Russia, Iran, China to hold joint naval drills from Friday

China, Russia, and Iran will conduct joint naval drills beginning Friday in the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Oman, amid tensions between Tehran and Washington. Set to take place from December 27 to 30, the military exercises aim to ’deepen exchange and cooperation between the navies of the three countries’, Chinese defence ministry spokesman said.

Of course we in the West must keep battle-ready, but those 3 frenemies won't be able to cooperate very well. At some point they'll turn against each other: Russia has vast Asian territory that China craves to populate, and Iran wants to export Shiite revolution that even Shiites despise from Iran to Lebanon.

China's navy will be a potential threat in the future and Iran's navy only needs to be capable of controlling the Strait of Hormuz to be a threat (at present it is not a threat). Russia's submarines are the only part of their Navy that should be considered a serious threat.

If one were to try imagining WW3, seems like China, Russia, and Iran might square off against the US and NATO -- isn't that a pleasant thought...
