I’m a subscriber to the theories of prominent KGB defector Anatoly Golitsyn.
My hero, former CIA counter-intelligence director James Angleton identified Golitsyn as “The most valuable defector ever to reach the West”
Writing in the 1980s Golitsyn correctly predicted the fall of the Berlin Wall, the “abandonment” of communism in Russia and the extensive modification of communism in China.
According to Golitsyn, this was all worked out in the late 1950s as part of a long term “scissors strategy”. China one blade, Russia the other.
Once the West was weak enough, China and Russia would openly re-unite to smash the US with “One Closed Fist”.
