This isn't 1990. Russia's core military is very very very strong. China has also moved assets into the region to counter us.
Isn't China's active military larger than the US population?

Well, not really, but China has about 3 million combine active and reserve, Russia has about the same (but reversed as far as active and reserve) and the US has about 2.5 million.

The US against a combined Russian and Chinese military would not fare well, I'm afraid.
