Global Times is a state-run media source. They're one step away from being an official announcement platform for the CCP. The only difference between this and an official declaration is that the CCP can officially say "Oh we never said that, that was just a journalist getting in over his head." if they are pressed on the issue. Nevermind that the CCP controls exactly what is and isn't said by the Global Times.I'm not quite sure how the media giving their opinion on what China will do is a military event, but this is definitely a scary situation. I wonder what the chances are that the US will send troops back to Taiwan.
With all due respect to everyone's personal theological beliefs on this forum, we must separate those from our situational analysis. Even if Bible prophecy is a real thing, there are just way too many different methods of it being interpreted for it to serve as a reliable analytical tool.Most of China's war experience over the decades and centuries equate to battles within, or within their own back yard. They do not have the experience of being a Global World Power militarily such as Great Britain or the United States. As a result, they most likely do not have the military tactics to compete with the centuries of experience of the British and American Empires who's empire the "sun never sets" on.
At least by bible prophecy we know China or Russia will never overtake or depose the United States and Great Britain as world powers. The real question is, how, and what will bring seeming peace between China and the US? - "While people are saying 'peace and safety,' destruction will come on them suddenly." (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
A nuclear exchange between the US and China with no other nuclear powers involved would end up far worse for China than the US, simply due to the sheer difference in number of nuclear weapons on each side. China has a few hundred, not all of which are ICBMs. Their nuclear bombers would never make it to CONUS, and their nuclear missile subs are so noisy compared to ours that they would have a hard time not being hunted down and destroyed before they could launch their payloads.Let's say there's a war. Is a ThermoNuclear war with China M.A.D.?
Will Russia take the side of the Chinese or stand on the sidelines?
I can easily find outdated information regarding a potential exchange with Russia ( most of the analysis was done when they were the USSR ).
Has any serious research been done or papers been published indicating likely targets in the event of a war?
How is their preparedness, in regards to shelters, etc to survive the potential fallout?
Forgive me if this is the wrong place for these questions.
Looks like a line is being drawn. Will China cross it? And is the US truly willing to act if it does? A fascinating game of who's bluffing who.
Directly? No. But this election will be interesting. Since everyone is waiting to see what happens, post-November will be when the cards are played.¿Es posible que el resultado de las elecciones de noviembre fuera una guerra nuclear?
DEFCON Warning System translation: Is it possible that the result of the November elections was a nuclear war?
No disrespect taken. I understand that most people will disagree with anything theological, and that is their choice. The bible is either true or it isn't. If it's true, then there will always be those who know what's going on. (Amos 3:7) I have found that situational awareness is directly tied to prophecy, and that any actual situational awareness cannot be understood without it. Back to the subject, China will not overtake the US/UK as a world power. There could be war, but it will not result in a victory for China. There will be a one world government of some kind where the US /UK does give a portion of their sovereignty up though.With all due respect to everyone's personal theological beliefs on this forum, we must separate those from our situational analysis. Even if Bible prophecy is a real thing, there are just way too many different methods of it being interpreted for it to serve as a reliable analytical tool.
Again, no disrespect intended. I hope everyone understands the point I'm trying to make.
There are no strategic targets in Mexico and Mexico has no nuclear weapons so they are not a nuclear threat. While Mexico might sufer some residual fallout from the United States. I can all but guarantee you that nobody has any of their nuclear missiles aimed at Mexico.I am very afraid. I'm from Mexico and I'm afraid they'll drop a nuclear bomb here.
