Besides

In the last few months everyone has seen how a highly leveraged society like America melts like snow in the sun when there is a setback.

ANY nuke exploding over the continent will de-leverage like there is no tomorrow.  ONE nuke over Houston wipes out 70% of the oil import and refining and transport capacity of America.  Think about that.  Think about how "survivable"  a modern American society with 70% less oil, for even just a year.  Now compare that to if that happens to China.   

I can assure you that all those factors have gone into the calculus.  Yes, America has enough nukes to kill ALL human beings on earth about 100 times over.  So what?  It is reality today, military, political or otherwise, that it is a consensus that America as we know it WILL BE DESTROYED and at least 50% of Americans will DIE if there is WW III with China.  That is what is keeping the peace in the world.  

So ye armchair generals (sillies) can go on wet dreaming.

White,

First, there is no member of this BBS who respects China's military more than Kiwi does. Everyone else here is so blindingly ignorant of China's capabilities that they are guilty of nothing more than swooning adoration.

The reality of war with the US for China over T.ai.wan is that the US must merely deny China access to the island.This is, in fact, a relatively easy task. There will be no ground war, there will be relatively few US soldiers exposed to Chinese forces. The US anti-missile systems are adequate to eliminate China's missile arsenal, requiring China to rely on brute force tactics to sink any major craft, drastically reducing stockpiles. Moreover, China relies on imports of raw materials and food. The US can and will deny these things to China by blocking sea lanes, driving up prices in China and exposing it to the real possibility of widespread hunger within one week. In addition, the US has the ability to conduct complete littoral operations, allowing it to eliminate Chinese naval command and even placing Beijing in the line of fire. China's submarines will prove completely ineffective: they will be destroyed in short order by combined submarine, air and surface ship operations. The remainder will be without an adequate ability to pursue any objective, having lost the ability to communicate with Beijing without opening them to immediate attack.

The United States can expect complete air superiority within the first week of its entry into the conflict, by the middle of the second at a maximum. Once air superiority is achieved, the continued existence of any structure in China is purely at the will of the US Air Force. If China decided to pursue sustained operations (though I don't see how it could since, it will be looking at low levels of food by this point), the US can exacerbate all internal issues by severing transportation and communications links.

As to Tong, his nuclear speculations are simply not worthy of response.

that's really threatening.....

well, but if the Amerikan REgime starts to confront CHINESE FORCES directly, it could escalate into a nuclear war exchange.
so, don't even think about it....

it might start with blockage by aircraft carrier battle units....
then china might use nukes to blow out the battle groups....
usa then uses tactical nuclear weapons at sea too, or wipes out the chinese navy...
leaving China no choice but  to do the inevitable, nuke the major usa cities, wiping out Amerikan capability...

and Canada/Mexico invade and make United States a protectorate state!
