Mexico will be PISSED and ensure all Chinese forces in Mexico are not a problem. It's hilarious you think a small force in Mexico will conquer mainland US. Hilarious.
Found this funny. I don't know how many Chinese troops are down in Mexico but unless it's a ton of them it's doubtful they'll even make it as far north as Austin.
I live in Wichita Falls Texas, northern east side of the state.
Texas is the last state the Chinese want to invade, at least most folks carry, many have at least one AR-15 . At least 1 in 6 is prior military, Texas has the most military personel of any state, the biggest military post on earth, and the regular folks love little more than a reason to prove Texas is not the place to " take a piss" as the Brits would put it.
I would love to see the reaction to a " Chinese" invasion.
The Chinese would only make this mistake once, as Texas unleashed the equivalent of " Chuck Norris" on them, and they regretted their mistake for at least 100 generations into the future.
WASHINGTON -- India on Friday announced it would equip a future long-range ballistic missile to accommodate multiple nuclear warheads, but one analyst said the plan is unlikely to prompt a significant response from probable target China. India has been preparing its developmental Agni 5 ballistic missile to carry multiple warheads, but the Agni 6 is expected to have a longer range. A Friday report by Zee News carried anonymous assertions that the Agni 6 has an intended flight distance of roughly 5,000 to 6,200 miles, numbers that could significantly exceed the range of its predecessor in the Agni line. "Agni 5 is major strategic defense weapon. Now we want to make Agni 6 which would be a force multiplier," Defense Research and Development Organization head V.K. Saraswat said in comments reported by the Press Trust of India.
Just another round of chess...
Two super powers puffing their chests....
Oil down there?

As someone who is from Wichita Falls born and raised, I concur with this statement 100%. Unfortunately, Chinese would probably just drive down Kemp st, get to the end and ask them selves why they even bothered. Leaving before a single shot was fired. That's assuming they even made it that far north. lol
What If China Did Invade Pag-asa Island?
How plausible is the Qianzhan‘s scenario?
China could easily achieve strategic surprise and seize Pag-asa Island. China could disguise an invasion force as a flotilla engaged in routine naval exercises in the South China Sea.
A similar flotilla could set sail ostensibly to undertake normal combat training exercises. It could achieve strategic surprise by veering off suddenly and invading Pag-asa. The Philippines would have little or no warning time to prepare to its defense. The island would probably be taken in a few hours or less.
This scenario assumes that U.S. intelligence and its associated national technical means failed to detect signs of China’s preparations in advance, thus providing no warning time to take action to deter China.
China’s seizure of Pag-asa Island would be an act of war. Currently, the Armed Forces of the Philippines would be unable to mount any meaningful response.
The Philippines would immediately seek consultations with the United States under their Mutual Defense Treaty to work out a response.
The political fallout from seizing Pag-asa would be a huge set back for Chinese diplomacy. ASEAN would likely adopt an uncompromising political position and demand the immediate withdrawal of Chinese forces. ASEAN would receive political backing from the international community. Chinese aggression could even be raised at the United Nation,; but China would veto any discussion by the Security Council.
China’s actions in seizing Pag-asa Island would set off a race by claimant states to beef up the defense of their islands.
In addition to the first two Zubr-class landing craft from the Ukrainian Feodosia Shipbuilding Company at a price of US$315 million received by the People's Liberation Army Navy last May, the contract also allows two other vessels to be built in China. The landing craft can transport three medium tanks, 10 armored personnel carriers or a landing force of 500 troops. It is the largest hovercraft ever built. Can China reclaim Diaoyutai with Zubr-class landing craft?
WASHINGTON – The United States must not tolerate China’s use of military coercion in pursuit of its territorial claims in the seas of East Asia, lawmakers said at a hearing Tuesday, where experts warned that Beijing’s assertiveness is unnerving its neighbors and challenges American security interests.
Separately, the Philippine envoy to Washington complained about China’s “aggression” and urged Vietnam, another claimant state in the South China Sea, to follow the Philippines in mounting an international legal challenge to Beijing’s expansive claims.
House lawmakers overseeing U.S. policy toward Asia and America’s use of sea power held a joint hearing to consider Washington’s response, amid worries that U.S. may be drawn into a crisis or conflict over a territorial dispute involving China because the U.S. has bilateral defense treaties with Japan and the Philippines.
The Philippines has antagonized Beijing by bringing a case challenging China’s claim to virtually all of the South China Sea to a U.N. arbitration tribunal. Cuisia called it a “legitimate and friendly” way to resolve a dispute, and when asked, supported the idea of Vietnam taking the same approach.
China is refusing to participate in the arbitration.
U.S. lawmakers urge tough stance on China sea claims

Not exactly. Wile developing war scenarios, I want to leave the door to peace open. If China is so big and so good, as let say Western Democracies, it may want to do something for its poor neighbors. As USA did for West Europe after WW2, and to a certain degree US+EU for Central and Eastern Europe after 1989. China could take such a mission if it wants to expand its influence, not borders. If t wants to find where to invest its billions. Not necessarily in Asia though.
You see, they now have the superfast train encircling that country that didn't exist a decade ago. They have the best hi ways in Asia comparable to those in EU and USA, the most massive skyscrapers in each big city, they buy 100 Boeings as a gift to US economy. They could certainly do better deals for their much poorer neighbors. They could offer development projects. If they want to extend influence in SE Asia and also Pakistan, Africa,.... Not only to buy and tap oil resources. Hope now I make it more understandable the way of peace for China. If it wants it. If it prefers integration in the world with a leading peaceful role If the current world means anything for China. It hopes to rule the next world after cataclysm ww3 or other,but there is no guarantee it will be the winner.
