With mounting indications that a nuclear war between the U.S. and China is likely, Beijing has just conducted a flight test of its new anti-satellite missile.

The test of the anti-satellite missile named ‘Dong Neng-3’ (DN-3) took place on October 30 at the Korla Missile Test Complex in western China, and was reported just now by The Washington Free Beacon.

This Long/ Short Equity Firm Sees A Time-Arbitrage Opportunity In This Pest Control Merger

PestYost Partners was up 0.8% for the first quarter, while the Yost Focused Long Funds lost 5% net. The firm's benchmark, the MSCI World Index, declined by 5.2%. The funds' returns outperformed their benchmark due to their tilt toward value, high exposures to energy and financials and a bias toward quality. In his first-quarter letter Read More

However, details around the launch of the Dong Neng-3 as well as whether it was successful or not are yet unknown.

The “final-phase missile interception test had been conducted in the upper atmosphere,” according to the Hong Kong-based newspaper Ming Pao. Beijing has been conducting a number of anti-satellite tests by disguising them as missile defense interceptor tests to avoid international outrage.

China has carried out eight anti-satellite tests since 2005, while some its tests in 2010, 2013 and 2014 were said to be “land-based missile interception tests.” It was in 2007 when China got in the center of international attention because of its anti-satellite capabilities. Beijing then managed to destroy a defunct weather satellite with a missile.

The parent of the DN-3 – a ballistic missile (DN-2) was tested in 2013 and almost reached geosynchronous orbit by ascending to around 18,600 miles above earth. U.S. defense officials familiar with the launch of the anti-satellite missile told The Washington Free Beacon that it is “primarily a direct-ascent missile designed to ram into satellites and destroy them, even if intelligence assessments hold that the weapon has some missile defense capabilities.”

Is U.S. lagging behind China in space?

There is also a number of other details about the DN-3 that remain unknown. “China recently developed two new and more powerful space launchers called the KZ-1 and KZ-11. A DN-3 weapon based on the KZ-11 launcher would be capable of hitting targets at higher orbits,” Bill Gertz said, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

The Pentagon’s chief weapons buyer, Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Frank Kendall, said during a conference in March that U.S. technological advantages in the space sphere are “particularly bad” due to the Chinese and Russian efforts to boost their anti-satellite capabilities.

“The substantial range of orbital altitude — 1,000 kilometers to 36,000 kilometers — from which satellites operate poses a challenge to China’s ability to attack U.S. military satellites (…) Unlike the U.S., China has a very limited satellite tracking capability, most of which are based in its territory and possibly a few ships,” contributor to The Diplomat Jaganath Sankaran explained in 2014.

How badly can China damage U.S. militarily?

The ongoing confrontation at sea between Washington and Beijing has made the world realize that the two powers do not share interests in key international areas.

With Washington sending USS Lassen to sail inside the 12-mile nautical zone around Subi Reef in the Spratly Islands archipelago, and Beijing threatening to respond in case further “provocations” take place, the chances of a military confrontation are higher than ever.

But what could China possibly do to the U.S. in case such a confrontation takes place in the nearest future? One fact is clear: for two decades, China has been actively modernizing its armed forces with more advanced and powerful weapons. So the question is: does China has what it takes to do at least any kind of damage to the U.S.?

As of today, China is still in the process of massive and long yet prosperous modernization of its military. China improves both its nuclear and conventional forces to be able to withstand such powers as the U.S. in military confrontations.

But only an insignificant part of China’s conventional forces can target American militaries overseas, and no China’s forces are capable of attacking the U.S. on its own soil. And while Chinese conventional missiles and bombers could easily attack U.S. military bases in Japan and Korea, they could never reach Hawaii or Alaska.

Deadly consequences for U.S. in case of nuclear war

China’s naval forces are constantly being updated with new submarines, destroyers and other vessels, which would pose a great threat to the U.S. Navy in a military confrontation at sea. But in terms of size, the U.S. Navy outmatches the Chinese navy by a few times.

