Chinese activist warns of nuclear war
Washington Times

China is preparing for nuclear war with the United States over Taiwan, and a conflict is likely in the near future because of divisions among Beijing's leaders, a Chinese democracy activist says.

"Sino-U.S. relations are reaching a crucial point and most of the American public does not know about," said Mr. Wei Jingsheng, a leading international advocate for political reform in China, who spent almost 18 years in Chinese prisons before his release in 1997. "The United States needs to pay more attention to the possibility of nuclear war with China."
