China, Russia and the united States share impending, largely self-imposed economic and probably social destabilization from the culmination of opportunistic government policies. Foreign wars are a traditional distraction for such circumstances. However, as the Russians are discovering in Ukraine, taking a marginal economy to war is a gamble.
