P.S. China only had its first nuclear test in 1964, it didn't even have a delivery system in those days.
China and Russia are not new players, this is not China's first threat of nuclear war to the US or of war in general. China has had designs on those islands for a very long time.

I don’t actually use google specifically for information, except to provide further reading, or specific dates; but your statement that China and/or Russia had previously threatened the U.S. with nuclear war in 1964 and again in 2005 threw me and so I asked for links. I looked and couldn’t find that information. By saying 1964, do you mean the Cuban blockade in 62?
''And you think that's relevant to the discussion how?''
Because you keep saying:
‘'They've been threatening nukes since they'e had nukes, since before the Cold War.''
''Russa and China have been threatening nuclear war since before 1964''
Yes, China and also a number of other countries have been arguing over these islands for a long time. I didn’t say they haven’t.
China and Russia are new players against U.S. intervention because they have now started to challenge it.
Don’t be so defensive I’m not trying to catch you out and I don't do the point scoring thing.
The US and China are not new in any respect. If anyone's new, it's the US.