If China vs. U.S. war is to take place in the nearest future, China’s ground forces would have to sail across oceans to reach vulnerable spots of the U.S. But China has only four large Type 071 amphibious ships capable of deploying a total of just about 8,000 troops, which is not enough to counter an all-ready U.S. army.

Even if China manages to get up to 32,000 troops on board of these four ships, the firepower of the U.S. military would sink all four of them in no time.

As for China’s nuclear capabilities, the country has about 190 operational nuclear warheads spread among land-based missiles and ballistic missile submarines.

Beijing also has about 50 intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), and although these missiles are capable of reaching U.S. soil, only a third of them could reach critical spots of the U.S. territory.

In case of a nuclear war between Washington and Beijing, China is capable of launching up to 62 missiles against the U.S. And while such a number does not present a great threat to the U.S., if China combines its nuclear capabilities with Russia, the consequences for U.S. would be deadly.

  1. That’s just bonds and still that’s almost 2% of America’s net worth. I’m talking about major corporations and land development projects financed and owned by Chinese corporations (Government). Smithfield Foods is one example. When CHINA bought them, the got the deed to almost 500 farms. Not to mention the millions of Chinese and Chinese nationals that live in this country. I’d say a nuclear exchange with China would have zero benefit to them.

  2. Haha! Go learn english first before you point your yellow finger. ;-)

    Nothing on what ‘Traditional’ is or means. Funny I thought only trolls would evade and change topics.

  3. tbenton62, you are free to ask your military friends. I have more for you. The US government grows a lot of drugs in south American countries and sell them for profit.. And the US government grows a lot of opium in Afghastan too. We took water from Egypt the nile and channel them to the opium crop. The Egyptians were protesting against us, because they did not have enough water last year. You should travel outside the US sometimes. You will see the real news.

  4. …WELL, MY GRANDFATHER WAS BORN IN THE U.S.A. SERVED AS A CAPTAIN IN THE US ARMY AFTER GRADUATING FROM CAL. BERKLEY IN ENGINEERING AND MY GREAT GRANDFATHER ARRIVED IN CALIFORNIA IN 1872?
    WE HAVE NEVER BEEN A PART OF THE RISE OF COMMUNISM AS THESE FIRST CHINESE FAMILIES WERE EXPELLED BY THE ISLAMIC CHING DYNASTY FROM ANCIENT CHINA JUST AFTER THE US CIVIL WAR.
    MY GRANDFATHER WAS ALSO A U.S. MILITARY ARTILLERY COMMANDER AND ATTACHE FOR THE U.S. EMBASSY IN MAINLAND CHINA CIRCA 1938 UNDER THE NATIONALISTS UNDER CHANG KAI SHEK.
    HIS REAL PURPOSE IN CHINA WAS TO MANAGE THE SILKWAN AIRPLANE MANUFACTURING PLANT FOR THE FLYING TIGERS.
    IN ADDITION, MY FATHER WAS A USAF FIELD CAPTAIN DURING THE KOREAN CONFICT WITH THE USAF OSI AS A FIELD SPY TO FIND OUT HOW THE NORTH KOREANS WERE GETTING SUPPLIES OUT OF COMMUNIST CHINA?
    INTERESTING ENOUGH IT WAS BY SUBMARINES ACQUIRED FROM THE JAPANESE OCCUPATION OF MANCHURIA HIDDEN ON NIPA STILTED HUTS ON THE YANGTZE RIVER.
    OF COURSE THE U.S. BOMBED THE SUBS THUS DESTROYING THE COMMUNIST ABILITY TO TRANSFER WEAPONS AN SUPPLIES OUT TO THE COMMUNIST NORTH KOREANS.
    WE ALSO HELPED TRAIN THE CARLSON’S RAIDERS IN SHAOLIN KUNTAO AND SILAT WHERE 400 MARINES SOME WHO WERE CHINOY (CHINESE FILIPINOS) ON 2 BALO CLASS SUBMARINES LIKE SARDINES IN A CAN HELPED TO TAKE OUT THE MAKIN ISLAND RELAY STATION THUS BLINDING THE IMPERIAL JAPANESE TO THE US NAVY’S WHERE ABOUTS ON THE OPEN PACIFIC.
    CARLSON’S RAIDERS BATTLE CRY “GUNG HO” IS A ENGLISH VERSION OF THE ANCIENT CHINESE WORDS “KUNG FU” WHICH MEANS TO FOLD SPACE AND TIME!
    THE DESTRUCTION OF OVER 3000 IMPERIAL JAPANESE ALONG WITH AN ATTACHED AIRBASE ALLOWED THE U.S. TO DESTROY THE IMPERIAL JAPANESE FLEET AND RETAKE PHILIPPINES!

