Just give em Taiwan. That little rock is gonna start WW3. I read somewhere that China has more people in thier military that we have citizens. I dont worry about to many things, but China makes me nervous.

Here is part of the General's quote, from the interview in question:
“If the Americans draw their missiles and position-guided ammunition on to the target zone on China's territory, I think we will have to respond with nuclear weapons,” said General Zhu Chenghu.
Let's discuss what is meant here. Does he mean JDAM bombs? I don't think that's what he means. The Party will not retaliate with nukes no matter what conventional weapons are used. That is, unless they mean to actually engage in city-for-city nuclear war, which could actually be plausible. Trading Los Angeles for Bejing, for example.
Let's all learn Chinese before running too far with this. I think what he means to say is, "If the US uses their guided munitions to deliver what may be a nuclear payload, China would have to respond with nuclear weapons also". I am giving him the benefit of the doubt because as it is worded, we can't really say for sure what he means.
There is NO WAY anyone would launch a nuclear strike.
THE SATELLIGHTS WILL TAKE THEM OUT BEFORE THEY EVEN GET TO AMERICAN SOIL.

In other words if nuclear exchange occurs get ready for a mad max road warrior style world. Maybe the nuclear effects would turn the world into waterworld most likely thoiugh we would be reverted to savagery indeed.
The strong would survive and the weak would perish.
