Putin signs deals with Vietnam in bid to shore up ties in Asia to offset Moscow's growing isolation

The agreements between Russia and Vietnam were not as substantial as the pact Putin signed with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Wednesday, which pledged mutual aid in the event of invasion, said Nigel Gould-Davies, a senior fellow for Russia and Eurasia with the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London, and a former British ambassador to Belarus.

Putin’s recent visits to China and now North Korea and Vietnam are attempts to “break the international isolation,” said Nguyen Khac Giang, an analyst at Singapore’s ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute.

Giang said Russia is important to Vietnam for two reasons: It is the biggest supplier of military equipment to the Southeast Asian nation, and Russian oil exploration technologies help maintain Vietnam's sovereignty claims in the contested South China Sea.

Thanks, Jean!

Having a foreign policy that provokes and increases your enemies and forces them to unite has been another huge  Biden blunder. 

However, his objective has always been to have a continuation of war with Russia, so its to imagine that his advisors would not have anticipated this.

Every decision so far, with regards to NATO/Biden's war with Russia has been the polar opposite of somebody that wants peace.

And this war, that should have never started. Then ended a long time ago, will continue to go on as long as American don't speak out!

The 2 most important things to politicians are:

1. Votes, so they can remain in power

2. Money to support their campaign and to use for self enriching agenda (legal bribes from lobby and other interests).

Wars help to increase the money coming from our military-industrial complex to bribe and reward good politicians that pass legislation that spends hundreds of billions of EXTRA money on weapons. 

Votes keep coming from complacent and brainwashed Americans.

Stop either one and  it will likely reduce the incentive of our politicians to be in wars.
