You need to do some serious research Evan.
Mutually Assured Destruction as a deturrant no longer exists.
Space-based Weapondry (which China is working very hard on) is designed to knock out Satellites. These Satellites, if knocked out, render the military
blind. ICBMs don't get launched for retalitory strikes without Satellites.
Also, one Nuclear weapon detinated 300 miles above in US airspace results in an Electromagnetic Shockwave that would fry all electronics from Coast to
Before 2000, many countries did not have ICBMs that reached the US, now they do, thanks in larger part to Democrats (Bill Clinton). The whole dam
world is becoming armed to the Teeth. With all these ICBMs (new ones now by China and Russia), is just a matter of time before they start to fly and
the shyte hits the fan.
NK now has a three-stage ICBM capable of reaching the US. These can be sold to Terrorists (and probably have) for use with Mobile Launchers.
Terrorists are hard to pinpoint to a country, they are faceless.
Also, you should know, that China is the leading big spender on military in terms of GDP. China spends 30% of its total income on the military. The US
is less than that for the US GDP towards the military.
The US is a Trillion$ economy, China is now just recently also a Trillion$ economy, spending nearly 200 Billion$ per year on the military developement
China only reports it is spending 60 Billion$ per year on the military, but this is grossly underreported (as cited by the Pentagon as well) and that
China is spending 3 times that. The reason for under-reporting is to not draw attention to the massive military build-up. China also does not want the
US further arming Taiwan.
