On May 9th, 2015, in Moscow, Chinese President Xi Jinping sat to the right of Russian President Vladimir Putin, to leisurely watch Russia’s 70th Anniversary Victory Day Parade (over fascism). After giving a short, solemn speech, Putin took a relaxed, friendly approach, chumming it up with Xi, his wife Peng Liyuan, Kazakhstani President Nursultan Nazarbaev and decorated Russian veterans of World War II, while enjoying a beautiful, azure-sky, spring day. There was a subdued, but festive atmosphere of celebration in the air. This is a venerable parade, having been conducted annually since 1945 and it showed. For Russians, it is a part of their collective sociopolitical DNA, and is it celebrated simultaneously in 26 other cities across the country, much like July 4th in America and July 14th in France.
Russia’s military might was in full regalia and China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) marched with the Russian Red Army, along with India’s and eight more visiting countries, mostly from the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organization). The Soviet Union/Russia have a tradition of inviting fraternal armies to march in this parade, but women soldiers marched for the first time ever. It was the largest parade in Russia’s history. The message was clear: we will not stand for another rise of world fascism. If you have any doubts, we are ready to battle for global freedom and peace and we have friends who are ready to help.
Today, on September 3rd, 2015 in Beijing, it was a beautiful, early fall day, with a cloudless azure sky. Xi stood with Putin on the dais of Tiananmen Gate, to watch over China’s 70th Anniversary Victory Day Parade over Japanese Aggression and World Fascism. Unlike Russia’s May 9th parade, Beijing’s was a somber, reflective occasion full of gravitas. It was China’s inaugural parade to fete a brand new national holiday, in recognition of the sacrifices of the Chinese people during World War II, and it was China’s biggest parade ever. The two other world leaders closest to President Xi on the dais were South Korean President Park Geun-hye and Kazakhstani President Nursultan Nazarbaev. Nazarbaev was close by in both parades for a very good reason. He is the founding father of the concept of a unified, pan-Asian economic and security block, from Belarus to China, where the imperial West cannot use its massive naval advantage to control the world’s biggest continent. It was his vision that helped inspire Putin’s Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU or EEU) and Xi’s Silk Roads and Belts initiative.
In Beijing, seventeen visiting countries’ armies marched with the PLA, including Russia’s. The Russian troops were the last foreign detachment to march in the parade. This meant that they were closest to the Chinese troops, who were right behind them, thus, symbolically honoring Russia’s lead and linking the two countries’ histories, sacrifices and militaries together. Like on May 9th in Russia, a massive show of military power was displayed, all built in China and fully operational: from small drones to nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles, from the newest anti-ship technology (read the US’s Sixth Fleet parked off China’s and Russia’s eastern shores) to anti-stealth weaponry (take that American tactical B-2 bombers). Like May 9th, China showed off women soldiers for the first time in a military parade. This is long overdue recognition that neither China nor the Soviet Union/Russia could have defeated fascism, without the Herculean efforts and sacrifices of their female citizens. Numerous Chinese and foreign (including Western) WWII veterans were on hand, being honored and praised. They were all in their 80s and 90s, many in wheel chairs or with canes.

Like in Moscow on May 9th, women marched in a Chinese military parade for the first time. Here are medical corps soldiers proudly joining the celebrations. (Image by 44 Days Radio Sinoland)
Make no mistake about it: this was Xi Jinping’s creation from start to finish. Xi’s spirit, intentions and message to the world were all over today’s parade. He led the entire event from start to finish. President Putin was the only person on the dais who was honored during the parade, by standing next to Xi Jinping, while the Russian troops marched below on Tiananmen Square. Other than when Xi was with Putin, during the rest of the parade, he stood, sat and waved to the troops by himself.
Xi gets credit for creating this new national holiday, for holding a big parade to commemorate the remembrance, thereby adding a powerful sociopolitical meme to the Chinese Dream and the consciousness of his people. Unlike Putin on May 9th, Xi was the face of the event, giving a longish, passionate speech in support of China’s unrecognized contributions to the world’s victory over fascism. http://en.people.cn/n/2015/0903/c90000-8945363.html To underscore this, CCTV (China Central Television) had on as a post-parade guest, British historian Dr. Rana Mitter, who has recently released a book, Forgotten Ally: China’s World War II, 1937-1945. Xi also extolled the critical role of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in rallying and leading the people to triumph, during their 14-year struggle against fascist Japan.

Xi was very much a focus of today’s parade. Here he is standing in a classic Red Flag sedan car, reviewing the troops before they started to march. Behind the Great Western Firewall, the mainstream propaganda machine will be slobbering like rabid dogs to destroy Xi’s reputation, given the national and international success of this parade. https://soundcloud.com/44-days/radio-sinoland-show-by-jeff-1 (Image by 44 Days Radio Sinoland)
Xi skirted around the “bragging rights”, as to who paid the larger price, by saying China suffered 35 million casualties (which includes the wounded), while stating that Russia lost 27 million lives, in the cause against world fascism. Both countries like to claim they had the biggest loss of human life. It is safe to say that between these two fraternal, communist countries, they suffered about half the world’s 100 million World War II casualties and between them, lost close to 40 million citizens. To put this in proper perspective, the United Kingdom and the United States each lost around 400,000, or a total of 800,000 citizens. This is one-fiftieth, or only 2% of Russia’s and China’s combined sacrifices. Thus, tellingly, Russia was the only country named in Xi’s keynote speech, although he did collectively thank all the countries that helped China fight against fascism.

(Image by 44 Days Radio Sinoland)
Xi also wanted his people to remember that it is the CPC that preserved 5,000 years of Chinese civilization and “ended China’s national humiliation of suffering successive defeats at the hands of foreign aggressors”. This of course, means Western empire’s colonialization of China from the 1840s until liberation in 1949, which included addicting 100 million Chinese to 281,250MT of imported opium and bankrupting the country, by stealing 40,625MT of silver, during that time frame. So, this parade was also a critical expression of Xi Jinping’s Chinese Dream, to move the people beyond this terrible history of colonial exploitation and to look to the future.