  5. The Nov 13, 2015 afternoon marketwatch.com article on Gold price movement is poorly written, because it fails to mention that on Nov 30, 2015 , the Executive Committee of the IMF will announce that the Chinese Yuan Currency will become a “hard currency” , as presently are Euro, Yen, Pound, and Dollar; thus SDR will now include Yuan, thereby weakening U.S. Dollar and simultaneously strengthening Gold priced in U.S. Dollars per ounce !

    The subject Nov 13 marketwatch.com article also fails to mention the points made by the brilliant Kira Brecht in her recent kitco.com article that Gold Mining Stock Equities are showing Positive Divergence with Gold price, thus portending a rise in Gold priced in U.S. Dollars per ounce in the coming days and weeks ; In this connection, examine the daily Bar Charts for ABX, GG, GOLD, and NEM.

    Additionally, the subject Nov 13 marketwatch.com article fails to mention the new Lighthouses that China has now constructed on two of its Manmade Military Islands in the China Sea, thus allowing China to lay claim to all of the China Sea riches, in blatant defiance of the impotent U.S. Military and their intimidated allies of Japan, S. Korea, and Philippines.

    The subject Nov 13 marketwatch.com article also fails to mention the long-term double top now forming in DXY (the U.S. Dollar Index) due, among other things, to the all-time record monthly China Trade Surplus of $61.46 Billion for October 2015 — over $40 Billion of which was with the U.S.– as the beleaguered U.S. Manufacturing Base has been torn to shreds by the incessant, obsessive, Jawboning by FRB Hawks threatening the Markets with a increase in Fed Funds Rate. The ludicrous FRB “Dot Plot” showed on Nov 7, 2013 that the “Mode” was 2.5% Fed Funds Rate for 2015, and yet the Fed Funds Rate is still stuck at its current 0.0% to 0.25% range for the foreseeable future due to the havoc that ISIS is raising in Europe, Egypt, and elsewhere as mounting worldwide Geopolitical Tensions continue to tear at the fabric of National Economies !

  6. Hi Kun:
    You make a good point. The Communist Chinese party is a millstone around the necks of the Chinese people. I hope the Chinese people can remove that millstone at some point for our mutual good.

  7. Then why bring using simplified Chinese into it? I don’t speak or use it. So I assume you do use it else you wouldn’t be talking about it. The usage clearly points to you.

    I have no idea what ‘Traditional’ means. Makes no sense.

    You have a clear and obvious problem with english though. You throw terms around like smart and stupid but you can’t even command the english language. You would fail even low grade exams at elementary schools.

  8. America was kicked out Vietnam. China entered Vietnam to prevent Vietnam from invading its neighborx. Vietnam stopped invasion and China had accomplished its mission and withdrew.

