What Would Happen If The U.S. Went To War Against Russia And China At The Same Time?

Robert Farley, National Interest: US Military's Worst Nightmare: A War with Russia and China (at the Same Time)

What would happen?

The United States discarded its oft-misunderstood “two war” doctrine, intended as a template for providing the means to fight two regional wars simultaneously, late last decade. Designed to deter North Korea from launching a war while the United States was involved in fighting against Iran or Iraq (or vice versa,) the idea helped give form to the Department of Defense’s procurement, logistical and basing strategies in the post–Cold War, when the United States no longer needed to face down the Soviet threat. The United States backed away from the doctrine because of changes in the international system, including the rising power of China and the proliferation of highly effective terrorist networks.

Rhetorical question, fact is America couldn't wage a war with one of them let alone both. Look any developed country engaged in war with another developed country will result in an all out war. It why they use proxies and invoke civil wars, its unthinkable to actually attack a highly developed country and expect anything but your own annihilation!

Our So Called Leaders in the west have not been successful in War since they started listening to the Stink Tanks, I mean Think Tanks. In fact the Stink Tanks not only screwed up our War Fighting ability but more importantly screwed up Western Economic capability, which actually is how you really win wars. Because the west lost it's manufacturing capability we only have one final option open too us and that is a Nuclear Option and considering the Inbred Clowns we have as leaders I don't hold much hope.
