China is flexing its muscles in the China Sea, building military bases on various islands. It is entering trade and political agreements with nations in Asia and Africa to create a political alliance similar to what NATO is.

Do you want nuclear war with North Korea and China?It's easy to think we can beat North Korea in a conventional war because of our advanced military. But such a war brings big problems:1. North Korea has a few small nukes, but China has thousands of them. China has made clear since the 1950s war...