  9. IMF should not add Chinese Yuan to basket of reserve
    currency. For one thing, the Chinese economy has not proved itself during the
    “new normal” economic times and Chinese govt is not acceptable. What
    is different from them and Britain, USA, Japan and Europe? They are an
    authoritarian communist country with few of the rights and freedoms of the
    other countries involved. This would be a complete sellout of the western
    ideals and I believe hasten the beginning of the next world war. Keep them out
    until they conform their govt to the other govts involved, like having
    constitutional rights for their citizens. This is nonsense to be talking about
    adding China, this authoritarian regime is not westernized, is not free and
    thus can not be trusted.

  10. What I think is that not one of us here will know what would really happen.

    That aside the U.S would have to take out 3 times the number of SV’s. Right now the U.S simply could not pull that off.

    China has Galileo as well. BeiDoe I, BeiDoe II – Compass. Mind you that U.S SV’s are visible to the naked eye if you know where to look. Pretty far if your walking but not hard to reach for a missile. China’s SV’s have a different and higher orbit. U.S needs new missile systems to get to them.

    China’s tests are hitting the mark. U.S hasn’t tested anything that can take those out. The system to quickly replace gaps in the GPS system by swarms of microsattelites has been tested and it failed just recently.

  11. If I had any reasonable assets and lived in China, I’d get out. Historically, there are revolutions in China that will take wealth and property from those who have it, and re-distribute it to other people. China is no place to get ahead. To their credit, people there work really hard and take pride in their work.

  12. They want the middle class to pay for it, yet the dudes like Romney are the ones profiting from outsourcing our economy to China, and then to really kick us in the groin, Romney and his ilk hide their assets off-shore, and the income they do end up declaring gets taxed at the lower capital gains rate.

  13. The poorly equipped China fought the mightiest America to a stand still ( stalemate) in Korea. That is very embarrassing for America in the eyes of the world.

  14. China was a flash in the pan that burned a lot of countries and commodity producers that rose to supply and service them. China is not coming back, they mismanaged their economy completely just like a poor kid that signs a pro sports contract. China does not have a handle on governance only in authoritarianism. Corrupt immature state that had their time in the sun. Get over them.

  15. Too bad the U.S Bureau of Census has the same numbers as me.

    Not hard to look for the truth. http://www.census.gov

    You really have a thing with this google. I would advise against using that as a source for information. There is a reason most educational systems globally have banned the use of that.

    Good luck with living in your google bubble of denial. U.S Bureau of Census will open your mind. Unless it’s shut forever.

  16. What I know China is good in making firework. Never heard a patriot type made in China.
    China bragging for its military “tin cans” build up/hardware but the reality it cannot even solve it borders problems.

  17. Oh, one more thing I didn’t mention. I lived in China for three years. Nanning, Guangxi to be specific. During the time I lived there I saw many young Chinese whose aspirations were to come to America for their education. Thousands of kids all across China wanted to come to escape Communism thus searching for a better life for not only for themselves, but their families as well. So much for your analogies regarding the American educational system.

  18. There is no doubt that you’re a communist troll of whom avoids all aspects of truth, for lies. Keep believing your communist Holy Grail and do not think for yourself. Google is an excellent source of information. The search for the truth has always been mans passion. Do as you will. I am through communicating with you. A mind is like a parachute, you either keep it open or shut it forever. Good luck with your one sided views,

  19. The US and China are not going to war and its unlikely the situation will change in the near future setting other than in propagandists pipe dreams. The China economy is far too dependent on the US and Japan both as places to export and the importing of goods critical to the Chinese economy.

  20. Fastest supper computer? It might be mine–last night I put in my order for Szechuan Chicken (to a local Chinese restaurant) in a fraction of a second. LOL!

  21. Ah the ad hominem troll technique. Sorry but go try that at kindergarten. U.S education ranks 27th. Categorized as 3rd world education. Come back when your at least in the top 5?

    Average U.S intelligence scores below the human average of a 100.

    Feel free to look it up. ;-) Just don’t be dumb and use Google. lol.

