Russia and China are teaming up against the United States in an effort to stop its military expansion. The two countries now consider the United States as a real threat which many also interpret as a declaration of alliance and possible war against the West. Will World War 3 ensue soon?
The US missile deployment in Europe has triggered Russia and China to brand the country as a “real and direct” threat. According to reports, Moscow and Beijing are now squaring up to the United States with World War 3 possibly looming in the air.
Russia and China Take America As A Real Threat
According to Daily Star, Vladimir Putin seems to be in a collision course with the White House as he is under suspicion of “war crimes” in Syria. Now, an official from China, a general, has called out the United States for its action with a matching promise that Beijing and Moscow will respond accordingly.

“The US did not provide legally-binding guarantees that the missile defense system they are deploying in Europe would not be aimed against Russia,” said Major General Cai Jun, vice head of warfare bureau.
“But at the same time it poses a real and direct threat to the Russian security.”
“China and Russia have similar positions about strategic anti-ballistic missile systems and oppose attempts by any nation or group of nations to create such systems unilaterally at the expense of strategic international security,” he added.
US Launches Missiles Against Enemies
Russian Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznikhir also said that there are conflicting thoughts about the antimissile shield and the nuclear deal with Iran.
The system’s “anti-satellite capability is one of the reasons why the US rejects any treaties on banning weapons in space,” RT quoted Poznikhir.
“The actions of the US do not give credibility to their statements that Russian and Chinese missiles and satellites are not considered targets for their antimissile systems,” added the official.
