I'm talking about the future of that China-Russia relationship. As the US continues to decline, the need for China-Russia cooperation will also decreases (the purpose of this cooperation is to counter the west). Also, as China grows, the relationship will become more lop-sided and less important to China. This could strain their relations as well.. Of course, this would be contingent on a massive decline of the US. Which is certainly possible in the long term. It's also possible that won't happen. This is a possible scenario is all I'm saying. Mostly a thought exercise.
The geopolitical situation is not static after all. If it were, the US would still be waring with the UK. Nations become "friends" and "enemies" all the time.
Anyway, my doubt of a US-China war, or US versus China & Russia war stems from the fact that the US is in decline. If that decline is large enough, China-Russia might not need or care about a war with the US.
