Russia and China become part of strategic alliance – Indiadaily.com - Russia and China become part of strategic alliance – Putin now looks at BRICS alliance (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa)
Since you are research challenged, perhaps I can find a link for you on a statement from a Russian General.
The Russian General has stated that the U.S. government concocted 9/11 to gain support for an aggressive foreign policy and to change many political policies within the U.S. itself.
This same Russian General also expressed his wanting of a Geographic Strategic Alliance for an all out war against the U.S. and to stop the U.S. from influencing all of mankind.

China is playing it very smartly and so is Russia.
China needs oil and Russia has it, the US is a net importer that also a debtor nation on a path to its own demise, allying with the US would be stupid. There literally from their point of view is no future in a long term alliance with the US.
All three nations are enaged in and have been for quite sometime now at locking up and controlling as much of the world's remaining energy as they can. For China one of its best options is to look to Russia not the US. This is also why China is actively courting Venezuela among other places like Caspian basin countries.
China is holding US debt, enough debt that they can extort the US with it, its relationship with US is temporary, it won't last much longer. They probably know by now they won't get paid back but for now it is useful to them.
There is a much bigger risk of war between Russia and China, than between either of them and the US. You're right that China wants energy, but it has its eye on Siberia for precisely that reason. For now, China is content to trade with Russia (with terms favorable to China). But in a couple decades when China is much stronger and Russia is much weaker, China might decide that it wants Siberia for itself. The region is already becoming ethnically and linguistically Chinese.Originally Posted by elbatrop
The United States is one of the safest sovereign debts on the planet (the 7th safest as of Q4 2009). Much moreso than Russia, which defaulted on its debt just 12 years ago.Originally Posted by elbatrop

I can't. This is important.

The United States unless it very very abruptly changes its ways or the rest of the world falls apart entirely will more than likley default, it is economically screwed. It is making the same mistakes most empires do including Russia, Great Britain, and even Rome. You might wanna take a look at what quantitative easing is and really means, round two will be coming shortly. Ponzi scheme economics doesn't last very long.
