    Easy to calculate, the breeding ratio of light water pressurised reactors is around 0.6-0.8, so each TWyear electrical output will make around 600-800kg Pu.

    Of course later on the reactor will burn that as well, but this can give a magnitude estimate about the amount of available commercial grade Pu stockpile.

    Most countries will say no to the US because they don't want to become a legitimate target for nukes for someone like loose cannon Trump who is happily an antagonist to allies. They're smaller than China therefore it won't take many nukes to knock them out for hundreds of years. It's not just China. Do they want Russian nukes targeted on them as well? They always think China will be starting the war and they believe China's no first nuke use is a lie. That only means China will knock them all out in the first round having little warning before it... and the US suffers the least.

    No just not worth the band width to debate how ridiculous and meaningless your post is.

    Whatever. You did spend the time to deflect and distract. but whatever.

    Nonetheless, a constitutional amendment may not necessary depending on how the government wish to conveniently interpret the IRBM deployment. Will just have to wait and see when time comes how subservient you are to US.

    I doubt they have need to manufacture plutonium any time soon, and if they did it would a foreign policy statement not an practial move.

    Jeffrey Lewis calculated years ago that China has currently enough for roughly 900 warheads, so at least 500 new warheads in practical terms, but how much of that goes to land based missiles vs SLBMs.
