China: Russia Humiliates Arrogant US Warship in Baltic Sea

submit to reddit

The mouthpiece of the ruling Chinese Communist Party asserts that Russia “humiliated” an “arrogant” United States with its warplane passes near a U.S. missile destroyer in the Baltic Sea on Tuesday, an incident that the Pentagon described as a “simulated attack”.

Video released by the U.S. military yesterday shows two Sukhoi SU-24 warplanes conducting repeated close attack passes near a U.S. guided missile destroyer which was located at only about 70 nautical miles away from Russian territory.

U.S. military officials later described the maneuvers as some of the most aggressive interactions in recent memory.

However, an editorial in the Global Times, an official mouthpiece for China’s ruling Communist Party, characterizes the incident as a huge blow to American prestige.

“The Russian pilots have demonstrated high professional skills to conduct such extremely dangerous maneuvers,” states the editorial. “The US military, which intends to provoke Russia in the Baltic Sea, was humiliated by its Russian counterpart instead. The US must feel furious.”

The piece goes on to portray the warplane activity as an “embodiment of Putin,” who has helped achieve a power balance between Russia and the United States by repeatedly standing up to “arrogant US pressure”.

Moscow will continue to use military provocations to challenge Washington even as its economy crumbles, asserts the editorial.

The fact that China, which is still embroiled in tensions with the U.S. over America’s involvement in the South China Sea dispute, is praising Russia’s willingness to use its military muscle to antagonize Washington, is perhaps not a great sign of things to come.

As Reuters reported last year, the Global Times is an, “Influential nationalist tabloid owned by the ruling Communist Party’s official newspaper the People’s Daily,” therefore reflects the views of top Chinese government officials.

    The Russian,Chinese and American Governments all work together for the same shadows!
    The warships and planes they are showing/talking about are so outdated its unbelievable!
    They have plasma weapons and flying craft that can do 50x the speed of sound!
    This is a game they play to keep you a slave!
    Keep working!
    Keep paying taxes!
    Keep voting!
    Quote: Only a fool would vote knowing his vote, no matter what, will only favor
    that which is opposed to him, that which enslaves him through
    word-magic and contracted dis-ease. Ah, the causality of illusionary
    choice. And every four years the charade is played out again. Billions
    spent. And only the bloodline ever wins. The game is fixed. The con is
    rigged. Suckers.