Xi also pointed out to his people and the world that it is the CPC that will continue to lead China to socialist prosperity, stability and collective security, under the banner of Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought https://soundcloud.com/44-days/radio-sinoland-show-by-jeff-3 , Deng Xiaoping Theory, the Three Represents and the Scientific Outlook on Development. http://www.greanvillepost.com/2015/08/20/the-myth-of-chinese-capitalism-2/ The latter two platforms were developed by former presidents Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, respectively, who were also in attendance.
Jiang and Hu were sitting next to UN General Secretary, Ban Ki-moon, a fellow Korean with President Park Geun-hye. Secretary Ban was dressed down by the Japanese (who don’t pass gas without consulting Washington first) for attending today’s parade. http://borneobulletin.com.bn/japan-complains-to-un-over-bans-china-military-parade-visit/ Who do these colonial fools think they are? Thus, Xi was also sure to remind the world that China will never seek hegemony and expansion (meaning, like the West continues to do so) and everybody’s international affairs should be conducted through the United Nations charter, meaning not extra-judicially, like NATO does relentlessly across the planet. http://www.greanvillepost.com/2015/09/02/the-us-carried-out-674-military-operations-in-africa-last-year-did-you-hear-about-any-of-them/
Surprisingly, Xi used this speech to announce that the PLA will reduce its numbers by 300,000 soldiers, in the name of world peace. While lofty sounding, in truth, there has been a lot of talk recently that Xi, who is a PLA soldier himself and as head of the Central Military Commission, is the army’s supreme commander, intends to radically redesign China’s military, to make it more mobile, responsive and rapid. This is China’s adaptation to the United States’ pivot to the Pacific. The pivot is to intensify America’s encirclement of the People’s Republic and its relentless efforts to overthrow the CPC – all grand plans that Uncle Sam has spent untold billions trying to do, since 1949.
China, having the world’s largest standing army (2.2 million soldiers), has quite a task to restructure its military, but it would appear this parade will be used as a launching pad to do just that. http://www.scmp.com/news/china/diplomacy-defence/article/1854607/china-aims-modern-fighting-force-overhaul-peoples
How did Western Empire respond to all this? The day before the parade, the United States announced a whole rash of sanctions (what else is new?) against Russia, China, Iran, Syria, Sudan and Turkey, for helping Iran to exist. The timing was an obvious riposte to the next day’s events. https://www.rt.com/news/314085-us-hits-russia-sanctions/ Russia’s foreign ministry immediately released a statement that Russia will retaliate, but maybe not in the same fashion. Like, during Putin’s Beijing visit, sitting down with President Xi and signing 30 bilateral agreements, with Putin saying China is a “key partner for Russia”, and Russian-Chinese relations are at an “historic peak”, despite “illegitimate Western restrictions”. http://www.rt.com/news/313998-putin-china-visit-xinhua/
And it wasn’t only Putin. Fellow socialist President Nicolas Maduro found the time to meet with Xi and sign a new $5 billion loan, to help Venezuela expand its oil production. In return, Venezuela will increase its sale of black crude to China, from 700,000 barrels per day to one million. http://www.telesurtv.net/english/news/Venezuela-to-Increase-Oil-Production-with-Loan-from-China-20150902-0001.html Xi and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, who acted as the parade’s master of ceremonies, met with the visiting world leaders, signing bilateral agreements left and right.
Xi met with Korea’s President Park for private talks. This after Uncle Sam had brow beaten and threatened her like a loan shark client, not to come and participate in the parade. http://thediplomat.com/2015/08/will-south-koreas-president-attend-chinas-ww2-anniversary-parade/ Mrs. Park speaks quite good Chinese and the Korean press was calling this visit her “sixth summit” with Xi, both of whom were elected as presidents in the spring of 2013. Like Putin, Park is known to have a very good working relationship with Xi and they like and respect each other. The Korean media supported her visit. It was announced that Park and Xi discussed de-nuclearizing the Korean peninsula and restarting the 6+1 talks, which are always constituent pleasers back home. I wonder if that includes any US atom bombs on Korean soil or in Korean waters, along with North Korea’s? Given that South Korea is an occupied country, with almost 30,000 US soldiers squatting in nine military bases, and whose American commander even has authority over South Korea’s military, we will never know. But the fact that President Park stood up to America’s mafia diplomacy, surely warms the hearts of both Xi and Putin, whose two countries border North Korea and its keep-you-guessing diplomacy.
Chinese speaking, South Korean President Park Geun-hye thumbed her nose at intense intimidation from Washington to not attend China’s V-Day parade, which means a lot to both China and Russia, given North Korea’s keep-you-guessing diplomacy. Her she is on the left, being welcomed by President Xi and his wife, Peng Liyuan. (Image by 44 Days Radio Sinoland)
Japan and the Philippines were not so courageous. Like good puppets, they did as Washington directed, by boycotting the parade. China invited 51 countries and almost all of them sent their leaders or high level state dignitaries. Besides the “no thank you” from Japan and the Philippines, only three countries insulted the Chinese, by sending their obligatory in-country ambassadors: the United States, Canada and Germany. Interestingly, former Japanese Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama came, as well as British war criminal Tony Blair and Germany’s plain-speaking, former Chancellor, Gerhard Schroeder. http://thediplomat.com/2015/08/30-heads-of-state-will-watch-chinas-military-parade-next-week/
Like on May 9th in Moscow, America failed miserably to isolate China, trying to spoil its celebration of one of modern history’s most important milestones. Instead of winning the hearts and admiration of 1.3 billion Chinese and countless peoples around the globe, by sending Allied troops to march in today’s parade, the West has come across looking exactly like what it is: an insecure, scared and spiteful bully.
