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...

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.
“When I was in college, I took a terrorism class. ... The thing that was interesting in the class was every time the professor said ‘Al Qaeda’ his shoulders went up, But you know, it is that you don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity, you don’t say ‘England’ with the intensity. You don’t say ‘the army’ with the intensity,” she continued. “... But you say these names [Al Qaeda] because you want that word to carry weight. You want it to be something.” - Ilhan Omar

Relative to Trump, maybe all.

What exactly is your point?
