We have to walk a tightrope for the next 10-20 years, so we can complete our current phase of economic expansion.It's not so simple.
China has strong economic bonds with the West and needs to be mindful of any repercussions if it is seen as grossly undermining Western sanctions.
Russia is self-sufficient in terms of energy, a former superpower, and an industrialized country. They can laugh at sanctions, and take minimal damage.
China on the other hand, our resource routes are in danger of the USN. We need to fully develop our internal energy resources, which are significant (amongst the largest reserves of shale oil and gas in the world), along with our significant conventional oil/gas/coal resources, and especially renewable energy, of which our potential is enormous.
We also need to develop formidable power projection, based on naval power in particular. All this will take longer than a decade. But it is very possible to achieve, given enough time.
