Iran and China sign 25-year cooperation agreement

Good thing trump was playing 3-dimensional chess when he backed out of the nuclear deal with Iran and increased tensions by killing their general. Because incentivising them to make agreements with the Chinese is clearly a brilliant move to bolster American power.

The article is behind a paywall... so not readable for anyone, including myself. 
Perhaps, you could post some snippets?

Else, going by the headlines only, it seems CHINA is replacing TRUMP in the media-narrative, as to why Americans love going at each others' throats (killing each other). Where is RUSSIA in this new narrative? Surprisingly gone?!

That even framed as "think-tankery"...  makes me feel quite dizzy. But perhaps, you can help out by laying down the arguments from the article on WSJ, so all may understand where your deep tankery is coming from? 

I hope it is not merely pointing fingers on an 'outside' source, again, as would be more than usual by now... (It seems more than agreeable instead, that TRUMP has been potrayed as such in the media throughout, since 2016 at least).

If otherwise, you might as well be inadvertently feeding the narrative of the GOP, that the US has been infiltrated by the CCP... which leaves me smh. 

Which pill are you recommending to swallow?

America’s best hope of hanging together is China
Without an external foe to rail against, the nation turns on itself
One of the first battles in the American civil war took place near a Missouri town that it amused fate to name Carthage. Two millennia before, the Romans sacked the original, only to turn against themselves in the ensuing peace. Metus hostilis, fear of the enemy, had kept the republic together, wrote the historian Sallust, a favourite of the US founders. Without it, discord and corruption had licence to breed.

If the US is always recruiting for a Carthage (Gore Vidal referred to its “enemy of the month club”) it is not because of an innate militarism. It is just that peace can be a psychic ordeal. Without an ethnic basis, a nation can need something outside to define itself against. The civil war happened after the US trounced the closest thing it had to a local threat in Mexico. Urban strife grew between the world wars: it was armed mobilisation, not just the New Deal, that bound ethnic Italians, Poles and Irish into a civic whole. As for the cold war, note the surge in partisanship after its end. Unanimous confirmations of Supreme Court nominees are one proxy-measure of a co-operative Washington. There has not been one since 1988.

An unchallenged US is a divided US. It follows that America’s best hope of retaining some cohesion in the coming decades is a mighty China. What is disastrous for its relative power in the world might turn out to be a godsend for its internal cohesion. Decline has its uses. (...)

More think-tankery...
Biden Is Adopting a Militaristic Approach to the Far East
Appointees from the hawkish think-tank world indicate the potential for renewed tensions with North Korea as well as a Cold War with China.
Last week, in his first appearance at the Pentagon as president, he made clear that US actions in Asia will be focused almost exclusively on deterring China and its rising military and economic power.

Likely because it's been spoon-fed for a while now. Consider yourself educated.

not overnight, but you have to start somewhere/sometime, especially with a "partner" so adversarial and wrong.

That can be a bit difficult if you're in a "War on Terror". See Guantanamo or the extrajudicial executions by drone.

You're likely going to sanction more, i.e. economic war.
