    The USA will remain the only real world power for the foreseeable future.
    And one of the main reasons for that is its submarine fleet.
    The US may be able to win a battle, especially at sea, but on land and even in the air and an overall war... nope. Reason... China 1.5 billion people, USA 320 million.

    But saying that, China has zero reason to invade Taiwan. Why? There is tons of business going both ways and it would cost the Chinese economy billions if they did so.

    By sinking the invasion fleet.

    No invasion fleet=no invasion.

    No, China would win. We are constrained by lawyers and politicians in how we would wage war. They wouldn't be. We lose.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    The USA has 5, 113 nuclear weapons and it could utterly destroy China and any other country on this planet.

    Tell the Chinese to bring it on, we've got something for them.

    I don't think so.

    I believe that the USA would make the Chinese sorry that they were ever born.

    Lets wait and see what happens. I'd like to see at least one nuclear war before I die.

    China loves to shoot its mouth off but let's face it, they havent been in a real shooting war since Korea (the big incident with Vietnam doesnt count since it didnt last long)- their troops arent battle tested so they could just cut and run for all we know.

    That last statement shows you're either trolling or have zero clue what you speak of.

    I guess really need to talk to the Japs, as they learned first hand we WILL use nukes. We are the only ones that have used them in war. The Chinese might want to bear that in mind. They also might want to bear in mind we can literally turn their entire country into a single large, glow in the dark, self heated, glass parking lot.

    I don't believe that the USA will ever get involved in a ground war with China, but there more to winning battles than numbers.
