South China Sea: US-China War To Go Nuclear, Out Of Hand And Catastrophic

The world needs to brace itself, as tensions in the European region are not the only thing that is threatening world peace. According to experts, a war between China and the United States could be inevitable, with many believing the conflict could start with Beijing’s attempts to reclaim the Scarborough Shoal. Will the world plunge into chaos?

US-China War to Go Nuclear

The South China Sea has been a highly disputed region for some time now, and it appears that the tensions will not ease up anytime soon. Beijing is expected to launch an aggressive campaign to reclaim the Scarborough Shoal, a key disputed territory in the area, which can consequently raise tensions and prompt not just the United States, but other countries, to make a move.

The South China Sea is known for its rich resources and trade. The region sees trillions of trade navigated through its waters, and whoever claims most of the territories is expected to become a world superpower, thus building tensions among countries as far as China and the United States.

News.com.au reported that reclamation efforts could happen sometime early next month. Furthermore, reports said there will not major developments until the G20 summit in the following month and the US presidential election in November.

“Since the G20 will be held in Hangzhou next month, and regional peace will be the main topic among leaders of the great powers, China will refrain from (acting on the) reclamation plan,” said an anonymous source.

The World to be In Chaos

Express also noted that a report for the U.S. army warns that should U.S. and China go to war, it could be “ruinous for both counties,” bringing the global economy down with them. Additionally, the report emphasized that regional disputes should be handled more sensitively as it could only prompt countries to go into military confrontation, which would also come with a higher price.
