#4 China doesn't want SOKOR to be Nuke-armed, as ostensib in response to NOKOR Nukes.

Personally I'm interpreting this news as another indirect threat by the DPRK [read, CHINA] agz the USS GEORGE WASHINGTON CVN, Battle Group, + USFJ in general - iff a shooting war does break out between China + Japan oer the disputed Senkakus/Daoyus. CHINA + PLA WILL WANT TO TAKE OUT THE NEAREST USN AIRCRAFT CARRIER(S) [+ Subs].

Histoire' suggests that China likes surprise attacks, espec iff its Enemy is tech-superior - that puts the burden on the USA = Bammer Admin, USDOD, + INTEL to discover when China is ready to strike.

AGain, the catalyst or cover for a Sino-Japanese mil conflict can be the Senkakus/Doayus, but what China ultimately wants is TAIWAN - it is ready-n-willing to accept prohibitive casualties in any campaign [Airborne-led?] to take Taiwan. IN CHINA'S MIND/VIEW WIDOUT TAIWAN THERE IS NO "POST-US", "FUTURE WORLD #1", "MANIFEST DESTINY".


At least NOT in Year 2050-2100.
