - a miliary guy - years ago and we both agreed, that Russia hadn't gone to sleep - just into a state of suspended animation, "Until a more advantageous time". We also agreed - and that has proved to be true - that democracy would never work in Russian, they just don't have it in their blood.

When Ladimir Putin became president of Russia, I became even more convinced that the bear would now begin to awaken. "Signs" began to appear in the news that even further reinforced my beliefs.

I mentioned in this post about Bill Gertz's article - "Chinese Dragon Awakes" in the Washington Times about China's unnoticed miliary buildup.

His article tells us that military analysis are getting real concerned that this buildup is a prelude to an invasion of Taiwan. The US has vowed to defend a Chinese attack.

Back on 30 April 2001, Mr. Gertz wrote that, " The Russians have been practicing nuclear intervention against the U.S. troops on Taiwan in a mock nuclear conflict between China and the United States over Taiwan. During these strategic exercises they included Russian preparations to use nuclear weapons on U.S. forces in Asia."

No doubt September 11th, 2001 changed our focus to global terrorism and off of 'traditional threats', so this story sort of went to the wayside.

Until now...

For this agreement brings up another cause for alarm. Could Russia help China take Taiwan? For what reason would Russia do that?

Exactly for the reasons this agreement stipulates:

"The international community should also abandon confrontational and blocking strategies, an aspiration for monopoly and domination in international affairs, and give up attempts to divide countries into the leaders and the led.

"The document said that Russia and China saw reform of the United Nations as a way "to consolidate its central role in international affairs, to make it more effective, and to increase its ability to respond to new threats and challenges."

What "reform" of the US?

It's simple, Russian resents the "only real world superpower" label that is placed on the US as does China. It's the "By myself I am not strong enough, but if by two - we can overcome." While China has enormous manpower on the ground their air/ground and sea forces are no match for the US. Yet China's buildup isn't an illusion - the Dragon is preparing for something, and it isn't a parade. If Russia would help them in the interest of "new world order

Our analysis do well to keep a suspicious eye on everything these two nations are planning and let's not delude ourselves that they simply want to become "just like us". It may very well be that they simple want to "minimize" us.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
