Yes the capability for rapid deployment and heavy airlift have a lot more merit than aircraft carriers that's for sure.

Technology exchange and supply of decent defences - one of the biggest obstacles is the CIA sponsored terrorism and destabilisation of countries we could list as friends. (traditional friends)

A solid relationship with Russia is vital - more trust is needed there though. Russia can be a fair weather friend unfortunately - a good friend but the bond needs to be more concrete.

As two nations who have always been regarded as thorns in the side of the Zionist plan for world domination China and Russia must stick together - a real case of united we stand and divided we fall.
Man created god before god created man and the world has been in turmoil ever since. Dots freak some people out - so they join them with lines that aren't really there.

the stupidity of this OP...

You know, the confucian ethics and the pacificist approach to internationa affairs are what's ruining CHN. Because of these ideas, CHN will always be a prey animal, always destined to be "killed and eaten", never to eat anyone else. Why dont you think outside of the box for once, and change. In order for CHN to be truly modern, it needs to change, and that means learning to eat MEAT...like the US and Japan!!!!

If you only know how to "eat vegetables", you can be a strong ox now. But one day, you will be old, and all the carnivores will devour you once again, like CHN in 1900. How nice to be able to have fangs, and keep these meat-eaters at bay!!!!!

Care to elaborate on why efficiently delivered and unstoppable nukes are not "fangs"? If you can do a good job of that I'd refrain from thinking of you as a dumb fcuk.



You are right - it is the big fangs that hold off the challenges against the Alpha d-o-g - we have seen that in the stand off between the "super powers" over the past 60 years. But we are seeing their Achilles heel - somethign their massive nuclear arsenals cannot defend them against.

Their destruction is coming from within not from outside. Just as those same super powers have worked tirelessly to destroy others from within using insurrection and destabilisation and regime change - the very tool is being employed against them.

To use their massive arsenal of nuclear weapons means inevitable self destruction - the planet shrouded in a nuclear blanket of radiation that will take thousands of years to dissipate. The tests that were carried out with nukes showed the superpowers that while the weapon was powerfull and would be seen as the ultimate deterrent - it was in fact the "final solution" - using it would mean the end of life as we know it.

It is interesting to read the complete files compiled during the first stages of testing - where the detonation was just above ground level - the message from that sent them to testing high in the atmosphere - when they discovered the potential problems there they were driven to deep underground testing. The only result of all that testing was they learned that they could not use the arsenal for attack - and if they did use it for defense they would destroy themselves into the bargain.

What is the good of such a weapon if all it leaves behind is a totally unusable moonscape?

This is why the superpowers forged on with developing ever more powerfull convention weapons which have really reached the stage of being weapons of mass destruction - war heads today tiny compared to those of 20 years ago yet 100 times more powerful without being nuclear - explosives with "bang rates" 100 times faster than the stuff from 20 years ago - have become the real fangs of the superpowers today - the nuclear weapons still remain as the "final solution" and will remain as the ever present threat that hegemons hold over the heads of nations - but totally useless against the tactics of small stateless enemies capable of ripping into the soft underbelly of the giant toothless tigers.

In Chinas position a stock of unstoppable nukes that would keep the forces of an aggressor beyond tactical range make a lot of sense - make any attempted attack super costly and it most likely will not eventuate.

As it stands today - imagine the hyperthetical scenario of a concerted attack on a broad scale front - from the Western borders across the Southern border and right up the Eastern edge - the attack mounted not just by the US but by a host of countries allied to the US - hundreds of thousands of powerfull missiles striking the fixed defences of China from multiple directions - a massive pounding that destroys airfields and SAM sites - China retaliates with ICBMs against the US mainland - US missile defense shield and AEGIS screen ship stop most but not all of the counter strike - but those that get through do not destroy the war machine that is attacking the motherland - valliantly the PLAAF PLAN PLA fight back but their main defences have been decimated and still the enemies have thousands of cruise missiles which they continue to launch in surgical strikes - then the aggressors begin to take complete control of the skies - ground forces attack on all fronts - China can only survive by launching close range nukes to take out as many of the invaders as possible - but doing this means killing hundreds of millions of Chinese - what do they do?

A horrible scenario - a nightmare and no amount of bravado could counter such a move.

Yet this is exactly what the US is doing and has done - massive military pressence and massive allied support in all the regions I have highlighted. They are setting up the stage for something and I do not think they intend to invite the Chinese to a Thanks Giving dinner party.

I hope I am wrong - but the hypothetical scenario is merely to look at the potential of nuclear weapons in a possible scenario.
