    actually, i dont entirely agree with the assessment that Russia’s attempted diplomatic normalization with Japan in recent times is aimed at “counterbalancing China’s influence” at all,

    instead of “counterbalancing China” i think Mr.Putin is making this strategic move as part of Russia’s own “pivot to Asia”, or rather a further developing on the “Euroasian integrationist” strategy outlined by the likes of former Russian PM Primakov promoting “Russia, China, and India as a “strategic triangle” to counterbalance the United States”.

    Therefore, its also significant to look at what’s actually happening in light of his recent meeting with the Japanese PM, is the fact president Putin, before meeting with the Japanese PM, was first interviewed by Japanese media during which he compared particularly the status of Russo-Chinese relation with that of Russo-Japanese one,

    when referring to the Kuril Islands disputes, the biggest obstacle for the two in normalizing their relations, Putin uses the example of the settlement of historical territorial disputes between Russia and China, calling it “That was a compromise between two friendly nations”.

    “Russia and Japan may settle their historical conflict, Putin said, but Russia is uncertain how far Japan is prepared to go, considering its “obligations to its allies.””

    “With China we have the highest volume of bilateral trade and continue to liberalize our trade relations. Meanwhile, Japan imposed economic sanctions against us. Do you see the difference?” he asked rhetorically.”

    there, unmistakably, it should be obvious to see that Putin’s “Japan strategy” has more to do with “counterbalancing the U.S.” rather than “counterbalancing China”.

    Which was highlighted by the fact that back in September, the first ever joint Sino-Russian naval exercise was held in the South China Sea, a “hotspot” that not only could pull Japan into a military conflict with China but could also potentially lead to WW3 as blatantly warned by none other than George Soros.

    But unbeknownst to most, just 2 weeks before Sino-Russian joint naval drill in the South China Sea, the Chinese foreign ministry invited delegates from ASEAN member states and organized a conference on “South China Sea” issue in the Chinese city of Manzhouli,
    Manzhouli is a border town located to the extreme North-East part of the country which witnesses Russian trade convoys and tourists transit through Russia and China on daily basis, the busiest of its kind along Sino-Russian borders,

    the kind of “message” the Chinese want to convey to the ASEAN representatives by hosting the “South China Sea conference” in Manzholi reflect only the fact that 2 weeks later the Russian naval ships were sailing alongside Chinese warships in the “South China Sea”.

    By no accident, both countries arranged their respective military honor guards to be the last(an arrangement signifying importance) on the marching order when they paraded on each other’s “Victory Day” last year, in fact, the Russians added a special section of historical exhibition in the Moscow Museum commemorating the Soviet victory over fascist Japan in Manchuria, just for the occasion of the joint celebration of China’s “Victory Day” parade last September.

    That’s just naming a few examples, to me, Putin’s “reapproachment with Japan” has more to do with gravitating Japan from American orbit than actually “counterbalancing China”.

    In fact, one may argue the opposite may be true, considering the fact just before Chinese prime minister embarking on a November overseas “Silk Road tour” which included countries like Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Lativa, Estonia and last stop Russia, Putin actually reiterated his support for the integration of Russia-led EAEU(Eurasian Economic Union) with China’s “Silk Road initiative” in the Russian duma, before he received the Chinese PM in Moscow.

    Putin’s support for the “Euroasian intergration” strategy is also evident in his support for “the 2016 Silk Way Rally” which was hosted at the Kremlin by the Russian president this year, the very naming of the event is in itself a reflection of adoption of such strategy.

    hence, does the fact that countries on Chinese PM’s visiting list like Lativa, Estonia are at the moment rather “hostile” towards Russia, means China is trying to “counterbalancing Russia” with these strategic decisions?

    not necessarily at all.

      henry, good to hear from you again. Your arguments have merit.

