oh well, the next big war could very well be Russia vs China anyway, they'll be studying each other very minutely...

China sent a token regiment. Don't get carried away with ideas of a combined hyper-power emerging on the scene. ;)

lol, there won't be a combined hyper power, China still rankles at having lost the lands North of the Amur... neither power would care to lower its border defenses lest the other choose to cross the river...

Not bloody likely.
People hardly ever make use of the freedoms they have, such as freedom of thought, instead they demand freedom of speech as compensation.

Yeah they're petty like that when they have the world to gain.

Sounds good to me. Time for US hegemony to end. Let someone else be the Great Satan(s) for a while.

If Trump is smart, he'll extricate us from NATO, bring all the troops home, shut down all overseas bases, and wash our hands of this world police business once and for all. Alas, he's not smart, so we'll probably end up with WWIII instead.
By that standard, which politician is smart? Which was or is going to do more to extricate us from NATO, bring troops home and shut down overseas bases? I'll vote for that person, too.

Relative to Trump, maybe all.

What exactly is your point?
