Sleep well.
The Russians maybe---I doubt they have enough weapons anymore to go 2 to 1 in a counter force strike---and the Soviets certainly, but AIUI, the Chinese deterrent is counter value in nature. Though I suspect public knowledge of their deterrent pales in comparison with its actual magnitude. If it's countervalue though, I guess it's worse for most of the people here at the SDMB.

I expect Chinese missiles to fly before I expect Russian ones to, not that I think the Russians are friendly. We'll see. Made it 74 years so far...
