"we will have to respond with nuclear weapons" !

China is prepared to use nuclear weapons against the US if it is attacked by Washington during a confrontation over Taiwan,
“If the Americans draw their missiles and position-guided ammunition on to the target zone on China's territory, I think we will have to respond with nuclear weapons,” said General Zhu Chenghu
“We . . . will prepare ourselves for the destruction of all of the cities east of Xian. Of course the Americans will have to be prepared that hundreds . . . of cities will be destroyed by the Chinese.”

The article is real yes , it was said it response to US pressure over Taiwan ,

The general is not senior so you can't call this an official chinese response , but it was (in my view) designed as a warning

I am of course guessing as to what you ment by "are you serious ?"
