Do you guys even understand that NO ONE SURVIVES A NUCLEAR WAR!
That's just fear mongering ... Chernobyl and Fukushima are two examples, of life thriving after radiation ... and a nuclear bomb, doesn't have any of that radiation, a leakage has ...
So, wrong again bud ...

China doesn`t have to go to war with america to knock them off their perch as a superpower, all china has to do is to stop funding america and america will collapse.
china holds enough american currency and bonds that they could bankrupt america merely by stop buying bonds and cashing in the one`s they already hold.
If china stopped funding america, america wouldnt be able to afford to maintain their military or pay for all those high tech battlefield toys they seem to love. tanks,planes, ships, etc dont run without fuel,and unless the saudis will accept I.O.U`s from the american military, the american war machine will come to a grinding halt if china stops funding america and demands repayment of it`s debts and worthless american bonds.
I think america has proven that they are no longer moral enough to be a superpower,corruption and greed drives their decision making.

You say everybody hates America, when really everybody hates their government.
You say Australia cannot be invaded when that is pure bs. We are divided and can be conquered, in ww2 darwin was bombed, mt isa was next (mineral/economic hub) and then it was down to the east coast. We are nowhere near as infallible as you say we are..

I think alliances are cowardly and should be a thing of the past.
I also dont think America should put its friends at risk. What kind of a friend are they? Not stand up guys at all. What do you do when you get into a fight? Call for your friends? Not me.

You are out of your mind if you think that China has any capability of fighting any type of WAR against the United States.
The U.S. has a Navy that wouldn't let any Chinese Ships any closer to the U.S. Mainland that halfway across the distance from China to Taiwan. The U.S. has a Super High Tech. Sub Fleet that would obliterate any Chinese Subs or Surface Ships and the U.S. Carrier Groups are very close to being impenetrable.
As far as Biological Warfare...the U.S. CDC is the most advanced facility in the world...and with U.S. ABM systems as well as the new FEL...CHINA has NO CHANCE....ZERO....on any possible attack.
You cannot even compare the two countries as even if you added Russia and even a few more...the U.S. Military would still be far in advancement.
The reality is that China has changed it's entire mindset as far as any direct confrontation with the U.S. Even the one time Hot Spot...Taiwan...is now a distant memory as the Chinese Military were invited recently to watch U.S. Military Exercises and much to the Chagrin of the Old Communist Guard...the Chinese Military Leadership that was invited to watch U.S. exercises...made the statement to the World Media that against the U.S. Military...China would have NO CHANCE.
There will be no Chinese/U.S. war as the smart thing was done...show your adversary what your capable of...this prevents wars. Split Infinity
