China, Russia and Iran all “are non-belligerent. They threaten no one. They support peace and stability,” according to an American author and political commentator in Chicago.
Stephen Lendman made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Sunday while commenting on a statement by US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper who has said he plans to shift the US military’s focus away from the Middle East and toward countering “revisionist powers” of Russia and China.
During his speech, the Pentagon chief said he was sticking to the national defense priorities set by his predecessor, Jim Mattis, and accused Moscow and Beijing of seeking “veto power” over the economic and security decisions of smaller countries.
