    That is a generic article about possible conflicts leading to nuclear war and nothing about a specific current threat...


    America: Obama Threatens China with Nuclear Weapons. Militarization of Asia-Pacific | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization
    ‘A Monday released statement recklessly said Washington intends using nuclear and conventional weapons to defend Japan if necessary.
    “Central to (its Asia policy) is the ironclad US commitment to the defense of Japan, through the full range of US military capabilities, including nuclear and conventional,” it said.’
    I don't trust this link in the slightest: CRG maintains websites in several languages, including the English-language GlobalResearch.ca, which are critical of United States foreign policy and NATO as well as the official explanation of the September 11 attacks in 2001 and the war on terror. In a January 2012 article, he characterized the Free Syrian Army as "a de facto paramilitary creation of NATO."[9] Syrian president Bashar al-Assad e-mailed his father-in-law, Fawaz Akhras, to inquire how true Chossudovsky's claims were.[10] Chossudovsky claimed that deaths of protesters during the Euromaidan demonstrations in Ukraine were "triggered by Neo-Nazi elements", used "to break the legitimacy of a duly elected government."[11] He is a favoured commentator at Russia Today.[12] His opinion is regularly asked for by the Iranian government owned Press TV.[13] Chossudovsky was interviewed in the documentary film The Weight of Chains, which the Centre for Research on Globalisation amongst others sponsored.[14]

    Yeah... good for them. The USA is a very hypocritical and bullying nation. No valid nuke threats though...

    A tabloid?

    Got anything from FOX? MSNBC? The Post or LA Times? BBC?

    Anything "credible"?

    Do you, like me, get a feeling of a possible big catastrophe coming in the not too distant future?

    An American response
    China cautions U.S. Navy on patrols in South China Sea - CNNPolitics.com
    ‘Washington (CNN)—The U.S. is considering deploying aircraft and ships to contest Chinese claims to disputed islands in the South China Sea, U.S. officials said Wednesday.
    Options are on the table to fly surveillance aircraft and sail Navy ships nearby in a move that puts the U.S. directly into a contentious territorial contest in East Asia, in which, until now, the U.S. has avoided overtly taking sides.’


    China replies
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-0...inese-state-ne
    'A war between the United States and China is “inevitable” unless Washington stops demanding Beijing halt its construction projects in the South China Sea, a Chinese state-owned newspaper warns.
    “If the United States’ bottom line is that China has to halt its activities, then a US-China war is inevitable in the South China Sea,” The Global Times, an influential newspaper owned by the ruling Communist Party’s official newspaper the People’s Daily, said in an editorial Monday.'


    Will America back down? Possibly the idea will be shelved, or it might end in a stalemate. America will sail through the South China seas as it’s entitled to do but keeping well away from the islands and stick it’s tongue out and China will boast it didn’t intervene because it didn’t come near the islands. Face saved on both sides and everyone goes home happy.
    The alternative is that America does intrude on the islands in which case China will react. The loss of face, which are often grounds for suicide in Asia, will force them to do so.

    An alternative view
    http://rt.com/news/257841-russia-china-us-hegemony/
    "The White House is determined to block the rise of the key nuclear-armed nations, Russia and China, neither of whom will join the "world’s acceptance of Washington’s hegemony," says head of the Institute for Political Economy, Paul Craig Roberts.
    Dr Roberts believes that neither Russia, nor China will meanwhile accept the so-called "vassalage status accepted by the UK, Germany, France and the rest of Europe, Canada, Japan and Australia." According to the political analyst, the "price of world peace is the world’s acceptance of Washington’s hegemony."


    I think what America increasingly has to accept is that there are two new kids on the block called Russia and China and both have threatened to use nuclear weapons. China is not in opposition to a U.S. military presence in places like Japan or South Korea, but like Putin with the Ukraine and now China with the islands dispute, both are increasingly drawing red lines of their own in their own backyards.
    ahhh "news"... what will they not blow out of proportion for ratings?

    I wouldn't demean news agencies by calling his sources "news".

    the country to fear is south korea,as it does not seem to fear the effects of the mad doctrine,and it is a starving nation with little to lose if their gamble fails.
    I agree - and I'm assuming you meant North Korea, not the South, as the country to fear.

    If 'America, with Japan and other allies, stand up to China in the South China seas' China will appeal to call its allies for help too and I think all of BRICS will support China nearly in all possible conflicts with the pro-western world.

    I'm sorry but you simply have no clue what you're talking about. You do know that India (one of the main so-called BRICS) is China's direct rival in military-strategic terms?

    No, I don't feel it or I believe there won't be any serious consequences in the present world foreign affairs - foreign politics is just a chess game and an endless one really so surely all participants will do their moves at in its turn but I don't think this game will result in a global war really.

    Anyone who thinks that China is thinking of going to war with the USA is out of touch with reality.
