China and Russia target the US and Taiwan in First Joint Drills

China is quite formidable without Russia helping them and complicating the equation. According to military analyst and journalist Alexander Golts "The Chinese want to use Russia in a complicated game with the U.S. and Taiwan," while Chinese military expert Ni Lexiong, says "the implied message of Peace Mission 2005 is very obvious: We are facing the same threat." The only good that can come of this is for the United States to treat this as a training opportunity of our own and get prepared for the confrontation the Chinese are preparing for.