      This might explain all the recent efforts to woo Russia away from China…

    Putin appears to be angling for some really big, huge commitment from Japan. Could it be Russia wants Japan to wean itself away from its USSA alliance? Mr. Abe did say he was thinking “about what relations between Japan and Russia should be like in 20 or 30 years.”
    Of course that appears to be a step too far for Japan at this time, and could Russia actually keep the Chinese, and their lackeys in North Korea from moving against Japan?

    • Nidster - on December 17, 2016 at 11:46 pm

      Of course Japan is never giving up on its alliance with the USSA, so it must be Russia wants Japan to support that historically Crimea has been Russian territory, and then there could be some sort of resolution over the islands.

    Given that TPTB in the US are coming unglued right before our very eyes and the entire “establishment” (i.e., the corrupt cabal) is going bat-guano crazy trying to keep Trump from assuming power and draining their nice cozy swamp, then yes, if I were the PM of Japan I’d also invite Putin over for a talk as well. I’m sure they have lots to talk about.

    And looking forward 30 years? At the exponential rate the US is melting down, more like 30 months.

      “…and the entire “establishment” (i.e., the corrupt cabal) is going bat-guano crazy trying to keep Trump from assuming power…”

      Basta, that to me is the most-interesting aspect of the whole Enterprise (hah!). The MSM has come-out as fully-owned, far-beyond anything I have seen before. The raw scent of fear and their desperation is palpable. I believe something is really-up behind the curtains, as the PTB could theoretically take Trump out without a blink…

    USA with clipped wings.
    EU in tatters and almost a big economic Ukraine block.

    Planning is prudent, interesting times who will be the follow up top dog for a few decades and become the next terror to be overcome.

    Abe-Putin joint press conference, Abe says that peace treaty must be signed, Kuril Islands as place of peace; elderly Japanese want to visit the places where their ancestors are buried and since their average age is 81 time is short….
    Cites proverb “If you flourish your neighbours will flourish”.
    Ministers from both countries announce agreements including natural resources, nuclear energy, communications, health, agriculture, petroleum cooperation, joint investment fund, universities, airports (80 documents signed of which 68 commercial deals).

    Found this documentary on Admiral Byrde’s Antarctic mission and exploration. There is indeed a warm ice free land in Antarctica formed by massive warm water lakes. No UFO’s though.

      Wow, that link didn’t last long. It was a link to a 2 hour documentary by the military covering the entire top secret High Jump operation. Fascinating documentary.

    The East has always thought long range Abe and Putin know how really negotiate. And one of the most important things if you think about is not leaving a mess for your successors to inherit but a sound base for them to build on.

    I hope you feel much better very soon, Dr. Farrell. Perhaps this interesting new tidbit from an uncharacteristically ominous presentation by Dr. Steven Greer will perk you up a little. After expressing his pressing concern that we’re at the cusp of an alien false flag event, he corroborates a good deal of your Nazi technology viewpoint beginning at around 28:30, including an intriguing claim that his new movie “Unacknowledged”, scheduled to be released early next year, will contain footage of the Nazi Bell.

    Two things I would watch for:

    If Japan gets serious in cozying-up to Russia, I would look for a ‘warning’ shot-across-the-bow from some neocon bigwig. Desist, or there will be serious consequences. (Sound familiar?)

    Second, we will get to ‘check by results’ how serious Japan has been in getting-rid of ALL electronically-based controllers in their various nuclear and industrial facilities. “Son of StuxNet” will be a movie soon-to-be-released in Japan.

    (If all else fails, look for anomalous, 10-mile-deep, ‘rolling’ earthquakes under Japanese cities and offshore, ‘earthquake’-based tsunamis…)

    That China/Russia silk road is where the future on Earth is being paved/tracked. The other venture would have to be space. Those two future arenas are being positioned for among power brokers.
    The terrorist aspect would encompass finance terror through the deep state. This means there are ongoing tectonic shifts still occurring with that nebulous structure[like the iinternational Nazis, international crime syndicates].

    • Robert Barricklow on December 15, 2016 at 7:21 pm

      For me there are two aspects I look for:
      the public power aspect versus the private power one.
      The other is the ongoing battle between nature
      & the corporate robots.
