The strategic relations of cooperation and partnership between China and Russia should be expanded to include to include all countries that had been bullied and sidelined by the US and its allies in order to set up another force to counter the evil intentions of the US and its allies. If the US and its allies think they can gang together and bully the weak nations, let this force grow in strength to counter their arrogant stance and ambitions. This is the only way to show the US and its allies that others can also do what they did to the weaker nations. They should be taught a lesson so that they will appreciate the meaning of cooperation and peaceful coexistence in this world.
