Xi Jinping and Vladimir PutinA national defense analyst isn't surprised about this week's cozy military cooperation between Russia and Communist China.

Russian and Chinese bombers recently flew a joint patrol mission over the Western Pacific in a show of increasingly close military ties between Moscow and Beijing. The Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement that the joint mission was intended to "develop and deepen the comprehensive Russia-China partnership, further increase the level of cooperation between the two militaries, expand their ability for joint action, and strengthen strategic stability."

Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis (USA-Ret.), a senior fellow for national security at Family Research Council, says he's not surprised.

"The Russians and Chinese have been cooperating on a number of fronts around the world, not just in the East China Sea and the Sea of Japan," he informs. "These things are not unexpected. The rhetoric out of Vladimir Putin earlier in the year that a strategic partnership could become an alliance is something that he doesn't dismiss outright."

And Maginnis explains that Chinese President Xi Jinping is also very aggressive.

"He's just as dangerous as Mao Tse Tung, who claimed the lives of more than 60-million Chinese citizens," he tells One News Now. "So, we should not be debating whether or not this is going to happen – it has already happened.

"We are in a cold war with the Chinese and the Russians. This does not surprise me, [and] it will continue."

Maginnis is author of the book "Alliance of Evil," which establishes that the U.S. and its allies are locked in a prophetic global confrontation on many fronts – one of which is a new kind of dual "cold war" with the Russians and Chinese.