Like the May 9th parade in Moscow, America has royally failed to isolate China to celebrate an important milestone in modern world history. Forty nine of the 51 countries invited were represented at the parade. (Image by diplomat.com)
CCTV reported that the parade was getting heavy coverage across Russia, in the state owned media and will be broadcast in its entirety, for the whole country to watch. It was also reported that Russia “sent a huge delegation of officials”. Just think of all those bridge building meetings between corresponding Chinese and Russian ministries. And the West? Not so much, if not at all. Like the Chinese beaming with pride when the PLA marched against fascism on May 9th (the Moscow parade got massive coverage here), Russians will surely feel just as satisfied seeing their Red Army marching with the Chinese today.
So the die is cast. From May 9th in Moscow to September 3rd in Beijing, these two, towering leaders of the Anti-West Order have come full circle. China and Russia are sending an explicit message to the United States and its boot licking, groveling European allies: we are 21st century brothers and sisters in arms and our Red Armies and our peoples oppose your fascism and your imperialism.

I was hoping you’d send Saker this report. Marvelously constructed with acerbic comments and links, et al.
Very accurate and comprehensive article describing the history we have witnessed in Moscow and Beijing this year so far.
The globe is being changed by these two nations and two great leaders, along with the participation, as in the parades, of the other large, developing and emerging nations.
This report is a rich educational resource marking the events in a manner that invites study by the readers.
Thank you, and enjoy the blue skies of Beijing, temporary as they may be. It is exquisite when it occurs.
Future world peace depends on russia n china. god bless
appreciate your efforts,
there is still something to correct – female soldiers already marched on Chinese military parade
and a few other details.
Thanks, Master. I was going off what what was said during the parade. There was probably some nuance that made what I heard, correct. Great to hear that women were in earlier Chinese military parades. Jeff in Beijing
As the Chairman said, ‘Women hold up half of Heaven’. The emancipation of women for the first time in Chinese history was one of Mao’s many tremendous achievements. His mistakes pale into insignificance in comparison.
@ Jeff J. Brown
Sir, if you are so smart, maybe you could tell us why The Jewish Star of David is on the Chinese yuan?
I note that you never use the “J” word but instead call them “fascists” or “imperialists” or “colonialists” which is very dissembling if not disingenuous.
In short, are you a JEW GATEKEEPER?
Justice For Chinese
Stars — 5, 6, 7, or more points — are ancient symbols, and that not every star with 6 points is a Star of David? Similarly every 5 pointed star is not a pentagram. Swastikas were ancient symbols long before Nazis, and triangles have been used in all times and places, and pyramids and eyes existed long before dollar bills. Context…..
Unfortunately, the “Context” (my site) has been sabotaged by you know who… as of this afternoon. Check it out in a few days… God willing.
@ Mr. Brown,
BTW, the Opium Trade that destroyed China and made 100 million Chinese addicts was strictly a Jewish Monopoly and this is admitted in their own Jewish Encyclopedias (1905 edition). Again, I cannot offer the “Context” for my claim that Imperialism is Jewish because my site has been sabotaged.
I saw your site a while back the first time you posted on the yuan. It strikes me as anti-semitic and reaching for finding Jews in everything. The zionist reality is bad enough without going overboard on it — which actually obscures and exacerbates the problem.
BTW, It’s important to understand that zionism is not Judaism, and vice versa.
Zionism is one the most anti-Jewish forces that exists (similar to how Wahabism, etc. is anti-Islam, and the Dominion is anti-Christian — two other examples of extremism and perversion of religions and spirituality, incorporating very secular, financial, and political purposes.
I’m not at all ‘religious’ myself, and hardly a fan of the Biblical religions, but I can see the difference between actual religion and how it’s exploited for evil purposes (and has been all through the ages) — or just badly understood from ignorance.
“You must understand. The leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. The October Revolution was not what you call in America the “Russian Revolution.” It was an invasion and conquest over the Russian people. More of my countrymen suffered horrific crimes at their bloodstained hands than any people or nation ever suffered in the entirety of human history. It cannot be understated. Bolshevism was the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant of this reality is proof that the global media itself is in the hands of the perpetrators.”
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008), Nobel-Prize-winning Russian novelist, historian and critic of Communist totalitarianism.
So even the obvious English evil iosed on China through war -called opim war -is being attributed not to the parasite English nation but to the Jews!! Thsi shows how much Jews are made scapegoat for the heineios crime being perpetrated by the. English nation and its 5evil eyes.
Both warold wars were plotted by England and people still blame Jews!!
blue, I brushed my teeth with Swastik tooth-paste and stayed at the Swastika Hotel in India. I doubt that the so-called Star of David, which has been used by numerous groups, but most notably by the Jews, signals their control over China. The Jewish control of the West is amazing enough, and its unmentionability in polite discourse even more so, but I really doubt that they’ll ever weave their magic over the Chinese. The Indians seem in rather more trouble, unfortunately.
There’s an old joke about a Jew who was visiting Beijing and went to find a synagogue for the sabbith. After a couple of hours he finally came upon a rather small, plain, building on a side street with a sign on the front identifying the building as a synagogue. He knocked on the door and two Chinese guys wearing yarmulkes and vestments, answered it.
“Is this really a Jewish Synagogue? Are you Jews?” he asked.
“Yes”, came the reply from the the older gentleman. “I am the rabbi”.
“Funny”, said the traveler, “You don’t look Jewish.”
Thanks again, Master. I can’t make the change here, but did correct this article on 44 Days:
Hi Larchmonter445. We actually have many more good days than bad air days, compared to the 90s. Always great to hear from you. Hope you can share this article and all the best from Big B-Town, Jeff
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCfdGzXPN_w is parade in English on Youtube, where it can be downloaded.
Thanks, Blue. I’m downloading it now. Jeff in Beijing.
I saw the first 45 minutes or so of the telecast.
It was amusing to observe how all the other invited dignitaries were tripping over themselves to not step in a plane in front of VVP as he and Xi were walking toward the podiums.
Thanks, Anonymous. I didn’t see that first time arouund. Jeff in Beijing.
