Saudi Arabia looks set to be joining forces with the Russian and Chinese imperialist regimes in their struggle against American and Western imperialism….
The contours of global capitalism are changing it seems
“Saudi Arabia is joining an anti-Western influence bloc formed by Russia and China, in a sign of Riyadh’s deepening ties with Beijing as the US pivots away from the Middle East.
The kingdom’s cabinet approved a plan to join the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) as a “dialogue partner”, a precursor to being granted full membership, SPA, the Saudis’ state news agency, announced on Wednesday.
Formed in 2001 by Russia, China and former Soviet states in Central Asia, the SCO is a political and security bloc of countries spanning much of Eurasia and has expanded to include India and Pakistan, with a view to challenging Western influence in the region.
Iran also signed documents for full membership last year.”

Realignment of capitalist blocs and cartels, old enemies become new friends, and old friends become new enemies. Whoever does not have clear socialist principles will fall in the trap of any of these capitalist groups, or will support inter-capitalist class contradictions, and in essence they are all the sameApril 16, 2023 at 8:22 am #242508
