In the case of this particular scenario China is the aggressor and a conclusion of war would exist if, China really tried to take those islands by
force. All things considered if they did that they would be prepared to use Nuclear weapons. As there Navy is in no real position to hold that
territory, without the use of nuclear weapons.
Strangely enough (at least for me) there is very little emphasis in this forum, in relation to the true potential of the United States, in relation to
a very real possible response. But before I continue let me again point out that this scenario for war between China and the US is highly implausible
and since this discussion began? China has taken this issue to the UN despite having no legal precedent for possessing these islands.
The United States could respond to China by literally carpet bombing the entire country with Nuclear weapons.
This then literally meaning there would be no place in the country where any living thing would not be exposed to lethal radiation. It is not hard to
understand why the US would do this. Given mobile launchers and locations that are camouflaged to look like something else but in actuality are Silos
