Russia-China Joint War Games

 

A war game exercise held by Russia and China was named "Peace Mission 2007". The exercise has lasted nine days and began in China's Northwest province of Xinjiang. This marks the first time such an exercise has been held in Russia.

The exercise involved around 6000 troops, mostly Russian and Chinese, but also troops from the neighboring countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Most of the funding for the war games is coming from Russia.

The war games are seen as boosting ties between the countries, as well as a counter-balance to US dominance in world affairs. The Shanghai Cooperation Organisation is also contemplating inviting Iran to be a full member in the future.

  you know  
 
they’d be a lot more productive if they would just leave the war out of it and play joint games or drinking games. . . or milk a few goats.

  Just another  
 
attempt to warn America off.

Hopefully it will work and the US won't start any more wars.

There are too many of them going on now days.

  Always such nice names for these games  
 
The Czech-Russian joint military exercises were always Druzba (Friendship in both Russian & Czech).
because the nature of these war games / exercises is always about "friendship".

These exrcises are also a chance for armies (sic) to test their C3I systems for interoperability. That way all of the glitches can worked out before they are erally needed. I wonder when the NK-Russian (or NK-Sino) games will begin. Or, if not, it may be further sign of strained NK-Russian (or NK-Sino) relations.
