First of all, it is definitely better to have no nuclear weapons or any weapons of mass destruction in this planet at all.

But, given the reality of the existence of nuclear powers, the next question is when does a nuclear test by any one of them serve a responsible, rather than an irresponsible, purpose?

When a Nazi-allied country that has murdered nearly a hundred million inocent peoples of neighboring countries makes a formal act of government to re-instate its right to invade other countries, is it more responsible to demonstrate the futility of any future war by doing a nuclear test before that country enacts a policy authorizing its military forces to invade other countries, or more responsible not to do so at all?

Probably the worst alternative is to conduct a nuclear test after such a country has officially authorized its military to invade other countries, as it may beget exactly such an invasion.

To warn with all seriousness, or not to warn at all, that is the question.  If therre is no warning now, there may never be one.  Amen.

When and how should China warn Japan that any act of military aggression by Japan against China could result in the total destruction of Japan?  Or, should China bother to warn Japan at all, as the consequence of its reversal to militarism is all too obvious, and would neither require nor get any warning.

China may not need to bother with Japan at all.
North Korea seems eager enough to keep Japan in its place.
But it should be understood that if Japan tries to invade China again it will become a barren radioactive wasteland.
Where the disciplinary action comes from matters little.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

North Korea's recent testing of short range missiles has been widely interpreted as its warning to South Korea to not even try to attack it, but it could also be interpreted as a warning to Japan, which is on the verge of formalizing at a Cabinet level, an illegal and unconstitutional policy that Japanese military forces are now allowed to invade other countries, such as China, Korea and others, in the name of "collective self-defense".  Which is why China should consider extending Sun Zi's Art of War to using a "defensive conquest" of incorrigible predatorial barbarians, as the Qin, Han, Tang, Sung and Yuan dynasties have done.  There are some barbaric nations that can be converted, but there are also some that, to become peaceful towards their neighbors, have to be conquered - lock, stock and barrel.
