The world is approaching what is often referred to as Doomsday. In other words, the World War 3.

China, Russia and Pakistan may have just formed an unofficial alliance to counter America’s global dominance. China, Russia, Pakistan and other authoritarian counties in Central Asia could join their forces to try and take away Washington’s dominance.

The U.S., meanwhile, is not twiddling its thumbs either. Washington has a number of allies in Asia, including Japan, all of whom are ready to jump into the fire and die for the Americans on the battlefield.

If that happens and China, Russia and Pakistan would go to war against the U.S., Japan, the European Union and their allies, one way or another, either side would put its nuclear weapons to work.

And given the fact that Russia, China and Pakistan have about 7,620 nuclear warheads combined, the United States would lose that nuclear war even before some guy in Pentagon would open his mouth to say, ‘Look, it’s a nuc…’

Bipolar nuclear world: China, Russia and Pakistan vs. U.S. and allies

There are a number of reasons why we’re coming toward a bipolar world with Russia, China and Pakistan on one side and the United States and its allies on the other side.

First, Russia has been actively strengthening its military ties with both China and Pakistan. In fact, Russia has just received a crucial support from China on the most important global issue of our time: Syria.

But what’s even more concerning is that Russia has been strengthening its diplomatic and military ties with Pakistan, its Cold War rival. Having both China and Pakistan on their side would get Russia a serious advantage in an imminent nuclear war against the U.S.

Second, China has been very supportive of not only Russia, but also Pakistan lately. In fact, Pakistan has always been China’s traditional ally and Beijing has always protected Islamabad against its historical rival, India.

Third, Beijing, Moscow and Islamabad see the need to form the China-Russia-Pakistan triangle, because it would finally allow them to put an end to U.S. global dominance.

Presidential Election makes U.S. Weak

And the U.S. is particularly weak right now, as the country is divided over its upcoming presidential election. The Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton polls clearly indicate that the country has never been so divided before, and it makes it look weak from the outside.

And since Russian President Vladimir Putin is known for his sophisticated plans to attack enemies at the most inopportune times for them, there is a high chance Russia would seek China’s military support to strike their mutual enemy.

A few weeks back, Russia sent a contingent of its soldiers to hold Pak-Russian military drills. The move was interpreted as Putin’s excuse to send his ground forces into Pakistan to protect his ally against India.

The drills came at a time when tensions between Pakistan and India reached its peak level following an attack on the Uri military camp in India-held Kashmir.

Nuclear-powered India with or against U.S.?

India, which has nuclear weapons on its own, is actually a crucial player in the imminent bipolar world. While India has previously slammed Russia for its ever-growing ties to Pakistan, it’s still not so quick to jump into the bed with the United States.

Earlier this year, India rejected an offer from the U.S. to join naval patrols in the South-China Sea alongside Japan and Australia. Patrolling the South-China Sea alongside Japan would mean the end of India’s diplomatic relations with China, the move that India is definitely not prepared to do.

Even though India has been criticizing Russia for its military cooperation with Pakistan, New Delhi has a number of joint military projects with Russia of its own.

So India is sort of torn apart between China-Russia and the United States. But Pakistan has surely already made up its mind which bed is cozier, and it went with China and Russia.

Pakistan: ‘U.S. is NOT superpower anymore’

Last week, Mushahid Hussain Syed, the Pakistani PM’s special envoy to Kashmir, threatened to break ties with Washington and officially cozy up to Russia and China, because America is “a declining world power.”

“[The] US is no longer a world power. It is a declining power. Forget about it,” Syed said, reiterating one of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s diplomats’ recent comments, in which he said Pakistan would make a deal with China and Russia if the U.S. stays neutral on the Pak-India conflict in Kashmir.

Interestingly, China supplies Pakistan with more weapons than any other country in the world. But more importantly, Beijing is actively building nuclear reactors in Pakistan, which means China wants to strengthen its allies and prepare them for a possible war with the West.

When the U.S. and many other countries signed the NPT Treaty in 1996, neither India nor Pakistan signed it. And as tensions on the India-Pakistan border continue to grow every week, one of the sides could actually resort to nuclear weapons.

And it’s more likely that Pakistan would make its nuclear move first, because it knows it has the military support from China and Russia. In fact, Beijing has already pledged to help Pakistan in the case of any foreign aggression.

Can U.S. survive China’s alliance with Russia?

While the Russians haven’t made those pledges to Pakistan yet, it doesn’t take a Sherlock Holmes to predict that Russia would side with China in any international conflict.

China, Pakistan and India all possess ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and sea-based nuclear weapons, which means it would be interesting if India could side with China and its historical rival Pakistan after all.

India has no idea whether it can or cannot rely on receiving any sort of help from the U.S. And while the country is stronger than Pakistan in terms of its army power, Pakistan has more nuclear weaponry than India, which means A LOT in any global conflict.

And the thing is that the U.S. has no idea if India would side with them in an international conflict either. So if there will be a nuclear confrontation between the U.S. on one side, and the China-Russia-Pakistan triangle on the other side, there is a high probability that the U.S. would be the defeated side.

  1. Pakistan and India should stop this hate and unite with china and russia and fight evil and injustice. Western influence has declined and has been always bias. Look at middle east.

  2. Wouldn’t be secret ,if everyone gets to know ,would it ? :) Denial means something is definitely going behind the curtains it is always the best not to accept until something concrete comes out ….. If Russia needed Gwadar in seventies she still needs it …. just wait and watch

    Super powers,usually issue denials,when speculations and rumors are doing a round in the media to probe” what’s up ” and they do not want to let the Cat out of the bag,just yet !?

