WyrdeOne, China even now cant grow enough food domestically to feed its people, you think after a full scale nuclear war has contaminated its agricultural and industrial sector they will be able to start indoor farms as if nothing happened?
What about the majority of Chinas population that live in rural undeveloped areas? How are they going to filter the air, water, and food?
Lets be realistic here
A few people will survive, yes, but not in any significant majority to make a difference, the country would be destroyed and in ruins.
Then US retaliates with nuclear bombs. So what? Like Someone else mentioned, they coudln't kill nearly enough with even perfect strikes.
Okay their land is somewhat radioactive now.
So lets take america by force from the already weakened people and soldiers ( soldiers which would also be targetted by the virus ), with our huge army.
Millions are a few? Hundreds of millions even? The US can't invade China, China can't invade the US. The US can't obliterate China's people with nukes, vice versa. What do two giants do when they realize the predicament they're in? They join up and crush little people for fun and profit.

As for the chinese defence ministers comments on a biological weapom that will not harm "yellow people" I find this very niave and disturbing.Would it really be possible to make a bio weapon that discriminates against colour of skin (pygment). I doubt it.
And the Chinese Minister quoted was fired a while back, shortly after he made that speech.

Lots of USA and China, What the hell you think Europe would do if China attacked USA derr Europe would nuke China too and dont forget submarines that carry nukes that would surface months later and fire their nukes even some could wait years maybe lobbing of a random nuke at times just to make thing complicated for survivors.

Well then...why is China removing all military personnel from cook, mechanic, and clerical positions? So that they can be moved to "fighting" positions. I'll try to dredge up a link to the article...

You may have misunderstood. Their military personnel that handle the jobs of cook, mechanic, and secretary within the military will be reassigned to "combat" jobs bolstering their already formidable conventional forces.

Again, What is it with people thinking that just because the U.S. has more nukes than China, then the U.S. is invincible. If the U.S. does use nukes as you say, China would retalliate with their own nuclear arsenal of roughly 200 nukes. This would obliterate the U.S. as well...
I've been hearing so much bs about how people say "oh we'll just nuke China and that will be the end of the story"... Jesus christ, wake up will ya?
If the US fired their entire stock of nuclear weapons and each hit their targets with perfect accuracy it still wont kill anywhere near 1.3 billion Chinese. If you do not know where to look for the information that suggests as much i can help with that.