  22. HA…there’s nothing to elaborate on you fool. I can see the Mao standard of education limits your knowledge to nothing less than a grain of salt and being continuously brain washed 24/7 makes you look like an idiot. What’s even more hilarious is the fact that you believe what you say. By the way, don’t take my word for it. Try and look it up yourself on Google.

  23. Haha yea right. All Americans left we’re put in concentration camps. You really think they put a man on the moon? Why isn’t there a totempole on the moon then? Care to eleborate?

    Cos no American ever made it to the moon. That was white colonists my dear boy. Your knowledge of U.S history is at best laughable. Try reading a book or going to a actual museum?

    U.S can’t even put a man into orbit. China does that. Again and again and again. The fact that you need to laught that all away is very telling isn’t? Only way to deny the facts.

  24. LOL…yeah right…from bows and arrows to putting a man on the moon in less than 200 years….what has China done in 5,000 years? The information you’ve been reading is at best laughable.

  25. who rank the world fastest supper computer in 2015 so far. if not U..S or the German then that country might be put their engineers to ride the time machine to travel the Wests in 2016 and stole the blue print ….

  26. Can’t blame them if you were Chinese , u would do the same id you were in their shoe since you always try to contain and demonizing her, beside that she had have been trying to defense her self thousand years like the Great Wall. They are proud people;Chinese been isolated by two super powers and the E.U in 1950 era , but she could still stand up, making nuke, satellites, sending her own people to space by her own rocket, (from stealing or copied …whatever )
    and this is Chinese troll….

  27. Why would China has to send troops and invade the US? That’s crazy! All China has to do is jam or hack the computer networks and satellite communications of the US to cause disruptions of food stamps, basic social services, electricity, etc. This will result in massive riot and chaos all over the country. With about half of the population owning a gun, they will use it and turn against each other. No need to send troops there.

  28. They’re right. U.S nuclear arsenal is FUBAR. You would know this if you had done your homework on that subject.

    Good luck with duck and cover!

    I’ll be deep underground safe and sound, lol.

  29. That’s from the same era that had Flash Gordon. It’s so last century.

    U.S defense will be duck & cover. Rest of the world will be underground alive and well.

    And in the 21st century the U.S nuclear arsenal is FUBAR. Aka scrap metal. Not very assuring is it?

  30. Works better then your non- existant use of capitals at the beginning of a sentence.

    Where are you from that they don’t use capitals at the beginning of a sentence I wonder. ;-) In my country that’s considered pretty stupid, lol.

  31. How could the U.S destroy China in a matter of hours?

    Don’t forget alot of NATO members are made up of allies that the U.S spied on. And those have not forgotten the U.S attacking their sovereign security. If Russia and China would destroy the U.S all those allies would be safe from U.S spying and stealing of technology.

  32. You mean you invented your own personal history?

    The Americans barely made it to bows, arrows and canoes. Then they almost got driven to extinction.

  33. I believe your drug is much stronger than anything I’m aware of.. China has never invented anything without stealing information. Obama met with Xi about this very problem and quite obviously it did no good. China did not invent Stealth Technology whereas the Americans did. China acquired that technology many years later when they purchased parts of a stealth helicopter that was shot down as we killed Bin Laden. China wouldn’t have OS Windows had it not been for the Americans. WE invented the internet.

  34. China spying? No proof.

    U.S spying? On it’s very own allies even and many others? Heaps of proof. With confirmation and apologies from the Potus himself.

    On a personal note I’d like to know something. Did you do this … ‘forensics’ wearing a alufoil hat?

  35. Ah so you know all the specifics about a top secret program? Yea right.

    You write goverment with a captital? Not hard to guess which country your from making mistakes like that is it?

  36. Dumb Statement the United States has enough nuclear weapons not only to target all of China’s population centers but even individual buildings.
    Nuclear weapons are only good as a deterrent against a Nuclear attack. They are useless on the battlefield.

