(Reuters) - China appears to be within two years of deploying submarine-launched nuclear weapons, adding a new leg to its nuclear arsenal that should lead to arms-reduction talks, a draft report by a congressionally mandated U.S. commission says.
China is alone among the original nuclear weapons states to be expanding such deterrent forces, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission said in a draft of its 2012 report to the U.S. Congress.
Beijing is "on the cusp of attaining a credible nuclear triad of land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched ballistic missiles, and air-dropped nuclear bombs," the report says.

Stop buying Chinese.
Stop it. Stop sending jobs to China. Stop sending money there. Stop it now.
China is using America.
And yet another victory for “Free Trade.”
Man, the Free Traders are on a roll. Not two decades after we ceased needing to worry about the USSR and their nuclear arsenal, we’ve handed the communists (remember them? They’re the people and political philosophy who were are #1 enemy for 50 years) a gift of a couple trillion dollars in hard currency for crap we’ve bought at Walmart and to buy our own intellectual property, much of which has been stolen outright from US corporations.
Brilliant own goal, Free Traders.
Gee, I wonder who arranged for the Chinese commies to get the missle guidance technology they will be employing in their missles???
Does the name Johnny Chung ring a bell ?? Chinagate anyone?
And the perps still walk the streets in America as free people after this treason.
And Hussein wants to shrink our navy.
They don’t need nukes to bring us to our knees. Just making
the yuan the world’s new reserve currency will do the trick.
The ren-min-bee doesn’t have the credibility, especially among the western hemisphere. There’s another currency in the running for “world currency”, even though it seems unlikely right now.
Clinton’s gift just keeps on giving.
Clintoon, Loral & Co. Chung was the bagman, IIRC.
On the “bright” side: If the Chinese subs are of the same quality as the Chinese crap in our stores, they will all sink within a month.