@ Jeff J. Brown,
Q; This is long overdue recognition that neither China nor the Soviet Union/Russia could have defeated fascism, without the Herculean efforts and sacrifices of their female citizens.
R; You’re absolutely right and thanks for pointing that out.
Also, again, a big thank you for your refreshing take on world events. Like Andrew Kroybko and Rostislav Ishchenko’s articles, your contributions too do result in a mind set to wonder and wander again, armed with a fistful of facts, under a clear blue sky that’s loaded with fresh oxygen and enough room to march onward to the breech once more.
Hat in hand.
Thanks Daniel. I hope you can share this article with as many people as you know. Best, Jeff in Beijing
I really can’t figure the logic in the West.Are those leaders so forgetful of history.Does coming from countries that had minimum suffering from WW2 (minus Germany) that they don’t realize how important in national memory the losses of that war are to the Russian and Chinese people.Not just the Russian and Chinese leaders,but the “people”.Don’t the Westerners realize how the average person in Russia and China will see this insult.The entire West is “slitting their own throats” and there is no one smart enough in the West to shout out “stop,before you kill yourself”.
Bob, the rulers of the West are universally psychopaths so the deaths of forty million ‘Asiatics’ or to be blunt, other people, leave them utterly unmoved. Plus the fascists defeated were Western proxies, and once defeated, their mission was taken over by the West, led by the USA, and Germany and Japan became puppets of the West, their fascist hierarchies to all intents and purposes, left fully intact. In fact, their presence would have desecrated the occasion.
Your are right on the money, Mulga! Jeff in Beijing
In the first gulf war on 1991 when the amerjca s journalists were saying that usa would not like so many casualtues tben the british journakists were encouraging and inciting amerucans tk go ahead with war because americans and britisgh would not mind other peoes caususlty.such was rhe master lesson to amerixans from the british about lack of etics.
British stull control all agenda of the amerucabs agaibst other nations
In the 1991 bloodbath, the cowardly mass slaughter of fleeing humanity on the Kuwait-Basra Highway, the infamous ‘turkey-shoot’, tells you all you really need to know of Yankee blood-lust. And the burying alive of Iraqi conscripts in their trenches by giant bulldozers, like those used by the Israelis to pulverise Jenin and other places, the al-Amariya massacre etc all attest to a psychopathic delight in murder, particularly of the defenceless. Like Korea, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Indochina etc.
It couldn’t be the ionistsz could it?
The Americans in particular live in their delusional Hollywood unreality that they largely defeated facism on their own in World War 2–never mind that the USA (and UK) aided and supported the rise of the Nazi Third Reich to begin with.
Conjuring Hitler: How Britain and America Made the Third Reich
This is the same type of pathological delusion that Americans possess today with the fanatical belief that they are waging a righteous War on Terrorism (even as Americans covertly support jihadist terrorism in Libya, Syria, and Southwest Asia).
Needless to say, reality will hit Americans like a ton of bricks when their Ponzi scheme economy implodes and they pathetically look for scapegoats to blame for their failed brand of casino capitalism.
America is like an Orwellian version of Disneyland meets Madison Avenue.
But once this corporate media image of America starts to crack, the crash will be hellacious to witness.
Yes,I’m aware of that.My comment was just rhetorical.I know they are that stupid.It is just amazing that they don’t see it themselves.They never think long term.How much better,in the end even for them, if they changed their thinking before its too late for them to change.
Very true. I recall what I felt when the Western offal belittled the May 9th parade in Moscow, and it rings truer than ever before with Tony Blair attending the parade in Beijing:
“They have no bloody business being there in the first place. Western filth should be celebrating with their fellow Nazi monkeys in Banderastan instead. On Victory Day in Moscow, Western CHG (Certified Human Garbage) should be paraded and then led right up to the gallows.”
Last but not least: Thanks a lot to the PLA and the Chinese leadership for their bold resolve in defeating Western fascism right in that very same square 44 years later. Had this not been done swiftly, then God have the mercy.
I can’t help wondering if Blair was invited to rub it in.
Actually Nussiminen, the prototype Colour Revolution was defeated around Tian An Men, as the Taiwanese intelligence, Hong Kong gangsters and other murderers were dealt with as the violent stage of the attempted putsch was defeated. In Tian An Men the remaining dupes were quietly ushered out with no casualties, as numerous eye-witnesses, including Westerners, long ago noted. There were hundreds of casualties, but, really, the Evil Empire turned a defeat into a propaganda victory thanks to the power of lying, the Western MSM’s chief product these days.
I’ll tell you about “Western logic” in no uncertain terms, Uncle Bob 1. It’s the logic of an all-out, self-obsessed parasite. More specifically, one gets a very good grasp of this as soon as one delves into the origins of the West’s nonsensical invention and subsequent use of “Left” and “Right” as political concepts. Ergo: As Legend has it, aforesaid terminology was coined at Versailles during the French revolution. There was a dispute on a specific matter where the two quarelling factions were physically seated to the left and to the right, respectively, in the room where that dispute was to be settled.
OK, fine. But the blunt question then becomes: What were they (not) fuzzing about? Keep in mind here that the last years of the 18th century was a time of mammoth slave uprisings in the Carribean, targeting French colonial rule there outright. Did that cause any strife in ‘revolutionary’ France? Nope. And that indeed sets the template for “Left politics” ever since. The West’s bloody Left has never challenged Imperial privilege, just the opposite. Whenever the imperialists beat the war drums — especially against subjugated, colonial peoples — the Left turns out to be just as totally reactionary, deluded, degenerate, and arrogant as the powers that be.
To get back on topic, the significance of stiffening social cohesion and national pride in China and Russia alongside the ever worsening neoliberal rot besetting the parasitic, fascist West hasn’t been lost on anybody; least of all the West’s ruling circles.
