We've all heard of China's "empty cities": entire cities with no population. This is often seen as a failure of urban planning and an initiative to
create artificial growth and economic stimulus.
What if the cities are waiting for after the nuclear exchange - entire replacement cities for those cities that are destroyed by nuclear war. In the
event of a nuclear war, many Chinese cities would become irradiated.. survivors could move to the empty cities... Would NATO waste nukes on empty
cities? even if they did this would be a win for china as it would be 1 nuke not hitting a populated area.
In a speech given by a Chinese general he suggested a coming war with the US and that China could survive a nuclear war while the US could not.
I think this is likely true - China has 1.3 billion people the US has 300 million people. If 90% of people died on each side, then china would have
130 Million people while the US would only have 30 Million. Following the initial nuclear exchange, china could launch a land invasion of north
america. I doubt there would be any effective resistance from the American survivors..
Also, Russia, the team with the most nukes. If they jumped in on China's side, the US would be well and truly nuked up. SSure russia would be pretty
screwed, but its huge geographic area would give it some protection and hoep fo a future. Further; Russia and China have been unified nations for
longer than the US. They both have strong senses of national identity. The US, such a young nation, with deep divisions between north and south, may
crumble in the event of nuclear war..
Russia and China's preparations will give their populations a greater change of survival. Also their style of governance (more collective and
authoritarian) would be better suited to dealing with the aftermath of a nuclear war; that is so say, it would be easier to relocated people...
command and control is better than the market in some situations; war is one of them .
