    Default China ‘convinced it needs to hit US with Pearl Harbor-style surprise attack’

    CHINA is convinced it now needs to hit America "hard and early " in a surprise Pearl Harbor-style attack to invade Taiwan, a leading expert has warned.

    Oriana Skylar Mastro, a fellow at Stanford University, told The Sun Online how Beijing increasingly views an invasion of the island as inseparable from a war with the US.

    I find this incredibly stupid on China's part if true. They're willing to risk nuclear annihilation of the world over Taiwan?

    That makes no sense.

    And I will echo and channel my inner Dave’s Dreidel, china is playing a long game. They are not gonna risk a short term gain to mess with us. They do not have the capabilities to do what is being suggested. Our missile defense systems are too strong. And they also know that is mutually assured distraction. They could launch nukes and a sub could level their mainland in 15 minutes. They know it. We know it.

    They’re not that stupid.

    Chris 4 of our subs could level the entire earth in about a half hour. Everyone knows it. 16 Subs carry SLBM that can deploy16 MIRV warheads each. I really wouldn’t be too worried. Not to mention what’s in North Dakota and Wyoming with icbms that cannot be taken out. Plus, we have WAY more warheads than they do. And more powerful ones.

    China has aspirations of world domination; the only impediment to attaining this reality is the US.

    They also have too many mouths to feed; therefore, the collateral damage that would ensue can be absorbed.

    Not with Biden in the White House. No. He has no nuts. And honestly, I wouldn’t care what happens to them. Really not on my radar. Ukraine is to a point. Not by much though.

    One billion, five hundred million, people live in China.

    What if their plan is to knock the US out, and colonize other lands?

    China mainland is deeply polluted; they could walk away from parts of it, unscathed.

    "NDL, that proposal is ridiculously far fetched"

    Look at the pattern that our forefathers laid, when they succeeded from England.

    Yes and you apparently don’t know the effects of nuclear fallout from a bomb. 2 headed kids and a high miscarriage rate.

    Sounds like a keen way to repopulate the earth.
