Who cares how many tactical nukes Beijing has? Unlike Washington they are not continually looking for fights around the globe to cluelessly stumble into.

The only nation in a perpetual state of war is...

I think russia has a bigger worry than the US. After all china only has to use a catapult to bomb russia across a shared border. Anyone really really think these 2 countries trust each other ?

Yesin warns that U.S. and Western arms specialists are dramatically underestimating China’s nuclear arsenal. Yesin estimates China has 1,600 to 1,800 nuclear warheads, vice the 250 to 300 China is believed to have ready for use. He bases his information on Russian intelligence and what he described as "robust" discussions between Russian and Chinese nuclear scientists.
----------
President Putin finds it to Russia’s advantage that President Obama has initiated the United States’‘pivot’ of focus to Asia vice Europe. Anything that helps hasten this pivot along, Putin will spare no effort to exploit. Mr. Yesin’s visit is no doubt one such effort being exploited.

----------
Along with encouraging the U.S. pivot to Asia, is another little discussed reality which Mr. Yesin alluded to; the growing mistrust and latent hostility between Russia and China. Mr. Yesin mentioned in his meetings with U.S. officials that China has stationed DF-11 & DF-15 tactical missiles (Chinese versions of the Russian Scud A and Scud B) and the DF-21 ballistic missiles on the Russian border. These missile types are offensive weapons which would be used in the opening salvos of a military ground campaign.

Okay, if China attacks Russia, we will fight China. Not to protect Russia, of course, but we owe China a lot of money so for that alone....

Nuclear weapons are why the cold war never led to direct confrontation between the Warsaw Pact and HATO. Are you now in favor of global wars? I guess given your support for empires like the EU that is unsurprising.

The USA invades liberal democratic states all the time... but when they have nukes...
