Chinese Military Can Nuke America

I have always thought that like the Iranian government, the Chinese government cannot be trusted fully. Also, I have always thought that the agendas of its military and political apparatus with the Chinese party are very different.

Recently, Chinese TV and press have been releasing detailed accounts and planning from its military about how they can devastate America with their nuclear bombs. The PLA report (China's military) indicated in detail how China could make nuclear strikes on U.S. cities that would kill millions of Americans and despite the mutual economic benefits, America remains the "real" enemy, still.

That is chilling, if you think about it.

Descriptions of a nuclear war against the United States ran on China Central TV, including Global Times, People’s Daily, the PLA Daily (official newspaper of the People’s Liberation Army), China Youth Daily, and the Guangmin Daily. Much of the West Coast would be attacked, at least the major urban areas but China has intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) capable of destroying U.S. populations in East Coast cities when fired over the North Pole the report showed. They stated that between 5-10 million Americans could be killed in a nuclear attack.

The Chinese media was inundated with this potential for three days and they over the Internet, the PLA, launched a campaign of war mongering against the USA stating that the USA is trying to undermine the culture of China and making China similar to the US. China’s JL-2 missile has sufficient range to strike U.S. cities on the West Coast and as far east as Chicago while operating in China’s coastal waters. Also, the 12 JL-2 nuclear warheads carried by one single Type 094 ballistic missile submarine that can do so from the South China Sea.

The question is why? Perhaps its military is showing a glimpse of its real attitude about the US, despite the friendly facade.

Think twice about the Chinese military.

      Very good question. For three days, Chinese media broadcasted this in certain areas. Like I said, the Chinese military are not always agreeing with the political leaders, they are a separate entity.

      How come we never see these stories in the nightly news (network or cable)? I never do. This is important stuff. I see Jane's reports on their build up. The Pentagon must know this. Are they distracted? I wouldn't blame them. But that's a leak I would support. Does China have a Snowden-like figure lurking in their intelligence services?

      In many ways we have a Cold War with China; the only difference is the level of business with the PRC is much greater than with the old Soviet Union.