There were times between the first and second war the so called Red Scare when socialism in America was a much more vibrant movement and even today dock workers in San Francisco have refused to ship war cargo. Fascism that is the destruction of organized labour and the atomization of the working class is and has been ongoing for a long time. In the past, industrialists had to hire their own strike breakers and Pinkerton’s to snuff out labour-today that capitalist state has taken that overhead cost on for them. It will get worse in the West I believe, nothing short of “social transformation” will cure what ails the West. I think it is time to re-forge the Fourth International.
Nussiminem, I think it absolutely essential that Russia and China build societies opposite in nature to the evil bedlams of the neo-liberal capitalist West and its neo-colonial appendages. If they create societies marked by social solidarity, as little inequality as possible, universal education and health-care and high culture available to all, the contrast with the sewers of grotesque inequality, crude ‘tittietainment’ mass culture based on violence, barbarity and envy of the rich and increasing poverty and humiliation for an ever-increasing proportion of the populace, that is the glorious West, will be telling. Of course the Western MSM sewer would lie about the situation, but the truth will trickle out.
Yes Mulga, that would be the most desirable way ahead. The funny thing to keep in mind here is that to Western loyalists in general and Western supremacists in particular, any setbacks and loss of prestige for Western imperialism are morally illegal, hence utterly intolerable. Small wonder that the newest pejorative in the language of Westish reads “Putin-bot”. Indeed, the MSM will see to it that Westerners eventually become too retarded to even participate in the global labour market; where they will be rightfullly dismissed as unskilled, grossly overrated dregs by any sensible employer. As the West’s imperialist superprofits dry up and its ruling circles accordingly resort to open violence against the zombified, delusional Western masses themselves, we’ll have a most exciting case study in the form of a stress test being applied to imperialist social cohesion.
The West’s bloody Left has never challenged Imperial privilege, just the opposite. Whenever the imperialists beat the war drums — especially against subjugated, colonial peoples — the Left turns out to be just as totally reactionary, deluded, degenerate, and arrogant as the powers that be.
This is especially true for the American Left, which dominates and controls the so-called antiwar movement; anti-globalization/Wall Street “activism”; phony alternative media; and other controlled opposition politics.
The political agenda for imperial American progressives is at base this: To whine for a greater cut of the economic spoils of the American Empire.
They wish to reform the American Empire in order to save it and their own socio-economic privilege.
In terms of “antiwar” politics, Americans don’t oppose America’s serial wars of aggression or crimes against humanity on a principled basis but out of *imperial self-interest* like their argument that these wars are too costly for the USA or that it generates too much “anti-Americanism” (i.e. resistance to imperial American tyranny).
In terms of economics, these Americans are US supremacists to the core and will embrace the United States’ pathetic scapegoating of other nations for their own country’s decrepit Capitalist system.
Worse still, the Americans possess an inbred sense of economic entitlement and will throw petulant hissy fits when their imperial way of life and ill-gotten wealth are threatened–like spoiled brats throwing a tantrum when their toys are taken away.
When push comes to shove, American progressives are merely the “left wing” of the American Evil Empire.
The United Snakes is morally bankrupt from top to bottom, from Wall Street to Main Street, USA.
The “left” in the US was crushed right before and after, WWI.From then on the “left” has been “tarred” with the accusation of treason.They are always accused of being “Socialists and Communists” (two words that are death sentences in US politics).From that time on the so-called left in the US has had no influence.And in reality are no more than “centrists” at best. I’ve had Russian friends ask me about the Communist Party in the US,why don’t they speak out.When that happens I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.They are under the impression that there is a real Communist Party,with any real influence in the US.I’d say the Socialist groups,and Communist groups combined in the US, “might” get somewhat less than 1% of any votes in a US election (I’m being generous).The easiest way to destroy any candidate in a US election is to convince voters that they are “Communist”. Even the “rebellious 60’s” couldn’t inspire a real long lasting left in the US.Some have mentioned the anti-war movement of that time.While its true there was one.And a few people were very sincere in opposing the Vietnam War on moral grounds.The anti-war movement only became popular with mass numbers of people when it became costly,and wasn’t being won.With the biggest support for the movement coming only after the government stopped deferments for kids in college.Once that happened the college students became the biggest group of “anti-war” protesters (“hell no,we won’t go”).Along with the families of college students (“you ain’t sending my son to Vietnam”).Once the war ended,the left collapsed again.And the government ended the draft,and started the mercenary….er…I mean “volunteer” military.With the draft,the “people” had an attachment to the military.And where they,their children,their relatives,their friends, and the children of those, had to go.But now,unless you or your family are “personally” connected to the military,most people couldn’t care less.Regretfully,if anyone is hoping for a miracle and the US,just all of a sudden,reforming.They are going to be disappointed badly.
Thanks one and all for reading. I put a lot of time and research into writing it, so I’m glad it was worth the effort. Please share with friends, family and colleagues. Best from Beijing, Jeff

Dear Jeff, thanks a lot for the article.
One small fly in the ointment:
Readers of a Russian site, where I had loaded my very brief translation of your text with some pictures (http://cont.ws/post/117936), pointed out this “fly” to me on the map you provided (which, – the “fly” – I missed). Some areas of the Russian territories there (Sakhalin, Kaliningrad…) are not painted red.
It is not important to me, but the “fly” led the discussion at the site somewhat astray, with trolls jumping at the chance happily.
Thanks, Shed. The map came from The Diplomat website, a very status quo, mainstream source. So, any geographical revisionism on their part, I have no control over. It was though, the best map I could find for the occasion.
Jeff, what a fabulous article, thank you so much. So interesting to know which countries are really ‘on board’ with the new eastern world
I wish I lived in one of the countries that are coloured red on the map. How did it happen that I was born in the wrong half of the world ?
Ann, you can get some great deals on plane tickets!
Hi Jeff, thanks for suggestion !~ I’m a real coward, so I’ll tell you why I can’t come…its my excuse I guess…
I have 5 horses, 3 of them are seniors. And I have 2 dogs, that weigh in over 100 lbs, (give or take a few lbs)
So I can’t go to Russia and I can’t go to Argentina, and I can’t go to China. Its quite impossible I’m afraid. I’ve actually looked into it. Shipping for 5 horses is pretty steep. Plus, gosh, landing there..hmm where would I go ? I’d have to be a millionaire.
