Hiroshima, August, 1945

Will I get to bed tonight? As I was riffling through the dim, dark past, remembering things, I ran across this headline that just came over the wires.

This is an important story.

From Reuters:
A senior Chinese general has warned that China was ready to use nuclear weapons against the United States if Washington attacked his country over Taiwan, the Financial Times newspaper reported on Friday.

Zhu Chenghu, a major general in the People's Liberation Army who said he was expressing his own views and did not anticipate a conflict with Washington, nevertheless said China would have no option but to go nuclear in the event of an attack.

"If the Americans draw their missiles and position-guided ammunition on to the target zone on China's territory, I think we will have to respond with nuclear weapons," he told an official briefing for foreign journalists.

Zhu said the reason was the inability of China to wage a conventional war against Washington.

"If the Americans are determined to interfere ... we will be determined to respond," he said.

"We Chinese will prepare ourselves for the destruction of all of the cities east of Xian. Of course the Americans will have to be prepared that hundreds ... of cities will be destroyed by the Chinese," he added.

The newspaper observed that it was unclear what prompted the remarks, but noted that they were the most specific by a senior Chinese official in nearly a decade.

During a visit to Beijing earlier this month Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said there should be no unilateral change in the status quo over the disputed island of Taiwan.

"That means that we don't support unilateral moves toward independence by Taiwan. It also means that we are concerned about the military balance, and we'll say to China that they should do nothing militarily to provoke Taiwan," she added.
Condi is probably, after Bolton and Bush, the worst diplomat on this entire planet. She can't juggle snakes and certainly our opponents can be real rattlers. Handle with extreme care!

The Japanese today gave an oil drilling contract to a Japanese company in the area claimed by China and this is a cause for war unless the Japanese back down. And so suddenly (this article can't connect dots, it is written by the mainstream press) today the Chinese talk about nuking America! YIKES.

We are Japan's army and navy, you know. They own us. They own a lot of us. They own us in a million overt and hidden ways. They buy our government bonds. They don't buy them, our taxes will double.

So they own us. They won WWII. They are now reasserting their ownership of Asia. With us as their military forces.

Gods spare us! I have warned people a thousand times, the Chinese are willing to lose 1/2 their population! They have been through this before and before! Like the Mongol invasions. They rebuild. But we lose 1/2 our population, the main cities, we are toast, you know. Not just that, we have never really been hit by war. We can't imagine the destruction.

Of course, this is also a warning to Japan that they can't use the USA as a cat's paw to attack China. The sotto voce here is the fact that 100% of Japan will be glowing in the dark and not even cockroaches will be alive. I don't know if the demented people running our planet right now understand we always are on the brink of WWIII. This is why we have to have sane leaders who are smart and don't want war. Why we need a very strong UN and disarmament. Why we need to be nice and get others to be nice. Why launching our stupid war in Asia Minor can cause the annihilation of most Americans in the long run.

Wars are easy to start.

They never end except in a pool of blood.
