I've read One Second After by William R. Forstchen and I guess an attack with an EMP is more frightening than being hit with a nuclear bomb for the US.
A country which can somehow harness EMP at will, will be a problem. Not only are those aerodynamically-challenged F22s and F117s not gonna be able to keep themselves in the air, but it should also wreak havoc on the computer-reliant war machines of most countries.

Ballistic and guided missile submarines
USS Michigan (SSGN-727), an Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine.
The U.S. has 18 Ohio-class submarines, of which 14 are Trident II SSBNs (Ship, Submersible, Balistic, Nuclear), each capable of carrying 24 SLBMs. The first four which were all equipped with the older Trident I missiles have been converted to SSGN's each capable of carrying 154 Tomahawk guided missiles and have been further equipped to support Special Operations (SEALS). If the maximum of 154 Tomahawk missiles were loaded, one Ohio class SSGN would carry an entire Battle Group's equivalent of cruise missiles. Ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs or boomers in American slang) carry submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) with nuclear warheads for attacking strategic targets such as cities or missile silos anywhere in the world. They are currently universally nuclear-powered to provide the greatest stealth and endurance. They played an important part in Cold War mutual deterrence, as both the United States and the Soviet Union had the credible ability to conduct a retaliatory strike against the other nation in the event of a first strike. This comprised an important part of the strategy of Mutual Assured Destruction.

China and Russia sign contracts worth $15 billion
Associated Press – Sat, Apr 28, 2012
MOSCOW (AP) — Chinese Vice Premier Li Keqiang has announced the signing of contracts between China and Russia worth a total of $15 billion.
Speaking at a trade and investment forum in Moscow attended by hundreds of Chinese businessmen, Li said he and one of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's top deputies had witnessed the signing of contracts for "transport, energy, communications, high technology and investment projects."
Li estimated the total value of the contracts signed on Saturday at more than $15 billion.
Among the specific projects named, he said Russia and China were considering the joint design of a wide-body long-distance passenger plane.
First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov told participants in the forum that Russia was working to improve its investment climate
What if biglang sumugod ang China? Me makakapigil ba nito? Just curious..
Russia, China boost arms spending, says think tank
Associated Press, 17 Apr 2012 | 12:13 PM
The global financial crisis hit military spending in the U.S. and Europe last year, while Russia and China kept increasing their spending on weapons, a leading think tank said Tuesday.
The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute says budget cuts kept worldwide military expenditures nearly flat at 0.3% in 2011, marking an end to an 11-year trend of growing arms spending.
Russia overtook Britain and France to become the world's third largest arms spender, to the tune of some $8 billion — a 9.3% increase over 2010.
China also boosted its purchases by 6.7% to around $143 billion, remaining the world's second largest arms investor.
Hmm... Meron kayang pinaghahandaan ang Russia at China ang mga recent purchases nila. Huwag naman sanang maisip na gawing testing ground ang Pinas ng mga weapons nila.
On related note, even Bangladesh is working on an arms deal with Russia (link) valued at US$850 million.
China has suffered the most during the WWII.. from the chemical warfare of unit731 to nanjing massacre. You think china wants the history to repeat itself to let other nation torture their people? If you think it's wrong to for china to own nuclear power, strong military...etc bakit ok lang meron mga ganun bagay ang. US,japan and other countries?

People need to review recent history and realize that it was Russia that rejected or suppressed Chinese nuclear arms development during the Maoist era.
Also, the real oppression against the Chinese people is coming from the Chinese Government and not from foreign companies or countries doing business in China. State owned enterprises are the ones omitting industry standards and have been employing Cold War spy-tech to suppress workers and prevent any uprisings. Note that there is an increase in worker suicide rates which betray oppressive conditions by state-run enterprises.
This oppressive management style is self-evident in radical socialism such as in Hitler's Germany and the USSR under Stalin. Stalin in fact eliminated his rivals and was even accused of the murder of his wife. I guess that since propaganda is dirty strong in socialism, eventually the partnership among the dishonest leaders would have to be dissolved in favor of dictatorship, leading to the PURGE of "ambitious" loyalists who count among those who labored to establish socialism by dishonest and treacherous deeds.
There was also Nixon's meeting with Mao.
Oppression comes from both, with costs lowered by avoiding "industry standards," especially when it involved environmental protection. No responses from the West regarding suppression of workers or even human rights abuses in allied countries like Saudi Arabia. When money talks....
Many of these countries, including China and Saudi Arabia, are major trading partners of the U.S., which in turn employs its own form of "management style" by increasing debt and making citizens happy via consumer spending.
Well nakakainis talaga ang ginagawa ng mga ******. pero kung susuriin mo ng malalim mas nakakainis ang taga kanluran.
@ pretty and distress. Walang Nuclear ang mga hapon at di rin sila pwedeng gumawa ng mga heavy armament> Di pa ito pinapayagan ng kanilang constitution. Kaya nga ang mga gamit nila ay gawa ng mga kano. Pero sila ang silent giant. dahil kaya nilang mag produce ng pinakamarami nito kung sakali. Aside from tech nila. ang toyota na lang ay kayang manggawa ng 3milyong oto kada taon o mahigit na 8,000 na oto araw- araw at sila ang may pinakamaraming shipyards sa buong mundo. isa sila sa pinakamaraming supply ng bakal. they can easily convert ang kanilang facilities sa war machine factories pag dumating ang araw. Just like noong WW2. Talo nila sa production ang kahit na anong nasyon sa mundo. Unless bura agad sa mapa ang kanilang bansa sa isang bagsak pa lang. I like ang foreign policies nila. They can build anything even Nuclear instantly. May supply sila ng fuel nito. But for the meantime wala pa sa kanilang constitution ang pag gawa nito. They've got my respect though even though I know that they don't care about my respect. Tama lang naman si PandD na dapat maghanda ang lahat it will come. Unlike us " pahingi ng inyong pinaglumaan".
ano kaya ginagawa ng gobyerno natin dito? samantalang busy sila kay corona? antayin pa ba natin mag gera bago sila umaksyon..
