I trust India with nukes a lot more than I trust China. And if I lived next door to China, no way would I give up nukes. Just ask the Tibetians or the Taiwanese.

So far, neither country has used a nuclear weapon against someone. Unless you have an instance that the Chinese have. Given some command and control issues with India, I would have to say right now I trust the Chinese more. C&C systems, early warning systems, independent verification, are just some of the issues I have with India and Pakistan. For the longest time the conflict between those nation was the most likely place a nuclear exchange would take place. Now, I think Israel/Iran is the most likely suspects.
Question, does China actually field any nuclear weapons or just store the warheads? I know very little of the Chinese nuclear posture. Perhaps someone can help me.
