Changes in the remit of the SMO

As I noted in the daily chronicles this morning, the rumors of a change in the remit of the SMO are rife in Russia.  The need for this is also being openly expressed by leaders in various domains.  This has been consistent among the Russian people’s wishes and has increased over time.  Possibly where the SMO made sense at the start, it is not making sense now.  The catastrophe of Kharkov has now put this issue front and center, as well as the clearly visible NATO interaction.  It was always there, but now, it is visible.

The expectation is that the SMO will in some or other way, take on the shape of an anti-terrorism action, which will change the battle space and the actions by the Russian forces materially.

To my great surprise, I checked the Chinese Foreign Ministry press conference briefing this morning, and find that a sizable part of this is, you can guess, about terrorism.  And then, for those that do not know, the SCO which is starting to meet the day after tomorrow, was constituted as an anti-terror organization.  From this point onwards, with a anti-terrorist slant to the Special Military Operation, suddenly there is the complete SCO that may just decide they want themselves a piece of the Ukraine.  This is wild speculation at this time, but it does connect the dots and a stated objective at the SCO is that they will stop NATO’s latest attempts to grow into the sphere of the South China Seas and of course, Eurasia.

China News Service: The UN Office of Counter-Terrorism hosted the UN Global Congress of Victims of Terrorism at the UN headquarters in New York from September 8 to 9. Cheng Guoping, External Security Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, led a delegation to the meeting. Can you give us more information on that?

Mao Ning: China attaches great importance to protecting the rights of victims of terrorism. China sent a high-level delegation to that congress. In the remarks delivered at the event, the Chinese side put forward a four-point proposal, namely firmly combating all forms of terrorism, eradicating the breeding ground for terrorism, effectively addressing the root causes of terrorism and making every effort to help victims of terrorism. China called for active support to the Global Security Initiative put forward by President Xi Jinping, commitment to the vision of common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable security, and effort to build a world of lasting peace and common security. This was widely recognized.

It is especially worth mentioning that Kaidiriye Maimaitijiang, a victim of terrorism from China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, shared the story of her father’s heroic act as a police officer in the fight against terrorists, who gave his life for the cause. She also shared how the government looked after her family, which received a warm response at the meeting. Participants of the meeting expressed their understanding and support for the counter-terrorism campaign in Xinjiang. One representative came up to Kaidiriye Maimaitijiang to say how moving her story was and how it helped grow the understanding of the counter-terrorism situation in Xinjiang and China’s efforts.

Terrorism is a common enemy of humanity. China will continue to take an active part in international counter-terrorism cooperation, support the UN’s central, coordinating role, resolutely combat all forms of terrorism, earnestly protect the rights of victims of terrorism and make new contributions to the international counter-terrorism cause.”

I have to speculate that the Chinese government and the Russian government have already discussed this change in remit of the SCO, if this is indeed what is in the cards.

To my further surprise, the two guys from the Duran discussed the pivot to a terrorism plank as well.  It is a good video and they pull it apart somewhat and clarify the possible reasoning.  The first 27 minutes is devoted to this, and thereafter they change to other war reporting.

There will be interesting times ahead.  How will Russia change the remit?  They have to, because after Kharkov, the population insists on it.

Given the Collective West has China as the next target after Russia, China has a lot at stake in the outcome of the SMO. Long ago the Collective West lost any hope of playing one against the other, either Russia or China. Russia & China are now partners for the… Read more »

Well, emersonreturn, first time I get a lesson in painting applied to the military field. Your strong descriptive powers are those of a painter, visualization is needed to see the end result, color intensity is applied as the painting develops. I am now visualizing the Ukraine canvas back in Feb.,… Read more »
