Letter: Russia, China and North Korea could form new power alliance

Russia, China and North Korea could form new power alliance

Putin was left to go on unchecked for years, largely in part due to the corruption, greed of oligarchs in Russia and America. Trump added more empowerment to Putin through his alliance with Putin and his cabal. No one country (or countries) has the power or will to impede Putin. It is, as always, the “power of money”, corrupt alliances and unchecked power, that gives Putin and his allies the absolute power they can wield, and the so called “free world” countries have aided and abetted this situation.

These latest events will ultimately give China what they want: Taiwan and other geographic regions. North Korea will invade South Korea. The new “axis of power”, Russia, China, North Korea will be impossible to contain, and even more problematic, when, and if there is a major conflict (war) between the western democracies and this new alliance, what countries (combined, or otherwise) will be capable of dealing with them? And of course India will remain on the sidelines.

The reality: our world, and what is left of our democracies, this planet is in crisis!

We have seen the movies, read the novels, read the non-fiction, historical books, journalistic writings and have seen the “scriptures” on the walls. History always repeats itself. Is the human race addicted to self harm behaviour?

We have not learned, or chose to be educated by our past. These problems are not solely regarding world conflict, it includes environmental crises and issues. We have disregarded developing countries and the people(s) of these regions. We have neglected our own people, we have neglected the health of our planet. And, these behaviours are not new; they have been on-going and repeated generation after generation. Really, what did we expect? A happy future or storybook ending? It is ironic that we have so much in our lives and have taken so much for granted. We have not shared our wealth.

The ad says; “Speed Kills”; apparently so does greed and power that goes unchecked, along with inability to stop repeating bad behaviour and historically bad actions.
