Yeah but are the Americans brave enough to fight China? Millions of Americans will die if they attempt to land on beachhead.
This argument have geopolitical answer rather than technical, USN have a full capability to defend itself in South china sea, In some cases they ahead of PLAN in South China sea

And you're silly to think China will launch nukes in the first place , ever heard of the the term Mutually Assured Destruction ?
Yes of course but the nuclear aspect was a part subject of the discussion and the geographic location of a possible conflict (God forbid) makes it a credible and serious question. To say Cairo is beyond belief stupid!

US is superpower and probably can win a war against China but the question is at what cost? The costs in Iraq and Afghanistan are thousands of Us soldiers and close to $4 trillion and it would be more than that if a direct war ensues between China and US.

US still has not fought directly with Russia and instead used sanctions and proxies, it will be the same against China. Any war with China will not be an isolated event in south China seas but it would devour major countries into the conflict killing millions and destroying regions.

could it? US fought Imperial Japan in 1942. At the time, Imperial Japan had 1/5 US GDP, 1/4 US population and their technology far behind (no shipborne computers connected to their guns and didn't even have radar until a literally days before US entered the war).

It took 3 years of total war AND dropping abo.mbs AND Japan fighting a 2 front war AND Japan being threatened with a 3rd front (Russia, Kurils) to get Japan to surrender

China has roughly equal GDP (80% by nominal, 150% by PPP), 4x population, roughly equal tech. So you tell me what this means.

The reason Japan surrendered was the fear for Russia. Americans love to think it was the 2 atomic bombs that made Japan surrender but it wasn't. The 2 Atomic bombs didn't made much of a difference after it was already being carpet bombed and even then Japan refused to surrender. After Soviets crushed the Nazi, they were going for Japan and that was the major reason for making a deal with US.

I used the word "probably" for a reason.

So America will risk Millions of American's lives and turn their land into Radio Active wasteland for a Tiny Small Island called Taiwan? Wow, that's dumb, and can't believe America become Superpower with such Dumb idiots making such decisions, And what if the War turns into a full-scale Nuclear War? China Launches every nuke it has on the US mainland, And America does the same and over the years the Debri will block the Sun, cause a mini ice age, results in femine and mass extinction, Wheather Patterns will make sure that Bordering Countries such as Mexico, Canada and China side India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Russia will get Radioactive particles giving Cancer to millions more, resulting Millions more dying? All because of one Tiny Island of Taiwan? DA FUQ is wrong with America?

Failure of nuclear weapons states to liquidate their nuclear stockpiles and pursue complete disarmament automatically give the non-nuclear weapons states the rights to pursue nuclear weapons, Ayatollahs should start building the bomb, Allahu akbar.
