Yes it is. Adding Russia was a political gesture to begin with, but at least with Yeltsin administration, Russia was quickly westernizing and civilizing. With Putin's dictatorship, it goes further and further the way of North Korea.

Lets bring in China. Ha!

Let's not. Very different values. We have UN for meaningless exchanges of opinions of diplomats from different countries, we need something to coordinate efforts of countries who want basically the same. We had G7 for that. The group probably should add Australia though, and maybe even Spain later.
