Interested on people's opinions of possible Russia- China and or using allies to segregate USA-EUROPEAN military forces to start major conflicts on two fronts e.g.. Asian e.g. south china sea and EUROPEAN- Russia. In order to separate major western military powers on to fronts to weaken power and effectiveness.? As Russia and China are moving leaps and bounds in military expansion and possible global expansion at a very similar time line. Possibly believing in the not to distant future a USA AND EUROPEAN defeat or near defeat could be economically viable to change the status quo in their favour as a team effort or possible to use one theatre to take advantage in another. Possibly even using nk and or Iran as pawns on the board . Let alone Taiwan south china sea and or previous USSR territory etc etc.

I don't think they would coordinate on that level. I do think, however, if one starts something, the other will take advantage of it.

Russia and China do not like each other. But right now, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend."

I am as concerned about internal forces in Europe actively working to weaken NATO as anything external from Russia or China.

The globalist inclinations (yes I used that term) of many leaders in Europe are having a bout of angina with the nationalist movements in Europe and being bolstered by the nationalist turn in the US at same time.

Germany was quite content to let their defense needs be met by more American debt to pay for it as long as there was a US administration who shared their “vision” of an enlarging centralized control over member and allied nations.

When the mantle of leader of the new world order was transferred from Obama to Merkel the dye was cast that the status quo was on the defensive.

Why if Russia is such a threat to Europe was Germany quite content to continue buying gas from them.
The answer to many in Europe Russia isn’t a threat their a partner.

Just as the democrats were good with Clinton's “reset” with Russia and selling them uranium from the US. Until Trump was elected, then it was Russian collusion.
