China and Russia: Are We Witnessing the Birth of a New World Order?

Historian Al McCoy Predicts Ukraine War to Birth New World Order


President Biden reportedly warned Chinese President Xi Jinping via video call Friday that China would face “consequences” if it provided material support to Russia amid the war in Ukraine.

The call was part of U.S. efforts to minimize an emerging Sino-Russian alliance, which threatens U.S. influence over the Eurasian landmass, says Alfred McCoy, professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. As U.S. global power declines, China and Russia “are going to emerge as the new centers of global power on the planet,” he adds.

  1. Pressuring China to take side in a conflict that is not their doing´?
    The Chinese are smarter than the West and foresees what is coming their way.
    All Chinese are asking themselves this

    ” Asking me to beat your enemy which is my friend for you to beat me later?” Ain’t going to happen!

  2. We are a young experiment. The best thing we can do for long term planning is to focus on our own problems for a while and fine tune what we have. The branches of our corporate oligarchy that are interested in being military power, are frankly no longer welcome. After WW2, we were supposed to stay out Europes constant wars but we keep getting dragged back in. It would be very very refreshing to revert back to paying attention to our experiment and continue improving our own situation which is not as great as many would have us believe. We have potential we are ignoring. War, is not power. Our wealth is drained by it, and our people will suffer for generations even if we stopped it all right now. Reduce our military budget by 80%.

  3. Are We Witnessing the Birth of a New World Order? Of course we are! China, Russia and Iran don’t want to be forced to adapt the Western “values”.
