The Arabs are getting wiser and want to control their oil and decide their own future. The world will sooner or later abandon the American dollar as the international currency. The world would soon stop buying cheap and worthless American Treasury bonds and that would be the end of the American dollar and the end of printing easy money. The dollar would be worthless when the world gets wiser to the cheating Americans, getting rich without having to work or pay for it, just printing money.
In the meantime China and Russia can play the game in an arms race. Both Russia and China should spend more on their defence. If China is to roll out 6 aircraft carriers and Russia likewise or even 3, that would make a combined force of at least a dozen aircraft carriers to match the existing 10 American aircraft carriers.
What would the Americans or Trump do? It can be expected that they would want to double their carrier fleet to 20 or more. They need the numbers to maintain their superiority as the world’s hegemon. Russia and China should not just confine themselves to aircraft carriers and ships, but ICBMs, aircraft, satellites etc etc. This would force to the Americans to spend big and to bankrupt themselves faster.
The Americans no longer have the capacity and the money to compete in an arms race without the industrial complexes to pay for it. They also cannot rely on free or cheap Arab oil or printing more greenbacks. The greenbacks would rapidly run out of its usefulness, become irrevelant and end up like monopoly notes.
Russia and China must proceed to challenge the Americans in an all out arms race to bankrupt the American economy and bring the Empire to its knees. The Americans just cannot afford it. Just keep the defence spending up and let the Americans try to outdo and outperform and outspend the combined forces and defence budget of Russia and China. A 3 times more American strategy to remain aloof and unchallenged would see the Americans huffing and puffing to its own demise.
$600b defence budget and the Trumps wants to spend more. Go ahead and spend. The Russians and Chinese should oblige by providing the reasons and motivation for the Americans to keep spending on defence and make it $1 trillion. That would be nice.
