I will start with a question - what are US contingency plans in case of Pakistan breaking down completely, aside from obvious nuke grab. State building on the scale inomparable to anything before? Sanitary cordon together with India, and ironically, Iran?
Second thing that springs to my mind is, how US can compete militarily with China if it is being overtaken economically? And how can this be remedied?

China buys up our debt.  We crash.  China left holding (?)

India?  Is India in the room?  What hath India to say about all this?

China still has manufacturing power, educated workforce that knows math and physics instead of gender studies, and other markets to export to... US cant buy oil anymore with wothless dolars.
India is not aggressive on China, so China is left unchecked - oh and US has a crumbling Pakistan, mad nuclear NK, nuclear by then Iran, and who knows what else by 2020s...