But I have a few friends that have been to China multiple times, with the Waldorf School initiative, in that city near Bejjing….so I do feel a connection with China through that, somehow, as I’m a keen Rudolf Steiner pupil…although I never went to a Waldorf School.
I remember a few months ago you said you’d checked out the Waldorf School, I think it was the same one, for your kids, but opted for a local school.
Anyway, its a bit restrictive of my traveling, to have such large pets, so I only dream and visit Saker’s every day. Its very rewarding. And I have really learned an amazing amount about the world, and the ‘real deal’.
Take care and say hi to China skies, for me.
Well, Ann, I can see your situation is special.
Yes, the Waldorf School is due north of Beijing in a suburb called Changping.
So we can dis-abuse our neighbors of their illusions.
Dear Saker ,
Great post as usual .Just one thing , I’m afraid it is not the first time ladies are marching .
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVhzu7iIgtY jump to 31′ . Impressive and not nurses .
Best regards .
Thanks Mikel. I was basing that information off what I heard on Chinese TV. I guess they had bad info too! Jeff in Beijing.
Thank you very much Jeff for this wonderful article.
It is always a pleasure to read your writings and this one is extremely important to me as it offers a dialog about a critical stage in the world events.
Unfortunately I live in to a country that has been at the forefront of stupidity and cowardice with the worst leader ever seen in my life. As expected, Canada is one of the three stooges that attempted to spoil the event. Like the USA, Canada is a poor player and a lousy loser.
I am happy about what is happening in the world. The western financial system is falling apart, the western world is losing momentum, and a new order is rising while the most destructive civilization that the world has witnessed is being destroyed.
Yes, SunLion, Canada’s slide into neo-fascism is real disappointment. I understand the “first around the pole” voting system makes it very easy for one party to dominate in the elections. Harper is a W Bush cliché. Thanks for reading and please share. Jeff in Beijing
Sun Lion, as you live in Canada too, you might be interested in the article in the latest “Island TIdes” newspaper, from Vancouver Island. You can look it up online for free I think.
Elizabeth May has her usual column in it (she is the rep for the south Vancouver Island)…
Its on Canada’s terrible foreign policy since Harper (and Chretien).
Its super good….Elizabeth May is supported by many activists here and I truly believe she is ‘the real thing’….and she wants to be Prime Minister.
Thank you for posting your article – I was waiting eagerly for your views of the 70th Anniversary Victory Parade. We must never forget.
To be honest, I was glad the fascist countries and their proxies didn’t taint this important rememberance (though Tony Blair was one such taint/opportunist) with their presence. They can wallow in their insults as the world moves on and away from them. I was glad a few EU countries made the effort.
I watched the parade – which only RT was showing in the “West” with any degree of depth – with sadness for the past and hope for a future driven by China and Russia for a multi-polar world and an end to the current fascim we live in.
Great to hear from you Veritas. It is exciting times, but it takes empire many decades to implode. I’m 61, so I hope to see the fall of the West before I die, but chances are I won’t. Jeff in Beijing
If they judged the WEST the way they judged the USSR Capitalism would have disappeared before it even got off the ground and Presidents were assassinated trying to Nationalize the Fed. Bankers play really dirty, all the more reason to arrest them and confiscate their ill gotten gains. I cant’ wait for that hip lawyer representing comers to get the Federal Government of Canada in Supreme Court to force them into borrowing interest free loans for develop of the country the way we did until TRUDEAU of all people stopped the practice about the time America went off the gold standard and we started borrowing from the Private Sector. It has been downhill ever since.
Great piece Jeff and very uplifting.
Some Western powers not coming should not be surprising. Japan and Germany were proxies for Western bankster interests.
Yes, Michel, there is a lot of history to suggest the colonial powers and banks encouraged Hitler, in order to get access to Russia’s resources. Western empire is truly the evil of humanity. Jeff in Beijing
bric member [sic] india send a note to xi,
*sorry we cant send any troops to the parade, this would hurt the oh so defenceless jp’s feeling [sic],
besides…..our boys are busy prepping for another round of quad war game with the jp,
hey rest assured its not directed at china my friend, dont worry*
i can almost hear the snickering hehehe.
yes, it’s sad. India has never been able to get rid of their subscription to the “yellow peril” syndrome since the Sino-Indian war in the 60s. Fact is the British lord over them for many years, and they did not seem to mind, but hey, have a war that just last a few weeks, nope, must remember it forever…
from the original cast of the eight nations alliance in beijing, 1900
russia has long outgrown past imperialism.
the five eyes dont seem to have evolved one bit over more than an entire century, still the same rapacious predators of yore !
bharat/jp looks destined to be the west’s perenial local compradors !
Pardon my ignorance, but what is “jp”? Thanks, Jeff in Beijing
jp = japan/japanese.
Thanks to the heroic efforts of the people of USSR, Nazi Germany was defeated. USA and UK efforts and casualties were minimal, and in the aftermath of the war they had plans to destroy USSR with nuclear bombing (Operation Unthinkable)
But the Western elites have systematically distorted historic reality and now present WW2 victory as their own. As the generation of people that experienced WW2 starts to pass away, modern generations are brainwashed to “believe” that Nazis were destroyed by USA/UK and only Jews suffered. Almost all hollywood movies depict American soldiers as the “liberators”, and Jews as the only victims.
The sacrifices of the people of USSR and of other nations such as Serbia, Greece have been utterly forgotten.USSR was depicted as the “evil empire”, not the country that defeated Germany.
During Serbia’s Nazi occupation, more than 1 million Serbian people died as they were systematically exterminated and persecuted by Nazi occupation forces. How many hollywood films have you seen about this ? None !
