On Monday, the Government run Chinese news media revealed Chinese plans for conducting nuclear strikes on U.S. Cities.
The countries leading news outlets including, China Central TV, the People’s Daily, the Global Times, the PLA Daily, the China Youth Daily and the Guangmin Daily all ran identical stories highlighting China’s ability to strike the U.S. with their new strategic submarine nuclear force .
The news agencies showed over 30 graphics that detailed the power of the People’s Liberation Army navy’s strategic submarine force. The graphics included damage projections for Seattle and Los Angeles after being hit by Chinese nuclear warheads.
Emboldened by what the Chinese perceive as a weakened America, the People’s Liberation Army Navy has been increasing their show of power across the Pacific, especially in staking claim to disputed maritime territory in the South China Sea.
Earlier this year, the Chinese participated in joint war games with Russia, who has also been flexing their nuclear muscles at the United States. Yesterday, Russia launched a large-scale military drill that including launching four long-range nuclear-capable missiles.
As America slashes military budgets, and cuts troop numbers to the lowest levels in decades, China and Russia are spending billions of dollars growing their military, and increasing their nuclear arsenals.
The Chinese Plans are absolutely Chilling!
The plans released by the Chinese Media are disturbing to say the least.
To maximize American casualties, the Chinese plans included targeting major cities on the west coast to “increase lethality.” As reported in the Times article, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego were chosen as key targets because “Midwest states of the U.S. are sparsely populated,” and targeting the west coast would increase casualties and radioactive fallout.
Even more disturbing were their plans to send nukes over the North Pole. The Chinese Media reported, “If we launch our DF 31A ICBMs over the North Pole, we can easily destroy a whole list of metropolises on the East Coast and the New England region of the U.S., including Annapolis, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Portland, Baltimore and Norfolk, whose population accounts for about one-eighth of America’s total residents.”
While I doubt the Chinese are stupid enough to actually launch an attack on the U.S. – in my opinion these leaked documents are more psychological warfare than actual reality – the fact is the Chinese have already got us over a barrel. Without ever firing a shot they’ve helped the U.S. destroy itself by bankrolling a huge part of our $17 trillion debt.
Remember, most of these submarines they’re showing off in the Pacific were paid for with U.S. dollars. It’s our debt that’s doing us in.
