Rivalries and Ambition can be forgotten for the sake of survival, it's human nature.

Was it that Sun Quan wanted Liu Bei to invade the west, forming the 3k because he knew that was the only chance of sucess?

Liu Bei, although he was a wanderer had been around and his fame far exceeded that of Sun Quan and lately he had been gathering support in Jing. Of those in Jing that did not favour the surrender, Liu Bei is their natural leader.