In the 1990s, the Serbian people were demonised by Western corporate Media as “aggressive nationalists” that committed genocide against Bosnian muslims. USA-NATO achieved their goal of dismembering once-mighty Yugoslavia. They created several unstable protectorates that one by one are forced to join EU and NATO. All this culminated with the barbaric bombing of Serbia in 1999 by NATO and with the creation of NATO’s failed narcostate, Kosovo.
In Greece, the German Nazis burned to the ground hundreds of villages, executed thousands of people in cities and the countryside (mass executions of Kaisariani and Nikaia, execution of people of Distomo etc). Hundred of thousands died in cities of starvation and of the food shortages because of the hyperinflation and the black market as the German occupational forces destroyed economic mechanisms and pillaged agricultural production. Furthermore, the puppet government of occupied Greece was forced to pay billions for the upkeep of the German military. As the Germans started to evacuate, they destroyed infrastructure. Almost 1 million people (out of about 6 million people) died because of the occupation, one of the highest figures of all nations.
Then came the Brits, and started a pogrom against all those greek patriots who fought against Germany. All these lead to the greek civil war and the victory of the western-allied elites against communist guerrillas (with the helping hand of USA and the widespread use of Napalm bombs).
Western intervention caused immense destruction, thousands of greek refugees into USSR and Yugoslavia. The pro-west winners executed many Greek patriots (such as Nikos Beloyiannis) and send to internment camps countless of greek communists and patriots who were treated as second class citizens and traitors up until the 1980s. The collaborators of Nazi’s remained in power together with the pro-UK oligarchic elites, ruling Greece as a NATO puppet state…..
Germany never payed any compensation for the destruction that they caused to Greek people and Greece’s infrastructure. On the other hand, Greek puppet government’s of the 1960’s sent 200,000 greek youth as cheap labour to Germany, in order to work as guest workers (“gastarbeiter”) for the German economic “miracle” (which was wholly funded and planned by Americans)
Now Greece is again under Occupation with “greek” governments serving as the puppets of the West. EU (controlled by various transnational American and German elites) has transformed Greece into a debt colony and has caused immense poverty into the Greek population. Economic destruction has caused declining birth rates and mass emigration, whereas mass illegal immigration from destabilised Muslim countries into Greece is being promoted by EU policies (Dublin Treaty) and is certain to cause the extinction and genocide of greek people in the foreseeable future .Valuable Greek public assets worth $50 billion are going to be pillaged by “investors” (western bankers). Living standards have deteriorated rapidly because the elites want to bring to its knees the once proud greek nation. Humiliation of the Greek people is promoted by the mass media, depicting greek people as “lazy”, “inefficient” and “irresponsible” that have “cheated” German’s people money and betrayed their good intentions.
And every day all corporate media remind people that they supposedly belong to “Europe” and the EU and USA are “friends” of greek people. And one of those traitors who are adamantly pro EU, are the pseudo-“leftists” of the SYRIZA party and Prime minister Tsipras. These scumbags betrayed greek people’s NO vote in the referendum and approved a new colonial agreement transferring all public assets to EU.
Great historical review of Greece, Vasilis. Thanks for sharing, I learned a lot of new information. Jeff in Beijing
“Red Army” ??? Since when has there been a “Red” Army in the Russian Federation?!!! I beg your pardon, but if we’re serious about fighting dangerous stereotypes in the world today, we need to be careful about inadvertently using canned word combinations like this in journalism. The implications are not trivial against the backdrop of constant ignorant and irresponsible comparisons being made between the Soviet period and the present Russian Federation and its leadership.
For the record, the Red Army (full name – the Workers’- Peasants’ Red Army) was established right after the Russian Revolution in February 1918 and operated under that name until right after WWII — February 1946, when it was renamed to Soviet Army (or Army of the Soviet Union). When the Soviet Union ceased to exist and the Russian Federation was born, the name became Russian Army (or Army of the Russian Federation).
Looks like were all peasants and workers now-maybe we should form new RED ARMIES!
That is “not” a derogatory term in Russia.I’ve heard it used many times as a “slang” term.Most people are rightfully quite proud of the Red Army’s heroism and the victory of the Great Patriotic War (minus the few fascists and pro-Western liberals of course).So while some in the West might “freakout” over that term,its not so in Russia.
A really well-written and informative piece – thanks so much Jeff.
Thanks, Eimar. Please share the link. Jeff in Beijing.
Thanks, Saker, for publishing this excellent article by Jeff J. Brown.
Although China, Russia and some other countries celebrate VICTORY over fascism, we must not forget that, since the end of WWII, over 50 million people have been killed in imperial wars, coups and other endless interferences around the world, largely in the so-called Third World. There, no VICTORY can yet be celebrated. No matter how many of us are killed; by supporting the corrupt local elites, who are intermediaries to their exploitation, the fascist imperialists stop us from resolving our specific internal contradictions, condemning us to a life in poverty and desolation. This is why we look to Russia and China with hope, today: in due time, together, we may be able to build a better future for humanity.
Yes, Rita, Western empire and colonialism are the cause of 99% of the world’s problems. Too bad they just won’t go away. Jeff in Beijing
stealing 40,625MT of silver…
40 624 000 000 tons of silver
40 624 000 000 000 kilograms of silver
Are you sure about those figures? Thats 3.8 cubic kilometres of silver.
MT is metric tons. I thought
MT is metric tons. I confirmed this by doing a lot of research and visiting several Chinese museums.
Yes so @silver is off by order of 1000000 times (exaggerated)
Amazing propaganda video for Chinese Navy recruiting:
The commentary of ” El territorio del Lince” blog about it:
(…)” Posting a propagandistic video here, yes, propagandistic, from People’s Liberation Army. This video is bringing of their nervous Western militarists, who see it as a threat especially in one aspect: the maritime. This was the remaining Chinese Achilles heel, the sea. But, as one can see, a large part of the rearm efforts are being dedicated to this brand, the Navy”.
