China just publicly warned Russia it’s time to end the Ukraine war

Very publicly. How publicly? In an opinion piece in The NY Times saying Russia needs an “off-ramp” from the highway to hell that is the Ukrainian invasion.

Imma highlight the part that matters. It’s the part where the writer calls Russia an “economic burden” to China.

But who’s the writer? Probably some hopeful airhead like Tom Friedman, right?

Oh.

This a warning from Beijing to the Kremlin, make no mistake. We can quit you, Vlad! You’ve had your fun, now it’s time to declare victory and go home.

Whether it makes any difference is another question.