  3. those pakistani making profile of being as Russian and talking on behalf of Russia are one of the most confused and threaten friendship Russia and indie have.. so they are trying hard to create confusion among the ppl.. Russian are not fool by the way they know where there interest are.. so dont pretend to be Russian here..

  4. Well written article, though I am not in agreement fully. Indeed its very probable that Trump’s election will force many a nations to rethink their stances and re-consider political alignments; that being said, China should not be expected to undergo a major political transformation.
    An analysis of Chinese trade deals with Russia over the last 10-15 years shows a clear bias, where Russia has received the not-so-great end of the bargain. Chinese have repeatedly undermined Russia, and are themselves not very open to that level of friendliness with Russians that they will allow an alignment like the one suggested by the author.
    The Chinese culture is not very open, and generally distrustful of Russia. I believe going past that will require a major shift in China. A review of Xi Jinping’s performance over the last couple of years suggests that he possesses an innate aversion to that.
    Similarly, Russian view of Pakistan, and vice versa, is not very favorable. These soft, yet substantial obstacles will hinder this super power triumvirate.

  5. Toilat – ahahahhahahahahahahahhah …..Dude keep writing comments and don’t let anyone stop you. This is the most entertainment I have had in the last 45 minutes ….toilat

  6. India don’t want to see Russia as a super power because of America . This is tragedy , that India don’t want to see its neighbor a super power but willing to see America across the sea a super power .

  7. Even when USA was a super power, it needed Pakistan to defeat Russia. USA no more a super power now, understand the fact.

  8. What a childish and biased articles. If Russia-China-Pakistan form an alliance it is “authoritarian”. And as if US is a beacon on light. Hang on … isn’t US the same country where Blacks and Latinos are killed by police in broad day light?

  9. India has a history of putting ” BALLS IN THE MOUTH” of any powerful nation if they see their interest in it.. So they are more likely to ditch U.S in crucial times (because u.s is no more super power)

  10. It’s a great analysis of the current global situation. And the change of the world from unipolar yo multipolar.
    This Russia-China-Pakistan triangle isn’t just going to benefit and support each other just in case of a war. This triangle will do wonders for the economies of all three allies. By joining the China Pakistan Economic Corridor, Russian economy will also get an enormous boost.
    Stronger econimes and prosperity for all.

  11. There is no such term exists anymore”conventional imbalance between Pak and India with a special mention on manpower”,not the world and their commoner knows but Indian strategist does that Pak possesses the world best trained and motivated volunteer fighting force capable of defeating any army in the world and numbering in tens of million,during the top level mil meetings Indian counterparts always weeping of these volunteer fighters and Pak side always telling them to do the same as they also possesses Bajrang daal,RSS,Shiv sena and lot of others but Indian mil officers were always driven to the back seat mentioning their outfits are only the champs inside India and can only resort to battle of words or at the best banning Pak cricket team or lollywood actors but can’t go and fight Pakistani forces

  12. First of all, I would say that this is one of the mature analysis I have read since the big changes in international allegiances. Everything predicted by the author, though leading to horrible results, makes sense. On the timeline of public events that happened in the last six months, I see it clearly where the current affairs are leading to. And last but not least, let’s hope that the propaganda to sabotage CPEC doesn’t lead to a nuclear war between Pakistan and India, becaudr it will surely put a start to WW3.

  13. Absolutely Fantastic article…Ma’am. Cold war foes (Pakistan and Russia) are shaking hands now…..The pics in below thread illustrates that :)

    However, I’ll like to point one thing, which is perplexing for Pakistanis, is that whether Russia able to dwarf India’s blackmailing or not. Whether Russia will be able to balance its policies when it comes to South Asia or not. We are not sure what Russia is going to do next. BRICS summit is about to happen in India. Meeting is scheduled b/w Indian prime minister Mr. Modi and Russian president Mr. Putin. Pakistanis will likely to closely watch that. The problem here for Russia is that she is one of among biggest supplier of weaponry to India. India is threatening to throw Russia out of its weapon market if it continues bonhomie with Pakistan…Indian media is hinting that.

    Indians have signed Logistics agreement with US. They don’t have any right to shout against Russian approach towards Pakistan.
    So, interesting times ahead :) All the best to Russian bear and Pakistani Snow leopard for future friendship. Hope Russia will not give in to Indian blackmail.

    Regards
    From Pakistan

  14. Well first of all Russians should openly ask if India is with Russia and China or is it with USA and Europe because India is playing a double game with almost everyone but everyone is so innocent that they cant understand what’s actually going on ! India has already allowed US to use Indian military bases and aircraft carriers and while at the same time it wants to have good relations with China and Russia. What kind of a policy is it ? India wants to improve its relationship with Iran and at the same time it supports Israel. What kind of a policy is it ? India is purchasing Gunship helicopters, heavy transport helicopters, naval technology from USA and has recently agreed to buy 36 Rafale aircrafts from France. What kind of a policy is it? Is Russia just left for setting up nuclear reactors in India and producing small utility helicopters in India ? Is it an independent policy or a double game ! Abording a joint military drill with USA is not enough. India should decide with whom does it stand ? The regional alliance or the North Atlantic Treaty Organization ! The double game is not acceptable.

  15. What kind of school children level analysis is this? I am pretty sure that this is written by an ISI media wing person using a fake Russian name. Pakistanis are known for faking it. Russia has much better & nuanced analyst than this…

  16. What kind of school children level analysis is this? I am pretty sure that this is written by an ISI media wing person using a fake Russian name. Pakistanis are known for faking it. Russia has much better & nuanced analyst than this.
    PS: Looking at the fake facebook profile of this Polina Tikhonova makes it clear that its a Pakistani ISI hit job. Keep it up ISI Media wing.

  17. One thing i am sure about is this article is written by Pro-Indian / Indian.
    As it shows india as some helpless child which have no where to go.