  37. Value walk is just a communist propaganda rag that is totally incorrect in all of it’s assumptions and not worth reading and should not be allowed to be published on any American internet services

  38. Actually with the ABM systems in place China would be lucky to get a few through. Grant it that taking out one city would be terrible, China does not have the nukes available to wipe us out, we have them to wipe them out ten times.

  39. As if China’s satellites can’t be taken down by SM-3IIA’s… If China wish to level-up the outer-space war then so be it! What do you think will happen if you down one US satellite? China’s bird’s eye-view will completely black out. Who are you kidding Chinese morons!

  40. This is silly, first, China has got less then 1000 nukes, thinking there will be a nuke war with them would be suicidal on their part. Just more sensational reporting.

  41. The author of this article and all the others that I have read have all had anti-American sentiment. If you ask me I think she is a propagandist from Russia. Fact being we are by far the most advanced military in the world point blank. Our military has its own shuttle that is laying mini sats. all around the earth that which is for none other than warfare. China and Russia lag 20 years behind the US in almost all technology and have a snow balls chance in hell of ever catching up. We have extremely highly advanced weapons that have yet to be released to the public let a loan the world. Only war can say who the top dog is but I am more than sure the US will be wagging its tail long after the others have died. So Bow Wow motherfcker.

  42. Since the ROC was an ally of the US, China would have gotten a first class economy by the 1970s through bilateral trade with the US.

  43. Instead of spending trillions more on new weapons to counter China’s aggression, let’s put tariff’s on Chinese goods. I would cripple their economy and end their ability to expand militarily. Sure, it would cause inflation here, but that is cheaper than the massive tax increase for an even bigger military.

  44. After a full scale nuclear exchange there would be no one left on this planet. Stop joking with yourself an do your home work on this subject.

  45. huh? US doesn’t pick China, China made themselves as threat to global balance. Just recently after China’s economic boom what did China do? scramble jets with Japan, fired water cannon on local fishermen of Philippines, rammed ships of vietnam, deployed oil rig to contested area of vietnam, destroyed 3000 acres of marine life within the EEZ of Philippines, has intruded territorial waters of Malaysia, has contesting claim of islands with Indonesia. Maybe you are lagging in terms of current events thats why you did not know or should i say neglected this facts?

  46. China can lose help of the population, how many are there in US.
    good to push the button first to destroy US completely.

    come and try PLA

  47. neat….We have the x-37 which is a “reusable orbital spaceplane”. I am not sure what it is for because the Government refuses to tell but it is a drone, that can be armed and put into orbit for years at a time, then it can come home and get rearmed and sent back up….so while china has a missle that can destroy a satellite, we have a drone that could have several missles already up there waiting

  48. Lets put this in perspective. China has been threatening our satellites for years now. They have also been intimidated by by the USN and USAF for years especially USN’s carriers. The plane launched systems to hit objects is 1990’s tech. In terms of of military tech China is 15-30 years behind the USA. For example China is trying to use Shenyang J-15 (A knockoff of he Soviet-designed Sukhoi Su-33). but its engines do not have enough thrust for take off from the carrier so they have to by Russian engines for J-15.

    In terms of number China’s Navy and Air force is not much a threat to the USA.

    People’s Liberation Army Navy (China): 708,086 tons
    Aircraft Carrier value includes dedicated “helicopter carrier” vessels. Total naval strength includes all known auxiliaries as well.
    Total Naval Strength: 673
    Aircraft Carriers: 1
    Frigates: 47

    Transport Aircraft: 5,366
    Trainer Aircraft: 2,809
    Helicopters: 6,196
    Attack Helicopters: 920

    There are two more factors to consider.
    (1) China lacks practical experience in war China’s last major conflict was in 1979 when it Invaded Vietnam unless you count Tiananmen Square in 1989.
    China’s economy needs the USA. If the USA stopped trading with China it might cause a Recession in the USA but China’s economy would be destroyed.

