Why did the new replacement for Mr Soleimani as head of Quds invite China and Russia to replace US in the Middle East?

Not China or Russia, but China and Russia.

He doesn't separate them because he, as anyone with a clue knows Putin and Xi are joined at the hip. The old former Commie allies are getting the band back together,

LOL. again, clueless.

Putin has openly admitted his values dont align with China.
Putin signed with Hungary and a dozen European nations.
Putin will betray China.

Comes down to spirituality. Putin isnt a Commie, end of story.

From 2 years ago. This axis got a whole lot stronger this week.


The John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University is a public policy and public administration school, of Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States. presentation.

Triple Axis: China, Russia, Iran and Power Politics

July 2018

Library of International Relations Series

Overview

The most significant challenge to the post–Cold War international order is the growing power of ambitious states opposed to the West. Iran, Russia, and China each view the global structure through the prism of historical experience. Rejecting the universality of Western liberal values, these states and their Triple Axis Cover imagegovernments each consider the relative decline of Western economic hegemony as an opportunity. Yet cooperation between them remains fragmentary. The end of Western sanctions and the Iranian nuclear deal; the Syrian conflict; new institutions in Central and East Asia: in all these areas and beyond, the potential for unity or divergence is striking. In this new and comprehensive study, Ariane Tabatabai and Dina Esfandiary address the substance of this "triple axis" in the realms of energy, trade, and military security. In particular, they scrutinize Iran-Russia and the often overlooked field of Iran-China relations. Their argument — that interactions between the three will shape the world stage for decades to come — will be of interest to anyone looking to understand the contemporary international security puzzle.

From today.

China and Iran: a relationship built on trade, weapons and oil

  •  ....China and Iran signed an agreement in 2016 to bolster defence and military cooperation and fight terrorism. The two nations had held their first joint naval drill in Persian Gulf waters in 2014. In late December last year, four days of naval exercises between China, Iran and Russia, covering 17,000 sq km (6,564 square miles), were held in the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Oman.
  • ...Kevjn Lim, a doctoral researcher in political science, government and international affairs at Tel Aviv University, said China had been positioning itself as a stabilising force in the region, including in support of Iran.

    “While relatively modest in scope, the trilateral exercise [in December] was still unprecedented and couched in terms of improving security,” he said. “While not a defence alliance, this growing convergence among the three countries should probably not be that surprising given that all three are also targets of American sanctions and oppose its unilateralism.

    “That naval exercise was also China’s implicit way of warning against any large-scale US military measure against Iran.”

Trump asked South Korea to deliver a birthday note to Kim Jong Un, official says
Personal message reportedly already delivered to North Korea via the "appropriate" channels
Jeongmin Kim | Oliver Hotham January 10, 2020
SHARE
Image: White House

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday asked South Korean President Moon Jae-in to deliver a personal birthday greeting to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on his behalf, a top official from Seoul’s Blue House said on Friday.

Speaking to reporters at Incheon airport on his return from a visit to Washington DC, director of South Korea’s National Security Office (NSO) Chung Eui-yong said that the note had since been delivered to the North via the “appropriate method.”

“January 8 was Chairman Kim’s birthday and President Trump, giving well-wishing remarks on [that occasion], requested that it would be nice if President Moon could convey that message to Chairman Kim,” Chung, who met with Trump at the oval office on Wednesday, said.

Kim Jong Un turned 36 on Wednesday, though North Korea did not publicly comment on the occasion in its state media.

The birthday note from Trump, should it be confirmed, represents the first publicly-confirmed contact between the two leaders since August, when the U.S. President said he had received a “small apology” from Kim for a series of missile tests by Pyongyang.

It also comes following a prolonged period of diplomatic stalemate by Washington and Pyongyang, with the DPRK leader having earlier in the month hinted at a return to long-range missile and nuclear testing.

Trump has throughout that impasse, however, continued to emphasize his good relationship with Kim and his belief that the DPRK leader committed to denuclearization at their first summit in Singapore in 2018.

“He likes me, I like him, we get along … he’s representing his country, I’m representing my country, we have to do what we have to do,” he told reporters on New Year’s eve, just hours after Kim was reported to have warned that the country may soon test a new “strategic” weapon.

“But he did sign a contract, he did sign an agreement talking about denuclearization… That was done in Singapore, and I think he’s a man of his word, so we’re going to find out.”

Does “Trumpism” as an ideology exist, and if it does, is it conservative, or is it just opportunism?

It is opportunism. He probably does have conservative instincts, but let’s face it, he doesn’t have any thoughts that are longer than 140 characters, so how can he have a real philosophy?

Trump is the antithesis of Conservativism. A combination of left and right wing grievance Populism(complain about everything but no practical solutions other than racism and isolationism), in which his voters are interchangeable with Bernie voters.

Steve Bannon arguably the global leader of the movement, tries to convince his supporters that Bernie voters are not a genuine populist movement. He is threatened by Berners.. 

Never Trump Republicans are the old Conservative Republican Party.

Is it officially still called exonerated when found not guilty in a rigged trial?

Lev's notes and text messages are very interesting Doc. Sounds like Rudy et al were threatening to kill Ambassador Yovanovich. That doesn't sound very good dont you think?

Mitch McConnell wont let Lev or Bolton or anyway testify in the trial starting next week, so Lev has done next best thing. Semms everone wants to get in front of the story.

First in, first with immunity.

He and his lawyer will appear on MSNBC tonight(1:00PM Sydney time)instead with the blessing of prosecutors in his SDNY criminal case that Rudy is yet to be indicted in.

JUST IN: Robert Hyde tells @NBCNews in a text message he has “extensive comments on this matter” that he’ll make public at 7pm tonight. He won’t say where or what they’ll be
