China has been using the same rocket for launching satellites cheap as they use for lobbing nuclear warheads.
Does anyone who can add 1+1 think China only has a handful of ICBM's?
Does anyone who can add 2+1 think China's nuclear forces are strictly for deterrence?
The Chinese Communist Party CANNOT BE TRUSTED. They have been gearing up for war and when Greece defaults, and drags America down with it due to the FDIC assuming coverage of the 75 trillion in derivatives, you REALLY think with a collapsed global economy China's going to keep making junk consumer goods?
They will act to survive. They will go to war. They can literally arm a quarter-billion men who will NEVER have children with assault rifles and clean up after nuke strikes. Oh, and they can take over the hundreds of modern roll-on, roll-off merchant vessels and attempt to conquer America. Because 1.5 billion Chinese cannot exist on a US sized territory where only a third is arable.
US worries over China's underground nuclear networkWASHINGTON — A leading US lawmaker who fears budget cuts could delay modernizing the US nuclear arsenal voiced concern Friday about an extensive tunnel complex designed to house Chinese nuclear missiles.
"This network of tunnels could be in excess of 5,000 kilometers (3,110 miles), and is used to transport nuclear weapons and forces," said Michael Turner, who chairs a House Armed Services Committee panel focusing on strategic weapons and other security programs.
"As we strive to make our nuclear forces more transparent, China is building this underground tunnel system to make its nuclear forces even more opaque," he added, citing an unclassified Department of Defense report.
Experts also expressed their concern about the network, whose existence was revealed by official Chinese media in late 2009.
The tunnels would allow China to launch a nuclear counter-attack if it was hit by a nuclear strike. "It's almost mind-boggling," said Mark Schneider, senior analyst at the National Institute for Public Policy.
