Default Russian premier gives unprecedented welcome to new Chinese leader

Does this make others as nervous as it makes me?

Putin rolls out the red carpet (and guards on horseback) for visit of President Xi
Russian premier gives unprecedented welcome to new Chinese leader as relations thaw

China’s new leader began his first overseas trip as president with a much anticipated visit to Russia today – a symbolic trip that underlines China’s desire to ensure its energy supply while showing defiance in the face of US influence in Asia.

A grand reception was held to welcome President Xi Jinping upon his arrival in Moscow, with guards riding on horseback brought out to greet a foreign leader for the first time. Kremlin guards snapped to attention as Mr Xi and his long retinue walked into the gilded, chandeliered Grand Kremlin Palace, where they met members of official delegations in the ornate St George Hall before sitting down for talks.

“China and Russia are the main and most important strategic partners,” Mr Xi told Russian media upon his arrival. He said he was eagerly anticipating his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “In many ways we speak a common language,” he said.

The grand welcome was a clear indication of the importance placed on the visit by Moscow. Russia is one of the world’s biggest energy producers, and China is the top energy consumer. These realities tend to outweigh the traditionally tense relations between the two neighbouring giants, who were bitter rivals during the Soviet era despite their ideological links.

We're not the only country that's essentially gotta kiss the banker's ass.

Well it looks as if Russia is going to take their cash the old fashioned capitalist way. They plan on selling them energy. That's an alliance that really makes me uncomfortable. Putin is so much smarter than Obama. It's like a chess match between a grand master and a ten year old.

But Putin has Russia to work with. A place so endemically mired in corruption and lawlessness that it would take pride of place in Africa.

Russia and China have tried to kiss and make up for a long time. There are some fundamental problems with that, the central being the worlds hugest differential in pop density per square kilometer on the Russkie-Chink border. Anything they cobble together now is temporary. What you're seeing now is what I was talking about before the US elections - reelecting Obama, let alone with the margins he got - sent a clear and loud signal to the rest of the world that the former hegemon has lost its power, that it is so far fallen and degenerated it cannot longer defend its own interested. And the most skilled and professional of looters - hello, commie and mafia governments! - are sure to take notice and start to wonder how to best carve up the slice of America's pie between them.
