"Common Sense" in foreign affairs

(2/4) Ideas I came up with in the last two days of gaming.

Currently, I'm poised to take all of China AND Japan. My units are bearing down on them, and within the next five turns, both should be eliminated. But, the two countries have now declared war on two others, one rather large civ, Russia (in this game, their northern neighbors with Tibet in the way.) , and the Aztecs (who are nowhere near them.)

Common sense says that if you're about to be defeated, provoking even more countries is not the way to survive. I don't plan to attack the Russians any time soon, but now I have to worry about them taking the last of the cities and taking away my claim of annihilation. Basically, this is all about realism.
