The same way they saw Germany as a weapon against the USSR?

My point is that they will not be ABLE to make most weapons - saturation bombing will destroy all of their industrial complex. Example - no metal, no guns. No gunpowder, no bullets. BTW - don't call me a moron - I obviously know more then you do.
China 2nd largest economy
Oops! Your bad!
See the link here Nuff Said
Again - YOUR BAD. The link you provided said that China will attempt to become the worlds 2nd largest economy. Well, we all know how ambitious Chicomm's are - put it this way, when they are even close to the US (as in 2/3 the as rich) we'll talk. Also - I'd like to see how Russia will over take the US AND China.... Again, I refer you to my former post.
[Specifically, Exports to the US: $31136800000, Imports from the US: 6466400000 YOUR BAD AGAIN!
No - Again, your bad! This only shows a relience on the US by China. You don't get it do you? It's basic suply and demand. If China stopped trading to the US, we would say ok - who wants our money. There would be 100 countries competing to take there place - meanwhile, China loses all that buisness. Go learn economics.
There is a treaty that says only; USA, Russia, France, UK, and China are ALLOWED nuclear weapons. There is no treaty allowing Israel, India, etc nuclear weapons.
OK, so these countries agreed to that deal - SO WHAT! Any one can make nukes if they want them - PERIOD!
Hmm Have you not heard of home-made weapons? E.g. Fertilizer bombs, home-made pipe guns, etc.. The age of the machine was only fairly recent, guns and gunpowder were in production wayyy before machines came about. Heck, watch Matrix 3.
OK, tell ya what - you wunna take bets on who will win? You can have 10 guys for every one of mine, but my guys get the US arsenal - your boys get "home made pipe guns." My guys get M16A2's, Ma Duce, grenade launchers, kevlar body armor, APCs, M1A2 MBTs, and Apache longbows - lets see who wins.
Gee, and they said there were WMDs in Iraq. And that they'd get Osama Bin Laden
There very well may be WMDs in Iraq - the country is the size of california and they could either be 10 feet underground or destroyed before we went in. I could hide them in that country. As for OBL, he will be caught eventually.
