Secretary Of State Rex Tillerson: U.S. And Russia Versus China ?
Looks like our next Secretary Of State will be Rex Tillerson. He's the CEO of Exxon Mobil. He also has a friendly relationship with Russia's President Vladimir Putin.If Trump is trying to cool the rhetoric here and abroad about Russia he's made a good choice. A warm relationship between Russia and the U.S. should somewhat worry China. We share with Russia approximately an equal number of nuclear warheads and as important many delivery vehicles.So we and Russia flank China and it's 1.4 billion ravaging population. China is eating it's way through the planet. So it's an easier choice to befriend Russia militarily. China looks at the world with the eyes if its neighbors can fit into a frying pan. Russia has more modest needs when it comes to lunch.Trump made a a good strategic choice in a Russian detente.