  49. Philologist writing nonsense. How does she know China only has 62 missiles?

    She has no idea that China has been building more new nuclear reactors than the world combined. Why would they keep their nuclear force so small? Why would they tell anyone how many missiles they have?

    One modern nuclear MIRV warhead from a DF-41 missile, that can reach anywhere in the continental United States, would make a bad day for us and our stock market.

  50. Why the US always picks on China when it has the most powerful and most advanced military technology already 20 years ahead of China? Why the US is so afraid of China or just use China as an excuse for its own military development?

  51. The truth is that so far there is no single solid evidence shows that China has stolen tech from the US, only speculations. The US cannot do anything to stop China’s fast development and advancement, it uses every trick to put China down to degrading China and Chinese people so that it can keep its superiority image and world domination position. No matter what you say about China, the truth is that the US has the largest spy network around world for its military and technology advancement purposes. Americans corporations go around world to use skilled people all around world to help it to do research and development. Without foreign skilled people, the US cannot be where it is today in military and technology superiority position.

  52. Everything China is developing, the US already have long time ago so what is the big deal? Plus, why the US is so much picking on China when it has done exactly the same and more aggressive than anyone else in the world? The only thing I can say about the US is a stupid control freak who only blame on others for doing the same as it does all the time.

  53. There is a Chinese adage that says “A man who makes mistakes all the time is *diot; A man who makes one mistake and learns a lesson is smart; A man who learns from other people is more than a genius” The Chinese are more than genius. The Chinese save billions of dollars in research and development money by cyber hacking and learning from American corporate and defense secrets.

  54. Just click on this woman’s name at the top. She makes money from talking about the inevitable war that’s coming, with no regard for how it effects people’s thinking. She’s a fear monger for cash, simple as that.

  55. 2010: undetected Chinese sub fires missile over California.
    2007: undetected Chinese sub surfaces within torpedo range of US carrier. Actually, no-one knows how many nukes China has, except China- some say it’s already over 3,000. China will nuke your butts before you cry mama.

  56. Great fear mongering. As soon as I saw the words ‘nuclear war’ and ‘likely’ I tuned you out. Do you REALLY think that China is stupid enough to start a nuclear war? Is America? Are you? Come on, get with reality.

    Sure, these leaders will toy with their people’s lives in the name of resources (Iraq, Kuwait, reefs in the ocean), but destroy entire regions and millions of people? To gain what? Chest puffing?

    The sad truth is, China is on track to equal the US militarily, and its scary. So what are you going to do? Chinese are very peaceful people, as are Americans. It’s the leadership and media we should fear (control better).

    So do we engage the Chinese peacefully or fight the unknown because stupid ‘news’ reports like this tell us it’s inevitable? Must we always view the world as who has the most clout? Why not just enjoy what you have and stop staring at your neighbors’ stuff? We definitely have enough things to worry about without making up more.

  57. Fear Mongering BS, the US spends as much on military as the rest of the world combined, it is the only country with ambitions to control the world. What possible motive would China have to start a nuclear war? The US and its allies account for most of its trade, without the US, China’s economy would collapse. What credentials does this author have to state that China is preparing for nuclear war? Somehow a “Master’s Degree in English Philology” grants her access to top level military secrets? Dumbest article I’ve read in a while.

  58. Also a total rookie, cub reporter, who most likely bought her Masters online. Her articles lack due diligence, good research.

  59. This rookie, cub reporter, clearly failed to do her due diligence before writing this report.

    1. She failed to research China’s entire military has no, zero, nada, zilch, real world combat experience. From the highest ranking officer to the lowest conscript, no combat experience.

    2. China has a major quality control problem. Their first passenger jet was built off the old DC-9 airframe concept, out of date from the start. So we are supposed to believe their military aviation industry can suddenly make world class military aircraft? Really? Remember, all their military aircraft are flown and maintained by rookies.

