Chinese rattling more than a saber

While Major General Chenghu has stated he believes that China would use nuclear weapons in response to conventional weapons attacks by the US if we were to go to the mat over Taiwan. This is significant. What is more significant is that he may have tipped the hand of the Chinese military by stating that "hundreds" of cities could be destroyed. It's well known that the Chinese have possessed nuclear weapons since the height of the cold war, but this could quite possibly represent a serious escalation of the tension of one small nation. Or rather one small nation and the right of self determination.
