Nah. Don't take these figures seriously. Some military heads are incessant in talking about destruction and war but nations don't go to war at the behest of soldiers. Politicians and administration officials make the call.
I don't think it's in the interest of anyone to have a P5 nation with solid Conventional-Nuclear-Biological-Chemical-Cyber warfare technologies and mighty comprehensive National strength with a 1.4 Billion population to go rogue. China has abstained from actively supporting Anti-western countries and entities for long.
This guy is just bluffing.