    3. China has not got the technical expertise to build an aircraft carrier much less world class military ships. Remember, all their Navy ships are crewed by rookies.

    4. China has earned the title “Paper TIger” for good reason. Compared to US military members, China spends very little on “Force Multipliers” they can wear, increase their lethality. Basically they have a uniform, some load carrying equipment and a weapon. Remember, all their military members are lead by rookie military officers who bought that chest full of ribbons from Alibaba.

    When you read these types of articles, easy to see written by a “Cub Reporter.”

  60. US = A crumbling empire. This is how Rome fell. The US is following Rome’s foot steps really darn well. Just look at china president Xi, He visit US last month. His first stop was in Washington State, to meet with Boeing Aircraft company and meet with 15 top CEO of silicon valley tech companies. What do this tell you? Then, xi , when to the east coast to see Obama. What does this tell you people???? Duhhhhhh!!!

  61. HEY PINKY BOY!
    WE ALREADY HAVE…WHY DO YOU THINK THE CIVILIAN NASA UNDER THE SPACE SHUTTLE PROGRAM ENDED WITHOUT A SUCCESSOR? BECAUSE WE WERE ON TO THE COMMUNIST AGENDA YOU PIMPLE DIK!

  62. I travel to Asia each year. This is what I saw in the news there. Bill Clinton sold tritant II sub design and launch missle from sub tech to china for 300 million. George Bush sold coating for US subs tech to china , the coating makes sub not detectable to sonar, for 300 million. US politicians has been selling out US military secrets to get elected.
    China had difficult time get missles / rockets stages separating tech. Their rockets would not separate correctly. US company Hughes aircraft companies sold this tech to china. Still don’t believe me?? During George Bush’s second term election. All the electric bills and gas bills for California was triple. You people in California knows what I am talking about. George Bush got the money , he got elected. No one in the republican party was held accountable, no one went to jail, no investigation was ever conducted. God only knows, how many more tech and military hardware was sold to china by US politicans and tech CEO’s.

  63. We got close to China to shun the Soviet Union and the Soviet Union collapsed. We can shun China the same way and the only way China could be immune to US shunning is if China becomes self-sufficient instead of relying on an export economy to stand. That’s not going to happen anytime soon. China still has an authoritarian system. If China was a democracy in the 1950s, they would’ve had a first class economy by the end of the 1980s.

  64. Thanks, Roy. I was just about to say that. And actually it is down to about 1.3 trillion of T-bills owned by China but the $80 trillion in US assets owned by Americans is correct.

  65. What poppycock! China has 1.4 trillion dollars of US bonds. The Net worth of the USA is over $80 trillion. So how does that equate to owning “much of the USA”?

  66. China owns much of the USA, I doubt they plan on destroying their property. More likely, this is a ploy to turn us against China and reneg on the debt.

  67. The Chinese don’t need sophisticated tracking systems. Since they probably backdoored the hardware we use in ours, they would just need to hack in and use our systems.

  68. Would someone please explain to me as to why we are still trading with China? We are only financially enriching a bitter enemy of the USA. THey have stolen from us, back stabbed us and lied to us at every turn. Why do we try to placate them and call the Chinese people our friends

  69. BUILD SATELITES WITH STEALTH, WEAPONS AND MANUVERING CAPABILITIES.
    PROBLEM SOLVED!
    UP YOURS YOU COMMUNISTS LEG SPLITTERS!!

  70. This chick who writes theses articles is a agent of Russia . Click on her name and you will see the many ANTI AMERICAN articles over the weeks she has written.. She is straight from Moscow .. Go figure

  71. Why does China want to destroy the United States? Have China thought that the United States can wipe China in a matters of hours? Do you think Nato will just stand there and watch China and Russia destroy U.S.? We all want peace in this world. China wants to prove they are stronger than the United States, and Russia thinks they can destroy the world. All the Countries will just stand by and let Russia do the work. Good luck Russia and China.
