    Inside China: Nuclear submarines capable of widespread attack on U.S.

    On Monday, leading media outlets including China Central TV, the People’s Daily, the Global Times, the PLA Daily, the China Youth Daily and the Guangmin Daily ran identical, top-headlined reports about the “awesomeness” of the People's Liberation Army navy’s strategic submarine force.

    “This is the first time in 42 years since the establishment of our navy’s strategic submarine force that we reveal on such a large scale the secrets of our first-generation underwater nuclear force,” the Global Times said in a lengthy article titled “China for the First Time Possesses Effective Underwater Nuclear Deterrence against the United States.”

    Chinese calculations for nuclear attacks on the U.S. are chillingly macabre.

    Because the Midwest states of the U.S. are sparsely populated, in order to increase the lethality, [our] nuclear attacks should mainly target the key cities on the West Coast of the United States, such as Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego,” the Global Times said.

    The 12 JL-2 nuclear warheads carried by one single Type 094 SSBN can kill and wound 5 million to 12 million Americans,” the Global Times reported.
    Here's the nuclear target map that was broadcast to Chinese citizens.

    Chinese calculations for nuclear attacks on the U.S. are chillingly macabre.

    “Because the Midwest states of the U.S. are sparsely populated, in order to increase the lethality, [our] nuclear attacks should mainly target the key cities on the West Coast of the United States, such as Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego,” the Global Timessaid.

    “The 12 JL-2 nuclear warheads carried by one single Type 094 SSBN can kill and wound 5 million to 12 million Americans,” the Global Times reported.
    Here's a chilling look at a world power and government that has no respect for political correctness and has no concerns about being voted out of power. China is the dangerously toxic combination of being extreme socialist inside its borders, but full-scale capitalist to the outside world.

    You wonder how this was receivers from the Chinese viewers in their homes, and if this is a mere eventuality that is only a matter of time.

    Want to cut military spending and development? Think there's a real interest from China (and Russia) for real nuclear disarmament? And what trigger from the Middle East could perhaps set all this in motion?

    They wargame like the US wargames, like virtually every country wargames.

    Does it make a difference? Is it more real if the news reports it?

    Well if they do attack the US with nukes, I hope that is the side of the country they do it on.

    Wait a second... We've been pointing nuclear weapons at the rest of the world as figurative "guns to their heads", and now that China is doing the same thing, they must have "no respect for political correctness"?

    So we're even less special than we used to be; that shouldn't come as a surprise.

    Read the hum-ho comments by the media, as if this is an instruction manual on how to change the oil on a car.

    China would be ignorant not to project a defense against the threats of USA hegemony. We have actively invaded many Nations so only the morons don't think we would invade them. Simply shows good judgment on the part of the Chinese. Now let's boot the warmongers out of our gov't. Let's eliminate that $700 billion military offense budget. Let's get organized to fight global warming and nuclear pollution.

    So they have wargames and they were reported by state media. Does reporting it make it more real? Does reporting it in a ho hum way make it more real?

    That's the point I'm making. That they have nuclear weapons trained on the U.S. is not news to anyone, but the matter-of-fact way they report it to their citizenry is creepy.

    Meanwhile, we have Anderson Cooper doing stories on bullying in third grade.
