Then they get nuked and things are going to escalate really really fast. Finally, everyone is going to nuke each other into oblivion. Simple as that.

Going the Russian route with silent treatment would be the answer. These kinds of "op-ed" or online opinion piece are normally part of brain programming to judge opponent's reaction what would they do if it was really the case.

The mentality behind the proprietors of these 'mini nukes' is that they can claim victimhood despite using nukes on Chinese PLA soldiers, should China retaliate against say Hawaii with nukes. Look at how the US and western media turned the assassination of Solemeini into going after Iran after they tricked Iran into shooting down that airliner.

Basically, they are hoping a disproportionate response by China will allow them to get away with nuking a Chinese installation and poisoning the area with radiation for the next 2000 years.

To OP, its called Plausible Denialability...
US war planners will likely leave themselves an 'out', same reason false flag ops (USS liberty, Gulf of Tonkin, Northwoods, 911, etc) and WMD pretexts were needed...

Who is to say they have not already done the equilavlent of tacs this year? What do you think Bierut/Lebanon port explosion was?

Ya. But how much of those deniability works against peer power with nuclear arsenal?
It is one thing to play the victim hood to get public support invading Iraq after 9/11. People keep mentioning the reference of Iran, Iraq, 9/11. None of those could ever hit back.
I am willing to see they repeat it against North Korea, let alone Russia, China.


I told this beore, US is still living in WW2 era seeking for WW2 style solution.

Given the US pentagon planners, especially the younger generation who didn't live during MAD, are more prone to using tactical nukes in wargaming, what should be the response of China if the US under someone like Trump or Pompeo authorised the use of 'small tactical nukes' on a Chinese base in the South China Sea or at sea?
The us has vindicated China suspicion that their missile defence system is aimed at her (and russia)
Therefore China must (and already doing) increase their nuke warheads to at least 1000 to ensure mad

NK isnt a threat to US hegemony, China has been cast as Central Threat of all Time
I would say they will be doing good job converting a hegemonic threat to a threat that will end it's existence.


If it really happens what has been mentioned above, i don't see any other option for China except completely de-populating US.
