China and Russia are still old school and will build up and act out accordingly because there is no way we will counter.

Pure conjecture based only on fear and paranoia. Russia has had to scale back their military too. They could afford theirs even less than we can afford ours.

I think it safe to say neither is going to invade us anytime soon.

China bears watching, to be sure. But I'm not too worried about them either. We're one of their best customers. They hurt us and their economy suffers.
