As the world continues down its inexorable path toward mass conflict, the lines being drawn by the industrialized nations of the world isn’t hard to see.

Essentially, the geopolitical world is halving itself:  Freedom and democracy on one side, authoritarian tyrants on the other.

This is why the latest sightings by the US Coast Guard are so worrisome.

A U.S. Coast Guard ship on routine patrol in the Bering Sea came across a guided missile cruiser from China, officials said Monday.

But it turned out the cruiser wasn’t alone as it sailed about 86 miles north of Alaska’s Kiska Island, on Sept. 19.

Two other Chinese naval ships and four Russian naval vessels, including a destroyer, were spotted in single formation, the patrol boat, known as a cutter called Kimball, discovered.

The Coast Guard noted that there was nothing particularly sinister about the ships, other than their presence.

The Honolulu-based Kimball, a 418-foot (127-meter) vessel, observed as the ships broke formation and dispersed. A C-130 Hercules provided air support for the Kimball from the Coast Guard station in Kodiak.

“While the formation has operated in accordance with international rules and norms, we will meet presence with presence to ensure there are no disruptions to U.S. interests in the maritime environment around Alaska,” Rear Adm. Nathan Moore, Seventeenth Coast Guard District commander said.

Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping have seemingly renewed their relationship for all the world to see, in what appears to be a blatant bit of geopolitical posturing.
