Oh, and by accumulating 20,000 warheads, China proves it's no first strike policy or does it merely want to be able to obliterate all who may strike at it after she fires the first strike.
I think it's more a case of China's saying to [its intended audience] "Don't screw with us!"
because, just like that of itrs intended audience, Chinese tolerance level too have limitations. She won't just sit back and
take the abuse indefinitely. Eventually, if she's pushed far enough, she will respond in kind.
The Chinese are not saying here that she will simply go about and nuke anyone and everyone at will and
at their leisure. What they are saying is that [if the intended audience of the message] is conniving and exploiting the situations in the
South China Sea, in the Sea of Japan, or even in the Tibet South controversy as a card to [militarily put a damper on China to restrict her from
her quest in becoming a military-equal to its intended audience], then all bets are off is what it's all about.

Aww heck Ed, you know what the result of theat battle would be...USN; many, PLA-N, hardly any, if any!
You know what the 21st century is all about, Kiwi. It's all about technology and it's all about super
smart and deadly firepower. In other words, in today's dog eat dog world, you don't make ship per ship aircraft per
aircraft missile per missile the variable in your equation: you instead put your bets on cutting edge technology [meaning a single Shi
Lang will have the sufficient cutting edge and deadly enough of a technology to take on every boat that is out there]
as means of ensuring its own survival. The Chinese is definitely not lacking in that area of specialty.
Any full fledge military confrontation between China and its intended audience is not going to remain
a conventional conflict indefinitely -- guaranteed. Reason: its intended audience have a habit of uttering threats as a
means of getting its way in these conflicts as in the case of McArthur in the 50's and as LBJ in the 60's towards China. China
thus is not about to allow itself to become the Hiroshima and Nagasaki of the 21st century -- ALONE.
If any conflict erupts in the South China Sea, my educated guess is that the Chinese
navy and its counterpart of equal will stare each other out in the high seas poised to go into action soon as orders
are given by naval command headquarters but no one in naval command will be fool enough to order their forces into action
because it have the potentials of getting out of hand and turn into a nuke exchange.
In other words, the VC's and the Pinoy's will ultimately have to be dealing with the
Chinese all on their own. I mean a joint military exercise one thing. Facing off with one another nuke
for nuke, in a real life situation, is altogether another totally different can of worms.