Link to the full article where the video was included, also commenting about the embarrassing incident between an Israeli soldier and an eleven year old boy with arm in plaster:
“The democratic lesson and the Yellow Peril”:
These guys keep hitting home runs every time they are at bat. Wow-Re-unification of a sympathetic to China and Russia Korea=BAM! Let’s hope so, the Eurasian Plan is so obviously sane that no ideology or propaganda seems to be able to compete with it, unless you have been “bought” of course.
What about Dr. Laubach and all those Methodist and other Christians who taught the Chinese people to read? By “west” you are beating a drum that leaves out a lot of people, including my own dad who was in Shanghai in 1945 as a Naval officer, who loved and love the Chinese people.
What is the purpose of this divisive article? Many in the west wish only good for the Chinese people, and Russia as well…and I hope it’s true for many there.
Deanna, the problem with all those missionaries is many of them were anti-communist and were working against Mao. Also, Western militaries were there to for the same reasons, supporting the KMT, to crush the Red Army. They were on the wrong side of history. Thanks to the communists, the Chinese people are one of the few in the world that is free from Wall Street, Western Bankers and the CIA, and who control their own resources and destiny.
Er, u mean before westerners came to china they cannot read? Nvm i’ll take that as a no. Fact is throughout the world everyone loved usa, like how every man loves a beautiful princess. But usa has turned into a bossing micromanaging psychopath tyrant on behalf of big banks, mega pharma and multinationals tirelessly make debt serfs out of everyone or be bombed! It is still not over however, provided china n russia can make a stand against this psychopathic princess!
Thank you so much for the English link have been looking around for more of this and the Eastern Economic Forum if anyone has some good translated links to that I would appreciate it. Thank you again.
sk like ph, jp is under the thumb of the unitedsnake,
lady park’s father, strongman park chung hee was bumped off by cia when he stepped out of line. that lady park is attending this parade defying strong armtwisting from washington speaks volums about her courage.
this lady has more cojuns than modi. !
bharat shy away from a peacful parade in beijing in order not to piss off the zwo, yet it has no qualms partaking in every provocative war game directed at china , led by the unitedsnake and its catpaws !
isnt the elephant supposed to be one of the pivot of brics ?
with three legs planted in the zwo camp it looks more like a pivot of the de facto asia nato, the socalled naato !
“Like May 9th, China showed off women soldiers for the first time in a military parade. This is long overdue recognition that neither China nor the Soviet Union/Russia could have defeated fascism, without the Herculean efforts and sacrifices of their female citizens.”
I do not believe that is accurate. For the record, videos are readily available on youtube, showing Chinese women soldiers marching in past national day parades. It is worth mentionning, in addition, that in Chinese guards of honour appear both contingents of Chinese men and contingents of Chinese women.
On the other hand, the contribution of Soviet (Russian) women to the war effort, both as civilians (e.g. producing armament in factories) and in the military (e.g serving as Soviet women pilots) has long been not only recognized but widely celebrated in history books, in songs, in films, in tv documentaries, etc. Supporting audio-visual material to that effect can easily be found on the Web.
unitedsnake’s malaysia destabilisation campaign is in full swing.
a spate of attacks on ethnic chinese occured last month,
now isis style posters are circulating, depicting kneeling chinese beheaded by malay jihadists.
the zwo is desperate,
mh370, mh17 etc etc failed to bring down the malaysian govn and
set china/malaysia at each other’s throat, despite a setback in their relation.
is the snake playing its trump card now, an encore of the 1965 indonesia genocide on ethnic chinese. ?
a bloodbath of such magnitude would surely topple the malaysian govn and shred the kl/beijing relation to tatters.
another massive explosion in china, zhejiang.
so who’r the real *conspiracy theorists*,
those who blamed all these on corruption or
those who cry sabotage ?
the fundamental theorom of probability,
*once is accident, twice coincidence, thrice…..enemy action* !
by the fourth time in less than a mth,
its obvious the sobs wants the chinese to know its their *calling card*.
*When the Tianjin explosion happened right after China’s currency devaluation (i.e. currency war), Natural News was told by Chinese dissidents that the United States was engaged in “kinetic retaliation” against China for its cyber warfare attacks and currency moves. Naysayers insisted Tianjin was just a “random event” and wouldn’t be repeated.*
i was 90% sure its an *enemy action* when tianjin was hit, the way i was sure about mh370,
im 99.99% sure now.
*Then a retaliatory explosion destroyed a U.S. military weapons depot in Tokyo. A sabotage device was found on the scene, all but proving the explosion was deliberate sabotage.*
u bet its sabotage, but by who ?
this isnt china’s m.o.
my hunch says its a murcunt ff, planting evidences is one of the oldest trick in the cia playbook.
*As I wrote just five days ago, “Watch for yet more war posturing, currency devaluation moves, debt dumping attacks, cyber warfare, strategic hacking and “unexplained” explosions throughout the remainder of 2015. These are not random events. They are all part of the war with China that has already begun.”*
all the socalled cyber attacks from china are unsubstantiated allegations by the pentagoons and its contractors.
where’s the *war* ?
it’s been one way attack all the way since the opium war.
this mike adams dude claims to have many *chinese dissidents* informants ,
more revealing perhaps, he banned me from posting in his site, .
Apply that to the problem of US bridge and road collapses
70 of them listed. Enemy action? No — infrastructure failure from lack spending on maintenance and replacement.
China has been undergoing rapid growth and has many old buildings and plants that were neglected for lack of funds for years and are now being pressed into service, as well as some problems with government and maintenance people. This has been an ongoing problem for quite a while now.
Could some be the result of local groups, or even perhaps an outside agency, attacking them for political purposes? Maybe — but it’s gathering the facts from investigation which will tell the true story, not jumping to conclusions or a catchy phrase that has no basis in actual probability.
*Apply that to the problem of US bridge and road collapses
70 of them listed. Enemy action? *
pray tell, whom do u think is that mortal enemy of the unitedsnake ?
Very accurate remarks and innuendo about Canada, (my country). We are, renowned as the most pathetic US boot-licker of all time. (A neutered nation). I found this during my two years in Iran. But Iranians are a polite people and were kind about mentioning it.
