Nuclear war is probably unavoidable in our lifetime.

IMHO, It's ........ if american civilians have to die because of our stupid leaders. We shouldn't have to suffer for their mistakes.

I guess it wouldn't have been much of a story if the reporter had put this line at the beginning instead of the end of the article: "Gen Zhu said his views did not represent official Chinese policy and he did not anticipate war with the US."

Ya im not saying its definetly going to happen, because there have been threats in the past. But times change, and now with Bush in the office who knows if he will take a more firm stand with the china-taiwan issue.

Gotta admit though with all the technology advancements and the more stubborn humans get, its possible.

Sure it's possible, but there's a huge gap between "possible" and "probably unavoidable". Most strong countries have had nukes for years and years, but the only two ever used to inflict casualties are still the first two. I think it's safe to say that most leaders understand what using them would mean.
