Can China be stopped without using of nuclear weapons?
Although provocative to the desire of more humane outcome of WW3, this question would stand before any military and government that perceives China as
potential adversary in WW3. Not only the US government btw!
India has a nuclear program with purpose not only to oppose that of Pakistan, but much more to defend against it potential rival China. China on its
turn helped Pakistan and built the world's highest paved road between the two countries, thus making it possible Chinese million army to arrive at
the Gulf coast at no time.
Russia-China friendship forever? Only few decades ago the Russian non-nuclear but powerful bombs annihilated the Chinese tanks advancing on USSR
Siberian territory. Recently, Putin did 2mega drills in the Far East, one of them moving thousands of tanks to drill-attack island Sakhalin. Probably
that show of force wasn't intended only for Japanese consumption, but also for the Chinese as well. If the impossible happens, and China somehow
turns on Russia, the longest border in the world would be breached on so many places and by so many troops, that Russia has to use nukes on its own
territory to stop Chinese advance further West.
Wil USA go without a nuclear war with China? Any conflict between the Koreas, Japan, or Taiwan, would require the promised US nuclear umbrella to be
activated. If US doesn't fulfill its promises, who of the allies including those in Europe would ever believe US will protect them with nukes? The
nuclear umbrella and deterrence will remain in history. US cannot afford not to help South Korea, Japan and even Taiwan. But that help will meet the
world's biggest army in terms of manpower. The US airforce may be superior to the Chinese, still there will be great losses in case of conventional
clash. Moreover, when it comes to control territory, the US air and naval power might not be enough against the Chinese troops. Wil USA therefore
decide to use preemptive nuclear strike against the Chinese ICBMs and SLBM /submarine bases?
China went as far as to publish a map of potential targets on US soil - specifically the cities Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles, that could be
hit by the Chinese submarine based missiles. The article in English stated further that the fallout from those cities will kill many more people
eastward. Unfortunately for the Chinese, their subs cannot reach Washington and New York, therefore, the article said, ICBMs should be used. That all
- in state sponsored and tightly controlled media, in English. On another occasion, retired Chinese general said that China is ready to lose every
city East of Xian (practically everything from Beijing to Shanghai to Hong Kong) for the option to nuke 100 American cities. That statement was
carried out again by the Chinese English media. No other country ever have threatened US after the Cuban crisis. Not even Iran uses such rhetoric.
Having said all that, it seems much more humane a precise strike only on the Chinese ICBMs to pteempt any attempt of nuking US cities, that China
already warned they will be nuked. It seems USA has to choose the smaller evil in case of Asian major war in which USA will be involved according to
While the world's attention is fixed to Ukraine as the possible flashpoint of WW3, and Syria - Iran as a second region, it may turn out that China
and East Asia are the most dangerous regions on the planet. Coupled with the already uncovered attempts by the Chinese business elite to redraw the
rules of international business. In other words, to push the US and EU economies to the wall. Does it mean, the staged economic crisis after 2008 is
not so much "made in Wallstreet" rather "made in China"? Does it mean China looks for provocation, after benefiting for 20-30 years from a willing
West to provide China with everything, from manufacturing of clothes and cars to computers? The world may see the biggest treachery in history, when a
beneficent like China (almost the biggest ever) turns on its benefactor, ultimately with nukes.
